Hi David, While checking on another family, I have this information of Amelia T/Permelia Buchanan and thought you might like to have it. She was the d/o William & Mary O'Neil/O'Neal Buchanan, b. Oct. 1836, m. 1st Jan. 19, 1851 Ritchie County, WV, Benjamin P. Leasure also known as Benona & Benony, Lazure/Lazier. 2nd m. Patrick Deem Widower. She was not born in Buchanan, WV,but in Monongalia County, WV. Her children are: Mary E. Leasure, b 1852, Henry Leasure, b. 1854, George W. Leasure, b. 1855, Candance L. b. 1856, Hannah V., b. 1858, Martha A. 1859, Jasper N., b. 1861. Children of Amelia Buchanan and Patrick Deem are: Patrick, b. 1864, Abraham, b. 1866, Nephthalim, b. 1867, William M., b. 1869, John Wesley, b. 1874, James, b. 1875, Thomas, b. 1879, Patrick A., b. 1881. On the first marriage record she is listed as S. Amelia T., but on the second marriage record she is listed as Permelia L. The 1850 Ritchie Co. census she is in her mother's household as Amelia. She is found in the 1860 Ritchie co. census with husband, Benjamin Leasure, as Amerlia T. and in the 1870 census married to Patrick, listed as Amelia. Patrick Deem and his first wife, Mary, is found in the 1860 census for Ritchie Co. with eight children: Elizabeth, Jacob, Abraham, Isaac, Andrew, Nancy, Catherine and William. In the 1870 census for Patrick & Amelia, there is listed a Mary L. age 9, who must have been the last child of Mary. In the Wirt county and 1910 census Amelia said she had 20 pregnancies with 12 living children. Her father, William Buchanan, b. abt. 1790 Pa. and mother, Mary O'Neil/O'Neal, abt. 1799, Pa. They had 13 children, some born in Green County, Pa. and some in Wv. In one death notice it was stated that they were a descendent of the 15th President of the United States, James Buchanan. Haven't verified that information as yet. Thanks, Mary Ann
