People with the surname of Tittemore, Tittimore, Tetemore and even Littemore, are probably all in the same family. I don't have a direct line, but I do have a lot of Tittemore names in my database, because there is one small connection. My direct ancestor, James Gibbins Pell's daughter Mary Elizabeth Pell married Herbert Eugene Tittemore. Mary and Herbert left Quebec, Canada and settled in California.That is perhaps what Donna saw before she wrote me a letter, part is below. And, along with the message, she sent me a great family photo, with no names. It is my hope somebody will eventually find their way to this post and the photo and recognize somebody. Below is a report on the individuals I have in my tree. Thank you Donna for writing and sharing your photo, I can't wait for the time when I can tell you who these people are.
"Hello - I found your “Roots Web” post about the Tittemore family. I have been researching information on this family today, as it is possible that I have a family portrait of “Tittemores”. The portrait was taken circa 1892 - 1900 in Sacramento, California by Asher Photography. There is a rather “blurred” name in the photograph (upper right corner) that appears to be maybe “Tittemore”. It is the only thing I have to go on as to the people in the photograph.
The Tittemore family is not related to me. I found the old photograph in the laundry room of my mother in law (Mrs Warner) who passed at age 90 in 1995. Because of it’s age, I have stored it, thinking the people might be related to my husband’s family.
My research so far finds - There is a Tittimore buried in the Sacramento City Cemetery. There is an article in the Woodland Daily Democrat dated Feb 1902 regarding the estate of one T W Tittimore, executor H E Tittimore. Woodland is about 20 minutes from Sacramento.
Anyway.. If you are interested, I have attached a jpeg of the photograph if you would like to see it. Perhaps the information about the Tittemore estate in Woodland will be of help to you.
Good Luck in your research.. "
