Dear List, I have lost a family of Jeffryes who had a farm we believe in
Monona Co, but some were born In Woodbury,Lucky Valley in 1883. If someone
has a copy of the 1900 census or the Index or even a History Book of that
era. Could they please see if a Jeffryes (spelt that way is listed) Names
are William Thomas married a Lucy Woods in 1877 they moved to that area and
must have had many children before Elsie Elizabeth in 1883, Ethel Lillian
in 1888 and Leon J in 1890. There is another brother Robert E who lived in
Ida and Woodbury Co, so they could have lived nearby. Any help would be
grateful. Is there a rootsweb page for Woodbury? Thanks.
