Alexander Sandy Jeffries and Robert Jeffries
I have a bit of information that may assist with a tiny bit of the research on the Sandy (Alexander Sandy Jeffries) and Robert Indian or Black Bob research.
A subscriber commented that contributed some information and that information might be made more clear with the following Census information.
The person making the comment was "Jeff/PA." and he was researching the Clarke, Strother, Jeffries lines.
It was in respect to Robert Jeffries . He stated that Alexander Sandy Jeffries was listed as the son of Moses and Molly/Polly Jeffries.And he was the father of Robert known as Indian Bob or Black Bob. He wants to know if Sandy was white or Mulatto. At lesat I think that was one of the questions.And was quoting multipl census locations for the son of Sandy Jeffries Called Robert or Bob.
I am the 3rd great granddaughter of Moses and Molly Jeffries. Here is what I do have that is likely a credible source (book published after that time by Fayette Jeffries) that stated that Moses and Molly's son Harrison Rector Jeffries was left a widower in 1837. He sent his children out to live with various relatives and neighbors until his remarriage. Josephus Algenon Sidney Jeffries known as Bob to his siblings was sent to live with his grandparents Moses and Molly Jeffries. He was born in 1836 in Rockinham Co. VA. According to a book by his brother Fayette Jeffries, Bob did not return to live with his father and step mother.
