I am a Butler descendant seeking information on the 8 sons of James M Harper, second husband of Nancy Belle Nelson born about 1826 Pontotoc Co. MS, married 11-11-1843 to John Davidson Butler in MS. They left for TX after the birth of their first child, Matilda Butler b. 1844. They settled in SMITH county TX. They had more children with 3 of them surviving, Rachael V. Butler who married William Isaack, George Hudson Butler, who married a Bartee first, and Elizabeth Miller second. Callie Butler married T.J. Bartee.
After John Davidson's death in 1855or 1856, Nancy Bell, aka Amancebell, Emma, and more, married John M. Harper. They had 8 sons.
I am seeking Nancy Bells death date approximately June 14, 1916, and the family history of the 8 males.
