The only other Butner known to reside in Christian Co., or even in Western KY, in 1809 is Edward. Isaac was taxed in 1805, but returned to Madison Co. in 1806.

He married Keziah (Butner) circa 1795.(8) Keziah was born circa 1775 in probably, North Carolina. Keziah died at age unknown. Kiziah Butner in the 1830 Madison Co. KY census claimed to be age 30-39. The wife of Adam in the 1810 census was then age 26-44. Either Keziah was celebrating her 39th birthday often, or Adam had two wives, or the 1830 decedent Adam was Adam Jr. Keziah was granted dower of 1/4 to 1/3 of Adam Butner's land 28 Oct 1830; a map is on p.103 of Will Book vol.E.

Adam Butner of Kentucky and Keziah (Butner) had the following children:

•10 i. Adam3 Butner Jr. of Kentucky was born in Madison Co, KY circa 1799. Adam died at age unknown. Presumed to be the eldest son, the boy age 10-14 in 1810 census. Madison County Court Order Book F p.219, Feb 1, 1830, notes petition from Keziah Butner, proved by Adam Butner Jr., to appoint William Butner as adm'r of estate of Adam Butner, decd.

•11 ii. Dicy Butner was born in maybe, Madison Co, KY circa 1800. Dicy died at age unknown. She married NotNathan Roberts September 15, 1822 in Madison Co, KY.(9) NotNathan was born circa 1800 in maybe, Madison Co, KY. NotNathan died at age unknown. Madison Co. Will Book F p.109, July 17, 1835, admin settlement of estate of Meshack Butner, records Dicy Roberts as one of heirs (and also Viney Roberts). 1810 census of Adam Butner shows 3 girls age 0-9.

•+ 12 iii. Vina Butner was born circa 1801.

+ 13 iv. William Butner was born February 10, 1802.(10)

•+ 14 v. Elizabeth Butner was born circa 1809.(11)

•15 vi. Meshack Butner was born in probably, Madison Co, KY circa 1814. Meshack died 1835 in Madison Co, KY, at age 21. Madison Co, KY Court Order Book F p.232-3 records Meshack Butner, orphan of Adam, choosing William Butner as his guardian, being over 14, Apr 5, 1830. Will Book F p.79 has inventory of his estate; p.109 has adm. settlement, Dicy and Viney Roberts are each one of his several unnamed heirs.

4. Edward2 Butner (Ancestor of early1)(13) was born in probably, Rowan Co, NC circa 1783.(14) Edward died 1834 in Madison Co, KY, at age 51.

He married Nancy Arnette June 22, 1818 in Madison Co, KY.(15) Nancy was born circa 1798 in North Carolina. Nancy died at age unknown. She had marriage banns published June 22, 1818 in Madison Co, KY.(16) The evidence that Nancy Butner of Sullivan County, Indiana, is the widow of Edward Butner is strong: the 1840 Indiana census ages of daughters match the 1830 Kentucky census and the will; in the 1850 Indiana census she resides next to Bluford Arnett and his wife Jennett, she of appropriate age to match Ginnetta of the will. The only loose ends are the boys, one age 5-9 in each of the 1830 and 1840 censuses. He of 1830 was not in the will; he of 1840 might be Edward's posthumous child.

Edward had marriage banns to an unknown person published June 22, 1818 in Madison Co, KY.(17) Madison Co. KY Will Book F p.27 has will dated 11 June 1834, prob. 6 Oct 1834. Leaves all to wife Nancy; at her death to be divided among my children namely Rebecah Ginnetta, Elizabeth, Nancy Kesiah, Louisa and Viny Butner. Exr:Squire Million. Wit:Turner & James Pinkston. (Are there 7 daughters, or 5?)

•25 i. Lucinda3 Butner was born in Indiana circa 1846. Lucinda died at age unknown.
Third Generation

12. Vina3 Butner (Adam2, Ancestor of early1)(19) was born in maybe, Madison Co, KY circa 1801. Vina died at age unknown.

She married Nathan Roberts February 12, 1824 in Madison Co, KY.(20) Nathan was born circa 1800 in maybe, Madison Co, KY. Nathan died 1834 in Madison Co, KY, at age 34. Nathan had marriage banns to an unknown person published February 9, 1824 in Madison Co, KY.(21) Inventory and sale of his estate occurred 31 Dec 1834, recorded in Madison Co. KY Will book E, pp. 68 & 91. P.86-88 of same has adm. settlement, bal. $683.48; one of heirs is Daniel Roberts; one of adm. is Francis Roberts.

She had marriage banns published February 9, 1824 in Madison Co, KY.(22) Madison Co. KY Will Book F p.109, July 17, 1835, admin settlement of estate of Meshack Butner, records Viney Roberts as one of heirs. Nathan Roberts was security for adm. of estate of Adam Butner in 1830. 1810 census shows AdamButner with 3 girls age 0-9.
na Butner and Nathan Roberts had the following children:

•26 i. Malinda4 Roberts was born in Madison Co, KY circa 1831. Malinda died at age unknown.

•27 ii. Nathan Roberts was born in Madison Co, KY circa 1833. Nathan died at age unknown.


•28 iii. Twyman Roberts was born in Madison Co, KY circa 1836. Twyman died at age unknown.

13. William3 Butner (Adam2, Ancestor of early1)(23) was born in Madison Co, KY February 10, 1802.(24) William died February 1860 in Madison Co, KY, at age 58.

He married twice. He married Nancy Lowery February 15, 1821 in Madison Co, KY.(25) Nancy was born circa 1800 in maybe, Madison Co, KY. Nancy died before 1845 in maybe, Madison Co, KY, at age unknown. She had marriage banns published February 10, 1821 in Madison Co, KY.(26) The date of this marriage matches the 1830 census record with 2 children 5-9 and 2 ch. 0-4 for the William Butner who is not Sr. or Jr. Against the connection of this marriage with the son of Adam and the 1846 mar. to Foster are the lack of any other mention of this family, and the naming of the Foster children, Adam & Keziah, although the latter could be renamings if the first family perished in an epidemic or accident (or war).

He married Catherine (Jane) Foster March 24, 1846 in Madison Co, KY.(27) Catherine was born circa 1829 in Madison Co, KY. Catherine died at age unknown. It's a stretch to suggest that Catherine, bride of William, has metamorphosed into Jane, widow of Whatsisname, son of Adam Butner. However, no marriage of another Butner to Jane Foster is recorded, and Kizziah's age is right for the marriage date. Could it be that Jane is a 2nd wife from MO, keeping John Foster's grandchildren Kizziah and Adam?

William was employed. William had marriage banns to an unknown person published February 10, 1821 in Madison Co, KY.(28) The parents of this man are guessed because he named his children Adam & Kizziah.

17. Lena3 Serena Butner (Adam2 Butner, Ancestor of early1)(36) was born in Madison Co, KY after 1816. Lena died at age unknown.

She married Turner Hughes April 20, 1834 in Madison Co, KY.(37) Turner was born circa 1810 in maybe, Madison Co, KY. Turner died at age unknown. Madison Co. Court Order Book F p.233, Apr 5, 1830, William Butner appt. guardian of Lena Butner, orphan of Adam Butner, she being under age 14.

Williams January 6, 1881 in Estill Co, KY.(39) Sarah was born circa 1861 in Estill Co, KY. Sarah died at age unknown.

He married Ester (Tyree). Ester was born circa 1835 in probably, Tennessee. Ester died at age unknown. Parents presumed because of adjacent residence in 1860 census and probability of naming a son after wife's father.
