Hi again,
When I was looking at your list of 13th Calvary Co K, I came across this memorial. He couldn't have been in the Civil War.
He was born in 1860. Could it have been his father, b. 1845 or a different David McElroy. Sorry if I'm causing problems.

Hi BC,
This is my gr gr grandfather. He was born Aug 6, 1837 died in 1920. Can you please check & see if he was in the civil war?
I just saw a census record from The Shy Geneologist that said he was also a part of the 13th Calvary from KY. You found my
Other gr gr grandfather, Wesley Wilson was in the 13th Calvary, Company K.
Thank you so much,

RE: Capt. John Butler
I don't check my mail very often either and just now saw this. I had the same response to the Illinois info you did. But the cousin who gave me the material insisted and sent a record. So I went searching and found that what she insisted was true.. I have records of land purchases and evidence of his remarriage to Prudence Rutherford in Illinois. It LOOKS airtight on paper, but confusing because of the family stories. The marriage was not a lengthy union and altho i find his land in Illinois listed as going to his heirs, I find no evidence of a burial there or anywhere else. Mt Pleasant is an assumption, logical and the story told in Nathan's bio, but can't be verified yet.
A Rutherford family was in Adair or Green with the Butlers in earlier days. I will go fishing for my records and can either link you or send copies. Two heads are always better than one. if you have other interpretations of the data I would be glad to hear it. Best, Judy
