Chuck, I have posted a will that seems to be linked to the post you made. My interest is in the Butler family, let me explain Robinson Lingo Butler left a will in Worcester County, MD; mentions his siblings Sarah, Samuel and Priscilla. It was left as Robinson was entering the Rev. War. He never returned from the war. Any thing you can add to help find Robinson Lingo Butler's parents will be appreciated. Dale Jones <>
