Birth: Jan. 7, 1914
Death: Jan. 14, 1963

Ned C. Butler is of Anglo-Norman-Irish descent, and has Type III Irish (Dalcassian) DNA, R1b1c1 haplogroup. He is ancestrally descended from the Irish O'Brien Butler line from Carrigogunnell Castle, and the Earls of Ormonde Line from Kilkenny Castle, Ireland. He is also a descendant of King Edward I of England, and is distantly related through the Butler line to Ann Boleyn, the beheaded wife of Henry VIII and mother of Queen Elizabeth I. He is also related to Pierce Butler, signatory to the U.S Declaration of Independence and the American Constitution, both U.S. Presidents Bush, and HM Queen Elizabeth II of England.

His direct American descent is through his 2nd great grandfather Thomas Butler, who served as a drummer in the Virginia Militia Line during the entire Revolutionary War. Thomas Butler was present during the spiking of US cannons by the British in New York and at the surrender of British General Lord Cornwallis to General George Washington at Yorktown marking the end of the Revolutionary War.

Through his mother, Osie Pollard Butler, Ned is a descendent of Captain Benjamin G. Pollard, captain of the gunship "Row Galley" of the Virginia Navy during the American Revolution. Ned's grandfather, Wiley B. Pollard served in the Confederate Army, 41st Alabama Company B and was severely wounded at the Battle of Stone's River. Another ancestor, James M. Brake, was killed at the Battle of Perryville, Ky.
