Hi, I am looking for information about the Butler family in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. My father Norman David Butler Jr. was born there to Eva and Norman David Butler Sr. I am just starting out tracing my ancestors, and would like any information anyone can provide. N.D. Butler Sr. was a Baptist preacher in Southern Oklahoma and had been married several times. My aunts and uncles have passed on and I am not able to ask them any questions. Thank you for any information I receive.
All of my Butlers came over from England. Henry Atkinson Butler came over around 1869 and the family said he came into Savannah, Georgia, although no ships came directly from England to any places other than New York, I think. I have tried to find his parents in England but it is very hard when you do not know their names. I think our ancestors came from every country. Henry came over with two brothers, William and Thomas. Thomas died on a ship going back to England and supposedly William remained in New York but I can't verify this. Ancestry.com is the best bet to find any of your relatives if you know enough information to enter the names, etc. I anyone knows anything about these three names, I would appreciate the information.
I am looking for some further information on my relative Christopher Butler born 1724 in North Carolina. I have hit a "wall" and I cannot find any more information about him or his parents. Anyone got any help or ideas?
I am a Butler maternally; my mother's maiden name was Butler. She was born in New Castle, Indiana, USA in 1928 and died in 2011. Her father was William Harrison Butler (1890-1963; born Spring City, TN). His father was George Washington Butler. That's the furthest back I can go. Any help appreciated.
