From "Meyersdale Rebuplican" 9 Feb 1905, p. 1
"DEATH OF SAMUEL BUCKMAN
Samuel Buckman, the well known hotel man of Rockwood, died at his home in that city on Friday, aged about seventy years. The immediate cause of his death was pneumonia. He was suffering from a cancerous grouth, and a few days prior to his death he took a heavy cold, and pneumonia developed, and in his weakened condition he was unable to rally, and death followed.

"We doubt if there was a more widely known man in this county than was Sam Buckman, as he was commonly called. He came to this county when the Somerset & Cambria branch was building, and he had charge of the erection of may of the bridges on that line, that being his vocation. We are also told by his friends here that he erected a number of county bridges over the county in those days. AFter the road was completed, he started in the hotel business at Rockwood, it then being known as Mineral Point. He was liberal and many are the charitable deeds that he done, but it was always in a quite way, and he did not care to have it exploited.

"He is survived by his wife and one daughter, and they have the sympathy of his old firends all over this county."
