Descendants of Moses and Elizabeth Reece Butler
of Transylvania County, NC

Compiled by Philip Underwood-Sheppard

The following FTM report on the descendants of Moses and Elizabeth Reece Butler was generated on October 9, 1999, by Philip Underwood-Sheppard. I am nowhere near having the complete record of Moses' descendants and am in the process of seeing if some research can be done for me in Transylvania County to add to the report. I've included only four generations in an effort to leave out folks who are, or may still be, living. That includes cutting out survivors in obituaries and in some sets of parents' list of children.

A note about veracity of the records and the sources: As with all published genealogy, mistakes will creep in. I have noted in the endnotes either documents or individuals where the information was obtained. Living so far from Transylvania County makes it difficult to do original research among documents, but even documents can be "doctored," say one thing when another was happening. I've tried my best and am completely open to the correction of my data. Dates without endnotes can be attributed to the location of the burial site or my failure to document the source. If it is a cemetery record, the cemetery will be listed. Also, see "A final note" below.

Census records:
1) Macon County, N. C. in the 1850 Census, A Snapshot in Time, compiled by McRae and Leverette Teresita Press,1997.
2) Transylvania County, North Carolina, 1870 Census, Linda Hoxit Raxter, ed., Alexandra's Family Tree House, 1998.
3) 1880 Census of Transylvania County, North Carolina, Frankie Monteith, Franklin, 1985.
4) 1860 Jackson County

Book sources:
1) Macon County, North Carolina Marriages, 1829-1939, by James E. Wooley, Southern Historical Press, 1984.
2) Joseph and Catherine Deck Welch and Their Descendants, by Thelma Welch Swanson. privately published.

Individuals:
1) the late Bertie Galloway Shepherd (Galloway descendants of the Butlers)
2) Donna Head Berg (Ellenburg descendants of the Butlers)
3) Evelyn Huerd (while not related to the Butlers, Evelyn provided information on the Butler/Teague family of Longview, Washington)
4) Linda Hoxit Raxter (who completed a formal search for documents pertaining to Moses Butler)
5) Virginia "Gigi" Foster Creel (Foster descendants of the Butlers)

Other sources:
1) North Carolina death certificates
2) Transylvania County deeds
3) Transylvania County marriage records
4) Jackson County wills
5) Linda Hoxit Raxter's detailed cemetery surveys at Alexandra's Family Tree House.

A final note: If this information is useful to you, e.g. helps you fill in those ever-present blanks, then by all means use the data. But, please, include the sources s a credit to my work and the work of others. It should be noted here that some endnotes didn't transfer from my FTM program: data on the descendants in the Butler/Ellenburg line should be attributed to Donna Head Burg; data on the Jesse Lowe family came from Transylvania County, North Carolina, 1870 Census, Linda Hoxit Raxter, ed., Alexandra's Family Tree House, 1998; and data on the descendants of the Foster/Galloway descendants of the Butler's should be attributed to Virginia Foster Creel.

She married T. A. "BILL" SHEPHERD February 24, 1923 in York County, South Carolina, son of JAMES SHEPHERD and MARY PATTERSON. He was born October 16, 1904 in Macon County, North Carolina, and died October 1983 in Gaston County, North Carolina.

Notes for BERTIE ELLA GALLOWAY:
My grandmother, Bertie Ella Galloway, was born February 01, 1903, in Transylvania County, N. C. She lived in the area of the Davidson River in what is now Pisgah National Forest. (I have yet to discover exactly where the site of the Galloway home was.) Grandma was the seventh child of 11 born to Rufus McKellan Galloway and Susan Clerendy Butler Galloway. I know very little about her early life due to her reluctance to share much about herself.

About 1920, the family moved to Gastonia, N. C., for jobs in the cotton mills. Shortly thereafter, Grandma met my grandfather, T. A. "Bill" Shepherd (1904-1983). They married February 24, 1923, in York County, S. C. Grandpa was working in the mills when my grandmother gave birth to her first child, my father, Carl B. Sheppard.

Seven more children were to follow (in all, six of the eight survived infancy), born in various places, due in part to the difficulties of holding a job in the mill and the fact that my father was involved in the Loray Mill Strike in Gastonia. About 1940, Grandpa bought a home in Gastonia where Grandma was to live until Grandpa's death in 1983. She was all her life a housewife of a mill worker and farmer. I remember her as a very quiet person of little conversation but a sense of wit that showed on occasion.

My father worked in Gastonia during his later years, and everyday at lunchtime, he would drive from his work to Grandma's house for a couple of tomato sandwiches that Grandma always had ready for him.

After the death of Grandpa, Grandma moved in with my Aunt Marie in Gastonia and lived there until her death on December 05, 1986. She was buried beside her husband of 60 years in Hollywood Cemetery in Gastonia, N. C.

Grandma's life had been very hard on her. I rarely saw her smile. She was a small woman, bent over from a life time of hard work in the home and on the farm. She knew only the life of those with few worldly goods. Her small home was a two bedroom affair with a den and a kitchen. She learned while living with her parents-in-law how to can fruits and vegetables, and there was always a stock of the best of the garden. The times I did spend with her were special to me. It was through her occasional stories that I began a journey of falling in love with the county of her birth.
