Rev. James Monroe Buckley, D.D., LL.D., (1836-1920), b. Rahway, N.J.; "studied theology at Exeter, N.H., and became a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, in which he held a prominent position." - Allibone.

Buckley was for thirty-two years editor of the New York Christian Advocate; his patriotism for the Union cause led to his appointment to carry letters from Horace Greeley, Charles Sumner, &c. to the British Parliament in 1863; he was instrumental in the founding of the Methodist Episcopal Hospital (Brooklyn) in 1881. He was a leading opponent of female suffrage, and wrote the book The Wrong and Peril of Woman Suffrage (1909), and earned the title "Captain of Conservatives" due to his views. Buckley wrote A History of the Methodists in the United States for the American Church History Series. He was an influential leader amidst the American Methodists during his long ministry.
