Nov. 15, 1862 Hallettsville Lavaca County Texas, USA
Jefferson II was son of Jefferson I and lst wife Martha Smothers. He's listed up to 1800 census then disappears, more research. Jefferson I has 6 plots in his cemetery and if Jeff II died after 1800 am sure that is where he would be buried so for now that is where he is.

Per descendant of this family a document was found in the Lavaca Co courthouse where Jefferson II signed as Jefferson A which would imply his dad was Jefferson A or I. We believe he used A as his grandson used Jefferson B Sr and his son used Jefferson B Jr.
