Louis Comfort Tiffany – sheds some shade….

 

LouisComfortTiffany

Louis Comfort Tiffany is reported to be my 5th cousin, 4 times removed, through our MRCA, Elizabeth Baker (1645-1708), the grandmother of Dinah Harris (1702-1796), my 6 times great grandmother and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.  From Grandmother Baker, Louis’ lineage is a straight line down the Tiffany males.  The oddity is that Grandmother Baker’s children have different last names:  Tiffany and King.   This is an item for the TO DO List!

The above was report # 412.   Months ago, We’re Related also informed me in report # 179, that Louis and I were 7th cousins, 4 times removed, through our MRCA, Thomas Clarke (1570-1627), the 4 times great grandfather of Mary Summers (1773-1860), my 4 times great grandmother and the furthest documented ancestor I have in that lineage.  It is a bit off putting that in the midst of the lineage I have not documented there appears an entry of PRIVATE (xxxx-xxxx) who would have to have lived in the 1600s.  Really?  Private?  For Louis, this report climbs his mother’s lineage.

So, I may investigate # 412, and really dim out # 179.
