Centralia Daily Chronicle. Friday, July 10, 1931. p. 1.

Centralia friends of Mrs. Doroth Titus, wife of Leon Titus, well known Southwest Washington automobile dealer, were both shocked and grieved today when Associated Press dispatches to the Daily Chronicle announced that she had jumped from the fourteenth floor of the Sir. Francis Drake hotel in San Francisco and was instantly killed.

Mrs. Titus, whose home was in Olympia, left that city May 29, for Saratoga, California, for medical treatment and a rest following a nervous breakdown. She had been registered at the Sir. Francis Drake hotel for the past two weeks. She was accompanied to California by her sister, Miss Oral Towey.

Mrs. Titus left a note on hotel stationery, the dispatches said, which read:

"Who would want to be in an asylum for four yearsin a living death? I must go now. I left my rings and watch on. Could no longer stand the pain and the thought that everybody thought me mad instead of ill.'

Mrs. Titus was 42 years of age. She received her introduction to Centralians in March, 1913, when she and her husband opened a Ford agency here in partnership with A. C. St. John. In January, 1920, Mr. Titus purchased the interests of Mr. St. John in the business. By 1922, Mr. Titus was operating agencies also in Olympia, Tenino, Aberdeen and Hoquiam, and he and his wife moved to Olympia to be closer to the center of his extensive business holdings.

The Lowell Sun. Thursday, June 8, 1972. p. 44.

LOWELL - Harold A. Titus, M.D., 72, well known retired local physician and surgeon, died unexpectedly Tuesday evening at the New England Baptist Hospital.

He was born in this city Jan. 28, 1900, the son of the late Afton G. and Alma (Auringer) Titus and had made his home in this city practically all of his life.

Educated in the Lowell schools, he was graduated from Lowell High School and matriculated at Tufts College, where he received a B.S. degree in 1920. He then enrolled at Tufts Medical School, from which he graduated with the Class of 1924 and was awarded the degree of Doctor of Medicine, Cum Laude.

Dr. Titus served his internship at the Lowell Corporation Hospital, which later grew to become St. Joseph's Hospital. He established a private practice in this city in 1926 and actively practiced medicine and surgery in the Greated Lowell area until 1942, at which time Dr. Titus volunteered his services to the United States Army Medical Corps and was commissioned a Major. After a brief tour of duty at Fort Devens, he was transferred to Brooks General Army Hospital in Texas and shortly thereafter was chosen to pursue further study at Columbia University Medical School for specialized training in neuro-surgery. Dr. Titus was then assigned to the 5th Surgical Group of the United States Army Medical Corps and performed surgery in England, France and Germany during the years 1942 through 1945. During that period, Dr. Titus also headed a surgical team with General Patton's 3rd Army in the European Theater of Operations.

For many years, Dr. Titus was chief of surgery as well as president of the Medical Staff of the Lowell General Hospital and held an active service on the surgical staffs of the Lowell General Hospital and St. Joseph's Hospital for many years. He retired from active service in June of 1968 but remained on the honorary staff of both the Lowell General and St. Joseph's hospitals.

Immediately following his retirement, he established his residence in New Hampshire and since that time, Dr. and Mrs. Titus had spent their winters in Hillsboro Beach, Fla.

Since childhood, Dr. Titus had been an active member of St. Paul's Methodist church of Lowell and for many years had served as a member of the Board of Trustees of that church. He was a member of William North Lodge, AF and AM of Lowell and also held membership in the Sons of the American Revolution.

In 1935 Dr. Titus was elected as a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. His professional affiliations included membership in the American Medical Association; the Massachusetts Medical Society and the Lowell Medical Club.

Portsmouth Herald. Feb. 5, 1906. p. 3.

Somewhere in the solitudes of Death Valley lie the bones of Earl Weller and E. M. Titus. They started out one summer morning accompanied by John Mullin, with two horses and 19 burros. Soon after getting into the desert they lost their way, and at the end of five days the horses dropped dead. Titus laft the others and started out in a blind search for a water hole. Weller and Mullin remained, and by digging got a small supply of water each day for themselves but none for the burros. The animals died one by one. Filling three canteens with water, Weller started out to find Titus. He never returned. Mullin was found delirious and almost dead in the camp.

Such instances might be continued almost indefinitely. The most terrible tales told by prospectors who have been rescued would be surpassed in horror by many others, no doubt, but those tales will never be told, because the bones of the victims lie in the sand and blazing sun somewhere in the deadly desert.

Kaukauna, Wis., April 8. - Capt. E. P. M. Titus, aged sixty-eight years, one of the oldest lake captains in point of service on the Great Lakes. died Tuesday evening at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. M. Black, after an active life extending up to two years ago. For over forty-five years Captain Titus had navigated the lakes and once, twenty-seven years ago, crossed the Atlintic ocean in one of his own ships, sailing from Green Bay with a load of deal - pine plank - with a three masted schooner and landed the cargo safely at Glasgow, Scotland. He was his own pilot, sailing the craft from port to port by charts and making a successful voyage.

Captain Titus was born close to the north shore of Lake Erie at Vienna on Christmas day, 1840, and married Miss Rebecca Foster at Port Burwell, close by his home. A remarkable coincidence is connected with the lives of these two who have led so long a life together. Both were born in Christmas day and they were both married on the same days. Most of the time they resided at Marine City, Detroit and Fenton, Mich. About ten years ago they came to Kaukauna, their only son, Dr. D. A. Titus, now dead, residing here, and six years ago went to Port Caldwell, Can., where the captain invested in a large fishery, which he successfully conducted to the time of his death.

At the death of his son, Dr. Titus, three years ago, Captain Titus' health began to fail and he retired from active life two years ago, coming back to Kaukauna one month ago with his wife to spend the remainder of their days. He was taken to St. Elizabeth's hospital for an operation a week ago, but his condition did not admit of the ordeal.

Surviving are his widow and three daughters, Mrs. Haines Saxton of Aylmer, Ont., Mrs. Lillian Black of Kaukauna and Mrs. Bertha Wheeler of Port Arthur, Can. The funeral will be held from the home of his daughter, Mrs. Black, Friday afternoon at two o'clock, Rev. J. E. Manning of the M. E. church officiating. Interment will be at the Kelso cemetery.

The Washington Post. Wednesday, June 5, 1907. p. 3.

London, June 4. - Edna May, the American actress, was married this morning at the registry office at Windsor to Oscar Lewisohn, son of the late Leonard Lewisohn, of New York, in the presence of a few relatives and intimate friends.

The honeymoon will be spent in a motoring tour on the continent.

Edna May is the daughter of a Schenectady letter carrier. Until she married Fred Titus, the bicycle rider, her name was Edna Petty. She separated from Titus in 1898, while she was in England.

When scarcely seventeen years old, Edna May came to New York and got a position in the chorus production by Oscar Hammerstein, called "Santa Maria."

After her marraige to Titus she retired for a short time, but the call of the stage was too strong and she joined the Casino forces with George Lederer in "The Belle of New York," in which she was cast for a Salvation Army lassie. She was shy and timid on the first night, but after she had sung the "Follow On" song for a dozen encores the play was made and Edna May was famous.

"The Belle of New York" ran on and on. The production was taken to London, where it caught the fancy of the Britishers, and where Miss May repeated the hit she had scored in New York. Since then London has been her home, and her visits here have been few and infrequent.

After her separation from Titus, there were many rumors of her engagement to a various assortment of dukes, earls, princes, and members of parliament.

Then Oscar Lewisohn, the copper magnate, began to pay attention to Miss May. He followed her from New York to London and back to New York. Miss May divorced Titus early in 1905. and a few months later it was announced that Miss May was engaged to Mr. Lewisohn.

Mr. Lewisohn will establish a racing stable in England when he finishes his extensive honeymoon. From all that can be learned it is his intention to live in England the rest of his life.

