John Riley Butler
Birth: Jan. 29, 1846
Tennessee, USA
Death: Apr. 2, 1929
Montgomery County
Illinois, USA

7th Tennessee Cavalry, private, Co I, enlisted for 3 years in Carroll Co, TN on 9/15/62 and mustered at Union City, TN on 12/15/63 at about age 17 (b. 1/29/46). He furnished his own horse and equipment. Butler was in the hospital in May and June of 1864 which means he was not captured at Union City, TN with the regiment and did not go to Anderson ville Prison. He was "classified as deserted," however. After the war he moved to Montgomery Co, IL. where he applied for a pension in 1929 but it was denied. He was, however, discharged honorably by a special act of the 70th US Congress. Butler died on 4/2/1929 and is buried in the Casey Cemetery, Fillmore Township, Montgomery Co, IL. His second wife was Louisa McCaslin Butler. His parents appear to have been William Solomon and Temperance McCord Butler.
