John L. Buck, father of John H. Buck, was long a respected member of the Niagara county bar. He was a native of Reading, Vt., and was born in 1801. After studying law he was admitted to practice in 1825. In 1851 he settled in Lockport, and by his natural and acquired qualifications for his profession he soon gained a large practice. In 1853 he was elected district attorney and filled the office with distinction. He served as a member of the Board of Education twelve years and for several years was a United States commissioner. His death took place in 1880, while associated with his son, John H. Buck, in law practice.
