My GGG grandfather, Champion Travis Traylor, born 1821 Jasper, GA, was living with his family in Burnet when he was murdered in or near San Saba on Aug. 10, 1855. Family lore has it the killing was made to look like it had been done by Comanches, but no one was ever sure that it was not done by whites. I would love to locate a grave, but fear he died so early in the county's history that he may have been buried alone, or in a grave no longer marked. Appreciate hearing from anyone with so much as a sliver of information. My GG grandfather, Champion Travis Traylor, was born to his widowed mother on Dec. 24, 1855, in Burnet and went on to be a school administrator and justice of the peace in Hutchinson County.
I asked this on the Burnet County site, and was urged to post here as well.
