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

    Both these names, Milus and Marion, occur in Butler families from Carolina to California.  The strong Butler stream in migration from north to south and west seem to be all related.

    I have attempted to fill out all the connections in this genealogy, whose primary focus is on other families to whom the Butlers are related.  But there are signs of connection in that migration band from east to west.
