Butler Ford comes from a story that my greatgrandmother told me about her father, uncle, and two neighbor brothers that enlisted together during the civil war. They all farmed along Butler's Fork creek with a ford being between the two homes. As they became known amongst fellow troops and NCO'c when a 4 man detail was needed "Butler's Ford" was frequently yelled. One of the neighbor brothers was killed, one became so ill he was released from the army, and the uncle lost a limb and he too was released. This left my greatgreatgrandfather, he continued to be known as Butler Ford.
