Our Family Tree


We are researching the Travis family from Westchester County, New York. Garrett Travis first appears in New York in the mid 1600's, but not much is known about where he was before that. He was married to Katherine sometime before 1660 and they had two daughters: Hannah, Mabel and four sons: John, Phillip, Robert, and James.

In addition, we are researching the Galpin, Ogden, Dusenbury, Thorne, Fowler families of New York. Later during the Revolutionary War, Loyalist Elizabeth (Fowler) Travis moved to Cumberland County, Nova Scotia with her remaining family. Her husband William was killed during the fighting and his brother Daniel claimed the family land in New York. In Nova Scotia we are researching the names: Newcomb, Church, and Hoeg.

As well we are researching the Scragg, Dick, Frame, Stretch, Ripley and Houghton names in England, Pearshall/Pearsall names in Normandy and the Weir, Campbell, Gemmill and Murdoch names in Scotland

The areas that we are interested in are: Westchester County, New York, Dodge County, and Otter Tail County, Minnesota, Cumberland County, Nova Scotia, Balestrand, Sogn og Fjordane, and Beiarn, and Alstahaug, Nordland, Norway, Skartofta/Öved, Harlösa,and Vollsjö in Malmöhus lån; Häradshammar in Östergötland lån, and Hintze, Sontag, and Cronholm names in Sweden, Lillejord and Kleven names in Norway and the Mennonites of Manitoba, Russia and Prussia, specifically Bartsch, Penner and Sawatsky surnames.

Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
