Genealogical Sketch of the Tiffany Family, By Ella F. Wright, 1904.  (Ella was one of his descendants)
Chronicles of a Connecticut Farm 1769-1905 (this is a document regarding Ephraim Tiffany's land after his death where a Samuel Tiffany is listed as "heir-at-law"  the land had a claim made against it by the Brown family upon Ephraim's death and Samuel had to pay 236 pounds).
Elizabeth Tiffany
Born 11 Apr 1680 Milton, Norfolk, Massachusetts
Married Supposedly Edward Paine, but highly doubtful.  The reported marriage between Elizabeth Tiffany and Edward Paine didn't reportedly take place until 1724 - which would place her in her mid forties and not end having children until her 80's - not possible unless you are in the Bible.  There has to be another Elizabeth Tiffany born among the next generation.
