Find A Grave Memorial# 37154946
Mary Tiffany Bleeks was raised by Lewis Tiffany and Olive Oviatt Tiffany, but they weren't her parents. They were her uncle and aunt. Mary was the daughter of Recompense Tiffany Jr. and Julia Oviatt, who married in Allen Co., Indiana, on on 20 Oct 1841. Mary was on the 1850 census with her parents in Ohio:

1850 > OHIO > SUMMIT > TWINSBURG TWP Series: M432 Roll: 732 Page: 381
Recompense Tiffany 33 450 Ohio [sic]
Julia 30/31 Ohio
Mary 2 Ohio [sic]
Rosa 1 mo Ohio [sic, Rhoda]

Julia Oviatt Tiffany was declared insane in 1853 and her daughters were sent to relatives to be raised. Mary Tiffany went to Lewis and Olive. Anna Rhoda Collins Tiffany went to her uncle and aunt, George Tiffany and Laura Dunbar.

Mary's middle name wasn't "Loretta." Loretta on the Lewis Tiffany 1850 census was a census taker error. She actually was Lewis Tiffany's daughter Harriet.

I am aware the the 1930 obituary for George W. Bleeks said Mary was the daughter of Lewis and Olive, but that obituary was undoubtedly written by someone who had no knowledge beyond the fact that Mary was a Tiffany and raised by Lewis and Olive Tiffany.

Thanks for all the work.....
.... that you have done on Ethel Gee. Andrew Pedersen is my uncle, so she would be my aunt even tho she passed long before I was born. Ethel know a lot of heart ache in her short life. I was hoping I had a photo of Andrew and Ethel, but so far I haven't found one. I will keep looking.

Hi, my husband is Max's cousin through his "Hansen" line. But, since you seem to have most of the Memorials of that family, I am going to transfer Max's Memorial to you. Thanks, Rose.

Samuel Burwell photo
The information you have on Samuel Burwell is correct but the photo you show as his headstone is that of Henry Innis.

I believe Samuel and Nancy are buried at Riverside Cemetery. Might want to double check.

RE: Matthew Ferguson
Would you like to have Joseph & Laura Ferguson as well? I'm simply taking the photos to upgrade the cemeteries in Stafford County. Not related to anyone as far as I know. Ray

Louis Buchholz tombstone
Kitty, Found the site with this family stone-the pastor believes Louis is here but am getting in touch with someone that has been in the area longer to see if there is any more info. Caroline and Fredrich and an August Spohr are buried within the B stone square along with the family stone but no specific stone for Louis. Will keep in touch when I know more. Jacky

RE: Joseph Lofland
Hi Kitty,

You're quite welcome. I think there are two Joseph Lofland's buried in this cemetery, though, so I left the pictures up for "J. L." There is another Joseph Lofland, possibly the father of J. L., who served in the War of 1812.

I just found this information in the History of Guernsey County referring to the elder Lofland:

"The soldiers buried in the old graveyard, as near as we can now remem-
ber, are : Of the Revolutionary war, Capt. Thomas Cook, Capt. James Jack,
Thomas Lawrence, John Linn, Robert Moffett, Christopher Donover, Sr.,
and Robert Chambers; of the war of 1812, Maj. James Dunlap, Capt. James
Harding, Capt. Cyrus P. Beatty, Lieut. Wyatt Hutchison, Lieut. David Burt,
Privates John Hutchison, James Turner, Andrew McConehay, Andrew Mar-
shall, James Kelley, Joseph Lofland, William Talbott, Rodney Talbott, Peter
Stears, Peter Torode, John Bollen, John McKee, James Thomas and Christo-
pher Donover, Jr., and of the Mexican war-, John Clark.

Joseph Lofland was a soldier in the regiment of Col. Jonathan Meigs and
was with the army of the Northwest when it was surrendered to the British at
Detroit by Gen. Joseph Hull.

Sorry for the confusion.

Thank you so much for the information on Mary's parents. I added them to her site.
