Hi! Hope you had a blessed Easter Day.

Elisha Brooks married Nancy Butler, daughter of Capt. James Butler about 1787 according to a family record. If this is your same James, Nancy Brooks was Whitaker's aunt?

The Grigsby-Butler line also married into the Mays family. In 1816, one Samuel Mays left a widow named Nancy and a sone James butler Mays and Ryden Griglsy [Grigsby] Mays. 1323 acres of Mays estate was 'bount by the est of Elicia [sic] Brooks. Will admitted to probate 5 June 1816.


Also Major Gen. William Butler's brother in law was one William Moore, whose wife had predeceased him by 15 Dec. 1818. Sister of Moore was Bahathalin/Behattlin/Bethattalin Butler.

Nephews/nieces of Moore [presumably his sister's children due to having surname Butler] were: James Moore Butler [Bingo, I think]; George; William; Frances; Andrew Pikney[sic, but probably Pinckney or a variant, given Edgefield family names]; Pierce Mays Butler; Emily/Emely Butler; Leantine/Leontine Butler.

Hope this helps. If you need sources or something other than abstracts of above, let me know.

I have not, by above, remotely researched my data bases for Whitaker...

Am now busy researching an AfricanAmerican family of USA soldiers who settled one of the few freed slave communities currently known to have existed in U.S. Am doing by dint of "volunteer" for Perryville Battlefield Preservation Assn (KY), and because of the challenge of such research, which generally is formidable.

Also challenge and newness to my own lines of researching Yankee Soldiers! Gasp. My own great/great grandfather got shot in the bottom at Perryville by a Yankee minie ball (I'm confident he WAS NOT in retreat stance at the time; they must have come up behind him?). He was 41st GA CSA.

Let me know if you need any details on above other than my g/g g/f's bottom shot..which is embarrassing to my family... : )

Best regards.
