I don't know if there is a connection, but I descend from one Allen William Jeter b. 1832 in Columbus Muscogee Ga., first married Mary Goldsmith, then married Susan Seale. These are my ggrandparents. They came to La. from Ga. during the Civil War. I understand they lost everything in Ga. so came to La., then to VanZandt Co., Tx. This is where all of Allen and Susan's children were born. My grandparents were Miles Peery Vaught m. Elnora E."Nora" Jeter. I have quite a lot of info on the family from Allen William down.
If I can be of help, please let me know. I would also be interested in your book when you get it put together.
