George W. Butler's Death Certificate

This is part of the actual image of the death certificate for George W. Butler (the Michigan George), which was included in a comment from a reader (thanks!).

The certificate agrees with the transcription on FamilySearch--which was used in issue 23 of Casefile Clues.

What I thought was slightly amusing was that his sex was spelled "Mail. "

Readers will note that the date of birth is 13 June 1848 in Michigan. I'm inclined to think he was actually born in New York, but readers will remember that the real goal of the research on this George was just to distinguish him from another George and make certain that the correct father had been located.

Subscribe today and I'll start you off with issue 23 from Volume 2 which separates out the two Georges.
More discoveries are on the way. Stay tuned.
