George Buck was born in Germany about 1740 and with his parents Frederick and Mary Buck and brother Philip migrated to Philadelphia, PA sometime around 1744. George and his parents eventually settled in NY while his brother Philip went to Pennsylvania.


George Buck married Elizabeth HOPP Abt. 1765 in New York, daughter of Jan Hopp and Elizabeth KASEBY. She was born May 1742 in Dutchess, New York, and died September 10, 1823 in Kingston, Frontenac County, Ontario, Canada.


During the American revolution he assisted and directed people involved in spying for the British forces. He was unable to serve in the army because he had a clubfoot. After the war he moved with his family to Kingston, Ontario. He drew 3 lots on 4 July 1785: Lot 18. 4 Con. - Lot 5. 4 Con. - Lot 10. 4 Con. George was a United Empire Loyalist, Order in Council, 7 April 1807. It shows in records that he drew rations for his wife, himself, and a family, which consisted of 2 sons over the age of 10, 2 sons under 10, 4 daughters over 10, and 2 daughters under 10. George had Crown Deed for Lot 24 in 4 Con. Kingston Township.


They moved to Kingston Township in 1784 where they raised their eleven children.


George lived until about 1807. When Elizabeth died about 1830(?), she left 11 children, 39 grandchildren, 77 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great-grandchildren. The descendant to be mentioned most is George Buck junior, born in 1770 and married to Ann (Hannah) Snook, daughter of Martin Snook and Elizabeth Schauerman, both Loyalists.

George and Hannah had the following children: Catherine (1761-1839) Margaret (1766-1840); Hannah (1767-1839); Mary (1768-1839); George Frederick (1770-1856); Frederick (1778-1864); Susannah (1780-1840); Adam (1783-1831); Eva Eve (1783-1840)
