I recently determined that I was a descendent of Joseph Butler + Elizabeth Burley through his son Benjamin Butler (who helped found Mt. Vernon, and then through his son, Joseph K. Butler who married Mary Polly Biggs and settled in New Castle across the county line in Coshocton Co. I would be interested in exchanging information and research with any relatives or descendents connected to him or his children: sons (James, John, Joseph, Isaac, Thomas, Benjamin), daughters ??Joseph had a brother, Thomas Butler who is reported to spent some time in Holmes CO., eventually settling in the Gallia, OH area.Some other Butler's reported in early Holmes Co. may Thomas's (br. of Joseph Sr.)children.
Joseph's grandson John Butler (Jr.) settled in Holmes Co. in Killbuck Twp.Joseph's son James Butler had land in Holmes Co.THere may be other connections.
I have an original copy of the 1862 History of Knox Co. by Norton which has some first hand accounts and even a good drawing of Ben Butler. --Scott Butler
