Following info from 1930 Totowa, Passaic, NJ
Roll 1382, Enumeration District 177, Image 2650:
TITUS, Peter R. age 52 b. NJ Father & Mother b. NJ
Mary, wife age 48 b. NJ, Father b. Eng, Mother b. NY
Vivian,dau.age 24 b. NJ
Eileen,dau. age 7 b. NJ
Peter's occupation U.S. Customs, Veteran of WWI
1910 Manchester Twp., Passaic, NJ
Serial T624, Roll 907, Part 2, Page 51B
TITUS, Peter R.
Mary E., wife
*Mary V., dau.
*Since Mary V. doesn't appear on the 1930 census, she may have married or died.
Peter's occupation: Weigher, Port of New York.
Since Peter was born 1877/78, he could very well have been in the Spanish-American War (1898). He would have been 20 years old.
You can get copies of above censuses from the Family Library at the Latter Day Saints (the Mormons) for a nominal fee. You should also obtain copies of possible pension records, since he was in both wars.
If you have the letter sent to Peter by the president, you should contact a professional to preserve it. DON'T make copies from a copying machine. The light will destroy the integrity of the letter and darken it. (Speaking from experience.)