Looking at the brick facade of the long building at 215 N. South St. few, except the initiated would have any idea of the interesting things that go on inside the general foundry and machine shops of E. E. Titus, Inc.

The Titus plant is an old family foundry, now being operated by the third generation.

It was in 1882 that Elmer E. Titus, of New York state, came to Petersburg to install some machinery. He must have found the community to his liking for he stayed and in 1884 founded a general machine shop and iron foundry. It was within a stone's throw of the firm's present location at the junction of South Commerce and Jones Sts.

E. E. Titus, founder of the company died July 1, 1935 and immediately afterward the firm was incorporated. Chartered as a machine shop and foundry, it was actively operated by the founder's son, J. M. Titus who was in the business all his life until his death in 1952. A grandson, E. Neil Titus, has been with the firm since 1923 and is its president. Two other grandsons, all are sons of J. M. Titus, are with the firm, J. Madison Titus, vice president, who came with the business in 1941 and Jennings H. Titus, secretary-treasurer, who joined his brothers in 1947,

Nashua. Oct. 28, - A probe of the death of his estranged wife at a summer camp on the shores of Lake Attitash at Merrimac, Mass. was demanded yesterday by Harold A. Titus of Providence, R. I.

Mrs. Esther May Titus, of 21 East Pearl street, 23, died Saturday at the summer camp, and when the physician attending her declared that death was due to pneumonia the body was turned over to a Lawrence undertaker and was transferred to this city yesterday.

Titus appeared at the local police station yesterday morning and asserted that there was a mystery surrounding his wife's death, and that he demanded an investigation. He declared, police stated, that he had received a telegram in Providence from Haverhill, Mass., saying "Esther is dead" and signed "Mother." Titus rushed to Haverhill and when he was unable to learn where his wife had died appealed to police. He asserted that the telegram sent to him was telephoned from a pay station to the telegraph office by a man.

Haverhill police finally learned that Mrs. Titus died at a camp at Lake Attitash. Dr. Myron Livingston of Haverhill who was called to the camp to attend her, stated that death was due to pneumonia. He also stated that he understood that the older woman who attended Mrs. Titus at the camp was her mother. The woman's body was turned over Saturday night to a Lawrence undertaker. "Whatever may have happened to the woman before I was called to attend her I have no knowledge of." Dr. Livingston stated.

Mr. and Mrs. F. E. Titus Invite All Old Friends to Attend Reception Sunday

Houses standing on some of the most prominent business sites in Bismarck were the places in which the children of Mr. and Mrs. F. E. Titus, 212 Thayer west, who celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary Sunday, were born.

Though none of the children will be here, the occasion will be gladdened for Mr. and Mrs. Titus by the presence of her sister, Mrs. R. H. Ferry of Wilton, the only living relative of Mrs. Titus who was present at the wedding performed in 1886 in the home of the bride's parents in Minneapolis. Rev. J. Van Avery, a methodist minister, was the officiating minister.

Will Hold Open House

Mr. and Mrs Titus are inviting all of their friends to call between the hours of 4 and 7 p. m. Sunday, when they will hold open house.

Two long-time friends of Mrs. Titus, Mrs. Frank G. Grambs and Miss Jessie I. Ramp, are to be at the tea table which will be appointed in the white and gold colors customary for these occasions. The cloth will be a crocheted one of intricate pattern made by Mrs. Titus herself which will be laid over a gold cover. Miss Winnie Stephens of Stonton will aid in receiving the guests, and the assistants in the dining room are to be the Misses Doris and Ruth Clements and the Misses Dorothea and Cleo Arness.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Titus inherited their Methodist faith through their families and have been actively identified with the McCabe Methodist Episcopal congregation which will join with them in noting their anniversary at the Sunday morning services. Mrs. Titus has helped with ladies' aid work in the local church since she came here.

Children All Are Living

Three children, all now living have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Titus, and there are several grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. The children are Mina A., the wife of George E. Juell, a printer at Spokane, Wash., Lloyd E., formerly an automobile mechanic at Everett, Wash., and now garage foreman for a bus line with headquarters at Portland, Ore., and Opal M., the wife of W. Chester Cavanaugh, of Kansas City, Mo., a m......? superintendent in the employ of the Continental Oil Co.

The Juell children are Lillyann Alice, now Mrs. Ralph Davis of Arcadia, Calif., Alta V., now Mrs. James K. Nelson of Oregon City, Ore. and Leonard Lloyd who is attending college at Arcadia and living with the Davises. There also are three children in the Lloyd E. Titus family. Blanche, Mrs. J. Cecil Kelly of Portland, Ore. and Frank E. and James Qually (?), both at home. Mrs. Cavanaugh has a daughter, Vivian Alta.

The great-grandchildren are June (?) Marie Davis and Betty Lou Nelson. During the summer, two great-grandsons, Teddy Nelson, 4 years old, and his two-day old brother, Leonard, died.

Lived In Many Homes

Mina, Mrs. Titus recalls, was born in Minneapolis, and Clifford, who died at the age of 10 days, Lloyd and Opal, all in Bismarck: Clifford where the Quain and Ramstad clinic now stands, Lloyd in the old Healy building and Opal in a home where the telephone exchange now stands.

Coming here in 1883, Mr. and Mrs. Titus have seen much of Bismarck's growth and have lived here continuously ever since. Mrs. Titus observed her 68th birthday on Sept. 10 and Mr. Titus his 74th of Jan. 13 of this year.

The Crawford History of North Dakota relates that "Mr. Titus began his wage-earning career at the early age of 18 years in the oil fields of Pennsylvania and that he advanced steadily in position and fortune until he now occupies the important office of engineer for the power house of the state capital of Bismarck." Mr. Titus held this position until three years ago when he became seriously troubled with a heart ailment and since has been custodian at the Masonic temple.

Career Is Colorful

This Crawford account continues: "His career has been an interesting and varied one, and for three years he served on steamboats in the United States government service, engaged principally in clearing the Missouri river of snags and other obstructions and deepening and widening the channel, which resulted in making the great stream navigable for vessels of considerable draft.

"Mr. Titus was born Jan. 13, 1862, at Titusville, Pa., and is the son of James and Alta (Hill) Titus. The original ancestor in this country was a Hollander who came here in colonial times and settled in New York. Later the family moved to the Pennsylvania Dutch regions in Nuntington county, Pa., where was born the grandfather of Frank E. Titus. The latter became a civil engineer and moved to the vicinity of Titusville, which community was nemed in his honor and because of his accomplishments and good citizenship. James Titus, the father of Frank E. Titus was born Nov. 12, 1833, at Titusville, where he was reared and married, and in young manhood adopted the vocation of farming. Like countless others of his locality he became interested in the oil industry and became one of the substantial men of the community, but the great panic of 1873 caught him unaware and he lost practically all of his fortune. However, he was a man of no small degree of determination, and refused to allow his reverses to discourage him. While he never was able to accumulate another fortune, he gained a comfortable competence, upon which he retired to Cambridge Springs, Pa., in 1903, and there died in April, 1926, one of his country's highly respected citizens. He was a Republican in his political convictions and a member and strong supporter of the Methodist Episcopal church. Mr. Titus married for his first wife Miss Alta Hill, who was born in 1843 in Cataraugus County, N.Y., and who died near Titusville, Pa., in April, 1868, and they had two children, Mina, and Frank E. The latter is the Bismarck resident. After the death of his first wife, Mr. Titus married a Miss Elvira Miller and they became the parents of six children.

