  • Notes 
    • Asa served as Justice of the Inferior Court of Butts County, Georgia from 9 September 1850 to 23 January 1853, and a second time from 12 February 1857 to 23 January 1865.
      Asa made his home at Sylvan Grove on land he bought from his father. He was a silk merchant. Legend has that Asa fell in love with Lucie Jane Manley when she was only nine, and he told her father he would wait for her. He spent the time in between filling the house with things he bought on his trips to New York. Sylvan Grove was used as headquarters by General Francis Blair during the ten days the northern army passed through Jackson. Only the house was left intact. The house has been remodeled and slightly restyled since Asa Buttrill built it in the 1830s, but it remains largely the same with the same surroundings. The home and some of its history is discussed in the History of Butts County, Georgia, compiled by Lois McMichael, 1978.
      According to the 1860 Census of Butts County Slave Owners, which appears in the same book, Asa Buttrill lived in the Jackson District and owned 30 slaves.
