Lieutenant Walter Butler1,2,3

b. circa 1690, d. after 13 March 1760
     Lieutenant Walter Butler was born circa 1690 (estimated). He was the son of Thomas Butler.1,3 Lieutenant Walter Butler married as his first wife Mary Harris, daughter of Thomas Harris and Mary Wetherell, after 26 July 1713 in New London, Connecticut Colony, The marriage intentions were published on this date.1,2 Lieutenant Walter Butler married as his second wife Deborah Ely in 1727.2,4 Lieutenant Walter Butler died after 13 March 1760 in Schenectady, Province of New York, now Schenectady County. He died in the house in the winter of 1759/1760.5,2
     He received a military appointment in the Mowhawk country in 1728 and moved his family there fourteen years later where he was Captain of the Fort.3 He was an aide of Sir William Johnson during the French and Indian War. He left a will on 13 March 1760 in Schenectady, Province of New York, now Schenectady County. In the will, he mentions the daughters Marya and Deborah of his son Walter (deceased), his sons Thomas and John and daughters Marya Vanderheyden and Anna. He does not mention any other grandchildren by name. It is likely that his son Walter did not have any other children, else he would mentioned them to pass on their father's share of his estate. This supports the conclusion that our Walter Butleris from another family.5,2 His will was proved/probated on 20 January 1763.2

Compiler's note: Florence Fox Harrop worked very hard to link the 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.
