Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 735, Van Buren Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"JAMES BUCK was born in this county November 21, 1841, and is a son of John and Elizabeth Buck, with whom he lived until about his eighteenth year, when he was employed by the C., C. & I.C.R.R. Co. as brakeman, from which position he rose to be conductor, and was in the employ of the company about eight years. May 5, 1868, he married Martha E. Miller, who was born in Pennsylvania in 1847, and died in this county November 21, 1869. He next married, August 3, 1871, Ruth A. Nickless, who was born in this county October 27, 1850. Shortly after this
marriage he moved to Royal Center, Cass County, Ind., and thence to Logansport. In 1867, he purchased eighty acres of land in this township, upon which he moved in 1874, and is now engaged in general farming. His five children were named as follows: Carrie M., John N., Charles E., Minnie J. (deceased), and James W.C."
