Edmond was a Quaker. From records of the Quarterly Meeting: "Edmond Titus, one that Received ye truth many years since and lived and dyed in it..."
His final words were these: "Edmund Titus, one that Received ye truth many years since and lived and dyed in it. In his later days his Eyes grew dim that he could not see and thick of hearing, all which he bore very patiently. In the time of his last sickness his daughter Phebe field standing by him, he said, my Life is in Christ my God, with many more comfortable words. His last words were these: - I have put away all filthiness & superfluity & Hautiness. I have Received with meekness ye engrafted word that is Able to save the soul & soon departed this life in a quiet frame of Spirit senseable to the last ye 7d. 2d. mo., 1715 aged near eighty five years."
"His wife lived twelve years longer after her husband. She died the 17th of 2d mo., 1727 in ye ninetieth year of her age. She was bedridden for several years before her death. She lost many of her natural faculties; yet she kept a sense of the Divine goodness, exhorted her children and neighbors to "wait upon God, that they might there by be maid senseable of the workings of Truth in their hearts which was the way through obedience thereunto to find peace with God."
