I am looking for information regarding John Butler. I would like to find source confirmation for what I know and further information regarding him and his family. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
1. John Butler born 1732 Portland died Dec 1827 Westbrook Maine. Possible that he was a silversmith "that came down in the world" (not sure what that means!) *Source: research notes of a student intern that left no other information regarding source.
2. John's first wife may have been Ann Codman born Nov 18 1732 Charleston MA died 1783 Gorham ME. *Source: same intern's unsourced notes.
3. John's second wife "Jane", with whom he had at least two daughters
Ann(e) T. (Tyng or Tyny) born 6 Sep 1787 Gorham Maine (also known as Nancy)married Arthur Drinkwater 1814 Cumberland, Maine
Mary born 10 Dec 1791 Gorham, Maine
