  • There is an entry for the birth of Thomas David Butler in the familyBible birth list, along with all the other children born earlier.  Onthis page, the birth and death dates for Sarah (S A Butler) have beenerased, and no new dates written in.  We note also that the birth datefor Mary Brown Butler is a year later than reported on her grave andin the 1870 census.  The birth list says born 1 March 1871, but thegrave says 1 March 1870, almost matching the report of "Baby" Butler,4 months old in the 1870 census.

    The birth date of the second child, Ben B Butler, has been changedform Aug 7, 1871 to Aug 7, 1872, perhaps to allow for the change ofbirth date for Mary from 1870 to 1871.  Could a similar problem haveoccurred with the birth date for Thomas David, 3 years after the deathof S A, wife of his father George Washington Butler?  Perhaps theyerased the death date for S A thinking it was wrong, but neverentering another date.  Both birth and death dates for Sarah (SA) havebeen erased.
