"Steuben Butler was the youngest son of Capt. Zebulon Butler and Phebe Haight Butler and half brother to Gen. Lord Butler and Zebulon Butler, Jr.

His wife was Julia Bulkeley whom he married 3 June 1810.

In May 1809 Butler, in partnership with Sidney Tracy, became the publisher of the Luzerne Federalist. Charles Miner, the previous publisher, wrote "The talents, integrity and applications of the young gentlemen who succeed me are a pledge to the public that the paper will be improved under their superintendence".

Sidney Tracy retired in September 1810 and in December 1810 a prospectus was published for a newspaper to be called The Gleaner and Luzerne Advertiser, published by Charles Miner and Steuben Butler

From 1813-1815 he published The Literary Visitor.

In 1818, The Gleaner ceased publication and Mr. Butler established The Wyoming Herald. In partnership with Elijah Worthington, The Herald was enlarged in 1828 and published by Butler & Worthington. It continued until 1831 when Worthington withdrew and was replaced by Asher Miner."
