I can trace my family tree to
Charles R. Titus, early 1800s Arkansas,
Francis M Titus, 1855,
James W Titus, Cleburne, Tx (Great-Gradfather)

Family DNA says I, like you, go back to Titus Syrach De Vries - Syrach Titus.

Do you have the family tree that could cover the 1650-1850 gap?

Jannetje Teunis has a New York Dutch Reform Church [aka New Amsterdam DRC] baptism record of 22 Dec 1641 as c/o Theunis Nyssen. Theunis Nysse & Femmetje Jans [aka Phoebe Sales] were md. same church 2/11/1640. Jannetje Teunis & Titus Sirachs baptized a child "Sjak" on 12/28/1679 in Flatbush DRC in the same year that a Jannetje Teunis & Jan Hanz Bergen baptized son Teunis on 4/20/1679. These two Jannetje's get intermingled, merged, combined and some online family trees show 29-35 children to each couple & the same children!! Jannetje Teunis w/o Jan Hans Bergen is the daughter of Teunis Coevert [& various spellings] who immigrated in 1651 and the baptism records of children begin after 1651. One baptism record of c/o Jan Hansz Bergen & Jannetje Tunis has "of Jamaica" after her name, probably the area of Brooklyn called that and Titus & Jannetje are of Flatbush area. Also, the child Titus of Jannetje Teunis & Titus bapt 3/19/1682 has Jannetje & Cornelis "Tune" [sic] as sponsors, this would be maternal grandmother & uncle. Jannetje & Titus' daughter Tryntjen md. Johannes Van Eckelen and the sponsors for those children having baptism records are maternal grandmother [Jannetje] & the maternal aunts or uncles. Likewise for the baptisms of the children Jan Bergen & Jannetje Teunis are her parents & relatives Lucas & Sara Teunis. The "Register in Alphabetical Order of the Early Settlers of Kings County, Long Island, New York by Teunis G. Bergen has been digitized and readable by "google search". A careful reader will note "supposed" and "some Jannetje Teunis married. . ." which implies to me at least that he was not certain.
I am hopeful someone will believe me.

My mother wa a Titus. I don't know if it is one of the branches you are investigating. The towns of Titusville Pennsylvania, and Titusville Florida were founded by two brothers in the ancestral line. I have some information. The name Daniel rang a bell for me. I guess it is tile to go back and look at my files. I haven't done that for a few years
