Robert married Bridget Fahey on the 28th October 1817 at All Saints, Newcastle. He was a witness at the wedding of John Champlay, my 3X great-grandfathers wedding at the same church in 1824. Bridget Buckless died in 1842, her death is recorded in our family Bible,i think she was John's cousin. Robert Buckless died Northumberland in 1846 at 70 years.
