Family Group S
John Buie, Sr., (and Elizabeth) of North Carolina and Union Church, Mississippi
John Buie, Sr. was born in 1751 and, although his birthplace is uncertain,
the compilers favor the Buies Creek area of what is now Harnett County, North Carolina rather than Scotland. After his marriage about 1772, he first lived in Cumberland County until 1784 when he acquired land near Bear Swamp in Robeson Cdunty. John's wife, whose name was Elizabeth, died around 1795 in Robeson County and afterwards the older children took care of their younger siblings. Several of John's children including Margaret, Sarah, Malcolm, Neill and Duncan in 1809 moved to Union Church, Mississippi where Neill and Malcolm were charter members in 1817. In January, 1820, John Buie, Sr. "to enjoy the company of my children" arrived in Union Church with John, Jr., Jennet, Catherine, Rebecca, and Anabel. They were added to the church membership roll on October 15. John Buie, Sr. was later named an elder at Union Church and served in that position until his death.
The compilers believe that John Buie, Sr. was related closely to Malcolm Buie (Family Group C) and Mary Buie (Family Group R) and his children and grandchildren were personally close to the family of Archibald B. Buie (Da1bl), but the exact family relationships have not yet been discovered.
John Buie, Sr. b. 1-26-1751, probably Bladen Co. (now Harnett), N.C., d. 8-27-1831, Union Church, Miss.
Further notes on John and Elizabeth's daughter Sarah Elizabeth:
Sarah Elizabeth Buie b. 3-5-1775, Cumberland Co., N.C., d. 5-12-1820, Jefferson Co., Miss. m. Archibald Smith, Sr. b. N.C., d. Miss.
Archibald and Sarah Smith were married in North Carolina and in 1817 were listed as charter members of Union Church. In 1825, John Buie, Sr. wrote about Sarah's demise: "Sarah died in child birth, the child is living; we raised it by hand ourselves, and is now, almost as great comfort and satisfaction to us as her mother was. She has never went to school, yet, by her own industry at home, and a little assistance, she has learned to read tolerable well. Sarah left four sons and a daughter besides her. They are living to themselves, a half mile from me. They are well and are doing tolerable well. Their father has married as I suspect you heard and is living about a mile from me. He and his family are Well." Descendants of John Buie
Family Group T
Duncan Buie (and Sarah) of Scotland and Raiford's Creek, Cumberland County, North Carolina
Duncan Buie was born in Scotland undoubtedly on the island of Jura in 1724.
He came to North Carolina in 1739 and first lived on the Upper Cape Fear River near Buies Creek and acquired land in 1750. About 1755 he moved to the Barbeque Creek area and was named an elder at Barbeque church in 1765. He was known for his piety and knowledge of church doctrine. During the Revolution, perhaps for political reasons, Duncan left Barbeque and settled near the mouth of Raifords Creek opposite Bluff Church on the Cape Fear. Duncan Buie died on October 10, 1819 at the home of his son, John Buie, in Cumberland County.
Records indicate his wife's name was Sarah. His sons and grandsons figured prominently in the estate records of many other Buies of Cumberland County including Family Groups DD, FF and the early 1767 immigrants; however, the relationship of Duncan to these Buies is not clear.
This family group is not complete. Numerous descendents named Buie live in Fayetteville, North Carolina; however, many did not respond to inquiries asking for additional information on their families. Therefore, much of the data on this family group is based upon wills, estate records, church records, and vital statistics.
Several descendents of female Buie lines contributed greatly including Howard M. Yost, Mary (McQueen) MacPherson of Fayetteville, North Carolina, Col. Victor Clark of Dallas, Texas. Neil D. Buie, now deceased, of Atlanta, Georgia, and Geraldine (Buie) Rudisill of Spring Grove, Pennsylvania, provided descendents of Daniel McD. Buie and George McD. Buie respectively. The books Lumber River Scot and Archibald McKay, located in the North Carolina State Library in Raleigh, were also helpful.
Duncan Buie "Raiford Creek" b. ca. 1724, Jura, Scotland, d. 10-10-1819, Cumberland Co., N.C., bur. Old Bluff Church, Cumberland Co., NC
Further notes on Duncan' and Sarah's son Duncan
Duncan Buie, Jr., b. ca. 1748, Bladen (now Harnett) Co., N.C.
Duncan Buie, Jr. first appears in Cumberland County tax records in 1777. There is no record of his marriage or of any descendents; however, he was administrator of the estates of his nieces Sarah Clark (1814), Catherine Clark (1816), his father Duncan Buie, Sr. (1820), and his brother-in-law Malcolm Clark (1794) all in Cumberland County, and Hugh Brown (1789) of Robeson County.
Further notes on Duncan' and Sarah's son John
John Buie b. ca. 1750, Bladen (now Harnett) Co., N.C., d. 1825, Cumberland County, NC
Further notes on John's daughter Catherine
Unfortunately, only Catherine (Buie) McPherson of the above named children was successfully traced. It is known that Archibald Buie died ca. 1820-25 and records indicate he left no children. Duncan is possibly the "Red" Duncan Buie who lived in the 71st District (see Family Group FF). An Alexander Buie died in 1831 and a Malcolm Buie died in 1846, both in Cumberland County. There is a strong possiblity that the sons of John Buie are ancestors of many of the Cumberland and even Harnett County Buies and further research is indicated. In 1982, Margaret Buie, age 93, of Linden, North Carolina, informed the compilers "I was married to Elijah Buie. Elijah died in 1958. His father was Alex Buie and his grandfather was John "Band" Buie. My husband had brothers and sisters named Jessie, Rosetta, John, Lizzie, Janie, and George". This group was not located in census records and the relationship to John Buie of Raiford Creek is presently unknown. Catherine Buie b. 6-15-1800, Cumberland Co., N.C., d. 9-16-1874, Cumberland Co., N.C.
m. Alexander MacPherson, 12-14-1836 (marriage bond), Cumberland Co., N.C.
Catherine was a charter member of MacPherson Presbyterian Church in Cumberland Co., N.C.
Archibald Buie of Gum Swamp, Cumberland County, North Carolina
and Catherine Shaw
Archibald Buie first acquired land on Gum Swamp in Cumberland County by land grant in 1765 and the compilers think that he was also called Archibald Buie of Cypress Swamp in the very early records. He lived within the Barbeque District of Cumberland County but also owned land in Moore County. In 1765, he was named an elder at Barbeque along with Duncan Buie (Family Group T see above), Gilbert Clark, and Daniel Cameron who were all noted to be pious men and devoted to their duties as elders. Archibald married Catherine Shaw also of Cumberland County. It is generally accepted that Archibald was born in Jura, Scotland and came to North Carolina as a young man.

Anyone know brother/sisters, parents???
