    --  David Lee,

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

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