horses that had been worn down by farmers and trade for them.  He would
feed them and get them back in shape and trade these horses to other
farmers.  He had three or four stud horses and a jack that he kept for
breeding.  Ray was an outstanding judge of horses.  He could look at a
horse and tell if he had a good horse or not.  Most farmers didn't have
the ability to do this.  Ray made good money trading horses."  3 children:

 bur Henley-Hornbrook Cem.  THE BUCKNERS OF SISKIYOU COUNTY - ex Steve COMBS

Nancy (BUCKNER) SHETTLER 264 seems to be the first of the BUCKNERs to arrive in
Henley, (at that time called Cottonwood), in about 1853. She came to California
with her two children, Ellen 2641 & Alice 2642, & her husband Charles SHETTLER.
Margaret, (known as "Annie"), and Albert were born here before Nancy divorced 
Mr. SHETTLER. She married John HILT around 1860, and they lived in Henley. 
They had two sons; Henry, who died before 1870, and John Arthur, whose head was
hit by a rock when he was thrown from a horse at age 13. The horse returned 
home, but his dog was found lying with his front paws and head resting on the 
boy, guarding him. Nancy's sister, Emily 269, came west in the early 1860's 
and married Charles Wesley HILT 30 Jul 1863. William HILT, father of John and 
Charles, came with Charles to the area in 1860. Emily and Charles were parents 
of Allen and Wilmer who were both born in Henley. As Emily died in 1873 and 
Charles in 1878, the boys were raised by Nancy and John. John HILT came across 
the plains to California by ox team in 1851 and there met William H. SMITH who 
when 14 years old had traveled twice between St. Joseph, Mo., and Santa Fe, 
N.M., with Kit CARSON and two of his partners hauling whiskey and other 
provisions to trade with the Navajo Indians. One of the partners, a Mr. 
MAXWELL, loved to gamble as did the Indians. They would race horses with 
little William as the jocky, but the Indian ponies would always win. This 
angered MAXWELL, and on his return to St. Joseph he purchased a thoroughbred 
race horse. On the next trip they won blankets, weapons, food, and even some 
squaws. When CARSON arrived, he made them give all the loot back, as his 
business depended on the good will of the Indians. At the end of the second 
trip William hired out to CARSON'S other partner, MCDERMOTT, and came to Los 
Angeles where he met John HILT, and together they walked to Hangtown, (now 
Placerville), pushing a wheelbarrow containing pick, pan, and shovel. Upon 
arrival they heard of an even richer gold strike near Yreka, so they walked 
to that town and then on to the Henley area where they finally took up mining. 
HILT and SMITH were responsible for the hydraulic cuts in the hills above 
Henley, and they hired hundreds of Chinese to work the mines. They started a 
saw mill, and SMITH sold his share to HILT in 1877. SMITH also had a general 
store, blacksmith shop, and stage express station. Nancy HILT sent her 
daughter, Ellen SHETLER, to Michigan to live with reletives and attend a 
proper school. When it came time for her to return to California, John HILT 
and William SMITH went to get her. John went to visit reletives in Illinois 
while William went to Michigan for Ellen. She told him that it would not be 
proper for them to travel together unless they were married, so they did and 
lived happily ever after. She established the Western Union telegraph office 
in their home in Henley. Elisha BUCKNER 266 came to Siskiyou County in 1882 
with his sons Nixon 2663 and Miles 2664. He did some mining while his sons 
worked for John HILT at the sawmill. In 1885, he sent for the rest of the 
family. They came by train to Ashland, Or. in what were called emigrant cars, 
then by wagon to Henley. Elisha and family returned to Illinois in the early 
1890's with six of his children either remaining in the area or returning to 
live in Siskiyou County.

