I recently determined that I was a descendent of Benjamin Butler (who helped found Mt. Vernon) 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, his wife (Leah Rogers), brothers (James, John, Joseph, Isaac, Thomas), father (Joseph Butler, Sr.), etc.
I have an original copy of the 1862 History of Knox Co. by Norton which has considerable first hand accounts and even a good drawing of Ben Butler. --Scott Butler
