I am looking for information on the Butler family that includes Elijah, Nathaniel and William M. Butler. Elijah married Lydia Fifield and was a doctor practicing medicine in Weare, New Hampshire. Nathaniel F. (might stand for Fifield) was born in New Hampshire 7 August 1795. He married a woman named Rachel. They had at least 3 children that I am aware of, all born in New York (probably Jefferson County). By the 1840s they were living in Chicago. I believe that their son was William Moulton Butler, who lived in Chicago and married twice: Celia Temperance Bliss and Elizabeth Johnston. In the 1870s he moved his family to Hobart in Lake County, Indiana, where he died in 1895. I do not have conclusive proof that Nathaniel was William's father, although William did live with him in Chicago. Any help in ironing out this line is greatly appreciated!