267 3-Nixon S. BUCKNER 11 Oct 1840 IL-18 Apr 1918 CA bur 22.4.1918 
 Captain in the Civil War in the 79th Regiment under US GRANT. 
 Methodist preacher & circuit rider. This family arrived from KS in Henley,
Siskiyou Co, CA 1887. He sold real estate in Tacoma, WA Territory for a short
time before moving to CA c1898. Here is his autobiography written in hia own 
handwriting in a small notebook.
      Born-  near  York  -  Clark  County  Illinois, 11 Oct 1840. 
      My father was a farmer. There were
      in the family eight boys and three girls. Six boys and two girls
      lived to man and  womanhood. I attended school  - such as it  was
      (Subscription School) three months in the year, from the age of
      seven until I was fifteen years old. My mother died when I was 14
      years  old. The spring before I was 16 I was hired to work a
      year  for a  man  named George HILLER in Coles County,  IL. at
      SlO.OO a month. He had a large farm. Sl6.OO a month was the most
      he paid to any of his men, and while I was the youngest yet I did
      the same work the older men did. When 17 I commenced  to
      learn the painters trade. Worked at it a year. When 18 drove an
      ox team of 2 yoke  for my father into Mapelo County, Iowa and
      during the winter hauled rail for my uncle. The distance was 12
      miles. Had to start very early. Got home late at night. Sometimes
      I wag almost  frozen. Returned co  Clark County, Ill. and worked
      one year on a farm for a Mr. George POTTER, for Sl3.OO a month.
      At this time there was great excitement  in both north and south,
      and in April l86l Fort Sumpter was fired upon by the rebels. When
      it was known that Sumpter was taken, the war fever raged in the
      north. A company was enlisted in our county town, Marshal. When
      Sumpter fell I went to Marshal, a distance of l2 miles. Found a
      company being formed and was the 14th man to enlist. l3 had put
      their names down before I reached the town. The last of April we
      went in to camp at Matoon, Coles County, with a full company.
      Joined with 2 other companies which formed the 2lst Illinois
      Infantry. We remained  in camp until the first of June.  Went to
      Springfield the  middle of June. Was mustered into the U.S.
      service for three years under U.S. GRANT as, (who was) Colonel.
      Went home to help recruit the regiment. Returned the last of the
      month and on July lst l861 started for Quincy. For four years
      was marching, drilling, camping and fighting. Went into Missouri,
      Arkansas (under STEEL).  Back to Corinth,  Mississippi & up into
      Kentucky after BRAG, was in the battle of Pesigville but suffered
      no loss in our regiment, although some parts of our army suffered
      much. This was Oct. 2. Went to Nashville, camped until Dec. 26.
      Started under Gen. ROSECRANS to Murfresborough 22 miles south of
      Nashville where Gen BRAG with 4O,OOO rebels were stationed. We had
      about the  same number of men. We encountered their outposts the
      evening of the 3Oth. Our regiment and the 15th Wisconsin charged
      a battery which was supported by a brigade of Rebels. We reached
      the battery, but were driven back with heavy loss, several men
      killed in our company, lost 2OO men killed and wounded in our
      regiment in 2O min. The next day, Dec. 3lst, the battle opened at
      daybreak. We were driven back 3 miles, but at noon was reinforced
      with fresh troops and drove the enemy back. On the 2nd of Jan '63
      they charged us, and were driven back with heavy loss.  They then
      gave up Murfresborough and went south to Chatanoga.  We remained
      in Murfresborough till August. In March I received a commission
      at first Lieutenant Col. 79th Illinois Infantry in which regiment
      I served until the war ended.

       Was in the battle of Liberty Gap & Chickamagua, Ga. Sept. l9th &
       2Oth.  At Stone River or Murfresborough we lost, out of the
       regiment I was in, 3O4 men, one more than half that went into the
       fight. At Chickamagua in the 2 days battle we lost more than half
       our regiment, killed, wounded and captured.  We gained Chatanooga
       but was  shut in there until the last of  Nov. when the battle of
       Lookout Mt. and Missionary Ridge were fought. I commanded my own
       company and Co. A. in the battle at Missionary Ridge. After the
       battle  we marched through snow and sleet to Knoxville in East
       Tenn. Wet and cold at night and wading through slush, we marched
       75 miles  to find that LONGSTREET had attacked Burnside and been
       whipped. We remained in East Tenn. during the winter. Returned to
       Chatanooga and started on the Atlanta campaign in May 1864. Was
       in the battle  Rocky Face Ridge - May  l4 - when my  brother Colonel
       Allen BUCKNER who led the charge was severely wounded. Was in
       severel skirmishes and 3 hard battles in the 1OO days march to
       Atlanta-Resacka, the charge over Kenasaw Mountain and Peach Tree
       Creek were  all hard  battles.  At Resacka and Kenasaw we  were
       repulsed, but repulsed HOOD at Peach Tree after the fall  of
       Atlanta. Marched back toward Nashville to prevent HOOD's army going
       north.  Was captured at the battle of Franklin last of Nov. '64.
       Taken south, finally landing at Andersonville prison on Christmas
       day Dec. '64 where we suffered  untold misery. Was  released and
       reached our lines Mar. 25 l865. In hospital 3O days. Went to
       St. Louis. Was sick there in Everet hotel 3O days, then went to
       join my regiment at Nashville was mustered in as Capt. of my
       company. Was mustered out of the service at Springfield, Ill.
       Reached home July 1st, l865.
