Surnames: Travis Gatewood Ingram Sledge West
At this time, pre-civil war, the Travis family was a wealthy family with slaves and land. John Travis' marriage liscense to Mary West was found and one thousand dollars bond was posted for their union. A John Travis is mentioned as the guardian for an orphan James M. Travis page number 415. Listed as Guardian accounts 1848-1868. Year most likely 1862.

In Caswell Cty., N.C., book T - 1864, April Court 1864, pg. 47, the will of John Travis - Will - w. 4 Mar. 1864. Wife Mary B. Travis all estate of her life to be used to benefit of children. At her death, all estate sold and equally div to surviving children or grandchildren. Tract of land in Rockingham Cty., to be sold. Exec. friend W. H. Gatewood. Wit. H. E. Hodges, R. A. Gatewood.

I believe John's brothers to be Isaac, Ellis, and Stephen. There is an entry on pg. 216, book S, 1860, Samuel S. Harrison exec. of Archibald Ingram decd account current. Bonds collected on Isaac Travis, John Travis, Stephen Travis. Paid Wm. H. Bailey atty. fee, Archibald Hatchett for coffin, Rev. John Stadler $5. Paid S. S. Harrison for services rendered old man A. Ingram for his lifetime $200.
Tursey and Mary Ingram (sisters) married Travis brothers. William and Marion Travis listed as grandsons of Archibald Ingram. He supplied bonds on Isaac, John, Stephen, and Ellis, April 1858 - April 1853. April 1858, book S.

John Thomas Travis was a farmer who along with the Travis family owned a lot of land and slaves until the civil war. The civil war brought about the demise of the Travis fortune due to the downfall of the Southern currency of the Confederacy.
