  • The 1930 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, reports her middleinitial as E.  One source reports this from a transcription thatrecorded the initial as L.  This appears to be a recording error onthe part of the census officer.

    The sources for the 1930 census I have report the name Malissa EKnowlton (wife of Robert Oregon Knowlton, Sr).  All other censuseshave only the name Malissa.  No name beginning with L is documented inany other available source.

    Documented reports indicate the middle name was Davidson, named afterher mother's family.:
    Malissa E Butler, Wife, Female, White, Age 43, Married at age 18, Bornin Arkansas, Father and Mother both born in Arkansas.

    It appears that the initial E reported in the census is the nameEdward from her mother, Malissa Edward Davidson.  It appears that herfull name is Malissa Edward Davidson Butler.
