Birth: Jan. 6, 1847
Sullivan County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Jan. 1, 1921

Per TVA records, original gravesite was at Holston Valley Church Cemetery, Plot 23-95, Sullivan County, Tennessee. Due to construction of the TVA's South Holston Reservoir Project, in 1947 the gravesite was relocated to this "new" Holston Valley Church Cemetery, from its original site. Many of the gravesites were not relocated and remain under the waters of the reservoir.

She was thought to have family, in North Carolina, who migrated to the southwestern Virginia/northestern Tennessee area. She grew up in the Holston Valley area, was educated there and married John M. Buckles after the Civil War. They had several children including J.S. Buckles, Benjamin Campbell Buckles and some others. Her husband John taught school in the area and was a yeoman farmer as well. She maintained their home and raised their children. She was known to be a good Christian wife and mother.
