Titus Family of NJ, PA & Ohio
Looking to contact others interested in the African American Titus family which appears to have roots in colonial New Jersey, Pennsylvania and finally Ohio.
James B. Titus, born circa 1825 in Princeton, Mercer, NJ, was a gold refiner, and apparently worked at his trade in NY for many years. James B. died in Princeton in 1886. His son George lived in Stroudsburg, Pa as early as 1891, but was in Burlington, NJ by 1900 and Stark Co., Ohio by 1910.
I am having a difficult time locating marriage records or any other records that would identify the women who married into the Titus line. The Titus men and wives(and their ancestors) I am researching are:
James B. Titus b. 1891, Stroudsburg, Pa & wife Reba (maybe West)d. in Cuyahoga Co., Ohio in 1979. Reba pob possibly born in WV.
George P. Titus b. 1864 in Mercer Co., New Jersey, & wife Laura, born in Pennslyvania circa 1863.
James B. Titus b. 1825 in Huntington Co. NJ area married Sarah born in Pa circa 1830.
Anyone working on this line, or familiar with these people?
