Edward Payson Todd8, (Silas7, Elam6, Edmund5, Christopher4, Samuel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born July 24, 1834, in Mina, Chautauqua County, N. Y., married Feb. 2, 1858, Jane M. Lemon, who was born Oct. 7, 1838, in Canada, near Niagara Falls, died July 19, 1912, in Independence, Iowa, where he now (1914) lives.

He was reared on a farm and had very little opportunity to obtain an education. In Aug., 1862, he enlisted in the 96th Illinois Infantry, in which he served his time of enlistment and returned home to family and friends without being wounded; he was in fourteen heavy battles and many skirmishes. On his return home, he began farming again. In the spring of 1874, he sold his farm in Illinois, and went to Kansas where he bought another near the town of Independence. In 1896, he retired from active business life on the farm, and since then has lived quietly in Independence, Kan.
