David T. married Martha Jane Poindexter c. 1842 in Louisa County. I also had found the two children you mention, Robert L. Butler and Sarah Elizabeth Butler. David remarried (c. 1851) Angelina Krise (from Orange Co.?) and they had several children - so far I've documented; Sophia Angeline, William David, Mary Ella, Preston Julian, Phillip and John Wesley. There also may have been a Joseph. My husband's GGrandfather is John Wesley Butler. It is reported on his death certificate that he was born in Louisa County, VA on 21 March 1861, however his tombstone in Scottsville gives the year as 1862. On Sarah Elizabeth's death certificate, the name given for her mother is Elizabeth Poindexter. Sarah Elizabeth was very tiny - not much over four feet tall(I have one picture of her). She lived with John Wesley and his wife, Ella Carson Phillips, at the Butler farm on Route 6 east of Scottsville, until her death in 1938. Aunt Sophia also spent a lot of time at the farm in her later years. David T. Butler, Angelina, Sarah Elizabeth and Sophia Angeline are all buried at the Mt. Zion Churchyard in Esmont, VA. Preston Julian and his family are buried there, too. John Wesley died on 12 January 1946 in Richmond, Virginia at the home of his daughter, Agnes Angeline Butler Gianniny.
John Wesley and Ella had three children, Claude Phillips b. 1897, Lindsay Wesley b. 1899 and Agnes Angeline b. 1902. Claude Phillips Butler was my husband's grandfather.
... I ran across a deed dated 4 December 1900, where Ella "buys out" other family members who have an interest in the farm property in Albemarle. Three names I am not familiar with are Walker P. Butler, Henry W. Butler and James C. Butler. I've wondered if they are possibly brothers of David or perhaps heirs of children who predeceased David?

Robert L. Butler is my great-great-grandfather. Many of his descendants still live in Louisa County. Robert L. Butler first married Angelina Gibson and had Julia Lee, Alice M., and Robert N. Angelina's mother was a Krise. Then Robert married Luella Wayland and had Catherine Lee (Katie) and William David. They grew up in the Green Springs area of Louisa County and the property adjoined Doctors Road.
I am descended from Julia Butler's children. She married Beauregard Butler and had many children, one of whom was my grandmother Lillie. Lille married Sam Vogt and they had a home off Doctors Road as well.
Katie Butler also married a Vogt, and he was Eddie Vogt the brother of Sam. They had many children, too, and also grew up off Doctors Road. Three of their children still live in Louisa and I have regular contact with them. One is Raymond Vogt, one is Eddie Vogt, Jr., and one is Elnor Vogt Whitlock.
By the way, the third child [Martha Jane Butler] of David and Martha Jane Butler wasn't born until after Charles Poindexter's will was written. That's why she is not named in the will. My Note - then how is it her mother is noted as deceased?

Charles POINDEXTER and Sarah MAY were married on 9 January 1792 in Louisa County, Virginia.67 Sarah MAY was born (date unknown).
