The ferry was used by the original packers carrying supplies along the Kelsey Trail. It wandered west to east from the coast going over the Marble Mountains to Scott Valley. Numerous branches of the Kelsey Trail met at Ferry Point. One of the branches led directly to Happy Camp and was its main supply source prior to the Waldo Trail.\parIn 1857 the buildings and ferry were sold by Richard Humphreys (founder of Crescent City) to James Camp and John Titus.\par Later he moved to Happy Camp and with partners Ince and Jim Camp mined at Classic Hill on Indian Creek. There they mined 300 pounds from one pocket ($7,600). Many times for years people mentioned that they loaded three mules to pack their gold to Oregon. (ibid "We Will Call This Happy Camp" by Hollis R. Anderson, page 38)\par \par He went into the store business with Camp in the old brick building which is still in use in Happy Camp.\par \par In 1891 he left Happy Camp and went to the Bay Area and lived there until his death in April of 1906.\par \par 1890 - John Titus sold his interests to James Camp and moved to Alameda, Fruitvale District, California. [from Happy Camp Timeline}\par \par 1900 He lived on Blossom Street in Alameda.\par \par Interesting note in reviewing the census page, Martin Cuddihy also lived on Blossom Street.}\par \par ______________________________________________\par \par \par PIONEER LEAVES LARGE ESTATE TO CHILDREN BORNE HIM BY SISKIYOU INDIAN WIFE.\par \par \par A Primitive in the Sierra Reveals Devotion to HIS sense of Paternal Duty.\par \par By the Terms of the will of John Titus, pioneer who died last week, his estate valued at over $100,000, is to be divided between seven children born to him by his Indian wife of Siskiyou County. The filing of the Will of John Titus of Happy Gamp brings to light a romance of early days. A pretty romance from the days of the Argonauts in California.\par \par A romance that would have delighted Bret Harte was laid bare yesterday when the will of John A Titus a pioneer of Slsklyou County was filed for probate at the County Clerk's office. An estate valued at over $100,000 is to be divided between seven children that were born to him by an Indian woman of Sisklyou County whom he wedded, as Kipling says, "without benefit of the clergy."\par \par The children who will share the fruits of his frugality are:\par \par John Titus Jr.\par Mrs. Florence Blockwell,\par Mrs. Lizzie Humphreys, \par Mrs. Maggie Davidson,\par Stella Tltus (Whitaker), \par Flora Aura Titus, and\par Mrs lda Holby.\par \par Mrs Holby lives at 392 Twenty-fifth Street in this city.\par John Titus died at Frultvale last Wednesday. He left Happy Camp, Siskiyou County, where he reared his family and where he amassed his little fortune, about fifteen years ago, leaving his Indian wife comfortably provided for. He invested in real estate here and in Alameda County. The romance goes back into the 1850's, when Californla was in the rough. Titus joined in the rush of the Argonauts across the plains. There was the image of a fair-haired glrl in New York to spur hlm on. He had sworn that he would go back with a fortune and marry her. He arrived in San Francisco in the mad days, when men were daily rushing to new camps and strikes. He caught the fever and went into the mountains of Siskiyou with a crowd of hardy adventurers. \par \par SETTLES IN HAPPY CAMP \par \par But there was a streak of cautiousness in his makeup . He was worklng for that girl in New York. While the others rushed pell-mell into the mountains, he stayed at the town that sprang up and opened a little store. They called the place Happy Camp. Always thinking of that girl in New York, he stuck to hls work and the money began to accumulate rapidly. He was thinking that he might be able to send for her soon. But a letter came to Titus, a letter that had been many weary months delayed in the rough trip around the Horn. It was very brief. It informed him that the girl had grown tired of waiting. John Titus was left in the condition of the primitive man who has been cast off from his tribe. He was all alone in Happy Camp. He brooded over his troubles through the winter. Then the spring came and the azaleas bloomed in the canyons. The loneliness of John Titus was lost in a new longing, whlch was that of the first man, the desire for companionship. It was the time of the year when the Sierra's wore their brightest green and a pair of robins built their nest in the eaves of John Titus' cabin when some Indians from a neighboring tribe came to Happy Camp. Among them was a soft-eyed, pretty girl who walked with the tread of a wood nymph.\par \par A PRIMITIVE MARRIAGE \par \par She looked at John Titus with adoration in her glance. He looked at her and it was as to the days before they knew what conventions meant. It was love at first sight. The unrestrained natural love of the primitive man and woman, for the lofty peaks of the Sierra shut them off from everything that was artificial. She came to his cabin after \par the grave chiefs in council had permitted and became his wife by the laws of those early days, the days of big men and big deeds. John Titus forgot the girl in New York and all that lay beyond the wall of mountains. Children came to the pair, the first a boy who is now a stalwart man and is a prosperous rancher of Siskiyou County. Then came all girls. John Titus began to feel that contentment whlch comes those who have done their share of daily work in the world and have no fear that poverty will make the long drawn end painful. Children grew up and 3 of them married. Maggie married a dentist in Oakland, lda married a mechanic of San Francisco. They were pretty girls all of them with just a suggestion of the mother's race in the high cheek bones. His family, having grown up