Butler, Alfred Alexander (1826–1902)

Alfred Alexander Butler passed away at his residence, Battery Point, to-day, at the age of about 76 years. The deceased was the son of the late Mr. Gamaliel Butler, founder of the legal firm of Butler, McIntyre, and Butler, and for many years was a merchant in this city. When he left the mercantile world he interested himself in mining, and was legal manager for many companies. About ten years ago he was seized with a paralytic stroke, from which he never thoroughly recovered. The deceased, who was highly respected in the community, was a thorough business man, and possessed a kindly and unassuming nature. He never took any active part in public affairs, but keenly observed their trend from time to time. His eldest son, Mr. Pierce Butler, occupies the position of Chief Inspector of Roads for the Government of the state.
