Died, Friday, April 22, at her home, 606 South Fourth street, after a brief illness, Mrs. H. B. Buck. Funeral at the family residence Sunday afternoon. Mrs. Buck was best known in the circles of the First Presbyterian church, of which she was a devoted member. She was a consistent and earnest, but unobtrusive, Christian worker and found great satisfaction in relieving the distress of many needy persons. She was always a devoted wife and mother and the family ties sundered by death thus rudely leave the heart of her loved ones sadly bereaved.

Mrs. Buck was Miss Elizabeth Heller when Dr. Horatio B. Buck led her to the altar, March 24, 1863, at her home in Philadelphia, Pa. She was then 27 years old, having been born Sept. 2, 1836. Very soon after their marriage, and during the civil war period, Dr. Buck brought his bride to Springfield, where he was surgeon in charge of Camp Butler and they have ever since made their home in this city. Mrs. Buck was the mother of seven children, of whom five survive, Mrs. H. F. Dorwin, Miss Clara B. Buck, Miss Margaret W. Buck, George H. Buck and Horatio B. Buck, jr., all residents of their native city. IL State Journal, Springfield, Il 4-23-1898
