Billie, I am working with another Butler/Pope Researcher and from some of
the notes she has sent me she references this website
http://www.tcarden.com/tree/ensor/FoyNotes2.html for documentation for the
attachment of Russell Wilson as the third husband of Mary Elizabeth Foote
Simpson Butler. I have not verified this but it gives a hint of authenticity.
