The Buchanan Family 

5 Generations

26 March 2006


All five generations of Isabella Buchananís family were in Lismore to celebrate Mothering Sunday. Isabella (Nurse Buchanan as she is still known today) came to Lismore to nurse in 1941 in the days before there was any doctor let alone a medical infrastructure and worked until she retired in 1981. She married the late Hugh Buchanan in 1942 and had 2 children, Bessie who lives in Lismore and Duncan in South Australia, as well as 7 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren and one great great grandchild. On Sunday she celebrated with her daughter Bessieís family: granddaughter Louise, great granddaughter Samantha and great great grandson Matthew who is 6 months old.
