      Son Nathaniel,
      Brother Lawrence,
      Sons William, Lawrence, Joseph, John and Caleb; land to each of my sons; my wife.

      Edward White note: However .... Deed and Will Book 8-126, 10/2/1729, pv 11/26/1729 Will of CHRISTOPHER BUTLER lists the children. Joseph was not one of them

      Here is some glimmer of info:
      DW S-23, 8/28/1748, 11/5/1748 JOSEPH & ANNE [CARTER (MARSHALL)] BUTLER to HUMPHREY POPE, 137 ac bounded on east side of Main Rd, line of trees div this and John Pope, formerly William Butlerís to Spring Branch and along it to Beaver Dams, which divide this from WILLIAM QUISENBURY; along Beaver Dams to mouth of a run where formerly a Mill; up run to Sp Ok on west side of the run; along line of trees to gum div this from Mr. MCCARTY, formerly belonging to WILLIAM LORD; along branch to mkd r/o; S 28 to Main Rd. and along it to begin.
      DW S-39, rec 2/14/1748/9 exam of Anne Butler in Stafford rec in WCO

      No doubt at all in my mind that this is the land of John Butler:
      9 February 1663. Westmoreland County.
      Description: 350 acres beginning on the south west side of the branches of Beaver Dams of Popes Creek, adjoining land of Thomas Pope.
      Source: Land Office Patents No. 5, 1661-1666 (v.1 & 2 p.1-369), p. 220 (Reel 5).

      Joseph had to be some descendant of John. In 1667, John sold 100 acres of the grant to Wm. Quisenbury. DW 1-308, 1/17/1666/7, 3/22/1666/7. Christopher (2)'s land adjoined to the southwest and west.
