BUTLER, George Obituary

Today’s Mazomanie Sickle says: “George Butler, one of the first settlers of Mazomanie, died at 6 o’clock on the morning o f the 24th of October, 1889. He was born in Delaware county, New York, the 22d of July, 1815, and afterward lived for many years at Addison, Steuben county, where he was at different times engaged in the hotel and in the lumber business, and was there married to Maria Louise Welden, by whom he had three daughters, two of whom, Mrs. S. B. Duley, of Idaho, and Mrs. Hattie Pratt-Hillier, survive him. Mr. Butler moved to Madison, Wisconsin, in 1853, and to Richland Center in 1854, where, upon the death of his first wife, he married her sister, Anne Welden, who survives him. He made his home in Mazomanie village in 1855, the year of its nativity, and, with the exception of a trip across “the plains,” has resided here continuously ever since, and died in the possession of the warm personal friendship of every man in the community.” [Wisconsin State Journal (Madison, Wi.)
