One of my ancestors was James Franklin Butler who had a son by the name of Absalom. This may be the Absalom you are looking for. According to my records James Franklin was born in 1749. I do not know where, may have been in Virinia. He died in 1836 in Newberry Co, S.C. Absalom was born in 1996 in S.C. (Probably in Newberry Co.) James also had a son whose name is Hosea Butler who was born in 1787 in Newberry Co, S.C. Hosea is my great great great grandfather. His daughter Elvira Susan Butler married James Dyson Powell who is my great great grandfather. Unfortunately I do not have the descendents of Absalom.
