PEEFACE. 

Two of the objects which the following work was originally in 
tended to accomplish were : (1). To show something concerning 
the ]?arentage, birth-place and early life of the brothers Emanuel 
and Henry Buck, and (2), To show a perfect tracing of every one of 
their lineal descendants, down to the present time. After a patient 
and careful examination of the early New England town and State 
records, and a laborious correspondence with those in charge at 
the various sources of record information in England, I reached tbe 
conclusion that the first mentioned object could only be attained, if 
at all, by an extended personal examination of the records in Eng- 
land, a work necessarily involving much more time and expense 
than I could devote to it. I was therefore reluctantly compelled to 
abandon an object, the attainment of which, would have been of 
great interest to the reader. 

Nor was I long in ascertaining that the accomplishment of the 
second object, would require at least twenty years of labor, in col- 
lecting and arranging the necessary data, and the publication of 
several volumes. Tlie impracticability of such an undertaking, soon 
led me to abandon it. 

As it is, this work, like every other genealogical work, contains 
many errors and important omissions. I have made some, and 
the copyist and printer are each guilty of some. Many more 
must be attributed to the hundreds of correspondents who have 
contribvited to the subject matter. Records in family bibles, fre- 
quently disagree with epitaphs, — particularly in the matter of 
dates, — and the peculiar chirograph}' of the early civil and religious 
record makers, are great impediments to accuracy. Besides, the nu- 
merous changes in the way of births, marriages, deaths and remov- 
als, which have taken place since the spring of 1887, when the la- 
bor of collecting data was broken off, are not noted. It is custo- 
mary, in works of this kind, to interlard them with portraits of the 
wealth}' and more or less distinguished members of the family. 
My experience has been, that few people care f(n' an album in such 
a shape. Such a course, usually creates jealousy in the minds of 
some, and places the cost of the book beyond the reach of a great 
many. For these reasons I concluded not to adopt such a course. 
There are a few instances m the tracing of the descendants of James 



Buck and Elizabetli Sherman wliere I have baen unable to fill in all 
the links. Such instances are owintj;- to the refusal of certain per- 
sons to answer \nquiries, for reasfins best known to themselves, 
and, where they occur, the reasons are stated. Where the matter 
has been furnished me concerning tlje lives and characters of in- 
dividuals, I have inserted it in a condenced form. To many per- 
sons, family origin and lineage, are matters unworthy of con- 
sideration. This is a mistake. I fully believe that respecta- 
bility of origin, adds lustre to fame, — that " the glory of children 
are their fathers." No reasonable man or woman should be insen- 
sible to the value of an honorable origin and descent ; especially, if 
to the chance of earthly fame, there be added the blessed memory 
of the just. Although the present generation may not appreciate 
the labor bestowed upon this work, I am confident in the hope, 
that future generations will dechire it not to have been in vain. 

To whatever of interest or value the readers of this book may 
find, they will be largely indebted to the following individuals : — 
Kev. Charles D. Buck, Middletown, N. J. ; Prof. Merwin S. Turrill 
and Carter Gazley, counsellor at law, Cincinnati, O. ; Eoswell R. 
Buck, Esq., Bufialo, N. Y. ; Mrs. Sarah D. Wheat, Rome Ridge, N. 
Y.; Sherman P. Sedgwick, M. D., Wheaton, Ills.; Minot S. Gid- 
dings, Esq., Bridgeport, Conn. ; Miss Sarah E. Allen, Mr. John S. 
Turrell and Mrs. Rebecca Buck, New Milford, Conn. ;' Mrs, Hattie 
Vail, Vincennes, Ind.; James B. Matson, Esq., Cincinnati, O. ; Sey- 
mour Buck, Savona, N. Y.; Isaac S. Ford, Arlington, Rush Co., 
Ind.; Asaph Buck, Keokuk, Iowa, and many others, whose names 
appear in the work.

THE BUCK F/^MILY. 



ORIGIN OF THE SURNAME. 

The surname Buck, like nearly every other extant surname, has 
been variously written, by those who have borne it in past ages. 

From numerous histories, chronicles, books of travel, biographies, 
public and private records, documents, grave stones, &c., the follow- 
ing versions have been gleaned : 

Boc, Boch, Boclie, Bock, Bocke, Bok,- Boke, Book, Booke, Bouc, 
Bouck, Boucq, Bouk, Bouke, Buc, Buce, Buci, Bucl), Bache, Buck, 
Bucke, Buk, Bake, and Bucq, 

T)ie first six of these, are confined to Germans, or their descend- 
ants, and do not appear of record before tlie fifteenth century, while 
fifteen of the remaining seventeen, are either variations or corrup- 
tions of Ijhc or Buck. 

Antiquarians disagree as to when surnames were first used by 
mankind. It is asserted that they were unknown to the ancients. 
But one of the prophets declares " Another shall subscribe with his 
" hand unto the Lord and surname himself by the name of Israel." — 
(Isaiah 44-5). There are otlier passages in the Old Testament, in- 
dicating that the ancients were not without the idea of surnames. 
In the early state of the Greeks, Romans, Persians, Egyptians, 
Jews, Gauls and Britons, no individual bore more than one name. 
The Romans, however, after they had divided into tribes and become 
numerous and powerful, ado]ited ap]iarently for the convenience of 
identification, three names. But the custom was confined to the 
nobilitv, and to those who had obtained Avealth or distinction. 

The Saxons appear to liave been the first of the nations of Northern 
Europe to use surnames, and to have introduced the custom into 
Gaul, as early as the fifth century, where, stimulated by chivalry and 
fudalism, it took root and spread rapidly, being confined, however, 
to the nobility. The Norman barons, all of whom bore the dignity 
of surnames, introduced the custom into England, where it was at 
once adopted by all orders of the people. It is a fact Avorthy of 
consideration, that the great body of surnames which had been con- 



ferred on or assumed bj the nobility, before, or at the time of the 
Conquest, may with comparative ease be traced to their origin. On 
the other hand, one of the most difficult tasks the genealogist can 
attempt, is to trace to its origin, any one of those surnames which 
were adopted by the common people after the Conquest. The 
reason lies in the fact, that, from the fall of the Eoman Empire to 
the Conquest, the good and bad deeds of the royalty and the no- 
bility — (who alone bore surnames) — were ^perpetuated, not only by 
song, legend and tradition, but by historians, chroniclers and men 
of letters, and thus these surnames have, by the assistance of 
memory and the potent and natural influence of kinship, been pre- 
served through many centuries. While the common people, who 
were rarelly mentioned, except collectively, bore surnames for 
several generations, with no other agencies of perpetuation, than 
memory and tradition. 

For example, the surnames Lovell, Bruce, Percy, Bucl% Harvey and 
a host of others, may be traced centuries back of tlie Conquest. 

Among the early sources prolific of surnames, were animals, — 
principally those Avhicli wei'e the objects of the chase, — ^and their 
characteristics. By prefixing the definite article " le " to the name 
of an animal, a surname was formed whicli in its primary applica- 
tion was a sobriquet, allusive, either to the characteristic qualities 
of the person, to some incident of his life, or to some figure upon 
his standard or shield. Thus, persons possessed of the rapacity of 
the wolf, the cunning of the fox, or the strength of the ox, &c., re- 
ceived such names as le Wolf, le Fox, le Stere, &c. The records of 
medieval times are sprinkled with sucili surnames. 

The surname Le Buc (Buck), is one of this class of names, and is 
allusive to the male of the animal known as the fallow deer, or to 
some of his characteristics. 

About A. D. 640, the Franks, a warlike people, originally inhabit- 
ing Franconia, in Germany, under their leader Pharamond set-tied 
in that part of Gaul, afterwards known as Flanders. Two centuries 
later, a considerable portion of Flanders was governed by a tyrant 
named Phinart. This was in the reign over France, of Clothaire 11. 
of the Merovingian dynasty. 

For many years, a bloody and unceasing struggle for supremacy 
between the Franks and other tribes, had been going on. 

Clothaire II. died A. D. 628, and was succeeded by his son 
Dagobert I. This monarch began a reign which may be regarded 



as the culminating point of the Merovingian dynasty ; for, by it, the 
Franks acquired a decided preponderance among the western 
nations. But although Dagobert's title was recognized from the 
Weser to the Pyrenees, and from the Ocean to the boundaries of 
Bohemia, his authority was little respected. He was little more 
than King in name. To maintain their tottering power and preserve 
the integrity of their domains, his predecessors had from time to 
time, made so many concessions to the proud and refractory vassals 
— the Counts, Signeurs and Lords — that these gentr}^ and their 
adherents, had well nigh usurped the jurisdiction of the Crown. 
Their rights were hereditary and irrevocable, and they claimed and 
exercised the power of appointing the judges and tribunals of their 
respective territories. 

Seven years before, in order to appease the clamor of tlie rebel- 
lious Northern nobles, Clothaire had proclaimed Dagobert King of 
Austrasia, one of the three divisions into which France was then 
divided. Upon his succession to the throne, Dagobert set about 
efifecting some reforms in his domains. By personally visiting the 
provinces, dispensing justice, and redressing grievances, he curbed 
the cruelty and rapacity of the lauded nobles, with considerable 
success. 

In A. D. 621, lie divided that portion of his domains called Aus- 
trasia, into several provinces, the government of Avhich, he bestowed 
upon his most trusty knights. 

Among the distinguished personages who rendered Dagobert 
invaluable services, in repelling and subduing the barbaric enemies 
of France, was Lyderic, only son of Saluart, Prince of Dijon, a 
man of " inniimei-able virtues," according to the old chroniclers, 
who had been from his boyhood, schooled in the arts and vicissitudes 
of warfare, and who was counted one of the bravest and most pow- 
e)ful knights of his day. Besides his many good qualities and 
virtues, his marriage with the Merovingian Princess Richilda, sister 
of Dagobert, threw him into close relationship and sympathy with 
the King, who soon marked him for the highest honors. Moreover, 
Lyderic's mother, was the celebrated Madame Enigarde, the daugh- 
ter of Giravd Signoui- de Roussilon, herself a princess of the royal 
blood, and (uie of whose descendants became the wife of Charles 
Martel, Fin])eror of France, which last circumstance, gave rise to 
the beMutiful romance of provincal days, so highly lauded by Ray- 
nourd, Fauviel and other writers on provincal poetry. 



8 

In A. D. 621, for having conquered and killed the tyrant Phinart, 
Dagobert bestowed upon Lyderic, the government and fief of Flan- 
ders, gave him the surnams of le Buc and a coat of arms. 

The entry in the old Flemish chronicle is as follows: "Lyderic 
" the first of the name called Buc, only son of Saluart Prince of 
" Dijon and of Madame Emgarde, daughter of Girard Lord of 
" Kouessilon, having conquered and killed Phinart the tyrant, Lord 
" of Buc was appointed the first Forester of the country of Flan- 
" ders, in the year 621, by the King of France, Dagobert and car- 
" ried the first arms that are blazoned as being ' gnronny or et azur 
" (gold and blue) of ten pieces in the middle of an escutchon gules,' died 
" in the year 692.'" This coat of arms was probably one of the 
earliest granted. 

The origin of the title " Grand Forester," is unknown, but prob- 
ably bore some relation to the wooded state of the country. Lyderic 
Le Buck governed Flanders wisely and humanely, until his death. 
In A. D. 6-40, he completed a castle on the bank of the river, which, 
from its insulated position, was called " I'lsle," since easily changed 
to Lille. In this castle, Lyderic's descendants and successors, as 
Foresters and Counts of Flanders, resided for several centuries. 
Guicciardine says its ruins were extant in his time. About this 
castle, in time, grew the since famous City of Lille, Capital of Flan- 
ders, which once vied in importance with Lancashire, England, in 
the extent and value of its manufacturers. It is still " no mean 
city" and contains some of the most valuable works of art in all 
Europe. The celebrated Hotel de Ville, built by Jean Sans Peuriu 
1430, contains forty-four of Eaphael's paintings. The portraits of 
Lyderic Le Buc and several of his descendants, hang in the Musee 
in Lille. 

B}' Richilda, his wife, Lyderic Le Buc had fifteen children. His 
descendants for six generations after his death governed Flanders 
as follows : 

I. Antoine, Second son of Lyderic Le Buc, First Grand Forester. 

II. Bovchard, Third son of the last named Forester, &c., and 
Lord of Harlebec. 

III. Estorede, son of the last named Forester, &c., Prince of 
Loraine and Lord of Harlebec. Died A. D. 792. 

IV. Lj/deric Second, son of the last named Forester, &c., was 
made Count of Flanders and Harlebec. Died A. D. 836. 

V. lugleran, son of Lyderic II, Forester, &c., Lord, &c., was a 



great builder of castles and towns. Died A. D. 852. Buried at 
Harlebec. 

VI. Odacre, son of the last named Forester, (fee. Built the Castle 
of Audeuaerde and tlie walls of Ghent ; rebuilt many towns. Died 
A. D. 864. Buried at Harlebec. 

Upon the death of Odacre, the title of Forester and Count of 
Flanders passed to Bakhvin Bras de fer and his decendants, w^ho 
held it for several centuries. The successors of Lyderic Le Buc, 
depended less and less upon the Fraukish crown, as time w^ent by, 
and at length, the Foresters of Flanders appear among the holders 
of great state offices. At a latter period, they bore the sword before 
the Kinirs of France at their coronation. 



EMIGRATION TO AND SPREAD OF THE LE BUCK FAMILY IN 

ENGLAND. 

From the beginning of the reign of Edward the Confessor (1041), 
to the reign of Henr}' III. of England, the Knights of Flanders 
ranked as thc^ most daring and nnscrnpulous in all Europe. They 
made w.ir a ])rofession, and sold their prowess to the highest bidder. 
The learned historian Saint Paylaye says that " the business of a true 
" knight was, ' first of all, to fight well, then to conduct a troop well, 
" ride a horse well, and present himself at court wnth grace.' " This 
writer is confirmed b}' a later one, Raynourd, Avho, however, says 
that the Knights were in many essential qualities ver}'^ bad men. 
The early chroniclers record many instances during this period, of 
large bodies of these Knights of Flanders, known as " Roiterers " 
and "Brabaucons," from their marauding propensities, having been 
employed as mercenaries to repel the enemies of the English and 
French monarchs. When tlius engaged, they distinguished them- 
selves more by their rapacity and cruelty than by their bravery 
and virtue. 

Matthew of Westminster says, that in the reigns of Henry I. 
aiivl Stephen, such was the insecurity of property in England that 
owners thereof gave a part of their manors to such persons as 
would watcli the roads and keep off assailants. "Knights of all 
" kinds," says William of Malmesbury, "flocked into England, and 



10 

" especially from Flanders, who distingiiishecl themselves for their 
" rapine," As an illustration of the character of these visiting 
gentry, it is related by. the last named chronicler, that " one of 
" them, in the reign of John, boasted that he had assisted to roast 
" twenty-four monks. He had anointed his captives with honey 
" and exposed them naked under a burning sun for insects to tor- 
" ment." Matthew Paris says that these Knights " hung men by 
" the feet, thumbs and head, smoked them to death, impounded 
" them with beasts, toads, snakes, &c. In John's reign nearly all 
" the castles of England were the dens of robbers and thieves from 
" Flanders and Bretagne." They were generally in the employ of 
the English King, but many of them found employment in the 
Crusades, where they distinguished themsidves for their savage 
brutality. From A. D. 864 to 1066 the le Bucs figured conspicuously 
in the adventurous calling of Knighthood. 

Gilbert de Gant, a Flemish noble, son of Baldwin YL, Earl of 
Flanders, and nephew to William the Conquerer, led a large body 
of Flemish Knights under his uncle William, and fought at Hast- 
ings in 1066, for which service William gave him fifty-four town- 
ships in several counties, principally in York and Lincolnshire. 
This is the same Gant, who two years later so distingaished himself 
at the slaughter of the English by the Danes and Scots under Edgar 
Atheling at York. He died in the reign of Rufus, and his barony 
descended to his son Walter, who will be mentioned again. One of 
these le Bucs fought under de Gant at Hastings. The ''noil of Battel 
Abbey " does not mention the name of le Buc, but " Domesday Book" 
enumerates persons named le Buci, among those Avliom Duke Wil- 
liam rewarded with lands, who were probably identical with the le 
Bucs. Henry I. frequently emploved large numbers of the Knights of 
Flanders to assist him in repelling the incursions of the Scents and 
Welsh. On one occasion, in 1111, he colonized a number of them 
in Pembroke, and later settled several hundred of them in North- 
umbria, as a barrier against the impetuous Scots. A scion of this 
Flemish family of le Buc's, named Rudolphus le Buc, fouglit under 
Henry's standard early in his reign. For gallant services on the 
field of battle, Henry granted Budolphns le Buc extensive domains, 
north of the Humber, at Buckton, Eston and other localities in the 
Wapentake of Bucrosis, in Yorkshire, where his descendants became 
numerous and still flourish. This Rudolphus le Buc and his son, 
Gocelinus le Buc, according to Camden, were joint founders, with 



11 

Walter de Gant, son of Gilbert de Gant, before ineutioned, of the 
famous Priory or Churcli of St. Marj of Bridlington, in Yorksliire. 
For the love lie bore to Rndolplias, Gocelinus and de Gant, their 
parents and friends, Henrj granted them a charter. (SeeDugdale's 
Monasticou, vol. vi., p. 785). Both Rudolplius aud his son, from 
time to time, according to Dngdale, made extensive donations of 
land to this priory. This spacious and magnificent edifice suffered 
demolition in the reign of Henry YIII., and only the fortified gate- 
house and nave are left to mark its site. Gocelinus le Buc, son of 
E/udolphus, left an only child, a daughter. 

In the reign of John over England, says Roger Wendover, one 
Walter le Buc of Brabant, who is said to have been a lineal descen- 
dant of Lyderic le Buc, first Forester of Flanders, Avas a Knight 
aud Cadet of the House of Flanders. In 1215 King John during 
his desperate struggle with the refractory barons, applied to the then 
Earl of Flanders for assistance. The Earl forthwith dispatched 
Fulcas de Bi'eant of Loraine and Walter le Buc of Brabant, two of 
his bravest Knights, with a large body of Brabancon's soldiers and 
cross-bowmen to John's assistance (see Roger Wendover.) They 
were, to use the words of Matthew of Westminster, " a vile lot, 
" thirsting only for human blood," who burned castles, committed 
the most l)rutal murders, and in every way acquitted themselves 
like fiends. De Braent was such a savage brute, that he was sub- 
sequently driven from England and was finalh' poisoned, dying 
miserably at 8t. Cyriac in 1227. Le Buc, although by nature 
ferocius, was a soberer man aud bravely served John on manv occa- 
sions, particularly at the attack on the Isle of Ely (121G.) William 
of Maliuesbury, says Le Bnc was present at Runnymede on the 
occasion of the signing of Magna Charta by John. King John pre- 
vailed u})(>n Walter le Bnc to settle in England; and, as a reAvard 
for services, as well as inducement to get such a brave Knight to 
become a subject of England, John gave Walter extensive tracts of 
land in York and Lincolnshire. Walter married, built his seat or 
residence in Yorkshire, where, as the story runs, he met Gocelinus 
le Buc who has been hereinbefore mentioned. Walter had several 
children, one of whom was son and heir, Ralph by name. This 
Ral])l), through the connivance of his father aud Gocelinus, married 
the only daughter and heir of Gocelinus, and tlius after several 
centuries, the two branches of the family became united. From these 



12 

two branches it is said, are descended all the Bucks in this country. 
B^^ the time Edward I. ascended' the English throne, the le Bucs 
had become numerous in Yorkshire and adjoining counties. A 
direct descendant of Walter le Buc and the daughter of Gocelinus, 
was Sir John le Buc who lived in the reign of E;lward I., as appears 
by his deeds in Herthill made in the first and twent5^-second years 
of that m, march's reign. He married a Strelley. She died young, 
but left issue. This Sir John was so devoted to his wife, that upon 
her death, he is said to have made a religious vow and joined the or- 
der known as the "Knights of Rhodes." More than two centuries ago, 
his arms were to be seen in the ruins of the Hospital of St. Johns, 
near Smithfield, and in the church at All Hallows at the upper end 
of Lombard Street. This last named church was built prior to 1033, 
and repaired in 1516, with the stones brought from old St. John's 
Hospital. The present structure was built by Sir Christopher 
Wren in 1694 In 1273, after his return from the Crusades, King 
Edward I. caused inquiry to be made into the rights and revenues 
of the crown. These inquiries were made upon the oath of a jury 
of each hundred in the realm. These inquisitions, when collected, 
were opportunely called " Eotuli Hundredorum," the hundred rolls. 
Seventy thousand persons are referred to in them. These rolls 
were drawn up, when family names, which had been coming into 
use for nearly two centuries, had become general among all classes 
of persons. Some are in Latin, some in English and some in 
French, with the prefix "le." In these rolls appear not only the 
last named Sir John le Buc," Knight of the Rhodes," whose lands 
are located and rated at Bucktown in Yorkshire, — but other per- 
sons named le Buc having estates as follows : In Yorksliire, Roger 
le Buc, Henry le Buc ; in Balberg, Suiiolk County, John le Buc ; in 
the Hundred of Huntington, Amicia le Buc ; at Chelton, Margaret 
le Buc; at Lyttonston and Brompttni, Richard le Buc; at Bromjj- 
ton, Robert le Buc, William le Buc, Nicholas le Buc ; in Wiltshire, 
Hugo le Buc, Ellen le Buc and Peter le Buc; in Bucks, Castro le 
Buc; at Halton, Walter le Buc, and at Hingham in Norfolk County, 
Edric le Buc. All these were the descendants of Randolphus and 
Walter le Bnc, Knights of Flanders. 

