My research on the Buie family indicates that I am the great great grandson of William W. Buie and Martha F. Nichols. William, I believe, was son of John Buie, Sr., and brother of John Buie, Jr., Cornelius Buie and Duncan R. Buie, all of which lived in Hardin County, Tennessee, from the late 1820's until the late 1840's and Duncan even after 1850. This John, Jr. moved to Conway County, Arkansas, before 1850,William moved to Hot Spring County, Arkansas, in 1847,and Cornelius died in Hardin County, Tennessee, in 1838. This is not the Cornelius that married Mary Young in Tennessee. John Buie, Sr., has become known as "The Patriot" because of his Revolution War service which was spelled out in his pension application filed in Hardin County in 1835. From all indications from this pension record he was born in Scotland in 1759 and was the son of Duncan. This Duncan Buie is probably the Duncan who came with his wife and young son to America in 1867. This Duncan's last name was given as Buea as were the other Buies on the ship, the General Wolfe. About 60 highlander from Jura, Argull, were on this ship and landed at Brunswick, North Carolina on November 4, 1767. There were several other Buie's (Buea) on this ship, probably all part of the same family. Please let me hear from anyone interested in the Buie family. I need more information to tie up some loose ends and I will certainly share more information.
