JOHN THOMAS JEFFRESS

JOHN THOMAS JEFFRESS, a citizen of Oakland, was born in London, England, in 1824, and went to Australia in his boyhood, and there learned the art of sugar-refining, which has since been his chief vocation. He came to California in 1848 and engagedin mining in Tuolumne county for about two years, with fair success. In 1850-‘51 he returned East and brought out his family - a wife and two children. He had married, at the age of twenty-two years, in 1846, Elizabeth Kennedy, a native of Glasgow, Scotland, and a resident of Australia from the age of twelve years. Her parents were Thomas Howard and Elizabeth Kennedy. Her grandfather Kennedy died at the age of eighty-eight years, at Riverside farm, near Healdsburg, and her grandmother Kennedy, died aged sixty-eight, at Sullivan’s creek. The grandparents Jeffress both lived to an advanced age, dying in Australia. The great-grandfather Jeffress reached the wonderful age of 105 years, dying in London, after recovering his sight.

After his return to this State Mr. Jeffress conducted the United States Hotel at Sonora until he was burned out the next year, 1852; then he began gravel-mining at Sullivan’s creek, in that county. Coming next to San Francisco, he engaged first in the manufacture of gas. He aided in building the San Francisco Gas Works, made the first gas and lighted the first lamp. Next he went to farming in Marin county, where he owned 160 acres of land, but in a short time he accepted the position of superintendent of the George Gordon Sugar Refinery, which he retained for ten years. He then built a sugar refinery at the Sandwich Islands. Returning, he became superintendent of the California Silver Works at Clear Lake, and continued in that relation until 1883, when he took up his permanent home. His children are:

Mary Elizabeth, born in Australia and married, in San Francisco, Nelson C. Gould, of that city, then a boot and shoe merchant.

Thomas William, born February 14, 1849, brought up here from two years of age, had some schooling in San Francisco to the age of twelve, then was employed in a stove and hardware store in Sacramento two or three years, then, on account of failing health from malaria, returned home, his parents then residing at Clear Lake. In 1869 he began work in the same line in San Francisco, and was traveling salesman for fifteen years. He was married in that city in 1872, to Annie Kirk, who was born in England and reared in California from the age of about fifteen years, her mother dying when she was but three years old. Her father, born in Scotland in 1822, is still living. He came to live in Oakland about 1879, and is still traveling, engaged inmercantile business. Since 1884 he has been bookkeeper-in Pasadena in 1887-returning here in 1888. In April, 1889, he entered the real-estate business, as a member of the firm of Jeffress & White (James E.). He has three children: William Henry, born in September, 1873; John Thomas, in 1875, and Annie Eugenie, in 1878. Mr. Thomas W. Jeffress is a member of Orion Lodge, No. 189, I. O. O. F., and of Pacific Lodge, No. 7, A. O. U. W.

Agnes Wylie, born and married in San Francisco, her husband being Fred Clifford, a foreman in the car department of the Southern Pacific railroad.

James Vigilance, born in San Francisco during the reign of the famous "Vigilance Committee," June 5, 1856, brought up to the dry-goods business from 1871 to 1890, in that city; married, in July 1881, in Healdsburg, Lulu Geunda Paget, who was born in San Francisco, January 21, 1861, a daughter of George W. And Jane (Heron) Paget, both natives of Cincinnati, Ohio. Her father died past middle life, and her mother is still living, aged about fifty years. They have one child, Melvin Garfield, born August 1, 1882. Mr. James V. Jeffress helped to organize the first parlor, California, No. 1, N. S. G. W.

John Kennedy Jeffress was born in Michigan, and is now with W. W. Montague & Company, in San Francisco, dealers in stoves, tinware, etc., since about 1878 - the same establishment where his brother Thomas had been employed. He married Susie H. Paget, a sister of his brother’s wife, and he has two children - Mabel and an infant son. Mr Jeffress has passed all the chairs of Oakland Parlor, N. S. G. W., and is now Past President.

George Henry, born in San Francisco, is a merchant in stoves and tinware in Oakland, a member of the firm of Jeffress, Mitchell & Company.

Walter Ferdinand, salesman for the last named company.

Alexander Mitchell, with W. W. Montague & Company. He is Past President of Oakland Parlor, N. S. G. W.

Egbert Judson, clerk for Jeffress, Mitchell & Company.
