Hi. My name is Dee. My g-g-g-Grandfather was Henry Harvey Jeffares. He was born in Wexford, Ireland in 1786 and died in Georgia in 1863. He was smuggled out of Ireland with his brother Robert at the age of 12 during the Irish Rebellion. They were nailed in crates with hole drilled in them for air. After arriving in America his brother died. He was raised in the Fairfield, SC area. He moved to Georgia 1830 - 1840. He was a teacher in Nancy Creek and a recorder at the Nancy Creek Primitive Baptist Church for more than 20 years. Nancy Creek is still operating today. He is buried there. Hope that helps a little. I learned a lot of history be Googling him. There is a lot of info about the Jeffares on the net. Let me know if I can help anymore. Have other info about Jeffares.
