Walter Butler1,2

b. August 1767, d. 24 April 1833
     Walter Butler was born in August 1767 in Province of New York.3,1,2,4 He married Eunice Greeley, daughter of Zaccheus Greeley and Hester Senter, in April 1800.5,1,4 Walter Butler died on 24 April 1833 in Girard Township, Erie County, Pennsylvania, at age 65. Florence Fox Harrop listed his death place as Springboro, PA but the 1830 census and location of his grave point to Girard Township as the more likely location.3,6,1,4 He was buried in Daggett Cemetery, Fairview, Erie County, Pennsylvania, The Daggett Cemetery was just east of the Erie County Home and he was buried with his wife and children Esther and Myron. Philip Fox had stone reset in the 1940's. In 1976, the Jaycees took all the remaining headstones from the then deserted cemetery and placed them in a masonry platform. The stones of Walter and Eunice are present, but the ones for their children are not. The Erie County Home is now called Pleasant Ridge Manor and is on state route 20 just west of Fairview, PA.7,8
     Walter probably settled in the Weston, VT area around 1795. He and his brother John were land speculators as evidenced by their names appearing as buyers or sellers on the deeds of 41 parcels of land in the area between 1795 and 1806.2 He appeared on the census of 1810 in Onondaga County, New York. The household consisted of 3 males under 10, 1 male 20-44, 2 females under 10 and 1 female 20-44.9 He appeared on the census of 1830 in Fairview, Erie County, Pennsylvania. The household included 1 male 5-10, 1 10-15, 1 15-20 and 1 60-70; 1 female under 5, 1 15-20, and 1 50-60.10

Compiler's note: Florence Fox Harrop worked very hard to link this Walter Butler who is the ancestor of our family to Lieutenant Walter Butler. Although she sent letters and documents to other family members about other possible lines, most of the material that remains in her collected papers shows both Walters with a couple of generations of question marks between them. This compiler has not been able to find any evidence that links the two families, other than the similarity in names, though evidence that links our Walter to any other family is also lacking.

Eunice Greeley1,2

b. 16 April 1777, d. 26 August 1847
     Eunice Greeley was born on 16 April 1777 in Province of New Hampshire.1,3,2,4,5 She was the daughter of Zaccheus Greeley and Hester Senter.1,2,4 Eunice Greeley married Walter Butler in April 1800.2,6,5 Eunice Greeley died on 26 August 1847 in Spring Township, Crawford County, Pennsylvania, at age 70.2,3,4,5 She was buried in Daggett Cemetery, Fairview, Erie County, Pennsylvania, She was buried in old cemetery east of the Erie County Home with her husband and children Esther and Myron. Philip Fox had stone reset in the 1940's. In 1976, the Jaycees took all the remaining headstones from the then deserted cemetery and placed them in a masonry platform. The stones of Walter and Eunice are present, but the ones for their children are not. The Erie County Home is now called Pleasant Ridge Manor and is on state route 20 just west of Fairview, PA.7,8
     Many sources of Greeley genealogy have Eunice's parents as Nathaniel and Lydia Cram. Florence Fox Harrop stated in a letter to her brother Philip Fox that she had a bible record to prove that Zaccheus was actually her father. The discrepancy of birthdates with Bridget is unsolved - perhaps Bridget was the daughter of Nathaniel and Lydia.

In addition, a letter from S.M. Fox to Ethel Lillian Snow in 1932 speaks of Esther Butler remembering her father telling her that he was the first cousin of Horace Greeley.1,2

Horace Greeley was a feeble, sickly child and often under medical treatment.

Horace only received irregular schooling, which ended at the age of 14. When his parents moved to Pennsylvania, he stayed behind. He apprenticed to the editor of the Northern Spectator in East Pultney, Vt. He remained there until 1830, when he rejoined his family and found work temporarily in a newspaper office in Erie, Pennsylvania.

At the age of 20, Horace went to New York, arriving Aug 17, 1831. On March 22, 1834, his New Yorker was born, and in 1838, he was made the editor of the Jeffersonian. In 1840, Horace published another weekly, the Log Cabin. April 10, 1841, his long-cherished dream came true when the New York Tribune hit the streets.

As time went on, Horace took an increasingly active interest in politics. He championed a liberal Whiggism that emphasized protection, internal improvement, justice to the foreign-born, and opposition to the Mexican War and to slavery expansion. Horace Greeley was one of the founding fathers of the Republican Party in 1856.

On June 1, 1859 Horace was riding the Levenworth and Pike's Peak express stage on his way to Denver, Colorado to prepare a report on the Colorado Gold Rush, when the stagecoach mules were startled by Indians. The mules bolted down a steep grade with the stagecoach on its side. Though badly bruised, Horace sill arrived in Denver in time for the largest gold strike in Colorado. In 1870, Greeley, Colorado was named in honor of Horace Greeley by his agriculture editor, Nathan Meeker.

In 1872, Horace was nominated for the Presidency by the Liberal Republicans. Horace lost to President Grand in a landslide victory, and died shortly thereafter.4