The several charters granted to Bridlington priory, from the 
reign of Henry I. to Edward I., and the chroniclers and historians 
of a later period, as contained in Dugdale, show that the family 
seats remained at Buckton and Eston, in Yorkshire, and that their 



13 

descendants were donors and patrons of the convent and priory at 
Bridlington, until its destruction b}- Heur\- YIII. In 1251, during 
the reign of Heury III., William le Buc, of Bucktou, is mentioned 
as One of the heads and donors of Bridlington Priory. The follow- 
ing year, his son and heir, Robert le Buc, is mentioned as holding 
lands at Buckton, and as connected with the convent. This Robert 
is again mentioned in 1286, in connection Avith the Parish of St. 
Cuthbert. Arnaldus, son of Walter le Buc, was a patron of the 
Bridlington Priory from 1291 to 1303. Still later, Thomas, son of 
Tljomas le Buc, Henrj' le Buc and William le Buc, are mentioned 
as being at Buckton, which according to Thompson's " History of 
Bridlington," Avas formerly in the stoke or church jurisdiction of 
Bridlington. In 1320, William le Buc is mentioned iu connection 
with the Dominican Church at Scarboro, in Yorkshire. In 1323 a 
Rudolphus le Buc, of Yorkshire, was examined at Portsmouth 
concerning an escape, as appears by an old court record. A 
grandson of the famcms " Knight of the Rhodes " was Sir John 
Bucke, who, in 1387, as Admiral of the Flemish fleet for the Duke 
of Burgundy, participated in the great naval battle between the 
combined Spanish and French fleets on one side, and the English, 
under the Earl of Arundel, on the other, off Sluys, on the Flemish 
coast. Froisart, in his narrative of this battle, gives Sir John 
credit for great bravery and prudence, notwithstanding the Flem- 
isii fleet Avas defeated and captured. Sir John was carried prisoner 
to London, and confined in the Tt)wer for three years and until his 
death. The English King, Edward III., remained deaf to all pro- 
positions to ransom the Admiral, tlnjugh the Duke of Burgund}' 
offered to give in exchange for him, a bastard brother of the King 
of Poi'tugal. The English considered Sir J.)lm too dangerous a 
foe to be at liberty. 

Lawrence Buckt^, a son of this Sir John, followed EdAvard Plan- 
taganet, Duke of York, and was slain Avliile bravely fighting at the 
battle of Agincourt. Sir John Bucke, son and heir of Lawrence, 
married a daughter and heir of the house of StaA'ely, out of which 
were descended the Barons Parr, of Kendall, and Ross, Queen 
Katherine Parr (last wife of Henry YIII.), Lord Parr, Earl of 
Northampton, and the Herberts, Earls of Pembroke and Mont- 
gomery. These Bucks resided principally in Herthill and other 
townships in Yorkshiie, and from their intermarriages with the 
families of Stirly of Woodhall, Thorpe, Filney (then of Lincoln- 
shire), and Saville, many noble families descended. 



14 

Sir John Bucke, last mentioned, married the daughter of Henry 
Saville, and settled in Lincolnsliire in the reign of Edward IV. He 
had a son Robert and several other children. He was a man of 
considerable fame in his day. He became a great favorite of Rich- 
ard III., who ennobled him. He stood by the unfortunate King to 
the last, fighting bravely for him at Bos worth. Upon the accession 
of Henry YIII. Sir John was for a time in favor, and was designated 
as one of the thirty nobles who attended Heur3^'s wedding ; but 
soon after, Henry, under acts of Attainder took off the heads of all 
the nobles who had supported Richard, and Sir John's fell with 
the rest. His children, being orphans, by the Attainder of their 
father, were taken in charge by the Duke of Norfolk, who took 
them into more southerly parts of the Kingdom. He gave two of 
the daughters in marriage, — one with the heir of Bucke, and the 
other with the heir of Fitz Lewis, a very ancient family — from 
which unions manv honorable and distiuf^uished f;imilies descended. 
There were three sons. Of these, Robert, the eldest, was a soldier; 
another was a courtier, and the third a priest. The Duke united 
Robert in marriage, atMelford Hall, in Suffolk, with the families of 
Hengham and Cotton. His descendants intermarried with the 
Blounts of Elwaston, the Talbots of Grofton, from whom descended 
the Barons of Montjoy and the Earls of Shrewsbury. The Duke 
married one of the daughters to Frederick Tilney, of Shirley Hall, 
in Suffolk, his nearest kinsman by the Duchess, on his mother's 
side. A great-grand-sou of the Sir John Buck attainted by Henry 
VII., was George Buck, of Lincohishire, who was knighted July 
26th, 1603, by King James I. and appointed Master of the Revels, 
Gentleman of the Privy Chamber, &g. Camden saj^s he was " a 
" very polite scholar who (that I may acknowledge ray obligations 
" to my friends) made many curious historical observations and 
" candidly imparted them to me." Sir George attained celebrity as 
an author and antiquarian. His works, though few, are admitted 
to be of the highest order. Among these is the life of Richard III. 
in five volumes, in which he undertakes to refute many erroneous 
statements concerning Richard's life and times. This work, al- 
though not published till twenty years after the author's death, 
drew the unjust and undeserved censure of a multitnte of ignorant 
and bigoted critics. 

From Sir George's statements of the origin and descent of his 
line of the Buck family, the author of this work has seen fit to draw 



15 

to some extent, after having first verified the most of the matter so 
drawn, bj reference to numerous authorities. Sir George Buc died 
in 1623, several years after the first of his name had effected a lodg- 
ment on the shores of North America. 

From various sources, the writer has gleaned a great mass of in- 
formation relative to the Bucks in England, the use of which, it is 
to be regretted, space will not permit. 

A few items are however selected, which may be of interest to the 
reader, as showing the strong tendency of the family to become 
clergymen and politicians. John Buck settled at Benston, County 
Norfolk, about 1453, and became rector of the church there four 
Vf^ars later. This church was founded prior to 1299. J<)hn died in 
1404. In 1547 one of his descendants was master of the free schooi 
in the City of Norwich. John Buck in Holy Orders, made a pil- 
grimage to Rome in 1583, an account of which he wrote out. Wil- 
liam Buck was assistant Vicar of Hawgley in 1537. 

A doctor, James Buck, was vicar of Stradbrook, in County Suffolk 
in 1649, and for many years after. He was a learned and eloquent 
man. He and his two wives and seven children are buried in the 
north aisle of St. Peter's Church, Cornhill, Loudon. His son John, 
likewise an eloquent man, was vicar of Stradbrook. Pep3's speaks 
highly of him, having heard him preach a thanksgiving sermon in 
St. Paul's Church, London. 

A John Buck as a minister, ofiiciated in some capacity in Canter- 
bury Cathedral in 1650. He and his wife are buried in the nave of 
that church. Zachariah Buck, a native of Norwich, and descendant 
of the Rector John Buck, above named, became organist of the 
Norwich Cathedral in 1819. He composed a complete church 
service, several anthems and organized the famous choir mentioned 
by musical writers. This branch produced a dozen ministers. A 
Master Buck of Aldermansbury Avas required by Henry VIII. in 
1522, to furnish a " hall and parlor, twochambsrs and four beds" 
for guests on the occasion of the visit of the Emperor Charles V. to 
Enghmd. Sir Peter Buc-k of Rochester in Kent, was knighted by 
James I. in 1603. According to Pepys, he was Secretary to Alger- 
non Percy, Earl of Northumberland and Lord High Admiral. In 
1608 he was " clerk of the acts of tlie navy." He had a brother 
Edward Yonge Buck. Elizabeth Buck, eldest daughter of Thomas 
Buck of Westwick, County Cambiidge, was married to Christopher 
Hatton in Westminster Abbey in 1674. Hatton was a nephew of 



16 

Sir Christopher Hattou. It was an ancestor of this Elizabeth, who 
was beadle of Cambridge University early in the 17th century and 
■whose daughter w^as granted the right of arms in 1671. 



THE BUCK FAMILY AHMS. 

Before following the Bucks to America, it is proper to insert de- 
scriptions of the several coats of arms borne by different branches 
of the Buck family in England. It is not known when many of 
these were assumed or bestowed; but none of them can be older 
than the reign of Henry I., as family coats of arms Avere not adopt- 
ed in England, earlier than the tw^elfth century. The majorit}' of 
them date no further back than the sixteenth and seventeenth cen- 
turies, during which period, in fact, most of the Englisli armorial 
bearings extant, were assumed. Whitmore, in his " Elements of 
Heraldry,'' truly says, that " identity of name does not argue iden- 
tity of origin." This remark might apply with force to such names 
as Smith, Brown, Jones, and a great host of others, w^hich were as- 
sumed by the common people long after the Conquest. Bat differ- 
ence of origin, as in those cases, invariably produces confusion and 
dissimilarit}' of armorial bearings. One who will carefully com- 
pare the several coats of arms given below, noting the existence of 
the male deer, or some portion of that animal, on or above the 
shield in nearly all of them, must conclude not only that the name 
is derived from the male fallow deer, but that the Bucks of Eng- 
land and America are all descended from one common ancestor. ' 
What greatly lessens, in fact, almost destroys the value of these 
coats of arms, as a means of determining the connection between 
English and American branches, is tlie fact that by the rules of 
Englisli heraldry, the first assumer, or grantee of a coat of arms, 
took that as his distinguishing mark. It became hereditary in his 
own famil}^ and none of his namesakes, none of his relatives, out- 
side of his direct descendants, had any claim to share it with him. 
The result of this rule was, that the ot3Scials who made periodical 
"Visitations," so called, through the realm, and registered the pedi- 
grees of families, generally followed the line of the eldest son or 
heir, tracing his brothers and sisters no further than to name them 
and their wives, if married. For this reason, the numerous 
" Heraldric Visitations " of the middle ages, many of which have 



17 

been pnblisbed, render but slight assistance to the genealogist. 
Another difficulty lies in the fact that but very few indeed, of the 
early American colonists, used coats of arms. The descriptions and 
engravings which here follow, it is hoped, may attract the atten- 
tion and engage the thought of some curious reader to further in- 
vestigation of a subject wliicli will yield pleasure, if not profit :

EMIGRATION TO VIRGITSTIA. 

The Reformation set (m foot by an Augustine monk, begat Puritan- 
ism and Puritanism begat the Republic of the United States. 

Protestanism enfranchised the minds of men, and Puritanism gave 
birth to civil and religious liberty in the wilderness of a continent, 
which a Genoese adventurer had discovered. The Puritans in 
England, desiring only reform, did not at first advocate separation 
from the established church, and hence, did not excite the alarm of 
reigning despots. But late in the reign of Elizabeth, when they as- 
serted the liberty of each individual mind to discover the truth m 



19 

the word of God, conderamed the ceremonies and government of an 
effete and corrupt clinrch, and refused to hold communion with it, 
they began to alarm the powers of both church and state. When 
at last, Elizabeth saw the drift of matters, slie and her ministers 
abandoned conciliation, and by every arbitrary means in their 
power, endeavored to check the tide of reform. But each effort 
only served to hasten the inevitable result. The Puritans were 
an established power, beyond the control of Royalty. Hounded 
night and day by agents of an intolerant Hierarchy ; scoffed and 
scorned by the profane multitude ; driven into exile ; imprisoned in 
vile dungeons and torturedin the most crael manner, these followers 
of the new star of liberty, continued to denounce the beggarly cer- 
emonies of the Romish Church, as " monuments of idolatry," re- 
fused to conform to them, and, renouncing all obedience to human 
authority, asserted for themselves unlimited authority, in things 
spiritual. The haughty Tudor Queen discovered, when it was too 
late, that the spirit which actuated this band of noble men and 
women, eidightened by the word of God, and inspired by the fine 
words and examples of such men as "Wickliff, Huss, Calvin and 
Robinson, could not be crushed and soured by disappointments and 
the decline of her popularity, " Good Queen Bess " died, leaving 
the work of extinguishing these enemies of the crowai and the mitre, 
to the more despotic «lames. That monarch, true to his nature,. be- 
gan his reign in 1604 with the threat "I will make them conform 
or I will harry them out of the land or hang them," and was not 
long in suiting the action to the word. In the following year he 
silenced, imprisoned or exiled three hundred Puritan ministers. 
The poor people of tlie north of England, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, 
and Nottinghainpshire were the greatest sufferers, since it was 
among them that Puritanism first took root and flourished under 
the leadership of R(jbinson. Large numbers of these fled to Hol- 
land after 1608, among whom were those who eventually came to 
America in the Ma^'flower. By an act of Parliament in 1631 pro- 
viding that no person should leave the realm, until he or she had 
taken the oath of conformity. King James hoped to exterminate 
Puritanism ; but all to no purpose. High Heaven had decreed that 
during his and the succeeding reign, the tree of liberty should be 
planted and successfully fostered in the soil of America. Five 
years after King James had made the threat, which he so cruelly 
executed. Rev. Richard Buck, was the first person, bearing the 



20 

name to arrive in America. He was one of that brave band of five 
hundred men and woman, who came over with Newport, Gates 
and Somers in 1609, to succor the suffering Virginia Colony at 
Jamestown. Newport's fleet of nine vessels s^dled from England in 
Mav. When near the coast of Virginia it was struck by a terrific 
hurricane and " The Sea Venture," on board of which was Rev. 
Richard Buck, was stranded on the reefs of one of the Bermuda 
Islands. Those on board escaped to land, where they spent nine 
months in constructing from the old wrecks, and the cedars of the 
Island, two vessels, on board of wliich they eventually reached 
Jamestown. On the 10th of June, 1610, the restoration of the 
famishing colony was begun by Lord' De La Ware, with solemn re- 
ligious services, conducted by Rev. Richard Buck, who preached in 
a little chapel built of logs, covered with rafters, sedge and earth, 
just then completed. This ivas the first sermon preached under a roof 
within the limits of the United States. Richard Buck appears to have 
been a resident of Loudon, if not a native, and to have studied at 
Oxford University. Although regularly ordained as a minister of 
the established church, his sympathies with the doctrines of Puri- 
tanism, constrained him to choose exile rather than compliance with 
the odious conformit}^ acts of Parliament, w^hicli the bigoted James 
I. was then enforcing. Richard was a brave, zealous, conscientious 
man who gave his life to the spiritual welfare of his brother and 
sister colonists. His Avife whom he had mai'ried before departing 
from England, shared with him the terrible hardships of that 
memorable voyage. His narrative of their tempestuous passage, 
shipwreck and sufferings, includes the circumstance of the birth of 
their eldest child on shipboard. He labored at Jamestown until, 
worn out by hardships and exposure, he died in 1624. His wife 
and four children, Maria, Gershom, Beunoni and Peleg survived 
him. The early colonial writers refer to the sad fact that this Ben- 
noni iDas the first natural horn fool of Enr/lish speaking colonists in 
America. Those of his descendants who did not remain in Virginia, 
emigrated westward. The writer has been unable to ascertain 
Richard's relationship to the ]>ucks of New England.

EMIGRATION" TO MASSACHUSETTS. 

In point of time, the next of the family to arrive in America were 
William Buck, then aged 60, and his son Eoger, aged 18. They, 
with other emigrants, left England in April, 1635, on the ship "In- 
crease," Captain Robert Le Master, and disembarked at Boston a 
month later. It appears by the certificate, signed by the justices 
and ministers of the place where they had resided, and which they 
exhibited to the Master of the vessel before embarking, that they 
had " taken and subscribed to the oaths of allegiance and supremacy 
" tf) the government and discipline of the Church of England." 
This they had done, no doubt under compulsion, and witli the al- 
ternative of being thrown into prison. The ship's register shows 
that William was a "plow-rite" — a person who makes and mends 
plows, — ^but there is no entry in the record of the particular place 
of his nativity. He and his sou Roger wen"t directly to Cambridge, 
then in process of settlement, Avhere in 1652 the town granted Wil- 
liam twenty acres out of tli e "Cambridge Survey" (Lot 91). Tliis 
lot was in the west field northeast from Garden Street, where was 
formerly one of tlie highways leading to the great swamp, now 
called Raymond Street. It butted on the stream which divides 
Woburn from Cambridge, and on the Winthrop farm. Here Wil- 
liam bnilt his family residence. He died intestate January 24, 
1658, and was buried in the (31d Cemetery at Cambridge. His wife 
(i)ame unknown), had died before his departure from England. His 
son Roger, who inherited all his property, was appointed his ad- 
ministrator in April fullowing (1658). 

The town granted to Roger lot No. 5 (10 acres) of the Cambridge 
Survey. This also butted on the Winthrop farm, and on the stream 
separating Cambridge from Woburn. Roger seems to have been 
illiterate, for in 1668 he made " his mark" to a petition to the Gen- 
eral Court. He followed the occupation of his father in connection 
with farming. For some time he served as town executioner, as 
appears by entries in the town records, one of Avliich states that he 
is ordered to inflict twenty lashes on the back of a culprit in 1668. 
In the spring of 1665, on the death of his wife Susanna, he removed 
to Woburn. In 1688 he sold part of the homestead of his father 
to his son-in-ltiw, Thomas Baverick, on condition that if the latter 
should sell the same, Roger's son Ephraim should have the prefer- 



22 

euce as purchaser. Roger died at Woburn, November 10, 1693, and 

was buried at Woburn. His wife Susanna was buried at Caui- 

biidge. The issue of Roger and Susanna Buck were : — 
I. Samuel, b. Feby. 6, 1642^3. V. Ruth, b. Nov., 1613. 

II. John, b. Sept. 13, 1644, d 1644. VI. Elizabeth, b. July 5, 1657. 

III. Ephraim, b. July 26, 1646. VII. Ly<iia, b. 1655. 

IV. Mary, b. June 25, 1648, d. Aug. 3, 1669. 

Of the daughters, Mary died unmarried; Ruth married Thomas 
Baverick ; Elizabeth married, August 20, 1678, Joshua Wood, and 
Lydia married November 3, 1672. Of the sons, John died unmar- 
ried; Samuel married, March 16, 1669, Rachel Levin, and settled in 
Meuotonomy, where he died September 21, 1690, and his wife Rachel 
died in 1691. On the death of Samuel, his estate was divided 
between his children, who were: (1) Nathaniel, b. July 16, 1672, d. 
July 19, 1672 ; (2) Hannah, b. January 3, 1671, d. April 3, 1675 ; 
(3) Rachel, b. July, 1676 (m. December 18, 1694, Jobez Brooks), d. 
February 23, 1698; (4) Anna, b. August 18, 1680; (5) Sarah, b. July 
5, 1694, and (6) Samuel, b. December 3, 1686. Ephraim, the re- 
maining son of Roger, married Januarj' 1,1671, Sarah Brooks. He 
resided at Woburn, and was a farmer by occupation. In 1692 he 
was elected constable of Charlestown, where the town records show 

he solemnized marriages. He died in 1720. His issue were : — 
I. Sarah, b. Jany. 11, 1674. V. Samuel, b. Nov. 1, 1682. 

II. John, b. Jauy. 1, 1675. VI. Eunice, b. July 16, 1685. 

III. Ephraim, b. July 13, 1676. VII Ebenezer, b. May 20, 1689! 

IV. Johii,b. Feby. 1. 1680. VIII. Mary, b. Oct. 28, 1691. 

Of the above last named eight children, Sarah married a Gower, 
the two Johns died in infancy; Samuel married Abigail Wyman and 
left a son who never married ; Eunice never married, and Mary 
married Nathaniel Pike ; Ephraim married and remained at Wo- 
burn ; Ebenezer married and had a son Jonathan C, February 20, 
1719, who removed with his father to Haverhill, where he married 
October 9, 1775, Lydia Moore. In 1762 he removed to a point on 
Penobscot Rivei", Maine, where he settled naming the place Bucks- 
port. It was incorporated by that name shortly after his death, 
which was in 1795. He left nine living children, from whom have 
sprung many descendants. He was commander of Fort Pownal in 
1775 and served throughout the war for independence. It has been 
said tiiat William and Roger Buck were near blood relatives of the 
Bucks who settled in Connecticut, but there seems to be no evidence 
for the assertion — at any rate, no such evidence has been discovered. 



