Have you tried the marriage and death records of their children (if any)? Those could have her married name.

Do you know where and when James and Susan died? Their death records and/or obituaries could have her maiden name as well.

Did they live in one location for many years? If so, they may be included in a local county or town history/biographical record, too.

I don't think it's proven yet that Susan Hopkins is Susan Titus (unless I'm missing something...?) More research is needed.

I agree, is there a marriage or bond record or death certificate or other family members known?

They had a daughter Abby titus born in 1857. susan hopkins died in 1912, but Susan titus's maiden name I'm still not sure of. it's not listed on any census and I haven't found a death recors for her. on the 1880 census, Susan's father ius listed as being born in RI, and her mother as being born in vermont, though no names are given. This seems to rule out susan hopkins, since both her parents were Rhode islanders.
