William J. JEFFERSON b. 1850?, Iowa to Montana

I am searching diligently for records of my ancestor
William J. JEFFERSON. What an enigma! The 1870
census in Montana and his death certificate list
his birthplace as Iowa around 1850 but I still
have no clue as to his parents' names or where
specifically he was born. The names Ralph and
William show up frequently in his descendants.
He was in Marysville, Lewis Clark Co., Montana
as a quartz miner by 1870. Further complicating
things he died in Utah during a blizzard while
passing through on his way to Ely, NV.

Help! Anyone with any ideas I would really
appreciate your input.
