Lily Buckner was the daughter of Simon Bolivar Buckner (1823-1914) and Mary (Kingsbury) Buckner. At age two, shortly before the Civil War, she became a member of the Buckner Guards in the Second Regiment, Kentucky State Guard militia. During the war, when her father was a Confederate general, she spent much time in and around military camps. On June 14, 1883, she married Morris B. Belknap at Calvary Episcopal Church in Louisville. She died on December 29, 1893, leaving her husband and four young children. In 1896, her husband installed a beautiful marble fountain in her memory in Munfordville, Hart County, Kentucky.
