Levi Butler

This Levi Butler, b. 1775 in Fitzwilliam, NH, is my great-great-great grandfather. My great-great grandfather was Timothy Wooden Butler, b. 1815 in Schuyler, Herkimer, NY. My great-great grandfather was Levi W. Butler, b. 1841 in Venango, PA. My grandfather was Clyde A. Butler, b. 1880 in Nebraska.

I think there's an error in the caption with this photo: Whitestown is in Massachusetts, and not in Oneida, NY. I believe Whitestown is near Leominster, MA. The father of this Levi Butler was James Butler, who lived near Lancaster, MA. His father, also named James Butler, first settled in Lancaster in the 1640s and purchased land known as Lot 39, east of the Still River, which was just a little southeast of Lancaster, MA.

Whitestown

Turns out that Whitestown is in Oneida County, NY. It's an historic town just west of Utica, NY.
