Here is a tree for Nancy Butler at familysearch. If you haven't already, you need to set up an account, but it is free. You might want to look through it. I don't know how much more time I will have for it tonight.

It traces her back to a Walter Butler, born 1685 in Lancaster, VA.

If you are confident in their research, then zero in on the county. For each generation, google the county name and the family name, like "Walter Butler, Lancaster Co., VA" or "Butler family history Lancaster Co VA" and you might turn up a person's private website, county history, or family history book that has more on them.

dont google the county without the state name. There are lots of duplicates in the US. I know there is a Lancaster Co in Pennsylvania, for example.
