Hello Christine, Do you know anything about the Butler family around Marlfield and Knocklofty? My g-g-grandparents John Butler and Bridget Britt lived in Marlfield in c.1830s. They had 3 sons, James b.1832 (my g-gf), John b. 1837 and Patrick b. 1839. They lived next door to the St. Patrick's Church and Cemetery in Marlfield, on the Samuel Gordon estate. The Bagwell estate was across the street.

This site is the lands of the ancient Inishlounaght Abbey. The Butlers of Cahir took over the land when the Abbey was dissolved in the 1500s. I have a DNA cousin from Cahir, and I'm thinking perhaps my family is related to the Cahir Butlers.
Since John and Bridget named their first son James, I believe his father was James Butler. There is a John Butler b.1801 and baptized at St. Mary's RC in Clonmel, father James. Also, a John Butler living in Knocklofty in the 1790s who might be my John's grandfather. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I visited the area in May for the first time and it is so beautiful. I live in Texas.

My g-gf James and his brother Patrick immigrated to Memphis TN in the 1850s. I know nothing about his brother John or their parents, John and Bridget. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
