Archibald Buie was born in North Carolina about 1770-75 and came to Trigg County, Kentucky around 1810. The only clue concerning his parents are family traditions among the Union Church, Mississippi Buies which mention the brothers Neil and Gilbert (Family Groups E and F) having a brother who went to Kentucky and indeed, their father Gilbert names a son Archibald in the 1799 Cumberland County will. Archibald first appears in Trigg County, Kentucky in the 1820 census. There was a Daniel D. Buie born in 1791 in North Carolina who married Nancy Blakeley in Christian County, Kentucky in 1818 and moved to Saline County, Missouri. Daniel D. could have been Archibald's son by a previous marriage although this assumption is purely speculative. See below.

Family Group Q
Rev. Daniel Buie and Nancy (Blakeley)Buie of North Carolina, Kentucky, and Missouri
Daniel Buie was born October 31, 1791, in North Carolina and married Nancy Blakeley in Christian County, Kentucky in 1818. Soon thereafter, Daniel moved to Missouri in a one-horse cart finally settling near Marshall in Saline County. Daniel Buie was reported to have been the first Presbyterian preacher in Missouri.
Since the only other Buie living in the Christian County, Kentucky area was Archibald Buie (Family Group P), the compilers speculate that Daniel may have been his son or brother and was probably born in Cumberland County, North Carolina.

A study of the Buie family would not be complete without mention of Mary Buie
and her family. According to family tradition, Mary was born on the island of Jura in Scotland around 1730 and died about 1825 in Robeson County, North Carolina, at
the age of nearly 100. She was not only a Buie, but also was the ancestress of many families mentioned in this book since numerous Browns married Buies. Mary left Jura when she was a young girl and came to the Upper Cape Fear region of North Carolina. About 1747, she married Hugh Brown. Surely Mary Buie deserves a special remembrance by her many descendents which number in the thousands, only a few of which can be presented in this study.
The compilers have not been able to connect Mary with other early Buies of
North Carolina, but do believe she was most closely related to Malcolm Buie (Family Group C) and John Buie (Family Group S). Mrs. Kate McGeachey Buie of Red Springs stated that Malcolm and Mary were "not very near kin". In 1772, Malcolm proved a deed in Bladen County (now Robeson) conveying land from Hugh Brown to Neill Brown. In his letters to Neill Brown from Union Church, John Buie mentiond "our youthful companions" inferring that the two lived in close proximity during their early years. Also, the Browns, Malcolm and John lived in the same vicinity in Robeson County.
Hugh Brown was born in Melford, Argyllshire Scotland in 1716. He married his first wife in Scotland and they had two sons named Daniel Brown, born March 20, 1740 and Peter Brown, born August 5, 1745. In 1745, Hugh and his brother Duncan left Clochan, Scotland and came to North Carolina. About 1746, Hugh's first wife died and he later married Mary Buie. Hugh and Duncan left a brother, John Brown, in Scotland who had two sons named Neill Brown of Melford and Alexander Brown of Islay. John also had several daughters. Duncan died in Cumberland County, North Carolina in 1761 and left his property to his wife Ann and his brother Hugh's sons, Daniel, Peter, Neill and John. No children were mentioned. Little else is known about Daniel and Peter Brown except that they resided in Cumberland County in 1761.
Hugh Brown first lived on the Cape Fear River near the present town of Wade, but later moved to Robeson County near Richland Swamp close to Philadelphus. He died in 1794 and was buried in the Brown Cemetery where many of his descendents are also buried.
The initial research on the Brown family was performed by a descendent, Mrs. Emma Davis of Goodwater, Alabama. Later studies were undertaken by Z. T. Fulmore of Robeson County and Mrs. Mary (Ford) Kennerly. More recently, the family was extensively investigated by Bradley M. Buie of Youngsville, North Carolina who provided the information for this publication. Many of the letters of Neill Brown, rich in genealogical information and family lore are on file at the University of North Carolina Library at Chapel Hill. Only the first few generations are discussed with the intermarried Buie families referred to their respective family groups. A complete list of these prolific families would and certainly should be the subject of a book devoted solely to them.
