Hi Pennie,
I am researching my TRAVIS/BUTLER families who also lived in the area of Hamblen Co., Tenn. (Morristown?) during the same time frame as your family. I believe that my gggrandparents were David and Mary TRAVIS and James and Virginia BUTLER. They may have stayed or died in Hamblen Co. But my ggrandparents, Joseph N. TRAVIS and wife Ellen (BUTLER) TRAVIS moved on to NE Texas around the Fannin/Bonham Co. areas, between 1890 and 1900. From there(abt. 1910) they moved into southern Okla. around Atoka and Johnston Co.s. Some other related BUTLER famiy members stayed in Texas around the Dallas/Rockwall/Garland/Wylie areas. My ggrandfather's sister married a HILL and was living in Talbott, Tenn. Last contact with that family was in 1935.
What other surnames are you researching? Maybe some of this info might lead you to some other distant relatives. Possibly we can trace some of our folks together. Also searching;
BOYLE(S)/KEYES/BARRY and many others. My e-mail address is be changing soon) Thanks! Debbie
