52 Ancestors Week 11- Catherine Butler

This week's theme is "Luck of the Irish". My closest Irish relative is Catherine Louise Butler. Her parents were both born in Ireland (at least according to the censuses), and immigrated to America before having children.
Catherine was born June 3, 1857 in Temperenceville, Ohio. She was the 7th of 11 children. On Feb 18, 1874 in St. Mary's Catholic Church, Tempernanceville, Ohio, she married John Francis Turner (she was 16, and their first child was born 5 months later...). They had 10 children, living mostly in Ohio and briefly across the border in West Virginia.

She died Oct 20, 1939 in a hospital in Columbus, Ohio. She was 82 years old.
