In above test case I added search input boxes to colomn 0 and 3. But now the other colomns are showing the title of the original header that was cloned. How do I keep those titles empty and keep the titles in the search input boxes?

    Use a jquery selector to choose the columns you want to clear the text using jQuery text() to clear the text value. This is specific to the 2nd column:

    $('#example thead tr:eq(1) th:eq(1)').text('')
    

    See this example:

    You may be able to workout a jjQuery selector to choose all the th tags that don't have input tags. Another option is to apply a class to the columns you don't want the search input and use that as the selector. Lots of options depending on what works best for your specific situation.
