I'm looking for any information anyone might have on my great-grandfather, James Abner Butler, b. 5/28/1860 in AR or MO, d. 6/4/1944 in Healdton, OK. He married Minerva Ann Peacock 7/27/1890 in the Keller-Newport area in Indian Territory, near what is now Ardmore, OK.
Jim knew very little about his family. His parents separated when he was young and he lived with his father's other family. He thought his mother was named Ruth and his father's name was probably James. He had a brother named Lum (?), and one named John who may have lived near Gravitt or Marysville, AR. His sister or half-sister may have been named Molly George.
The information I have about Jim was given to my father by my great-grandmother when she was in poor health. She may not have remembered correctly.
If this rings any bells with anyone, please let me know.
