There were some Jefts in Mason, NH (Hillsborough Co). Orson H Jefts b 20 Jul 1833 in Mason and d 1903 in MN and buried in Santa Clara Co., CA. Various census records lead me to believe his brother is Daniel E Jefts b. 1836. Daniel's mother was, I believe, Asenath (1870 Census in VT). I have no clue as to their father as yet. And I believe they had a sister Elizabeth b Feb 1830 who married Cyrus A Smith (my gg grandfather). Finally, 1870 Census from Northfield MN indicates another brother Gorden (sp?) who may be the JG Jefts that lived later in Minneapolis.
