My wifeâs maiden name is Tiffany. We have a Xerox copy of the book âTiffanyâs of America. History and Genealogy. Published by Nelson Otis Tiffany for and in the interest of Charles Lewis Tiffany of New York City, and of the Tiffany family.â This book was published in 1903. I have copied every page of this book into a WORD document and am attempting to update as many of the numerous lines to the present time as possible. Would you be interested in contributing to my undertaking? If you would, please send me only full names and dates of birth, death and marriage from yourself back at least three or four generations. Hopefully that will lead to someone in the book. I am NOT soliciting any money for my project. Iâm doing this as a hobby.
My wifeâs lineage goes back to THOMAS TIFFANY who married Meletiah Tingley (daughter of Captain Timothy Tingley and Martha Day). Thomas was born on 31 May, 1756 and died on 12 May, 1835. He married in Attleboro, Massachusetts on 10 June, 1779 Meletiah Tingley. She was born in Attleboro, Massachusetts on 5 October, 1762 and died in Hartford, Pennsylvania on 7 May, 1835.
In the book it states, âIn 1794, Squire Thomas Tiffany went from Attleboro, Massachusetts, with his wife and seven children, to what is now Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania, where he was with the famous âNine Partners.â He built for himself and family a home on a hill overlooking the site of the historical âNine Partnersâ spring, around which his descendants and those of his brother-in-law, Elkanah Tingley, annually gather. The home is owned by his family, and is occupied by his grandchildren. In 1799, he was commissioned justice of the peace, resigning the office in 1808, when his brother Hosea was appointed in his place. In 1893 there were five Tiffanys in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania holding the commission of justice of the peace from the governor of the commonwealth.â
