Born: December 1854, Linn County, Missouri.
Adoniram was the son of 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, minister Thomas Benton McComb, who had moved to the area in the 1850’s to get the Baptist church established in Texas.
Adoniram was in Colorado City, Texas, in 1889, and Kansas City, Missouri, in January 1931.
