Harvey Mead Todd of Westchester County NY

Harvey Mead Todd7, (Uel6, Oliver5, Abraham4, Jonah3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born June 2, 1803, in Lewisboro, N. Y., died Dec. 21, 1881, married Feb. 11, 1827, Esther Warren, daughter of William and Catherine (Green) Nelson, who was born Nov. 8, 1808, died May 1, 1883.

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.