Educated at Titusville

Frank E. Titus received his education in the schools of Titusville, which he attended until reaching the age of 16 years, at which time he went to worl in a humble capacity in the fields of northwest Pennsylvania. During his youth he applied himself to learning the trade of stationary engineer at Titusville and Bradford, and followed that vocation there until 1883, when he came to Bismarck, and for the four years that followed was engineer in a flour mill, For two years he was engineer at the high school and in 1889 was ...... engineer on the steamboat Josephine, a government vessel plying the waters of the Missouri river. This position he retained for 14 years following which he was for four years on the steamer Mandan, for 12 years on the steamer McPherson, and for one year on the steamer Missouri, all in government service, engaged in snagging the river and clearing the channel. Mr. Titus then was employed for two years by Frank G. Grambs, a plumber of Bismarck, and Aug. 1, 1922, was appointed engineer of the power house at the state capital.

Has Many Affiliations

Like his father, Mr. Titus is a Republican in political views. He is a 32nd degree Mason and a member of Bismarck Lodge No. 5, A.P. & A. M.; Bismarck Chapter No. 10, R.A.M. Tanered Commandery No. 1, K.T. of Bismarck; Bismarck Lodge of Perfection; Missouri Slope chapter; Rose Croix, and Bismarck-Mandan Consistory; St. Elmo Lodge No. 4, K of P., of which he is a past chancellor; Bismarck Lodge No. 120, A.O.U.W, and Bismarck Lodge 1199, B.P.O.E. Besides owning the home in which they have lived for 35 years, Mr. and Mrs. Titus have a dwelling located at 204 Thayer avenue.

Mrs. Titus was Miss Lizzie W. Walton before their marriage and is the daughter of William W. and Diadema (Johnson) Walton. Her father served with the 12th New Jersey regiment in the Civil war and was married to her mother immediately after the close of the conflict.

The Wages of Sin Paid by the Sinner, Morris Newton, of Delton


The Career of Frances Titus and Her Lover Was Brief and Ended With a Shocking Tragedy

Frances Titus, of Cloverdale, was married to Morris Newton, of Delton, Wednesday, just before noon. Immediately after the marriage in Grand Rapids the couple came to Newton's parents' home, near the village of Cloverdale. It was after they left that the body of their six months' old child was found in the Grand River at Grand Rapids. Wife and husband were in the Newton Home when Grand Rapids police officers got the house by 'phone and asked the questions which caused Morris to go out into the yard, without a word to his wife or anyone else, and shot himself to death. Later the officers came and took the wife to Grand Rapids, where she is in jail. She made this statement:

"Soon after my baby was born my husband began to devise means to get rid of it. He wanted to poison it. He said he would bury it in Cloverdale. I would not consent to this. Then he talked of throwing it in the river, and to this, also, I objected.

"I suggested leaving the baby on somebody's doorstep. Then he stopped talking of killing it. I wanted him to take it to the Children's home Tuesday night, but he wouldn't call up the home on the phone. Finally he put the baby in the suit case, saying he would leave it on the doorstep of a cousin of mine. He left the house at 8 p.m. and came back at 10:20. Then we packed up and went to a hotel.

"Wednesday morning we went to Delton. A reporter came and questioned myself and husband. After we had all gone to bed my husband thought he heard a step on the porch and thought the officers had come. He went out in the yard and shot himself."

Thus does Frances Titus Newton, of Cloverdale, Barry county, place with her dead husband responsibility for the death of their six-weeks old baby girl, whose dead body was found Wednesday morning by a wood picker floating in the Grand River in a suitcase perforated with holes. The name of Mrs. Newton's father, a farmer near Cloverdale, led to the solution of the mystery.

Only a few years ago Frances Titus was one of the cheeriest, most popular girls in Cloverdale and Denton. Every one liked her and there was always rivalry among the boys in the little country school as to who should take her to dances and parties.

But Morris Newton, stalwart, well dressed, won her heart. They were engaged to be married, but Morris first was anxious to have his fling in the city. Frances went with him. Their visits to Grand Rapids in each other's company became more frequent. The glamor of the city dazzled the little country girl.

The old, old story was retold.

Pallbearers Named

Honorary pallbearers will be Duncan McGillis, Charles Pearce, C. G. Boise, Frank Evarts, Frank Gage, William Watson, McKenzie; Jodge A. G. Burr, Ole Johnson, R. M. Bergeson, Arthur Hollensworth, D. H. Houser, and E. G. Wanner.

Born in Titusville, Pa., Jan. 13, 1862, Mr. Titus was a scion of an old Colonial Dutch family.

The original American forebear came from Amsterdam, Holland, to settle in New York in the early beginnings of American Colonial history. Later the family moved to the Dutch settlement in Huntington county, Pa., where was born the grandfather of Frank E. Titus.

Grandfather an Engineer

This grandfather became a civil engineer and moved to the vicinity of what is now Titusville. The community was named in his honor. It was here that James Titus, father of the Bisnarck man, was born Nov. 12, 1833.

Like most other residents of Northwest Pennsylvania in those days, Frank Titus's father became engaged in the oil industry. It was a profitable occupation for a while and he built up a sizeable fortune, only to see it swept away in the great panic of 1873. Undiscouraged, he started anew and was able to retire in comfort to Cambridge, Pa. in 1903. He died at Cambridge in April, 1926.

Mr. Titus' mother was Miss Alta Hill of New York before her marriage. She was born in 1843 in Cataraugus county, N. Y., and died near Titusville in April, 1868.

Frank E. Titus received his education in the public schools of Titusville, cutting short his formal learning when he was 16 tears old to take work in the Pennsylvania oil fields. It was at this time that he learned the trade of the stationary engineer which he was to follow for the rest of his active life.

Came Here in 1883

Leaving Pennsylvania when he was 21 years of age, Mr. Titus came to Bismarck in 1883 to take employment as engineer in a flour mill for four years. Following that he was engineer at Bismarck high school for two years.

It is the next and longest period in Mr. Titus' life that must take rank as the most picturesque of his career, covering as it does 31 years as an engineer on government steamboats plying the then busy channel of the Missouri river.

In 1899, Mr. Titus became engineer on the steamer "Josephine." a position which he kept for 14 years until he took the same job on another government boat, the "Mandan>" This was followed by 12 years on the "McPherson" and one year on the "Missouri."

Each of these boats was used to keep the channel free from snags that might interrupt river navigation.

The day came, however, when the necessity of keeping the channel open for river boats no longer existed and Mr. Titus turned to land for employment. For two years he worked as a plumber and then in August, 1922, was appointed engineer at the state capital powerhouse.

Was Engineer at Capital

Mr. Titus served as capital engineer until 1933, when ill health forced him to resign. Afterward he became custodian of the Masonic temple, the position he held at the time of his death. He would have served eight years in that capacity in August.

Mr. Titus married miss Lizzie M. Walton, daughter of a Civil War veteran, at the home of her parents in Minneapolis, Minn., in 1866. On Dec. 27, 1936, the couple observed their golden wedding anniversary.

Three children, all still living, were born to Mr. and Mrs. Titus and there are many grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. Children are Mrs. George E. Juell, Spokane, Wash.; Mrs. W. C. Cavanaugh, Kansas City, Mo,; and Lloyd E. Titus, Portland, Ore.

Mrs. Cavanaugh and her daughter, Miss Vivian Cavanaugh came to Bismarck when Mr. Titus first was taken ill and are still here. Lloyd E. Titus also came to Bismarck when his father entered the hospital and remained for 10 days, returning to his home to attend to business. He and Mrs. Titus were to arrive Monday noon for the funeral services. Word has not been received from Mrs. Juell.

Member of Many Lodges

Mr. Titus also leaves three half-sisters, Mrs. W. G. Fuller, Miami, Fla.; Miss Bertha Titus and Mrs. O. L. Martin, both of Cambridge Springs, Pa.; two half-brothers, William and Luther Titus, also of Cambridge Springs, Pa., and one cousin, R. H. Davenport, Elizabeth, N. J.

