Butler School

Polk Twp 10 northeast of Lawson 1000 feet 39.469ºN 94.182ºW This is an old school in west-central Polk Township. No one interviewed knew the origin of the name. It is not a local name. Since that section of the country is democratic it may have been named for William Orlando Butler (1791-1880), of Kentucky, a man popular with southern democrats and a democratic candidate for vice-president in 1848.
