He got a grant of 100 acres on the north side of the river by Mine Creek.

When the Revolution, in which he did not fight, was over, South Carolina became a state and the 96 Districe was divided. Now Travis was in the new Edgefield County. In 1812, when he died, his estate was valued at $4232.12 and he had 4 daughters, 3 sons and his wife, Ann Smallwood, who survived him.2
