A Phalanx Pioneer Dead

Mrs. Eliza (Sears) Bucklin Dies At The Age Of 84 Yeaars

She Was the Widow of John Bucklin

Mrs. L. Eliza Bucklin, widow of John Bucklin, died on Monday at the Phalanx, aged 84 years. She had been confined to her bed for a number of years with locomotor ataxia, but her mind was clear almost to the last.

Mrs. Bucklin was the last of the original settlers of the North American Phalanx. She was born in New York state in 1817. In 1843 she and her husband went to the Phalanx with the Albany colony. Mrs. Bucklin was a Sears before her marriage and her mother, a brother and a sister went to the Phalanx with her. Her husband was once president of the association and her brother, Charles Sears, also held that position for a time.

Mrs. Bucklin entered the association with great enthusiasm and she took a very active part in the hard work of the pioneer days. During the closing years of her life she looked back on the work of these early days without regret, feeling sure that the good work begun under such difficulties was not lost. She had enduring faith in the belief that cooperative living is the only way to solve the problems of society in its present stage.

Mrs. Bucklin was a remarkable woman in many respects. She was cultured to a marked degree and the guiding principle of her life was to do good to others. Four children survive Mrs. Bucklin. They are Mrs. Julia Giles, Charles S. Bucklin, Frances Woolcott and W. S. Bucklin. The funeral will be private and the body will be buried in Fair View cemetery.
