James T. Butler J W Pendergast, photographer - Danville, Ind
1858 - 1910
James T. Butler was the son of Thomas and Mary S. (Myers) who was born in Indiana in June of 1858. He was enumerated in the 1870 census residing one household away from the Abraham and Sarah (Stratton) Fox household in Washington Twp., Putnam Co., Indiana. On either side of the Butler residence, lived the Bond families. David, the son of Austin Bond, was married to James' sister, Mary Elizabeth Butler. On the other side of the Butler's lived Austin Bond, the father of David who at the time of the census was married to his 2nd wife, Sarah (Girton) who was the aunt of Laura J. Girton, wife of Albert Byron Fox, and thus the daughter-in-law of Sarah (Stratton) Fox. Thus, the relation of James T. Butler to the Stratton-Fox family.

In 1880 James T. Butler was listed as a Druggist residing in Reelsville, the same area where the Sarah Fox family resided. On the 26th of November, 1883, he married Miss Hester Ann McCullough in Putnam Co., Indiana, she being the daughter of West and Rachel J. (Paul) McCullough and had been born 09 Sep 1864. They moved to Kansas where in 1900 they were living in Fall Twp., Chase Co., Kansas where James continued to practice law. According to the census, they were the parents of seven children, though only three were living at the time: Lona, Paul & Fay.

Not long after the death of his wife, Hester Ann, on 13 May 1903, James was married to a woman by the name of Mary H., who appeared with him and his son Paul in the 1910 census then living in Guymon Twp., Texas Co., Oklahoma. James died in 1922 and was laid to rest at Prairie Grove Cemetery in Cottonwood Falls, Chase Co., Kansas where Hester and his parents are also buried.

Note: According to his obituary, the photographer, J.W. Pendergast, was born and reared in Indianapolis; and until 1918 was a photographer.
