Benjamin Butler in 1865
The problem with the 1865 Illinois State Census enumeration is that age categories are all that is listed.
Moving around seems to be the norm for Benjamin. We'll revisit Benjamin in a future of Casefile Clues, hopefully by the end of November. We've also found his apparent second marriage on Beta FamilySearch. And that's the one fly in the ointment. His 1864 marriage is several states away. If all these records are him. Subscribe and see how reasonable the case is. We'll also have citations to all the documents used as well.
