Robert Fabius Butler


Robert Fabius Butler came to Dallas Co. in the fall of 1854. He was one of the organizers of Mt. Calvary Baptist Church, which organized on Dec 19, 1865 and met in the Elm Grove school house until May 26, 1867, when the school house was destroyed by a storm. A house of Worship was then built near Mt. Calvary Cem. and later moved to the town of Richardson in 1895. The name of the church was changed to First Baptist of Richardson in March 1954. Mt Calvary cemetery is located near I-635 and Coit road in north Dallas TX.

Robert and Mary lived on a farm of 50 acres on Campbell Rd, west of Westshore Drive. (Just around the corner from where I now live!!!) The farm was given to them by a Butler relative in Ca. One of the sons had killed the father and had moved from the farm to California to avoid his prosecution. This letter
is in the Deed Records of Dallas Co.
