    1. ([AFAM-JEFFRIES])Re: Jefferis, etc, pronunciation
    2. Maureen Ames
    3. My maiden name was Jefferis. My father was from Omaha, Nebraska. He and my mother split when I was a youngster. My mother pronounced the name “Jeffries” and I was always called “Jeff er is” by my parochial school teachers. My mother used her pronunciation because she said that the Omaha clan used it that way. Very truly yours, Maureen Jefferis Ames

Va married Ridley Hawkins 1849 in Whitley Co Indiana. they are both buried in Jeffries Cemetery there. Harbert and wife Ridley had 6 children, ( I know of Mortimer's court battle and all) I am interested in Martha Jeffries his sister, who married John Vaughn, they lived out their lives in Calvin, Cass Co., Michigan and had 5 children. one of their daughters Amberilous Vaughn married into out Bass family, she married Moses Bass who was born in Ohio 1858, moved to Kansas with family, left them all behind when father and mother passed, 1874, and he went to Cass Co. Michigan, where he married Amberilous they had 6 children, he died 1097 from stroke. I have tried for 20 years to find out why he would leave his siblings behind as he was the oldest, and go to Michigan as I can not connect him to any Bass line up there. Moses' parents were John Bass NC and Sarah Taborn I believe her last name was also from NC. Thank you. Lena Bass

    1. ADMIN NOTE Please Read
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! Please read this important message and save it for future reference. On Tuesday, August 15, 2006 RootsWeb is preparing to migrate this mailing list to a new list management system called Mailman. The old system was Smartlist and it was fast becoming obsolete. Everything will automatically migrate, so there's nothing you will need to do except to continue sending and receiving messages to the list that are on topic. For list subscribers, the changeover should be smooth. However, there is one significant change you should be aware of. The new system treats both the digest ("-D") and regular delivery ("-L") lists as a single list with two delivery options- digest or regular. This means that the "-L" or "-D" is dropped from the list name within the system so the list becomes AFAM-JEFFRIES (NO "L"). The address for sending messages to the list will now be AFAM-JEFFRIES@rootsweb.com . Please make a note of this important change. If you use the old address, it might bounce to me, your list administrator. If you're one of those list members who subscribes in both list and digest modes, you will no longer be able to receive both the digest and the regular delivery ("-L") versions of the list at the same email address. If you're subbed in digest mode, you will automatically be moved to list mode, and if your'e in both, you will be in list mode only. If you wish to receive both L and D modes, you will need to use a different e-mail address. One address for List and one for Digest. You can subscribe and unsubscribe from list or digest by sending your "subscribe" or "unsubscribe" message to a single email: AFAM-JEFFRIES-request@rootsweb.com. To subscribe to the list digest, continue to send your "subscribe" email to AFAM-JEFFRIES-D-request@rootsweb.com. Other changes you might notice include: - Changes to the layout, volume and issue numbers of the digests. - New "welcome" and "goodbye" and other messages. - New message footers. - The "from" email will be different (no "-L") so some messages may be sent to your "junk" folder. If you use filters, you will need to change them. If you have any questions concerning all of the changes, please e-mail me off list at reberkheiser@earthlink.net . Thanks, Rick B List Administrator

