Rev John Butler, of Windsor Nova Scotia
comments powered by
I seek information concerning the family of a Rev. John Butler of Windsor, Nova Scotia.
His youngest daughter Clara Butler married Robert Ruickbie on December 24, 1881 in St Johns, Newfoundland - according to a wedding announcement published in a local paper at that time.
Clara was described as, a spinster at 29 years of age, and the youngest daughter of the late Rev. John Butler.
The 1901 Census of Canada has Clara, Robert, and family living in Toronto, Ontario. Her listed birth date shows March 20, 1853.
So obviously John died after June 1852 and before December 1881.
That’s all I’ve got to work with, and I do realize it’s more than a bit thin.
I’ve beat the Newfoundland and Nova Scotia on-line stuff to death – Nix!
But perhaps there is someone out there that has knowledge of this family.
I’d be more than happy to share what I have on Clara and Robert’s line forward in time.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
