Frederick Alfred Buttrick came to America in the early 1900's from his home
in Epworth, England, where his father was parish organist. He settled
in Atlanta and married Ellen Belk, a native Georgian. They had one
daughter, Mary, who became an accomplished organist and played at Park Street
Methodist Church in Atlanta and at First Methodist Church in Hapeville, Georgia.
Mary married an Atlanta Methodist minister by the name of Denny C. Starnes.
After the decease of all the Buttricks, their family home was left to the
North Georgia Conference to be used as a home for retired ministers.
Scope and Content Note
When Frederick Alfred Buttrick left England for America, his father gave
him a hand-made book of English hymn tunes. The volume is comprised
of both original compositions by Buttrick's father and traditional tunes.
