    His sons, Charles, Rufus & Adolph were evidently rowdy characters. Rev. Ben Meeks related that when he began preaching at Shiloh Baptist Church in Rover about 1925-30, these Jolliff boys would try to disrupt the services. They would ride up to the church and stay outside until the preaching started. Then they would tromp in with their boots and spurs making so much noise that Bro. Meeks would have to stop and wait until they were seated. About when the message got a little tense, they would get up and shuffle out. Outside they would wait until the service was over, then they would ride through the crowd shooting their guns.
