He married their adopted daughter, Lucy "Ludie" Law on 17 January, 1931. They had 11 children together, 9 of whom survived to adulthood. Gwenda V. and Zelda Vernell died in infancy.

Buell was a farmer in his early years. He became a welder in the shipyards at Wilmington, NC, during World War II. He continued to operate a small engine repair and welding shop in Mt. Airy until his death.
