In Reply to: Looking for information of TIFFT family, 1880's / Jefferson Co. by Julia Lewis of 1333

One of the things i do at work is find things on the net *wink*...also..remember...Ellisburg is a small village..actually a hamlet..however the town of Ellisburg is HUGE. Just looking in the Village of Ellisburg will not do it. Peirpont Manor is in the town of Ellisburg. Mannsville is in the town of Ellisburg. Woodville, Belleville, Rural Hill and a few others are also in Ellisburg. That's a whole lot of area. To make it worse..Adams borders on Town of Ellisburg, so does Henderson and Sandy Creek. (lorraine even pops up against town of ellisburg if i remember)

Also..a whole lot of families from Ellisburg CAME from Lorraine.

sat. is beautiful there Used to go swimming at the damn. :)
