WALTER BUCKMAN

WALTER BUCKMAN. A type of the active, enterprising citizen is found in Walter BUCKMAN, of Upper Makefield township. He is a son of Franklin and Martha (HAMPTON) BUCKMAN, and was born June 4, 1857, at Dolington, Bucks county, and obtained his education in the common schools. He worked on the home farm until the spring of 1880, when he moved to Taylorsville and there engaged in the coal, lime, and lumber business, which he conducted until 1894. In that year he disposed of the business and turned his attention to farming, to which he has since devoted himself. For several years he served as school tax collector and for eight years was supervisor of the township. He is an adherent of the Republican party and a member of the Society of Friends. Mr. BUCKMAN married in 1878, Ida, daughter of Joseph PHILLIPS, of Trenton, New Jersey, and they are the parents of the following children: Charles, who lives in Upper Makefield township; Ambrose, who is also a resident of that township; Eva, Lela, Watson, Willard, Lulu, Edward, and Laura. Of these, all but the two eldest are at home with their parents.
