Duncan Buie was born on Islay, Scotland and came to Canada at the age of
16. A few years later he moved to Ashtabula County, Ohio. Very little is known about him and perhaps a search of Canadian records might reveal his parent's names. Several Buie families moved from Islay to Ontario during the same period and most likely Duncan is connected to them. Considerable additional information on Duncan Buie has been added.

Family Group M
Daniel Buie of Moore County, North Carolina
Daniel Buie is first encountered in North Carolina in 1756 when he bought 100 acres on Buie's Creek from Gilbert Buie and 160 acres on the Cape Fear River opposite Fox Island from John McDaniel. In Daniel's 1795 will, probated in Moore County, he left his son Angus a total of 200 acres on Daniel Buie's Creek located on the Cape Fear in Cumberland County. Daniel Buie held lands on the Cape Fear Jumping Run, east side of Upper Little River, and Buie's Creek. His wife's name is unknown and his children are discussed in the order they appeared in the 1795 will.
Daniel Buie b. ca. 1735 Scotland, d. 1795, Moore County, N.C., wife unknown, his son
Gilbert Buie b. before 1775, Cumberland Co., N.C., d. probably Maury Co., Tenn.
Gilbert received 160 acres located on the south side of the northwest branch of the Cape Fear River, a portion of which he sold to Daniel McLean in 1804. Gilbert lived in Moore County, and by 1820 he had moved with his brother William to the headwaters of the Big Bigby River in Maury County, Tennessee where he was recorded as having two males and one female, ages less than 10 and one male and two females ages 10-16 in his household. Gilbert was listed as age greater than 45. Maury County records contain several Buie's who are not descendents of William Buie (Ma5). Daniel Buie married Elanor Levin in 1824. Cornelius Buie married Mary Young on 9-28-1833 and moved to Texas (see Family Group EE). Daniel and Cornelius could belong to the Hardin and Wayne County Buies. Benjamin F. Buie and Thomas J. Buie also lived in Maury County and although possibly descendents of Gilbert Buie, they may have previously lived in Davidson County and were descendents of Malcolm Buie (see Family GroupHH). Benjamin F. Buie married Mary Spear in Lawrence County in 1850 and was a newspaper journalist in Maury County. Thomas J. Buie, b. 2-29-1828, Tenn., d. 7-18-1860, married Mary D. Craig, 9-5-1847, Lawrence County and had two children, Martha V. b. ca. 1855 and John W. b. ca. 1858, m. Laura Ramsey, 1887, Lawrence Co. Thomas J. Buie must have been a close relative of the William Buie descendents for he is buried with many of them in the Pleasant Garden Cemetery.
Alexander received land on the east side of Upper Little River and also 50 acres on Jumping Run "where he now lives". Alexander's 1818 will, probated in Moore County, directed his land on the northeast side of Upper Liftle River to be equally divided between his wife and children when his youngest child became of age. Alexander's widow Margaret and her family attended the Mt. Pisgah Presbyterian Church. None of the children were married in the 1850 census of Moore County, and are presumed to have left no descendents. In Daniel McLean's 1838 Cumberland County will he mentions his sister Margaret Buie leading the compilers to speculate that her maiden name was Margaret McLean.
John Buie, b. ca. 1790, originally of the island of Jura or Islay, was a sea captain reportedly serving in the British Navy. He had one known son, Archibald, who married Ann Sinclair, daughter of a captain Sinclair. Archibald and Ann lived at Bowmore and both died there about 1850 leaving three small children, Jessie, John and Neill. The youngsters joined with the Donald Darroch family in immigrating to Canada in 1853 and settled at Arran Township, Bruce County, Ontario.
The information on this family line was provided by Mrs. Virginia Darroch Douglas of Bethesda, Maryland, Mrs. Pat Buie Beadles from Blandville, Kentucky and much of the original research was initiated by Christine Buie of Kansas City, Kansas.
John Buie and his wife, Annie McKay, were natives of Islay, Scotland. John was born about 1755 in Scotland and research indicates he was probably married twice. Also, some records indicate he had a nephew named Angus Buie who also lived on Islay and later settled in Sunnidale Township, Simcoe County, Ontario. John and Annie apparently came to Ontario around 1832 followed soon by their children and grandchildren.
Information on this family group was provided by John Buie, Gore Bay, Ontario and Allan Blair, Coilingwood, Ontario, and consists of a lineage from John Buie to Angus Verden Buie.
