The Jeffery Family Tree was the subject of four typewritten pages prepared by Clarice Ames. Clarice was the daughter of Alta Cathern Lacey and Eulice Ray Jeffery.  Her father, Eulice, was Marion Erbland's (nee Brown) uncle. Clarice died on 1990-09-23. It is believed that the documents were prepared c 1960s. Photocopies of four pages were in the possession of Marion A. Erbland (nee Brown) and a transcription, (in Acrobat pdf format) of these four pages is available by clicking here.  The layout of the pdf document mimics the appearance of the original typewritten document.

Indenture of Apprenticeship for Stephen Jeffery dated 14th May 1846. This made Stephen Jeffrey an Apprentice Blacksmith to Richard Harrison of Wateringbury in the county of Kent, England and includes the signature of his father, Stephen Jeffrey the elder, agreeing to the terms of the Apprenticeship. This is a scan of an old photocopy, so the quality is not the best. A transcription in Adobe Acrobat format is available in order to make the reading easier. The numbers in brackets [2] within the transcription indicate illegible words and the number of such words at that location.  The file (406KB) has been laid out to mimic the appearance of the source document. Stephen Jeffery is enumerated with Richard Harrison in the 1851 census.  Just before Stephen died in Sunnyside, Washington in 1904, he gave to his son, Eulice, many important papers.  It is believed that this photocopy came from a photocopy of those papers that Eulice gave to his niece, Marion Erbland (nee Brown).  Marion always called him "Uncle Eulie".
