Samuel Tiffany
Born 1700 Attleboro, Bristol, Massachusetts
Note:  I noticed on Ancestry.com that some claim the date is 7 April 1701, but the source attached to Samuel is wrong.  The parents listed in the attached record were Ephraim Tiffany and Bethia Tosh.  That makes him a cousin to the other Samuel.  Also, it was listed on Findagrave that he was born in 1701, but the headstone itself claims he died in the 81st year of his life - not the 80th.
