    New York newspapers https://fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html

    Pop "titus webb" in Search and check box is set to "the exact phrase" (not Boolean). Should return 11 hits. A number relate to searching for "rellies &c" in 1883 re. Titus' estate. Surnames mentioned include Barry, Hyrons, Webb.
    I think all 11 relate to your Titus?

    Titus 52 occupation crockery? and Catherine 46 are on the 1850 USA census in New York and with them is an Elijah Webb age 13 born England. Relationships aren't given but if this is their son then their marriage could have been in England or Scotland. Or Elijah may be a son from a first marriage for Titus.
