Jefferson as a given name[edit]

These don't belong on a nav page for use finding people likely to be looked up by simply "Jefferson". If you think there's a place where they will be encyclopedic, put them there.

Possible redirect?[edit]

Maybe "Jefferson" should lead directly to Thomas Jefferson? It has to be the most popular search for just plain "Jefferson". The Thomas Jefferson page could have a See also link to this disambiguation page... Any ideas? mathwhiz29 03:14, 31 March 2008 (UTC) he chocked on pancakes —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.84.242.164 (talk) 02:59, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

That's why we have WP:PRIMARYTOPIC. A DAB is the right answer over a redirect. Toddst1 (talk) 23:28, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
Redirects are the right answer when there's a primary topic for a title but the topic has an even better title. See Obama, Patton, Reagan, Shakespeare, etc. -- JHunterJ (talk) 13:32, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

Mountain state?[edit]

Should there be an entry to Jefferson (Mountain state)? I think there should be. The other state articles point to both the other state articles. So I think this article should point to all three. --Joe (talk) 14:16, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

SEE ALSO (???)[edit]

The Jefferson River was one of the very first things in the country named after the President... WHILE he was president. It was named for him by Lewis and Clark during their expedition from St. Louis to the Pacific Coast. This river is a place but it's shuffled to the bottom like an afterthought. Ridiculous. Encyclopedic knowledge is thorough but is also ranked hierarchically -- both as a network (great case in point are the linked pages at Wiki) but also within each single page/article, whether as text (book) or online. And so, the most relevant or noteworthy or useful or important things should be close to the top (or center; wherever the focus is) as possible.
