William Joseph Butler pursued his education in the Springfield school system and after graduating from Springfield High School attended State University of Illinois in Champaign. After he received his degree from what is now known as the University of Illinois, he began to study law in the firm of Connelly & Mather located in his hometown of Springfield, Illinois. William wanted to attend a formal law-school at Harvard University in Boston Massachusetts, but his father Henry Wirt Butler refused to pay his tuition. Henry Wirt's theory being that his son could find a more than a suitable legal education at a college closer to home. Besides, he knew at his son was a "free sprit" and had already become a "ladies man." Keeping William at a local college in Illinois, would allow the his father and grandfather to look after him. As expected this did not sit well with the aspiring young man. Determined to get to Harvard one way or another, William scraped together all of the money he had and found a high stakes poker game upon which he managed to win his first year's tuition. After successfully completing his first year at Harvard, Henry Wirt paid for the rest of his formal education. After graduating, William moved back to Springfield, where he entered in practice with his grandfather, John A. McClernand, and remained there until 1894 when McClernand retired.

Taking an active part in politics, William gained prominence and influence in the ranks of the Republican Party. It also did not hurt William's political ambitions that his father and both of his grandfathers had held office on and off since the 1820's. Put simply, William J. Butler was bred and raised to become a political giant in the State of Illinois. In 1894, William was elected to the thirty-ninth district's house seat of the Illinois Legislature. Although high office eluded him, William remained an active force in state politics his entire life.

[11156] Commanding Officer of the 3rd Battalion, 99th Infantry Division during the Battle of the Bulge, World War II

Lieutenant Colonel McClernand Butler took command of the 3rd Battalion on February 1, 1944. On September 15, 1944, the division embarked for England, and on October 31, 1944, it sailed on HMS Empire Lance for Le Havre, France.

The 3rd Battalion became the first unit of the 99th Division to reach the front when it moved to Hofen, Germany, on November 9, 1944. Hofen was part of Germany's Siegfried Line, or West Wall. The battalion held a 6,000-yard front from Monschau to Hofen toward Alzen. The 38th Cavalry Squadron stood on its left flank, and the other two battalions of the 395th Infantry held the right flank.

On December 16, 1944, a tremendous artillery barrage signaled the start of Adolf Hitler's final offensive. The German plan was to attack west to the Meuse River and north through Liége and on to the English Channel, splitting the Allies' forces.

At Hofen, the 3rd Battalion fought off fierce attacks by the 751st and 753rd Volksgrenadier regiments. The first day of fighting saw 19 Germans captured and an estimated 200 killed. The battalion lost four dead, four missing and seven wounded. As the Battle of the Bulge continued, the Germans renewed their efforts to crack Hofen. Several times, Butler had to call in artillery fire on his own positions to drive the enemy back.

In another day's fighting the 3rd Battalion took 50 Germans prisoner and caused more than 800 German casualties, losing five dead and seven wounded in the action. On December 23, the weather cleared and Allied planes took to the skies to bomb German columns, shattering their final offensive.

The 3rd Battalion's tenacious fight for Hofen was recognized on March 7 at Gohr, when the unit was decorated with the Presidential Unit Citation.

The battalion saw action thereafter at Bergheim, Remagen, the Ruhr Pocket and Gleidorf.

Later, the battalion moved southeast to join the Third Army, commanded by General George S. Patton, in mopping up German resistance. May 2 brought an end to the fighting and an end to nearly six months of brutal combat for the men of the 3rd Battalion.

From an interview with Col. Butler.

Mac helped write a book about his battalion, "Butler's Battlin' Blue Bastards," by Thor Ronningen. 1993 Brunswick Publicshing Corpo, Rt 1. Box 1A1, Lawrencevile, Virginia 23968

Veteran Col. McClernand Butler passed away on October 14th, 2001 at 6:35 p.m. due to natural causes.

