Zephaniah and Delia's household appears in the 1850 Burlington Twp. Census directly following Hubbard Compton's household. Zephaniah is listed as "C. P. Travis" in this census. Llewellyn's name is spelled "Lulllen."
Zephaniah and Delia appear in their son's household in the 1880 Sayre, Athens Twp., Census. Llewellyn's name is "Levely Trevis." Zephaniah's name is misspelled or misread as "LeJermiah." Both Zephaniah and Llewellyn work for the railroad according to this census. The only children listed in the household at this time are Carrie L., Gideon C., and Greer.
Zephaniah d. (?) and is buried in the Thomas/Christian Church Cemetery, Riggs, Smithfield Twp., Bradford Co., PA, and his grave is near Hubbard Compton's grave.
A distant cousin gave me information confirming Zeulema's brother's name as Llewellyn, and that he had six children. He also confirmed that the names of three of the children were Carrie, Gideon and Greer and added the names Grace and Rosa. He told me that Llewellyn moved his family west to Wisconsin. Grace Travis eventually married and moved to Washington state. He also confirmed that Delia was a Compton, however, I would like to substantiate this if possible.
I am trying to locate the following information:
1. Was Zephaniah's wife indeed a Compton?
2. When did Zephaniah pass?
3. Any info on Delia (birth, death and resting place)?
4. Any info on Llewellyn Travis or his family--wife's maiden name, names of all children, births, deaths, spouses, later descendants, etc.).
5. Info on Hubbard Compton and his spouse.
I am descended from Zephaniah and Delia as follows:
Lynne B. Howell/Sue L. Bergquist/Helen C. Lyon/Walter Edwin Campbell/Zeulema Travis Campbell/Zephaniah and Delia (Compton?) Travis.
Any information on these families would be appreciated. I have gleaned much of the information regarding the Travis and Compton families from the Tri-counties Genealogy site by Joyce Tice. Information regarding the Campbells and connected families I have gotten from this site and the Campbell Genealogy.
