Frederick Handel Todd7, (Josiah6, Dan5, Christopher4, Samuel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born Feb. 26, 1819, in North Haven, Conn., died March 18, 1868, married Sept. 17, 1850, Phebe Elizabeth, daughter of Williams and Maria (Benjamin) Slosson, who was born March 9, 1830, in Newark Valley, where also she was married at her fathers house.

His father removed with his family to Newark Valley, when he was about thirteen years of age, and being in poor circumstances could give his son only the advantages of a common school education. Upon arriving at the age of manhood Mr. Todd became a tanner (which was his fathers occupation in life), which business he followed for a number of years; he also opened and carried on a store for the sale of general merchandise at Newark Valley, N. Y.

In 1858, Mr. Todd made a purchase of lumber lands in northern Michigan, and seven years later, or thereabouts, began operations in clearing, lumbering, etc., in that State. He was drowned in the Muskegon River while attempting to cross the boom or shute, letting out the logs, the current being very rapid. He was a stanch member of the Republican party, and represented the town of Newark Valley in the board of supervisors for two or three terms. In his death his wife lost a dutiful husband; his children, a loving father; his friends and business associates, an honest man.

His Children were born in Newark Valley, except Frank H. the youngest, who was born in Big Rapids, Mich.