    1. Robert Jefferis bio
    2. This bio was recently posted on the Rootsweb mailing list called PA-OLD-CHESTER. This mailing list is devoted to the geographic area originally encompassed by Chester County in Pennsylvania ... this includes current Chester as well as parts of adjoining counties and even parts of current Delaware. If you explore this mailing list, be sure to check the archives. Also checkout the Chester County website; http://www.pa-roots.com/~chester DICK FOLKERTH Dallas, Texas The bio follows; it's pretty long. From FUTHEY, J. Smith & COPE, Gilbert, History of Chester County, Pennsylvania, 1881; p613 JEFFERIS, Robert, is first mentioned as a witness at a court held at Chester, September, 1685. In 1691 he purchased 60 acres of land near the middle of Upper Chichester township, whereon he probably resided for some years. In 1701 he purchased 169 acres in East Bradford township, and having sold that in Chichester, removed to the last purchase. In 1703 he was appointed constable for Westtown, Bradford not being then organized. In 1721 he added to his possessions by purchasing 189 acres from William Buffington. He conveyed the homestead in 1733 to his son Benjamin, reserving a life estate, and having divided his other land between his sons, he does not appear to have owned any at the time of his death, in 1738. His first wife was Jane, daughter of George and Jane Chandler, to whom he was married about 1692. After her death he married Ann ___, by whom he had one child. His widow married Richard Archer prior to 1745, and surviving him, died at the residence of her son, Richard Jefferis, in Tell township, Huntingdon Co. The children of Robert and Jane Jefferis were Patience, m. to Henry Betterton and ___ Mackey; Charity, m. to John Evans, and again, in 1721, to John Cope; William, m. to Elizabeth (Ring) Neild; James m. March 3, 1728, to Elizabeth (Tull) Carter; Robert, m. Eleanor ___ and Elizabeth Harper, a widow; George, m. Lydia ___; Jane m. to Joseph Skeen; Anne, m. to Alexander Duncan; Mary, m. to Thomas Temple, of Caln; Benjamin, m. to Elizabeth Carter; Thomas, m. to Catherine (?); John. William Jefferis resided to Chester township for some time after his marriage, but after his father's death he purchased the homestead in East Bradford and removed thither. He died 11,23,1777, and was buried on the 25th, at Birmingham Meeting. His children were Mary, b. 5,29,1727, m. William Marsh, of Sadsbury; William b. 3,12,1729, d. 1778, m. Hannah Darlington; Martha, b. 1,8,1731 m. William Bennett; Nathaniel, b. 11,8,1733, d. 9,30,1823; Hannah, m. John Hunt; Samuel, b. 10,6,1736, d. 2,28,1823; Nathan, b. 5,6,1741; d. 1777. The descendants of William and Hannah (Darlington) Jefferis are very numerous, but mostly in the West. Nathaniel Jefferis married his first cousin, Prudence ___, and had seven children. He afterwards married Mary, daughter of Isaac Chalfant, by whom he had eight, of whom the late Isaac Jefferis, of Newlin, was one. Samuel Jefferis was married 11,24,1759, to Margaret, daughter of John and Joanna Townsend, of East Bradford, born 7,27,1742, died 7,9,1832.

Horatio Townsend Jefferis married, March 27, 1816, Hannah Paul, born April 19, 1790, died March 23, 1851. They resided in West Chester, and had children,--Minerva; William Walter, now cashier of the Bank of Chester County; Emily Jane; Martha Ann, m. Charles Fairlamb; John Paul, now of Washington D.C.; Horatio Carpenter and Mortimer Townsend, lately Episcopal minister of an English Church at Dresden. James Jefferis, son of Robert and Jane, married Elizabeth, widow of George Carter, of East Bradford, and settled on the Carter homestead on the west side of Brandywine, at Jefferis' Ford. His father conveyed some land to him on the east side of the creek, and he purchased from the Worth family 150 acres on the west side. He became a member of Birmingham meeting in 1738, and was appointed an overseer in 1743. He died in 1745, but his wife survived him many years. They had three children, -- James, Abigail, who married Thomas Williamson, and Emmor. James was born Nov. 20, 1728, and married, Dec. 23, 1749, Ann, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Cheyney, of Thornbury, born Feb. 21, 1727-8, died at the age of seventy-six years, six months, twenty-seven days. He inherited his father's lands on the east side of the creek, where he died in 1807. His children were Mary, b. 9,9,1750, m. to Thomas Hickman; Emmor, b. 1,18,1752, d. 10,8,1822, m. Rachel Grubb; Betty, b. 3,17,1755, d. 1,5,1838, unmarried; Hannah, b. 10,19,1757, m. to Moses Hickman; Jane, b. 10,7,1759, d. 3,16,1849. Her son Chalkley, b. 11,17,1789, d. 11,4,1870, was a mason and builder, and in conjunction with William Ingram erected many important public buildings. Cheyney, b. 4,26,1762, d. 4,6,1828; Jacob, b. 9,26,1764, d. 11,20,1840, m. Elizabeth Cope; Ann, b. 9,24,1767, d. 6,5,1768. Cheyney Jefferis learned the hatting business, but became a farmer. He married, 11,26,1790, Mary Bennett, b. 11,29,1762, died 9,2,1807, daughter of James and Hannah Bennett, of Pennsbury., He married again, 3,22,1810, Martha Sharpless, b. 4,27,1775, died 4,30,1854, daughter of Joshua and Edith Sharpless. He purchased a farm eastward of and adjoining that of his father, now owned by his grandson, Edwin James. His children by the first wife were Hannah, m. to John James; James, Titus, Cheyney, Mary, m. to James Bennett; Edith; and by the second, Ann, m. to Moses Sheppard; Lydia, Martha, and Joshua; all deceased except the last, who is one of Chester County's model farmers, residing in New Garden township. Emmor Jefferis, son of James and Elizabeth, inherited the land on the west side of the ford, where he died about 1802. It was he who was compelled to guide the British army towards Birmingham Meeting on the day of battle. He married, in 1757, Elizabeth, daughter of Benjamin and Sarah Taylor, on Pocopson Creek. She died 7,11,1793, aged about fifty-three years. They had three children, -- James, b. about 1758, d. 1,25,1822; Emmor, b. 3,2,1769, d. 8,8,1813; and Sarah, who married Dr. Joseph Moore. James as a sea-captain, and owner of the vessel "Neptune," which sailed from Wilmington. Later in life he settled down on his farm in East Bradford, now of E.H. Holley. He also became the owner of his brother Emmor's share of their father's land by purchase from the heirs. Capt. Jefferis is represented in the name by his grandson, Bayard Jefferis, of West Chester. Emmor Jefferis, his brother, married Charity, daughter of Samuel and Lydia Grubb, born 12,30,1762, died 3,10,1836. They had children,--Sarah, mother of Hon. John Hickman; Grubb, Curtis, Joseph, Benjamin, Lydia, John S., Elizabeth, Anna, Charity, Emmor, and Abigail. Of these, Anna, widow of Isaac Trimble, of West Bradford, is living at the age of eighty-four years. Emmor Jefferis, the youngest son, was the grandfather of Rev. William Jefferis, of Neward College, Delaware. Richard Jefferis, the youngest son of the first Robert, born about 1730, settled in Huntingdon County, and had a large family of children by two wives, the names of twenty-two being known. His son Mark, born Feb. 10, 1787, died Feb. 11, 1877, was the father of Gen. Noah L. Jefferis, sometime register of the treasury at Washington, D.C. Robert Jefferis the first was probably born as early as 1670, and some of his grandchildren were living in 1879, making an unusually long period to be covered by three generations. The name is differently spelled in different branches of the family, but by those in Chester County it is written Jefferis. --- Candace Roth