He was a member of the Burleigh County Pioneer association since its organization. Mith Mrs. Titus he attended every function given by the group since it has been organized.

Mr Titus was a member of the Methodist church and was active in both church and lodge functions. He was a 32nd degree Mason and a member of the Bismarck lodge No. 5 A.F and A. M.; Bismarck Chapter No. 10 R. A. M.; Tancred Commandery No. 1 K. T. Bismarck; Mismarck Lodge of Perfection; Missouri Slope chapter, Rose Croix; Mismarck-Mandan Consistory; St. Elmo Lodge No. 4, K of P., of which he was a past chancellor; Bismarck Lodge No. 120, AOUW, and Bismarck Lodge BPOE. He held charter memberships in all those organizations.

Trenton Times. Friday, January 20, 1905. p. 1.

Harmon H. Titus, one of the best known of Trenton men and one of the oldest and most respected citizens, died this morning at 4 o'clock at Mercer Hospital after an illness of one week. Death was due to pneumonia.

Mr. Titus was confined to Mercer Hospital last Spring and Summer for a period of four months because of a peculiar affliction of the veins of his leg. He was given up by his physicians but eventually recovered and enjoyed fairly good health until ten days ago when he contracted a cold which quickly developed into pneumonia.

Harmon H. Titus was born seventy-five years ago at Stony Brook and of ancestry which had for many years figured prominently in the affairs of Mercer county. He came to Trenton fifty-five years ago and continued a resident until his death.

Several years ago he was the most extensive grain dealer in this section and conducted a shipping station at the present site of the Trenton Transportation Company. He was a miller by trade and was identified with grain business at the time of his last illness, having a store at 126 South Warren street.


Mr Titus was a widower. His wife, who was Letia Updike of Trenton, died about eight years ago. There were no children by the union. He leaves one brother and one sister, who are Mrs. Ida Stryker of Somerville and Benjamin Titus, father of Mrs. Augustus F. Stoll of 838 West State street.

Mr Titus was a cousin of Howard Titus, Welling Titus and Albert Titus of this city and an uncle by marriage of Mrs. Austin Snyder of West State street.

Mr. Titus enjoyed the friendship and confidence of many of the older well known men of Trenton. In politica he was an active Republican but never held office. He took great pride in the fact that for many years he was the first voter to cast his ballot election days in the Second precinct of the Second ward.

He was an active member of the First Presbyterian Church and has been identified with the congregation for most of the years of his life in Trenton.

The funeral arrangements have not been completed but services will either beheld (sic) in the mortuary chaple (sic) of David Taylor Ivins or the First Presbyterian Church. Other details will be arranged upon the arrival here of Mrs. Stryker, his sister.

Timber - The Plot And Review. p. 19.

Very little has been written about Titus, who lived in Traverse City most of his life. He was born Feb. 20, 1888, to Josephine and Dorr Titus in an era when conservation was becoming a national topic for the first time. His father died when he was a baby.

When he was two, lumber production in Michigan peaked. Its decline was almost imperceptible at first, as loggers and sawmills shifted to hardwoods. Meanwhile, Traverse City’s first boom occurred from 1880- 1900, while he was growing up. It changed the face of the growing lumber town

when Titus was a little boy.

Handsome new brick buildings replaced wood structures downtown. New Victorian homes went up along Sixth Street. The population almost quintupled, zooming from 1,897 to 9,407.

By 1900, Harold Titus was 12 — old enough to remember the boom and to witness the bust that would follow. The next year, Teddy Roosevelt became the first president devoted heavily to conservation, something that must have made an impression on the Traverse City teenager. Over the next seven years, TR placed 230 million acres under public protection, and established and dedicated 150 national forests, 51 federal bird reservations, four national game preserves, five national parks and 18 national monuments.

Titus played football in high school and was working at the Evening Record in 1907 when he and another high school student there, Jay Smith, took off to attend the University of Michigan.

They were “excellent reporters and turned out a very high grade of work,” the Record reported in a farewell story on Sept. 19, 1907.

Titus covered University of Michigan sports and campus events for the Detroit News. He left school because of a bout with tuberculosis and became a News crime and courts reporter, covering sensational trials. In 1912, he went to Colorado and worked with cowboys for several weeks. He married Beth Benedict, who would be his wife of 53 years, in 1914, and came back to his hometown.

His first three books, all westerns, were “I Conquered” (1916), “Bruce of Circle A” (1918) and “The Last Straw” (1920). He wrote 11 novels in all, and hundreds of short stories and magazine articles.

Timber was his fourth novel. The author’s sense of responsibility and stewardship was awakened in 1918, shortly after he returned home from stateside service in World War I. He traveled to a favorite tract of forest along the Manistee River and saw a doe swimming frantically for her life down the river, pursued by poachers and their dogs. It appalled him and motivated him to write a series of stories that eventually became “Timber,” Kates said.

Over the next six decades, Titus would see new state forests rise in the northern Michigan wastelands of his youth. Michigan’s state forests now cover nearly 4 million acres, the largest dedicated state forest system in the United States. When he died on Oct. 9, 1967, northern Michigan was a vastly better place from the cutover wasteland he was born into. And Harold Titus helped make it so.

His father leaped into the water, caught hold of the boy, and held his head above water. Meanwhile the cruiser, with Mrs. Titus and a 10-year-old girl passenger, drifted aimlessly out into the Sound.

Titus' wife was unable to operate the boat, and watched helplessly as her husband struggled to stay afloat with his burden.

Meanwhile ferry operator Richard Howd saw the accident from shore, jumped into his own cruiser, and sped to the scene. He pulled the exhausted Titus, still hanging on to his son, aboard.

Reno Evening Gazette. Wednesday, Oct. 3, 1934. p. 2.

DENVER, Oct. 3 - (AP) - A systematic police search today had uncovered only faint clues in the disappearance of Lieut. Col. Isaac E. Titus, fifty-three-year-old army officer from Fort Bliss, Tex, who vanished here Saturday night.

Patrolman Elmer Young and F. M. Writer informed Detective Capt. Roy Mack they had been called to a filling station in North Denver Sunday afternoon on a report of a suspicious character.

They questioned the man who was pointed out to them and he showed them a card bearing Colonel Titus' name and title and told them he was staying at a cottage camp.

The officers said they called a cab and saw the army officer drive off in the machile.

After Colonel Titus' wife reported him missing yesterday, the police officers located the cab driver and he said the army officer requested to be let out on a business street in the lower section of the city. That was the last trace police have been able to obtain of the officer.

Colonel Titus and his wife, Mrs. Margaret Titus, arrived here Friday night from Fort Bliss en route to Batavia, Ohio. Mrs. Titus told police they planned to remain here over the week-end. She said she became ill Saturday and Saturday night her husband left the cottage camp where they were staying, promising to return in a few minutes with coffee for her.

About 11:00 p. m. the camp received a call from Colonel Titus asking the proprietor to tell Mrs. Titus that the army officer had become confused as to directions and could not find where he had parked his car. That was the last his wife heard from him. She said he had $226 with him and police feared he may have been robbed.

Patrolmen Young and Writer said he appeared "a bit dazed" when they saw him in North Denver Sunday.

Mrs. Titus said her husband suffered a head injury and a broken collar bone when he fell in a Fort Bliss hotel recently.

The army officer had been retired and was on his way to visit relatives in Ohio.

TRENTON, N. J. Dec. 28 - James J. Titus of Hackettstown, who since 1885 has been serving a life sentence in the New Jersey state prison here for the killing of Tillie Smith, servant, in a Hackettstown school, where Titus was janitor, was freed on parole yesterday by the court of pardons.

Gov Franklin Murphy, at his last meeting with the court yesterday, before his retirement to private life, made a strong appeal for Titus' release.

The governor for a long time has been much interested in the efforts of Titus' wife and daughter to obtain his liberty. Chancellor Magle, a principal member of the court, cast his ballot against interference.

