1880, 7 June Census, Jefferson Co, Al

1891, 25 July, Confederate Pension Application: ...stating he was a private in Co. B of the 33 Reg't of the Ala. Calvary, and contracted a disease which caused him to lose his sight. At that time, he didn't have more than $400 worth of taxable property and his gross income was less than $400.

1896 (May) Pension Application, Blount Co, Al: RC BuckAlew appears, stating he had served as a Pvt. in Co. B of the 33 Reg't, Calvary (Confederate). In 1867, by exposure, lost his eyesight, and now is totally blind. His P.O. is Warrior, Al, Blount Co.(now Jefferson Co.). He is not engaged in any business, and has no taxable property. BOard of examiners recommended the application be received on 1 June 1896.

1898 (31 May) Blind Application (for Relief of Blind Soldiers), Blount Co, Al: R.C. BuckElew appears stating that because of physical disability, he couldn't appear before the Probate Judge to make application for relief of needy Confederate soldiers. Information in this application duplicated that of the 1896 record.

Mary's People by Gerry Green: Restlessness seems to have been a trait all of James and Rebecca Buckelew's sons shared. They moved until they died OR were not in good enough physical condition to make a new beginning. Richard C. Buckelew was no exception. After his return from the Civil War, he and Rebecca and their kids left Coffee Co, Al, and returned to Montgomery, but they weren't settled yet. Eighteen seventy-five, apparently, finds them in Jefferson, still trying to fulfill their "Impossible Dream," and still daring to hope it really could happen.
