Daniel Todd6, (Daniel5, Daniel4, Daniel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born Dec. 24, 1777, at Derby, Conn., died March 8, 1867, at Rodman, N. Y., married Sept. 1, 1801, Betsey Peck, who was born Nov. 13, 1786, died Feb. 16, 1873.

“He was born in old Derby, Conn., and experienced religion sixty years ago, under the preaching of Rev. Mr. Van Nest. Soon after this he united with the M. E. Church in Cornwall, Conn. About two years and a half after this he came to Whitesville, N. Y., where he resided till called away to his reward. He came to these parts while it was all a wilderness. He raised a large family of seven sons and six daughters, all of whom, except one, attained the age of maturity. Father Todd was an exemplary Christian, a kind parent, a devoted companion, and a useful citizen. He retained his sprightliness and vivacity until a week before he died, and his reason was unimpaired until within two or three hours before he left the shores of mortality. A short time before he took his departure, he earnestly exhorted some of his children to seek the Lord, and meet him in heaven.”
