The funeral of Samuel Buck was preached at Young's Chapel Sunday at  2 p.m. by Rev. Wallace Tharp and assisted by Rev. Krewell, Rev. Tharp read from the 14th Chapter of Job and also the words from St. Paul, "Oh death where is thy stine?  Oh grave where is thy victory? He also quoted Mrs. Heman's beautiful stanza on death: Leaves have their time to fall And flowers to wither at the north wind's bereath; And stars to set - but all, Thou has't all seasons for thine own, Oh death. Mr. Buck was born in Butler County, Ohio July 28 (sic should be 18), 1823 and departed this life August 16, 1902. Again have we lost an old pioneer who if he had been spared a few months longer would have been an octogenarian,. He was a good Christian man and had fully prepared himself for that everlasting sunshine and happiness. The remains were laid to rest in Oak Hill cemetery. The relatives have the sympathy of all in tis their sad bereavement.
