J. K. Jeffrey

John K. Jeffrey served as Laramie County Clerk. He was involved in the Board of Trade from its beginnings and became Secretary of the organization. Mr. Jeffrey was also chosen to serve in the Constitutional Convention. He was one of the organizers of the statehood celebration and was quoted as saying: “Do not forget that it is honor of the state and that it is an honor to participate in the ceremonies of the day. Statehood is an event of a lifetime and as such let us make of it an occasion worthy of Wyoming.”

(Wyoming Commonwealth July 20, 1890, p. 8)
