The troublesome nephew of a prominent Massachusetts Congressman and Civil War general, Benjamin Butler, George H. Butler was a theater critic and writer.
"George H. Butler, the dissipated nephew of General B. F. Butler, who has been one of the characters of the National Captial for years, died last Tuesday in poverty in a restaurant at Washington, D. C. His uncle will have the remains decently interred. George Butler was on his uncle's staff during the war, was subsequently Consul General to Egypt, and was at one time married to Rose Etynge, the actress."
