Title: Emily and Elizabeth Buchanan
Post by: Gayle Sanders on Tuesday 02 February 16 23:06 GMT (UK)
Good Evening,

I'm looking for some information on my 2nd Great Aunts,  Emily Buchananwas born in Newport News Virginia USA  1905. father died and came back to Paisley in Scotland then ended up in Western Australia.   Elizabeth was born in 1906. She ended up in Australia as well and I think they died in 1993. I'm just looking for any information.  I think they owned a fruit farm.  Any information would be amazing.

Thank you

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=562844.0  someone else looking for these sisters'  Dad, James Buchanan who died Newport News, USA.

Perhaps they have detailed info on the two sisters, perhaps you could send a Personal Message to the other enquirer.

In the meanwhile, I will ask one of the volunteer moderators to move this thread to the main Australia board as it has landed itself on the Lookups completed board.   :)

Cheers,  JM
