Frank E. Butler (February 25, 1852 – November 21, 1926) was a marksman in Wild West variety shows. He was married to sharpshooter Annie Oakley. While his birth date is listed on his and Annie's U.S. Passport application as February 25, 1852, it is possible he was born in 1847. Contents 1 Biography 2 References 3 Notes 4 External links // Biography Butler was born in county Longford, Ireland and moved to the United States about the age of 13. After a series of odd jobs, he developed a shooting act and toured with variety shows. After meeting at a shooting competition in Cincinnati, Butler and Oakley married on August 23, 1881. They developed their shooting act in 1882 when Oakley stood in for Butler's sick partner.[1] In 1884 the Butlers joined the Sells Brothers Circus, and in 1885 they joined Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, leaving it in 1901.[2] As Oakley became the star attraction, Butler became her manager, writing articles and press releases. Oakley said that "the financial part was always in her husband's hands."[3] Oakley returned to performing between 1911 and 1913 with Vernon Seaver's "Young Buffalo Show", with Butler again as her manager.[4] Butler also worked as a representative of the Union Metallic Cartridge Company and as a salesman for the Remington Arms Company.[5] After they retired, Butler and Oakley spent part of the year at Pinehurst, North Carolina, and Cambridge, Maryland.[6] The musical Annie Get Your Gun is loosely based on the lives of Annie Oakley and Frank Butler. On the 3rd of November 1926 his wife Annie Oakley died. Frank stopped eating after the death of Annie and died on the 21st of November 1926. References Riley, Glenda.
