SQUIRE H. BUTLER was born in Coshocton county, Ohio, Nov. 9, 1818. His father, Jonathan Butler, was born in Old Virginia, in 1790; he received his early education in the district schools of that state. At the age off twenty-one he was married to Miss Elizabeth, daughter of Ezra Horton, Esq., formerly of Ohio, Mr. Butler having removed from Virginia to that state. His business was that of a farmer. He had a family of eleven children, of whom the subject of this sketch is the fourth, and the only one now living. In 1839 Jonathan Butler moved to Schuyler county, and in August of the same year he moved to Fulton county, Illinois. There he purchased a farm and engaged in agricultural pursuits and stock raising; he died at his residence in March, 1867; his wife is still living at the old homestead. Squire H. Butler received his early schooling in Coshocton county, Ohio, and his boyhood days were spent on the farm with his father. He came, with his parents, to Illinois, in 1839, and, on arriving at the age of twenty-one, he was married to Miss Mary J. Rose, daughter of Samuel Rose, Esq., of Coshocton county, Ohio. The fruits of this union was a family of two children, a son and a daughter. In the year 1851 he purchased a farm in Hickory township, Schuyler county, where he is now residing. His son is married and settled on a farm near the old homestead. His daughter is deceased. Mr. Butler's vocation is that of a farmer, stock raiser, and honey producer. Few, if any, surpass him in the production of "bees and honey", in the county, as by his genius and long experience he seems to have reduced the business to a science. His farm is located in the fertile and beautiful valley of the Illinois River, near Bluff City. Politically, he was a war democrat, and is now an adherent to the policy of the Jefferson and Jackson democracy
