note: John Solomon, William W., Samuel, and Peter Travelstead appear to be the founders of the Illinois 'Travelsteads'.

note: In 1842 John Solomon and William W. left Kentucky for Texas. They crossed the Ohio River at Shawneetown IL, on an old ferry boat and proceeded into the Illinois wilderness. They and their oxen arrived in what now is Crab Orchard where they camped for a few days. While at camp a storm arose followed by a heavy rain. The group headed back for what is now Harrisburg IL..
On Dec 10 1842 John Solomon and Nancy had their ninth child John Solomon Jr.
When John Solomon Jr. grew up he subsequently changed his surname and moved to Tennessee where his father had lived before coming to KY and IL.

note: William and Hannah Travelstreet and Samuel and William Travelstead also came to IL in the mid-1800's (it has not been confirmed but is believed they may have accompanied John Solomon and William W. Travelstead on their journey in 1842.)
