Jefferson Allen "Jeff" Palmer
Birth: Jul. 2, 1883
Mills County
Texas, USA
Death: Nov. 8, 1960

Fifth of 11 children born to J. A. Quitman Palmer and Elizabeth Belle Barr.

Called "Brother" by his siblings.

Maternal grandparents: Allen E. Barr b. August 28, 1811 and Jane Palace Campbell b. May 3, 1820.

Paternal grandparents: John Houston Palmer b. March 28, 1816 and Eliza Jane Terry b. December 22, 1821.

Was married twice (Margaret and Margie); no children.

Mrs. Lewis Trotter of Omega, New Mexico paid tribute to Jeff in a letter to the editor of a local newspaper:

"Saturday, November 12, in T or C final tribute was paid to one of our country's great Old Timers, Jeff Palmer.

"He will long be remembered as a cowboy, ranch manager and friend to many. Being a gentleman of the old school, he believed a man's word was his honor and that all men were as honest as he. This at times proved to be a costly belief. Never was he known to be bitter toward those who were not so good as he.

"After retiring to his small ranch near Omego he continued to work for others. More often than not he found things to do for his neighbor without being asked. Often he didn't even receive thanks as his good deeds were unknown.

"Many are the people who are saddened at his passing. Another great old man of the Old West, Jeff Palmer."
