NoteGeorge is in Odessa Township, Ionia County, Michigan, at the time of the 1900 census and is a blacksmith. It appears that he is divorced. He has with him his 6 year old daughter shown as Okel born in May of 1894. With them is a cousin, Esther Buckborough, age 29, shown as a housekeeper. She was born in Canada in May of 1871 and appears to be the daughter of George Buckberrough and Martha Bates who were at Windham at the time of the 1881 census. In 1881, Esther's age is given as 12. (See marriage notes for George and Edith.)

George Buckberrough and his wife Edith have not been found in the 1910 U.S. census. (See notes for Edith Malcolm for something of her story. George is with his brother, John Buckberrough, in San Joaquin County, California, at the time of the 1920 census. George 'Buckburrow' is in San Joaquin County in 1930 and by now has given up blacksmithing and is raising poultry. He is three households away from Oakel and Wyatt Person. In the 1940 census, he is still raising poultry and is next door to Oakel and Wyatt.

George W. Buckberrough died January 19, 1944, in Stockton, San Joaquin County. An image of his death registration is provided by and is to be found on their reel entitled 1944/Certificate of Death/San Joaquin Co/Jan-June/1-685, and it reads:

Registrar's number 102. George W. Buckborough

A list of cemeteries for San Joaquin County has been examined on Find-a-Grave and just which this cemetery might be is unclear.

There is a marriage record for a Samuel Buckburrow in Temiskaming in 1922. He gives his parentage as G. Buckburrow and Edith Malcolm. He married a widow Alice Smith, maiden name Dunn.

The evidence is circumstantial, but we must hold this registration suspect. It's almost certainly a marriage for Siegel. The marriage for 'Samuel' is shown below, but see notes under Siegel.
