In childhood, Alfred Butler moved with his parents to Alabama, where in 1846 he enlisted as a private in Moore's Company, First Alabama Volunteers, for service in the war with Mexico. On July 4, 1846 his regiment arrived in Texas and were placed under command of Gen. Zachary Taylor. In the spring of 1847 the First Alabama joined Gen. Winfield Scott's army for the invasion of Central Mexico and took part in the siege of Vera Cruz, where Butler was hospitalized after the city capitulated. After the war, Butler went to Union County, Arkansas, where he married Mary Frances Stanley in 1849. In 1852 he and his family migrated to Texas, settling first in Anderson County and then in Freestone County, where Butler helped build the first brick Freestone County courthouse. In 1856 Butler acquired 100 acres of land outside Fairfield, where he farmed until his untimely death at the age of 36 in 1860.
