Birth: Mar. 17, 1729
Worcester County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: 1806
Vermont, USA

Rev Asaph Butler was the father of Ezra Butler, past Governor of Vermont, who is also buried in Hope Cemetery. He was married to Jenet McAllister. They were the parents of Ezra, and Joel Butler who was a Revolutionary War soldier, as well as several other children. Asaph also served in the Revolution and is D.A.R. number 142333.

His children With Jenet are listed below with thanks to Mary Ann Bumgarner for part of this list.

Joel Butler #76621404 b. 3/31/1752
Mindwell Butler #6121250 b. 6/27/1753
Amos Butler b. 8/6/1755
Annis Butler #136728774 b. 8/16/1757
Achsah Butler(f) b. 2/21/1760
Asaph Butler Jr #37096500 b. 6/22/1762
Ezra Butler #13507219 b. 9/24/1763
James Daniel Butler #13780965 b. ca 1770
Eunice Butler b. 8/16/1767

It is unclear if she is the daughter of Jenet, as the birth record lists only the father, but if we have Jenet's death date correct, this is correct. It turns out that in fact, there were two different Eunice Butlers, one born in 1767, the other in 1776, who was the daughter of Asaph and Lydia.

His second wife was Lydia Tuttle #151843184 b. 7/20/1741
The date of their marriage is unknown, but we know they had two daughters.
Eunice Butler b. 11/9/1776 in Weathersfield, VT
Susannah H. Butler b. 3/12/1779 in Weathersfield, VT
