I was looking for other information today in Marion County, Arkansas history
book and noticed this BUTLER family information.
The History of Marion County, by Earl BERRY, c. 1977, by Marion County
Section: Pioneer Families of Marion County
J. A. BUTLER, a native of Tennessee, was a member of the Confederate Army.
His wife was Agnes CROW, who traced her ancestors to the Crow Indians.
After making the trip over land to Marion County, Mr. BUTLER secured a
homestead. He was a minister and preached throughout the vicinity for many
years. In 1896 he went to Texas where he bought land. He resided there
until his death in 1908 at the age of 67. He was active in the ministry
until the end.
A son of J. A. and Agnes BUTLER was H. C. BUTLER, born in 1862 in Marion
County and died in 1914. His entire life was spent in this county. He was
a merchant at both Summit and Flippin, having spent three years at Summit
and five years at Flippin.
He was a Justice of the Peace at Flippin during those five years and later
served in the same office while living in Yellville. He was a Democrat and
Mr. BUTLER's wife was Amanda V. NOE, born in 1866 She was a daughter of A.
J. NOE, a native of Kentucky. He was one of the first white settlers,
locating in Yellville. He engaged in the manufacture of boots and shoes and
served as postmaster for 25 years.
Mr. and Mrs. BUTLER had five children: Virgie who married T. V. RUSSELL;
Ellen, wife of R. L. HAYES; Elbert who married Cora McCRACKEN; Gus who
married Jessie FLIPPIN, daughter of T. H. FLIPPIN; and Maud who married W.
