DR. ROBERT M. BUCKMASTER
Dr. Robert M. Buckmaster, who has been in failing health for some time, died at his home in Orlando Sunday morning at the age of eighty-three years.
Dr. Buckmaster has lived a splendid, active, and useful life, his early service being given to his country during the Civil War. Afterwards he entered his profession in Kentucky, where he was prominently identified with the State Osteopathic Association until he came to Florida twenty years ago.
For years Dr. Buckmaster was a resident of St. Cloud and was the oldest osteopathic physician in the county. During the past year Dr. and Mrs. Buckmaster decided to move to Orlando, where they could be near their sons, Dr. R. P. and Dr. O. L. Buckmaster, and their daughter, Mrs. Lillie Reynolds, all of whom live in that city.
He was a member of the Knight Templar and an ardent Methodist. He leave many friends who extend sympathy to his bereaved wife and family in their hour of sorrow.
The funeral was held from the Eiselstein Brothers' funeral home at four o'clock Monday afternoon, conducted by Dr. Ivor G. Hyndman of the Methodist church, with interment in Mt. Peace.
