Jeffcoat Reunion

July 29 @ 8:00 am - July 31 @ 5:00 pm

It is a weekend brimming in America patriotism at the colonial settlement place of our ancestor, Jacob Jeffcoat. Each year we gather as family to celebrate our 250- year plus American history. Family, faith, fun, food and Love are abundant across this 3-day weekend when cousins from far away are welcomed and celebrated by their cousins of the 1767 Jeffcoat settlement-enclave at the ancient heart of South Carolina, near Columbia, S.C. Ours is a very special and unique history. Children often arrive uninterested but leave inspired when they learn the Jeffcoat family’s intimate ties to Martha & George Washington (the “Mt. Vernon House” of Mary S. Martin still stands on the crest of the Sodian Hills), Benjamin Franklin, Queen Charlotte and King George III and others who were just ordinary people of their time trying to form a more perfect union in these new ands of America. The 1769 Jeffcoat Parsonage-House was strategic place in a mission that Jacob Jeffcoat invested in at England while on the lands of Selina Shirley Hastings, his greatest benefactor. She was also the benefactor of Bishop Francis Asbury.

Jacob Jeffcoat came as part of a plan tied to James Oglethorpe in 1735-36. The Jeffcoat family’s history as deep roots directly to these initial meeting with Oglethorpe and others including the leader of the Yamacraw and Creek nations. Our beloved cousin “Indian Mary the Methodist, Mary Musgrove, was directly tied to Jacob Jeffcoat…. Do not miss the 2022 reunion because you will miss much. SEE YOU THERE!!!
