BUCHANAN, Sarah, pioneer, died in Buchanan's Station, Tennessee, 23 November, 1831. She was the wife of Maj. Buchanan, in command of a frontier fort, and displayed much bravery on many occasions. At one time, while riding in the woods with a kinswoman she was intercepted by a party of Indians, whom the women deceived by assuming the positions of men on horseback and charging on the savages with furious yells. During the war with the Creeks and Cumberland's in 1792 the Indians attacked the fort. When the bullets gave out, Mrs. Buchanan was at hand with an apron full molded from pewter plates and spoons during the progress of the fight. She cheered the defenders of the fort in every possible way during the long attack, and after its repulse became celebrated as the greatest heroine of the west.