Titus, upon his release, was met at the prison door by his daughter, Mrs William Goeler of Newark, but she did not know him, and he had to be introduced to her, as she was only a child when he was convicted. At that time she declared that she would never look upon him as a convict, and, with her mother, who died a month ago, set resolutely to work to obtain his freedom.

Titus returned to Hackettstown to visit his aged mother.

Tilly Smith was choked to death in a lot near the school. Titus was convicted on circumstantial evidence. He afterward confessed, declaring the killing was done accidentally in a quarrel.

Nevada State Journal. Sunday, December 25, 1966. p. 2.

A jewelry salesman reported to police he was bound and gagged in a robbery Saturday morning.

The complaint was made yesterday by John F. Titus, 26, of 1900 Idlewild Drive.

Titus said it all started in a Second Street tavern where he met a woman of casual acquaintance. As he talked to the woman, she was joined by another man.

Titus said that he agreed to give the man a ride home and that all three left the tavern together and went to his car, parked near Second and Stevenson streets.

The girl asked if she could drive. Titus slipped into the passenger seat in front, the other man got in the back seat.

Suddenly, Titus said, a snub-nosed pistol was placed against the back of his neck - and his acquaintance said "put your hands on the dashboard and don't make any fast moves."

Titus said he was then driven to an apartment at 313 N. Arlington Avenue and forced to go inside at gunpoint.

His hands were then taped to his feet, behind his back, and more tape was slapped across his mouth. His robbers, at one point, left the apartment to get more tape, Titus said.

The man and woman relieved Titus of his wallet, $100 cash, a wrist watch valued at $400, and his top coat. They told him they would leave his automobile parked across the street.

After struggling for some time, Titus said, he freed himself and telephoned for police.

Police said the suspects match the description of the persons involved in the kidnapping and robbery of Jeffrey J. Elpern, 20, of 1255 Jones St., last Thursday.

The Boston Daily Globe. Monday, March 9, 1891. p. 2.

St. Albans, March 8. - On a farm situated but a short distance from the spot where the Fenians and her majesty's volunteers met when the former attempted the invasion of Canada in 1870 lives one of the most eccentric individuals in Victoria's domains, John Titus, familiarly called "Johnny."

Titus is 55 years of age. His father was an Englishman, his mother a French Canadian, and as a result "Johnny" learned both the French and English languages; otherwise his education is not much. At the age of 19 Titus went to California, where by frugality and hard work he accumulated considerable money.

After being absent 10 years he returned to his native place. During his absence his father had died and his mother, not knowing where a letter could reach her son, Mr. Titus did not learn of his father's death until he arrived home, when he found his mother very poor.

For some two years "Johnny" did odd jobs about wherever he found them to do; but during this time "Old Eccentric" got a firm grip on him. Titus first acquired the habit of repeating everything he said in both languages. He would say in English, in answer to a question: "Yes, its going to rain," and then repeat it, word for word, in French. The habit grew upon him, and, later, he would always, while carrying on conversation, start in French and repeat the whole in English, or vice-versa.

During the second winter after his return from California Titus, who was living alone with his mother, thought that by hanging up to the ceiling two cross-cut saws and by rapping on them with two hardwood sticks much could be produced in the way of music during his leisure moments. This he did, and finally added another piece to his "band of one" by persuading his mother to play a much sweeter-toned instrument - a piece of tissue paper placed on an ordinary comb. The old woman and her eccentric son became so infatuated with their music that they would play whole days together, as there were no neighbours within a mile to be disturbed by the musical discord.

Johnny's mother died after a little while, and he sold the place and went to St. Albans, Vt., where he married a comely girl who worked in a hotel there. Mr. and Mrs. Titus lived here two or three years until they thought they could put the California earnings to some use. The farm upon which they now are was bought and there Titus lives with his wife and three children - two girls and one boy. The eldest, a girl, teaches school in the neighbourhood.

On this farm Titus has built what he calls his "ark." This vehicle can be used in summer or winter. It is so constructed that it can be used as a wagon or a sleigh. It consists of an ancient quartet of wheels affixed to a pair of axles of remote date, an old pair of thills and a common box for a seat. This is his "buggy." To make a "cutter" of it, he has a pair of runners, made of hickory, which he attaches in the same way to the "skeleton," and by turning the latter wheels up, converts the combination into a veritable sleigh. This he uses for all his light work, such as going to the grist mill, the store, and visiting his relatives.

Another eccentricity of Titus is to wear a very heavy cap during the summer, no matter how warm it is. The reason he gives for this is: "Well, you see, this country around here is largely woodland, and in some of these heavy forests there are bears by the score. I got divorced from these 'bobtailers' about four years ago, and I'm not at all anxious for a reconcilliation. But to the cap. Well, our country roads must necessarily run through some of these forests, you know, and, to avoid bruin's roar and growl from reaching my sensitive hearing I wear this cap with earlappers. My experience of four years ago has taught me to avoid bears. I have also learned that if I should meet Mr. Grizzly I must not seek an introduction, nor try to flirt with Mrs. Grizzly, but walk right on, as though I could eat half a dozen bears before breakfast. So you see by keeping the holes in the sides of my head stopped up, I don't hear him at all, and if I run up against one of them A adopt my before-metioned method, with a possible longing to get home."

It would seem that Mr. Titus employs the same logic as does the ostrich, which hides its head in the sand when the hunter comes.

A pretty good story is told about "Johnny" by one of his neighbours, which is undoubtedly true. Titus had always been afraid of water; so much so, indeed, that he could not, until last summer, be enticed to step into an ordinary rowboat. On this occasion, however, he had firmly made up his mind to stop the ridicule to which he had been subjected by the boys. The day was a beautiful one; the old pond near his farm was as smooth as a mirror, save the little ripples caused by an occasional shad who kept the flies off his premises.

Titus, having brought with him about 50 feet of rope, tied one end of it to the bow of a boat. Having done this, he looked around to see if any one was watching him. Satisfying himself that he was unobserved, he tied the other end to a white birch tree near the water's edge. He then took off his boots - not his stockings, however, for he never wore any - and after rolling up his pant-legs pushed the boat out and jumped in.

Standing up in the stern, with a braod smile on his face, and looking toward a boat occupied by two farmers, who were fishing 200 yards or so ahead, "Johnny" little thought how soon that smilr would vanish from his bewiskered countenance. In less time than it takes to relate it, the rope tightened; then came a thud; the boat stopped as if it had struck a rock, and poor Titus was causing huge waves to roll over the placid waters of the old pond. After sinking a couple of times, for the water was deep, he grasped the edge of the boat and was finally rescued by the fisherman, who had been called thither by his cried for help.

He is still prejudiced against water.

During a very heavy January snowstorm a year ago Titus drove his cattle to the pond to water. It took him nearly three hours to accomplish the task. On his return he found a huge snowdrift had accumulated in the vicinity of his barn, and conceiving the idea that his drove would be warmer housed in the snow than in his dilapidated old barn, he went to work making room for them. It took him but a short time to do this. He dug the snow out from the ground 10 feet up, making an apartment about 20X35, and drove his cattle into it. He placed straw on the ground for them and kept them there until about the end of February.

Astonishing as it may seem, all thrived in the "hole in the snow," and as he said, "There's where I'm going to winter my cattle and sheep after this. I was intending to put up a new barn this coming spring, as this one was built 40 years ago, and has not been kept in repair, but I don't think I will now. My sheep stood their new quarters in the snow better than the cattle did, I think, although the cows did not suffer at all, and, in fact, gave fully as much milk as last winter."

"How many cows and sheep have you?"

"Six cows and four sheep; but that's not all that lived in the snowbank, you know. Half a dozen turkeys and as many hens lived there too."

