DONNIE EDWINA (BUTLER) BRYANT AFTER THE DEATH OF WILLIAM BRYANT EDWINA MARRIED A MAN BY THE NAME OF W.M.BUTLER OCT 11TH 1894 IN HOOD COUNTY TEXAS -
 
Donnie was the daughter of William BUTLER and Nancy TILL or THIEL etc. William and Nancy married in Union Parish, LA. in 1840. Nancy's dad and his 2nd. wife live in the next parish at that time with several younger siblings. I have not been able to determine who William's father was. In 1860 Nancy TILL BUTLER b: 1820 LA., par. of LA., is in Anderson Co., TX. with several children, next to her dad, and listed as widowed. Children are ( I hope I don't skip anyone as I can't get to my data while my husband fixes my computer ) : James b: 1843 I believe MS., Nancy b: LA., Helen/ Ellen b: LA, & Donnie b: 1851 LA.. Donnie's mother is in HoodCo., TX. on the 1880 US Census. After that we cannot find her so we are assuming something happened to her before the 1900 US Census.
