Ephraim Travis, Jefferson County, Tenn., filed a claim with the Southern Claims Commission in 1871. He signed "J. Ephraim Travis.' I believe the J. may be for 'John' (a long-lost gg uncle) or James, his brother. Giles Whitehead is listed as a witness. He and his family live near the James Travis family in 1870 in Jefferson Co. Does anyone have any information about Ephraim?
