Life History

27th Sep 1877

Born in Ethel, Arkansas, Arkansas.1,2




  • The name is spelled variously in Davidson and Butler sources andcensuses, as Melius, Milius, Milas, etc.  The 1880 census which wesite spells the name Melus.

    Both these names, Milus and Marion, occur in Butler families fromCarolina to California.  The strong Butler stream in migration fromnorth to south and west seem to be all related.  I have attempted tofill out all the connections in this genealogy, whose primary focus ison other families to whom the Butlers are related.  But there aresigns of connection in that migration band from east to west.
