PREFACE 

This genealogical work, prepared chiefly for private circu- 
lation, does not claim to be, and is not, a complete record of 
this interesting family, which has played so important a part 
in the civil, military, and religious history of this country. 
Prepared chiefly for private use, it fulfills, however, the design 
of its promoters. 

The editor desires to make thankful acknowledgment of the 
valuable assistance he has received from various members of 
the Teflft and Tifft families, more especially from Mr. Oscar W. 
Tefft, of Greenwich, N. Y.. and Mrs. Maria E. Tifft. of Buffalo.

THE TEFFT ANCESTRY 

The year looo A. D. marks the date on, or near, which sur- 
names came into recognized use. They were usually taken 
from the estates owned by the bearers of such names, indicating, 
therefore, landed proprietors. In process of time the use of 
surnames was extended to natural objects, trades, and profes- 
sions, and even to personal traits and characteristics. 

The name TefEt has undergone the usual changes in spelling, 
being variously written Tefft, Teffe, Tifft, and Tift. It is of 
Saxon origin, and means "the place where a house has stood." 
The theory advanced by some that it is the anglicized form of 
the French "Thevet" is probably fanciful, and without his- 
torical warrant, for the name appears in early Saxon annals, 
and its origin and meaning are attested by William Arthur, and 
other etymological authorities. 

The first persons of the name in America were William and 
John Tefife, or TefTt, the former of whom settled in Boston not 
later than 1635, and the latter in Portsmouth, R. I. It is 
probable that these brothers were accompanied by a sister 
Sara, for there stood until recent years on Cole's farm, near 
Cole's Station, Warwick, R. I., a memorial slab, with the follow- 
ing inscription: "Here lieth ye bodie of Sara Tefft, interred 
March 16, 1642." This stone is now in the possession of the 
Rhode Island Historical Society, and is the oldest monumental 
slab in the State. 

It will be observed by the reader of the following pages that 
the Teffts were an intensely patriotic family, their names fre- 
quently appearing on the rosters of regiments in the Colonial, 
Revolutionary, and 181 2 wars. They were equally prominent 
in civil affairs, holding both local and State offices, sometimes 
for very many years. In religious faith they were generally 
Baptists, the prevailing sect in Rhode Island, a faith to which 
many of their descendants are loyal to the present time. 



The TefFt Ancestry 



There was a large emigration from Rhode Island to Wash- 
ington County, New York, in 1766, Nathan Tefft, Nathan, Jr., 
William, and Asa being the first of the name in that quarter. 
Other Teffts penetrated into Vermont, some remaining but a 
short time, and removing to Erie County, New York, while 
others remained permanently, the family name being still per- 
petuated there. 

The first emigrants were: 

I. William, m. Anna . 

, 2. John. m. Mary Barber. 

3. Sarah (probably), d. March 14, 1642. 



I William and Anna had: 

(4) Lydia. m. Deeble, and had son Abraham, who 

rem. from Boston to Haddam, Conn. William emigrated from 
England about 1633; settled in Boston, and carried on the tail- 
oring business. He was made a freeman December 24, 1638, 
and with his wife Anne, was admitted to the church on August 
2, 1640. 

His Last Will and Testament. 

Entered and recorded at the Suffolk Probate Office, Novem- 
ber 23, 1672.

The Tefft Ancestry 



John Tefft emigrated from England presumably with his 
brother William, settled temporarily in Boston, and removed 
thence to Portsmouth (Kings Town), R. I., where he d. Janviary 
1 8, 1676. On July 3, 1656, it was ordered by the town officers 
that "John Teft should haue 13-6-8 peage 6 P. white penny or 
black 3 P penny, to Keepe auld John mott this yeare for dyat 
lodging washing and looking to beayde the Cowe and the Corne 
that the auld man's son adam is engaged to giue." 

At a Town Meeting on Nov. 30, 1657 it was ordered that 
"Wm. Carrie and John Teifft shall be supplied with plantinge 
land on hoge Hand & to injoy to the tearme afore-s'' " 

He was made a freeman in 1655, a civil and political status 
which insured one a share in the common land, giving him also 
the right of suffrage on condition of owning a freehold estate of 
not less than $134. He is recorded as a resident of Petta- 
(luamscott in May, 1671. In his will he left to Samuel Wilson, 
his son-in-law, his new dwelling-house and twenty acres of land. 
To his wife Mary he bequeathed his cattle, two oxen, two cows, 
two yearling steers, eight swine kind, a ewe and a lamb, and all 
other movables: to his son Samuel two shillings; to son Joshua 
one shilling; to his daughter Tabitha one shilling, and an iron 
pot after his wife's decease. His debts to the amount of £1. 3s 
were to be paid equally by Samuel Wilson and son Joshua. 
Wife Mary d. 1679.

