Edward Monroe Todd8, (David M.7, Daniel6, Daniel5, Daniel4, Daniel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born Oct. 11, 1852, died May 7, 1915, in Watertown, N. Y., married Oct. 3, 1882, Fannie M. Shannon, who died April 30, 1891. He married second, Oct. 5, 1895, Emma Archer.

He was born in East Rodman, N. Y., where he worked on a farm and also learned the carpenters trade. About 1886, he moved to Burr’s Mills, N. Y., where he bought a saw, grist and cider mill, and besides he did carpenters work and general repairing of sleighs, carriages and wagons. About 1903, he moved to Watertown, N. Y., and bought a house, and worked in carriage shops for about eight years when his health began to fail. He then worked around on light jobs as a pastime mostly, as he could not readily give up his active life all at once. He also at this time began to learn the printers trade with A. W. Miner of Watertown, N. Y. He played cornet in the band in his native village and was flute soloist in the church there.
