The couple had 10 children: Louisa "Lucy," Kathryn "Katie" -- sisters who married Smith brothers -- John, William, Lyda, Lena, Anna, Mary, Emma and Ella Bellene.
On the back of an old picture postcard depicting the Putnam house, before it was enclosed in Campus Martius Museum, a child of this couple's daughter Mary Buck [ later married Schantz of Akron ] pencilled:
"Mother's name Mary Buck, daughter of John Buck. Uniontown PA. Moved his family here [ meaning picture on the card ] in 1831. Mother lived here when a child of 11 years of age [ about the 1860s ], now fixed up as a museum. Put in a brick building build [ sic ] by my uncle John Smith." [ The John C. Smith who married the sister Katie of that Mary Buck was, indeed, a Marietta bricklayer who bricked many Marietta landmarks, such as Campus Martius and the post office. ]
Lucy Buck Smith is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery. Katie Buck Smith is buried in Eastlawn cemetery. There also is another John Buck in Oak Grove, but that connection is yet unclear -- There is more than one Buck family there.
Sarah Charlotte's brother Leonard is buried in Brabham cemetery in Warren Township near Marietta. Her brother George and sister Caroline (Mrs. Daniel Lauer) is buried in Oak Grove. Her brother Charles lived in Parkersburg but his burial location is not yet documented.
The family finds her un-etched death date and tombstone motto "Gone but not forgotten," sadly ironic, and wonders whether to fix it or leave it.
