Norman Butterfield, 143rd PA Inf, Civil War
Posted by: Patty Matthews (ID *****1133) Date: January 05, 2007 at 10:25:46
  of 1751

I'm looking for the burial location of Norman Butterfield, 1841-1905. Norman served in the 143rd PA Inf, and the 24th Reserves during the Civil War and was said to have been one of the guards over Lincoln's body.

He was married to Sarah Amelia MOSS. They had several children, three of whom were Leona Mary, Frank M. and Susie. For the most part, they resided in New Milford, Susquehanna Co., PA.

As per the 1900 census, Amelia (Sarah) is listed as a widow, but Norman was alive and well and living in Ogle Co., ILL.

I don't know if he died in PA or IL, or where he is buried.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
