1908 "Fred Buzzell and Geo. Caldwell of north of Bryant were trading in Yuma this week."  That might be Fred Ecord, and the paper was incorrect.

1908 Yuma "Our ball player, Buzzell, arrived the middle of the week with his car of goods."

1910 Kate Buzzell was delinquent on taxes on improvements in the northeast quarter of 30, 5N 48W, and that quarter was claimed in 1914 by William B. Clark.  So Kate must have relinquished her claim.
