More about this marker. The following is an excerpt
"At the special meeting of the Smith School Parent-Teacher association, held Thursday afternoon at the school, it was decided to erect a memorial marker on the school premises.
The marker will be known as the Smith-Buckstaff marker in tribute to the man whose name the school bears and who gave the property on which the school now stands, and in honor of another pioneer, whose heirs-at-law provided the property adjoining the original grounds, to be used as recreational space.
The marker will be placed at the boundary line of the two tracts of land....
The executive committee of the organization will confer with members of the Winnebago County Archeological and Historical society, which is cooperating in securing the marker."