Samuel resided in Kings Town, R. I., where he was a freeman 
in 1677. He was fined 20s. for not attending Jury of General 
Court of Trials, but this fine was remitted the following year 
because he had not been duly summoned by the General Ser- 
geant. He and twenty -six others bought, on June 28, 1709, the 
tract called Swamptown, a portion of vacant lands in Narra- 
gansett. He died in 1725, and his will was proved Dec. 20, 
1725. His estate inventoried at ;^i,oio, 2s. 8d. a considerable 
one for those days, itemized as follows: Wearing apparel, 
sword, II cows, 4 oxen, 4 steers, 4 yearlings, 5 calves, 121 sheep,

estate of ;^4oi, 12s. Her father was a man of extraordinary 
mechanical genius, and he cut the die for the first issue of the 
"Pine Tree Shilling."

7 Joshua Tefft and Sarah had: 

(24) Peter, b. March 14, 1671/2. 

Joshua resided in Kings Town, R. I. He was captured while 
fighting on the Indian side during King Philip's War. Roger 
Williams writes thus to Governor Leverett, of Massachusetts, 
January 14, 1676: "This night I was requested by Capt. 
Fenner and other officers of our town to take the examinations 
and confession of an Englishman who hath been with the 
Indians both before and after the fight. His name is Joshua 
Tift, and he was taken this day by Capt. Fenner at an Indian 
house half a mile from where Capt. Fenner's house (now burned) 
did stand. He was asked how long he had been with the 
Narragansetts, and answered twenty-seven days, more or less. 
He said he was at his farm a mile and a half from Puttuckquam- 
scott where he hired an Indian to keep his cattle, himself pro- 
posing to go to Rhode Island, but the day he prepared to go a 
party of Indians came and told him he must die. He begged for 
his life, and promised he would be servant to the Sachem for 
life, and his life was given him as such slave. He was carried 
to the fort where were eight hundred fighting men. His eight 
cattle were killed. He said he was in the fort and waited on the 
Sachem till the latter was wounded, of which wound he died 
some days afterward. 

At the court martial a soldier testified that he had seen 
Joshua fire at the English several times, but he was not able to 
certify that any shot took efifect. Looking at this matter dis- 
passionately, one might say in charity that Joshua may have 
fired blank cartridges, and under compulsion. The witness must 
have had remarkable eyesight to have singled out'an' individual 
marksman at the probable distance. 

The really serious charge brought against Joshua was that he 
was a heathen, not having attended the Baptist services for 
several months, and, incidentally, that he had married a 
Wampanoag squaw. Roger Williams had perhaps forgotten his 
own experience at the hands of the Massachusetts Puritans, and 
that compulsory attendance on Divine Service sent him to 



The Tefft Ancestry 



Rhode Island to enjoy the rehgious and personal liberty which 
he denied to Joshua Tefft. 

So the latter was executed. 

If Joshua's story were true (and it was never disproved), he 
was an unwilling slave, and not a rebel soldier. He was exe- 
cuted January i8, 1676, a sentence that was considered pleasing 
to God.

from Rhode Island to Albany, in 1766, thence to Washington 
County, New York, traveling on horseback. He passed through 
trackless forests where neither path nor road existed, being 
guided by marks cut in trees, passing through Petersburg 
Valley as far up as Cambridge and thence across to Washington 
County, New York. His son Simon, a surveyor, accompanied 
him, and laid out the tract of land now embracing the Rogers', 
Collamer's, Richardson's, Parker's, Babcock's, and Tefft's farms. 
One year later Nathan brought his family to Galesville, N. Y., 
and built there a saw-mill, the first one on the Batten Kill. His 
untiring industry and wise management were rewarded with 
success, and he left a comfortable estate to his children. .