It was during this same winter that Mr. Titus made up his mind to visit his sister, who lives 50 miles away. So one morning he started, taking with him a pot of baked beans, which he always carries on these visits, and with his "ark" reached his destination at nightfall.

His visit was short, and usual, and at the end of two days "Johnny" started for home during a terrible snowstorm. His sister could not dissuade him. The snow had drifted and he travelled very slowly. At 5 o'clock in the evening he found himself facing a drift at least 25 feet high, which crossed the road at the edge of a thick woods. He halted; but not at all disconcerted, hurried to a farm house, borrowed a snow shovel, returned to his team, and shovelled a hole in the snowbank large enough for himself, horse and "ark," and, after getting hay from the farmer for his horse, slept there all night.

The farm house was 300 yards away. The reason he gave for not applying for lodging at the farmer's house, as told by himself in English, repeating every word in French, was: "I didn't want to travel this road over again when it wasn't necessary. My horse was tired, and I knew I could make him comfortable in the snow. As to myself, I ate my beans, wrapped myself up in my buffalo robes and slept like a bug in a rug. And then, again, I knew that the farmers would be out early in the morning with their ploughs, clearing the roads, and by getting an early start I could reach home in time to do the chores."

Their are many other pecularities which constitute the makeup of Titus. He has some other characteristics, that shine out through all his eccentricities as glorious as the noonday sun; characteristics that might well be emulated by each of us. Titus is a kind husband, a loving father and a faithful citizen.

The Rev. Joseph H. Titus, onetime resident of Pittsfield, 1915 graduate of Williams College and a member during World War I of Berkshire County's 301st Ambulance Co., has retired as rector of Grace Church, Queens, N.Y., after 33 years of service there and 40 years in the Episcopal priesthood.

Fr. Titus, now 70 and unmarried, moved to Pittsfield in 1911 when his father became associated with the Berkshire Life Insurance Co. which he served as treasurer until he died in 1928. Fr. Titus had completed his secondary education in Chicago and immediately entered Williams. After graduation he worked for the Berkshire Life until 1917 when he left to join the ambulance unit. He served ultimately as its first sergeant. In 1921, while studying for the priesthood at General Theological Seminary, he wrote a 69 page history of the unit.

He graduated from seminary in 1923, and served as assistant at St. John's Church, Waterbury, Conn., and St. Thomas Church in New York City and as rector of the Church of the Epiphany in New York before going to Grace Church in the Jamaica section of Queens Burough. At that time, the parish was composed mostly of wealthy residents of the area but they gradually moved further out in Long Island and at present 500 of the parish's 650 families are Negroes. Fr. Titus said he never gave a thought of taking a different parish, although he had received several invitations during his long service at Grace Church.

The Bee. Friday, October 25, 1929. p. 10.

SUMMIT, N. J. Oct. 25. Mrs. Laura M. Titus had a birthday nor long ago. She was 70. There were no presents for the frail little woman, but her tired old face, deeply seamed by hard work through 49 years of marriage, showed relief rather than disappointment.

For Mrs. Titus expected a present, a sharp and shiny thing symbolic of her place in that unhappy household. A few days previously, sha said, her son had reminded his father, James Titus, that "the old woman's gonta have a birthday pretty soon; maybe we oughta get her a present."

"Yeh," the husband laughed, "we'll get her an ax. Then she can chop more wood."

James Titus was a big man, and strong despite his 78 years. He weighed more than twice as much as Laura Titus, who is less than 5 feet tall and weighs only 90 pounds. Titus liked to drink, and most of his meager wages went that way.

They had lived on a farm for 30 years, and it was pretty hard going for both of them. Then they moved in to Summit, where Titus worked for an ice company until he got sick one day and lost his job. He was not a good husband, she said; he mistreated her cruelly. And he kept on drinking. If Laura didn't like it when he came home drunk, a clip with his big fist shut her up quick enough. Soon she learned to do her work in silence, and seemed to find solace in looking at two newspaper cartoons she had saved.

One depicted the evils of drunkenness. The other showed an old woman carrying a big load of wood.

The other night old Jim Titus lay on the living room floor in an alcoholic stupor. In the kitchen, puttering over the hot stove, Mrs. Titus kept mumbling to herself: "Shall I, or shan't -? Shall I or shan't I? Shall I or - ?

Outside the kitchen door was an ax. Not the new ax she had expected for her birthday, but a good enough one.

"I took it and sat for awhile looking at him," she said. "He was lyin' there, with two pillows under his head."

Then, the little woman declared, she swung as hard as she could. She swung again. Her husband was dead.

After she confessed, at the Union County Jail at Elizabeth, N. J., Mrs. Titus was charged with murder.

"I hope," she said. "that somebody will take care of my dog."

A Visit to the Oldest Cemetery In the Valley

Fronting on Brook street, near the corner of Franklin, is an acre of ground that ten or twelve years ago, was called God's acre from the fact that it was sacred to the memory of several of our departed citizens - the early pioneers of Titusville and their families - who lay buried there. Now it is most antbody's acre, being without a fence for the protection against vandals and other transgressors and bearing the most dismal aspect of neglect imaginable. Jonathan Titus, the first settler of this city, gave this piece of property over eighty years ago to the Oil Creek Congregation for a burying ground, and after that year by year the forefathers of this city and much of the surrounding country were laid to rest on this spot. It was then a pleasant place, shadowed by grand old oaks, some of which are still in existence, and the little old church of the Presbyterian society. Situated on a rise of earth at the roadside, and at the foot of a high hill, it commanded a view of the most picturesque description. There was the broad valley reaching to the high hills on the south, the view unobstructed by urban scenes, and a vast level area extending north and south for several miles. Here and there a farm house dotted the landscape, and the general aspect of the country was wild and beautiful. The grave yard was a hallowed acre, a place of repose, awakening and remembrances, and withal an ornement in the little hamlet. A neat fence enclosed the ground, and white marble grave stones, green walks and shrubbery indicated its character as a cemetery, Should one have enough curiosity to visit this spot to-day he would see it wholly neglected, with traces of desolation and decay on every hand, Time has done much toward destroying the memories of the past, and vandals have done more. All sorts of rubbish are scattered about the graves. There are two or three mounds preserved in their original shape, and those are without headstones. Half of the graves are unknown, some sunken and full of water, and others overgrown with brambles.

Eliot, Oct. 27. - Leroy Titus, 38, Daniels Street, Portsmouth, N.H. general helper at the Kittery Navy Yard, was killed instantly late today when his four-door sedan crashed into a tree on the Beech Road and was demolished.

His death, which brings the 1950 motor fatality toll to 120, was due to mulpiple fractures.

State troopers Sherman Clark, Eliot. and Roger Farris, Kittery, said the accident occured just after Titus had crossed a small wooden bridge over the Boston & Maine Railroad tracks.

Losing control of the car as it came up the steep incline to the bridge, Titus was headed for a telephone pole, but swung to one side a bit and the machine struck the tree head-on.

The impact, the officers said, snapped off the steering wheel, which was found on the back seat.

Titus, who was unmarried, was a native of Kittery, the son of Mrs. Mabel Titus, 125 State Road, and the late Harry K. Titus, and had of late been making his home with a sister, Miss Doris Titus, at Portsmouth.

Besides his mother at Portsmouth, he leaves another sister, Mrs Gertrude Parker, 125 State Road, Kittery, and a brother, Kenneth, Sterling Road, Kittery.

The Ogden Standard. Tuesday Evening, July 25, 1905. p. 1.

Pittsburg, July 25. - Two dead, two fatally burned and three others seriously injured is the result of an explosion of a gasoline stove early today at the home of Levi Titus, a kosher butcher, No. 25, Wood Alley, Braddock, Pa.

The dead are:

Harry Titus and Meyer Titus, aged 7 year. (twins)

Fatally burned:

Mrs Sarah Titus, the mother.

