Today, lets have some fun and exchange information on
immigrant ancestors in the Jeff* families.
Ill go first; my immigrant JEFFERIS ancestor was

in Pennsylvania Quaker sources.

ancestors and post information about your immigrant
ancestors also tell me where I might search for
details on the immigration of Robert Jefferis and Jane
