Seeking Information Regarding Butlers/Bretons in Canada & Maine
Posted by: Edmond Marchetti (ID *****8010) Date: March 29, 2012 at 04:25:30

I am afraid that I have reached a wall in my research regarding the Butler/Breton side of my family. What I have been able to establish so far is that my great-grandfather was George Butler (born around 1885) who married Amanda Paradis and lived in Maine. George’s parents were Felix (abt 1860) and Mary Butler (also abt 1860) from Canada (French), who at some point (probably early in their lives) migrated to Maine. I am seeing the town of Rockwood mentioned, as well as a Fairfield and various spots of Somerset County, Maine.

I have been told by family that the Butler’s were called Breton due to being English in a French Canadian area, also it appears that Felix’s mother or grandmother was an indigenous woman. I am looking for any information on this family, especially the names and localities of Felix’s parents.
