As part of our Sesquicentennial Celebration, the 150th committee wants to recognize early pioneers (prior to 1900) and their descendants during the Community Picnic on March 26. Committee members Ben Warren & Polly Schuster have been tasked with finding descendants.
Wanted: Descendants of Titusville Pioneers
If your ancestor lived in the Titusville area (Titusville, Mims, Scottsmoor, etc) prior to 1900, the Titusville 150th Anniversary Committee wants you.
We are collecting names of direct descendants still in the area. The descendants and pioneers will be recognized at the Community Picnic on March 26.
If you qualify, please send an email with your ancestor's name, the year they arrived in the Titusville area, your relationship, your name and contact information including email. If you know their occupation or contribution, you may include that if you wish
