Query: Sophia Littrell ??

From: Byron Butler

     My name is Byron Butler and I live in Madison County, Alabama.  I'm
doing some research on my Butler family History. My g-g-g-Grandfather was
Gabriel Butler of Lauderdale County, Alabama. Sometime around 1820 Gabe
married a Littrell woman (I have seen her name listed as Sophia but I'm not
sure about that) - I think in Lauderdale County but I'm not sure.  I was
wondering if you have any information or any suggestions on how I might go
about finding some information regarding this Littrell lady - She is my
g-g-g-Grandmother.  Any help will be appreciated.

From Betty Gay to GDL

".....I noticed a query from you or Byron Butler about Sophia Littrell. I have a copy of an old Gabe Butler family history by Charles G. Butler written 1934 in Amarillo, Texas.  Gabe Butler was born in N.C. about the time of the Revolutionary War.  His second wife was Littrell woman whom he married in North Carolina and their family walked to Doublehead Reserve Indian Territory (Lauderdale CoAL) before 1810 *
    Gabe Butler and my Gresham (Grisham) ancestor Thomas Gresham were listed on the Petition (below*) as settlers or "intruders" on Chief Doublehead's lands.
    Charles  G. Butler said Gabe Butler was of English descent and the Littrell woman was Irish descent. Janice and Lynn Butler, Lexington Al. have a deed (original) where Gabe Butler sold property about 1834 to Daniel White. Janice has Gabe's wife listed as  Sophia Littrell Butler in her research. 
    I have not researched Littrell-Butler in N.C. but would start in Chatham Co. NC.  My White ancestors in Lauderdale CoAL came from Chatham Co., NC about the same time as Gabe Butler.  Also a Colonel Literal had a regiment in Chatham Co. NC. in the Revolutionary War and a General Butler.  Which may indicate Littrells and Butlers living in the same area.
    If you or Byron need copies of the old family history ___ let me know.
    Please send me any additional info you have on Sophia Littrell-Butler.  I don't have any idea if she is related to our Littrell line or not."
