Samuel Buckley's son, William, settled in Cleveland, Ohio, and in the 1870s-1880s worked at the Brush Electric Company. He later worked at the Cowles Electric Smelting Company. The collection consists of a certificate of citizenship, correspondence, and newspaper clippings. Included is John Buckley's correspondence relating the attack by Indian mutineers on the Delhi, India British magazine and the massacre of his family in 1857.
