I have been told that some of the Traffelstead/Travelstadt families
changed their surname to TRAVIS?
My TRAVIS family was in Jefferson, Hamblen and Grainger Counties of TN. by
at least 1820. As I can't seem to get out of TN., I am hoping that someone
on this list might have info since Catawba Co., NC. is not far from eastern
TN. Here is my info and THANKS!
