Life History

Born in Ethel, Arkansas, Arkansas.1,2,3,4




  • The third child of William Morgan Butler and Ada Loora McSwain is reported by David Lee as Martha D Butler.  I find this child listed first in the 1910 census, however, as Dorothy.  This would account for the D in David's lsiting.  However, in the 1920 census, she is listed as Dorothy D.  But family records report her as dorothy Laura.
