Polly RIANS/Philip TRAVIS- 1824 East TN.
Posted by: Debbie Blakley Date: December 05, 1999 at 22:04:10
  of 33

On a marriage lisc. for my ggg-grandfather
Philip TRAVIS, it states that he married Polly RIANS, Feb., 1824, in Jefferson Co., TN. The marriage bond was additionally signed by a John Lackey and a Robert Hamilton.

Polly (may have been Mary (Polly)?) No proof of that though.

Polly & Philip had several children together. She may have died or they divorced, as Philip remarried in 1836 to Sarah Morris, in Jefferson Co., TN.

As the word February was also mispelled on this bond it is possible that this surname should have been spelled differently. I DO find some RIANS in the area but I also find a William RYANS living next door to my Philip on the 1830 Census. But no Polly anywhere!

If you have any info on this marriage or related families, please e-mail me directly after posting here. My e-mail address is blakley3@earthlink.net. Many Thanks, Debbie
