    Notes 
    • Thomas H. Travers

      His father returned to England last year (1878) He began work under the most advese circumstances, being chained down by poverty, but by indomitable pluck of energy and business judgement they have succeeded until now they own 835 acres of land, 770 of it lying in this county. The father and son have always worked together as partners. Thomas has been to California where he has worked in the gold mines. He has a coal bank on his farm here out of which he annually takes 32,000 bushels of coal. He is rather extensively engaged in the manufacture of cider, making from 30,000 to 50,000 gallons each season. [1]
