I believe that the stub indents specifically mentioned below and the associated Accounts Audited from Claims of the American Revolution file (AA 964)referring to James Butler Sr. and Jr. do indeed pertain to the two Butlers killed at the Clouds Creek Massacre on 17 Nov 1781. These sums were collected by Russell Wilson, administrator of the estate of Capt. James Butler (Sr.), guardian of James Butler (Jr.), and husband of the widow, Mary Butler. See file AA 964 for the signed receipts.

They certainly could be involved with these 1785 claims because the state government did not become fully functional until several years after the highly disruptive war in South Carolina ended. Money was also a problem and the state had difficulty paying its militia soldiers.

These two Edgefield Butlers are not closely related, if at all, to James Butler who married Winifred Brooks.
