This is one of my family names that come out of Georgia. My paternal great-grandmother, Maude Virginia Jeffers was born in Georgia, June 30, 1885. Her parents were Joseph W. Jeffers and Lilla R. Boone. Joseph W Jeffers was the son of John Eugene Jeffers. All can be found in census records in Irwin , Bibb and Wilcox counties Georgia.
John Eugene Jeffers was a confederate veteran, and is buried in Rose Hill cemetery in Bibb county Georgia.
There is a lot more interesting information on the Jeffers name I will continue to research. A marriage to French Aristocracy……
