Lieutenant of Virginia Militia; county Magistrate at the age of 21; Captain in the 8th Virginia Regiment during the Revolution, one of the original trustees of the town of Front Royal, and a leading citizen for a number of years. In 1797 - 98 he built the home "Bel Air" on Happy Creek in Front Royal, where it still stands although no longer in the possession of the Buck family. He lived and died in Virginia, and he and his wives were buried in the family cemetery at Buckton. From his brief memoirs, it appears probable that he, too, was strongly influenced by the Rev. Ireland -- "Thanks to his (God's) Holy Name, he sent his gospel among us". Wm. Mason Buck says of him, "He was one of the most useful and active men of his day -- an humble, consistent Christian".
