In Reply to: Re: JAMES (JIM) BUTLER by Lynette Bordwinw-Irizarry of 583

I believe James Butler and Sarah Hill Butler had more children than I have listed. Also, Mother called Aunt Nan's husband Ed. It was told that Mollie had been married to John Wilkes Booth, he had escaped and was a Texas school teacher who taught Alonzo to read. There are internet stories about this. On the 1870 census there are other Butler children that we did not know.
