The following data was extracted from "The Titus, Sadorus and Jordan
Families in America," by Allison Jordan McNay, and obtained on microfiche
from the Genealogical Department of the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints. Fiche # 6046739. Also from data compiled by William B.
Moore of Cochranton, PA.

I presume that you already have most of it. Notice that I have Peter Titus
who m. Mary Williams as the son of John, not the son of the original
Daniel. I would like your comment. Also I would appreciate having the
details on your aunts and uncle, etc., and other descendants of the Stearns
family to bring at least that portion up to date.

I can't help but think that there might be some relationship between this
Daniel Titus and the family of Titus Syrach de Vries. What do you think?
