Biographical data
Name: Jefferson, Bradford B.  
   Also known as: B.B. Jefferson, Sr.
Born: 8 July 1874
Died: 14 May 1963
 
Notes:
Gaige in Chess Personalia has 'Jefferson [Sr.], B[radford] B.' so presumably the first name is uncertain. There was also a Jefferson, who was champion of Tennesee in 1884 (according to the History of the Mechanics Institute Chess Room web site), but that could not have been the same person, because B.B. Jefferson was only born in 1874.
