Must have been some kind of tie to being buried in Snow Hill. There are quite a few Jeffcoats buried there, maybe some of Margaret's family??? Son Robert is buried there. I don't see entry for J.B. Take a look at headstone for Margaret, could his information be on another side of that four sided stone????

Happy Hunting (^_^)
