9/12/1918 was when Buell registered for the draft. He verified his birth date and gave his address as Dalton City, (Moultrie Co), IL. He was a self employed farmer and gave his mother, Laura May Knight, as nearest relative, also in Dalton City. His physical attributes were recorded as medium height, slender build, with blue eyes and brown hair.
Buell's death was attributed to pneumonia.
His address was included in an out-of-town guest list at a family
wedding and again in 1927.
Powell relatives visited him in Princeton on their trip west.
