1880 Census for Benjamin Butler Probate Players
Another good idea for the individuals involved in the Benjamin Butler probate would be to find them in the 1880 census, a few years before the estate was probated. As mentioned in the article, the administrator and two of the lawyers might have had some potential relationship to or with the Butler family. The administrator, for reasons discussed in issue 10, probably is where the research should begin.
