Augustus H. Todd8, (Burr7, Isaac6, Samuel5, Samuel4, Samuel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born April 11, 1863, married Sarah, daughter of Nelson and Melissa Beardsley, of Kelley’s Corners, Delaware County, N. Y.

In Biographical Review, published in 1895, article of Augustus H. Todd, the leading men of Delaware County, N. Y., there is a very ridiculous fable about Samuel Todd the Revolutionary war soldier. Samuel Todd, according to Clarissa, his daughter, lived in Litchfield County, Conn. In 1800, she was born there; in 1802, the family moved to Middletown, Delaware County, N. Y.; there were six sons and four daughters from 22 down to 2 years; three of them taught school. Now, as his wife, Mary Dudley Todd had 10 children, she could not have been the “brave young wife” of the fable. And as her father, Capt. John E. Dudley owned the Dudley mansion in Wallingford, Conn., it is not likely Mary Dudley Todd was poor as the fable tells about. Mary Dudley Todd’s mother was a Brockett and had property. The fables bride and groom had ten children when they moved to New York in 1802, Viz.: John, Samuel, Dudley, Lyman, Dyer, Burr, Mary, Lucinda, Sally and Clarissa, then in 1804, Darling was born and in 1807, Isaac was born. All lived to grow up but Dyer, who died at the age of 22 years.

The above criticism is by Adella Helmershausen.
