Elder William Buckley was born in Virginia, Frederick county, July the 9th, 1772; baptized in Henry county, by elders James Ray; moved to Kentucky in October, 1794, and at present residence in Franklin county; he was ordained by elders George Smith, and William Hickman, sr. After receiving holy orders he took the oversight of Glen's-creek church in Woodford county, and, still continues to minister to them in word and doctrine. Mr. Buckley is an evangelical minister, and has a number of lovely traits in his character. He, like a number of our preachers in Kentucky, has to labor hard on his farm for the support of himself and family.
* Mr. Buckley has made a declaration of his principles, and of his intentions, to leave his former fociety, but at present he is with them.
