1848 Emma was born in North Aston, and her parents are John Butwell and Mary French. They married in 1847, 3 August in North Aston, The witnesses are Jesse and Emma French. John is dead by Oct 1850. The death record is under the name Buttwell (two 't's). Emma Butwell would be just 2 by the time of his death. So she probably she wouldn't have known much about him.
