Portsmouth Times, Saturday, May 6, 1871 - Sudden Death of an Old Citizen - HENRY JEFFORDS, one of the oldest citizens of this county, died very suddenly, at his residence in Clay township, about noon on Saturday last. He had been in usual health, apparently, during the morning, visiting about in the neighborhood. About half-past 11 o'clock he complained of feeling ill and laid down. Grown worse, he was carried up stairs, but shortly afterward expired. His death is supposed to have resulted from paralysis. Mr. Jeffords was over eighty years of age, and during life had been a remarkable active man. He was born in Roxbury, Massachusetts, in 1790, and emigrated to this county at an early day. He was engaged in driving stagecoaches between this point and Chillicothe, about fifty years ago. Mr. Jeffords was a man of great hospitality, of remarkable energy, and greatly attached to the sports of the field and turf, in which he always displayed great enthusiasm. He was an honorable, kindhearted man, and possessed of many of the distinguishable traits of our early Western pioneers.
