ELIJAH S. BUCKLEY - For the past eighteen years Elijah S. Buckley has been a resident of Broome county, New
York, and has won the respect of his fellow citizens for his many sterling qualities.
Mr. Buckley was born June 13, 1848, in Sharon, Connecticut, son of Benjamin and Harriet Buckley; the former was
a shoemaker by occupation, and served in the Civil War, as did three of his sons. Mr. Buckley attended the district
schools of Wassaic, New York. At about the time the Borden Milk Company was organized and they began the manufacture
of condensed milk, Mr. Buckley received a position with this firm to manufacture the tin cans used to preserve
the milk, and for forty years he was engaged in this work. After discontinuing to supply these cans, he removed
to Broome county, and settled in the town of Endicott, New York, where his son was already located, and since residing
there has been associated with the latter in conducting a stationery store. Mr. Buckley is well known among the
business men of Endicott and enjoys a wide friendship. His life has been a useful and industrious one, and one
that in the retrospect can bring a feeling of pride to him and to his posterity.
In political matters he has been a Republican and an ardent worker in the interests of this party. He is a member
of the Masonic order, including the Blue Lodge and Chapter.
Elijah S. Buckley married, in New York City, in September, 1875, Katie Rienhardt, daughter of Henry and Eva Rienhardt;
she was born May 30, 1856, and is the mother of two sons and one daughter: Byron, Clifford W. and Helen.
