Timothy Titus
Timothy Titus was born September 13, 1826 in Clinton County, Ohio on the Clarksville and Cuba road not far from Villars Chapel as it is now. When a young man he learned the blacksmith trade and when in those days he sought the nuptial bower and was married to Miss Catharine Hall September 7, 1848. He with his happy wife tailed [sic] on for years until the breaking out of the rebellion found them with a family of eight small children but with his noble spirit for his country he enlisted in the seventy-ninth Regiment O. V. I. under General Sherman for about two and one-half years after which he was honorably discharged. They lived to celebrate their sixty-second wedding anniversary and on the 6th of May 1911 the mother passed away, and on March 22, 1912 the father passed on to the other shore. To this union were born 12 children eight of whom survive. Also there are 31 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren.
Early in life he became a member of the Free Will Baptist church but since 1887 had been connected with the M. E. church. The influence of his earnest Christian life has been of untold benefit to all his loved ones and all who knew will always remember him for his goodness and kindness which was a result of having lived close to his Savior. The sufferings of the latter months of his life were borne with great fortitude.
