My great Grandmother, Stella Jeffers, was born in Chariton co. Missouri October 14th 1870. Her father was Abraham Jeffers and her mother was Louisa Terrell or Taylor. Louisa died shortly after the birth of the second daughter, Dora, Jan. 10, 1871. The family legend was that the father moved on to Barber county Kansas and left the two young girls with the Taylor family in Missouri until he was able to complete a home for them in Kansas. My grandfather's middle name was Taylor, and he thought that the mother (Louisa) was a Terrill born in Kentucky. Abraham Jeffers was born March 9, 1832 in West Virginia. He died in the home of his daughter, Dora, Feb 23, 1899 at Alene, Ok.
I would appreciate any information on any of these family names.
