This is what I have:
William Thomas Butler B: Abt 1864 in Alabama Died: Between 1920 & 1930, probably in Alabama, possibly Anniston City, Alabama. He was married only to Sarah Elizabeth "Lizzie" Tally Butler (My mother, Lizzie's Grand-daughter, was named Sarah after her). Lizzie was born 25 April 1874 in Jefferson County, Alabama. She Died: 2 May 1938 from TB of both Lungs - Cavity Formation in Waco Texas while living with her son, Mack (MacDonald) Butler. Before her death, she had also lived with Sally's & Ethel's Families in Mississippi. She is buried at Rosemound Cemetery located in Waco, Texas.
Thomas & Lizzie had, as of the 1920 census, given birth to 6 children with 5 living:
1 --- Martha Frances Butler (McKeehan McDowell) Born: 2 SEP 1894 in Chepultepec, Blount County, Alabama. Died: 14 FEB 1960 in LaGrange, Troup Co, GA. She is buried at Hillview Annex Cemetery in LaGrange, Troup County, GA at the foot of her second husband, Spear McDowell. She married firstly John Eason McKeehan, SR. Secondly after his death, she married Alexander Spear McDowell. John & Martha had 8 children together & John had 4 children from a previous marriage to Luvina Deese in which she died shortly after a difficult child birth that the baby did not survive either. The 3 living children from his previous marriage were raised by their Mother's parents as Deese's.
2 --- Sally Jane Butler (Glass) Born: 1897 in Chepultepec, Blount County, Alabama. Her Death date is unknown to me. She married John Gilbert Glass. Their children were: A) Kenneth Murell Glass who had at least one child named Lisa Glass Sullivan who is living & I would love to hear more from; B)Shula Glass, male, born about 1920; Inez Glass, female, born about 1923; Maxine Glass, female, born about 1925; Arthur Glass, male, born about 1928; Olan Butler, male, born unknown; Evon Butler, female, born after 1930.
3 --- Butler Infant born & died BEFORE 1900
4 --- James MacDonald Butler Born: 1 Aug 1900 in Oneonta, Blount County, Alabama. Died: 29 Dec 1965 in Waco, McLennan County, Texas. He is buried at: Waco, McLennan County, Texas in Robinson Cemetery. He has a large family & is very well respected by his family members.
5 --- Ethel Butler (Presley) born about 1910. She married Charles Presley born about 1904. The child they had as of the 1930 Census was Marion L Presley, born about 1927.
6 --- Harry Rembert Butler b: abt 1914 place Unknown. d: 6 Jan 1975 in San Angelo, Tom Green, TX. Rembert died as a result of TB as well. I do have the name of the Cemetery from his death record, but it is on my other computer at this time.
As of the 1930 Census, William Thomas Butler had passed away & Lizzie and their youngest son, Rembert who was 16 at the time - were living as boarders with Lizzie's 2 married daughters, along with their husbands' and their children. I am unsure if the home was Ethel's or Sally's but it was located in Beat 3, Yazoo, Mississippi. Lizzie is also listed by her first name, Sarah, in the 1930 Census. In other census & civic records she is listed as Lizzie & Elizabeth.
Ok, so I need Lisa Sullivan & Pamrene Butler to help me out here. Also, any other of the children/grand-children of this Family. For the LONGEST time this branch was a complete brick wall. It has crumbled in the last year & I would LOVE to complete it with up to date info. My tree hides info on living relatives from the public. I will share ALL my info with you on Martha, as a matter of fact, it is all posted on the McKeehan Genealogy Message board, if not here then on Ancestry. I also have some Memorials for Sarah Elizabeth "Lizzie" Tally Butler & Martha Frances Butler McKeehan McDowell on Find-a-grave.com that you might be interested in. Also, another Butler family member has a Memorial on there for Mack Butler. I sure wish I knew where Thomas William Butler is buried. I could make him a memorial too if I knew just a little about his burial.
I'll be waiting to hear from ya'll! I can't wait! I have some free time to research lately & am anxious to get much done.
