"Sergeant Major Robert Henry Butcher (1841-1900)
Sergeant Major Robert Henry Butcher of the Somerset Light Infantry (13th Regiment of Foot) was born on 15th September 1841, the son of Barracks Sergeant John Butcher and his wife, Elizabeth. He was baptised in Santa Maria on 6th September 1842. He joined the Army in 1864 and fought in the Zulu Campaign 1877-1879. Robert Henry married Mary Ann Halpin . He died of heart disease at his home in Cheetham Hill and was buried in Consecrated 130a on 27th Sept 1900. The grave is located on the left hand side of the Church Public Section behind the wire fence at the rear of the cemetery and a surviving gravestone is very unlikely. His widow, Mary Ann, married William Wheatley in 1916 and they are buried in St Joseph’s RC Cemetery, Moston."

1879Graves,

Does his discharge paper give an intended place of residence?

Only I'm trying to tie in a possible connection to Birr, County Offaly, Ireland for him.

Cheers,

JY