Rev. James Rogers rem. from Rhode Island to New York 
State, at the mouth of the Batten Kill, on the estate still owned 
by his great-grandson, A. Y. Rogers. A historic interest 
attaches to this farm, since from it Burgoyne's forces crossed 
the Hudson River on their march towards Albany, and here the

R. I., to Nassau, N. Y., in 1793, where he previously purchased 
a farm. The journey was made in winter, the family and house- 
hold goods being conveyed in sleds. The hardships of such a 
journey for a mother with eight children, the eldest but fifteen 
years of age, and the youngest a babe in arms, can readily be 
imagined. The route for much of the way lay through woods, 
the proper direction being given by marks on the trees. Storms 
and cold beset the brave pioneers, but they safely reached 
their destination in twenty-two days. The home which they 
planted in Nassau was the center of a domestic circle honored

Piatt, of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. 

William Harrison Tefft was b. in Little Valley, Cattaraugus 
County, N. Y., July 11, 1819. At the age of 15 he had resolved 
to become a printer, and for this purpose he secured a position 
on the Cattaraugus Whig. His ambition soon over-leaped the 
narrow limits of this field, and he directed his attention to mer- 
cantile life, and spent five years with Walter Chester, of Gerry, 
N. Y., in general merchandise. He then entered the service of 
Sidney Shephard & Co., the largest hardware dealers in western 
N. Y. His industry and ability won him a partnership in the 
firm, and he remained here fourteen years. Facilities for ex- 
tending one's business were but few in those earlier days, but 
young Tefft pushed on westward into the then distant Wiscon- 
sin, over into Canada, and along the southern shore of Lake Erie, 
travelling by boat and stage, and creating business by his indom- 
itable energy and sagacity. 

In 1854 he associated himself with a Mr. Moore in the manti- 
facture of car wheels and castings, and the house secured the 
contract for furnishing the Buffalo & Brantford Railway, the 
neucleus of what is now the Grand Trunk System. In 1855 he 
rem. to Detroit and engaged with modest success in the stove trade, 
buying out also the interests of Mr. Edward Shephard in a hard- 
ware store. In i860 he purchased a foundry, the lease of which 
he temporarily surrendered when the Civil War broke out, feai- 
ing that impending disaster would befall the entire country. A 



The Tefft Ancestry 72 

government contract for furnishing sheet iron camp stools, tin 
cans, and canteens, soon fortified Mr. Tefft with renewed cour- 
age and vigor, and in 1S63 he went into the stove business, a 
venture so successful that three years later he and Mr. Jeremiah 
Dwyer founded the now famous Detroit Stove Works, whose 
products are distributed over North and South America, Europe, 
Asia, and Australia. 

Mr. Tefi^t was president not only of the Detroit Stove Works, 
but also of the Banner Tobacco Works, the Frankfort Blast 
Furnace Company, of the Detroit and Saline Plank Road Com- 
pany, a director of the First National Bank of Detroit, of the 
Fire and Marine Insurance Company, of the Eldridge Sewing 
Machine Company, and of the Detroit Steel and Brass Manu- 
facturing Co., and a heavy stockholder in the Michigan Stove 
Works. 

A man of fine physical presence, genial manners, and public 
spirit, Mr. Tefft easily stood in the fore-front of Detroit's hon- 
ored citizens. He d. June 19, 1884. His wife, Lurinda Martha, 
was the dau. of William and Martha (Stebbins) Holbrook, b. in 
Forestville, N. Y., March 13, 1819. She was a lineal descendant 
of Ephraim Robertson, a Revolutionary soldier. She d. Jan-

several prisons, and finally died in Salisbury prison, N. C. His

He d. May 3, 1900. 

Mr. Tifft, like so many others of this widely extended family, 
was a se.f-made man. His early years were spent on his father's 
farm, and he gained in the district school the average education 
of the country-side in those days. When twenty-four years old 
he rem. to Buffalo, engaging in the dairy business, which he devel- 
oped into a large wholesale trade, supplying hotels, lake steamers, 
and grocers. He retired with a comfortable fortune in 1872, and 
confined himself thereafter, until his death, to his real estate 
interests. He was a devoted member and for fifteen years a 
trustee of Grace M. E. Church; generous, but wisely discriminat- 
ing in his charities, helpful to those less fortunate than himself, 
and a living illustration of what industry, integrity, and piety 
can do in fashioning the life and character of man. 

Mrs. Maria E. Tifft has earned the gratitude of that portion of 
the Tefft and Tifft families whose records were compiled by her 
and published in 1896. To her literary labors she has added 
those of a charitable and religious nature, having been a mem- 
ber of the Woman's Educational and Industrial Unions of Buf- 
falo since their organization.
