I have Ade Buchanan married Dollie Ledford and Dollie may have been married to a Mr. Ward. Don't have Peggy Ward. All the children I know of Dollie and Ade Buchanan are Bernice, Helen, Edith and several other unknown kids.
Was Dollie Ledford a twin of Annie Ledford? Annie Ledford married William Buchanan.
Annie and Dollie were children of Buena Childers and A.D. Ledford. Annie's brother Dave married Dorothy Ollis.
May be same tree....Did your A.D. Ledford marry Buena Childers and after her death,a woman whose name I think was to Donie?
Do you have a Rube, Jess, Nora, or Mary Ledford. Mary Ledford married Roby Burleson and had two children Ed and Hobert. Mary previously had another child named Hattie.

The only Ollis have is the Dorothy,who married Dave Ledford. Don't currently have a Boston Ollis in the fam tree.

I have Ade Buchanan that married Dolly Ledford with child A.D.Buchanan. Does Peggy Ward fit into your Ward line - daughter of William Ward. Does that Ollis tie to Boston Ollis?

Our family tree includes a Virgil Buchanan who married unknown. Do not know Arron, Fonzer or Russell Buchanan. Could have been brothers?

Dave Ledford Married Dorothy Ollis. Dave's brothers were Jess, Stokes, & Rube. Dave and Dorothy had one son, Dave Jr.
Dave's father was A.D. and Mother was Buena Childers.

Don't know if this is the same tree.

I am interested in your Buchanan, Ward, and Ollis information. The line I am interested goes back to Arron Buchanan followed by Russell Buchanan and eventually down to Fonzer Buchanan that married Belle Thomas.

In looking through all this stuff, I found a post-it note from Norma that says her two cousins, Darrell Ledford (Leroy's brother) & Arlie Wolf put this geneology together. I'm sure Leroy has a copy and probably more information as well -

In response to your Mitchell County Query concerning the Ledford and Buchanan families:
I know Donie Mama Ledford's son, LeRoy. He writes a weekly column for the Mitchell Co. newspaper called "Donie Mama's Back Porch"
Leroy's family goes back to Joseph Buchanan - b. 1767, d. after 1850, married to Sarah Jones - b. May 2, 1772 in Virginia, d. after 1840.
I got this information from my great aunt, Norma McCoury Buchanan. I have several pages, written in 'long-hand'
Will be happy to send you a copy.
