J. V. Keeran received a dispatch last evening from Spokane Falls announcing the death of his brother-in-law, J. M. Buckley, which occurred at Hot Springs, Ark., on the 14th. His ailment was rheumatism.  Mr. B. commenced railroading early in the 50’s by laying their track through the L. N. A. & C. cut in this city to Ladoga. Later he became an engineer and in the 60’s took the position of road master on the Kansas City, Ft. Scott and Gulf Railroad, which position he held for fifteen years. About 1880 he went with C. F. Oaks to the western coast and took charge of the west division of the Northern Pacific as general manager. After five years in that service he resigned and built the Spokane & Western. He leaves a wife, sister of Mr. Keeran, and three grown children. thanks so much to s for tying this and so many obits for this site
