    In 1900 Benjamin and Ida and family are living next door to FrankNicholson and two of his chidlren, Huldah and Wilber.

    I see that in 1900 the birthplace of Ida is reported as Alabama, bothon her entry and those of her children.  But in 1910, on her entry,her birth state is shown as Arkansas, but on the children's entries,it is reported as Alabama.

    Alton here matches other information for Sam Perthshire Butler, born 4March 1904, according to family genealogies.  Alton was named Alvin inthe 1920 census.  Their son Knowlton was born on 12 April 1910, sojust missed getting counted this year.  They had another son namedClark born in 1912.

    In 1920 living on one side of John Benjamin and Ida is CharlesKnowlton, Ida's brother.  Two houses away on the other side are Leeand Carrie Criswell and next door to them Thomas and Lyda Criswell.In 1930, it appears the Butlers have moved, and are on Ethel and ChuteRd next door to Wiley Carew McSwain, with Manuel Criswell living onthe other side of the McSwains.
