Jeffris, Malcolm R. proprietor of Makida Farm of 360 acres in the town of Harrison, Lincoln County, was born in Janesville, Wis., Aug. 23, 1886, son of Malcolm H. and Nancy ROYS JEFFRIS. In his youth he attended the grade and high schools in his native city, and subsequently Brown University at Providence, R. I., from which he was graduated with the class of 1910. He was also a student for the following three years. In the fall of 1913 he came to Lincoln County, and purchased 360 acres of cut-over land in the town of Harrison, which he has since developed into his present farm, now recognized as one of the finest stock farms in northern Wisconsin, and which is provided with two complete sets of buildings. He has a fine herd of pure-bred Holstein cattle, all registered stock, together with a flock of Shropshire sheep and a herd of Berkshire swine. His equipment is thoroughly modern, including all necessary machinery, electric lights, running water, and other conveniences. Mr. JEFFRIS has served his town and county in various offices and is now chairman of the town board of Harrison and therefore a member of the county board. He was married Jan. 22, 1915, to Ida GREEN, daughter of M. F. and Ella GREEN, her father being president of the Green Tobacco Co. of Janesville. Mr. and Mrs. JEFFRIS are the parents of three children, Nancy, Helen and Roys.
