Family Group EE
John Buie, Sr. of North and South Carolina and Hardin County, Tennessee
This family group is one of the most interesting but yet challanging since much is known of their early history and more recent lines; however, many of the intermediate generations remain unnconnected. According to his pension application dated March 7, 1835 in Hardin County, Tennessee, John Buie was born in Scotland in 1759 and came with his father Duncan Buie to Cumberland County, North Carolina before the Revolution. John Buie enlisted in the American army under Capt. Clark's command in 1776, served six months, and then in 1779 moved to the 96th District of South Carolina where he again enlisted and served in the American army. John apparently moved back to North Carolina and may be the John who lived on Beaver Creek and later Richmond County in the mid 1780s (see discussion on the 1767 immigrants and Family Group GG). John Buie first appeared in Tennessee in the 1830 Hardin County census and again was listed in the 1840 census as "John Buie, Sr." Also enumerated in the 1840 Hardin County census were John Buie, Jr. and Duncan R. Buie. Additional Buies were filed in Hardin County tax lists which follow: 1833, Cornelius Buie, John Buie; 1836, John Buie, William Buie, Cornelius Buie; 1837, William Buie, and Cornelius Buie. Duncan R. Buie, listed as age 55, born in North Carolina, was in the 1850 Hardin County census along with Flora, age 50; Mary J., age 18; and Sarah, age 19, all born in North Carolina. Cornelius Buie, who died in 1838 in Hardin County, is also mentioned in Wayne County records. Also, in the Wayne County 1840 census are Daniel Buie and "Alford" Buie (Alfred Moore Buie). The administrator of Cornelius Buie's estate was John Buie and mentioned among the purchasers were Duncan Buie, Elizabeth Buie, and John and Margaret Buie. From the available data concerning John Buie, Sr., the compilers offer the following theories. He and his father, Duncan, are probably the ones listed as arriving in Brunswick from Jura in November, 1767, and are thus more closely related to the Buies of Rockfish and Beaver Creeks in Cumberland County. It is entirely plausible that Duncan R. Buie, John Buie, Jr., Cornelius Buie, Daniel and Alfred Buie of Wayne County and possibly William Washington Buie are his descendents if not his sons. The descendents of John Buie, Jr. allege that John Jr.'s father lived to be about 100 years of age and had 11 or 12 sons.
A Cornelius Buie, b. ca. 1814 in Tennessee, married Mary Young, 9-28-1833, in Maury County, moved to Fannin County, Texas and according to the census, had the following children: James Buie, b. 1840, Tenn.; Richard C. Buie, b. 1844, Tenn.; Henry T. Buie, b. 1850, Miss.; Thomas D. Buie, b. 1854, Miss. There were probably four more children namely Nathanlei Buie, Cornelius Buie, Jr., b. 1844, Sarah Buie, and Mary Buie. Henry T. Buie married C. J. , b. 1854, Tex., moved to Washington Co., Ark. and had children, William B. Buie, b. 1875, Tex. and Cornelius Buie b. 1879, Ark. Richard C. Buie married Mary ? b. 1850, Tex. and had the following children all born in Texas: Susana Buie, b. 1867; Charlie R. Buie, b. 1869; Presley C. Buie, b. 1872; Henry E. Buie, b. 1876; and Katie Belle Buie, b. 1879. The compilers believe that Cornelius Buie is more closely related to Family Group EE rather than the Maury County Buies (see discussion Gilbert Buie Mal).
Family Group FF
"Red" Duncan Buie and Flora Baker of Cumberland County, North Carolina
"Red" Duncan Buie, so named because of his red hair, and his wife Flora lived in the 71st District of Cumberland County and attended Camp Ground Methodist Church. From existing available records, the compilers suggest that he may be the son of John Buie who died in 1825 (Family Group T). Catherine (Buie) MacPherson, daughter of John, and her husband Alexander lived very near Duncan in 1850. Before John Buie's widow Mary (MacPherson) Buie died in 1846, she named her son Duncan Buie and Alexander MacPherson as administrators. Many descendents of "Red" Duncan Buie and Flora Baker live in the Fayetteville area today; however, only a few of their number are presented here. The compilers are grateful to Mr. and Mrs. James Dixon Buie of Fayetteville, Georgia for thief assistance.
