  1. Patty, when I looked at the marriage certificate of James Buchanan and Sarah Watson, I was thrilled to see the signature of my grandfather WA Buchanan (Jim’s brother) as Interpreter. Since Jim was deaf, he needed a sign-language interpreter, and my grandfather served that role. As a young child, I remember seeing my grandfather deeply engaged in a sign-language conversation with another man. I asked Dad what they were doing. He said “They are talking in sign language.” Dad then proceeded to show me a few common signs.

    I had basically forgotten all about it until a cousin mentioned that her mother or grandmother knew sign-language. Then suddenly a light went on. Obviously ALL of John and Isabel’s children knew sign-language so they could communicate with Uncle Jim!

    That makes perfect sense. James was deaf as a result of Scarlet Fever as a toddler. So for his siblings to communicate with him they would all have to know it. I know my mother Dorothy M. Buchanan, who was James and Sarah’s daughter knew sign language. I remember one day when I was a child she was signing to someone at a store who was deaf and I was watching very puzzled because I didn’t know she knew sign language. She explained how her Dad got to be deaf and it was just a second language they all knew growing up.
