Decendants of Nathaniel and Juliette (Griffin) Travis

Decendants of Nathaniel and Juliette (Griffin) Travis

Posted: 26 Jun 2007 7:09PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: TRAVIS, TRAVERSE, TRAVIES, TRAVISS
I am in the process of putting together a TRAVIS Family book. The Travis family has been in Walworth County since the 1850's. Nathaniel and Julie Travis settled in Lyons, WI. If anyone has any information on their decendants please let me know. I believe Nathaniel's father was Daniel and Nathaniel was born in Genesee Co., NY. I have a lot of information and would be more than will to share but can always use more info for my book.
