Clement Evermon Buckman (b. 1821 in Union County, KY) married Servilla Ann Shanks (b. 1826). After living in Kentucky, the family moved to Bourbon County, Kansas via covered wagon. In 1864, the family moved to Arizona. Along the way, Clement Everman Buckman was born. After a stay in Arizona, the family decided that the threat of Indians was too much, so they set off for California. They first went to San Bernadino, but then ended up near Visalia, California.
There was an old "Buckman Homestead" that was located in Outside Creek, outside of Visalia, for many years. My great-grandparents, Clement T. Buckman, Jr. and Edna Tschumy Buckman built a large two-story house in the center of Visalia that still stands today. My grandmother, Lois Buckman Simpson lived in the house, and my father, Stanley Shea Simpson, Jr. lives in it today.
By the way, my father, Stan Simpson, is the Chairman of the Board of Buckman-Mitchell Insurance, which was started by Clement T. Buckman, Jr. earlier in the last century and is still operating. My sister and her children still live in Visalia, so the Buckman line is still going strong there! There are many Buckmans in the Visalia Cemetery, and the Exeter Cemetery, which shows that it is hard for the Buckmans to leave the home front!--Caroline Simpson Olson, Oregon City, Oregon
Note: I obtained most of the above info from Phyllis Pennebaker Gross' book, "Pennebakers and Buckmans--Pioneers."
