MJ History: The deeds of Colonel Robert Butler
Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Donna G. Ferrell

Special to The Chronicle

We have another piece from Donna G. Ferrell this week. This one is titled “The Deeds of Colonel Robert Butler.” 

The writer asked her niece, Diane Weathers, to trace the deeds in Wilson County of Robert Butler. Using the landmarks and local names in the deeds, she found the place, the original 640 acres of Robert Butler. Weathers came by with a map and off we went on a road trip. We traveled west on Central Pike (not here in 1820), turned on Chandler Road (not here in 1820), and went to the crest of a hill (here in 1820).

The result of their efforts eventually became the Vietnam Veterans of America organization (VVA).
