December 3, 183 1. He attended the district
school, and at an early age taught school in
Franklin several winters. He remained on
the homestead until 1858, when he prospected
several months in Kansas, but decided not to-
move his family west. He purchased several
tracts of land which became more valuable
years later, and was found to have been a
good investment. In 1865, after the death of
his wife, he established himself in business in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where for nearly
ten years he carried on a hat and bonnet
bleachery with success. In 1874 he was called
to Franklin on account of the serious illness
of his mother, and remained to carry on the
farm. He enlarged the house, and at once
began to make improvements and to carry
out his ideas of practical farming. From 1881
to 1885 he raised crops for canning, making
his own cans, and put up in one season fifty-
four thousand cans. As soon as the industry
began to be unprofitable he sold his machin-
ery and stock in hand to a neighbor packing
company. He then gave his attention to the
management of his farm, one of the best in
the town, making his dairy his chief object,
and building three large silos for feeding his
animals in winter. He also raised large quanti-
ties of vegetables and small fruits. He largely
added to the beautiful farm residence, making
it of the very largest in the county, containing
twenty-one rooms. In 1907 he retired from
this fine property to make his home in Pleas-
ant street. Franklin, giving his attention to
the care of his real estate interests.

bers of and active workers in the Fifth Ave-
nue Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, in
which he was elected a trustee in 1872. In
1875 he was elected deacon in the First Con-
gregational Church of Franklin, and has al-
ways taken a deep interest in its affairs. He
is a man of the highest character. His in-
domitable energy, combined with unflagging
industry and wise judgment, brought him
large material success, while his integrity and
Christian spirit have won for him the respect
and friendship of the community.

born in Ellington, Connecticut, July 23, 1767,
died in Monson, December 8, 1842. He set-
tled in Monson in 1795; where he was a pio-

(VIII) Warren, youngest son of Benjamin
and Annis (Fuller) Fuller, who was a Fuller
of a Fuller, was born and raised in Monson,
May 25, 1807. died there February 7, 1862.

of Monson, who was born July 8, 1812, died

uary 8, 1832; Charles (referred to later); El-
len, October 17, 1842, married George Cogs-
well, and (second) A. E. Wildes.

(IX) Charles, second son of Warren and
Lucy (Chapman) Fuller, was born in Mon-
son, April 18, 1840, died in Springfield, No-
vember 1, 1891. He was educated at the acad-
emy in that town and was a wholesale manu-
facturer of cigars. In 1872 he came to Spring-
field and was associated with Herman Huck
in the same business, their shop being located
on Hampden street. The upper story was
used as a storage for grain and a fatal col-
lapse of the over-loaded building is a familiar
incident in Springfield's past. The firm of
Towne Fuller Company was organized in
1873 and of this firm Mr. Fuller composed a
member, the other partners being Mr.Huck
and E. E. Towne. Mr. R. W. Richards en-
tered the firm in 1878. Mr. Fuller was also
an active promoter of the Connecticut Valley
Cigar Company of Westfield. He likewise
was president of the Cigar Manufacturers'
Protective Association of New York, and a
director in the First National Bank. When
Mr. Fuller managed the business in Monson,
cigar making was run on altogether different
lines, the method then in vogue was for the
manufacturer to provide the leaf and the jour-
neyman rolled the cigars at home. Mr. Fuller
at this period of his business career personally
sold everv cigar himself as well as looking af-
ter the details of the manufacturing. His long
connections with the cigar trade brought him
into contact with tobacco growers as well as
the makers. In 1887 the trade journal stated
that the firm with which Mr. Fuller was asso-
ciated as a partner and general manager was
the largest cigar manufacturers in New Eng-
land, and among the largest packers of Con-
necticut leaf tobacco. Although he achieved
unbounded success in his principal calling, he
was also concerned in other interests in the
community. He both loved and knew a horse
thoroughly and was posted on the history of
the turf and the scores of the annual racing
circuit. He was president of the Hampden
Park Association. He invariably served as
one of the judges at the meets and his deci-
sions were always impartially given, creating
entire satisfaction to those concerned. He
was fond of boating and fishing and an active
member of the Amabelish Club. He was a
Democrat politically, though he frequently ex-
ercised the privilege of independent voting. In

1884 he served in the common council and in
1887 represented his ward in the legislature
where he made a crditable record for retrench-
ment and reform. He had a vivacious dis-
position and was fond of good companion-
ship. He married Sophronia Adaline, daugh-
ter of Amasa and Adaline (Munn) King, of
Monson, and granddaughter of Amasa and
Azula (Lewis) King, of Monson. The chil-
dren of Amasa King Jr., were: George Munn,
married Martha Carroll ; Sophronia Adaline,
married Charles Fuller ; Frank Henry, mar-
ried Mary Ann Haywood ; Maria Louise, mar-
ried Edward Gallup, of Brooklyn, Connecti-
cut. Children of Charles Fuller: 1. Clara
Louise, born August 5, 1867, married Charles
H. Mc Knight and has one child, Edward
Fuller, born February 4, 1908. 2. Robert
King, July 20, 1873, married Grace L. Griffin,
June 10, 1902, and has one child, Katherine
Louise. 3. Annie E., November 17, 1876, un-

The name Buckland is
BUCKLAND found on the list of adven-
turous pioneers who first
carried civilization into that part of the un-
broken forest now Hingham. when the first
actual settlers had been but fifteen years in
what is now the state of Massachusetts.