23 

In October, 1635, one Isaac Buck and several otlier persons were 
transported to Boston in the ship " Amitia" (Capt. Geo. Downs) for 
refusing to take the oath of conformity. Isaac was then aged 
thirty-four. His wife, Frances Marsh, whom he married before 
leaving Ell 'jfland, folloAved her husband in December of the same 
year, being then twenty years ohl. Isaac went to Scituate, where he 
bought land and where he was enumerated as " subject to military 
duty" in 1613. In 1647 he was elected town clerk of Scituate. By 
occupation he was a blacksmith. He seems to have become in- 
fluential in town and church matters. In 1658 he was admitted to 
the privilege of a "Freeman," and in the fall of the following year 
was elected constable,' an office of far more dignity than in these 
days. After this he was electe<l deputy for Scituate, which office he 
hekl for several years. In 1668 he was made a councilman, and in 
1676 received the appointment of lieutenant in the colonial militia. 
While in this capacity, he repulsed an Indian attack on the town. 
He seems to have faithfully and honorably filled all these offices. 
In 1650 he lodged a complaint with Governor Bradford and the 
council against one John Hewes for larceny and procured the con- 
viction of Hewes. In 1655 the Governor and Council fined him 20s. 
for refusing to shoe certain horses which were to be employed in 
carrying one of the Massachusetts Commissioners to New Haven on 
public business. His neighV)ors sustained him in the act and pro- 
cured a remission of the fine. In 1656 Governor Bradford com- 
plained of him for misbehavior as clerk of the Scituate " train 
band," which position he held several terms. This action, too, his 
fellow-townsmen seem to have ujiheld against the Governor and 
Council. In 1659 he was again in " hot water " about the town tax- 
rates, but managed to get (Hit. He died in 1696, aged 93. His 
widow survived him. His children were at least eight in number, 

viz.: 

I. Thomas. 
II. Joseph. 
III. Benjamin. 
lY. Jouiithau. 

Elizabeth married Robert Whitcomb ; Mehitable married Stephen 

Crittenten ; Ruth married Joseph Garret ; and Deborah married

In 1638 several families at Hengham and adjoining towns in Nor- 
folk County, England, came over to Boston in the ship " Dilligent," 
and settled the town of Higham in Massachusetts. One Gushing 
made " A record of such persons as came out of the town of Heng- 
" and towns adjacent in Great Britain and settled in New England," 
from which record it appears that "James Buck and his servant 
" John Morfield, came from Old Hengham, County Norfolk, Great 
" Britain, to America in 1638, and settled at New Hingham, in New 
" England." The following year (May 22, 1639) this James Buck 
was made a freeman of Boston by the General Court. The only 
mention made of him afterwards is of his devising property to a 
John Buck in Hingham, County Norfolk, near " Norald Common, 
formerly called Eolsom." This was undoubtedly the home of John's 
family bofore his emigration. 



One John Buck, it is said, settled at Stratford, Connecticut, as 
early as 1625. This is manifestly an error, since no settlement was 
commenced at Stratford, until several years later. It is said that 
this John was a brother of James, last mentioned, and that he came 
over on the same ship with James. If so, Cushing omitted to 
mention John in his "record." More likely tins John^was a brother 
of Isaac above mentioned, for in 1655 John was living at Scituate, or 
at Marshfield, near there, as appears by an entr\' in an old record at 
Scituate, which states that he was one of a coroner's jury who sat to 
determine the cause of death of one Draiton, who had been frozen 
to death. John Buck's issue were : 

I. Elizabeth, b. 1G53, VI. Susanna, b, 1664. 

II. Mary, b. 1655. VII. Benjamin, b. 1665. 

III. Joseph, b. 1657. VIII. Deborah, b. 1670. 

ry. John, b. 1659. IX. Kobeit, b. 167'2. 

V. Hannah, b. 1661. X. Rachel, b. 1674. 

John Buck's wife Elizabeth Holbrook, of Weymouth, dying in 
1690, he married (2) Sarih Eraunce, by whom he had no issue. His 
will bears date in 1699, about which time he died. That the 
Cambridge Scituate and Hingham Backs were closely related to the 
Connecticut Bucks, there is little doubt, but the particular degree of 
relationship they bore to each other the writer has been unable to 
determine. It is to be hoped that some reader of this work may 
find pleasure in such further investigation of the subject, as may 
bring to light the facts.

First Generation. 

(1) EMANUEL (OR ENOCH) BUCK. 

AND 

(2) HENKY BUCK. 

It was the summer of 1647. Twenty-seven years had ehipsed 
since the Lmding of the pilgrims from the Mayflower, and fourteen 
years had rolled around since the heroic little band of sixty men, 
women and children of Newtown and Watertown, Mass., had tra- 
versed the trackless and howling wilderness, to begin a settlement 
in the Connecticut valley. Quite a cluster of rude dwellings had 
sj)rung up on the west bank of the river, four miles south of Hart- 
ford. The peo])le inhabiting these dwellings had begun with dignity 
to call themselves "The Town." They had already christened their 
little hamlet " Wethersheld," in honor of the little town of that 
name in Suffolkshire, England, and had begun to keep a record of 
matters of public interest to their little community, such as births, 
deaths, marriages, town meetings, grants of lands to settlers, <fec., 
<fec. In fact, notwithstanding exposure to scorching heats, biting 
frosts, famine, disease and the barbarous cruelty of the savages, 
their settlement had begun to prosper,— a fact which the set- 
tlers were not slow to communicate to their friends and re- 
lations across the Atlantic. The novelty of being landlords 
instead of tenants, of being free from the impudent domination of 
crown satraps, of making their own laws and worshiping God in a 
manner most agreeable to their consciences, soon induced hundreds 
to abandon Great Britain and hasten to join their kinsmen in the 
New World. A stream of emijjjrants from the northern counties of 
England pouretl into Boston, or found lodgement along the coast of 
New England. Many of these began their weary tramps westward 
towards the Connecticut. Among these were two brothers, Emanuel 
and Henry Buck, then aged respectively twenty-three and twenty- 
one years. The writer has spent much time in efforts to ascertain 
their relationship to the English branches of the family, the exact 
locality in England where they were born and reared, the immediate 
cause which impelled them to leave England, the name of the vessel 



26 

in which they made the voyage, and their experiences and hardships 
after arriving, knowing that all these things would excite the deepest 
interest of their numerous descendants. Unfortunately, research 
has thus far been in vain, records and traditions being alike want- 
ing, and the writer most reluctantly, indeed, leaves the task for 
others to undertake. What evidence there is, forces the conclusion 
that Emanuel and Henry Buck were natives of Norfolk county, 
England. Still, that evidence is not sufficiently strong to support a 
positive assertion. The English Counties of Lincoln, Suffolk. Nor- 
folk and York furnished the great bulk of the Massachusetts and 
Connecticut settlers, and the similarity of the Christian names of 
Emanuel (or Enoch) and Henry, and their descendants to those 
Bucks who for centuries before resided, and ever since have resided 
in Norfolk county, is striking. 

It lias been said that these brothers first went to New London 
This may be true, but they did not settle there, for according to 
Trumbull and others, New London w^as not settled, nor was any 
land granted to settlers there until the year after Emanuel and 
Henry are mentioned by records as being at Wethersfield. More- 
over, neither of their names appears in the list of original settlers 
at New Loudon, all of whom becoming discouraged left that planta- 
tion. Both Emanuel and Henry had mastered trades in England, 
Emanuel that of a miller and Henry that of a blacksmith, and each 
one of them plied his trade in conjunction with fanning during the 
remainder of his days. Both had been reared to habits of in- 
dustry, frugality and sobriety, from which habits they never de- 
parted. 

Emanuel Buck appears to have possessed a mercurial tempera- 
ment, at times, even impetuous. In December, 1647, before he had 
been six months at Wethersfield, he was summoned before the 
"Particular Court" at Hartford, (in the jurisdiction of which 
Wethersfield was), where he entered into a recognizance in the 
penal sum of £10, to appear before tliat Court at its next regular 
term. On March 1st following, the Court met and he was released 
from his bond. What the nature of his offence was does not 
appear, the bond not being in existence. In all probability 
however, it was an inconsiderate act, the result of an effervescence 
of temper, for at the same (March) term of the Court he was fined 
10s. "for irregular speeches in court against one Robert Rose, when 
he spoke upon his oath." This Robert Rose was a fellow-townsman 



27 

of Emaunel's, wlio had just been fined <£1 for a petty offence of some 
kind, and it was at statements sworn to by Kose on his trial that 
Emanuel became offended and transgressed the rules of the Hart- 
ford Court etiquette. During this same year, Emanuel was em- 
ployed by the "townsmen" to " burne the woods belonging to the 
other ende of the town," an undertaking for the public benefit. In 

1648 Emanuel, having married his first wife, Sarah , was 

granted a home lot by the town of Wethersfield (by resolution), de- 
scribed as "a piec^ of land containing two acres, more or less, which 
" presents a triangle, the ends abutting west on the home lot which 
" the town gave to Leonard Dix, coming to a point east of about the 
" tliird post of Goodman Curtis' farm, the sides abutting against 
" Thomas Curtis south and north on the road leading to Hartford." 
On this " home lot" Emanuel erected the house in which he dwelt 
for several years; but the town did not give him a deed for it 
until November 27, 1G54. He labored hard and propspered. 
On May 21, 1G57, the General Court of Election con- 
vened at Hartford and admitted him to the privileges of a "Erae- 

man." His wife, Sarah , died shortly after, leaving him the 

care of three small children ; but in the spring of 1G58 he married 

his second wife, Mary , who survived him, dying January 12 

1712. On March 12, 1G59, he bought of Edward Scott (or Slot) two 
and a half acres, abutting north on Eort street, south on the road 
to Hartford, east on John Goodrich, Thomas Wright, the widow 
Gibbtms and John Stoddard, and west on Robert Francis and 
Thomas Standish. A 3^t^ar later, he and Michael Griswold, purchased 
of John and Esther Burr thirteen acres of swamp and meadow land 
which the Burrs got by the will of James Boosey. In 1G16 the 
town granted him a triaugnlar piece of land, bounded north by the 
High Hills ; and the same year he bougllt twelve acres on Rocky 
Hill and a tract in the "Dry Swamp." In 1667 he bought the 
Henry Palmer homestead. In 1669 he bought of John Woddoms a 
house and three acres on the west side of the town, adjoining his 
own "home lot." The same year, he drew a tract of land in an 
allotment of town lands. In 1()80 the town granted him thirty acres 
next his own lands, at the saw-mill in Westfarms (Newington), in 
exchange for (^ne-half acre adjoining liis own lot, to be used for a 
road. And in 1683-4 he and John Boreman and Joseph Reilly were 
granted thirty acres for saw-mill purposes at Newington. Thus it 
appears frcm the Wethersfield town records, and other documents. 



28 

that from 1649 to 1684 he had become the owner of considerably 
land at Wethersfield, including a grist mill and one or more saw- 
mills. There is no evidence that he took an active part in religious 
affairs ; but it must be presumed that he did, for in those days of 
Puritan strictness no man could hold any civil office, or serve as a 
juror, unless he was closely identified with the church. 

In the June term (1661) of the Hartford Qu;irters Court, he 
served as a juror, and again at the September (1662) term, and at 
the spring and fall (1675) terms. At the ensuing term he repre- 
sented Wethersfield on the grand jury. In 1668 he was elected 
constable of Wethersfield, and made and signed a list now on file in 
the office of the Secretary of State at Hartford. lu 1669, he was 
elected Selectman for Wethersfield, to which office he was several 
times thereafter elected. All these offices he seems to have filled 
with entire satisfaction. In 1673 one John Chester sued him in 
trespass for cutting timber on Chester's land without leave. The 
trial was set down for the September term of the Assistants' Court 
at Hartford, before which time, however, the suit was compromised. 
He died intestate about 1700, and such of his lands as he had not 
sold, or deeded to his sons^ were divided between his sons. The 
writer has made an exliaustive search, but without avail, to ascer- 
tain the maiden names of his wives Sarah and Mary. 

Neither marriage is recorded in any of the public records, or can 
any of his descendants furnish the coveted information. It has been 
asserted that the Enoch and Emanuel Buck mentioned contempo- 
raneously, in the Wetliersfield and Hartford records, Avere two indi- 
viduals. This is an error. The}- were the same person. Savage 
says ; " the name of the same man is mentioned by both prefixes in 
different places in the Wethersfield records." Hinman, evidentW 
wishing to draw the same conclusion. Buys : " There is no other 
Enoch Buck, than the one fined in Court in 1648, whose death or 
marriage is not found at Wethersfield." Fortunately there is con- 
clusive proof that "Emanuel "and "Enoch" was applied to the 
same person, in the records of two ejectment suits which were insti- 
tuted in 1684 by Lieut. Samuel Steele and Nathaniel Studley against 
Enoch Buck and Michael Griswold, respectively, to obtain posses- 
sion of a "piece of land lying in a place commonly called "Long 
Eowe " or Wethersfield, Dry Swamp, together with damages for the 
detention thereof. The lands in dispute formerly belonged to one 



29 

James Boosey, who, dying, devised them bj' will to Joseph Boosey 
his eldest son, " on attaining the age of twenty-one years." Joseph 
Boosey married and removed to Westchester County, N. Y., Avhere 
he died before attaining twenty-one years. His widow thereafter 
married one John Burr, who in 1660, conveyed part of these lauds 
to Enoch Buck and the other to Michael Griswold, whereupon, the 
wives of Steele and Studley, claiming that the title had never passed 
to Joseph Boosey, for the reason that Joseph had never attained the 
age of twenty-one, brought suit of ejectment iu the County Court to 
recover the lands from Buck and Griswold. The County Court 
decided for the plaintiffs with costs. Ou appeal the Court of Assis- 
tants, an intermediate appellate Court, reversed the decision below, 
and found for the defendants with costs of ajDpeal. 

The case then went to the General Court of Hartford, on appeal. 
That Court sustained the decision for Buck and Griswold with 
costs. In May, 1686, on Motion, the General Court ordered that if 
DO objection should be offered in the meantime, the Secretary 
should issue execution to "Emanuel Buck and Michael Griswold in 
the ensuing November, according to tlie judgments they respectively 
obtained against Steele and Studley." The execution did issue as 
ordered. These cases are reported at length in Vol. III. of the 
Connecticut Colonial Records pp. 160, 199. The fact that the de- 
fendant Buck, during the pendency of his suit, is mentioned by 
both ])refixes, "Enoch and Emanuel," is conclusive, that the same 
person was meant by both. It was iu 1681, during the pendency of 
these suits, that Emanuel (or Enoch) Buck, deposed that li ewas 
then 61 years of age which fixed 1623, as the year of his birth. 

Henry Buck (2) brother of Emanuel (or Enoch), appears to have 
been a man of quiet deportment, solid moral character and sober 
and industrious in his habits. He is first mentioned in 1658, when 
the town of Wethersfield granteil him lands, on which to erect a 
blacksmith shop, which was probably the first shop of the kind 
erected in Wethersfield. In 1661, he bought a lot on the west side 
of High street. In 1675, he bought the Theophilus Sherman home- 
stead, on the east side of High street, at the north end. He con- 
ducted the labor of his farm, while by the aid of apprentices labor, 
he prosecuted his trade, and so prospered, that he became as the 
saying goes, " well off." In 1673, he was plaintiff in a case against 
Joseph Green's estate, in an action of debt on book account and re- 
covered a judgment for £8, 19s. 7d, with costs. In 1667-8, he was 



30 

elected constable of Wetliersfield, and in 1667, he likewise filled 
the responsible office of Deputy for "Wetliersfield. In 1669, he was 
made a "Freeman " of the village. He married Oct. 31, 1660, Eliza- 
beth Churchill, a lad}' of honorable lineage, born in 1629. She sur- 
vived her husband only a short time. He died July 7, 1712, aged 
86, which shows him to have been born in 1626. 



According to Hinmau ("Puritan Settlers," p. 367), a John Buck, 
settled at Wetliersfield and m. Deborah Hewes, of Guilford, Conn., 
(probably) Oct. 10, 1665. He had a son Thomas (b. about 1666), 
who on May 12, 1709, m. Sarah Jndd, of Farmiugton or Hartford, 
and had issue, I, Sarah, b. Jan. 19, 1710; II, Thomas, b. Sept. 6, 
1712 ; III, Mary, b. Nov. 5, 1715 ; IV, Ebenezer, b. Nov 11, 1717 ; 
and John, b. March 24, 1722, who died the same year (Hinnian's 
Puritan Settlers, p. 367). The younger Thomas is said to have had 
lands at Middletown, as early as May, 1671, (14 N. E. Gen'l and 
Hist Regr. 64). He died soon after, and his widow, Hannah, m. (2) 
1667, one Joseph Baker, (b. Jniie 16, 1655), by whom she had chil- 
dren, I, Joseph, b. April 13, 1678, and II, Lydia, b. July 5, 1681. 
They are put down as being at Windsor (5 N. E. Gen'l and Hist 
Regr. 65). This Thomas was either a brother or cousin of Emanuel 
and Henry.

(24) Samuel, b. Feb. 2, 1664. (28) Sarah, b. July 25, 1678. 

(25) Martha, b. Oct, 15, 1667. (29) Euth, b. Dec. 4, 1681. 

(26) Elizabeth, b. June 6, in70. (30) Mehitable, b. Jan. 4, 1684. 

Of these eight children Henry Buck (23) removed to Fairfield; 
Salem County, N. J., about 1692, in company with Connecticut 
settlers, who located in Fenwick's Colony, where he married 
Rachel . Their descendants scattered over New Jersey, Penn- 



35 

sylvania and Delaware. Sliourds, in his "History and Genealogy 
of Feuwick's Colony," says that Henry " became one of the leading 
men in Fenwick's Colony, as the records of Salem fully confirm." 
In partnership with one Eichard Whitacar, a Quaker, he opened a 
store in "New England Town." The firm, as appears by one of 
tlieir account books (now in the possession of Caroline Whitacar, a 
descendant of Richard Whitacar), must have done an extensive 
business, besides owning a sloop which traded as a regular packet 
between Cohansey and Boston. The first entries in this book 
are dated in 1704, but the firm must have been in ex- 
istence long before that time. Henry was elected a Justice 
of tiie Peace and served as foreman on the Grand Jurv of Salem 
Countv in 1707; Besides holdinfij the office of Overseer of the High- 
ways for South Cohansey precinct, he filled several other public offices 
of trust and confidence, all of which proves him to have been a 
representative man of the Colony. He died in 1726, leaving 
a large estate, including several negro slaves. His will, dated 
Feb. 9, 1726, was recorded in Liber 2, page 326 of Trenton 
V: wills. His children were: I, Henry; II, Epliraim ; III, Jere- 
miah ; IV, Dayton; and V, Judith. Samuel Buck, (21:) second son of 
Henry Buck, and Elizabeth Churchill, remained in Connecticut, 
where he married, January 23, 1690, Sarah, daughter of Deacon 
Samuel Butler. He died April 3, 1709, leaving issue.

Ezekiel Buck (3), the eldest son of Emanuel (or Enocb) Buck (1), 
died March 3, 1713, aged 63. He married, March 18, 1675, Rachel 
Andrews, whose father, John Andrews, was one of the earliest set- 
tlers at Farinington, Conn. Rachel Andrews, wife of Ezekiel Buck 



40 

(3), was boru in 1652, and survived lier husband. The date of her 
death does not appear. Ezekiel (3) was a farmer, except when 
serving in the militia, an occupation for which he seems to have 
had a peculiarly strong taste. By purchase, or otherwise, he be- 
came the owner of the greater part of Ins father's lands. In 1682, 
he seems to have become discontented, and to have determined to 
leave Wethersfield. To that eud, he petitioned the General Court 
for permission to erect a plantation in the Wabaguassat country ; 
but the General Court thought it was doubtful whether that coun- 
try was within the Connecticut Colon}', and denied the petition [2 
Conn. CoL Eec. p. 99). In 1698, he became one of the original pur- 
chasers and proprietors of the Duiham Grant. In 1712, just before 
his death, he and his sons and others, petitioned the town authori- 
ties of Wethersfield, to be set off by themselves, as a new parish, or 
society, which petition was granted; and the new society took the 
name of Newington. He died possessed of a large estate, both per- 
sonal and landed, as appears by the inventory thereof, as filed by 
his son Enoch (Lib. 8, p. 217, Hartford Probate Eecords). 



Last Will of Ezekiel Buck (3). 

In the Name of God, Amen, the Second day of March, 1713, I,

Andrews, married, January 13, 1698, Sarah, daughter of .)ohu Ben- 
son, of Farming-ton, Ct., who was born in 1679. Ezekiel (32) was a 
farmer, but seems to have been one of the unfortunate kind. The 
town records of Wethersfield contain an order relating to him, 
under date of July 14, 1715 : 

" Voted by the townsmen, that whereas Ezekiel Buck has a long 
" time been under infirmities of body, and has put himself into the 
j" hands of a physician, for a cure, and has not wherewith to answer 
' the charge, It is voted, that the selectmen, for the time being 
" shall supply him with a sufficiency of money, or what is needful 
" in his necessity, in order to his obtaining of a cure of his infirm- 
" ity." He died soon after the entry of this order, leaving issue — 
(43) Ezehel, b. March 5, 1699, and (44) Sarah, b. Feby. 8, 1701, of 
the fourth generation.

