BALDWIN - Seeking information on Robert Henry Wayman, b. 1859 (parents: Harvey B. and Fanny) of Worcester and Sarah H. Baldwin, b. June 1864 (parents: George and Eliza) of Westford.

The 1900 census shows that their mother was named Sarah. Robert Henry disappears from census records after 1880. I believe Harvey may have been the son of Jeremiah Wayman of Summit.

BUTE - In a biographical sketch done on Manuel W. Bute, published in the book Portrait and Biographical Album of Green Lake, Marquette and Waushara Counties (Wisconsin) pages 749 - 750, it states :
Lewis Bute's [who is Manuel's father] grandfather was a native of France where he was reared and educated to the profession of a physician and surgeon. He came to America a few years after the Revolutionary War and settled in Schoharie County NY where he practiced his profession until the time of his death which occurred in middle life from a fit of apoplexy.
I am looking for any information on the Bute Family. That same article list's Dr. Bute's wife as Sarah nee Hasard from Rhode Island and says they had nine children. I know who seven of these are, but not the other two. I'm looking for Dr. Bute's first name and any other information about the two "missing" children.

BUTLER - I am trying to determine the father of William J. Butler or any of William's Siblings. Known facts: William J Butler was born in Mass in 1794 as reflected in all US census. He married Sophia Young (daughter of David Young) in Zion Ev, Lutheran Church in Cobleskill 6 Nov 1817. It appears that the parents of William J Butler moved to Schoharie County from Mass. between 1794 and 1817. I believe that William would not have made the move at an early age without his parents. If this assumption is correct then the parents of William are buried in Schoharie County, probably near Cobleskill. The probated will of a Moses Butler who died in March 1845 suggests that he could be the father of William J. Butler. Russel E Sackreiter - posted 04-98