( I ) William Buckland, whose earlier his-
tory is unknown, was in Hingham in 1635, in
Rehoboth in 1658, and the first of his name in
East Hartford, where he settled before 1678.
He deeded land to Daniel Cushing, August 2,
1663. His residence in East Hartford was on
the present site of the Buckland homestead
on Meadow Hill, at the corner of Mill and
Prospect streets. Under the east front room
was a secret cellar entered by a trap door from
above ; its common cellar was on the west
side ; William Buckland was buried Septem-
ber 1, 1678, but there is no record of his age,
nor is there any record of his wife. His chil-
dren are thought to have been : Lydia, Wil-
liam, Joseph, Benjamin.

(II) William (2), supposed to be the son
of William ( r ) Buckland, was born in Reho-
both, Massachusetts, about 1628, and died in

of John, aged about nineteen, Elizabeth about
fifteen, and Jonathan about twelve. Widow
Elizabeth married (second) James Forbes
Sr., father of James Forbes Jr., husband of
Anna Buckland, daughter of Elizabeth. Wil-
liam Buckland married Elizabeth, daughter of
John Hills, and they were the parents of Wil-
liam, Mary, Mehitable, Prudence, Anna, Eliz-
abeth, John, and Jonathan, next mentioned.

(IV) Jonathan", youngest child of William
(3) and Elizabeth (Hills) Buckland, was born
about 1716, died about 1812, at Ellington,
Connecticut. He was a soldier in the Eighth
Regiment, Colonel Jedediah Huntington,
Fifth Company, Captain Charles Ellsworth,
raised by order of the assembly, July, 1775.
He enlisted July 9. The regiment was sta-
tioned on the Sound until September 14. At
Washington's request he was sent to Boston,
and posted at Roxbury in General Spencer's
brigade. His term of service expired Decem-
ber, 1775. He married Sybil Burnham, by
whom he had : Alexander, Jonathan, Polly,
Timothy, Sybil. He may have married (sec-
ond) Sarah Anderson.

(V) Alexander, eldest child of Jonathan
and Sybil (Burnham) Buckland, was born
about 1737 or 1739, died November 26, 1813
or 181 5. He settled in Ellington on the west
side of the Marsh. Alexander Buckland and
his son Alexander were freemen in Elling-
ton, April 7, 1788. The East Windsor record
shows that his will was filed for probate Janu-
ary 3, 1816, his widow, Sarah, being one of
the executors. He married Sarah Smith,
daughter of John and Ruth (Kernes) Smith.
She was born about 1738, died January 19,
1823, or January 20, 1824. Their children
were : Alexander, Epaphras, Sarah, Leverett,
Walter, Ashbel, Erastus, John, Electa and

(VI) Captain Erastus, sixth son of Alex-
ander and Sarah (Smith) Buckland, was
born April 2, 1773 (or 1774), died November
28, 1820. He was probably a captain in the
militia. He was fuller and dyer by occupa-
tion, owning and operating a mill. He mar-
ried Sarah Heath, born April 19. 1775, died
October 21, 1850, daughter of Stephen and
Sarah (Osborn) Heath. There children were:
Erastus, Emily, Harlehigh Cdied young),
Sarah Maria, Lorenzo Montgomery, Alman-
zor Aurora, Harlehigh Heath, Harriet, Al-
mira H. and Marilla Ann.

(VII) Harlehigh Heath, son of Captain
Erastus and Sarah (Heath) Buckland, was
born October 25, 1805, at East Windsor. Con-
necticut, died in Springfield, Massachusetts,
August 25, 1846. He attended the common
schools until he was prepared for higher insti-
tutions and then went to Wilbraham Academy
where he prepared for college. In 1827 he
entered Washington, now Trinity College, and
graduated from that institution. In the pro-
gramme of the "Fifth Junior Exhibition of
Washington College, Wednesday evening,
April 14, 1830, H. H. Buckland, of East
Windsor, Connecticut, is set down for a poem,
'The Voice of the Past.' " The manuscript
of a poem entitled "Retrospect of Our Coun-
try," read before the Athaeneum Society of
Washington College by him, in 1830, is still
in his daughter's possession. Other college
poems of his writing are in her possession.
The "Order of Exercises" of the college, of
1 83 1, August 4, gives as the second item "A
Disputation — Are Wars, in the present state
of the world productive of more evil than
good ?" — by Nathaniel Ellsworth Cornwall
and Harlehigh Buckland, and farther down
the same page "An Oration — The Prospects
of Poland" — by Harlehigh Buckland. In the
list of those who received the degree of Bache-
lor of Arts in 1831, his name again occurs.
He went from Washington College to Yale
College, from which he graduated in the law
after two years atendance and was subse-
quently admitted to the bar. He began prac-
tice in Hartford and later went to Springfield,
Massachusetts, where he spent the remainder
of his life except three years, while at Ben-
tonsport, Iowa. He was a man whose mental
and educational qualifications would have in-
sured marked success in his professional pur-
suits had his health permitted his continu-
ance, but for some years he was practically an
invalid, and at forty years of age he died, be-
ing confined to the house only two days. He
married, November 5, 1834, Sophia Moseley,
youngest daughter of Nathaniel (3) and
Electa (Buckland) Moseley, of Springfield.
She was born March 19, 1815, died Septem-
ber 10, 1897. (See Moseley VII). They had
five children, two of whom died in infancy ;
the surviving children were: 1. Edward
