Name: JOSIAH Buckbee
President of the State Bank of Fenton, was born at SAND LAKE, RENSSELAER COUNTY, New York, May 22, 1822. His parents, Tobias and Roxana (Adams) Buckbee, were natives of New York, and of English descent. Both his grandfathers were Revolutionary soldiers. In his infancy, the family removed to Geneva, Ontario County; and, five years later, to Clyde, Wayne County. There Mr. Buckbee met with an irreparable loss in the death of his mother. He attended the common schools until sixteen years old, and then became a tailor's apprentice in Seneca Falls. After working there four years, he entered into partnership with his employer, but remained in that connection only two years. In 1845 he established a clothing store in Redwood, Jefferson County. After two years of prosperity, he opened a store of general merchandise. In 1856 he came to Fenton, Michigan, and engaged in the dry-goods, grocery, and produce trade. At the end of eight years, he abandoned the produce traffic; and, in 1872, after sixteen years of successful business, he sold the entire establishment, and devoted his attention to banking. In January of the previous year, he organized the State Bank of Fenton, with a capital of fifty thousand dollars, and became its President, which position he still retains. In 1870-71 he was President of the village; and, for the past twelve years, has been a member of the School Board. In 1860 he joined the Masonic Fraternity; and, in 1872, was elected Commander of Fenton Commandery, No. 14, an office he has held ever since. In politics, he was first an old-line Whig; and, under Fillmore's administration, was appointed Postmaster at Redwood, Jefferson County, New York. He afterwards became a Silver-gray Whig. In 1864 he voted for George B. McClellan, and has since been a member of the Democratic party. Mr. Buckbee married, August 23, 1849, Miss Lydia C. Simons, daughter of Ralph Simons, of Redwood, New York. Although there have been many changes in Mr. Buckbee's life, they have not been those of principle or purpose, but of place, for better vantage ground; and the success which has attended him shows that they were the result, not of caprice, but of wise judgment. His career is peculiar in having been one of continuous thrift. Most men spend half their days in toiling to remove or surmount obstacles to find an avenue to prosperity, but Mr. Buckbee seems gifted with a rare perception,--enabling him to avoid every hinderance, and directing him at once to fortune. Physically, he is of middle stature, with dark eyes, gray hair, and a nervous, excitable temperament. With friends, he is social; and, in both public and private life, has evinced virtues that have earned for him a high place in the esteem of the community in which he dwells.

Minerva S. Buckbee Hummer:

I believe that George Buckbee and Minerva (Buckbee) Hummer may be siblings -- both born in Sand Lake, Rensselaer Co., NY, children of Ezra Buckbee.The Josiah Buckbee is noted as born in Sand Lake, son of Tobias Buckbee.
I have been told that there are pictures in the Oakland County Pioneer and Historical Society of Tompkins, Sarah, Valleda, Almead, Josiah, Liddie, Edith and Tobias Buckbee but have not seen them.
