Jeffery, John Nelson

John Nelson Jeffery

Free Will Baptist Cemetery, Marker #19


John Nelson Jeffery was born about 1834 in Tusket in what was then Shelburne County and died 10 Dec 1902 at the age of 68, possibly in Port Maitland as we know he lived there when some of his children were born. John married Eunice Frost in Beaver River 5 March 1858 or 1859. They had 7 known children. John is probably a brother of Robert who is buried in the Free Will Baptist Cemetery and a brother of Aaron who is buried in the Calvinist Baptist Cemetery. Eunice was born about 1837 and died nine years before John on 12 Aug 1893 at the age of 44. John is buried near Eunice and is named on the same grave marker. In the 1881 Census Eunice and John said they were Free Baptist. It is likely they attended the church on the grounds of the cemetery where they are buried.
