Butler, Frederick W., was born on the Isle of Wight (England), June 21, 1844, and was the second of six children
of John and Anna Butler. The father, who was a shoemaker by trade, came with his family to the United States in
1852 and settled at Brockport, where he died a year or two afterward. Upon the death of the father the family became
somewhat scattered, Fred working on a farm in Clarkson until he attained his majority. In 1863 he came to Albion
and found employment in the store of Hiram W. Preston, and with him learned the jeweler's trade and became a practical
and efficient workman. Mr. Butler was in Mr. Preston's employ for seventeen years, after which, in 1882, he came
proprietor of a jewelry store in Albion, succeeding in business J. T. Brown. From then until the present time Mr.
Butler has been numbered among the substantial merchants of the county seat, and one whose business life has been
deservedly successful. In May, 1882 Frederick W. Butler was married to Sarah, daughter of the late Andrew Wall.
Three children have been born of this marriage. In politics Mr. Butler is a Democrat, yet takes no active part
therein. He and his family are members of Christ's Church.
