Not positive, but Buckingham may have been in Pennsylvania. Many of the Quakers in this area came from there.

By the way, do you know where attendees at the Goose Creek Meeting would have been buried in the late 1700s and perhaps early 1800s? I don't actually know where the site of Goose Creek is. I got completely lost on trip through the area about a week ago and had to give up my search when I ran out of daylight. I did encounter the Ebenezer Baptist Church and massive cemetery in southwestern Loudoun. Part of the plaque for this place refers to the earlier structures as "meeting houses" and to doctrinal divisions that split the meeting. Do you happen to know whether this was originally a Quaker site?
I'm trying to found a trace of my ancestors from here, including Gibson, Brooke and McNabb families.
