The County was named after Edmund Pendleton (1721-1803), a longtime member of the Virginia House of Burgesses (1752-74), the Continental Congress and chief justice of Virginia.

The city of Butler was established around 1852 when the Kentucky Central Railroad was built through the area. The city was named for William O. Butler, U.S. congressman from the area (1839-43), when it was incorporated on February 1, 1868.

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be. If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails, view our Volunteer Page for further information.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)
