  • An early anonymous genealogy reporting very early dates for all the children of George W and Sallie Butler reported that Robert H was born in 1869.  However, in the 1880 census, (reported as Harvey), he is only 7 years old.  In 1900, reported as Robert H, he is 25, with a reported birth date of April 1875.  This is a 2-year discrepancy, from 1773 to 1775.
