George Iru Todd of Northampton MA

George Iru Todd9, (John R.8, Iru S.7, Justus6, Asa5, Gershom4, Gershom3, Michael2, Christopher1) born Sept. 3, 1872, married Oct. 27, 1903, Lillian Cynthia, daughter of Ezra Harwood and Eva Evelyn (Blanchard) Mason, who was born in Plainfield, Mass., July 15, 1878.

He was born at the old homestead in Roberts Meadow, Northampton, Mass., which has been kept in the family since some time before 1800. He is the fourth generation to have owned the place and the fifth to have lived upon it. The original farm was bequeathed to his great-grandfather, John Root, by the latter’s grandfather, Joseph Root, of Northampton, Mass., the deed of conveyance dated in 1802 being in the possession of the subject of this sketch. Since then a small portion of the original farm has been sold off, but later other acres have been bought on so the farm is larger than in the beginning.

In 1902, becoming somewhat dissatisfied with farming he secured a position as a clerk in the Northampton post office, receiving his permanent appointment July 1, 1903. Within the next ten months he decided to buy the old farm and took possession the following April, resigning his position in the office.

2758. Earl Mason, b. Aug. 29, 1904.
2759. Merton Root, b. May 13, 1907.
