Ignatius and Elizabeth Traweek were my gggrandparents. They ran a boarding house in Demopolis, Marengo Co., Alabama. Riverboats ran up and down the Black Warrior River. A passenger who was sick was brought to the inn--he had yellow fever. Within days, Ignatius, Elizabeth, and son Thomas died of the disease. This left seven children. This was in October 1853. I have a cross-stitched death certificate with their hair, done by a daughter. Elizabeth Curtis' father Thomas Roe Curtis had gone to Texas and had to return to get the children. The baby was given to people in Enterprise, AL, and one daughter was already married and gone to Tennessee. The rest went to Texas. I have lots of info on the family, including the estate records of Ignatius.
