I am also looking for information on Travis (Trivis, Trevis - I have seen all three spellings) Parks. It may be two different Travis Parks' from Tangier but both were married to a Margaret at about the same time if my info is correct.

Here is some of the info I have compiled so far. I hope that I do not have any of my references crossed with a different Travis Parks.

The photos begin with Charles Murphy and Phoebe Cannon and have Lewis Parks and Frances Murphy as well as George Murphy and Golda Hurley. If interested I can email them to you or you can find them here on my tree.
