Re: Happy New Year Travelstead Cousins
Thanks for the reply, I did know all about the ship and have seen Christian's signature.
Do you know where Catherine (Kate)Treffenstatt is buried and what surname is on her gravestone? Is her husband buried with her? She must be in or near Claremont NC where she is reported to have died? Do you know the name of the cemetery? I'd be much interested to know this.
What branch are you from? Mine is Christian, his son William Travelstreet, William's son Samuel Travelstead, Samuel's son William Jasper Travelstead and William Jasper's son John Blaine Travelstead, who was my grandfather and John Blaine Travelstead's daughter Minnie Gertrude Travelstead who was my mother.
Just a tidbit Jefferson Alexander Travelstead, son of John Solomon Travelstead and grandson of my William Travelstreet was supposedly the founder of the Southern Illinois "Street" families? Where is your "Street" family from?
Any info you have would be appreciated and if I can help you in any way let me know.
