Eli Jeffries bought Mildred Timbers from Alexander Jeffries' estate in 1844. There were other slaves sold at the same time. My theory is that Rachel, the oldest slave and sold to Moses Jeffries, is their mother.
Does anyone have information about the slaves? Many slaves owners listed their slaves in the family Bible. Is there a Jeffries' family Bible?
