Mrs. Buckman enjoyed remarkable good health and retained all her faculties almost unimpaired until the last. About two weeks previous to her death she received a fall while walking across the floor, and the shock to her system, enfeebled by age, caused her death. The funeral was held on Thursday and was conducted by Rev. Samuel Lugg. Many friends paid a last tribute of repect to her memory.
