Another deed, dated 1878, shows the continuing settlement of his parents estate even two years after Jeff's death. His brother John R. Booth and Mollie F. Wilson deed to Jefferson M R Booth 2/10 of dower estate of Millie Booth. the deed makes reference to a "lost deed" from 1865. 
A curious co-incidence, and to avoid confusion, it is necessary to mention there was more than one Jefferson Booth who lived in or near Lexington, Kentucky. The Jefferson Booth (race black) mentioned in the following newspaper article died about 10 years after the Jefferson Booth (race white) outlined in this profile. They were two different men.
