Finding Our 'Nace' Butler

Eight men named Nace (or Ignatius) Butler appeared in court in the 1790s to claim their freedom as descendants of Eleanor Butler. Which one was the Nace Butler featured in Historic Annapolis's Freedom Bound exhibit? Answering this question required combing through records at the Maryland State Archives, piecing together fragmentary clues, assembling a puzzle, and making some educated guesses. The short answer to the question: None! But there was a ninth Nace Butler who turned out to be both the right Nace and a twig at the end of a long branch. Learn more about the search for Nace by Dr. Jean Russo.
