From the research of Bill Tufts:
Jacob married Catherine J. Grant (1816 - February 20, 1848) at the Episcopal Church in Portland Point, (a part of Saint John), on July 27, 1834.  He owned a woodlot of one hundred and fifty four acres inland from Long Beach.  He built a sawmill at Long Beach, near St. Martins, New Brunswick.  The point nearby came to be known as Tufts Point and the lake on his woodlot is named Tufts Lake after him.  He had a long beard and he only smoked once in his life to see what it was like.  His daughter, Martha, smoked a clay pipe and after trying it, Jake couldn’t understand why anyone would smoke. 
Jacob “Jake” often supplied the timber for the building of ships by his son, Capt. William, and nephew, Capt. Simon Tufts, as well as other builders.  When people couldn’t pay, he would accept part ownership of these vessels.  He worked hard all his life and even in his 80's, he went off to the woods in winter to cut trees for his mill.  On February 3, 1895, one of his neighbours passed him in the woods with his axe over his shoulder.  He asked Jake why he wasn’t in the woods cutting wood and the answer was: “I’m going home to die”.  He was dead before noon at the age of 87.
Long Beach was a seaport settlement that later was abandoned. The site now is the Fundy Trail which leads to Fundy National park.
            WILLIAM ELMORE TUFTS, Capt. (1836-1870)
WILLIAM, it is supposed, drowned in Saint John Harbour and grappling went on for a long time in the vicinity of Merritt’s wharf for several days under the supervision of his cousin, Capt. Benjamin Tufts (420-3). William was captain of the schooner Eva and had left Mr. Shank’s office to go on board his vessel which lay under the bow of the bark Lothair at Merritt’s wharf. The watchman of the latter vessel hailed him as he came aboard and he passed to the forecastle deck of the bark and was not seen since. It was supposed that he missed his footing on going over the foreward rail of the Lothair to board his own vessel. The next day Mr. Bridgeo continued in groppling for the body without success. Since the death of his brother Jacob his mind had been in a very depressed state. It was generally believed that he had drowned but his body was never recovered. His share of the schooner was sold and the missing man was morned as one of the dead. However, seven years later news arrived in New Brunswick by some one who had just returned from South American waters that Captain Tufts was alive and well living in Buenos Aires, Argentina under the name “Charlton”

Capt. William Tufts (1836 - December 23, 1870) was born in St. Martins, Saint John Co., N.B.  William Tufts lived around the bend from the Ed DeLong House (faces Mac’s Beach).  The next house was Archie Mack’s (Archie McCumber) and next was Captain William Tufts. 
                        Captain William Tufts married Sarah Ann DeLong (November 23, 1841 - November        10, 1911) of St. Martins on December 4, 1862.  She was the daughter of Aaron Delong and Sarah Berry. She died in Fredericton and was buried in the Sunny Bank Cemetery.

married Helena May McIntyre-Tufts (December 25, 1872 - November 13, 1949) on November 21, 1891 at Fairview, St. Martins East. She was the daughter of “Betsy” McIntyre (Jacob’s second wife-below) but went by the name Tufts.  School records show her as Helena May Tufts age 4 in 1876 in Long Beach.
Will and Helena had 10 children: Muriel, Guy, Les, Alvic, Bessie, Edward, Dora, Myrtle, Helen, and Lyle.
William (1870) and Helena were living in Fredericton but when Jacob Tufts died in 1895, they moved back to Long Beach presumably with children Muriel and Guy to care for Helena’s mother Betsey.  In 1898, Will moved his family to Fairfield and they were the last family to move away from Long Beach.  Betsy moved to Greer Settlement, St. Martins East, and lived in the ‘Greer House’. She died in 1906.
In 1911, “Will” went to Fredericton for his mother’s (Sarah Ann DeLong) funeral and met up with his step-father, Abner Gordon Clarke.
Will and Abner traded farms and in 1912, Will moved his family to New Maryland, (outside Fredericton) and Abner moved his family to Fairfield.

Guy Elmore Tufts, was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, on 5 May, 1895, and as a child lived in Fredericton (Devon), Long Beach, Fairfield, and New Maryland.
In 1915, at the age of twenty years, Guy went to Sussex, N.B., and enlisted on November 24th in the New Brunswick Battalion of the "CEF" (Canadian Expeditionary Force).  During this time, a series of illnesses prevailed.  As his Company pulled away from Canadian soil, Guy lay in a hospital bed fighting for his life against pneumonia. He did join the forces during WW1 in England.
Guy married Elizabeth Ellen “Lizzie” Gorman (June 19, 1896 - December 12, 1980) on August 13, 1919 in Fredericton.  She was the daughter of William Gorman and Mary May Jones.  After the war, Guy worked as a maintenance man for the RCMP and worked for the Post Office. While working for the RCMP Guy had the opportunity to acquire a round oak table and 4 arm chairs. These were in the St. Martins house on Beach St. and are still held by the family today.

In 1955, Guy and Lizzie bought the house in St. Martins at the end of Beach St., shown in the picture below next to the St. Martins train station. The train station and tracks are long gone of course, but the house is still in the family today, 2014

    1. Madeline Tufts is the widow of Elmore Tufts and mother of Bill, Martha and I believe the other sibling was Murray. All of Madeline and Elmore's children are deceased. info from the Quaco Museum curator. For further info you might check with archivist @quaco.ca

    2. I can't seem to track this Elmore and Madeline. Can anyone fill in the gaps for me or point out which family this is. I know some of the William Elmore's may have gone by Elmore, but can't seem to find Madeline. Thanks!

  3. Hello, I am descended from Marcella Wright, the daughter of Jabesh (Jabez) Wright and Lydia Tufts. We believe that Lydia was the eldest of the 9 children of Richard Tufts (1758-1822) and Mercy Marcella Floyd (1778-1860) who married in Mar 1800 in Halfax. Other children are: Thomas (1804), Jacob (1807), William (1810), Mary (1811), Isabella (1814), Sarah (1816), simon Floyd (1819) and Martha (1822).Are we in error, or how does that fit in? Thanks! Anne Stroud

    1. Anne, I believe your records match mine above of Richard Sr's second family. I do see a mistake in the Wright family or there were 2 Marcella's. I have not had time to research this family but if you could fill in the gaps of the entire Wright family I would love to share it here. I am not sure if Lydia married twice either. Please send me an e-mail or post the info here, Thanks!

    1. Thanks Gordon. I would love to add the details for your family. Send me an e-mail at ttuftsy@comcast.net or let me know how you wish to send it. I always love to fill in the blanks and keep living members private. Do you have contact with any other family and where are you located? I notice I didn't have much info on Clifford's father David, the sea Captain. If you anything to add, please pass it along.