and knowing that they were well provided for, John Titus felt the restlessness of Ulysses. He wanted to see what bad been done on the other side of the world since he had gone into exile. The call of his own kind lured him and he could not resist it. He left the woman who had been faithful to him in loneliness, in happiness and in sorrow. But he left her well provided for and he never forgot his duty to his children. He was proud of them. The son was a man to delight any father and the daughters were women that any natural father would love. When he got down to the bay, John Titus tried to get in touch again with the things he had forsaken. He invested his little savings in property in this city and in Alameda County, and settled down to wait the end. Two years ago he was seized with the fear that someone might try to deprive his children of the fruits of his Industry and he laboriously wrote a will leaving them all he had. He was accidentally asphyxiated last Wednesday at his home in Frultvale. They buried him, his children did and for a while it seemed that his story would be buried with him. But out at the Clerk's office, where so many romances and life tragedies are laid bare at the end, the story of John Titus came to 'light' when the will was filed. He named his daughter, Mrs. Maggie Davidson of Oakland, as chlef executrix, to act with James Camp an old comrade of the Happy Camp days. Camp has decllned to act. E. J. Talbott is attorney for the children. All of the children loved their father dearly, Mrs. Holby said yesterday. He was so good to us all. He was the best man in all the world. Were not the years that John Tltus spent in Happy Camp well spent? \par \par PIONEER WHOSE WILL REVEALS ROMANCE AND DAUGHTERS BY HIS INDIAN WIFE SHARE FORTUNE.\par \par }}

\cf1 JOHN WARNER, son of Andrew Warner, died in Middletown, Conn., June 24, 1700. The date and place of his birth are unknown, but he was probably born, in England, before the removal of the family to America.\cf0 \par
\cf1 According to the records of Connecticut, October 8, 1663, he was to be made a freeman on the following day. There is no record of his early life in America, but he settled early in Middletown, Conn. His name is one of those on a granite and bronze memorial unveiled in 1905, to Middletown's "Founders, Fathers, and Patriots", as one of the founders of the period, from 1650, to 1680. With his wife, and his brothers, Robert and Andrew, and their wives, he signed the covenant of the Middletown Church, Nov. 4, 1668, the date of the beginning of the church records.\cf0 \par
\cf1 The list of proprietors of Middletown, March 22, 1670, gives John Warner with a valuation of 96 Pounds, slightly larger than that of his two brothers of the same town. His lot was on the west bank of the Connecticut River, next south of Thomas Ranney's and the middle one of five lots between the roads. He seems to have spent the remainder of his life as a farmer there. \cf0 \par
\cf1 His will, made March 19, 1700, mentions the following eldest son, John: John North, guardian to his two children, by Mary Warner. Anna and Mary North. Distribution of the property was made to John Warner, the eldest son, Jonathan Warner, Hannah Warner, Elizabeth Warner, John North's children by his first wife, and to Ebenezer Ranney in right of his wife.\cf0 \par
\cf1 Married ANNA [Surname?}. Her name is given as Anna Norton in Nash's "Fifty Puritan Settlers", p. 62, but this may be an error, for John Warner, the early settler of Farmington, married Anna Norton. \cf0 \par
\cf1 The Middletown Church records have the following entry: "May 23, 1669, Goodman John Warner & his yoke fellow Anna Warner & the wife of David Sage in full communion ... May 30 1669 (baptized) child of Brother Warner; viz Hannah, John, Jonathan, Mary, Elizabeth, our sister Sage herself likewise and her 3 children namely, David, John, Elizabeth, in y seale". John Warner Sen'r and Anna Warner Sen'r were among the signers of the covenant at the Middle town Church, "the 4th of the 9th mo 1668".\cf0 \par
\cf1 CHILDREN (order is not known, but is inferred from records of their baptisms in Middletown, in 1669).\cf0 \par
\cf1 i. Hannah Warner, mentioned in the distribution of her father's property, 1700, probably not married.\cf0 \par
\cf1 ii. John Warner, b. about 1657, m. Mrs. Silence Hand-Wilcox.\cf0 \par
\cf1 iii. Mary Warner, died March 1, 1694-95.

He was made guardian for his two children, Anna and Mary North, who were minors at the time of their grandfather's death. Anna North, b. about 1694, m. June 28, 1716, Thomas Wilcox, b. July 5, 1687, d. Jan. 20, 1726, son of Israel and Sarah Savage-Wilcox, and had children: Hannah, Thomas, who m. Freelove Bradley, Jonathan and Hannah. Further records of this family will be found in Nash's "Fifty Puritan Ancestors", p, 63.\cf0 \par
\cf1 iv. Elizabeth Warnerm received part of her father's property in 1700. It is not clear if the following record refers to this Elizabeth, or to her cousin Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Warner. In October 1703, the court of Middletown ordered that land of Elizabeth Warner be sold, as much as may be needfull, for the defraying of the necessary charges that have been or shall be expended for the keeping and maintenance of the said, Elizabeth, she being a distracted person, and now in close custodie, to prevent her doing mischieff. One Elizabeth Warner, married Nov. 22, 1709, Samuel Pease (Hadley Town Records), but she may be a descendant of William, of Ipswich.\cf0 \par
\cf1 v. Jonathan Warner, b. 1660, d. Nov. 4, 1733, in East Middletown (Portland) to which place he had removed about 1710; buried in old Quarry burying ground Portland. He was a farmer and died leaving a substantial property to his wife by a will of, May 22, 1733.
