Elizabeth "Betsey" Howe married John Butler in 1725 at Hopkinton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.
On February 16, 1745, John Butler was commissioned as First Lieutenant in the 2nd Company commanded by Captain Ephriam Baker of the First Regiment of the Province of Massachusetts Bay under the command of Colonel John Bradstreet. In April of 1745 this regiment joined the New England Army under the leadership of Commander in Chief Lt. General Sir William Pepperrell. From May 1, 1745 to June 16, 1745 this army besieged the French army in Fort Louisbourg, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada. Lt. John Butler was present with his regiment when the French surrendered the fort, and his company became part of the garrison which occupied the bastion for the British Empire. During the extremely cold winter which followed, many soldiers died from exposure and disease, amongst them on February 1, 1746, Lt. John Butler. He is buried in a common grave for the New England troops near Fort Louisbourg.