Col. Butler was born July 10, 1910 in Springfield, IL to William J. Butler and Bessie (Cross) Butler.

Butler entered the Illinois National Guard in 1926 and attended West Point Military Academy from 1930-1933. While at West Point he set records for marksmanship which are still unbroken. In 1933, he was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the Illinois National Guard. Butler entered Federal service on March 5th, 1941 as a 2nd Lieutenant, and in 1944 was promoted to Lt. Colonel. Upon his retirement from military service in 1960, Butler was promoted to full Colonel.

During WWII he served with distinction on the front lines of the European Theater. Butler was commander of the 3rd Battalion, 395th Infantry Regiment. On May 22, 1943 he was appointed Regimental Executive Officer of the 393rd Infantry Regiment and on July 17th, 1945 he was appointed Regimental commander of the 394th Infantry Regiment where he remained until the regiment was returned to the United States. Butler was discharged from the service on January 14th, 1945.

Once back in Illinois, Butler helped to form the 123rd Infantry Regiment Illinois National Guard, 44th Infantry Division. This division was mobilized in 1952 because of the war in Korea and Butler received his orders for the Far East. He was originally assigned as a Battalion Commander in the 7th Infantry Division and later was assigne3d to the division staff.

A Silver Star, Purple Heart and four Bronze Stars were among the many decorations Col.. Butler received while in the service. However it was the Presidential Unit Citation that his unit received for their actions during the Battle of the Bulge of which Butler was most proud.

He was married on January 23, 1937 to Madge Grimes of Lexington, IL. The Butlers moved their family from Springfield, IL to Ottawa in 1947, Col. Butler was the Ottawa and LaSalle branch manager for the Illinois Bell Telephone Company.

Colonel Butler was the Past President of the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce and Past President of the Ottawa Rotary Club where he held membership for over 35 years. He also held membership in the Elks Club, Dede-Co Golf Club, American Legion, VFW, Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge, The Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War, Order of the Indian Wars of the Untied States and was a Scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts of America.

The Butlers were former members of the Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, but had been attending the Illinois Valley Evangelical Free Church in Ottawa for the past several years.

As a resident of Greenfield, Colonel Butler lived at Green Tree Assisted Living Community and continued his membership at the Rotary Club of Greenfield.

Colonel Butler is preceded in death by his wife Madge (Grimes) Butler of Ottawa, his brother Wirt Butler of Wheaton, IL and his sisters Louise (Butler) Flake of Rockville, MD, and Elizabeth (Butler) Mchenry of Albuquerque, NM.

Colonel Butler is survived by his daughter Susan Elizabeth (Butler) Crawford of Greenfield, IN, son in law David Bialy Crawford of Greenfield, IN, grandson McClernand Butler Crawford of New Palestine, IN, granddaughter-in-law Stephanie Ann (Graham) Crawford of New Palestine, IN and great-grandchildren Graham Butler Crawford and Elizabeth Chase Crawford of New Palestine, IN.

McClernand Butler will be remembered as a war hero, community leader, loving family man, and a good neighbor. He will be sorely missed.

Visitation will be held at Erlewein Mortuary in Greenfield, IN Thursday, October 18th, 4 p.m. - 8 p.m.

Memorials may be made to The National WWII Memorial in Washington D.C.

He gained new claims to France through his marriage (1254) to Eleanor of Castile and was responsible for his father's victory in the Barons' War. As king, his conquest of Wales (1277-82) was followed by a long, futile campaign against Scotland (1290-1307). Edward's legal reforms, notably the statutes of Westminster, earned him the title English Justinian. He restricted private and church courts and controlled land grants to the church. His Model Parliament (1295) marked greater participation by the barons, merchants, and clergy whose resistance to war taxation had forced him to confirm previous charters (e.g., Magna Carta). (From www.encyclopedia.com)

This king had a nickname for practically every side of his personality. Edward was tall and nicknamed Longshanks for his long limbs. He was religious, but this king was also devious and called the Leopard. He was a strong fighter who launched invasions into both Scotland and Wales. Edward I was called the Hammer of the Scots, and also built several Welsh fortresses. Some historians call Edward the "father of the longbow", believing -- possibly mistakenly -- that he introduced this supposedly Welsh weapon to the English army.

