He left school for the farm at a very early age and remained actively engaged in farming till his death. His farm was on the old turnpike road, two and a half miles from Somers (N. Y.) village, known as the Micah Purdy farm, which he bought from his father Uel Todd. His house was built upon a high elevation of ground some distance west of the highway. It is a handsome structure, and occupies a sightly location from whence a fine, view is obtained of the Plum Brook Valley, the undulating farm lands of eastern Somers, and the distant hills of south-western Connecticut. Surrounding the house is an ample lawn, and the cultivated fields of a rich and extensive farm.
Harvey M. Todd was a plain, unostentatious man, upright and straightforward in every transaction. He won, by his steady industry, a large fortune, and obtained for himself an enviable place in the community in which he lived. He was a director of the Farmers and Drovers Bank at Somers, N. Y.