    3. Hello list, Except for - [1.] the Clarke Co., Va. clerk who mis-spelled it JEFRIES on our [indian/mulatto] grandfather' marriage record - And, [2.] the Allegheny Co., Pa. census-taker who once spelled it [my line] JEFFIRES - And, [3.] all the various other [my line] 1600, 1700, 1800s, and 1900s spellings in other Va. & Pa. records; Some with "y" spellings - We, [4.] in this 1900s & 2000s line spelled/spell it JEFFRIES, as did the last of our 1800s Fauquier, and Rappahannock Cos., Va. [English/indian?] biological ancestors. I've seen it said, that fourteen different spellings have been found for this surname line. Thanks... "Jeff"/ Pa.

    1. Jefferis, etc, pronunciation
    2. GREETINGS ALL I am a Jefferis researcher, but I recognize the spellings used on all the Jeff* lists as credible alternatives. Which is to say ... I don't believe I spell it 'right' and everyone else is 'wrong'. All the variations seem to me to be credible phonetic solutions. So I posted this to seven lists. Apologies if this upsets anyone, but I needed to do this to get the full range of responses to the question at the end of the post. Background; I used my family's pronunciation of Jefferis ( jef' reez ) in a phone call recently with a distant cousin of my Darke County, Ohio, Jefferis clan. And my cousin ( who lives in Dayton, Ohio ) told me they had changed the pronunciation ... because people kept spelling it wrong ... to jef' ris. That seemed interesting, so I checked with my only living Jefferis first cousin ... in New Jersey. He, too, changed the pronunciation, to jef' ur is. Wow; three people and three pronunciations. Then I checked with some distant cousins in California. They said they had always heard it pronounced jef' urz. You can see where this is leading; how do YOU pronounce your version of our name ?? I am primarily interested in responses from the those who spell the name Jefferis, but since I feel the other spellings are credible, as well ... then everyone is invited to contribute. Thanks in advance. DICK FOLKERTH Dallas, Texas My Mother was a Jefferis.

