 Stephen TRAVIS Bible Ė Births 1 | Births 2 | Deaths | Marriages | Transcript | Here is an odd scrap of paper that somebody thought was important enough to save in the bible. It is a list of names. These people may not have all been related, but they certainly knew each other. Front | Back

 John Smith Travis (more), son of above Stephen and Christianne (SMITH) TRAVIS. He lived in Enfield, NY and then Ovid Centre, Seneca County, NY, on what is now Wyckoff Rd. He married Jane NOBLES, daughter of Squire J. NOBLES and Hannah RUMSEY, of Enfield, NY.

 His son Don Smith TRAVIS lived his life on that farm in Ovid (Pictures: 1 | 2 | 3). He married Ada Jane BROKAW (her parents). This is Donís 1876 Diary: Transcript, Images He played fiddle in a band for many years (see diary). We still have his trumpet with some playbills. Here is the Interlaken Miller Band in 1908; I think Don might be seated to the left of the standing man.
