  • Sources consistently spell John's middle name Pomfert, and hermother's maiden name (including the name of her father) as Pomfret.Some sources also have a middle name for one of John's sisters as MaryPomfret Butler.

    I have seen no reference in any source to this difference in spelling. I would think it inadvertent, since it is an easy typo.  But becausethe difference is consistent it seems to be purposeful.  The Vermonttown is spelled Pomfret.

    I have found that David Lee reports this person, who married MaryPolly Hunt, and father of William H Butler, as John I Butler, but withthe same dates and info as the sources reporting his name as JohnPomfret Butler.

    David Lee also reports different birth information for William HButler, with birth date 4 April 1800 in Granville Co NC, and death in15 Mar 1861 in Panola Co MS.  Other sources report William H (Hunt)Butler born in 1816 in Giles Co TN.