Edward was a far different character from his father and soon put the country on a footing he preferred. In 1276-77 he brought Llywelyn ap Gruffydd to heel as well as putting the finances of the country back in order after the disasters of the previous reign. In 1282 he was surprised by a Welsh revolt and by the April of 1283 he had subjugated the whole of Wales, killing Llywelyn and capturing his brother Dafydd. Even this proved insufficient to totally overawe Wales and Edward faced further revolts in 1287 and 1295, though neither were as serious as the wars of 1277 and 1282.
With the conquest of Wales Edward began a massive castle building project that is still rightly seen as one of the wonders of the thirteenth century. Towards the end of his reign Edward became increasingly embroiled in bringing Scotland under his direct rule in a similar manner to that which he had achieved in Wales and this proved by and large to be his undoing.

The Welsh campaigns had made heavy drains on the Exchequer and Edward turned more and more to imposing unjust taxes on his peoples and antagonizing his baronage. The conquest of Scotland failed largely because of Edward's success in Wales, he had spent his money and this is why no military masterpieces like Caernarfon or Harlech are to be found in Scotland, where Edward had to content himself more with wooden peels like the one he built at Linlithgow. An increasingly beleaguered Edward, abandoned in some of his campaigns by some of his previously most loyal barons, died crossing the border into Scotland again in 1307.

MRS. KORTH GETS DECREE.

Charged in Reno Action Cruelty and Failure to Provide.

RENO, Nev., Feb. 28 -- Mrs. Frances Phelps Korth of New York received a
divorce here today from Arthur A. Korth, who was charged with failure to
provide and extreme cruelty. The Korths were married in Yonkers, N.Y., in
September, 1920.

Mrs. Korth is a granddaughter of the late William Walter Phelps,
Representative in Congress and diplomat, who was sent by the United States
to Vienna and other capitals under the Administrations of Presidents
Garfield and Harrison.

[New York Times, Feb. 29, 1928, page 25]

[4670] ~[Wilds-Phelps.FTW]

~emails from Alex Phelps, 01-26-00:

~To respond as to my ancestry. My mother was Frances Phelps-Penry. She married, first, Arthur Koch in 1920 in New York, and then, John Penry, a Welsh doctor, in 1926 in England. Her mother was Marian, the Hon. William Walter's only daughter. Marian married, first, Franz von Rottenburg in Bonn in 1893, then, Peters in about 1920. She died, I believe, in 1923. Frances was born in 1896; Phelps Phelps, two years later. You're correct in identifying the arbitrary manner in which Marian reclaimed the family name. There is even a question as to whether she ever divorced Franz legally, though it is known that she renounced his wealth. My mother, Frances, too, continued this arbitrary behaviour in the matter of names -- as well as much else.

~Ellen (if I may) -

~A fascinating message - in part, because it has taken me so long to connect with other branches of the family.

~There is a great deal that I know of the Hon. William Walter, Sheffield's father, and his antecedents. Perhaps you are already fully versed withthe history? In addition, I have a good history of Franz von Rottenburg and ongoing contact with his granddaughter, Irmgard, in Berlin. The murder, however, is news to me and I will check with Irmgard. Do you have any verification for this? Franz was an aide to Bismarck and chief of the Imperial Chancellery around 1890, before becoming Assistant Minister(Under-Secretary, I think) for the Interior. Ill health caused his resignation from this post and, in the latter '90s, he was appointed to the prestigious post of Director of Bonn University. He was married twice: first, in 1876, to the English Marian Hutton, while he was studying law in England -- there were two children, Otto, Irmgard's father, and Elizabeth. Marian died in 1889 and Franz then married the second Marian, William Walter's daughter, in 1893.

