Marquis De Lafayette Todd7, (Bela6, Caleb5, Gideon4, Gideon3, Michael2, Christopher1) born Feb. 13, 1837, in Stockton, N. Y., died June 30, 1908, in Santa Paula, Cal., married first, in 1866, Mary Jane Beckwith, who died in 1869. He married second, in 1871, Dora Emma Ricker, who was born Jan., 1852, in Boston, Mass.

When he was seventeen years of age, he went to Nebraska, where he spent five years in trying to cultivate an unbroken prairie, at the end of which time, he returned to his father’s home. In 1859, he started off again, this time his objective being California. He made the journey with an ox team, and settled in Sutter County, California. In 1869, he moved to Ventura County, California, again moving by team, and to the time of his death, he lived on the place which he purchased at that time near Santa Paula.

He was a staunch republican believing in the fundamental principles of the party. All his life he was an earnest, loyal and patriotic citizen, the highest type of all that is good and great in man.

At different times he held public offices and was for one term a member of the State Legislature. He was a member of the Odd Fellows and Masonic Orders.