Elsie Titus, aged 3 years.

Seriously burned"

Levi Titus, the father.

Goldie Titus, aged 18.

Ray Titus, aged 18.

The explosion was caused by the overturning of a gasoline stove on which Mrs. Titus was preparing breakfast. The burning fluid was scattered over the room, enveloping Mrs. Titus and igniting a five-gallon can of oil, standing on the rear porch, near the door.

A second explosion followed, and in a few moments the entire house was in flames. Neighbours made strenuous efforts to reach the five children, who were asleep on the floor, but, as the flames had already spread to the stairway, nothing could be accomplished until the arrival of the firemen with ladders. The father was the first one to scale the ladder and enter the children's room where smoke was issuing from the windows. Feeling his way to the bed, he grasped the twins and carried them to the window. He handed the children to the fireman on the ladder, who found that they were both dead, having been suffocated. The father then went back and rescued the other three children and, as he assisted the last one to the window, he fell to the floor, overcome by the smoke. He was taken out unconscious by the firemen, who also rescued Mrs. Titus after she had been terribly burned. It is thought her injuries will prove fatal. The three-year-old daughter was so badly burned that her recovery is doubtful. The others, although seriously burned, will recover.

The house, a frame building, and its contents were damaged to the extent of $2,000.

Arthur, Ill. - Two boys who beat and shot a 57-year-old country school teacher in revenge for a spanking given them by her husband, face a possible charge of attempted murder today.

The boys Lloyd Titus, 16, and Glen Phillips, 11, are held in the Sullivan county jail. State's Attorney Joseph C. Munch said no charge had been placed against them immediately, but he was holding them for attempted murder.

Sheriff Glen W. Braden said the boys, in statements, related that Titus shot Mrs. Nina Donahoo at the White school west of here yesterday. Mrs. Donahoo, shot in the groin, was in a hospital suffering from shock and loss of blood.

Braden said the boys, pupils at the nearby Maple Grove school where Mrs. Donahoo's husband, George W. is also a teacher, went to the White school yesterday planning to steal her automobile. On Monday, Braden said Donahoo had spanked the boys as punishment for passing a note in school.

"They thought stealing Mrs. Donahoo's car would be a way of getting even with their teacher for the paddling," Braden said.

The sheriff said Titus struck Mrs. Donahoo on the head with the pistol and grabbed her purse as she fell. When they fled she followed them out of the school building. As she attempted to retrieve her purse, she was shot.

After the shooting the boys fled across fields and hid under a railroad bridge more than a mile from the White school. They were found by sheriff's deputies an hour later and surrendered after a deputy fired one shot.

This is a picture of Miss Maude A. Titus, aged 16, of Newark, N. J., the youngest heroine in America to receive the Carnegie award and who has just been rewarded a second time for the same act of bravery.

The act of heroism which brought these recognitions to Miss Titus was this: On July 30, 1904, she was boating with several friends on Casco bay, near Yarmouth, Me. A storm arose and the yawl they occupied was upset, half a mile from shore. Miss Titus could swim, but her companion, Miss Laura V. Reifsnyder, sank like a stone. Miss Titus dived, brought the struggling form to the surface and succeeded in keeping both of them above the water for a quarter of an hour until help came from the shore.

Two weeks after the medal was awarded Miss Titus last fall, he father, Dr. William Titus, died, leaving a small fortune to his family of eight.

Miss Reifsnyder, the young lady rescued, wrote the commission, stating that Miss Titus was anxious to obtain an education, but would be unable to do so on account of lack of funds.

The commission decided to grant her $2,500. Five hundred dollars of this is to be paid upon her entrance to a school, $500 annually in advance for three years, and $500 at her graduation. This is the largest cash award yet made, the largest previously being $1,000.

Orvin Titus of Janesville, Wis., who perpetuates the name of Jonathan Titus, the founder of Titusville, stopped at The Herald office yesterday to obtain information concerning the city's history.

Mr. Titus, who was returning home from the National Grange Convention at Atlantic City, N. J., said he was particularly interested in Alanson Titus who he believed migrated from this area to Wisconsin the 1850s and settled in Kinosha Vounty.

He said that Alanson Titus' son, Isaac, is his great grandfather who settled in Rock County where Janesville is located. He said that Alanson's branch of the Titus family came to the Titusville area from Delaware County in New York, and originally migrated to this country from England.

Jonathan Titus came to Crawford County and founded Titusville from Frankstown, Blairs County, Pa., about 1796. When Mr. Titus planned the village he designed to name it Edinburg, in honor of the city from which his mother-in-law had emigrated to this country. However, for many years the place was known simply as "Titus's," to which the title "Titusville" succeeded.

Jonathan Titus died Feb. 2, 1857, leaving five children: Susan, wife of Joseph L. Chase; Sarah, wife of Edward H. Chase; Lavinia, wife of Parker McDowell of Franklin; Olevia, wife of John Moore of Pittsburgh; and Maxwell.

Orvin Titus told the Herald yesterday he was not certain of the relationship between Jonathan and Alanson, who left this area about the time that Jonathan died.

MARION, Ind. (AP) - Jean Ramey, 74, and Philip Titus, 82, dated when she was a teen-ager and he was in his mid-20s. But he went off to war, didn't say goodby and she figured that was the end of it.

More than 50 years later, the life-long Grant County residents were married on Saturday.

"She was 17 when we started going out," he said. "She was working at Roller's Hamburgers and we met there. I was 25. I just liked her, I guess."

After the war, however, each went on with their lives. Ramey married Harold McMullen in 1943. They had a son and a daughter. In 1949, she married George Ramey and added three stepdaughters to her family. They were married 37 years when he died in 1987.

Titus came home in 1946. In 1948, he married Helen and they had two sons. She died in 1995.

The couple got back together 18 months ago after Titus sent her flowers during a hospital stay.

"I was coming back into my room and there was this beautiful bouquet of flowers," she said. "I said, /someone likes me today.' I looked at the card and it said Phil. I thought it can't be. I couldn't believe it."

She had her son call the florist and found out that Titus had sent the flowers. Titus learned from his sister that Ramey was in the hospital.

"I still liked her." he said, grinning.

Hutchinson Daily News. Thursday Morning, May 15, 1890. p. 4.

A Decision Regarding the Rights of Illegitimate Children as Heirs - A Valuable Tract of Land Adjoining the City of Hutchinson Involved - An Opinion Which Will Attract Much Attention Among Attorneys.

From The Topeka Capital.

The supreme court handed down yesterday one of the most interesting decisions which has emanated from that court for many terms. It was the case of John Caldwell against D. B. Miller and L. B. Miller, brought up from the district court of Reno county. It is a very important case, not only because it involved the ownership of a large tract of land adjoining the townsite of Hutchinson, now worth an immense sum of money, but for the reason that there was a very fine law point - the rights of illegitimate children as heirs - to be passed upon. The litigation has been in progress for several years; the case has been before the supreme court for several months and the decision was awaited with interest. It will attract attention among the legal fraternity all over the country. The facts in the case as found by the trial court were: That on Jan. 1, 1809, Robert Titus was lawfully married at Sunbury, in Rutland Co., Vt., to Phoebe Thomas and in Oct., 1810, there was born as the issue of that marriage, a son, Alden Wheeler Titus, who was the only issue of that marriage; that after the birth of the son Titus abandoned his wife and son and went into the war of 1812, and never lived with them any more; that Titus went from the war to East Bloomfield, in Ontario county, in the state of New York, and on July 14, 1818, without having been divorced from Phoebe, married Miriam Lee, by whom he had five children thereafter born, viz: Benjamin, Betsey, Rachel, Delight and Lois; that said Titus thereafter, about the year 1832, removed from Ontario county, New York, to Lenox, Macomb county, Michigan.

