MRS. J. D. Buckland Dead

As stated last week Mrs. Nancy Buckland died on the 13th of this moth at her home in Bountiful of nethritis.

The funeral services were held in the tabernacle in East Bountiful, Sunday at 2 p.m. The speakers were Israel Call, Israel Barlow, Jr., W. W. Willey and Benjamin Ashby. They all spoke very highly of the deceased. There was a large attendance.

Deceased was born in Gloucester, Providence County, Rhode Island and was over seventy-six years old.

She left the east about the time gold was discovered in California, sailing around the southern extremity of South America to where San Francisco now is. On the voyage she became acquainted with Alonzo Buckland to whom she is married.

They lived in California a few years, and made all the money, it has been stated, that their hearts desired. Some have estimated that they are worth $200,000. Her husband bought up several hundred head of horses, sheep and cattle and came to Utah, being also one of the early settlers here. He purchased a great deal of real estate in Bountiful.

Her husband later went east on a mission and died on his way back. His brother James D. was traveling out here with him and later married his widow. He too, has been dead several years.

She was the mother of ten children.
