We have found a "link" in the records of "The Founders and Patriots of America Register" that connects Lt. William to his father, William Buttler, who was an immigrant founder. He had settled in the Colony of Mass. Bay before 1650.

Research has revealed that the yDNA of

Lt. William Butler was R1a1. This means that all his grand-fathers, his father, sons, and grandsons, have the same yDNA

(R1a1). The Haplotype is passed down 

practically unchanged for 500 generations (1500 years).

Note:
Has anyone with this haplotype been able to trace

their ancestry back to the Normans or the Vikings?

Entry from "Butler's and Kinsfolk"

"Lieut.William Butler, yeoman, of Ipswich, Mass. born, (it is indicated in Essex County court records),in 1653, was the New World ancestor of a line of colonizers who left records as hardy pioneers both in what is now the United

States and in Canada. His place of origin has been 

sought at various times over a period of many years by different descendants and by genealogical investigators. The search to date has been without result."

Recently number 11 on the above
list (the grandson of Elmer Ellsworth Butler)
had his DNA tested and recorded as

yDNA R1a1. Since a certain section of the y-DNA remains

(practically unchanged

from father to son for 100's of years)all of the above males

are haplotype R1a1.

DNA is the carrier of our genetic information, which passes from

generation to generation. At conception, a person receives DNA from both their father and mother.We each have 23 pairs of chromosomes and for each pair, one was received from the father and one was received from the mother. The Y chromosome is transmitted from father to sons. Scientists have identified a small portion, which is passed virtually unchanged from father to son. Testing this portion of the Y chromosome provides information about the direct male line, which is the father, his father.and so forth back in time. The locations tested are called Markers.A small change,occurs about once every 500 generations. Therefore male individuals can be tested for an ancestor that may be 100's years in the past.

 Frank also gave a copy of his ancestry to

American Ancestry. It included an entry

that Lt. William's father was William Butler and
his mother was Sarah.
However, he did not mention
the source of this information
