Help! Looking for photo, newspaper, or bible records of Maria Antoinette Buchan, 5th daughter of James & Caroline Buchan. She was born on Sept 6, 1836 in Rochester, NY. No other information of her is known, except she may have died in 1865.

Hi,

Maria is with her family in 1860 in Rochester, NY.

In 1870 she isn't with her father, his new wife and her sister Jessie. I don't know if she married or died.

Maria Antoinette Buchan, b. 6 Sept 1836, Rochester and d. 30 Aug 1865, Rochester.

Mary Buchan
Born: Unknonw
Died: 1885
Buried: mount Hope Cemetery, Rochester, Monroe, NY

I'd look for her newspaper death notice. I'd contact the Monroe County Library System, www3.libraryweb.org/lh.aspx?id=963 who has an index to Rochester newspapers 1818-1897.

The Monroe County newspapers are on microfilm at the new York State Library, www.nysl.nysed.gov/nysnp/all/428.htm. Successful Searching!

Mary or Marie Buchan is NOT listed in the 1865 to 1885 newspapers indexes. Plenty of other Buchans, but not her. And the 1885 Mary Buchan who dies is 12 days old. Have you tried the early church registers at: http://crpc.nyrgs.org/show.php?q=2 ?
