Hello there. I've been doing a bit of research on my family's history(mom's side in particular), and I dug up some roots going all the way back to Wisconsin, and my great-great-grandfather George. However, though, I'm having a hard time locating any major concrete info on HIS father, William.
This is what I've got so far:
George Franklin Tift was born in LaGrange in Monroe County sometime in 1861(March?) and married one Jennie Bell Oliver, another Wisconsinite(and a Monroe County native) in 1889, and had 5 children, my great-grandfather Roy Tift being one of them.
However though, I have little on William Tift, other than a couple of Census records(including a 1930 record I just rediscovered, today) and one marriage record:
(Adding to my confusion here is that George indicated that his mother, Harriet was born in France in 1900, but then Canada in 1930.....on top of this, he indicates that William is from French Canada in 1900, but then the United States in 1930.....strange, really.)
If anybody's got any helpful information, even if it's just a family tree, or something, I'd be thankful. =)
