EBER AND WILLIAM BUCKWALTER
Eber and William Buckwalter came to Iranistan from Philadelphia early in 1853. They took up their quarters at the residence of W. C. Croft, the blacksmith, they being both single men. They had no settled occupation, but kept hotel, farmed and carried passengers to Council Bluffs. They went to Nebraska in 1858.
