My great grandfather was John Jefferson. He died in Kansas City, Kansas where he had lived for over 40 years.
He was born on April 26, 1875 in Lexington County, Mississippi. His frist wife was Grace Ragland (my great-grandmother)
and his second wife was Aletha Jefferson (whom he was married to at the time of his death).
Great grand-father Jefferson died on March 13, 1967 in Kansas City.
John Jefferson's mother and father were Elizabeth and Thomas Jefferson.
John's brothers were: Samuel Jefferson and Thomas Walter Jefferson.
I do not know of any sisters at this time.
They were from Mississippi and they are African American.
