Slaves in My Jeffries Family

1. James (Jim) Jeffries    {married}    Hattie Jeffries
– Both these parents resided at the Frank Jeffries Plantation near Louisburg, North Carolina, in Franklin County. Jim was a Stable master, and Hattie was a house servant and weaver.

Their child: 2. Ida Adkins (b. about 1855)

It is unknown at this time whether Ida Adkins ever married or had any children. It seems plausible that she did marry after the war, as her surname is “Adkins” and not “Jeffries”. If anyone has any information in regards to this person or her descendants, please contact me.

Source information:
1. Former slave narrative of Ida Adkins that was recorded as part of the Works Progress Administration, Writers Project, June 1, 1937 by Travis Jordan. Available here: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/22976/22976-h/22976-h.htm
