It discusses the probate file for Benjamn Butler in Vernon County, Missouri, in the 1880s. We've discussed Benjamin before in Casefile Clues--using indirect proof to connect him to his daughter Ellen who married in 1870 and tracing him from Iowa in 1870 to southern Missouri in 1880.
His probate contains few direct genealogical details. However, it allows us to:
- connect the Iowa Benjamin Butler to the Missouri Benjamin Butler
- better establish Benjamin's moves
- determine additional records to research
