    Notes:

    From H. M. GiCal, correspondent.     Francis Samuel Butler came toUpper Stewiacke from Old Barnes. He married Mary OliveFisher of Upper Stewiacke Village and settled on a piece ofher father's land (John Waddell Fisher). Their house stoodwhere now stands the only brick house in the settlement,William Redden's place. Later Samuel traded places withHenry Creelman in Upper Stewiacke.     Francis Samuel Butler - Thedocumentation my Aunt has shows his name as F. SamuelButler. He was known as Samuel - all the Nova Scotiadocumentation shows it as Samuel. I think it boils down tothe fact that we are no longer sure about the Francis -there is an Olive Frances in the next generation so thename does show up albeit in the feminine form.
    Henry Cox told this story to Ross Graves in 1961: "Old Mr.Butler was a good old man.  He became very deaf and Iremember in church he used to sit on the pulpit stairs tohear the sermon in the old church here, the one thatburned, the pulpit was way up high, and Mr. Butler would besitting in front up above the heads."
