While I have no lineage to this family, I have previously looked at them simply from a historical standpoint. From Lincoln Co. Deed Bk. 3, p. 233: 11 Feb. 1786 John Butt of Lincoln, formerly called Burke Co., to Peter Mull for 100 pounds NC money conveys 100 acres on N. side Henry Fork of S. Fork of Catawba River, being upper part of 500 acres entered in King's office by William Butt of Pennsylvania and granted 10 Dec. 1778 by representatives of freemen of this State to John Butt. There is a Berks Co. PA will, Book A, p. 22 for William Bott. Among his heirs are sons William (deceased)and John, and a dau. Catharina wife of Casper Shell. There are a few entries for this John Butt in court records, mid 1780s, nothing after that. This John Butt would not be the same as your ancestor John Butts, a Lincolnton hatter, who was born 17 Jan. 1781, and was a son of Michael Butts.
Do you know the name of the wife of your David M. Butts?
At Emmanuel Lutheran Cem., Lincolnton, NC, there is a tombstone for: Margaret Ann Elizabeth Butts, dau. of David Butts, died July 6, 1837 age 4 months 24 days.
