BUTLER, WALTON posted by Ann M. Bizer on Sunday, February 2, 2003

My ancestor came to Tama and Benton County, Iowa about 1850. My great-greatgrand father's name was William WALTON. My great-greatgrand mother's name was Laura Jane BUTLER - WALTON. She died in Benton county about 1882. They had eleven children, Horace, Lovina, James, Samuel, Olive (my line), George, Mary Ann, Sarah Ann, Laura Amanda, Elizabeth (died young) and Mariah Jane.

I would like to be in contact with other who are researching this Walton family. My address is: Ann M. Bizer 11916 Tobler Trail Austin, Texas 78753
