I am seeking my family. My grandfather was Dave Jefferson and it is said that he had a sister named Rosie. My entire immediate family is from Mississipi but we were told that Dave was from Louisiana. He was a U.S. Veteran.

Janie,
I am from a line of Jefferson's who are from Mississippi.
What part of Mississippi is your Jefferson's from?
My family was from Itta Bena, MS and Lexington, MS. area.
My grandfather was Ralph Jefferson (aka: R.A. Jefferson).
My great-grandfather was John Jefferson and
my great-great-grandfather was Thomas Jefferson. If you think
there is a connection please e-mail me at: brook425@execpc.com

Casandra,
The only thing I know about my Jefferson family is that my grandfather's name was Dave Jefferson and he had a sister named Rosir Lee Jefferson. We are from Natchez but I think my grandfather was originally from Louisianal.

Hmmm...The Dave Jefferson that I'm related to is actually Harrison Jefferson Jr...Dave was his stage name...he played the drums for people like BB King, Albert King, Johnny Taylor...and a lot of other blues entertainers from Chicago to Ms... Itta Bena is right there next to Greenville...if we can tie Charlie Jefferson to John or Ralph...then we're related.

Also, there's a Branch of Jeffersons in the area(Colored Colony right outside of Greenville) that's mentioned in the book 'Once Upon A Time When We Were Colored'.....I've been trying to find out if they're connected to our tree...

That's sound interesting,because my relatives lived in bolivar county before they moved to Greenville. My granddad name was Eddie Jefferson and he was born in bolivar county. My great granddad was name Richard jefferson and his dad was name Richard also. My great grandad had 6 sisters and two brothers including himself. Which is Charles jefferson. They called my granddad buck. This mother name was lula jefferson. I had a great uncle name Dave jefferson. His nick name was uncle hoodie.
