A.T. BUCKERIDGE IS DEAD AT 65 YEARS

For Many Years His Nursery on Old Toler Homestead Has Been Pride of the City

A.T. Buckeridge, aged 65, who came to Wichita in 1877, died at his home, 1621 Fairview avenue, last night at 10 o'clock.

Mr. Buckeridge came to Wichita 35 years ago, from Michigan. He was born in Canada, but moved to Wichita while very young. In the early days Mr. Buckeridge was connected with a pump factory in this city. He spent much of his time in building a nursery on his lots on Fairview.
His home is known as the old H.D. Toler homestead, and for many years North End citizens have considered Mr. Buckeridge's lawn and grounds the most attractive in that part of the city. He took great pride in his nursery, and was especially fond of shrubs and flowers. The old cider mill of Mr. Buckeridge's has been the worshipping throne of dozens of little children in that part of the city. Little folks for blocks around were acquainted with Mr. Buckeridge, and every fall they would flock to his home with baskets of apples which they had gathered here and there, to be made into cider, for Mr. Buckeridge was their true friend and would always allow them the use of his cider mill, oft time neglecting his work seeing that the youngsters were successful in their cider-making.

For the past few years, Mr. Buckeridge had ceased to devote his entire time to the nursery and was connected with the firm of Buckeridge & Miles, cement contractors.

Mr. Buckeridge was always active in city affairs, especially in the early days, having served several terms in the city council.

He is survived by his wife, one son, Frank Buckeridge, and four daughters, Mrs. Amos Burns, of this city; Mrs. John Gribi, of Chickasha, Okla.; Mrs. George Neal, Caldwell, Kan., and Mrs. Ralph Harris, Washington, D.C.

The deceased was a member of the Wichita Masonic lodge No. 99.
