I am descended from the family of Nathan Butler of Robeson County,
NC/Marion County, SC. Here is what I have on this family:

times to the present, 1901" by W. W. Sellers, Esq. of the Marion Bar.
Copyright Columbia, SC, The R. L. Bryan Company, 1902.

Isham Butler (b/d unknown) - Letters of administration of his will was
asked for on 25 Feb. 1803. I don't have a copy of the will, but I would
like to get one!)

Samuel Butler (my g-g-g grandfather) was born ca. 1801-02. Since his
youngest daughter was born in GA, I assume the family moved to GA sometime
between 1839 and 1844-45. Samuel was found in the Pulaski Co., GA census
in 1860 & 1870. Samuel & Milly Braswell Butler had the following known
children: (source - census records)
