    Hello, Thank you for your email.  Matthew O. Butler was my greatgrandfather.  I did not know him, but I did know Fairlee Tichenor, mygreat grandmother.  They actually had four children:  Matthew, KirbyB., Rosebud (who married and became Rosebud Nicholson), and BenjaminCalvin.  Matthew died as a baby or small child.  Rosebud, my favoritegreat aunt, died a couple of years ago at around 93 years.  BenjaminCalvin died in 1985.  He either killed himself or was murdered.  KirbyB. was my grandfather; he died of a stroke or a heart attack in 1975.Kirby Bonner Butler, Sr. (my grandfather) had 3 children: Kirby BonnerButler, Jr. (my dad), Pamela Butler, and Greg Butler.  My maiden nameis Laurie Lee Butler.  I have a twin sister and two brothers.

    John Benjamin Butler's parents were Thomas F. Butler (born inGranville, NC in 1802, died in Panola, Mississippi in 1851) and MaryElizabeth Ingram (born May 30, 1809 in Brunswick, Virginia and diedMay 10, 1855 in Panola, Mississippi).  They had 8 children:  Rufus AButler, John Benjamin Butler, Infant Butler, William H Butler, FrancesM Butler, Francis M Butler, George W. Butler, and Robert James Butler.

    Thomas F Butler's parents were John Pomfert Butler (born March 31,1770 in Granville, NC  and died June 18, 1837 in Giles, Tennessee) andMary Polly Hunt (born May 21, 1771 in Granville, NC and died in 1857in Giles, Tennessee).  They had 9 children: Mary Butler, Sarah Butler,William H Butler, Thomas F Butler, Nancy Butler, Elizabeth Butler,Jane H Butler, John Isaac Butler, Memucan Hunt Butler.

    John Pomfert Butler's parents were Isaac Butler (born abt 1744 inCulpepper, Virginia and died May 13, 1809 in Granville, NC) and MaryAnn Pomfret (born March 31,1749 in King William, Virginia and died in1821).  These are a list of children I found for them, I'm not sure ofthe accuracy:  John Pomfert Butler, William Butler, Nancy Butler,James Hunt Butler, Polly Butler, Patsy Butler, Isaac Butler, SarahSally Butler, Mary Pomfret Butler, Ormand Butler, Elizabeth Butler.

    Isaac Butler's parents were E G Butler (born in Berwick, Scotland anddied in Culpepper, Virginia) and Mildred Lewis.  They had twochildren:  Lawrence Butler and Isaac Butler.
