Joseph Fletcher Butler Joseph Fletcher Butler was born November 10, 1860 in Greenwood, South Carolina. His family eventually moved to Texas, where he married Louisa Lincoln Hubbard in Olden in Eastland County on March 19, 1882. The had 8 children - Alice, Edna, Ida, Olive, Utile, Ella, Alvin (the only son), and Irene. I believe he was a lifelong Methodist and a farmer. The family lived in Gordon, Texas. The family homestead was inundated amount 1970 or so to form a lake - possibly Lake Palo Pinto, but I'm not sure. He died October 28, 1935 in Gordon, and is buried in Fox Mountain Cemetery in Palo Pinto County, Texas (near Gordon.) great grand-daughter Go to person page >
