Remember, Capt. James Butler and his son James died at the Cloud's Creek massacre before the chase by Capt. James Butler's son William Butler. If William Butler acquired the sword he had many children and descendants. Any one of them could have it.
I have never read that William kept Bloody Bill's sword. Where did you read this?
I have always wondered why someone did not follow Cunningham to Cuba to extract a little justice. While I know atrocities occurred on both sides during the American Revolution in South Carolina, the (admittedly biased) reports of Bloody Bill seem particularly extreme. Look what happened to the man named Love who served under Bill Cunningham and thought he could return to his home after the War. There was not a court in the state that could protect him.
