I'm just beginning my search on my great grandfather - his name was Albert Charles As far as I know he was born at sea on an Irish schooner coming back from Ireland. His father was American and met a wife while in Ireland, on the way back my great grandfather was born the time was around 1880. I imagine he came through Ellis Island in NY. I believe he may be a relation to Gideon Tiffany as Delaware Ontario is only 10 minutes away from London Ontario Canada, where he eventually lived. There was a family rumor that he was from Syracuse NY -This is all I know - I beleive he died around 1950 . Any help would be appreciated if you have come across this name in your research.
