I am looking for a connection to the Butler family as my biological father - Fred Eddie Butler (1910-1976) is involved. I do not have good information - his father was Thomas Pearl Butler (1884-1965) - Hamilton County Indiana. Thomas Pearl Butler's father was Thomas H Butler (1851-1918) buried in Arcadia Hamilton, Indiana. The mother to Thomas Pearl was Loretta Kuntz (1854-1953). I find the Thomas Butler named in the subject area was born in Roxwell, Essex, England. His father was John Butler (1585-1632) and mother was Jane Elliot (1576-1667) and married to Joann (Mount Stephens Christopher) in 1626. Thomas Butler died in Kent Island, Queen Anne's, Maryland. He and Jane were the parents to eight children: Thomas (1627-1678), Mary Jane (1629), Thomasine (1630-1702), Nathaniel (1635-1684), John (1637-1684), William (1638), Christopher (1641-1729), and JoAnn (1644). I do not even know if I am close to finding out more about the Butler clan. I can say that I am not related to any royalty. Perhaps the Butler's are from Ireland rather than England. I have been doing this for several years and have come to a stand-still on the Butler clan. For this Thomas Butler being born in England was some clue - better than what I have at the moment. This info comes from Ancestry.com - family trees of other people. This is a very confusing issue. I am told by others the Butlers were very prominent in Kilkenny, but I am sure I my ancestors are not from that family. thanks.