Milford, where, on December 5 he married Lydia, daughter of Sam- 
uel Brownsou, who \vas born February 23, 1702, and died January 3, 
1768. At New Milford, Ezekiel purchased a " right " near the falls, 



43 

aud became a farmer. He was active in town matters, and lield 
several offices, among them tliat of Pound-keeper, in 1734. He 
joined the first chnrch at New Milford, in 1727. He contributed 
largely to the building of the new schoolhouse for the Lanesville 
District, in 1727. He died May 10, 1745, bequeathing his property 
to his children, who subsequently sold it to Lazarus Ruggles, 
Sr., who erected extensive iron works on it. Ezekiel's will is filed

the writings she left behind were a list (in pamphlet form) of the 
names of all the scholars, who had attended lier schools, and a small 
E'lglish Grammar, for the use of schools. She was universally es- 
teemed. She died December 4, 1835. In the introduction to her 
pamphlet containing tlie list aforesaid, she states: — "I commenced to 
"teach in February, 1788, and have taught both Summer and "Winter? 
'each successive season, with the exception of one Summer. I have 
" taught in Thirty-five different neighborhoods, in New Milford, 
"Washington, Roxbury, Woodbury, Sherman, and Wilton, in Con- 
"necticut, and in Pawling, N. Y. I have taught 1803 different schol- 
"ars. Fifty-nine couples who have been my pupils, have 
"been married together, and perhaps, many more of whom 
" I have no knowledge. All the children of Seventy-three 
" different families, have been my pupils. I have had 107 scholars? 
" that one or both of the parents, have been under my tuition. I have 
" had 107 scholars the descendants of one family. In one instance 
"I have taught Grandfather, children, and grand-children." This 
she wrote, and published in 1826, while still teaching. (See Genea- 
logy of Giddings Family.) 

hachel Buck (33), daughter of Ezekiel Buck (3) and Rachel 
Andrews, married, in 1697, John Brownson, eldest son of John 
Brownson, of Farmington, Ct. He was born Aug 25, 1665. Rachel 
died in 1708, and her husband married (2) in 1709, Mary Chatterton, 
of New Haven, Ct. He removed from W^ethersfield to South 
Carolina shortly after his second marriage. Rachel's issue by him 



45 

were John, b. in 1698 ; Mary, 1j. in 1700, m. Ford, and Sarah, 

b. in 1708, m. McGregor. These all removed with their father 

to South Carolina. 

Jonathan Buck (34), son of Ezekiel Buck (3) and Kachel Andrews, 
married March 4, 1700, Mary Andrews. With his brother Enoch 
and others, he removed to New Milford in 1715, having previously 
(June 9, 1715) purchased of Daniel Boardraan certain property 
rights in the New Milford grant, on both sides of the Housatonic 
River. The first was on Aspetuck Hill, next north of the Parsonage 
lot, on the east side of the street known as Poplar Highway. This 
lie called his " home lot" and on it built his residence, which was 
on Pophir street, a little north of the present residence of Mr. 
William D. Black. This he eventually sold to his brother Enoch 
and built on the second tract, which was ten acres, adjoining his 
"home lot." The third lot was forty acres on the plain west of the 
river. He brought with him several children and several 
more were added to his family after his arrival at 
New Milford. Soon after his arrival, to wit, 1718, he 
joined the First New Milford Church. His wife joined 
it three years later. He seems to have been refractory in church 
discipline, and for that reason, was suspended a few years later. 
He was, liowever, restored in 1735. He followed the occupation of 
a farmer, but was active in public matters, holding town offices, and 
contributing liberally to all town improvements. When it was pro- 
posed to make the ''North Purchase," and enlarge the towushij), 
he became one of the proprietaries therein, and in various other 
ways contributed to the advancement of the settlement, assisting to 
build the school house. His children were — Ebenezer, born about 
1701 (one of the North Purchase proprietors) ; Ilu^h, born about 
1702; L//f7/Vr, born about 1704 ; SarnJi, born about 1706; Jonathan, 
born about 1708 ; Moses, born about 1710; Joseph, born about 1712; 
Comfort, born April 19, 1717 ; Aaron, born Jan. 20, 1720 ; Thnnk/id, 
born Ai)ril 30, 1723; Martin and Timothy, born Oct. 27, 1725. 

Ruth, dauglit^r of Jonathan Buck (34) and Mary Andrews, mar- 
ried June 7, 1721, Nathan Terrill, of Old Milford, Conn. Terrill 
came to New Milford, a young man, the year prior to his marriage. 
His father, John Terrill, gave him a "right" of land in New Mil- 
ford, and his " home lot " and ten acres were located in Park Lane, 
on wdiicli, for a time, he resided. He was a farmer. Their children 
were : BaiuJ, b. April 22, 1723 ; Buth, b. Nov. 22. 1724 ; Daniel, b.

Jonathan, Jr., son of Jonathan Buck (34) and Mary Andrews, m. 
Jan. 9, 1732, Betsy Bostwick, who was b. Mar. 23, 1715. He joined 
the First Church in New Milford. in 1734, and his wife in 1735. At 
an early age, he bad been apprenticed to the trade of a Copper 
Smith, under Benjamin Bunnell, of Old Milford. Here he remained 
until 1728, when he came to New Milford, and applied to the vil- 
lagers, to set him up in his trade. Several of the New Milford 
people, including his father and his Uncle Enoch, interested them- 
selves in his behalf, and started a subscription, which netted a hand- 
some sum, and which was turned over to him. He began his trade 
and prospered. In 1730, he bought 10 acres of laud, on the East side 
of the East branch of the Aspetuck, and soon after bought 22 acres 
more, near it. He was quite prominent in his day. In 1750, he re- 
fused to conform to the somewhat arbitrary rules of conduct of 
the First New Milford Congregation, and for absenting himself 
from the meetings thereof, he and his wife, in September of that 
year, were cited to appear before the Church authorities, and give 
their reasons. They duly appeared and stated their reasons, one of 
which was that they did not believe in the Saybrook platform. 
This was not deemed satisfactory, and time to make further answer 
was given them. Not appearing they were admcniished. They 
then assisted in forming the separate Congregational Church, of 
which they became members. They had issue : Phebe, b. March 18, 
1734 ; Lois, b. June 5, 1736 ; Betttj, b. Jan. 26, 1740 ; Zervia, b. Sept. 
2,1742; Anna, b. Jan. 13, 1746; Jonathan, b. Sept. 6, 1748. and

Fourth Geneeation. 
Issue of Enoch Buck (37) and Mary Beebe. 

In 1707, the whole of the territory bordering on the Honsatonic 
River, now withm the limits of Litchfield County, Conn., was an un- 
broken wilderness, untrodden save by savage beasts of prey and 
still more savage red men. 

It is true, that for half a century, at least, before that date, 
there had been a footpath from Hartford to Farmington, and 
thence to the straggling, infant settlement of "Woodbury, on the 
Naugatuc ; but from the latter places, we'stward and northward, no 
foot of white man had yet pressed the virgin soil, or disturbed the 
grim wilderness of the deuselj^ timbered hills and valleys. Naught 
but the uncertain trail of the bloodthirsty savage, marred the com- 
plete naturalness of the country. 

Previous to 1700, several abortive efforts had been made to estab- 
lish a colony on the northern Housatonic. As early as 1670, the 
Colonial Court had granted the privilege to Nathan Gould and John 
Burr, of purchasing the countr}- from the savages, and clearing a 
plantation thereon, "if it should be capable of such a result " and 
a committee was appointed by the same authorit}^ to consider the 
feasibility of the project. 

Under this privilege, a grant of 26,000 acres of land on both sides 
of the Housatonic, was procured, but no one was found bold enough 
to explore it, much less to undertake the extremely hazardous task 
of effectinsj a settlemeht on it, and so the scheme fell throuoh. Five 
years later, a spasmodic effort was made to the same end, which 
likewise failed by lack of persons willing to risk their lives among 
the treacherous natives. 

In 1678 Colonel Robert Treat and others, obtained from the 
General Court "liberty to view and buy convenient lands for a 
plantation," to the westward of the New Haven and Hartford settle- 
ments; but for some unexplained reason, these gentlemen made no 
purchase, probabl}^ owing to difficulty in obtaining a proper title 
from the Indian owners of the soil. It was not until February 8, 
1702, that a company of 109 individuals at Old Milford, on Long 
Island Sound, secured from the native chiefs a deed of the terri- 
tor}' now comprising the southern part of New Milford Tow^nship. 



51 

Even then the Indian title was found to be defective, and was not 
made good until August 29, 1705, by a new deed from the Indians, 
in which however, tlie latter reserved the right to fish in the waters 
within the grant, a right which has not yet been yielded to the 
pale faces. 

The Legislative title to this laud, or })lantation, Avas granted by 
the General Court, O^t. 22, 1703. Tha sarna was divided into 104: 
parts or shares, and the payment of Twenty-four shillings secured 
one share, or "right," which right, was assignable; and it was 
agreed, that those first actuall}^ settling, should draw lots, and take 
their lots, together with liberty to begin where they pleased, and 
that those who should afterwards settle, either by themselves or 
their assigns, should take their lots as they should come to settle, 
next lot to him that went before him, and so on. The "home" or 
"town lots" were twenty-one rods wide, and sixty rods long, while 
the " meadow lots " and "farm lots" varied in area. Fully two- 
thirds of these " rights," were sold by the original owners, long be- 
fore any attempt was made to found a settlement. On the 22d day 
of June 1706, John Noble, of Westfield, Mass., being then about 
forty years of age, and the father of Eleven children, purchased one 
of these " rights." Early the following Spring, accompanied by his 
little daughter, Sarah, — then about nine years old, he tramped 
through the forest, all the way from Westfield, Mass., to the Housa- 
tonic, to explore his purchase. These are said to have been the 
first white persons, who ever trod the soil of New Milford Town- 
ship. This daughter afterwards became the first "School Marni " 
of the New settlement, and the wife of Titus Hinman of Woodbury. 

John Noble was certainly a brave and resolute man, thus to ven- 
ture into the trackless wilderness, at the risk of his own life and 
that of his child. Arriving in the vicinity of the present New Mil- 
ford, the fatlier built a hut of ]>alisades, to protect him and his little 
companion from the attacks of the wild beasts and red men. The 
plucky little girl acted as chef d cuiiine and performed such other 
matronly duties, as the circumstances would permit, Avhile the stal- 
wart father, selecting a building site, began to fell the giants of the 
for st, and let in tlie light of the sun. In this occupation he was 
joined by his sou, John, Jr, the following summer, (the latter having 
purclnised a right in the tract) and the two, that summer, built a 
log-hut on the site of the present residence of Col. James D. Bliner 
on the east side of the river. L itt-r, they were joined by the other 
members of tho familv. 



52 

In the Spring of 1708, several other settlers, including the Bost- 
wicks and Bronsons, came with their families, and pitched their 
abodes near that of the pioneers. In 1711, twelve "right' 
owners, with their families, numbering in all some 70 souls, 
had added their presence to the settlement, and built log 
huts near the river. The following 3'ear, the town of New Milford 
was organized, and a Minister called. The capital of the settlers 
was limited; but fortunately^ the conveniences for obtaining the 
necessary food and comforts of life, were peculiarly favorable. 
Although the soil was ha.rd to clear, it was exceedingly fertile 
and productive. Game in great variety was plentiful. One terror 
only, filled the minds of the busy settlers,—the spectre of Indian 
outrages, — for, although the native Indian tribes were in the main 
friendly, they, in common with the whites, lived in continual dread 
of the adjoining tribes, allies of the French, who committed fre- 
quent depredations. In 1713, a township was created, and town 
officers elected. In the spring of 1714, two or three families from 
Wethersfield, neighbors of- the Bucks, joined the settlers. 

Ezehcl Buck (3j, as we have seen, died at Wethersfield that year. 
His two sous, Joiiathdii and Enoch, were then aged respectively 35 
and 32. Jonathan had a wife a)id three or four children : Enoch 
was unmarried. They had heard of the progress of the infant set- 
tlement at New Milford, from the families who had gone there, and 
soon after the death of their father, had determined on locating 
there. To that end, early in January, 1715, they sold the land de- 
vised to them by their father, and on February 21, 1715, Enoch 
Bud- bought of Joseph Peck, of Old Milford, for £20, a 
" right " in the New Milford plantation. Soon after, 
in company with his brother Jonathan, on horseback, 
loaded with packs of goods, he set out for the new 
Colony, where the party arrived in due time, and where Enoch 
began work at the carpeiiter's trade. On February 27th, 1716, he 
bought of Thomas Waller another lot in the " Indian Field," west 
of the river. After this, from time to time, he purchased several 
other lots, and finally, in 1719, bought his brother Jonathan's home-, 
stead lot, on the west side of Poplar street, in the village, a little 
way north of the present residence of Mr. Wm. D. Black, where he 
took up his residence. 

During his t^vo years stay in the settlement, he had not been idle. 
His labor was in great demand, and he did not fail to profit by it, 



53 

Samuel Beehe, who settled at Old Milford in 1712, went tlie next 
year, with his wife and five children, to Daubnrj, and thence to the 
New Milford settlement. He did not purchase lands there, it 
seems, but remained there until 1727. During this time, he ex- 
hibited great activity and business capacity, took prominent part in 
town affairs and held several town offices. His eldest daughter, 
3Iarj/, — being a bright, active and intelligent damsel, — soon at- 
tracted the attention and won the affections of Enoch Buck. 
This circumstance resulted in a marriage between them, in 1717. 
The union was a long and happy one, blessed with eleven children, 
as hereinafter stated. 

In 1710, twenty-three families had permanently located in the New 
Settlement. Many more had settled there, but had removed, or 
died. 

Enoch Buck was the peer of any of that sturdy band of pioneers. 
Naturally he was conservative ; and when economy was to be prac- 
ticed in public matters, he depvicated undue haste, and counseled 
moderation ; but when the public g(iod clearly demanded sacrifices, 
he would earnestl}^ advocate making them. 

Thus, in 1719, when certain of his neighbors protested against 
supporting a minister with a large family, because the necessary 
tax would reach " more than ten pence to the pound upon the rate- 
able estates " of the twenty-three families, " who were mostly low 
in the world," and " slow in growth," and would require the build- 
ing of a church, he advocated, that keeping the minister was a pub- 
lic necessity ; and so the minister was retained and the church built 
in 1720. 

Enoch and his wife, Mary, both joined it and remained active 
workers therein, until their deaths. He was truly a public spirited 
man. When in 1723, the town needed the service of a blacksmith, 
but the people thought themselves too poor to set one up in busi- 
ness, Enoch Buck deeded the poor mechanic a quantity of land for 
a home and shop lot, and otherwise contributed to setting up the 
smith in business. He also contributed to set up a copper smith in 
the village. 

He was always one of the. foremost in religious and educational 
projects. In 1715 he assisted to establish a school house near the 
" iron works," one of the first established in that section of the 
township. He was one of the 64 persons who in 1722 procured for 
New Milford from William Whiting and others, what is known as 



54 

the " north purchase," whicli made New Milford township tlie 
largest in the State. In matters purely social, he seems always to 
have borne well his part. At his trade (tliat of a carpenter) he was 
an expert, and liis services were in great demand witli his neigh- 
bors. Id 1729 Daniel Boardman perhaps the wealthiest person in 
the settlement, " in consideration of liis setting up and covering a 
" lean to my dwelling, and being performed to my full satisfac- 
" tion," deeded Enoch Buck, carpenter, seven acres of land. 

Enoch Buck left no will, but before his death, divided his lands 
by deed among his children. I have been unable to ascertain either 
the dates of the respective deaths of him and his wife, Mary, or the 
resting place of their ashes. They must have died between 1740 
and 1750. No stones mark their last resting place. Pioneers of 
civilization and the progenitors of a Mighty host, they have slept 
for more than a century beneath the soil on which they began the 
struggle against barbarism, cruelty and ignorance, which sti'uggle 
at no distant day will make the American Republic the representa- 
tive of all that is wisest and best for the interests of the human 
race. The issue of Enoch Buck (3^) and Blary Beebe were : 
(53) Ebenzer, b. Juny., 1718. (54) Grace, b. Jauy. 22, 1719. 

(55) Hannah, b. June 9, 1720. (56) Abagail, b. June 11, 1722.

Remarks Upon James Buck (58) and Elizabeth Sherman. 

Of James Buck (58), the sixth child of Euock Buch (37) and Mary 
Beebe, it has, unfortunately, to be said that all those who knew him 
face to face have long since joined the great majority, and the pub- 
lic and private records furnish but meagre data from which to com- 
pile a satisfactory sketch of him. It has been said that he took 
part in the French and English wars. However that may be, it is 
certain that when the struggle between England and the Colonies 
br(jke out he entered the Connecticut militia and was appointed 
captain of a company, and that he did good service in the Colonial 



58 

cause, participating in several battles and skirmishes, particularly 
in tlie affair at Horse Neck. Ever afterwards lie was honorably 
known as "Captain James." He purchased lands on Long Moun- 
tain, about four miles northeast of New Milford, where his wife also 
owned a considerable tract of Lmd which she had inherited from 
her father. 

Subsequently, he purchased a quantity of meadow land, and also 
a right, in the township of New Milford, from Mary Cashing. In 
time, he became, as men in a worldly sense were then measured, 
" well to do in the world." On a portion of his Long Mountain 
property, he built his family residence and outbuildings. Later, he 
built a small shop and store, over the counter of which, in addition 
to the farming and weaving business (both of which he carried on), 
he supplied the neighboring farmers with the more common neces- 
saries of life. Here he lived, and reared his large family, and here 
he died. These buildings have long since crumbled into dust ; but 
their site is still plainly indicated by the old cellar, and well (the 
latter still in a good state of preservation), opposite the residence 
of Edson P. Hill, Esq., on the Long Mountain road. 

It does not appear that he held town offices, or had any political 
aspirations. He was, in a true sense, however, a public spirited 
man, He actively interested himself in the cause- of education, 
and assisted in establishing tiie first school in his neighborhood. 
Both he and his wife were active and influential members of the 
New Milford Church, in the cemeter}^ connected with which, their 
remains repose side by side. James Buck was a man of iron con- 
stitution and possessed great firmness of character. For honesty, 
integrity, fair dealing and all those virtues, which go to make up a 
truly Cljristian man, his life and character stand without a blot, and 
above a shadow of reproach. He was affectionate to his family, 
and generous to his neighbors and the jjoor. He lived a quiet, un- 
ostentatious, but eminently honorable and useful life, and died in 
the faith of his Puritan forefathers. He was a great sufferer from 
the inhumanity of the British, they having poisoned the waters, 
which caused him to be affected with spasms till his death. His 
wife Mary, who had been in attendance on him, suddenly sickened 
and died ten days before him. 

Hisi hist Will and Testament, was executed a few days before his 
death, was duly proved by his executors and admitted to probate 
by Judge Daniel Everett, Probate Judge of New Milford District, 



59 

February 20, 1793. The testator's lands were appraised at £147 
6s. Od. and his personal property at X258 8s. lOd. This will is, in 
many respects, a peculiar one. In the hope that curious readers 
in possession of facts or documents which I have uotbeen able to ob- 
tain, may find in it matter of interest to them which may assist them 
in making further investi^^ations of the subject, I have thus briefly 
touched upon, I here insert a copy of it : —

Joel Turrell, 



EUzahetli Sherman, wife of James Buck (58), was descended from

Fifth Generation. 

The C/iildren of James Buck (and Elizabeth Sherman, all horn at New 
3Iilford, Litchfield Co., Conn.,) loere : — 

(64) EUTH BUCK, born Dec. 28, 1749, d. near New Milford, 
Conn., Jan. 20, 1830. She never married. The duty early devolved 
upon her, of assisting her mother in the cares of a hirge and 
necessitous household ; a duty, wliicli for nearly half a C3ntury, she 
faithfully and affectionately performed. Throughout the dark days 
of the War against the French and Indians, and the still darker 
days of the Ilevoluti(jnary struggle, when her father and brothers 
were absent, battling for their Country, her wise counsels and her 
kind and fostering care over her younger brothers and sisters, were 
of inestimable value to the latter, and remembered by them all with 
gratitude, later in life. She was a modest, unassuming lad}^ whose 
tastes were purely domestic. All her brothers and sisters, except 
Salmon and Jerusha, had married early in life, and had their own 
families to support and their own pathways to clear. Her father, 
for years, had been an invalid, the result of drinking water poisoned 
by the British during the War, from the effects of which 
he died. Her sister Jerusha, alone remained with her, to 
aid in clieering the last hoars of their aged parents. To Jerusha, 
she became greatly attached. For her kindness, benevolence, 
and piety, she was universally esteemed by the community for miles 
around, in which she came to befamiharly known as " Aunt Ruth, " 



64 

For many years before lier death, she resided with her sister 
Jernsha. It was her custom to trade at the store of Levi S. Kuapp, 
Esq., at New Milford. This gentleraau, now hale and hearty, and 
ap;ed eighty-eight, distinctly remembers "Aunt Euth " and recently 
spoke of her to the writer in terms of the highest respect. In com- 
mon with most persons who pass a life of single blessedness, she 
was in some ways eccentric. 

