BUCKLES 45, DIED SUNDAY; BEDFAST 7 YEARS Clarence Cecil Buckles, a resi- dent of Mount Pulaski and com- munty most of his life, died at 10:25 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 19, 1961, in the Abraham Lincoln Memor- ial Hospital, Lincoln, Ill., where he had been a patient for 11 days. He was aged 45 years, 2 months and 6 days. The illness of Mr. Buckles was an unusual one. He first became ill over 14 years ago while liv- ing in Detroit, Mich. Coming back to Mount Pulaski he was able to get about at times, but for the past seven years had been bed- fast. He had been a hospital patient on many occasions. Clarence Cecil Buckles was born Oct. 13, 1915, in Mount Pul- aski, Ill., a son of Cecil and Grace Smith Buckle After attending the local schools,  he left for De- treit, Mich., and for several years was employed in building con- struction, work, where he was in jured. In Windsor, Ontario, Cana- da, across the river from Detroit he married Miss Annia Whitmore on June 30, 1942: They lived in Detroit until 1947, when they came to Mount Pulaski and liv- ed for a few years on a Buckles farm two miles southwest of the city, 'in which he had an interest. His health never improved and the family moved into the city. About six years ago they pur- chased the Newspaper & Maga- zine Agency on South Washing- ton St., and moved into the rear part of the business room. Decedent was a member of the Mount Pulaski Methodist Church and the Eagles Lodge in Lincoln. It will interest many people to know that Mr. Buckles is a de- scendent of a Buckles family that located along the timber line on the lake a few miles southwest of the city about 1822, a num- ber of years before Mount Pul- aski was founded in 1836. His grandfather was Elias Buckles, and his great-grandfather was John Buckles, who were such well known residents of this commun- ity. Mr. Buckles is survived by his wife, and two daughters, Shar- on and Linda, at, home; one sis- ter, Emagene, wife of Eugene Weckel, of Mount Pulaski vicin- ity, and nieces Ann and Pamela Weckel; also his mother, Mrs. Grace Buckles, who lives with her daughter, Mrs. Weckel.
