The Benjamin Bucklin Papers

Bucklin Collection encompasses several important categories of documents, such as certificates, legal papers and newspaper clippings arranged alphabetically by subject filing system.

Joseph Bucklin 4th did not pass away until 1790 – this could explain why his name wasn’t included among those honored for attacking the British armed schooner during the 1772 Gaspee raid parades of Bristol on 4th of July.

Early Life and Education

Joseph Bucklin became well-known among early settlers in America for firing the first intentional shot against English military, setting in motion what later became known as “America’s First Blow for Freedom”. Rhode Island honors this event by commemorating it annually.

His firing of a musket played an instrumental role in an American victory over British troops known as Nine Men’s Misery. Being such an energetic and virtue-oriented individual led to him being appointed one of Rehoboth’s town troopers.

His large size and double row of teeth made him immediately identifiable, and he was later buried at the site of a massacre. Many believe his spirit still haunts the grave; many claim hearing cries coming from within or even seeing an enormous face with two rows of teeth grinding their jaws together in pain.

Professional Career

Bucklin initially took note of Verlander’s meeting with suspicion; there are often stories involving sports celebrities and TV personalities gathering for interviews that turn out not to be serious.

Bucklin became intrigued with Verlander after learning his passion for baseball was strong.

Achievement and Honors

The papers associated with Nathan Bucklin, Robert Eben and Robert Willis Bucklin cover an array of items. This collection is organized alphabetically by subject files related to Bucklin’s employment and civic activities.

Bucklin served with the Washington Volunteers during the Spanish-American War and his writing chronicles his experience aboard a troop transport ship, life in Manila and his battles against Philippine insurgents.

Scholarship winners Madeline Kelly, Morgan Tidd, Catherine Gottwalt and Parker Midura present awards while classmates Alex Brady Andrews Amelia Reinhardt watch and present awards as presenters.

Personal Life

Bucklin stood out among his peers by being independent and passionate. He spoke his mind and stood up for what he believed in, even if that meant going to court. His peers described him as being tall robust with powerful enunciation as well as sometimes withering rebuke or sarcasm.”

Bucklin was among nine others taken captive and murdered during the King Philip’s War battle known as Nine Men’s Misery by Indians, but their bodies were later recovered by burial missions and identified as Benjamin due to its unusually large size and two sets of double teeth encircling its jawline; due to being buried hunchbacked, this led to him earning the name Albigence; this would continue through generations as well.
