My grandfather was named George Butler. He was born 1891 in Grayson, La to his mother Jane Harrold. If you look in the 1880 census you can see that the Harrold family lived very close to the Butler family. My grandmother told me the story about a white man who came to Girard selling fruit and one day he saw all of these light colored kids playing in the yard. So he walked up to the door and asked my grandmother for a glass of water and got into some small talk. Then he said he heard that a cousin of his lived in this area named George Butler. My grandmother didnt remember his name but he came back a few times more and he and my grandfather would sit out and talk for hours but she never heard their conversataion. I have a Aunt who has features of Nancy Butler. My grandfather did not talk about his family but he did mention the Cruses from Caldwell Parish. He worked at the Cruse sawmill for 17 years
