I came across your message and showed it to an Aunt of mine who comes from Crusheen.
She wrote this down for me.
The Butler family were very prominent and wealthy. They owned several estates and houses in Clare and Galway. they were landlords and what was unusual that they were Roman Catholics. They had property in Garlic Hill, Ballyline,Doon, Walterstown and two smaller houses Boscorbal and Cloone House. Just over the Galway border there was Cregg,Bunnaher and Castlecrine in Sixmilebridge. There are tomb stones in Quin Abbey out side Ennis in Co.Clare.
