Friday's Faces From the Past ~ Grandma Nancy Buck's Photo Album




Continuing with the mysterious contents of Ann "Nancy" Stafford Buck's photo album, I thought it might be helpful to state some facts about her.

These are the only two photos I have of her. According to the 1900, 1910, and 1920 census she immigrated in 1899, but I have not been able to find a passenger list yet.  I am going to go google for a minute. Be right back.

Will wonders never cease! I just found her passenger list on Ancestry.com! No wonder I had a hard time finding it.  She sailed out of Glasgow, Scotland! Did not see that coming at all.

Source Information: Ancestry.com. UK, Outward Passenger Lists, 1890-1960 
[database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2012.

Since grandma Nancy left England in 1899, I think it's safe to say that the Nottingham photos in the album were taken before June of that year.

The photo I want to share today is actually one that was taken in the U.S, probably Utah.


This photo was developed in Ogden, Utah. On the backside is an ink stamp that is only half legible. It says "GENIE XXXXLEOX PRINT"  new line "xxxxxxDRUG Co. Ogden, Utah"   Where the xxx represents printing that cannot be deciphered.

I think it is very possible that this is a family gathering of some of grandma Nancy's descendants, but which ones?

There were quite a few Buck family members living in Weber County, Utah. These include William Henry and Flora Buck (they were 2nd cousins) family, Luther and Sarah Powell Buck family, and William and Sybil Agnes Buck March may have been in Utah the time of the photo.

So I'm calling all Buck family members for help in identifying these folks.

  1. It is great that you found her immigration information. You were unable to find her on a passenger list until you searched Google; is that right? I've never used Google for that purpose. What search parameters did you use?

    1. Oh, I actually didn't find it on Google. I started searching on Google then I moved to Ancestry.com. That passenger list didn't mention their arrival, but using the name of the ship I was able to find a snippet of the answer to that question using Google. It brought up a paragraph from The Millennial Star on Google books.