It is also found that the defendant, Lois Miller, is the wife of the defendant, D. B. Miller, and is the youngest daughter of Robert Titus and Miram Lee; that Robert Titus, in the year 1850, came to live with D. B. Miller and Lois Miller, his wife, and continued to live with them from that date until his death in 1871; that Miller and his wife, Lois, and Robert Titus came to Reno county, Kansas, from Will county, Illinois, in the year 1871; that Titus, on July 10, 1871, made a pre-emption settlement on the land in controversy in this suit, viz: Northeast quarter, section 12, township 23, range 6 west, Reno county, Kansas, and on Sept. 8, 1871, died, not having completed his pre-emption as required by act of congress of March 3, 1844. Titus died intestate and utterly without any money or property whatsoever. Upon his death D. B. Miller was by the probate court of Reno county, appointed administrator of the deceased, and with his own money caused the pre-emption to be completed, paying the double minimum price for the land to the government, viz: $400.

This was done in the year 1871. On the completing of the pre-emption by Miller, as administrator, a patent for the land was issued by the United States, under, and in accordance with the section 2269, revised statues (sic) of the United States. That Robert Titus died in Reno county, Kansas, intestate, Sept. 8, 1871; that Miram Lee died intestate in the year 1858; that his wife, Phoebe Thomas, died intestate in Rutland county, Vermont, in the year 1860; that Alden W. Titus, son of Robert and Phoebe Titus, died in Charleston, Mass., in the year A.D. 1876. intestate, leaving heirs; that defendant, D. B. Miller, has purchased from the heirs of Alden W. Titus, and, under proper conveyance from them. is owner of all the rights, title and interest in the land which insured to the Alden W. Titus benefit as the heir of Robert Titus under said patent; that Plaintiff Caldwell has conveyances from the following aforesaid children of Robert Titus and Miram Lee, viz: Delight, intermarried with Caldwell, and Rachel, intermarried with Caldwell, conveying to him whatever title they had in the land in controversy; that said children of Robert Titus and Miram Lee were notoriously recognized by Robert Titus as his own, and no question was ever raised as to their legitimacy until in this suit.

The pivotal question in this case is the interpretation of section 2,269, revised statutes of the United States, 1878. The plaintiff contends that the words in this section, "the heirs of the deceased preemptor," include legitimate and illegitimate children if the illegitimate were generally notoriously recognized by the father in his lifetime as his own. The defendants claimed that the word "heirs" must be determined by the common law of England.

The supreme court decides in favor of the illegitimate heirs and holds that they are entitled to the property. It says in the opinion, which is written by Chief Justice Horton that:

"When a party, entitled to the benefits of the pre-emption laws of the United States, makes a pre-emption filing in the state, but dies before consumating his claim and his administrator files the necessary papers to complete the same, and upon payment for the land obtained from the United States a patent granting the land unto the "heirs of the deceased pre emptor." the word heirs in the patent is to be construed with reference to the laws of this state, and whoever, under the laws of this state, would have inherited from the deceased pre-emptor, are the persons to whose benefit the land granted by the the patent inures.

"Under the statutes of Kansas illegitimate children inherit from the father, the same as the legitimate children. when such illegitimate children have been generally and notoriously recognized by him as his own.

On July 10, 1871, T. made a pre-emption settlement upon a quarter section of land in Reno county; he died before consumating his claim to the pre-emption; the administrator of the estate completed pre-emption and on the 20th of April. 1878, obtained a patent from the United States to the land; the patent granted "unto the said heirs of T., deceased, (the dead pre-emptor) and to their heirs," the tract pre-empted; T., at the time of his death, had living a legitimate child and also illegitimate children, whom he had generally and notoriously recognized as his own. Held, that the word (heirs" in the patent included the illegitimate children as well as the legitimate child.

Charles A. Collins, chief of Middlesex county detectives, announced that Mrs. Titus had confessed. The child, she was quoted as having said, was illegitimate, born to her during an estrangement from her husband.

Suspicious neighbours started police on a quest for the baby late last week. On Tuesday, the woman, a factory worker, was questioned. First, she said she had left the child with friends. Then she said she had taken it to the home of friends in Passaican, N.J., where it died and had been buried in the cemetery. A check didproved the story.

Mrs. Titus was requestioned after two boys playing near a mill pond, 500 feet beyond the Raritan, had reported finding the baby's clothing.

Collins quoted the woman as having said she took the child to the pond the night of March 24. She undressed it and strewed its clothes in the shrubbery. She then carried the baby in her arms to the south side of the river and dropped it over the edge of the bridge.

The body has not been recovered.

Ellsworth County Coroner Dan Urbanek ruled the death suicide.

Urbanek concluded that Titus had taken the .22 rifle to bed with him and apparently had put the barrel in his mouth and pulled the trigger.

The bullet lodged in the head, Urbanek said, and Titus died approximately a half hour after the shot.

Titus was found by a neighbour who often called because of Titus's ill health, Urbanek said. The father, Chester Titus, was visiting in Eskridge at the time.

Titus was born May 12, 1902 in Windorn and lived in Langley the past eight years. He never married.

Survivors are his father; his mother, Mrs. Chester Titus, St. Francis, and a brother, Durward, Virgil.

Idaho Sunday Journal. Sunday, October 24, 1954. p. 9

Mrs. Jeneath Titus, 327 South Hayes, has filed a $50,000 damage suit against R. C. Hillman, operator of the Solo Cigar store, 252 East center, in connection with the death of her husband.

Mrs. Titus charged in her District Court complaint that her husband, William H. Titus, 54, a machinist, died March 21, 1953, within an hour after suffering a severe beating at 4 p.m. in the Solo Cigar.

The complaint said further that Vern Burke, a customer in the Solo when Titus went there, administered the beating, but Frank B. Larson, the store manager, failed to evict Burke and neglected to provide police protection although "he had been requested to take steps to avoid trouble."

Hillman was charged by Mrs. Titus with failing to maintain the Solo with reasonable precautions for protecting his customers since the merchandise sold there included alcoholic beverages.

It was charged that Titus suffered a cerebral hemorrhage from violent blows about the face and head.


The Eau Claire Leader. Tuesday, April 7, 1914. p. 1.

DULUTH, Minn. April 6. - Although the mystery which shrouds the death of the late John McAlpine, wealthy Duluth lumberman, who was found shot through the head in the besement of his East end home on the morning of Aug. 15, 1913, is yet unsolved, facts and circumstances have come to light within the last few days which are claimed by some to support the theory that the well known lumberman was not murdered but came to his death by his own hand.

A motive for suicide is said to have been supplied through the fact that at the time of his death he was quite deeply involved financially, that claims aggregating between $200,000 and $300,000 had piled up against him, as a result of various deals, and that he was engaged at the time in a controversy in the courts of California over the title to timber lamds estimated to be worth more that $250,000.

The suicide theory is inclined to by Mrs. Mattie B. Titus, widow of W. M. Titus, a former business associate, who has been in the city for the last few days gathering data and information to be used in a lawsuit, which she is bringing in the courts of California against the McAlpine estate. Mrs. Titus and Mrs. Sarah McAlpine, widow of John McAlpine, are sisters. Mrs. Titus is suing the McAlpine estate as administratix of her husband's estate.

In the pending litigation it is claimed that Titus purchased a half interest in a large tract of land and had the property recorded in McAlpine's name with the understanding that he, Titus, was to receive a title to one-half of McAlpine's interest of one-fourth of the entire tract, upon payment to McAlpine of $78.000. Pursuant to this agreement a contract for a deed was entered into between the two men.

While Mr. and Mrs. Titus were on their way to San Francisco during the month of October, 1911, for the purpose of raising the $78,000 required, Titus died.

It is understood that the defense to the suit will be that Titus released McAlpine from the contract for deed. According to Mrs. Titus the purported release will be contested as a forgery.
