I don't know if my info will help anyone here, but I was in Mississippi last year researching Aaron Butler. I found a Guardianship Bond by a younger Aaron Butler, born about 1802. In 1850 he lived in Attala County, MS, had a wife named Mary and a son Lewis. I'll be happy to send it to anyone who can use it.
I was searching for Ford Butler, born 1839 in AL, died 1864 in the Civil War. Ford Butler's gr-grandson has done DNA testing and so far we are unable to match it. Has anyone in the Aaron Butler line done DNA testing? Thank you, Nancy Tiner Diggs
