Posted by: Br. Robert P. Carver (ID *****2620) Date: September 07, 2002 at 19:27:21
  of 36

In case those interested have not obtained this information,
I am offering it here for your use:

As everyone knews, the surname is variously spelled and I will use whatever spelling was used in the documents.

EDWARD TREVILLION appears in Deed Book D, Wilson Co., TN, p. 162 - SAMUEL ELLIOTT to EDWARD TREVILLION 22 acres on Spring Creek. Bounded by the land of Eli T. Hunt. Dated
August 4, 1808.

HENRY F. JOHNSON to EDWARD TRAVILIAN 25 acres in the 5th District of Wilson Co., TN. Dated February 1839. DB S, p. 131f.

EDWARD TRAVILIAN to JOHN COMPTON, jr. and his wife, LUCINDA,
50 acres in the 5th district for natural love and affection.
DB S, February 6, 1839, p. 133f.

EDWARD TRAVILIAN to JAMES McDANIEL the tract of land he now lives on. DB S, March 19, 1839, p. 145.

EDWARD TRAVILIAN's land bounded a 20-acre tract which BENJAMIN H. HOBSON sold to THOMAS C. TRAVILIAN. DB T, April 19, 1841, p. 167. [Thomas Carr Travilian was a son of EDWARD TRAVILIAN and his wife, SUSANNA CARR]

EDWARD and THOMASD C. TRAVILIAN to John C. MANN 50 acres in the 5th district. DB X, March 31, 1848, p. 114f.

EDWARD TRAVILLIAN to THOMAS C. TRAVILLIAN 120 acres in the
5th district. DB X, June 18, 1842, p. 394.

EDWARD TRAVILLIAN made his will September 8, 1848 and it was
admitted for probate October 1, 1849. [Quarterly Court Records,(QCR), 1848-1852, p. 116. It was recorded November 13, 1849,[Wills and Inventories,(W&I), 1848-1863, p. 121f.]
Provisions abstracted:
(1) son, JAMES T. (or Y.) TRAVILLIAN
(2) son, THOMAS TRAVILLIAN
(3) daughter, NANCY
(4) son-in-law, WILLIAM HARRIS, husband of NANCY
(5) daughter, SALLY and her living children
(6) grandson, MATTHEW BREEDLOVE, son of SALLY
(7) granddaughter, MALINDA ANN ENGLAND
(8) daughters: LUCINDA and CANDACE
(9) executors, THOMAS TRAVILLIAN and MATTHEW BREEDLOVE
witnesses were CARLOS G. CLAY, JOHN A. CLAY, who proved the will on October 1, 1849. No bond was required to be posted.

There is no mention of a yrs provisions being allotted to a widow and/or family, so this would confirm that SUSANNA CARR TRAVILIAN was already dead and no minor children were
left residing at home.

According to a settlement made October 22, 1851 {Administrators and Executors Settlements, (A&ES), 1850-1858, p. 80, "The other extr moved off soon after he qualified. Six shares. Heirs: JAMES T. TRAVILLIAN, Mrs. NANCY HARRIS, THOMAS TRAVILLIAN, and three others. Mrs.
SALLY BREEDLOVE's share is to go to her three children. Mrs.
CANDIS BAKER's share to go to her three children. [The sixth share was LUCINDA TRAVILLIAN COMPTON's.]

The following TRAVILLIANS posted marriage bonds in Wilson Co., TN, up to and including 1850:

CANDIS TRAVILION to WILLIAM ENGLAND, August 11, 1828, with
JAMES T. TRAVILION as bondsman.

ELIJAH E. TRAVILIAN to NANCY CARR, January 11, 1849, with
JAMES ARRINGTON, JP, officiating.

JAMES TRAVILLION to ELIZABETH MATTOX, March 22/27, 1823, by
ELIJAH MADDOX, MG.

JOHN TRAVILLION to MARY CARSON, March 8, 1810, with JOHN
McNELLY, bondsman.

THOMAS TRAVILION was bondsman for WILLIAM LAVENDER and ELVIRA MOORE, February 29, 1832, by THOMAS P. HOLMAN, JP, returned March 1, 1832.

Regarding the ancestry of the CARR family, for those of you
seeking to find "full blooded Cherokee" in your lineage, you won't find in in the CARR family.
