Biography:

Ira S. Jeffers (1843-1932) was a furniture dealer, barber, and the publisher of the Palo Post in Palo (Ionia County, Michigan). During the Civil War, he probably served in an unidentified New York (State) unit. Ira married Dophrona Jeffers. He was the son of Leverett Jeffers who died at age 76.

Issues of the Palo Post, September 7, 1900-May 24, 1901, are available in the Clarke Historical Library. The Palo Post was continued by the Palo Weekly Post, which was owned and operated by another man. (This information is from the collection.)
