Good afternoon,

I know some things about the bucks. From my research from my tree they  came from up North and settled in other areas. My Bucks ended up in NC.

Hi, my mom is a Buck. I don’t have the full Buck connection, but her grandfather, William H Buck (Buck-3193) was born in NY and moved to Ludington Michigan…his father, Albert Buck had died or disappeared in the Civil War.  William H raised 3 children in Michigan.  My grandfather, David LeRoy Buck moved and raised his family in Tennessee then IL…I have quite a lot of Buck cousins as my mom is one of 7.  William’s daughter never married or had children.  His other son, Wilson Horton Buck (Buck-3214) was a Dentist in IL and had one son before he died.  His son had at least 2 children (one son), who from what I gathered grew up in North Carolina with is mother after the parents divorced.  That is Wilson Edward Buck, born 1956.  I would love to find out more about him.  He is my 2nd cousin.

 

My Buck line goes…my 3x great grandfather William S Buck (b. 1814), my 2x great grandfather, Albert Buck (1840-1865), my great grandfather William H Buck (1862-1938), my grandfather, David Leroy Buck (1903-1968), my mom (b 1934), and me.

 

I don’t have any information on my 3x great grandfather, William S Buck, except that he married Lavinia Osborne.  Would love to link William with his parents.  I will check out some of the resources listed here.
