Lenox Time Table - Dec. 6, 1945
Alfred Lee Buxton, son of Mary and Robert Buxton, was born October 7, 1892, on a farm in Adams county and departed this life November 24, 1945, at Research Hospital, Kansas City, Missouri, at the age of 53 years, 17 days.
He was married December 6, 1916, to Cora Recknor of Prescott. This home was blessed with four children, who are: Claudine Buxton Spriggs, Madera, California; Glenna Maxine, who died at 21 months; Pvt. Leo Burdette (Buck), Ft. Benning, Georgia; Norma Jean Buxton, at home.
Also surviving are his son-in-law, Alfred Spriggs, and his brothers and sisters; Lloyd Buxton, Creston; Clifford Buxton, Kent; Mrs. Lloyd Case, Layton, Utah; Mrs. Donald Hill, Corning; Rolland Buxton, Lenox; Thelma Bethke, Red Oak.
He lived in the Stringtown community until 14 years ago, when he moved to the home near Platte Center Church.
At an early age he joined the United Presbyterian Church at Stringtown and was an active member at the time that church changed to the Federated Community Church. During his residence in this community he was a faithful member of Platte Center Church.
He was always an active participant in all the worthwhile activities of his community. Not only the family but the community has lost one of its strongest pillars of kindness and understanding. Mr. Buxton's judgment was highly respected and his influence was far reaching. He will be remembered as an inspiration in genuine Christian citizenship.
