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.
