Subject: Margaret Butler
I was very pleased to receive your message about being linked to Margaret Butler. That name doesn't currently appear in my in my data files but I'm hoping you are referring to the wife of Adam Earnest (Helwig) Helwick, born about 1832 in Berlin. Family recollections have Adam's wife named Margaret Bagur, but I have had no luck at all finding any reference to that name. If his wife was Margaret Butler, then I am extremely interested in receiving any and all information you are willing to share. If we are talking about the same person, I would be pleased to share information of her descendants down the Helwick line.
