Wm. Buckles, A Former Russell Man
Mr. Buckles came to Kansas from Hansonville, va., 55 years ago and settled on the farm which he still owns two miles east of Muscotah. About 20 years ago he retired from the farm and has been living in Muscotah. He served one year in the Confederate army.
He had the reputation of being one of the very best county commissioners Atchison county has ever had. Republicans as well as Democrats always admired him for his frankness and fairness in office. - Atchison, Kans., Globe
