There is an annual Family Reunion Potluck Picnic in Fargo, ND/Moorhead, MN on the third Sunday of July every year. It is called the Buckle family reunion as it was started with the family of William & Elisa Buckle. Anyone is welcome to come. For details please contact me.

She was named at birth Thea Elisa at some point her name changed to Elisa Thea. She married William John Clayton Buckle on 7/9/1916. They had seven children: Velma, Mabel, Elvira, Kearney, Marvel, LaVerne, & Coral Jean.
Elisa was often remembered for always wearing an apron. One of her grandchildren cut all of her aprons into small pieces and put them into small decorated jars called Elisa's Apron Preserves and given to each of her decendents at that time. These little jars will be cherished for many generations.

The 1930 Census shows she lived with her father and her two youngest children. The other 5 children and husband were elsewhere. The other 5 children were located in the census living with aunts & uncles. In speaking with the children, this was due to Elisa being very ill and unable to care for her children for several months while her husband (their father) was away working.
