Spelling in researching this surname is hazardous due to a variety of reasons and you may miss something in searching by misspelled historical entries.............which may or may not be "misspelled" according to some of the persons using this surname in research. The line of Stephen shows on Jasper but has 11 children including males Thomas, Willis, Daniel and James. You might do a bit of research on the meaning of "Jasper" and also some possible other names which may have been or not been a substituted name for Jasper. Perhaps Jasper was a short name and used as the common name. Keep on the hunt! Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
