|Death: ||Apr. 22, 1835|
Martha Mary Titus was the daughter of Charles Titus (1760-1847) and Anna Mott b. 1760. She married John W. Bedell.
Here is an excerpt from " Episodes from a Hudson River Town, New Baltimore NY."
Charles (Titus) built a house and, over the years, constructed a sawmill, a store (possibly the first in the Medway area), an ashery, and a blacksmith shop. He also became a justice of the peace for the town of New Baltimore. Titus owned at least one trading vessel, shipping and receiving a multitude of products from the landing at Coxsackie.
In May of 1807, Charles is recorded as receiving an annual license from the Coxsackie Comm. of Excise to operate a public inn or tavern, location unknown. He also may have had a store at Coxsackie but certainly onwed the dockage there where he eventuallky had a brickyard. Charles and his first wife, Anna Mott, had one child, Martha, who married John W. Bedell, who became a partner and successor to his father-in-law.......
By the time the 1837 New Baltimore tax assessment roll was compiled, Charles held $9,000 worth of real and personal property, almost double the valuation of the next wealthiest person, Teunis P. Van Slyke.
