Silas Jeffrey came to America as a young man. He answered an ad for an experienced mechanic which brought him to the Salt Mill owned by the Graham brothers. Silas Jeffrey soon became interested in the cattle business and with no previous experience was successful. As the open range closed in 1890, he bought thousands of acres of land near the Olney area. His ranch was called Ingleside.

The discovery of oil made his property the richest oil lands in the county. The ranch had Hereford cattle, large silos, corrals and the big white house.

Funeral services for S.R. Jeffery, 77, prominent Young County ranch and cattleman, whose death occurred in Olney on Wednesday, were held at the First Baptist Church in Graham Thursday afternoon with Rev. Townsend, pastor of the Olney Baptist Church officiating.

Mr. Jeffery came from England and settled in Graham in 1871 whee he made his home until a few years ago when he moved to his Ingleside ranch north of Graham and later to Olney. Besides his wife, he is survived by four children - Ridley Jeffery and Mrs. Wright McClatchy of Olney, Ed Jeffery of Wichita Falls and Silas Jeffery of Austin.