~To-date, I have understood that Franz died around 1906. Irmgard, a government lawyer now retired, has said that little was ever told of Franz in her family. It so happens that she is in the process of going through the family's papers, so, perhaps we shall learn more of events.She has a brother who is currently the German Consul in Miami.

~Let me say that I am a writer with a strongly developed sense of history. Also, let me explain that my mother, Frances, left America -- New York -- in 1926, having divorced her first husband by whom she had two children.She never returned and died in 1980 in Lausanne in Switzerland. Part of the reason for this move was her disenchantment with her family. Her brother, Phelps Phelps (yes, you can't get enough of a good thing!), died in 1982 in Wildwood, NJ. I came to know him in his last years. He was, if you will, the "golden boy," and Francis was neglected because of it. Worse, from her point of view, Phelps had a checkered, though rather lively, career. He was thrown out of Yale, the alma mater, for paying another student to take his exams; however, family connections enabled him a pass at Columbia. It is said that he ran numbers for Jimmy Walker, the last of the corrupt Tammany Hall mayors of New York. Then, a Democrat, he got elected to the New York state legislature. During the war he was a captain in the Army and, subsequently, sat on the Japanese War Crimes Tribunal. Truman appointed him ambassador to the Dominican Republic and American Samoa -- where his grandfather had distinguished himself in treaty negotiations, sixty or so years earlier. On Eisenhower's accession, Phelps returned to New Jersey, where he tried to involve himself in state politics. Rebuffed by the "Jersey Jewish political machine" because he was "too willing to air the party's dirty laundry" he was appointed a commissioner to the Palisades Interstate Park Commission, where he remained for ten or more years before retiring. He was, by all accounts a popular figure. After the war he had a weekly radio show of poltical comment, corresponded frequently with the newspapers, and was a devoted baseball fan who knew many of the players. He never married, while living with four women consecutively. There were no children. He ate well, lived well, had a great time -- and my mother hated him. We were never allowed to mention his name.

~My own research into the history of William Walter's two sons, your great-grandfather, Sheffield, and John Jay -- Captain Jack, as he came to beknown - have yielded, so far, little information. All I know of Sheffieldis that he went into the newspaper business (?). This would have made sense in light of William Walter's close friendship with various newspapermen, including the distinguished William Whitelaw of the New York Tribune. Otherwise, I am aware that Sheffield had three children. Are you descended from William Walter, the oldest, or EleanorSheffield?

~As for John Jay, he, somewhat like Phelps Phelps, seems to have had a good time, traveling and living it up at the Red House in Teaneck, NJ. It is said that he offered Roosevelt his steam launch to patrol the Eastcoast during the war. I gather he died about 1941. I know that he married Rose Hutchinson and had two children, Dorothy and Rose. Dorothy married a Dr. West and there is at least one son, Andrew, an architect who worked for I M Pei. I have tried unsuccessfully to contact him. I believe he is now retired. Not long ago, I made contact with Bob Griffin, then of the Teaneck Historical Society. He is a great Phelps fan and produced a video of Teaneck focusing on the latter part of the 19th century and including numerous references to William Walter. I have visited Teaneck and Yale and read in depth of William Walter's times and friends.

~Tell me, if you can, anything of Sheffield and John Jay and their descendants. As I indicated earlier, my mother, Frances, more or less cut herself off from the family and consequently I know little of them and have always been curious. I live in Vermont - al, P.O.Box 206, Hartland, VT 05048; (802) 436-2576; fax, 802-436-3439 - and havebeen in America since 1966. I am the only member of the family to live here; the rest, in Europe.

~I am happy to share any and all information about the family. Specificquestions are helpful and give me an idea of how much you know. As Isaid, I have done copious research on the life and times of the the Hon.William Walter and am always interested in new material.

~Alex
