Edward Butler is the first Butler to be listed in Breckinridge Co., KY Tax Records beginning in 1800. The 1830 census for Breckinridge Co., KY lists Edward as 70 80 years old. This would make him at an age where he could be the brother of James Butler, Sr.

If you have any data on Our Butler Family we would like to hear from you. Details on this family are sketchy at best.  In the 1830 census there is an elderly couple living in the home of Nathaniel Aldridge and his wife Mary Butler Aldridge. We do not know if it is the parents of Nathaniel or if they could be James Butler and his wife.
