George D. Butterfly
Rutland Daily Herald, March 8, 1915:
George D. Butterfly, an old resident of this vicinity, died yesterday morning at 2 o'clock at the home of his granddaughter, Mrs. W.E. Flynn, No. [illegible] South Main street. He suffered a paralytic shock two weeks ago, and never rallied. Mr. Butterfly was born at Whitehall, N.Y., January 7, 1847. He joined the 176th New York regiment when he was only 14 years old, and was one of the youngest soldiers in the service of the Union during the Civil war.
After the war he lived in Shrewsbury, and engaged in farming until 10 years ago, when his health failed, and he came to Rutland. He is survived by a wife, who was Miss Ellen Plumley, three sons, Charles, Frank and Eugene Butterfly, and a daughter, Mrs. Edward Lloyd, all of Rutland. He was a member of Roberts post, G.A.R. The Grand Army ritual will be observed at the house tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock, and the funeral will be held at the North Shrewsbury church at 1.30 in the afternoon. Burial will be in Northam.
