Edward Butler, placed in Queens Orphanage on 8th June, 1858 with his sister Selina Butler. Edward was 2 years of age and Selina 5 years of age. Edward died in the Orphanage 22 August 1858. Their father, was iniailly reported as drunk, but my interpretation of the writing on placement record is that he was dead. The mother was in New Norfolk Asylum, more research to be done to get her name.
