I am trying to locate the family of Charles Titcomb.

He was born about 24 July 1803 in Newburyport, Mass. He arrived on
Captain Bligh's ship and got off in Lahaina Maui between 1803 - 1844.
He later settled in Hawaii and died in about 1883.

Charles Titcomb undertook several business ventures in Hawaii such as starting
a silk industry, coffee, sugar and introduced the Lahaina variety of sugar
cane in the islands. He was the one of the first to undertake the transfer from
coffee to sugar and was one of the first foreigners given the priviledge
to purchase real estate in fee simple in Hawaii.

Anyone with any information that would help me find the family of Charles
Titcomb is greatly appreciated.
