Tiffany cash-claimed a quarter in 22, 2N 48W in 1889 - the quarter where the Yuma County fairgrrounds now is located.

He gave testimony at the suit regarding ownership of the Weed and Allbert quarters.
"At the hearing ordered and had at the Akron office, fifteen witnesses were examined by Weed. Of all these but two testify to his continuous residence upon the land. These two witnesses are William O. Orum and T. B. Babcock, who were also his final proof witnesses. The remaining thirteen witnesses were used chiefly to impeach the testimony of Dunn and his wife, who were witnesses for the contestant at the Denver hearing, and also to assail the character and good faith of the contestant. His own testimony and that of Orum and Babcock is to the effect that he built his shanty on the land in the month of February, 1885."
