About Our Family Research

Hello, I am Marilyn McAllister Fair and I have been researching my family lines for 30 years, and still I haven't found it all.
The lines I am searching are Butler, Smith, Frazier, Lane, Patton, McAllister, Reed, Gravatt, Gowen, Floyd, Woods, Hoskins,and Beasley. There are a few brick walls still needing to be torn down so any person researching the same lines would be most welcome to contact me and share information. The one most important thing I have learned in genealogy research is that you can't do it without help, so contact me and let us help each other. Most information I have on these lines can be documented but some information hasn't been documented although the information seems most likely to be true. Anyone wanting to use any of the information on this site is welcome to do so, but reprinting for making money is strictly forbidden, or republishing without the compilers permission is tacky to say the least. Enjoy and thanks Files will be added very soon. Brick Wall #1

Simon Butler 1776 Indian Territory, married Mary Polly Frazier ca 1830.Lived in Ky. and Tennessee. Known child..Sarah Elizabeth Butler 1838-1840 Ky.Mary Polly Frazier was the
daughter of Micajah and Sally Frazier. Simon and Mary Polly lived in Wayne Co. Ky. in 1840, not found in 1850 and in Whitley Co. Ky. in 1860. In 1840, Simon Butler has a free white female older than himself living with him, name not listed, but is probably his mother, so it appears that Simon's father was native american and his mother was white.

Sarah Elizabeth Butler married Elijah Smith ca 1850-1856 in Indiana, lived in Ky. very long time in Adair Co. Ky. Elijah 1837-1840, parents unknown.Sister Rachel Smith married James Spradling.

The above Simon Butler is a major brick wall, he is listed as both a free colored man and an indian in census records. Listed as indian in daughters pension records.
