How do you figure that Buchanan was a "typical southern hypocrite"?  He was born in Cove Gap, Franklin County, Pennsylvania and lived in Lancaster County, Pa. most of his life.  His estate there was called Wheatland.  Buchanan died on June 1, 1868, at the age of 77 at his home at Wheatland and was interred in Woodward Hill Cemetery in Lancaster.
