My grandfather mentioned that he was a cousin
of Merle Travis.
Granddad was Bernis Travis (no middle name)
and was born in Muhlenburg Co., Kentucky on
10/3/1905. He married Marie Johnson
(a/k/a Beliles) in 10/1928.
His parents were Jesse Travis Emma Robinson.
Granddad moved his family from Drakesboro, KY
to Pontiac, MI in 1950. I can provide much
family info since 1950, if you're interested.
