from the Janesville Daily Gazette:

Mr. Jeffris was 46 year old the 27th day of last September and during his life his residence has been divided between his birthplace, Janesville, and his later home in Huron, South Dakota.

He settled in Huron in the pioneer days of that city and carried on there for a number of years in a flourishing business in groceries and lumber; until within three years ago in partnership with his cousin David Jeffris. Mr. Jeffris had been closely associated with the growth of Huron, a charter member of its Congregational church and deeply interested in the development of the city as well as the whole state, along financial, educational and religious lines.

Even after settling in South Dakota he had been a frequent visitor in Janesville and at time he and his family have made prolonged stays here near his old home.

Mr. Jeffris came back to Janesville last July in very poor health, and in spite of all possible care and attendance, and his own brave spirit, by the help of which he was for a time to be up and out of doors, his illness slowly exhausted him. He was a thoughtful man of sterling, conscientious integrity, quiet humor and unostentatious generosity and as business man, friend, citizen and man he rendered many substantial and true services to the world in which he moved.
