Other Notes

John Butts, carpenter from Charlotte, NY leaves his sons Aaron and Thomas his carpenter tools.

 

David Butts from Dartmouth, Freetown and Fall River, MA was born in 1760 to Gideon and Alice Butts and had a son William in 1791. No trades could be found except that William was a painter in 1842 and 1843. Town histories were checked as well as town records searched for Freetown from 1799 to 1806. Nothing. This remains an open question.
