Ill. The wife of Mrs. B. F. Butler has been severely ill for the past two weeks, of typhoid fever, and at one time it was thought that her life was in danger. It is gratifying to state that she is now somewhat improved, but still very ill. In consequence, Mr. Butler has been unable to attend to his extensive business, to the detriment of his own interests and those of his customers. (Bodie Weekly Standard, 11/20/1878)

A Long Rest. Mrs. Ben. F. Butler, after a long and painful illness on Sunday evening at about 5 o'clock breathed her last. Not even the assiduous and unremitting care of a devoted husband could stay the dreadful coming of the end of all mortals. Deceased was among those who on earth were beloved of all who knew them, and we sincerely hope that a greater happiness than can come to any of us may await her in the great hereafter. Mrs. Butler was a native of Illinois, where she was born November 24th, 1848, and was consequently 30 years of age. A large circle of friends unite in heartfelt sympathy with the bereaved husband and four beautiful children. May the green sod rest lightly upon her breast and in after time unite the family now so mournfully separated. (Bodie Standard, 11/27/1878)

Wife of B. F. Butler. Her obituary states that she was mourned by a large group of friends when she passed away after a long illness.

Epitaph reads: "Thus star by star declined, Till all are passed away, As morning high and higher shines, To pure and perfect day."
