Justus Lyman5, (Gideon4, Gideon3, Michael2, Christopher1) born March 5, 1766, died May 28, 1844, married Elizabeth Penfield, daughter of Isaac and Hannah (Penfield) Goodsell, of East Haven, Conn., who was born in 1773. Her great grandfather who settled in Branford, Conn., in 1679, married June 4, 1684, Sarah Hemingway.

They lived quietly in North Haven, Conn., as he had no ambition to acquire great wealth, as he was perfectly contented with the competence left him by his father, which included a fine farm, having left similar bequests to his other sons.

Mr. Todd was very studious, and a great lover of books. The minister who officiated at his funeral, said, “he was the best read man he ever met, outside of the professions.”

He was a member of the General Assembly in 1808.

Children:
*439. Polly P., b. July 22, 1789.
*440. Henry W.
*441. Loyal Francis, b. Nov. 1, 1798.
