He toured with his family throughout the United States and the world. Jefferson lived in Mobile during his teenage years, and his father in fact died here in 1842 during the yellow fever epidemic. The senior Jefferson is buried in the Magnolia Cemetary on Virginia Street. Joe Jefferson was famous for his recurring role as Rip Van Winkle.
