Frances Adelaide Todd Treloar of Fall River MA

TRELOAR, Frances Adelaide Todd8, (Orrin K.7, William6, Simeon5, Joel4, Ithamar3, Michael2, Christopher1) married Charles Elmer, son of John Treloar, who is an independent manufacturer of hardware at Yalesville, where they reside.

Mrs. Treloar spent all her years until 18 at school and had the special advantage of the State Normal at New Haven. She then spent a couple years in the home of her brother, the Rev. Wm. E. M. Todd, a former well known minister of New England, in Rhode Island and at Fall River, Mass. While at the latter place a large number of young people united with the church and among them she received the rite of Baptism and was admitted into the communion of Broadway–now Pilgrim–Congregational church of which her brother was then the installed pastor.

Spending some three more years with her mother, she was then married at the home, her brother, then in the west, returning expressly to officiate at the wedding. Many people in all the walks of life, from Watertown, North Haven, Meriden and Wallingford were in attendance.

Fannie, as she is called by her intimates, was always of a most amiable nature, winning the esteem and affection of a wide circle of those about her age in the three towns in which she had lived, Wallingford, Bristol, R. I. and Fall River, Mass., where she was a prime favorite with a lively group of literary and musical folk always attending her brother’s church in that city. At home she was known as earnest, humble and accomplished in all that makes home life attractive. Thus she has been able to create an ideal resting place for her family.


I. Donald Nelson Todd; he made a fine record during the late world war in the manufacture of munitions at Bridgeport, Conn., where he had charge of a large shift of workers. His administration of this responsibility was well spoken of.
II. Robert Carlton Todd.
III. Howard Alton Todd.