An instance of this, was her peculiar request, that when she 
died, a plain stone, without inscription of any kind, sliould be 
placed at the head of her grave. This request was executed. She 
sleeps beside her beloved sister Jerusha (Sandford), in the Cemetery 
at Gaylordsville, near New Milford, and only a rude marble slab, 
discolored by time, indicates her last resting place.

1834, m. Aug. 31, 1775, Hannah Fairchild, b. Feby. 20, 1753, d. 
Sept. 26, 1825. Husband was a farmer residing at New Preston. 
Litchfield County, Conn. He was Twenty-five years of age 
when he married Hannah Fairchild. He inherited the vigor- 
ous constitution and character of his father. He was, at this 
time, an experienced farmer, and a man in other res]iects as well 
informed perhaps, as the educational opportunities of the time 
could produce. He is said to have possessed a great affaction for 
the "root of all evil," and to have preferred his own pecuniary 
interests, to those of his neighbors; but this assertion lacks 
necessary confirmation. It is probably the venom of envy. 

Soon after his marriage the war cloud of tlie Revolution ()ver- 
shadowed Connecticut, and he volunteered with his father and 
brothers, to protect his State from the red-coats. He is spoken 
of as having been honest in his dealings, which could hardly have 
been if the weakness of money love was humored as in these da^^s. 

He early joined the Presbyterian Church, and became prominent 
in its service and councils. He was rated as ''Second " among six 
grades of pew holders, who were seated by age and station in life. 
In 1802, he was assessed on $1,228 for church purposes. After che 
war he pursued his vocation as a farmer, for a few years, on Long 
Mountain, on lands deeded to him by his father, but becoming 
dissatisfied, purchased a farm, and settled in the New Preston So- 
ciety, where he joined the New Preston Church, an ecclesiastical 
off-shoot of the Ncav Milford Society, which had been established 
as esrlj'^ as 1745. In this, he soon rose to the official dignity of 



65 

deacon, the duties of which office, he faithfully and creditably 
performed for many years. He was always a patron 
of education, and was one of the original subscribers to and 
founders of the New Milford Union Library. He was a man hon- 
ored and respected throughout a large section. His remains and 
those of his wife repose in upper Merrvall Cemetery. His wife, 
Hannah Fairchild, was of a respectable English family, being de- 
scended from Abram Fairchild, who emigrated to Stratford, Con- 
necticut, from Stratford, in Stratford, England, and was among the 
earliest settlers at Stratford.

Husband was a respectable farmer, residing at New Milford, Litch- 
field County, (/onn. Mrs. Gregory died there, after only six years 
of married life. Her husband survived her only four years, and 
did not re-marry. Their graves are side by side, in the Old New 
Milford Cemetery, near those of James Buck and his wife Elizabeth. 

The writer has diligently enquired, and searched for something 
of interest concerning their characters and lives, but has not been 
able to find anything worth noting. 

(67) J08IAH BUCK, b. Jan. 25, 1756, d. at or near New Mil- 
ford, Conn., July 13, 1813; m. 1780, Mary Towner, b. in 1758, d. 
near Rome, N. Y., in 1803. He served five 3-ears as a soldier in the 
Patriot iVrmy, during the War for Independence, reaching the grade 
of Lieutenant. As such, he was appointed Forage Master, a posi- 
tion of great responsibility and danger, but which he filled with 
credit to himself and the cause. While discharging the duties of 
this last office, he was compelled to undergo long periods of ex- 
posure, wljic-h undermined a str<mg and vigorous constitution, made 
iiiin a cripple, during his last years on earth, and finally terminated 
his life. After his marriage, he settled on a farm at Sherman, where 
he resided many years. Both he and his wife, however, as appears 
by the records of the New Milford Congregational Church, Avere 
members and regular Communicants of that Church. He owned a 
pew there, near that of his brother Asaph's, which was in 1802 
rated as " Third Class." He was assessed on $733.50. In 1803 he 
moved with his family to Oneida County, N. Y., locating near Rome. 
His wife dying shortly afterwards, and his children marrying and 
Settling down there, he returned to New Milford, where he died in- 
testate in 1813. His daughter Philomela was appointed his Ad- 



66 

ministratrix, and valued Ms personal estate at $145.43. His wife, 
Mary Towner, was a woman of exemplary cliaracter, industry and 
piety. She died suddenly, deeply lamented by n large circle of 
relatives and friends. Her remains rest in a cemetery, five miles 
south of Eome, N. Y. Loving hands caused to be chiseled on her 
grave-stone the lines : — 

"Blessed be her memory, ever blest," 
"Thej' loved ber most that knew her best." 

She was tlie second daughter of Captain Daniel Towner, who was 
the third son of Samuel Towner, an Englishman, who with his 
family of four sons and three daughters (it is supposed came from 
England) settled about 1715 in Ehode Island. Thence Captain 
Towner removed to New Fairfield, Litchfield County, Conn., where 
he married Martha Barnes, and liad six children, viz: — 

Marcus, killed by being thrown from a horse, aged 12. 

Daniel, killed by a falling tree; aged 25. 

Sirus, died of consumption, aged 27. 

His three daughters, all married, died at middle age of consump- 
tion. He served as Captain of Militia during the whole of the 
Revolutionary War, and was among the sufferers by poisoned water, 
at Horse Neck, (the British having poisoned the wells and springs, 
from which many died). For a long time his recovery was doubt- 
ful. His wife watched over him during his long illness, and it was 
owing to her care, that he recovered. He afterwards died ol" con- 
sumption.

b. Dec. 14, 1749, d. Mar. 29, 1822. Husband was a farmer, residing 
at New Milford, Litchfield County, Conn. Both buried in the 
Cemetery at Gaylordsville, Litchfield County, Conn. 

Not until she had seen the grave close over both of her parents, 
did Jerusha Buck once entertain the thought of leaving those whom 
she had so dearly loved, and so faithfully served. But paternal 
dut}' and service were at an end; she had now passel h^^r thirty- 
fifth year, — a time in life when mere looks, cannot catch a husband. 
From the example and advice of her eldar sister Rath, to whom she 
was greatly attached, she had profited much, and bv practice had 
become an experienced house-keeper. Nor was this all. She is 
described at this time as possessing in a high degree those quali- 
ties of mind, heart and disposition which always render a woman 
companionable.

Ebenezer Sandford, an active, energetic, well-bred youug mauwitli 
some means, had about this time arrived at New Milford from New- 
town, Conn., seeking a place on which to settle down for life. He 
was descended from Thomas De Sandford, who came over to Eng- 
land from Normandy, wdth "William the Conqueror" as appears 
by an entry on the Roll in "Battle Abbey," bearing date Oct. 14, 
1066. A descendant of this Thomas Sandford (also named Thomas), 
emigrated to Boston, Mass., in 1631, subsequently removed to Old 
Millford, Conn., and died there in 1681. Ebenezer was the latter's 
great-grand-sou. On bis advent in the New Milford settlement, he 
was not long in discovering in Miss Jerusha Buck, such a character 
and person, as would make a help meet, suitable for the most dig- 
nified of his sex, and after a brief courtship, the couple were mar- 
ried. 

They removed to, and located in the Merryall District ; but a few 
years afterwards, pitched upon, perhaps the richest tract in New 
Milford Town, (m the West bank of the winding Housatonic, just 
below what is called the " Straits," where they resided the remain- 
der of their days. 

On this farm, is a deep cavern called in those days the " Tory 
Hole," from the fact tliat King George's friends were in the habit 
of secreting themselves therein, from the wrath of the patriots and 
furnishing supplies to the Boyalist forces. Mr. Sanford was a man 
of exemplary character and habits, noted for his piety, patriotism 
and industry. He was a great walker, and would sekh^n ride. He 
was was m the habit of walking to the Village of New Milford, five 
or six miles to attend service in the Episcopal Church, of which he 
was an active membe'r. It is related of him, that on a bitter 
cold d;.y in Winter, the family Avere riding to Church, when 
thev overtook and persuaded him to ride. He had not been in the 
sleigh hnig, before a liaril ball of snow from one of the horse's feet, 
struck him ])lumb in the face. He at once made an excuse to get 
out, and no amount of persuasion could induce him to ride again that 
winter. The following from an obituary notice i)ublishad at the 
time of Jerusha's death, will be of imterc^st to the family. " The 
" deceased early made a ])ublic profession of her faith in Christ, and 
" was ;i mt-mber of the First Congregation Church of New Milford, 
" during nearly 80 years. During all her extended life she possessed 
"remarkable health and vigor ot constitution. But a few hours 
"previous to her tleatli, the family requested her to have a physi- 



68 

cian, but she strouoly objected, saying that she had never had the 
advice of a doctor for sickness, and was unwilling, then, to com- 
mence. She evinced her readiness to go, at the call of the 
Master. On being asked, when near her end, if she still felt as 
she had uniformly done, ready and willing to die, she answered 
with much animation, " Yes — Yes" — which were her last words. 
The influence of her pious and exemplary life, will be long 
cherished in the remembrance of all who knew lier. She was the 
last survivor of ten children, all but one, of whom, lived to 
a good old age, leaving a good hope that it is well with 
them. Up to her last days she exhibited a distinct re- 
collection and warm interest, in the scen(^s and events 
of the Revolutionary War, in which three of her brothers were 
engaged. She breathed the same patriotic spirit till tha last. She 
was often referred to by those applying for pensions, for the ser- 
vices of husbands, fathers and grandfathers. About a year be- 
fore her death, a gentleman called to ascertain if she knew any- 
thing respecting his grandfather's services in the War. She 
needed no time for reflection, bat immediately replied that in her 
younger days slie was a weaver, and at one time had just com- 
menced a piece of tow cloth, when his grandfather, one evening, 
received notice that he must set out next morningj, As he was a 
neighbor, he called unreservedly on her father for assistance. He 
had no shirt to wear, and she immediately cut her piece of tow 
cloth out of the loom, and made the garment by morning, when 
he started for the army wearing it on his back."

Elizabeth Buck was a woman of cheerful disposition, in active 
sympathy with every good work, particularly that of a religious or 
charitable nature. She was, from early youth, a member of the 
First Congregational Church at New Milford, and greatly esteemed 
for her piety. The testimonial of those who knew and loved her is 
thus expressed upon her tomb-stone: "Precious in the sight of the 
Lord is the death of His saints."

Daniel Turrill was one of the earliest settlers at Old Milford, 
Connecticut. He was descended from a very ancient and honorable 
family in England, who spelled their names Tyrell. Many of his 
descendants of the present generation spell their names in that way. 
In 1706, he became one of the proprietors of New Milford Town- 
ship, receiving by allotment Lot No. 16. On this tract his son 
Caleb Turrill (whose wife was Abagail Basset, as after mentioned) 
settled and raised a family of fifteen children, the ninth of whom 
was John Turrill, who, in 1786, became the husband of Elizabeth 
Buck. He was energetic and industrious in business, influential in 
the Church and society and an uncompromising patriot. He 
served a long time in Washington's Army. He was 
taken prisoner by the British, at the Capture of Fort 
Washington, and remained a prisoner some time before 
he was exchanged. At the close of the war he married and 
settled down to farming in New Milford Township. He led an in- 
dustrous and useful lite, and died greatly respected. He was twice 
married. His remains rest, beside those of his beloved Elizabeth, 
in the old Cemetery at New Milford. Both of them were members 
of and constant attendants at the First Congregational Church 
there. Their pew was in the same row with those of his brother- 
in-law, iVsaph Buck, on the right pul[)it end of the Church. To 
maintain his sitting there in 1802, he was assessed on $806. 

(70) ASAPH BUCK, b. April 21, 1762, d. Feb. 10, 1848, at New

Conn., June 30, 1768, d. at New Lisbon, N. Y., March 30, 1855. 
Both buried at New Lisbon, Otsego Co., N. Y. 

Asaph Buck was twenty-six years of age, when he married Phebe 
Wainright. His life had been spent on the farm. Baing too young 
to boar the harilships of a soldier's life, he had charge of the pater- 
nal acres, while his father and brothers were serving in the cause 
of independence. Soon after his marriage, he purchased 
a tarm near to or adjoining that of his father on 
which he lived at the time of the latter's decease. With 
his brother, Samuel B, he was charged with the duty of execu- 
ting the trusts of his father's v/ill, a duty which was faith- 
fully performed. His share of the paternal estates was two acres 
of meadow land West of the barn ; an undivided quarter of a right 
through New Milford Township and a tenth of the residium of the 
lands and person.dty. Though a man of medium stature, he was 



70 

of superior, mental and physical streiigtli. His character was 
unsullied. He possessed great executive ability and sound 
judgment, in matters both public and private, which was much 
relied ujDon by his fellow townsmen. Very early in life, he and 
his wife united with the old First Congregational Church at New 
Milford, of which they rt>mained active Ccnnmunicants during 
their stay there. The records of the Church show that in 1803. 
their pew was maintained by an assessment on the sum of $764. 
Mr. Buck likewise contributed liberally to the causes of religion 
and education. The Minister at this time, was Rev. Stanley 
Griswold, a man of ability and sterling qualities, Upon the death 
of his father in 1793, Mr. Buck sold his Long Mountain lands to 
Jeremiah Baldwin, Jr., of Old Milford and purchased more 
desirable ones, closer to New Milford, where, for ten years, he 
lived a quiet industrious life. In 1793, the sale of lands by the 
State of New York, attracted thousands of farmers from 
the New England States and New Jersey. The tide of emigration 
from these States continued to flow thitherward until 1806. 
In 1803, Asaph Buck sold his New Milford lands, and with his 
family and others, sought a new home west of the Hudson. They 
reached, and finally determined to locate in what was then a part of 
the Town of Pittsfield, Otsego County, N. Y. That pii't, three years 
later, separated from Pittsfipld, was organized as tht^ Town of Lisbon. 
Two years later, the word "New" was preiixed. tLnd Mi*. Back 
purchased a farm, whereon he lived ani labored ths ram lindar of 
his days, over forty years. He did some service in the War of 1812, 
but how long the records to not disclose. Both he and his wife 
were worthy members of the Congregational Church at New Lisbon, 
which they were largely instrumental in organizing and sustaining. 
They lived and died honored and respected, pionears of civil and 
religious liberty, and their remains rest besitle those of seven of 
their children in the village which they did so much to redeem from 
a savage state. 

(71) ' WILLIAM SHERMAN BUCK, b. Feb. 17, 1761, d. Aug. I, 
1844, m. April 27, 1787, Barentha York, b. at Stoningtoa, Conn., 
Sept. 27, 1770, d. Oct. 4, 1827. 

William Sherman Back attained his majority in 1785. The struggle 

between the Colonies and the Mother Country, was n )w at an ew\, 

and the great West, began to loom up, before the youthful Yankee 

vision, as the laud of promise. Young William was endowed with 



71 

great physical strength, euergy, perseverance and powers of endur- 
ance. The monotonous routine of a quiet life among the staid 
Puritan farmers of the Housatonic Valley chafed his restless active 
disposition and made him a fit subject for the emigration fever, 
which had already become well nigh epidemic throughout New 
England. The ardent youth was soon seized with a desire to taste 
the adventures and dangers of frontier life. In 1763 several New 
Milford families led by Kev. Noah AVindham, Pastor of the New 
Milford Church, had emigrated to the Wyoming Valley, (now 
Luzerne County) Pennsylvania, and effected a settlement. Among 
those who had risked their lives and f jrtuues in this hazardous 
undertaking was young William's uncle, Wdliam by name. As has 
been before stated, the latter after establishing himself at the 
Wyoming settlement, gave his services to the Colonial cause during 
the war, as Captain of Militia and was but-ihered at the bloody 
massacre at Wyoming in 1778. His family fled on foot all the way 
back to Connecticut, but as the war was now over, they determined 
to retrace their steps. This was v'ouug William's opportunity. Re- 
ceiving from his father his share of the paternal estates, he 
bade his kindred a last affdctionate adieu, turned his back upon his 
native New England, and accompained his uncle's famil}'^ back to 
Wyoming. Of the particulars of th it journey, there are no data at 
hand, but consid-'ring the mode of travelling and the kind of roads 
extant in those days, it may be safely asserted that it was a long 
wearisome tramp, beset Avith liardships and frought with many dis- 
appointments. Young William did not however, tarry long at 
Wyoming. A settlement had been begun at Wyalusing (then Sus- 
quehanna), now Bradford County, Pennsylvania, about this time. 
Thither, in company with others, over mountains and through 
forests, swamps and i-ivers, tramped William S. Buck in 1787, where 
he met, wooed and on the 27th <if April, in the same year married 
Bareutha (daughtf^r of Amos York and Lucretia Miner.) The couple 
remained in Pennsylvania until, about 1791, during which time, their 
four eldest children, first saw the light of day. Thej^ then removed 
to what is now Tiiiniansburgh, Tompkins County, N. Y., where Wil- 
liam purchased a farm. It is said by his descendants that he lost 
his deed of this tract, before it had been recordedand thereby lost 
the land. However this may be, he soon purchased two other 
large tracts of wild land, one near Trumausburgh. and another in 
Hector Township (now Schuyler County) N. Y. On the first of these 



72 

the family resided for the next twenty years, during which time, 
the remaining nine children were born. During this twenty years also, 
a large area of wild land was clearedup and brought into astate of culti- 
vation by the energy and perseverance of the father and his stalwart 
sons. In the meantime, the conflicting claims of New York, Virginia, 
Massachusetts and Connecticut to the territory of the United States 
northwest of the Ohio River, had been silenced by negotiation, and 
Ohio, in 1802, had been curved thereout and admitted into the 
galaxy of States. The fertility of the soil of the infant State, par- 
ticularly in those portions contiguous to the Ohio River and Lake 
Erie, together with the throwing of immense tracts open to 
purchasers and settlers for nominal prices, and on easy terms of 
credit, at once drew the attention of the people of the older States. 
In 1818 the fnll tide of emigrationthither, had set in, and thousands 
of emigrant families from New England, New York and Pennsyl- 
vania trailed in motley procession towards the "Buckeye" border. 
Among those who sAvelled this throng in the spring of 1818, were 
William S. Buck and his family. He had fully anticipated the 
vision of Bishop Berkeley, that " Westward the course of empire 
takes its way," and perhaps had wisely concluded that furrowing 
the rich bottom lands f)f Ohio would be much easier than dodging 
the pine stumps and boulders of the " Empire State." After a 
fatiguing journey over bad roads, through dense forests, 
and inclement weathei", he reached Cincinnati, then an 
infant settlement, in the vicinity of which he located 
on, and for several years tilled lauds belonging to 
General William H. Harrison, afterwards President Har- 
rison. In the fall of 1827, his devoted wife Barentha York 
died, and the following year, with such of his chihlren as had not 
married, he removed to the vicinity of Patriot, Switzerland County, 
Indiana, where he purchased a farm, on which he resided until 
his death, in 1844, at the ripe age of nearly eighty years. Though 
prominent and active in the communities in which he lived, he 
was not ambitious of social distinction, nor political preferment. 
He is not known to have ever held a civil office beyond, perhaps, 
that of School Trustee, Road Master, or the like. He served a 
long time in the Militia, where he rose to the rank of Major, which 
rank he held until his age exempted him from military duty. In 
religions faith he was a Universalist, (from about 1834';, and was 
one of the oi'iginators of the first Church of that faith at Patriot, 



73 

ludiaiia, in tlie Cemetery connected with wliich, his remains rest. 
Daring the Eevolutionarj War, a spy for the British and a traitor 
to his Country, lived in Lichfield Co., Ct. By some means, his 
treason was discovered, and he was obliged to flee to save his life. 
He reached the shore of Long Island Sound, and was received 
on board of one of the enemy's ships, whence he Avent to Nova Scotia, 
and afterwards to Canada and in process of time to Ohio. As Wil- 
liam S. Buck was at church in Ohio, one Sabbath, who should come 
in but this refugee, who had changed his name. Mr. Buck recog- 
nized him immediately, altlif)ugli he had not seen him for more than 
thirty years. Afterwards forming the acquaintance of Mr. Buck, 
the refugee made many and minute inquiries, concerning all tlie 
families and persons he had t'orinerly known in Connecticut. Last 
of all he inquired what had become of a certain man, giving his 
trm name. Mr. Buck said to him, in the words of Holy Writ," Thou 
art fJie mnn.'" This he admitted, but begged, for the sake of his 
family, that his conduct, and true name, should not be made public, 
which was cordially granted. Barentha York was respectably con- 
nected. Her father, Captain Amos York, was a prominent Whig 
Colonist from Stonington, Conn. Early espousing the Colonial 
cause, he entered the service on the breaking out of the Revolu- 
tionary conflict. Soon after, he was captured by Indians and thrown 
into a Britisli ju'ison at Quebec, where he remained a prisoner a 
long time. AVhen he at last succeededed in esca))ing, his 
daughter Barentha met him on the way. He was too weak to 
stand the return journe3^ Tradition says his daughters van- 
sonied him from the Indians. He ;ind his wife settled at Wya- 
lusing, Pa., on a huge tract of land given them by his wife's father, 
where they reared nine cliildren, one of whom was Barentha, wife 
of William Sherman Buck (71), above mentioned. Capt. Aholiab 
Buck, a cousin of William Sherman Buck, who was massacred at 
Wyoming in 1778, mi'rried a sister of Barentha Y'ork. She was 
likewise a sister of Rev. Miner York, wIjo was made a prisoner by 
the Indians and taken to Albany, N. Y., where he remained a long 
time in jirison. The Miners, from whom Barentha was descended 
on the maternal side, are an old and somewhat famous family. 
Early in the 14th Century, Henry BuUman, by occupation a miner, 
lived in the Mendippe Hills, in Somersetshire, England. King Ed- 
Ward III., being on his way to embark for France, was at an oppor- 
tune moment, ])rovided by Bullman with an escort, which piloted 



74 

the Kiug safely to the point of embarkation. In ackuowledgemeut 
of this Eojal service, the monarch cfmferred on Bullman the sur- 
name and armorial bearings of " Miner," intending thereby to 
honor Bullraan's occupation, by giving the latter the name of his 
trade. The Miners, in time, became a wealthy and aristocratic 
family. Thomas Miner, a descendant of Henry, came over with 
Wiuthrop's Companv to the Pequot Country, in Connecticut, and 
settled there, in 1646. After a prominent and active life in Con- 
necticut, he died in 1690, aged eighty-three. He is said to have 
been the first American ancestor of all bearing the name of Miner, 
in this country, including the mother of Barentha York. He had a 
son, Captain John Miner, who settled and died at Woodbufy, Conn. 
The latter had a daughter Grace, born September 20, 1670, who 
married about 1690, Samuel Grant, Jr., of Windsor, Conn., from 
whom was descended General U. S. Grant. 

