Looking for any information on the family of Yelmer and Mabel Tiffany Simms and their two children Edward P. born in 1923 and Marjorie born in 1927. Yelmer may have been the County Treasurer for Rusk Co. in 1930. I am a related to this family through the Tiffany side. Mabel Tiffany was the daughter of Edward Tiffany photographer in Ladysmith and granddauther of Comfort Tiffany of Richford,Waushara Co. WI.

I have no idea why I didn't look at John's death record. I located the names I wanted in the index, made a page in my notebook for them and for whatever reason skipped over his. Perhaps if you call the courthouse one of the ladies would be kind enough to read it to you.

Also, I can't remember if I looked for death records for Marjorie and Kurt. I know I thought to but I have no notes other than the marriage record.

My apologies for this missing information.

Yes it would seem we are cousins of some sort, 3rd I think. Your father was the son of Yelmer and Mabel. Mabel was the daughter of Edward and Edward was the son of Comfort Tiffany and brother to my Great grandmother, Helen M. Tiffany. I have the Shaw (Helen married Alvin Briggs Shaw),Horton, Tiffany and Lilly (Comfort married Hannah Lillie or Lilly on Ancestory dot com. It has all the ancestors, but no information on your side of the family. I would love that information too. If you have any trouble finding the tree, email me at Sadi01@AOL.com. Please tell me where you live. We were located at a campground not far from Richford for every summer from 2001-2009. Now I am in Minnesota not far fro another cousin of the Tiffany line, Helen's sister Annette.
