I do have (unverified) a David b. ca. 1787 in NC, a son of Johann Valentine Butcher (Metzger) - he would be a younger brother of Barney.Re Stephens - the only Stephens I have (also unverified) is Katherine, b. 1798 and marr. on 12 Dec 1815 to Solomon Butcher.Haven't run across any other Stephens.I think I'll try to do more investigation of the Butchers and see if anything turns up to support your thought that Mary first marr. a Butcher and then Conrad. Please stay in touch.
