    • Page 165 & 166, HISTORY OF LONG ISLAND.
      S. Townsend Titus was born in Glencove, Long Island, on the 11th of June. 1854, and after completing his studies in the public schools of his native village he became a member of the first class to enter Swarthmore College, where he continued his studies for two years. After this he was associated with his father in the conducting of the
      homestead farm until 1880, when he engaged in the livery business in Glencove and continued in this line of enterprise until 1890, at which time he became associated with R. Frank Bowne, under the firm name of Titus & Bowne, and established the present business undertaking, which has grown to be one of wide scope and importance in its line, involving the handling of lumber, coal and building material of all kinds. The enterprise has been managed with marked ability and judgment and the firm has a high standing in the business community. Mr. Titus has ever pursued a straightforward course, and the high principles by which he is animated have been manifested in all the relations of life, naturally resulting in his retaining the high regard of all with whom he comes in contact. It has been truly said of him that, "he is public spirited and in favor of everything which will promote the welfare of his fellow citizens, and his influence is always directed toward this end." Though a zealous supporter of the principles and policies of the Republican party, he has never had any inclination for public office.

      In the village of Jamaica, on the 15th of November, 1876, was solemnized the marriage of Mr. Titus to Miss Julia J. Jackson, who was born there, receiving her education in the schools of the place and becoming a woman of gracious refinement. Her father, Timothy T. Jackson, was born in Flushing, and was a member of one of the old families of the Island. Mr. and Mrs., Titus are the parents of three children, namely: William W., Louis H. and Ethalinda J.