Barentha York, was a member of the Presbyterian Church at 
Berean, two miles from Cleves, Hamilton County, Ohio, on the 
West side of the Great Miami River, in the Cemetery connected 
Avith which her ashes rest. 

(72) SALMON BUCK, b. May 19, 1766, d. Aug. 10, 1851, m. 
March 5, 1794, Urana Beecher (daughter of Eleazer Beecher and 
Elsie Bristol), b. in 1763, d. Dec. 9, 1836. He was a Jarmer, resid- 
ing four miles Northwest of New Milford, Litchfield County, 
Conn. 

Salmon Buck spent his days, until his marriaga on his father's 
farm, on Lono; Mountain. He seems to have assumed the care of 
his parents and sisters. To him his father devises the old home- 
stead and two acres of land adjoining it, in addition to other lands, 
which he had previcnisly conveyed to him by deed. This devise 
he charged with the duty of providing a home for, and taking care 
of his daughters, Ruth and Jerusha, a duty which the sou faith- 
fully performed. With him, Ruth made her home much of the 
time. 

He was a good citizen, a man of strict integrity and uprightness 
of character, kind and obliging to all. Oa the old homestead, he

(73) HANNAH BUCK, b. May 15, 1768, d. May 27, 1853, m. Feb. 
22, 1789, Jared Turrell, b. Oct. 18, 1762, d. Sept. 27 1833. Husband 
was a farmer, residing near Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio. 

Jared Turrill was by occupation a farmer, although he had 
learned the trades of tanner and harnessmaker. He was active in 
town and religious affairs. He was a communicant and a pew holder 
in the New Milford Congregational Church, where for thirty years 
of his married life, lie resided with his family. 

As to my grandfather, Jared Turrill," says Prof. M. S. Turrill, 
" I knew but very little about him. He was always represented to 
" me as a very hard working man, a shoemaker by trade, serving a 
" seven years' apprenticeship; tried to cultivate for a farm, a strong 
" side-hill near New Preston, in Litchfield County, Connecticut; in 
" 1818, came with his family to Ohio, over the AUeghanies by wagon, 
" and down the Ohio Biver from Pittsburg to Cincinnati in a flat 
" boat ; purch.ised eighty acres of land six miles from Cincinnati, 
" in Columbia Township, Hamilton County, on Avliich he lived 
" about fifteen years until his death. He was in religion a Congre- 
" gationalist in the last ; and a Presbyterian in Ohio ; a consistent 
" Christian, and left behind that of which his descemlants are ever 
" proud, a good name through his entire life. 

" My grandmother, Hannah Turrill, will be ever present in my 
" memory. She lived after my grandfather's death, in m}^ father's 
" famil}^ and I knew her intimately from the time I knew any one, 
" until my twenty-fourth year, wlien she died. I remember her oc- 
" cupying a certain chair in the chimney corner, working indus- 
" trously at her knitting, even when her hearing was weakened by 
" age, her eyesight dimmed with blindness, and her fingers almost 
" benumbed. She mad-^ all children her warm friends, telling us 
" often of many scenes that transpired in her youth, of her brother 
" who served in the Revolutionary War, and the bright blue uniform 
" he wore, of her Uncle Roger Sherman in the Continental Con- 
" gress, how he us-^il to come to her father's Thanksgiving days, 
" and always brought her a present ; of other brothers and sisters 

" who, 

" Grew in bf-aiitv side b_v side, 

" Who tilled our home with glee. 
" Whose graves are severed far and wide 

•• By mountain, stream, aud sea." 



76 

"Aud oil! liow it pleased me, and ber also, the year before lier 
" death, when I visited her early home on Long Mountain, Conuec- 
" ticut; for of the various gifts I brought home to her Avere some 
" apples from trees whose fruit she had enjoyed, and whose flavor 
" even then, she well remembered, thus reviving vividly the memo- 
'' ries of her childhood, and recalling reminiscences of her youth, 
" her home, and the orchard's delicious fruits. 

" One bright spring day, when the breezes were loaded with 
"balmy perfume, from the fragrant roses and wild wood flowers, — 
"when the forests were glassy with new-come verdure, and the 
" grass and grain-buds swelling and raising their tapering like fin- 
"gers heavenward, we laid our grandmother away in her last repose, 
"in the beautiful hill-crowned cemetary uf Pleasant Ridge, and 
"within the shadow of the church where she long worshiped. 

" On her monument are the words, selected previously by her, and 
" expressive of her gratitude to God. ' Return unto thy rest, O my 
"soul, for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee.' 

"Around the lattice that encloses that sacred spot, are the rose 
'•and eglantine; and their fragrance and sweetness are fit emblems 
" of her purity and loveliness of character. Many kind thoughts, 
" many cheerful smiles, many glorious pictures of the past are mine ; 
"but none, no, none are brighter, than my childhood memories of 
" thee, my dearest grandmother. 

Hannah Buck w^as gifted with intelligence and stmnd common 
sense, a keen judgment of human nature and the fitness 
of things, coupled with a cheerful lively disposition made 
her popular in the society in which she moved. Her ad- 
vice was valued and her ojunious respected, by all who 
had the pleasure of her acquaintance. She was, while in Connecti- 
cut, a member of the First Congregational Church, at New Milford. 
During her latter years, she was a communicant of tlie Presbyterian 
Church. Her memory is honored by a numerous and respectable 
host of descendants. Her husband, Jared Tuirdl, was a brother of 
John Turrill, the husband of her sister Elizabeth. As I have said, 
his father Caleb Turrill, was of honorable descent and married 
Abagail Bassett. I should add, that x^bagail Bassett was a descend- 
ant of Robert Bassett, one of the French Huegonot families, that 
fled from Picardy, and settled in Connecticut in the first half of the 
17th Century. This Robert, was the progenitor of a most remark- 
able family of eleven boys and three girls, a total of fourteen. Their 



77 

names, according to Savage, were Enoch, Caleb, Isaac, Stephen, 
John, Joel, Job, Jared, Benjamin, Doctor and Major and Abagail, 
Mehitable and Freelove. 

They may be justly called a fighting family, surely they cannot 
be twitted with lack of Patriotism. 

Nearly all of these boys, bore arms in defence of the mother coun- 
try, against France or against the mother country for independ- 
ence. Stephen enlisted under Abercrombie at the age of fifteen, 
and participated in the Canadian struggle. Later, he served in 
Revolutionary war under Washington. It is said that he witnessed 
the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown, and died in Vermont aged 
101. John was likewise in the war, on th^ continental side, and 
suffered long as a prisoner in the terrible Jersey prisonship, at 
New York. Doctor was a seventh son, and died unmarried at the 
age of 21. Benjamin was drowned while fishing in the Housatonic 
Falls. Very few of theii' descendants are left, in New England. 
Thev are scattered over the middle and Western States.

sippi River. In the summer of 1841, he started on an expedition to 
the Mississippi, to explore this wreck. He called on his sisters in

cess. He, however, fell sick of a fever, brought on by exposure, 
and died at Alton, Ills., without having put his scheme into effect. 
(Others of his relatives say he was drowned in the Mississippi 
River.) He was a tall, fine looking man, and endowed with great

Cody, bin 1824. Husband is a lawyer, xlddress Napierville, DaPage 
Coujty, Ills. A writer in the weekly magazine of Chicago in its 
issue of April 12, 1884, thus speaks of him : — 

" When we find a man whom office and honors persistently seek, 
" we may be sure he is lifted by some notable qualities, above his 
" fellow men. When he is the spontaneous and unanimous choice 
" of a large body of citizens, who knew him only by reputation, 
•' and draws his support for positions of trust and responsibility 
" from without, and beyond all party lines, we may be certain that 
" he possesses conspicuous abilities, which merit confidence and ad- 
" miration, for, in their recognition of genuine worth, the masses of 
" the people are rarely wrong. Again, Avhen we find him perempto- 
" rily declining nominations for high places, tendered by acclama- 
" tion and equivalent to election, we feel ourselves in the presence 
" of a remarkable character, and one which stands out in bold 
" relief, against the background of an office-greedy age. Such a 
" man is an honor to his community ; his life is a lesson to the 
" young, and his success is an incentive to honorable ambition. 
" Such a man is Judge Hiram H. Cody, an outline sketch of whose 



no 

" career we now present with pleasure to our readers. He wasboru 
" in 1824 ill Oneida County, New York, where his ancestors were 
" among the pioneer settlers, his grandfather having been a soldier 
" of the revolution. His parents, people of culture, unusual in 
" that day, designed him early for the law, and educated him with 
" this object ever in view. In 1843, however, his father came to 
" Kendall Connty in this State, and a year later settled at Blooming - 
" dale in Du Page County. Four years afterward, the subject of 
" our sketch was chosen Clerk of the County Commissioner's Court 
" of his county, and removed to Naperville, where upon the adop- 
" tion of the constitution of '48 he was nominated by acclamation 
" and elected the first County Clerk of his county, an office he held 
" for six years. In the meantime, however, he had been admitted 
" to the bar, and declining renomination devoted himself to his 
" profession. Though a Democrat in politics, he has been indebted 
" to his party vote for no other office, and at the outbreak of the war 
" was one of the most ardent union men in the State, his energy 
" and eloquent appeals having contributed very largely to the bril- 
" liant war record of Da Page County. 

" In 1861, in a convention embracing all parties, he was nomin- 
" ated for County Judge, and elected by an almost unanimous vote. 
" In 1869 he was chosen delegate to the constitutional convention 
" by a majority of n^ irly two hundred ; though his opponent was 
" one of the most popular E.3 publicans, in a county where the 
" Democratic minority was singularly small. In this body he was 
" chairman of the most popular committee on revision and adjnst- 
" ment, making his report at the hour of final adjournment, aprompt- 
" itude which secured his committee the only unanimous vote of 
" thanks given during the session. In 1874 Judge S. Wilcox of the 
" Fourth Judicial Circuit then composed of Kane, Du Page and 
" Kendall Counties resigned his office, and Judge Cody was elected 
" as his successor, and elected by the largest m;ijority ever given in 
" the circuit, each town in his own county giving him anoverwhelm- 
" ing vote. Indeetl the three towns where he was best known poll- 
" ing for him all bu.t fourteen out of a possible ten hundred and 
" twenty-one l)allots. 

" In 1877, however, three other Kepublican counties were united 
" with the Fourth, to make the Twelfth Judicial Circuit, and in the 
" party contest which followed. Judge Cody was not elected, though 
" he reduced his opponent's majority from twelve to about two thou- 



Ill 

" sand votes. He now became a member of the firm of Cary, Cody 
" & Gary, doing business in this city, though retaining his residence 
" in Napierville, a firm which stands among the foremost in Chi- 
" cago. Since then he has, regardless of his protest and continued 
" refusal to accept office, been nominated for State Senator, and 
" twice for Congress ; but his professional engagements and the in- 
" terests confided to his care were so numerous as to all but pre- 
" elude the possibility of an acceptance. 

"Asa Judge, he was without pi-ejudice, careful, deliberate and 
" correct, eighty per cent, of his appealed decisions having been af- 
" firmed by the higher courts. As a lawyer, he is noted for his rare 
" abilities, skill and faithfulness to his clients, and the eloquence 
" and earnest sincerity which rendered hi in a most effective advo- 
" cate. As a citizen he has been ever loyal, outspoken in his con- 
*' victions, and zealous in his support of honest men and measures. 
" while as a man he is courteous, affaole, warm-h(^arted, sympa- 
" thetic and uui-elfish, with a contempt of all shame and an un- 
" swerving ambition to do the right for its own sake."

buried in the Cemetery at Gaylordsville, Coun. After his marriage 
he remained on his father's homestead, and became a valuable citi- 
zen of New Milford. That he was greatly loved and respected, is 
evidenced by the fact, that when sliortiy after his father's death, 
his house and out-buildings were totally consumed by lire, his 
neighbors made up the loss to him by replacing the buildings. He 
was a thorough business man, full of energy and ambition. Late in 
life he engaged largely in speculation in Western lands, becoming 
thereby wealthy ; but the Civil War coming on, he was caught in 
the vortex of ruin caused by the unsettling of values, and thereby 
his fortune was greatly impaired. Before he could extricate him- 
self, he sickened and died. Hewas liberal to the poor, and a consis- 
tent christian ; faithful to the support of the Congregational Church , 
of which he was an honored member. His wife was likewise in 
every sense a true Christian lady.

the qualities of her mother, particularly a robust constitution. Her 
son, Minot S., tlius spoke of her: "She has seldom needed a phy- 
" sician. Possessed of untiring energy and iudnstry, she has always 
" found pleasure iu laboring for others. At the age of 27 she be- 
" came a member of the Congregational Church of New Milford, and 
" has seldom been absent from its services. She lives with her sou 
" Minot S., and is at'the age of 85 (she is now 93), in full possession

" comfort in reading. Her memory of events that transpired in the 
" early part of the century is good.

the time of her marriage, resided with her parents at New Lisbon,

of New Lisbon, N. Y., b. Aug. 1, 1797, d. at Elba, N. Y., July 18, 
1878. He was by occupation a farmer. In 1810, at the age of 
nineteen, he purchased the farm at Elba, N. Y., upon which he 
spent the remainder of his days, nearly seventy years. In early life 
he was connected with the Baptist Church; and though he subse- 
quently withdrew from it, he alwajs lived a Christian life, and^was 
highly respected in the commiiuity around him. One of his Sons 
thus testifies to the value of his home influence : "Father's family 
" were well brought up, and have each followed the straight and 
" narrow path." 

The first coat he ever wore was made for him by his grandmother 
Elizabeth (Sherman) Buck, a sister of Roger Sherman, when he 
was two years (dd ; and he presented it to his grandson, Elijah 
Carhart, when the latter was two years old. This interesting relict 
is still in the possession of this grandson at Pontiac, Mich.

2, 1838. He m. (2) June 8, 1842, Margaret Maria Wells (daughter 
of Samuel and Catherine (Myer) Wells), b. at Saugerties, Ulster 
County, N. Y. She still survives her husband at Glasco, Ulster 
County, N. Y. His early life, like that of his brother Elijah, was 
spent upon his father's farm, but his tastes were literar}^ rather than 
agricultural. For a Avhile he studied law ; then he turned his atten- 
tion towards the medical profession. But only for a season. On 
making a public profession of Christ, he thenceforth gave himself 
wholly to the work of the ministry. He was 24 years of age when he 
took this step ; though lie always thought that he might have been 
converted wlien nine years old. He was licensed to preach in Feb}^ 
1820, by the Union Congregational Association at Exeter, N. Y. 
Two years later this Association dissolved; and he became con- 
nected with the Presbytery of Otsego. His successive pastoral 
charges were at Worcester (supply) Knox, Cairo, Caatsbaau (suj)plv) 
Hunter, Maiden and Jewett, all in the State of New York, and all 
marked more or less by revivals. In 1830 at Cairo, between seventy 
and eighty were hopefully converted. Perhaps his best work was 
in the Church of Jewett, to which he ministered twent^'-four years, 
and to which place, his remains were brought, for burial. He 
passeil through many severe trials. In every place wliere he so- 
journed, save one, he was called to bury his dead. But he "walked 
with God." Few spent so much time in secret prayer, or labored 
to stimulate others to that privilege. In his diary, which he kept 
nearly all his life, he writes (Jan. 17, 1847), " I remain on my knees 
" from forty to seventy minutes." His last entry in that diary is, 
" Mv full assurance of hope still continues, absent from the bodv, I 
" shall be present with the Lord." His memory is cherished, not 
oulv in the churches that enjoyed his services, but in the regions 
beyond. He preached fifty years ; and after his formal resignation 
of the pastoral office, he still labored, as far as progressing infir- 
mities allowed. His estimate can best be expressed in the words 
of the late Prof. Joseph x\lden, D.D.L.L.D., uttered a short time 
before his own decease. " A better man never lived." He received 
the honorary degree of A.M. from Williams' College in 1836. 

(694) MAMA BUCK, b. Aug. 12, 1797, d. at New Lisbon, N. Y., 
Feb. 15, 1879, unm. She occupied the homestead nearly a quarter 



142 

of a century after lier mother's death. She was an active member 
of the Congregational Church and took a deep interest in educational 
and benevolent works. A large part of her property was given to 
Missionary, Bible and Tract Societies.

Todd); b. at Northampton, Mass., March 18, 1805. She d. August 
28, 1887, at her daughter's, at New Lisb(m, Otsego County, N. Y. 
Homer Curtis Buck's entire life was spent on the farm where he 
was born, where he possessed the respect and confidence of all his 
neighbors, from childhood up. A fellow townsman, Benj. C. Gard- 
ner, Esq., says, " He was gifted by nature with a strong retentive 
" min:l, whicli he cultivated by constant application, and which 
" preeminently fitted him to be a leader in the society in which he 
" lived. His counsel and advice were sought and rvispected by his 
" neighbors. He was six times elected Justice of the Peace, and 
" twice Justice of Sessions; and so correct was his judgment, that 
" his decisions were never reversed in a higher Ccnirt." At an 
early age, he became a member of the Congregational Church, 
and at once took a prominent position. During many years he was 
the leader of the choir, for which his enthusiastic fondness for mu- 
sic well qualified him. He was active m the Sabbath School, and 
for a long time was its superintendent. A large concourse of citi- 
zens, for miles around, gathered at his funeral, thus testifying to 
his worth, and signifying that a great loss, almost irreparable, had 
befallen the Church and the community.

found room at the Soldier's Home, and had just retired, when they 
saw the Sultana in flames, drifting down the river, and heard the 
cries of their poor comrades for help, little of which could be ex- 
tended, as the current was so rapid. Over one thousand perished. 
He had seen death in almost every form, death by starvation more 
horrible than he cculd tell ; but nothing ever so impressed him as

Laura Buck (702) and Marvin Salter have 2 clin. both b. at Lyons 
Mich., to wit :— 

(736) CHARLES HENRY SALTER, b. Nov. 29, 1839; m. Sept. 
17, 1867, Frances Isabel Hanscoin. b, at Detroit, Mich., March 10, 
1848, (daughter of Marvin and Elizabeth J. Hanscom of Sheboygan, 
Wis.) She is a communicant of St. Paul's Episcopal Church at 
Detroit, whero all the family attend service. Address, No. Ill Ab- 
bott Street, Detroit, Mich. In early life Mr. Salter entered his 
father's store at Detroit, and at the age of twenty, he with a i:)artner 
puichased the business. One year later when the Civil War burst 
upon the Country, he hastily sold his interest, and on April 19, 1861, 
enlists'l wifcli tlis " Dc^troit Light Ga.irds " of which he was 
a member. His Company went out as Company A, 1st. 
Mich. Volunteer Infantry, and his Ragimeut was the first 
Western Pvegiment that reached AYashiugton, arriving May 16, 
1861, and being cordially welcomed by President Lincoln. 

