My grandfather was George Edward Jefts born 6-14-1926 and died 12-24-1991. I am looking for brothers and sisters and info about his parents and Indian heritage. I think that he was born in Mass. but his family came from Vermont. Any help would be great.

George Edward Jefts was the son of George Edward Jefts(1895-1970) and Mary Ellen McIver(1896-1935). His siblings were Doris Mary (1918), Benjamin Allen (1921=died at 2 months of spinal meningitis), and Bernice Irene (1922). They were all born in Ware, MA.
George's grandparents were Albert Theodore(1860-1925) and Harriet Electa Moulton (1868-1912) Jefts.
Albert and Harriets children were Ira Albert, Ray Henry, Bessie Hattie, George Edward, and Etta (my grandmother). They were all born in Andover and Grafton, VT.
I have more information on these people and can go back another generation too. E-mail me if you want more.

I am not sure of the info. All that I do know is that my grandfather has a sister(Bunny) who is still alive. I also know that his mother either died or they divorced and he was raised by his father and stepmother.If this is correct from your info please let me know. George E. Jefts( grandfather) had 2 sons, Alan and Paul, and he was Scottish and American Indian. Thank you.

My typing came out a little confusing. Children of Albert Theodore and Harriet Electa are Ira Albert,Ray Henry, Bessie Hattie, George Edward, and Etta.

If theres anything else you don't understand let me know.

I do have a question, are you sure that Jefts isn't Indian(American).I was alsways told that Jefts was an Indian tribe name and that his(George) mother was Scottish. My mom was told that I was Creed Indian from the tribe in Vermont. If this isn't true then what nationality are we. If you need any info about my family I'll be glad to help. Another thing of interest, my mom use to take care of Mildred Jefts in a nursing home. I have a personal question to ask you if you could please e-mail personally at thanks. Melissa

Hi! All of the Jefts families in America descended from Henry Jeffs. He was born in England in 1606. He came to America, arriving in Boston in 1634 or 1635. He lived in Woburn, Ma. and then was one of the first settlers in 1654 in Billerica. If you want any more info. on Henry let me know! Debbie Jefts Rollins
