Ebenezer Butterfield was probably the youngest of the three males aged 15-20 in Nathan Butterfield's 1840 U.S. Census household in Pomfret Township, Chautauqua County, NY. A FamilySearch extract of vital records for the state of Vermont says Ebenezer was born 12 Feb 1824 (in Benson, Rutland County, NY), and that his older brothers Nathan and William had been born 10 Oct 1820 and 21 Dec 1821 respectively.

Ebenezer Butterfield and Alma Lewis were reportedly married in 1845 in Erie County, PA, but had moved to Illinois by the time their third child, Chloe, was born in March of 1851. Five more children were born in Illinois between 1853 and 1865.

By 1861 Ebenezer Butterfield and his family were in the Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin area. Roscoe, Illinois, is a small town in Northern Illinois midway between Rockford, Illinois, and Beloit, Wisconsin. The following is his Civil War record;

Ebenezer Butterfield served in the Civil War. He first enlisted from Roscoe (Winnebago County, IL) on 22 Apr 1861 (just days after the opening of the War) in Company F of Wisconsin's 1st Infantry Regiment, but was discharged from that regiment after only one month. He was about 38 years old. He then served five months in Company G of Illinois' 45th Infantry Regiment, enlisting from Roscoe, Illinois, on 17 Sep 1861 and serving from 20 November to 23 April, when he received a disability discharge. He enlisted again on 30 Sep 1864 in Company I of the 9th Illinois Cavalry and was mustered out on 15 Jun 1865. (Recruits to Company I of the 9th Illinois Cavalry were largely from Boone and Cook Counties. Ebenezer and one other recruit, George Bates, were the only members of the company whose residence was given as Roscoe, IL. Both were mustered in on 30 Sep 1864, and both were mustered out on 15 Jun 1865.) Joseph L. Fisher first enlisted as a private in Company F of the 1st Wisconsin Infantry Regiment, a 90-day unit, on 22 Apr 1861 from Roscoe (Winnebago County), Illinois. (His brother Philip Fisher and cousin Ebenezer Butterfield enlisted in the same unit.) He received a disability discharge from the 1st WI Infantry on 22 July 1861. On 28 February 1862, he enlisted in Company A of the 12th Illinois Cavalry Regiment. His brothers, Philip and John, joined the same company on the same day. Joseph was promoted to full lieutenant on 27 January 1864 and mustered out on 2 Mar 1865. Service records retrieved by another researcher say that he first enlisted in the 1st Wisconsin Infantry on 19 Apr 1861, was discharged from that unit on 7 Sep 1861, then enlisted in the 12th Illinois Cavalry (Co. A) on 1 Dec 1861. He applied for an invalid pension on 7 May 1877, claiming that he had contracted rheumatism from exposure during the Red River campaign (on 15 May 1864?).

Ebenezer and Alma and their family lived in Roscoe, IL, when the 1870 U. S. Census was taken. Nathan, Ansel, Orin and Alma were still at home. Their oldest surviving daughter, 22-year-old Chloe, lived in Roscoe as well, but boarded with the family of Alvin and Elizabeth Dodge.
In 1870, 22-year-old Chloe Buttefield lived in the household of Alvin and Elizabeth Dodge in Roscoe, Winnebago Co., IL. The Dodges had a 10-year-old daughter, Emma, and also boarded Chester Melanotho, 28, b NY or NJ, a clerk in a store.

By 1880, Ebenezer and Alma had separated. Alma and the three youngest children, Orin, Arthur and Alma, still lived together in Roscoe, IL. Ebenezer had become a physician and lived in the village of Roscoe in Graham Township, Graham County, Kansas. His son Nathan is listed as resident in the household as well, but as Nathan and his wife and baby boy are listed elsewhere in the 1880 U.S. census, it is possible that Nathan was just visiting his father at the time.


1880 census of Beloit, Rock County, Wisconsin, no date of enumeration:

- Goodall, Ira E., age 60, occupation Insurance Agent, born New Hampshire, father born Vermont, mother born New Hampshire.
- Goodall, Mary, age 57, wife, occupation Keeping Home, born New Hampshire, both parents born New Hampshire.
- Goodall, Luella, age 34, daughter, single, occupation is blank, born Wisconsin, both parents born New Hampshire.
- Butterfield, Alma, age 17, servant, single, occupation Servant, born Illinois, both parents born New York.
 

 


Ebenezer's wife, Alma Butterfield, is reported to have died in 1884, but she was listed as widowed/divorced in a Nebraska state census taken in early June, 1885. If she was divorced, rather than widowed, Ebenezer may have survived Alma.

Orin Ebenezer Butterfield was born February 6, 1858, in Harvard, McHenry Co., IL, and died July 15, 1942, at his home, Antigo, Langlade Co., WI, at age 84. He is buried in Plot: Block 3 Lot 65, Antigo Cemetery, Antigo, Langlade Co., WI.
