He went with his parents from Poultneyville, N. Y., to Port Dalhousie, Ont., Canada, where his father started in the hotel business. At the age of about 15, Mr. Todd obtained employment on a vessel plying on the great lakes, determined to be a sailor, which occupation he followed until his marriage. During the winter of 1881-82 he went to Onondaga, Mich., to visit his mothers relatives and while there he met Miss Cochran, who was soon to be his future wife. She being a farmer’s daughter, seems to have exerted some influence upon him to attempt farming for a time, but the renumeration being to meager to suit him, he soon returned to the lakes for the summer season, the winters he passed in St. Catherine’s, Canada, which was the home of his mother, until after her death when he made Buffalo, N. Y., his headquarters for his remaining days, his death being caused by Pneumonia.
