Surnames: Burchanan, Critchfield, Daniels
Found some info. that you might be interested in and am hoping you will share the info. you learned from your sister-in-law about Birginia Buchanan Daniels with me. In exchange for information about Birginia and her mother Jennie Critchfield Buchanan, I would be happy to share a photo of my granduncle Bert and two photos of his unmarked gravesite.

"Bert" [Burgin Grover]Buchanan was b. 18 Mar 1885 in NC to Joseph Leonard Buchanan and Nancy Jane Hicks. The archived newspaper "Challis Messenger" posted a death announcement for Bert Burchanan. Although Bert was b. 18 Mar 1885 his death announcement gave his birthdate as 18 Mar 1891. He d. 19 Jun 1955. It also stated Bert was a long time resident of Challis, ID. He was working on a farm East of Challis, ID with Sam Hessian when he complained of a sharp pain in his side. Bert went to the truck and laid down while Sam was finishing up with what he was doing. Sam then drove Bert to see Dr. Robert F Barter. Bert passed away on 19 June 1955. His gravesite is located at 1.3 mi. above Custer, ID, on west side of the road, Section 8, Row 9, Lot B. Info. comes from M. Q. a researcher in Idaho who also went to Bert's unmarked gravesite at the Custer Cemetery, Challis, ID and found it with no marker.
[I do not live anywhere near ID so am greatly indebdted to her for her generosity!]


Am hopeful that descendants and or relatives might be interested in joining together to have a marker made and laid on Bert's Buchanan grave.
