Re: surname:Chavis
In Response To: Re: surname:Chavis ()

Hi Bobbie

Most of the marriages between the Chavis and Jeffers/Jefferies/Jeffries occured in Southern Mississippi in the Counties of Jefferson and Yazoo. Here is a list of some:

Hamilton H. Chavis married Elizabeth Jeffries Dec. 5, 1844 in Jefferson Co. Around 1859 they moved to Ashley Co., AR.

Preston Chavis married Laura Ann Jeffers Dec. 13, 1849 in Yazoo City.
Both Preston and "Annie" were listed as Mulattos in the 1880 census of Warren County. Both sets of their parents were listed as born in SC. Preston never moved from MS.

Alexander B. Chavis married Mary Jeffers approx. 1853. Not sure where in MS. Alexander moved to Ashley Co., AR around 1859.

Missouri Cason(Dau. of Jerrusha Chavis) married Osborne Jeffers. They moved to Ashley Co., AR. I am not sure which year. Missouri was listed as a Mulatto in the 1850 census of Jefferson Co.

Hamilton, Alexander, Preston and Jerrusha were children of Jordan Chavis. We believe Jordans wife was Eliza Jefferies but have not proven it yet.

Hope this helps. If you have any questions let me know.

Regards, Will
