      I am looking for information to track the history of a recently acquired 35″ Buckeye Bell-1880. I have basic information about the Buckeye foundry but would love trace the exact history the of bell.

      Dear djlongenecker,

      When you say you are looking for information to track the history of a bell, I presume you are looking for the previous owners of your bell and the specific locations in which it has hung. The American Bell Association does not have such information. A bell foundry may have records of to whom they sold their bells but I know of no other source that would have ownership records. Perhaps other members of the forum might have suggestions.

      Sorry,

      Admin (Carolyn)

      All Buckeye records previous to 1937 were destroyed in a flood that year. Unless you can locate a former owner who might have information you are probably out of luck.
