December 1854, Linn County, Missouri.

Adoniram was the 12th of 14 children born to Joseph Buchanan and Sarah Elizabeth McComb, both natives of Kingston, Roane County, Tennessee. In 1867, shortly after the American civil war, the Buchanans moved to a community near Sherman in Grayson County, Texas, purchasing several acres of land and settling near the Elmont Community, a few miles west of Van Alstyne, Texas. They moved to be near Mrs. Buchanan’s brother, Rev. Thomas Benton McComb, who had moved to this area in the 1850’s to get the Baptist church established in Texas. Adoniram was living in Kansas City, Missouri, as of January 1931.
