I am trying to find more info on the Francis Butler family. He was born in Ontario according to the 1881 census. His wife was Anna Bell, supposedly born in Germany (43 yrs. old in 1881). They were living in Morrisburg and had 8 children in 1881: Charley(15), Jane(13), Frances(12), Francis(9), Matilda(7), Matthew(6), John(3) and Henry(1). I know they had at least one more son (William born about 1884). The family emigrated to northern New York (Potsdam-Canton area) around 1888. Does anyone know who Francis' parents were? He would have been born around 1832 (not sure where in Ontario). Since he claims to be of Irish origin, I assume his parents immigrated from Ireland some time before he was born.
