Traweek Family Genealogy Forum
You may be right about George dying in the Civil War. I checked the 1860 Alabama Census for Fayette County, Fayette P.O., Middle Division, and found a George Traweek on page 504. He was listed as head of household #492. His age was 45 and he was born in Georgia. This would fit with the same George Traweek that was married to Rhoda Howell Traweek. Also in this household was Daniel Traweek, age 28, Mary Traweek, age 19 and Idelia Traweek, age 1, all born in Alabama. It appears that Daniel and Mary may have been a married couple and Idelia was their infant daughter. I have no idea what relationship George was to them. Maybe he was the uncle of Daniel Traweek.
It's entirely possible that George sent Rhoda to Texas to be with her sister so that she wouldn't be in Alabama during the Civil War. I wonder if Newton Traweek, their son, stayed in Alabama to fight in the Civil War. He would have been 20 in 1860 but he isn't living with Rhoda, nor with this George, nor is he listed in the 1860 Fayette County, Alabama Census. Unless of course, he is the Daniel listed and his name was Newton Daniel Traweek and the age is wrong. I don't have a middle name for Newton. Please let me know if you find out anything else about this Traweek family. Thanks.
