Jefferson Davis Descendants

It is rare to encounter a descendant of Jefferson Davis, as he left only four grandchildren, born in the late 1800s. If your parent or grandparent is not on the chart below, you are NOT a descendant of President Jefferson DAVIS, Confederate States of America! It is that simple, as he left few descendants.

All of Jefferson Davis's grandchildren were raised and married in Colorado Springs, Colorado and died less than one hundred years ago, in the twentieth century. If you are an adult descendant of Jefferson Davis, it is quite easy to trace your lineage back to one of his four grandchildren, or his twelve great grandchildren, as that person would be your parent or grandparent.

Joel Addison HAYES Memorial at Find A Grave covers Margaret, the daughter of Jefferson Davis, her husband, children and grandchildren and there is not one with a South Carolina connection. In fact ALL their children and grandchildren were born and died in Colorado, except one who died in California. How Representative Jenny Horne can trace her South Carolinian roots to these Coloradans is quite a mystery.
