Birth: 1842
Death: Jun. 10, 1937
Lidcombe
New South Wales, Australia

Thomas Francis Buckley was stated, in his obituary, to have been a drummer boy in the 11th Massachusetts Infantry, though there is no evidence of his having served, in that unit, under that name. He was a member of the United States War Veterans' Association of Sydney, as well as an organisation known as the "Not Under 70 Club". He had carried his drum, which had a bullet hole in the vellum, wherever he went, and requested that he be buried with the drum. He died at his residence at 4 Henry Street, Lidcombe, and the service at his funeral was conducted at St. Joachim's Roman Catholic Church, Lidcombe.
He was stated to have been an old veteran actor.
