Francis E. Butler (January 30, 1847 (baptized) – November 21, 1926) was an Irish American marksman who performed in Wild West variety shows. He was married to sharpshooter Annie Oakley, and while his birth date is listed on his and Oakley’s U.S. passport application as February 25, 1852, the obituary for Butler posted by the Associated Press in 1926 has his age as 76, which meant he was born in 1850. According to baptism registers on file at the National Library of Ireland, Butler was baptized on January 30, 1847. His parents were Michael Butler and Catherine Whelan. He was the oldest of their five children.
