My Jeffers was Levi Richard Jeffers b.1835 in SC.Married to Elizabeth Belton b.1836 in SC. Deaths of both are unknown. Burial is in SC. They had 7 children: Elizabeth b. 1860; John Boyd b.1861(my grandfather); Coleman b.1864; Benjamin b 1866; Mattie b1870; Samuel b 1875; and Robert b 1862. I don't have any more info on Levi or Elizabeth. I think there is a connection to the Boyd's and the Hollis' as I have some letters and documents written and/or signed by Boyd's and Hollis'. Does any of this help? On my gfathers side (John boyd) he married Julia Cornelia Melton d. of Levi and Sally M. They moved their family to Mt.Airy NC and the spelling eventually was changed to Jeffries.
