Are you aware of any reports that credit Jeffries with a throw on Roeber during their touring?
Unfortunately, I don't have any Roeber-Jeffries newspaper accounts. If the matches were genuine rather than purely for exhibition, it would definitely be impressive to read.
If we could locate Roeber/Jeffries, it would be the earliest wrestling film in existence.