On the 24th before daylight they crossed Long Bridge, drove 
in the Confederate pickets and rapidly marched upon Alexandria, 



150 

Va., which they took having captured a troop of 150 rebel cavalry 
on the waj'. In the first battle of Bull Run the regiment lost nine 
officers, including Col. O. B. Wilcox, and one hundred and eight 
men. This heavy loss was due to the fact that the regiment had 
penetrated farther into the rebel lines than any other Union force, 
and were, for a time, unable to extricate themselves. Mr. Salter 
having served a three months enlistment, was mustered out August 
7, 1861, and onl}' two days later, received a comaiission as 2d Lieu- 
tenant in Col. Stockton's Begimeut, afterwards known as the 16th 
Michigan Eegiment of Infantry. He was with McClellan on the 
Peninsula, shared in the siege of Yorktovvu, participated in the 
brilliant engagement at Hanover, C. H.,and in the sanguinary battle 
at Gaines Mills, where liis regiment lost eleven officers and three 
hundred and nine men. Their retreat from Richmond was marked 
by fighting eA-ery day, ending with the battle of Malvern Hill. 

Under General Pope, Lieutenant Salter fought at Second Bull 
Run, in which his division made a desperate attack upon " Stone- 
wall Jackson's " corps, but was driven back with great loss. On the 
march to repel the rebel invasion of Maryland, he took part in the 
battle of Antietara. He was now a First Lieutenant, and as 
such was engaged in the battles of Fredericksburgh, Chan- 
cellorsville and Middleburgh, where his brigade defeated a 
large force of rebel cavalry. They arrived after a night'-s march at 
Gettysburgh, the morning of July 2, and were ordered in great haste 
to meet Longstreet's CfU'ps. As Lieutenant Salter's regiment was 
in the advance, they were the first to reach Round Top Hill, where 
a fierce hand to hand struggle ensued, extending from the rocks on 
the top of the hill, to the ravine below. While thus engaged, a bat- 
tery took ]3ossession on the hill, and firing over their heads, gave 
them effective assistance. Thus they succeeded in driving back the 
rebel hordes, and holding their positiou all day, though in close 
musket shot to tiie enemy; and they remained orj the front line un- 
til the fifth of July, when Lee's army retreating they started in pur- 
suit. 

Lieut. Salter was later in the battles of Wapping Heights, 
Brandy and Bristow Stations, in the latter of which six pieces of 
artillery and eleven hundred prisoners were captured from an at- 
tacking force. Near Rappauhannock Station, two forts and a long 
line of breast works, were stormed and eight pieces of c;unnon and 
twent5^-two hundred prisoners captured. All so quickl}- done that 
the 16th Mich, lost only three men wounded. 



151 

The entire regiment, or wliat was left of it having enlisted for an- 
other three years, and being recruited (Lieut. Salter, now a Cap- 
tain), entered the campaign under Grant, participated in the terri- 
ble battles of the Wilderness, Laurel Hill, Spottsylvania, North 
Auna, Tolopotomy Creek, Magnolia Swamp and Bethesda Church, 
besides being engaged in continual skirmishes every day and many 
nights. The regiment arrived near Petersburgh, June 17, 1864, and 
took part in the fight of that day, the day after, aud in the mine ex- 
plosion afi'air of Jul}' 30, being under fire almost continually. Cap- 
tain S^dter's corps being relieved from duty in the trenches, pro- 
ceeded to the Weldon Railroad, and after a desperate struggle cap- 
tured the position and held it against four days fighting to recover 
it. About this time he was appointed on the staff of the Colonel 
commanding brigade, as Inspector General, in which capacity he 
was serving when he was relieved at the battle of Prebles Farm, 
Sept. 30, for the purpose of taking the command of his regiment, 
being then the ranking officer of that command. In the charge 
upon a fort aiid lines of earthworks from riglit to left of it, over an 
open space of more tlian half a mile, while on all sides men were 
falling, Major Partridge was severely wounded in the head and 
throat. The first man to mount the works was the Colonel of the 
16th Michigan, and he, while waving his sword to his men 
to come on, was shot dead aud fell back into the ditch. 
Captain Salter was close to him, and being next in rank, 
led the regiment, scaled the works, and pressing to the rear of the 
fort, captured it and the garrison. A pitched battle was fought, but 
the enemy, reinforceil with fresh troops, were unable to recover one 
inch of the ])osition. The Union loss was verv great, especially in 
officers. Night found a major in command of the brigade and a 
captain in command of every regiment. On recommendation of 
Gen. Griffin, Division Commander, Capt. Salter was promoted to be 
brevet major "for gallant and distinguishsl services." He remained 
in command of the regiment until Jan. 15, 1865, meanwhile engaging 
in the battle of Hatchers llim and in several raids on the Waldoa 
Railroad. When Col. Partridge (the former major), healed of his 
Avounds, resumed command, Major Salter was mustered out, having 
been in the army three years and nine UKmths. He received from 
CoL B. F. Partridge " congratulations and thanks for having so nobly 
" and succes^'fully performed his duties during his perilous term of 
" service, and for hiving b^en connected with an organization which 



152 

" lias with honor to itself participated iu the following named battles," 
no less than thirty-eight being euu '.unrated, which d > uotinclude those 
in which he was engiged during his three months' service. Re- 
turning borne he resumed business, from which he retired in com- 
fortable circumstances in Nov., 1SS2, and purchased the place No. 
Ill Abbott street, Detroit, where he now resides. He is treasurer 
of Fairbank's Post, No. 17, G. A. R., and a member of the Light 
Guard, Veteran Corps, of Detroit.

Sixth Geneeation. 

ini/id)!} Slierman Buck (71), and Borenf/ia Yorkhave had thirteen 
chn. : — - 

Tliey all inherited, in a remarkable degree, the hardihood and 
perseverance of their New England ancestors. They were brought 
up to haV)its of untiring industry and rigid economy. The sons 
were inured to the arduous labors and exposures of farmer fron- 
tiersmen, while the daughters were schooled in the multifarious and 
perplexing duties of the household. The latter did not consider it 



158 

beneath tlie diguity of womanhood to handle the flax-wheel and the 
loom indoors, and the axe and hoe outdoors. In short, they were 
taught to be he]-p-meets and not help-eats, simply. The great west 
Avas then no try sting place for the idler and the spendthrift. * All 
were compelled to work or perish. The subsequent and almost 
unexceptional success in life, of these thirteen children, should 
afford food for pleasant thought, to their numerous decendants- 
It indicates how effective, correct home teachings and parental 
example are in building up substantial character. These thirteen 
children were as follows : 

(801) AMOS YORK BUCK, b. at Wyalusing, Pa., Feby. 28, 1788; 
d. at Enfield Centre, N. Y., Oct. 13, 1853; m. May 7, 1812, Susanna 
Lovell, (dr. of Asahel Lovell, and Hannah Bj^ram, b. in Sussex 
County, N. J., July 11, 1789, d. at EnfieLl Centre, N. Y., Aug. 
17, 1852. Immediately upon his marriage, he bought and located 
on a farm near what is now Steamburgh, Schuyler County, N. Y., 
where he worked at clearing up laud until about 1821, when, not 
liking the localit}', he sold out and removed to Updyke's Settlement, 
a hamlet in Tompkins County, N. Y., about twa miles northwest of 
Enfield Centre. Here he purchased about sixty acres of unimproyed 
land, adjoining lands of his father-in-law, which he subsequentlj^ 
traded for a farm in Venango County, Pa. He did not, however, 
leave Tompkins Count}^ but purchased from his father-in-law, 
Asahel Lovell, a tract adjoining a tract owned b}^ his wife, on which 
he built a log hut and industriously set to work. The task of denn- 
ing this land was Herculean, as it was heavily timbered with white 
pine, the stumps of which required years of persistent effort to dis- 
lodge, and tilling the soil between which was extremely laborious. 
The struggle was enough to shatter the strongest constitution, and 
the wonder in our day is, that men could endure so miich exhaustive 
toil. But an iron will and perseverance in the end brought success. 
In a few years the farm was cleared, fenced and paid for and good 
buildings erected. Here Mr. Buck and his family lived until his 
premature de;itij, his constitution having broken down under hard 
and constant labor. Fur honesty, no man in the conimuity stood 
higher. Always depracating debt, he avoided it as one will avoid 
putting his hand in the fire. He detested profanity and untruthful- 
ness, pitying those who were slaves to either. In stature he was of 
medium height and compactl}^ built. His step was quick and 
elastic. He read much, particularl}' in his later years. He was 



159 

always the friend and patron of education. In politics lie held to the 
then Democratic faith, but he never could have been other than a 
strong Unionist. He was a man of firmness, good judgment and 
spT)tless integrity ; a man who never meddled in social or political 
disputes, a kind husband and father and an exemplary Christian, 
who died respected by all who knew him. His wife, Susanna 
Lovell, was one of eleven children of ])arents of Scotch descent, w^ho 
had emigrated from New Jersey to Central N. Y. She was a quiet, 
geiitle, amiable woman, whose many virtues and patient devotion to 
the welfare of her family and friends, will ever be fondly cherished 
by such of her posterity as had the good fortune to know her. 
Both were for many years members of the Presbyterian Church at 
Meckenlburgh, N. Y., where they attended service regularly. Their 
remains rest side by side in the cemetery of the Old Presbyterian 
Church at Enfield Centre, N. Y. 

(802) JAMES BUCK, b. at Wyalusing, Pa., Jan. 27, 1790 ; d. at 
Patriot, Ind., Sept. 7, 1857 ; m. Nov. 6, 1820, Margaret Craig, (widow 
of William Graham), b. in Bucks County, Pa., October 31, 1795; d. 
at Patriot, Ind., May 30, 1883. James Buck spent the years of his 
minority on his father's farm in (then) Seneca County, N. Y. He 
had just ])assed his 21st year when the war of 1812 broke out. He 
did not wait to be drafted but enlisted at once, and under General 
Scott, ])articipated in many battles, among which was that of 
Lundy's Lane. Later he took a hand in Indiarf fighting under 
General " Tippecanoe " Harrison. 

On the termination of the struggle, he bought and settled on a 
part of the Western domain, then under the control of Congress, 
on Bryant's Creek, in Switzerland County, Indiana, where he fol- 
lowed farming until his sudden death from sunstroke. By nature, 
he was stern, though quiet and un:issnming. Hc> was temperate 
and industrious in his habits, kind in his intercourse with his family 
and neighb(n-s, a friend of education, ;ind given to charitable deeds. 
His willow, Margaret Craig, died at the age of 87. She possessed 
a sound mind in a sound body. She never saw a sick day, 
and died of old age. In 1811, she married W^illiain Graham, 
who died soon after, and by whom she had a daughter named 
Mary Ann, who grew to womanhood and married. The an- 
cestors of Margaret Craig were noted for longevity. Her father, 
born in Londonnery County, Ireland, of Irish parentage, and her 
mother, born in County Antrim, Ireland, of Scotch parentage, both 
died at the advanced age of 93.

(803) SHEKMAN AHOLIAB BUCK, b. at Wyalusiiig, Pa., 
May 13, 1791 ; d. iii Van Baren County, Iowa, May 10, 1862 ; m. in 
1829, Urana Hicks, b. in Vermont, June 10, 1808 ; d. in Keokuk 
County, Iowa, Nov. 17, 1872. Sherman A. Buck was m. in his 28tli 
year, up to which time be bad led a quiet but busy life, assisting 
his father and brothers to clear up farms in New York and 
Ohio. He remained in Indiana until 1816, when, tempted by 
glowing frontier reports, he "pulled up" and removed with 
his family to Heury County, Iowa. His 3'oungest son, Asaph, 
was then bnt two years old. He purchased a farm in Henry 
County, and remained on it till 1861, when he again " pulled up " 
and removed to Van Buren County, Iowa. Here he purchased 
a moderate sized farm, of good land, and set about improving it, but 
died the year following. This last removal, was to please his sons, 
who now being quite large, desired more land to occupy their time 
and strength. For some years, he had been a cripple, unable to do 
much hard work. The management of the farm fell to his son 
Asaph. Mr. Buck was in many respects, a peculiar man. He could 
not brook debt, and his promptnsss to cancel obligations, was a 
matter of comment among his neighbors. Unfortunatel}-, he was 
timid or indifferent when others owed him, and used often to say 
that he would rather loose an honest debt, owing him, than ask for 
it. This trait of character, although sometimes a virtue, is. not con- 
dusive to the affin;inment of wealth, and he therefore did not accu- 
mulate a fortune, though he had enough for comfort and indepen- 
dence. For a while after reaching Iowa, he followed boatiao- oa the 
rivers. He was temperate in diet, speech and manners, kind in 
his intercourse with men, and generous to a fault; he never held 
political office. He was proud of the family name, and desired 
particularly to see his sons grow up useful and influential 
members of societ}'. His wife Uiana Hicks, of English de- 
scent, was more a matter of fact woman. She was ambitious 
to attain property, and careful to save it — ^uot for the sake 
of show, but for the coniforts to be realized from, and the 
good to be done with it. After her husband's death, she was called 
to undergo the trying ordeal of seeing all her sons march to join 
the Union army. Her (mly remark was, "It is hard to see them all 
" go, but I am glad to know that none of them are disposed to 
" shirk their duty," — a remark worthy of a truly patriotic Ameri- 
can mother. In religious faith, they both adhered to Universalism.

His remains rest iu a private burying ground, at Utica, Van Bureu 
County, Iowa. Her's rest at Keokuk, Iowa. 

(804) WILLIAM MINER BUCK, b. at Wyalusing, Pa., March 
12, 1793; d. in Fayette County, Ind., August 3, 1834; m. 1817, 
Ellen Fairchild Thomas (daughter of Elder Miner Thomas, a 
prominent Baptist minister), b. May 28, 1797; d. Sept. 28, 1863. 
William Miner Buck removed with his father to Ohio, and thence 
to Indiana (Fayette County), where he followed the occupation of a 
farmer, until his sudden death, from Asiatic cholera. He was a 
man of stern, but quiet and peaceful disposition, strictly honest and 
just in all his dealings with his fellow men. Although possessed 
of but an ordinary common school education, he was a great reader 
and a deep thinker, — a man of more than ordinary intelligence, who 
would have made a mark in the Avorld, had opportunities been 
thrown in his way. He never aspired to, or held office, but died 
greatly loved and respected. His wife was also a woman of intelli- 
gence, and of a pleasant, agreeable disposition. Their eldest son 
says of his parents: " The}^ were such as any one might be proud 
of." Their remains rest in Fayette County, Ind., where they were 
both members of the Baptist Church. 

(805) HARMON CAMP BUCK, b. near Trumansburgh, N. Y., 
March 7, 1795; d. at Leroy, Ills., Feb. 8, 1859; m. (1) March 16, 1820, 
Sarah Craig, b. Oct. 4, 1801; d. Aug. 8, 1829; ra. (2) Jan. 21, 1830, 
Lusena King, b. Jan. 1, 1811; d. Nov. 17, 1843, m. (3) Dec. 31, 1843, 
Sarah R. Brown, b. Sept. 28, 1812; d. Feb. 14, 1846; m. (4) Nov. 12, 
1846, Louisa Dewfield (date of her birth unknown). Widow's ad- 
dress is Leroy, McLean County, Ills. Harmon Camp Buck re- 
mained with his father until 13 years of age, when expressing a de- 
sire to learn a trade, his father apprenticed him to a blacksmith, 
with whom he remained until he was 21. He received, iu addition 
to his wages, a horse, saddle and suit of clothes. After selling the 
horse and saddle for $36.00 he started west to seek a fortune, with 
a bundle strapped to his back. He did not find the expected for- 
tune. After wandering for three years without home or friends, he 
became sick and unable to proceed on his journey. He was kindly 
cared for, by one of the fiontiersmen, until he Avas able to go on; 
and then travelling, until he was again exhausted, he stopped at 
a house and requested a night's lodging. The lady of the house, at 
first, refused, but noticing his forlorn and feeble condition, finally 
consented to grant his request. In conversation with this lady that 



162 

niglit, he discovered that she was his mother, whom he had not seen in 
13 years, his parents having in the meantime, without his knowledge, 
removed from N. Y. to Ohio. He remained with his parents until 
his marriage with Miss Craig, when he removed to Connersville, 
Ind., and tlience to Harrisburgh, where his first wife died ; he then 
removed to Richmond, Ind., where he married Lusena King and where 
six of his children were born. In 1838, he removed to Lerov, Ills., 
where his second wife died, leaving eight small chn. He followed farm- 
ing after his unsuccessful fortune hunt. His lemains rest by those of 
his second wife, Lucena, in the Oak Grove ceraeterv at Leroy, Ills. 

(806) LUCRETIA YORK BUCK, b. near Trumansburgh, N. 
Y., April 4, 1879 ; d. at Cleves, Ohio, Sept., 1839; m. May 7, 1823 
John D. Matson, b. at Cleves, Ohio., May 26, 1796; d. at Cleves,' 
Ohio, Jan}^ 17, 1876. Lucretia York Buck possessed in a large de- 
gree those estimable qualities of head and heart which constitute a 
truly lovable wife, mother and neiglibor. He liusband, John D. 
Matson, was of honorable English lineage; his father was among 
the most active and respected citizens of Oliio, having hekl the of- 
fice of Justice of the Peace there in 1812. The son John D. was a 
man of energy, perseverance and strict integrity, greatly respected 
by his neighbors who elected him Justice of the Peace for Hamilton 
County in 1864 and 1867. During the war he was several time 
nominated for office without his consent, but, being an ujiswerving 
Democrat, was defeated in a strong Republican district. He never 
aspired to political office. He was a great reader and well informed 
on all tlie questions of the day. By industry and ecouomy he ac- 
cumulated land rapidly and before his death gave to his children 
1200 acres besides town lots and other valuable property at Cleves. 
Though not a churchgoer or creed server, he Avas a man of convic- 
tions on religious subjects and gave liberally to religious and edu- 
cational objects. In 1867 he deeded the Board of Education of 
Miami Township, Hamilton County, a tract of land for school pur- 
poses on condition that the citizens of the neighborhood should 
have the right to hold religious or political meetings in the buildings 
to be erected thereon. He was temperate in his habits and physi- 
cally strong. About a year before his death his eyesight almost 
completely failed him. He died of old age and was buried beside 
his wife and parents in the Matson burial ground, 100 yards from 
his old home at Cleves, Ohio. 

(807) HOMER BUCK; b. near Trumansburgh, N. Y., May 8, 



163 

1799 ; d. at Wapella, lUis., Nov. 22, 1878 ; m. Feby. 27, 1823, Mary 
Jeffrey (dr. of William and Ruth Jeffrey) ; b. in Monmouth County, 
N. J., Nov. 6, 1805 ; Homer Buck followed farming until eighteen 
years of age, when he learned the trade of a tanner. Having married 
in 1823, he plied his trade industriously in Fayette County, Ind. 
Here he pursed his calling until 1813, when having saved some money 
he purchased a farm near Wapella in Dewitt County, on which he re- 
sided and pursued farming sucessfully until his death. His wife, Mary 
Jerffey emigrated with her parents from New Jersey to New York in 
1806, when she was six months old. When fifteen years of age she 
removed with her parents, to Fayette County, Indiana, where three 
years later, she Avas joined in wedlock to Homer Buck by Rev. Mr. 
Thomas, a prominent Baptist clergyman. Both were respected 
and loved by a large circle of friends and neighbors. They early 
joined the Presbyterian Church at Wapella, in which Homer re- 
mained an active member until his deatli, and was for many years 
a leading elder. Although a stiff Presbyterian, Homer took the 
liberal side of all the great questions of the day. He and his 
family were strong Republicans and Unionists, two of the sons 
giving their lives as a sacrifice on tlie altar of their country. Mary 
(Jeffery) Buck still survives her honored husband, wearing lightly 
the burthens of her more than four score years of earthly pilgrimage. 
(808) HIRAM BUCK, b. near Trumansburgh, N. Y., March 20, 
1801 ; m. April 5, 1827, Nancy Kerr, (daughter of Capt. John Kerr) 
b. in New Jersey, December 16, 1806. They are both living at 
Leroy, McLean County, Illinois, having passed the 60th year of their 
married lives. For several years after his arrival in Ohio, Hiram 
spent his time in farming and flat boating on the Ohio and Missis- 
sippi rivers. In 1833 he went to McLean County, 111., and was one of 
the pioneers in developing that rich section of country. The State had 
then 150,000 acres of unreclaimed land, of which Hiram purchased, 
and stdl owns, several hundred acres of the most productive and 
valuable. Mr. Buck is vvliiit may bi termed a self mttde man. He 
has grown up with the country, and by industry and persever- 
ance has become wealthy. H.^ is one of the most prominent and 
highlv respected men in the County and State where he lives. 
Although farming and stock raising have been the principal occu- 
pations of his life, he is well informed on all the current toj^ics of 
the day. He has taken a deep interest in State and National affairs, 
and the men who have managed them. He knew and was an inti- 



164 

mate friend of Judge David Davis, from 1836, and knew Abraham 
Lincoln intimately, from 1833 until his death. He speaks of fifteen 
years of neighborly acquaintance with President William Henry 
Harrison. He has voted seventeen times, the Whig and Republican 
tickets, for President. He was Postmaster under Adams, Jackson, 
Van Buren, Harrison, Taylor and Polk, served as Justice of the 
Peace 18 j^ears, as County Judge of McLean Count}" 8 years, and 
as Town Supervisor 4 years. He can well recollect the last years 
of Jefferson's administration, and the War of 1812, in which three 
of his brothers served. He has been a patron of education, 
and has given bountifully to assist the spread of knowledge. 
He is now Trustee of the State Industrial University, 
at Champaigne, Ills., and also Trustee of Lombard Univer- 
sity, at Galesbnrgh, Ills. At the age of 87, he says his 
health is as good as ever. He sa3's, " I have not given 
" up my place as a farm hand, although I had rather take 
" the easier part, when I can ; I plowed corn the past five weeks on 
" foot, and went my rounds with the boys." His wife, the daughter 
of a E-evolutiouary soldier, w^ho emigrated from N. J. to O, in 1810, 
IS now eighty-two years of age, and, although her memory has be- 
come somewhat treacherous, and she no longer manages her house, 
she is quiet and still, and enjoys life better than tlie majority of 
women at 60 vears of age. Mr. Buck and his family of^sous and 
daughters all live in the same neighborhood, so near together, that 
he says " I can see them all in an hour." 

