    --  David Lee,

    I have generally found David Lee's reconstructions to be correct andreliable.  However, he provides no documentation or commentary on mostindividuals and facts.  I have photos of graves in the Mt PleasantCemetery, taken by my wife, Edith McSwain Jenkins.  This includes theButlers.  I thought this included all the Butlers, but I have no photoof a grave in the name of Thomas E.

    I have found no public documentation of Ethelbert as a middle name forthis Thomas E.  An earlier Thomas Ethelbert Butler, cousin of thisThomas Ethelbert, was born June 1850 (and reported in some documentsand family genealogies as born in 1872).  Theolder cousins was namedafter his maternal grandfather Ethelbert Abernathy.  Perhaps thesecond Thomas Ethelbert, boin in 1875, was named "symapathetically"after the same person.  I have found no other family name Ethelbert inthe background of the second Thomas E Butler, born 1875.
