In Reply to: Colonel John Butler (American Revolution) by Anthony McPherson of 18095

I am not related, just sharing. I found the following which may be helpful. I could not find anything in the DAR file for Phoebe's father, John.

I found one researcher's file online that shows Phoebe as a daugher of John Butler. No mention was made of his military service.

Here is a very old message:

June 9, 1998 John Le Garignon <john.legarignon@justice.x400.gc.ca> I am looking for any information on William KENNEDY and/or Mary BUTLER (around 1750-1780). The reasons I am looking for this information in New London County is two fold. First my ancestors William and Mary published their intention to marry on December 8, 1762 in Boston, Suffolk Co. Mass (in the presence of a relative of Mary by the name of John Butler) but they married out of town as the marriage was not recorded per say; only one publication seems to indicate a contract of marriage around 1770; they then went to Connecticut if one source (an historical publication about the Gaspe Coast, Quebec, Canada) is right in saying that my ancestor, their son Isaac, was born in Connecticut. (This is my first clue). Second clue: Before emigrating to Canada in 1782 or 1783, they were living in Tryon Co., NY in the Johnstown-Albany area where one finds that John Butler (born in New London) lived for most of his life. Is it the same John Butler? If it is the same John Butler how is he related to Mary? I don't know but would like to find out. If anyone is so kind as to provide me with details about their origin, I would share any information I have on their descendants here in Canada. Thank you and God bless!
Perhaps Mary is Phoebe's sister:
