His obituary in 1941 Mulberry Gap Minutes :Brother Jeff Price age 79 years,died Feb 1938. He professed faith in Christ in early life, and was in the organization
of Friendship Baptist church in 1879, where he remained a faithful member untildeath. He was married to Dorcus Brewer, and to this union were born ten chiildren, four boys and six daughters and in addition to the family, many
friends mourn his loss, but their loss is his eternal gain." H. J. Wilder

"After Jeff and Dorcas were married they moved on
the Shanks place on War Creek in Hancock County, TN, this place was owned by Tom Green. About seven years later Jeff bought a farm on Little War Creek near Friendship in Hawkins County. Early in 1903, with the help of Harvie Gonce [my note, Harvy Gonce was a cousin on the Davis side], he built a new house making the shingles from chestnut oak with a fro and using yellow poplar on the rest
of the house. About the farthest Jeff traveled from home was to Morristown in 1922 to see his first train. He had heard them echo through the mountains and was amazed that he could go there and be home before sundown in a model T Ford. Dorcas made a trip to Illinois around 1923 to visit some of her children who lived at Armington. She shelled out 25 pounds of black walnuts to pay her train fare." written by grandson Ross Holton Price.

This small cemetery on Jeff's old farm, is actually in Hancock County and was very difficult to find high on top of a hill.
