I am looking for parents and relatives of my grandparents, Herman Ephriham BUTLER and Minnie Belle BUTLER (nee SCOTT). children: Margurite, Harold L, Lucille, Mildred May, Lee (LeMoine?) b. 1910, Kathryn (Katie?) L., and Jack Richard (my father). They were residents of Wabash Co in the early part of this century up to the 1950's.

Lee BUTLER and his daughters, Peggy and Candy (Candance?), moved to Santa Clara, CA sometime before 1954. Recently another cousin, Mike Lacasa, was contacted on the phone by a daughter of Lee with a last name of Anderson. She was looking for Butler relatives. I would also like to hear from this daughter or someone who knows of her. Thank you.

My uncle, Harold BUTLER, born approx 1914, was married and had a number of children, and lived in or around Wabash in the (I guess) 1940s. He subsequently moved to Oregon or Washington State (my bet is Oregon) without his family, who stayed behind. Harold's father was Herman BUTLER. I am looking for names for Harold's wife and his children. I believe Harold is deceased since 1980s. The children of Harold would be of ages around 64 yrs and up today. A Harold Butler marriage license issued in 1917 could not be my uncle's as he was only 3 at the time, but that Harold BUTLER may have been Herman's brother, whom he named his first son after - not sure about that. Thanks to all. Kerry Butler. kbutler@biztech.net
