Tiffany-Best Family Bible On EBAY

If you are researching the Tiffany or Best families in New York state, you might want to take a close look at this family bible that has come up for auction on eBay. The bible itself is in fairly good condition according to the seller and has quite a bit of family information.

The genealogical information starts with the marriage of Charles David Tiffany to Ada Best June 5, 1878. Other entries show Ada's parents as Henry Best and Catherine Maria Smith.

I took a look online and Henry Edgar Best (son of Robert) married Catherine Maria Smith Oct. 15, 1856. Ada's siblings are given as: Carry (b Sept. 6, 1859; m. Byaly Miller); Jessie, (b. March 30, 1862; d. May 10, 1863); Anna Maria, (b. Aug. 26, 1864; m. Jonas A. Rossman); Janette, (b. Mch. 5, 1867; m. Nov. 2, 1887, James I. Leggett; d. Oct. 19, 1888. No issue); Lulu, (b. Oct. 30, 1874; m. James H. Miller); Eugenia, (b. Nov. 13, 1877 ; m. Edgar S. Bradley); and Catherine E., (b. Apr. 17, 1879; d. Mch. 16, 1881).

Ada was born July 12, 1857 and married Charles D. Tiffany (he was born June 3, 1856). Their children:

Claude, b. March 5, 1879
Gordon, b. Mch. 10, 1881; d. July 8, 1899
Lila Erroll, b. Sept. 1, 1884
Mary Irene, b. Sept. 9, 1889
Rossman, b. July 29, 1895
Harold, b. Oct. 6, 1900

Henry Edgar Best's father, Robert Best was born Jan. 1, 1799; d. Dec. 3, 1890; married Anna Maria Hallenbeck.
