Dwight Ely Todd8, (Leonard7, Ely6, Jonah5, Stephen4, Samuel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born Sept. 11, 1834, died Jan. 3, 1901, married Dec. 24, 1877, Catherine Emily, daughter of Enos Sperry, who had married first, Henry Bishop. She died Feb. 24, 1920, in Woodbridge, Conn., and will be sorely missed because she was a good woman and full of good wishes. They lived in Woodbridge, Conn.

Dwight Ely Todd like his father was a successful farmer. His father and he carried on farming together on the old farm in Bethany, Conn., very successfully. As regards business judgement and ability, it may be safe to say that there have not been anyone of the Leonard Todd line who had surpassed him. When he died he had accumulated a goodly fortune. It was due to hard work, to thrift and frugality to a considerable extent, but also due to his excellent judgement in placing money where it yeilded large returns. Like his father and mother he was a strong churchman. He very liberally endowed Christ Church, Bethany, and always gave generously to the church in other ways because he firmly believed in it.

Children:
*1948. Leonard Enos, b. May 10, 1880.
1949. Julia Rosetta, b. June 24, 1886; graduated from Smith College, Northampton, Mass., class of 1911. She has been connected with St. Margarets Diocesan School for Girls in Waterbury, Conn.
