Mrs. Phoebe Buck

Mrs. Phoebe Buck, who died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Schlagenhauf, in Union (MO), early Wednesday morning, the 25th inst, was Union's oldest citizen, being ninety years, five months and twenty two days old, at the time of her death. Phoebe Frazee was born in Washington Co., Pa, Aug 8, 1808. Her mother dying when she was a child, she lived with an older sister, with whom she removed to Poland, Ohio, and lived until she was married to Mr. John Buck. She lived with her husband in Berlin, Ohio, until 1866, when the family came to Union and located on a farm just north of town, where the husband died in 1876. Mrs. Buck was the mother of eight children, two of whom died in infancy. One son William died in 1865, while on his way home from the army. One daughter, the wife of David Carson, a formerly well known citizen of our county, died many years ago. Another daughter, Rosa, died in Union a few years ago. Her surviving children are C.M.Buck, Union's well known livery man; Dr. John Buck, of Topeka, Kan., with whom deceased has made her home for a number of years. Mrs. Buck had been a member of the Presbyterian church for many years.
