    Notes 
    • Listed as "Ann Brown", b. Illinois, on son Gilmer's death cert. Also called Julia and Julia Ann in censuses. Record of marriages licenses and groom's index in Pocahontas Co, calls her "Qintel Butche", but I think this is just bad transcription. Marriage bond clearly says Juliet Butcher. Request for marriage license filed by Ralph Wanless says Julian Butcher. Consent witnessed by John Wanless and Andrew Nichols.

      Parentage a mystery. There are no Butchers/Bouchers/Buchers etc. in Bath Co. in 1810 or 1820, except Sally in 1810 who lives alone. In 1810, there are some in Botetourt & surrounding counties, but it's impossible to tell which family Julian comes from. 1880 census says her father was born in Germany. Based on how her dau. Lovenia looks in her portrait, some descendants think she might be part Indian.

      Possible relations:
      1818 Aug 29: Marriage bond of Bayles G. Butcher and Patsy McNeal. Surety, James Laird. Abraham McNeel consents for dau. Patsy. Witnesses, Jas. Laird and Washington McNeel. Returned Aug 13 (yes, earlier) for Ayles G. Butcher and Patsy McNeal by John Pinnell. [Bath Co Marriages, p.53]
      -- This is the only Butcher marriage in this book.
