The only information Claud had on John's parents was that his father went to the Civil War and never returned. This information came from John D Buck himself before he died. There is no more information to be found on John's parents yet.
Here is a photo of John D Buck and Malinda Stewart Buck's daughters, (L-R) Julia, Florence, Mittie, and Ella. The other children not in the picture are Carrie & Henry (Claud's Dad) Carrie died at eleven years of age. Another daughter is Alice.
