Yates County, NY Biographies





Buxton, William W., was a son of John Buxton, Br., and the grandson of John, sr., the latter one of the pioneers of Milo. William W. was born in Milo August 9, 1837. He started out in life with a determination to possess a thorough education, but financial reverses coming to his father changed his plans and compelled his return to the farm. He exhibited a remarkable inclination and taste for geology and mineralogy, and in these fields he has indulged so far as time would permit. His chief occupation is farming and fruit and grape growing. In 1861 Mr. Buxton married Sarah C. Babcock, by whom he has two children, John G. and Watts. The latter died in infancy.
