The following descendancy narrative is preliminary in nature. Thanks are owed to several people who have helped in this research. First, Arthur Gifford Goss for his work in Loveland, Colorado, records. Next, to Jeanne Smith for updates on modern Gifford descendants and especially for the photograph of Eunice (Case) Gifford. Although named in the bibliography, I wanted to acknowledge the Orleans County, New York, GenWeb site. With the exception of the federal census records, all information on the Orleans County branch of this family comes from their site's fine collection of transcribed records. In addition, anyone interested in the Bradford and Tioga Counties area of Pennsylvania must visit Joyce M. Tice's website, Tri-Counties Genealogy.
