    I am interested in the history of Buckingham Springs. My grandmother was born there. Her maiden name was Beryl Morris. I would love to know more. I remember visiting when she still owned the farm. Is there a book I can purchase? Please contact me.
    Thanks so much. Parke Morris Baskerville (married name is Covarrubias)

      Hi Parke, My husband and I kept cattle at Buckingham Springs farm a few years back and we discovered a Morris family grave yard. I am sure if you are in the area the homeowners would be happy to have you visit.
