Title: Parents of Orphans, NYC
Description: Looking for the parents of 4 Travis orphans, born in New York City. They are: Willis Joseph Travis, b. 1823; Susan Travis, b. 1825; William Levi Travis, b. 1826; and a fourth son of unknown name. I am descended from William Levi who went by Levi. The 4 children were apparently orphaned at an early age. I am looking for any records that would show birth (probably church, Methodist Episcopal), probate or adoption records from the period 1820-30. Death certificates that I have indicate the parents were unknown.

Title: Travis orphans
Description: I am researching this as well for my brother in law. He said that there was a story in the family that those parents were both killed in some kind of carriage or cart accident in NYC. This is all I know and will keep searching.
