My 2x Great-Grandfather Henry Butter was born 1816 in England. He immigrated to Louisiana in early 1840's, married there in 1847 and died in 1880. His naturalization papers were burned in the court house in 1865 (Civil War).
His brother, John Butters, who I have researched, was naturalized in Jefferson County, NY in 1841. He was born in 1811 in Chatham, Kent, England (Christening record). On that record the father was John Butters, the mother was Susanna (may have been Susanna Wells). The father, John, was supposed to have followed a career in the British Army as a Bugler and had a home in Kent. I cannot find a Christening record for Henry. Supposedly, there were two other children: Thomas and Ann (she married a Nickerson). Birth dates for them are unknown. Also, Henry said on the 1880 census that his father was born in Scotland and his mother in England. He promptly died in October 1880 so there is no more information available after 1880.
Henry Butter is Butter-102, His brother John is Butters-317 The name in England sometimes has the "s" and sometimes does not. The brother John and his family used the "s". Henry's family did not.
I am happy to provide whatever other papers or information that might be needed. If someone can at least point me in the right direction, I will be so grateful!
