My Butler family's Y-DNA is a very close match to descendents of the Fighting Butlers of the Revolutionary War. They were five officers from Pennsylvania serving under Gen. George Washington. Their father was Thomas Butler born in Ireland in 1720, supposedly from aristocratic roots. His parentage has been much debated. Since my great-grandfather James immigrated in 1857, our connections are in Ireland. I know all our descendents in America since my grandfather was an only child. Descendents of the Fighting Butlers named their plantations in Louisiana Dunboyne Plantation and Ormonde Plantation apparently from the ancestral roots. Any information on the ancestors of the Fighting Butlers or my great-grandfather James Butler's family from Clonmel, Tipperary, would be greatly appreciated.
