BUCK:Perlina, Alfred, Reuben-McHenry Co.

I am looking for parents & siblings of Perlina(or Paulina) Buck, b.18 Apr 1816 Palmyra, NY.

An Alfred Buck b. 20 jul, 1810, son of Reuben Buck & Mary A. Gidley, is buried next to Perlina's husband, James McMillan(one of the founders of Nunda) in Nunda,McHenry Co., ILL in a small McMillan graveyard. Alfred Buck lived in Wayne Co,NY when his parents moved there when he was 4 yrs. old,then in 1840 came to & settled in Nunda Township, McHenry Co, ILL.

I did find a on microfilm, a newspaper clipping in the Palmyra NY Library saying that Reuben Buck & Mary Gidley Buck, who were living in Palmyra lost their land, because they didn't have $ to pay their taxes.I have that: "Reuben moved to Michigan in 1864 & died there at age 86 yrs." but where in Mich & when did Reuben die?

I think that Alfred may be a brother to Perlina, but haven't found any proof. Does anyone know Perlina's siblings & parents?
Can anyone help me?