(809) ELIZABETH BUCK, b. near Trumansburgh, N. Y., Oct. 
14, 1803; m. xipril 7, 1827, Aribert Gazley, b. in Dutcljess County, 
N. Y., Dec. 16, 1797 ; d. at Cincinnati, C, May 23, 1884. Elizabeth 
inherited largely, the disposition and characteristics of her mother. 
Among these were, pluck and determination, — qualities which al- 
ways iurnish a wife and mother with a most formidable equipment, 
to cope with the innumerable obstacles she must meet in her patli- 
wa}^ of duty. While living with her parents near Cincinnati, 
Elizabeth first met her future husband, Aribeit Gazley, who 
had but recentl}^ emigrated from Dutchess County, N. Y, 
The twain, after a brief courtship, were m, early in April, 
1827. The counntry around about Cincinnati, Avas still 
comparatively a wilderness. Land w;is however cheap, and 
the broad Ohio River adjacent, furnished a fair market for 
wood and timber, with the money for which the settler, by dint of 



165 

hard labor and exposure, might, iu time, pay for it No sooner had 
the marriage knot been tied than the young couple shouldered their 
scanty household outfit and plunged into the wilderness about 
fifty miles below Cincinnati, in what is now Switzerland County, 
Ind., bent upon carving out a home for themselves and their pos- 
terity. They found a parti}' cleared but abandoned tract, which 
tliey purchased and settled down to housekeeping after a fashion. 
Tlie husband shouldered his axe and chopped wood, whieh, with a 
yoke of cattle, he hauled to the river bank and sold to the steam- 
boat craft plying up and down the Ohio, devoting the proceeds to 
paying for his land. The dock from which he shipped his wood 
took the name of Gazley's Lauding, which it retained as late as 1850. 
It was as well known to boatmen and travellers as any place on the 
river. Old boatmen still living are walling to testify that Mr. Gazely 
always supplied good wood from his yards at honest prices. Later 
on in life he conducted the mercantile business with success, pur- 
chasing his goods in New York principalh'. Besides performing all 
the duties of a prudent and industrious housekeeper, Elizabeth did 
her full share of outside work. Her husband ahvays bore witness, 
with pride, that she did full as much as he did towards pa3dng for 
the farm. She usually had butter, milk, eggs and other farm pro- 
ducts which she sokl to the boatmen for cash, this being at 
that time about the only market for such products, and the proceeds 
usually went to liquidate the farm and other debts. Her wise coun- 
sel and words of encouragement greatly aided her husband in fight- 
ing the battle of life. In 1867, she and her husband removed to 
Cincinnati, where Mrs. Guzley still resides, with their only son 
Carter. At this present writing (1885) she is, both bodily and men- 
tally, in excellent health, and has undertaken a visit to her relatives 
iu Illinois. In 1884, Mr. Gazley was stricken with paralysis, which 
confined him to his room, and seriously impaired his mental 
powers ; he continued to grow weaker, both physically and men- 
tally, until the 23d of May, 1884, when he breathed his last, with- 
out a struggle. 

(81C) MORTON BUCK, b. near Trumausburgh, N. Y., Aug. 30, 
1806 ; m. Feb. 24, 1832, Rebecca Aunesley Johnson ; b. in Seneca 
County, N. Y., Feb. 6, 1812. They are both living at Fort Madison, 
Keokuk County, Iowa. Morton remained at home, an apprentice 
to the farming business, until he passed his 24th year, when he 
married and settled on a farm not far from the parental homestead 



166 

Here lie remained until March, 1848, when he sold out, and removed 
with his famil}' of seven children to the vicinity of Fort Madison, 
Lee County, Iowa. This, then comparative!}' wild country, has 
now become one of the richest agricultural sections of the great 
West. Here he purchased 350 acres of new land, on the bank 
of the Mississippi river, which by hard labor and economy 
he, in time, reclaimed and paid for, and on a part of whch, he and 
his venerable partner for life, live to enjoy the fruits of their labors. 
He has been a laboring farmer, and never had the speculative fever. 
His life has passed quietly and without friction. Having attended 
closely to business, no exciting event has occurred in his life to 
furnish materials for an elaborate biographical sketch. Though he 
and his wife are nearing the four score milepo'st of life's track, they 
are both quite robust. His children are well to do m the world, 
and own the farms on which they respectively live. No higher 
compliment can be paid to manhood and good citizenship, than that 
which they may be justly paid to Morton Buck, viz : — That he never 
was sued, never sued anyone, and owes no man anything but good 
will. Among his neighbors he is known as Brother Buck, and the 
title is not an empty one. None of his immediate descendants have 
ever paid tribute to either the tobacconist, or the liquor dealer, a 
fact which ought to redound their eternal credit. While his chil- 
dren and grandchildren, do not boast of having added lustre to the 
family name, they can nevertheless point with honest pride, to the 
fact, that they have never tarnished it. Morton Buck was reared 
in the Presbyterian faith, but latterly leans strongly to Universalism, 
to which latter denomination his wife adheres. 

(811) JUDSON BUCK, b. near Truinansburgh, N. Y., Aug. 2.3, 
1808 ; d. at Waynesville, Ills., July 18, 1880 ; m. Nov. 17, 1888,' 
Hannah Johnson, b. Sept. 27, 1808; d. at Waynesville, Ills., Sept. 17 
1878. Judson Buck, at the age of ten, removed with his parents 
to Ohio, where he early learned the trade of a blacksmith. This 
he followed for several years, in connection with farming, in Fav- 
ette County, Ind.; in 1835, having saved enough to buy a home, he 
removed with his wife and children to Switzerland County, in that 
State, where he bought a small farm, on which he remained unti\ 
1850, when his farm becoming too small for the needs of his laro-e 
family, he removed to Waynesville, Dewitt County, Ills., where he 
bought a large farm known as the "Busli Farm," on which he resi- 
ded until his death, and which his sons still occui)y. By industry 



167 

and economj^ he paid for his farm, and became " well oflf." Like 
his brothers, he had a reputation for honesty and fair dealing. As 
a farmer, he was one of the "early and late" kind. Nevertheless, 
he was a great reader, and found much time to indulge in books. 
He rejoiced iu a retentive memory, and loved argument, for which 
he was always ready, on almost any topic of the day. He attached 
himself to no church, but always championed intellectual liberty 
and progression in all things. Sliortly before his death, he divided 
his lands among his chiklren, to prevent wrangling after he should 
depart. 

About noon on July 17, 1880, while on his wa}- in 
his buggy to visit his son, and Avhile aj^parently in 
perfect health, he was stricken with parah'sis. He 

lingered until 2 P. M. the next day, and then passed 
awa\'^ quitelv. The funeral services were conducted at the house 
of his son, from whicli a large concourse of neighbors, friends and 
relatives followed his remaina to the grave. His wife Hannah 
Johnson, was born in Monmouth Countv, N. J , and earlv emigrated 
with her parents to Faj-ette County, Indiana. She was a woman of 
strong mind and pleasing manners, a kind hearted and affectionate 
wife, mother and neighbor. In early life she became a Baptist but 
latter on, that creed becoming too narrow for her, she embraced 
Universalism.

While a y<iung man and some time prior to his marriage, lie made 
his home with liia sister, Elizabeth Gazley. He began life as a flat- 
boat hand on the Ohio river, an occu|)ation for which he was pecu- 
liarily fitted, and soon ranked as a " first class pilot." This business 
(;f piloting boats he continued some time after his marriage, and 
until his brother Asaph persuaded him to relinquish it and go into 
partiiershi]! with him, in the management of a farm onHogan Creek, 
Dearborn ('onnty, Ind., where Asaph was also, at that time, practic- 
ing law. About this time he had seriously involved himself pecu- 
niarily by endorsing paper for some of his friends, so that the part- 
nership with Asaph was carried on without writings. Asaph, by 
his will, left all the partnership assets (whi(di stood in his name) to 
his wife, with a request that she should settle with Lewis, which 



168 

she failed to do, and consequently Lewis lost all lie had put into the 
scheme. He then bought 120 acres of land for which he paid, but 
soon after sold it and removed to his present location. He has 
always been a hard-working man, honest and generous to a fault, 
always trying to help some one else. The loss of his son Peter, to 
whom he was greatly attached, was a severe stroke to him. Harriet 
L. Smith, his first wife, was an intelligent and industrious farmer's 
daughter, greatly esteemed by all wiio knew her. Mr. Buck, though 
far past the time alloted to man, is hale and hearty.

Eliza B. Morton, b. at Lowell, Mass., about 1814 Asaph Buck d. 
childless. He at a very early age, developed a taste for books, and 
soon determined to follow the calling of a lawyer. He persevered 
in obtaining a good education, read law studiously, and was ad- 
mitted to practice, shortly after attaining his majority. He was an 
accomplished land surveyor. I should add here — that fifty y^ears 
ago, in the section in which lie practiced, a lawyer on a Country 
Circuit, must need fully nnderstaud, both the theory and practice 
of surveying. A set of surveyors instruments was as necessary to 
his calling, as " Chitty on Pleading " or " Starkie on Evidence. " 
He was a skillful practitioner, as well as an eloquent pleader, and 
had become a rising and popular lawyer, when death suddenly ter- 
minated a brilliant career. His loss was sorely felt and deeply 
lamented by the bar of his County and his many friends. His re- 
mains rest at Patriot, Switzerland County, Ind. His wife m. again 
to a Mr. Finamore, and was List reported to be residing at New 
Albany, Floyd County, Ind.

those grand Christian mothers that every person delights to honor 
and respect. 

(1396) SALMON TURRELL, b. April 26, 1792, d. at Snow Hill, 
Ind., March 11, 1854 ; m. March 17, 1816, Hannah Snow, b. at West 
Barnstable, Mass., Dec. 28, 1792, d. at Snow Hill, Ind., March 13, 
1860. 

Pi'of. M. S. Turrell of Cincinnati, O., thus speaks of the couple: — 
"Salmon Turrell received a good education and tauglit terms of 
" school, both in Susquehanna County, Pennylvania, and nearPough- 
" keepsie, N. Y. Being desirous to see the western country, and hav- 



216 

" ing the address and location of several acquaintances, who had 
" settled in the west, he came to the City of Cincinnati in 1815. 
" The chain of events which led to his union with Hannah Snow, was 
" somewhat peculiar. Hannah Snow was of Puritan ancestrj^ her 
" ancestors having been among the first emigrants from England to 
" the New World. Her father, Lemuel Snow, was a native of West 
" Barnstable, Mass., and was a man of strict integrity, sound judg- 
" ment, and self reliance. When a youth, at school, the teacher 
" confessed that he was unable to teach him further in arithmetic, 
" he took his books home, and bj the light of pine knots, read the 
" rules and solved all the problems. A soldier of the Revolutionary 
" War, he was at Newburgh, New York, during the last three years 
" of the war and marched with the triumphant troops into the City 
" of New York upon its evacuation by the British army. He was 
" present at the execution of Major x'Vndre at Tappan. 

" Having married and settled in West Barnstable, Mass., he was 
for a term or two chosen to represent the town in the State Legis- 
lature, and in 1813, with his family and some of his neighbors, he 
moved West. The emigrant party, consisting of thirty-five per- 
sons, while travelling in Connecticut, were told that a Justice of 
the Peace, who lived on the road they were travelling, would appre- 
hend and fine them for travelling on Sunday. Not wishing to be 
detained, they deviated from the road they travelled, and at noon of 
a brigiit sunny S.ibbath stopped near a farm house in New Milford, 
Conn., for rest and repast. The faini house was the home of Jared 
and Hannah Turrell, who were absent from home, being at church, 
when the emigrants stopped, but who arrived at home and formed 
an acquaintance with the party of emigrants before they resumed 
their journey. M(»ving on their weary way westward, they settled 
in Franklin County, Ind., about twenty-five miles from the City of 
Cincinnati. In 1814:, Mr. Snow went back to Massachusetts to at- 
tend to some unsettled business, and stopped at night to enjoy the 
hospitality of Deacon Bnck, whose residence was near the home of 
Hannah and Jared Tnrrell. Neighbors came in to inquire about 
the Western country, among whom was Sabnon Turrell, who took 
Mr. Snow's address, and told him he thought of coming West dur- 
ing the next year. He carried o;it this design in 1815, riding twelve 
hundred miles on horseback, and spent some time in visiting ac- 
quaintances, among others the family of Mr. Snow. One result of 
his visit was the marriage of Salmon Turrell to Miss Hannah Snow. 



217 

Thus small e^vents shape our lives. Or is it not rather an xiU wise 
Providence who guides us in a way we cannot foresee. Had there 
been uo Justice of the Peace in Connecticut who apprehended per- 
sons for travelling on Sunday, perhaps Salmon Turrell and Hannah 
Snow had never met. Mr. Turrell assisted to remove his parents 
to Ohio, and remained there till 1824:, when he removed to Snow 
Hill, Franklin County, Ind., where he resided the last fifty years of 
his life. Both he and his wife were greatly respected "

Mr. Mills was by occupation a farmer. Mr. Noble was for a time a 
hotel keeper, then a farmer, and afterwards, and for the last twenty 
years of his life, a merchant at New Lebanon, AVarren County, Ohio, 
He was a man of intelligence, business capacity and highly re- 
spected. Later in life, he dabbled in politics, was a Justice of the 
Peace, and for two terms (1845 and 1846), represented his County 
in the lower branch of the State Legislature.

Foster was named after Seneca, the heathen philosopher, and his

and reared a thousand miles apart. Mr. Foster was a farmer by 
occupation, and a man of good character and judgment. Mr.s. Fos- 
ter was a woman of intelligence and culture, given to writing poetry. 
Some of her effusions are still in the possession of her descend- 
ants. Both herself and husband were highly respected.

Clark, 1). in Somerset County, N. J., Feb. 20, 1801 ; tl. July 24, 1884, 
at Cincinnati, Ohio. Mr. Clark was taken by liis parents from New 
Jersey to Hamilton County, Ohio, when but a year old. Early in 
life he learned the trade of a bricklayer. Later he took up school 
teaching, then painting, and still later became a contractor and 
builder. He was elected Justice of the Peace, and held mau}^ po- 
sitions of importance in the Courts, among which were those of 
Clerk in the Court of Common Pleas, Auditor's and Recorder's offi- 
ces, and in the U. S. Marshal's office. He was also, at one time. 
Chief Journal Clerk of the Probate Court under Probate Judge E. 
r. Noyes, who became Governor of 01) io, and subsequently, by the 
appointment of President Hayes, Minister to Paris. After their 
marriage, the couple made their home in that beautiful and invit- 
ing, but then heavily timbered region, a mile north of Pleasant 
Ridge, and seven miles from Cincinnati. Here they resided until 
1855, when they removed to Cincinnati. Two years after her mar- 
riage, Mrs. Clark joined the Baptist Church, but on her removal to 
Cincinnati connected herself with the Presbyterian Church, with 
which she remained in close communion until her death. 

To great cheerfulness, she joined all domestic virtues and a most 
unassuming tyjie of piety. Mr. Clark joined the Baptist Church in 
1843, in which he was an elder, but with his wife joined the Piesby- 
terian on his removal to Cincinnati. He was an humble, consistent, 
faithful and earnest Christian. He was noted for his dignity, pru- 
dence and firmness. A large proportion of the attendance at his 
funeral were of the " Pioneer Association." who held him in high 
esteem. Both he and Mrs. Clark, were distantly related to Hon. 
Wm. M. Evarts, U. S. Senator from New York, and Mr. Clark 
through the Maxwells of New Jersey, was one of the heirs of estate 
commoidy known as the " Mercer Estate." Both are buried in 
Spring Grove Cemetery at Cincinnati, Ohio.

is from The NobJewUle Independent of April 29, 1875 : — 

"Judge E. S. Stone died on Monday night, about 11 o'clock, aged 
62 years. His illness was of but a few da3's' duration. The Judge 
had overworked himself on Frulay last fighting the fire which had 
been devastating things on his farm. On Saturday he was taken 
with a chill from which he never recovered. 

In the fall of 1837, he was married to Lucy Ann Moffit, daughter 
of Dr. Joseph Moffit, formerly of Connersville, Indiana, who died 
in 1846. He was married again to Caroline CogswHll, daughter of 
Francis B. Cogswell, late of this place in the year 1847. 

Judge Stone made a profession of religion about 30 years ago, 
and was a zealous member of the M. E. Church. 

Judge Stone came to Noblesville iu the beginning of the year 
1838, and entered into partnership in the ])ractice of law with Jacob 
Robins, Esq. After tlie death of John Hutchens, Esq., the only 
lawyer in the place besides the firm of Robins & Stone, the partner- 
ship was dissolved. 

In the year 1811, he was electee! County Auditor, which office he 
filled for one term. He was elected Common Pleas Judge of Ham- 
ilton and Tipton Counties in the year 1852. 

We are mIso informed he represented the ])eople in the Legisla- 
ture, in which position he acquitted himself with honor. 

Besides these high positions he has filled many other minor offi- 
ces, always rendering general satisfaction. He was highly respected 
by his fellow citizens and associates, and his untimely death is de- 
plored b}^ all, and well may it be said that this community has lost 
another good and kind husband, father and citizen. 

The funeral took place from his residence on Wednesday, at 2 
o'clock, which was very imposing. 

The following is the proceedings of the Hamilton County Bar, 
held on Wednesday-, at 10 o'clock. Short speeches were made bj' 
the following members :

Bemauks by Judge Garver. 

In support of the motion I feel constrained to say that I can 
scarcely realize the fact to be, that, our esteemed fellow-citizen and 
dearly beloved brother, the Hon. Earl S. Stone, has been called 
from among us, never, never again to mingle with us here. It 
seems as but yesterday since he snt in the chair now occupied by 
your honor, temporarily; trul}^ we feel now that in the midst of life 



222 

we are in death. I liave known JuJ<^e Stone intimately in all re- 
lations of life, public and private for more than a third of a cen- 
tury ; and I have testimony from my inmost heart that he was the 
noblest work of God, " an honest man," a perfect gentleman of the 
old school in the trne sense of the word ; a profound jurist and an 
able advocate. So fine was his sense of feelings, so kind in his 
nature of the feelings of mankind that while he was the Judge of 
our Court if any fault he had at all, it was that in rendering his 
decisions in favor of the successfiil party ; he would in order to 
lessen the weight of the judgment, on the losing party, find the 
smallest possible amount that the law and evidence would warrant 
iu the case. 

In his practice so kindly and gentlemanly was his deportment to 
the opposing counsel that his acts were sometimes by some sup- 
posed to be a want of manhood ; but woe be to the man who would 
thus undertake to trample upon his rights, his possessions of self 
defence would flash as the lightning, and with the strength of a 
giant his antagonist would soon be made to feel his native power. 

But why need I further speak of this great man when all of my 
brethren knew him so well. I call him great because he was good, 
I feel almost as if one of my own household had fallen ; he has 
gone to a brighter and a better world. Peace, peace, to his ashes."

Additions and Corrections Keceived Up to Date of Going to

Since penning the statement made in lines 20, 21 and 22, on page 
28, the writer has ascertained the name of the first wife of Emanuel 
Buck (1) was Mary Kirby. John Kirby emigrated to America from 
Rowington, near Kenilworth, in Warwickshire, England, in 1643, 
and settled at Pl3'mouth, Mass. He removed thence to Wethers- 
field, Conn., in 1645-6, where he died in 1677, leaving his Avidow 
Elizabeth and a large family of chihlren snrviving. One of these 
children was Mary Kirby, afterwards the wife of Emanuel Buck (1). 
The writer has just struck a clue from which he hopes to discover 
the name of Emanuel's first wife, as well as the exact locality from 
which Emanuel came.
