I can't add anything re. T. J. Traughber, but I do descend from his father-in-law, William Eddy. Another daughter of William and Clarissa (Adkins)was Margaret (1829-1912). She married first Robert N. Rust who was killed in Civil War. I descend through their son, Taylor Rust. Margaret married 2nd to Jacob A. Smyer, who was also killed due to Civil War. She married 3rd to Rev. William Jasper Morris.
In a round-about fashion, I do have a connection to the Traughber family. One of Taylor Rust's daughters, Mary (my ggrandmother)married John M. Higginbotham. John M. had a sister, Burton B. who married a William T. Traughber. Not sure how or even if he connects to your Thomas J. Traughber, but I suspect he does.
