The present author has not intended to produce a definitive study of the descent

Notes and References
James Jurney, Ancestry of Alice Estelle and Effie Catherine Butner and Related Families
(Bellvue, WA: privately printed, 1992), is said to contain research based on church and legal records. It is probably the most authoritative
book on this line of the family. Regrettably, the present author has not seen this book, but has incorporated references to Mr. Jurney's
1971 extraction of Moravian Church records. Mr. Jurney's book is cited as a source on Faye Jarvis Moran's Butner Family web page. (hereafter
