I’m trying to locate my great-grandfather’s household on the 1910 census. His name was James Benjamin Butler and his wife was Maud Angeline Whitener. He appears on other censuses as follows:
•1900: James, in his father’s household in the Ball Ground District, Murray County, Georgia.
•1920: “J. B. Butter” in the Ball Ground District, Murray County, Georgia.
•1930: “James B. Butler” in Chatsworth, Murray County, Georgia.
He should be found in Texas in 1910. His first five children were born in Quanah, Hardeman County, Texas between 1907 and 1916. Moreover, his second son was born in Quanah on February 14, 1910.
I’ve searched every permutation of his name that I can think of in both Ancestry.com and FamilySearch (not just in Texas – the whole country). James, J. B., Jim, Butler, Butter. I’ve searched all Butlers born in Georgia in 1880, then again as a wild card search with the last name as But?er. I’ve also searched for his wife and his two oldest sons, Floyd David and James Benjamin, Jr, again with any name combination I could come up with.
I found James' sister, Mattie (Butler) Sampler and her husband in Quanah. His younger brother, William, lived with Mattie. I would have thought that Jim’s family lived somewhere nearby, but I’ve browsed through every page of the census images for Hardeman County and they are nowhere to be found.
Does anyone know where to find this family on the 1910 census?
