Randolph  County,  Indiana

Joshua  Buckingham

            Rachel Buckingham and daughters  Margery,  Rachel,  Sarah  and  Hannah were received on certificate from Cane Creek Monthly Meeting, North Carolina, on September 6. 1823, and that Joshua's son, Thomas, was received just a month earlier.  There is nothing in the minutes of the White River Meeting to indicate that Joshua was also received, nor is his name mentioned in subsequent minutes referring to the Buckingham's.  It is possible that he was, at the time, out of favor with the Cane Creek Meeting.  Joshua was related to the rest of the community on arrival, his wife was, having been a North Carolina  Piggott.  Little else is known of the Buckingham family.  The young folks also quickly complicated relationships.  Margery married  Moses Mendenhall  in 1825;  Rachel married  Enoch Cox, son of  Jeremiah, in 1827;  Thomas married  Catherine Roberson (Robinson) in 1833;  Sally (Sarah) married a  Ferrens in 1834; and  Hannah married  Amos Fry  in December 1836.  Later Margery, a widow, married  John Pike.
