BUTLER ARNOLD, OF SC, GA OR TN?
My ancestor Butler Arnold married Rachel Hudson in Wilson Co., TN on 7 Nov. 1816. Their daughter Angelina is my ancestor.
Rachel was born about 1795-97 so I figure Butler was probably a little older. He was dead by 2 June 1824 or else Rachel divorced him (I have checked the divorce records of Tn and found nothing) But, Rachel married Matthew Horne on 2 June 1824.
Angelina may not have been an only child.
But, she is the only one I know of.
A Butler Arnold is listed as a soldier of War of 1812 from TN.
However, I have found another Butler Arnold b. about the right time who was married to a Patsy___ in GA. and had a daughter by her a Mary Elizabeth Arnold who married a Hiram Shaw. It is possible that these two Butlers are the same for, the daughter in GA was born in 1809. My Angelina wasn't born until 1819.
Some of the other Arnold marriages in Wilson Co., in the same year were David Arnold and Susannah Bryson and John Arnold and July Brown both in 1816.
Is anyone else looking for these people ???
