Daniel Buie and John Buie of North Carolina and Union Church, Mississippi
Daniel and John Buie moved from North Carolina to Union Church, Mississippi and were listed as charter members of the Presbyterian Church there in 1817. Although not explicitly stated, they were undoubtedly brothers. The compilers have not determined who their ancestors are but believe John and Daniel lived at one time in Robeson County, North Carolina, and may be descendents of Capt. Daniel Buie who died during the Revolution.
The compilers would like to thank Banks McLaurin of Dallas, Tex., Truly Cupit of Union Church, Mississippi, and Carlton Jerry of Junction City, Arkansas for their help in preparing this family group. Also, Miss Lottie Warren, now deceased, of Union Church supplied the compilers with valuable church records despite failing health and advancing years. Descendants of Daniel and John Buie

William Buie of Scotland, Canada, and British Guyana
Perhaps two of the most colorful and interesting participants in Buie family history were William Buie and his son Arthur. Born on the island of Wiay in :he Hebrides of Scotland, William Buie immigrated to Canada where he married Madamoiselle Destimeauvile deBeaumouchel. They had two children: Victoria, born in 1837 and Arthur, born in 1840. After a short career as a banker in New York, William accepted a position in the administrative offices in British Guyaha. Fearing that the tropical climate would be detrimental to their children's health, William and his wife trusted them to the care of her sisters in Montreal and left Canada, however WillJam's wife unfortunately fell ill shortly after their arrival in Guyaha and died.
When he reached the age of 16, Arthur rejoined his father in Guyana, who had in the meantime remarried and was a proprietor of a sugar plantation. William decided that Arthur needed further education and sent him to Dublin. Arthur soon grew dis-satisfied with school, broke ties with his father, and went to Paris and became a journalist. He later returned to Montreal where he founded a literary review written in French called "La Lanterne". Arthur changed his last name to "Buies" to accomodate the French language.
The compilers add that the following family was found in the 1900 census for Chicago: John M. Buie, b. 11-1857 British Guyaha, Madaline Buie (wife) b. 8-1861 England, Madaline E. Buie (daughter) b. 3-1886 Ill., Mary Buie (daughter) b. 8-1888 Ill. It is not established that John M. Buie was the son of William Buie by his second marriage. Descendants of William Buie

Angus Buie of North Carolina and Catahoula Parish, Louisiana
According to family tradition, Angus Buie was a cousin rather than a brother to Daniel, Neill, Gilbert and Malcolm Buie (Family Group A) who all at one time also lived in Catahoula Parish. He may have been the son of Gilbert Buie (will probated 1799, Cumberland County, North Carolina) or Daniel Buie (Family Group M). Angus died in 1829 and Neill Buie was named administrator of the estate.
Significant information on this group was provided by Dick Humble of Lafayette La., Osee W. Zeagler of Baton Rouge, La., James Boyce of Cold Springs, Tex., Eva Humble of Columbia, La., and George A. Humble. Angus Buie is listed as the son of Gilbert Buie on C. Lennon's page at the Buie Surname Resource Center. Can anyone clarify?? Descedants of Angus Buie

Neill Buie, Sr. of Cumberland County, North Carolina
Most of the information on the early history of this family group is based on an account written by Duncan Campbell Buie in 1950 shortly before his death. He stated that Neill Buie, Sr. and his wife came to North Carolina about 1735 with four children named Martha, Nancy, Daniel, and Duncan. Six months after their arrival, another son, Neill Buie, Jr., was born who was the only child to ever marry.
The compilers believe that the date "1735" is probably incorrect and rather, Neill Buie, Jr. was born about 1770. Census records, however, do verify in some degree Duncan Campbell Buie's narrative since in the 1810 Cumberland County census page 246, Daniel Buie is listed living next to Neill with two males, ages 24-45, one female, age 26-45, and one female over age 45 in Daniel's household.
Neill Buie, Jr. lived in the Carver's Creek and Raiford's Creek area just north of Fayetteville in Cumberland County. He has not been connected to the other Buies living in this locality.
Contributing information on this family group were Elizabeth Ann (Buie) Blinder of Bethesda, Maryland, Katherine Neill (Monroe) Shuman of Orlando, Florida, Virginia Montrose (Monroe) McColl of Raeford, North Carolina, Frances (Thigpen) Myers of Fayetteville, North Carolina, Gayland H. Smith of Fayetteville, North Carolina, and Eva Mae (Buie) Little of Linden, North Carolina. Mrs. Myers provided much general information on the Cumberland County Buie families including valuable cemetery records, vital records, and church histories. Descendants of Neill Buie
Family Group DD Addendum
Recently, the compilers have corresponded with Mrs. Marvin R. Graham, 830 Graham Rd., Fayetteville, North Carolina who located an old wooden box that belonged to her mother, Elizabeth (Autry) Buie. The box contained papers which relate a slightly different version of the early history of Family Group DD: "John Buie of the Island of Jura immigrated to this country in 1768. His son, Neill Buie (was) born October, 1769. Neill Buie's son was John Buie, born 1810. John Buie's wife was Sophiah Eccles, born 1811".
