Mr. Todd was reared at New Milford, Conn.; took a college course at Yale University, then a course at Yale Law School. Shortly before completing the latter, he decided to change from the study of the law to the study for the ministry; accordingly, he left the Law School, entered the Andover Theological Seminary, and after a partial course there, he went to the Princeton Theological Seminary and graduated from there in 1834; ordained by the Presbytery of Bedford, in 1838. From 1838, to 1855, he held Presbyterian pastorates in New York State; Gilead Church at Carmel, N. Y., from 1835-44; Balston Spa, 1845-47; Smithfield Church, City, 1847-55. After a ministry in the Presbyterian Churches of nearly twenty years, severe illness left him with permanently impaired health and he retired from the active ministry, but later learned to use copies of the Scriptures prepared for the blind. He lived on a small farm near Fond Du Lac, Wis., from 1891 to 1893, thence he removed to Aberdeen, South Dak., where he lived till his death in 1893.