    1. [AFAM-JEFFRIES] Obituary Tips
    2. Obituary Tips Obituaries can give you lots of great leads toward where to look for more information (did they list what towns these sisters were in?) however, obituaries are compiled and published when most family members are extremely upset and probably don't have all their information coherently listed. Heavens only knows which family member gave the information -- it could have been her husband who may not have been good with names, or one of her kids who wasn't close with his aunts, or even a grandchild chiming in when the adults were just too upset to notice. Death notices are often compiled by the funeral director by interviewing whichever family members came in to pick out a casket, and that's usually a pretty small group. Obituaries are usually written by a newspaper staff member who may or may not know town society, and it's usually based on just one or two interviews with surviving family members. Obituaries and death notices are only as good as the state of mind of the person interviewed. Maybe they were prepared. Maybe they were upset. One good thing about having a family with mostly daughters is that traditionally, weddings often occured where the bride's family lived, in her church, so there's a good chance if you can trace the family to the same community when the daughters were fairly young, you should be able to dig up a pile of civil and church records to sort through which bride went with which brother -- and some marriage certificates also include ages, so even if the brides -- or grooms -- chose to use middle or nicknames, you may be able to sort through them more easily. You might also be surprised to find second and third marriages for one or more of the sisters -- women just didn't stay unmarried long ago, especially if they had kids! One other suggestion for digging: Depending on how long-lived the sisters were, if they were around 70-80 when they passed on, you may be able to find coverage of their 50th wedding anniversaries in various church, community or social publications. At least this information will be compiled from a living sister's interview, so the information might be more credible -- unless the sister was actively bending the truth, which is always a possibility Blessings, George "DaPicMoocher" Jenkins Jenkins-Jeffries-Lee Family Page - http://www.geocities.com/geojenk Jenkins-Jeffries-Lee Family Picture Page - http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~geojenk/index.html

    1. [AFAM-JEFFRIES] Telephone Tip
    2. CHECKING TELEPHONE DIRECTORIES If you can't seem to track down uncommon surnames, try to locate them in the phone directories of the town, state, or country you're focusing on. This might seem like looking for a needle in a haystack, but it isn't as bad as you think. In fact, the phone directory for some countries, such as Ireland, is thinner than the phone directory for many American cities. A good resource for phone directories on the Internet is http://www.teldir.com/eng/namc/us/pn Once you locate a name and an address, resort to the old-fashioned method and write a letter explaining your genealogical search and what you're trying to accomplish. I once wrote to all the Simons in the Belleview, Illinois, and St. Louis areas (26 of them!) and received only one reply. However, that reply was from the granddaughter of my great-great grandfather, and she had resources that I didn't! Sometimes, that needle in a haystack pays off!

    1. [AFAM-JEFFRIES] Integrity of information
    2. Greetings, All of us, at one time or another has run into conflicting information during our research. Here are some things to think about during the evaluation process: Integrity of Information On every source you need to consider how it was created. Birth certificates were usually completed close to the event by hospital, doctors and/or parents and places and dates should be very accurate. Names should also be accurate, but there are errors sometimes. Marrage certificates are usually completed by the people involved and names, places and dates are usually accurate. Death certificates are usually completed by a relative that may not know all the facts and may not be in the best mental state of mind while providing information. Children may often be unsure of parents exact place of birth or other datails about their parents. Younger siblings may not know the exact place where an older sibling was born so errors do get on death certificates. Grave stones are often made months or years after the fact and sometimes the stone cutters make errors. Always consider when and how the record was created and who provided the information. Generally information provided at the time of the event by the people involved is most accurate. Records created after the fact or by uninvolved people are generally less accurate and the longer the time since the event the greater chance of error. Published information always has a chance of error in transcription, typing or interpertation. The web has allowed many more people to publish their family information and allowed more errors to be replicated by people that don't verify information they get from published sources. Documentation and verification with original records is the best way to insure your information is accurate. Always consider the sources and how the record was created in evaluating what information you should consider as fact.

    1. [AFAM-JEFFRIES] RE: Genealogy Tips for Afro-Americans
    2. AFRICAN-AMERICAN RESEARCH African-American genealogy is probably one of the most difficult areas to research. A valuable book that gives you clues on where to begin searching is "Finding a Place Called Home--Guide to African American Genealogy and Historical Identity." Written by Dee Parmer Woodtor, Ph.D., the paperback was published in November 1999. The ISBN number is 0-375-70843-X. If you can't find this treasure at the bookstore, check with the Library of Congress or a larger library for interlibrary loan information.
