Hi Eric
I answered your line on Titus/Pollie and then read this one. We are cousins our grandfathers were brothers Frank being the oldest and then Bryan Oren born in 1898. They're father James Robert was born in NY in 1852 and moved with his folks including a few of his uncles and grandparents in the mid to late 1850s to Alamo,MI. Oren was the father of James R. and he was born in western NY Leroy I think in 1814 he was married in Sterling,NY in Sept.6,1840 to Phoebe Vasti Lawrence born in Canada in 1818. They had 7 children James being the 6th. And this is where I'm caught Titus (Orens dad) unknown birth or death dates I have varying states of his birth New Hampshire or Vermont. And family legend says he died on the way to Alamo,MI near Hillsdale??? and no one on my side knows where he might be buried any clues on yours?? Would enjoy hearing from you and having someone to help unravel the puzzle. And will take help from anyone in solving Titus's birthplace etc.
