Cyrus Butler was born in Providence and early engaged in commerce with his father and brother whose remains now rest in this enclosure. Distinguished for untiring industry, a resolute will, a clear sagacity and a sound judgment and governed by an uncompromising honesty, he devoted the active years of a long life to the pursuits of trade. He accumulated a large fortune by the judicious management of which he contributed much to the commercial prosperity of his native town. By a munificent donation during his life he aided largely in founding in this city on the banks of the Seekonk River the Butler Hospital for the Insane.
