William Jenrial Butler

By the time of the 1900 U.S. Census Florence and William had moved to Spokane, Washington, as had Florence's parents and some of her siblings. Based on the places of birth of the children in both families it seems that the move took place circa 1884. In 1900 the Butler family rented a house on Fourth Avenue in Spokane; William worked as a stonemason and eldest daughter, 19 year-old Lua, was employed as a stenographer.

As of the 1910 U.S. Census Florence and William owned their home on Fourth Avenue; William owned a building construction company and 23 year-old daughter Anna was a bookkeeper. I was unable to find William in the 1920 U.S. Census, which shows Florence living with the family of married daughter Lua DeGraff on Pacific Avenue in Spokane.

Florence and William were the parents of five children, all of whom were still alive as of 1910:
* Lua M. Butler (Mrs. George) DeGraff (born circa 1881 in Missouri; died after 1930, probably in Spokane,)
* Rose Butler (Mrs. Carl Williams (born circa 1882 in Missouri; died 1972 in California,)
* Orville Butler (born circa 1885 in Washington,)
* Anna L. Butler (born circa 1886 in Washington; died after 1920,) and

Abstract by Marsha Holland (Copied by James Holland) 1997. "With his Brother Edward was a provider for the Continental Army in 1776, based on warrants issued in Williamburg. Was apparently paid in 1776 to remove a cannon from New Kent Court House to Cumberland Town in New Kent County, Virginia. Was a soldier in the infantry in the Continental Line 2.3.2, -- received the balance of his pay, in January, 1783. According to Audit Accounts XXI , P 287.
    He married Pamelia (or Permelia) Love, about 1760 or 1762 and Mary Law 1800.
    Said to have been living near Lynchburg in 1770, at the time of the birth of his son Charles H. and Petersburg, Virginia when his son William Briscoe was born. Was living in Green County, Tennessee, at the time of the birth of his twin daughters Lydia and Jane.
    His Brother-in-law, Samuel Love, was declared in Green County court proceedings conducted in July 1838, to be a Revolutionary War Veteran who died intestate in 1804 or 1805 at the home of Thomas Love, in Green County. Similar proceedings in Fauquier County, Virginia, in July, 1835 list his heirs as a Brother and two Sisters : Thomas Love, Pamela who married Robert Warren and Pensathela, who married Richard Gill. Richard Gill was also a soldier in the revolution and apparently was living in Bertie County, North Carolina at the time of the 1790 census." Image.

On his D.A.R. marker at Louisville, Blount County, Tennessee is July 14, 1745 - October 7, 1826. He served as a Private in the Continental Line of Virginia during the War of the American Revolution. He married first in Charles County, Maryland, to Martha Briscoe daughter of William Briscoe and Ann Dent, second to Parmelia Love, December 27, 1767, third to Mary Law, who died by 1824. Some references list only two wives and two sons who died in their youth; Barton Love, born August 15, 1770, died 1797, and Humphrey.  During dam construction by T.V.A. for flood control of the Tennessee River, Ft.

Kentucky, stated that Robert’s daughter, Susannah, was born in 1779 in Virginia.  Robert came to Greene County, Tennessee in the 1780’s.  The village of Warrensburg, about 17 miles southwest of Greeneville on the Little Chucky Creek, is situated on his land grant, which adjoined Col.

Maryville Times, (Blount Co. TN) Wednesday, November 23, 1892:

"Gone To His Reward---Barton L. Warren, one of the oldest and most noted citizens of this section, died at his residence, Louisville, Tennessee. Mr. Warren was born in Virginia in the year 1800 and was consequently ninety-two years of age.

When seven years old he came with his father, a pioneer Methodist preacher, and eleven other children to Knoxville.  The older Warren settled on First Creek, near the river.

The subject of this sketch entered upon a successful business career at an early age, and at the outbreak of the war was the wealthiest man in Blount County, owning a vast estate and many slaves. To each of his children at the time of their marriage he gave a handsome sum to start them in life.

He has always been a kind neighbor, and willing at all times to lend a helping hand to those in need. The destitute never left his door empty handed.

Mr. Warren was well known as an active politician. As a Democrat he stood at the head of the list. He was an active worker for his party’s interest and voted the ticket from his majority up until the last election. At this he was too feeble to go to the polls, this being the only election that he missed since he came of age.

James K. Polk was a great favorite with the old gentleman. He gave an entertainment in honor of Polk at one time, to which he invited 500 people. They were bountifully fed.

Messrs. C.W. Steele and L.S. the well known real estate dealers of this city, are his grandsons and they speak in the highest terms of the old gentleman’s many good qualities.

He attended the Democratic rally just before the election in 1884. As the procession passed through Gay Street [Knoxville] he sat in front of the Hattie House and cheered as lustily as any young Democrat in the town.

The next morning as he bade Mr. C.W. Steele’s family good-bye he remarked with tears in his eyes: “I never expect to be in Knoxville again,” and he never was.

Mr. Warren is the last link in the neighborhood that connects the present generation with the long age.
He was a good citizen, lived to a good old age, and those who have so familiarly known “Barton” Warren in times gone by, will regret that the old landmark is gone, and will trust that his reward is sure. ---Knoxville Journal. Mr. Warren was the father of Mrs. W.M. Steele of this place.

He is accepted as a Virginia Revolutionary soldier by the DAR, based on reference 8-C-200, Williamsburg, Wednesday, 12th June 1776: “Ordered that a warrant issue to John Pendliton for use of Robert Warren, for three pounds, nineteen shillings, and six pence, for provisions furnished Captain Stephens and Captain Hayes, their companies.” 8-C-225, Williamsburg, Thursday, June 27, 1776: “A warrant to Robert Warren for 2.9.6. for removing cannon from New Kent Court House to Cumberland Town,” New Kent County. Also, the records of the distribution of certificates for the balance of full pay agreeable to the Act of the Assembly passed in November 1781. The record lists him as a soldier in the infantry. James Driver received his pay of 36 pounds on January 24, 1783. James Driver served in the 11th and 15th Regiments of the Virginia Continental Line. The 1850 Census of Clay Co. Kentucky, stated that Robert’s daughter, Susannah, was born in 1779 in Virginia. Robert came to Greene County, Tennessee in the 1780’s. The village of Warrensburg, about 17 miles southwest of Greeneville on the Little Chucky Creek, is situated on his land grant, which adjoined Col. Henry Conway’s land. It appears that the Warrens, Conways and Loves all came to Greene County about the same time and had known each other previously. The Conways and Loves had probably first known each other in Fauquier County, Virginia by the time of the Revolution. There are many Robert Warren land transactions listed in the Greene County deed books and from these it is shown he was taxed on 512 acres on Jan. 25, 1809 and three black polls. He moved to Blount County, Tennessee between Jan. and Nov. 1809." Image.
