Thanks to Colleen on Ancestry.com for her superb corrections to my Butler tree there. I had several Johns & Jabez Butlers thoroughly mixed up & married to the wrong ladies. I'm getting the hang of Ancestry.com now & received the Official Guide to Ancestry.com book, so it's full speed ahead. The Newfoundland Lighthouses book arrived & has some wonderful stories.
