Moses Todd of Ohio

Moses Todd6, (Hezekiah5, Caleb4, Samuel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) died Dec. 22, 1848, married Delight, daughter of Timothy and Delight (Norton) Upson, who was born March 11, 1769, died Dec. 2, 1857.

In 1797, Moses Todd bought of Mr. Dan Tuttle his farm in Wolcott, Ct., containing ninety-three acres, at the south-west corner of the green, having paid seven hundred and fifty pounds for it. This farm was afterwards owned by Mr. Asaph Hotchkiss who resided on it for several years.

After going into bankruptcy, Mr. Todd removed to north-eastern Ohio, where he became a very prominent farmer. He bred and improved a strain of swine known in that region as Todd’s Improved Chester Whites.

He kept a store in Wolcott, Conn., around 1800, but soon afterward sold it to Benham and Tuttle who were in the business for a number of years.

Children:
*610. Sarah, b. Feb. 23, 1795.
611. Woodard, settled in Norwalk, O.; was auditor of Huron County several years, d. in Norwalk, O.
612. Charlotte Delight, m.(???)Hanford late in life; no children.
613. Henry, b. Oct. 23, 1801, in Newtown, Conn., d. Jan. 13, 1890, in Vermillion, Ohio. He was unmarried. In the spring of 1836, he went to Vermillion, Ohio, with his parents and helped to develop the farm on which he lived until his death. He was the last survivor of his father’s family who journeyed west together at that time, and as he often remarked was the last of the pioneers in his neighborhood. “Uncle Henry” (as he was familiarly called by two generations) was of a kind, genial and social nature, fond of friends and friendly with all, knowing no enemies. Positive in his views and convictions, he was public spirited and the very soul of honor, with a keen and discriminating sense of right and wrong. Generous to a fault, with a willing heart and free hand, he was ever ready to help the needy, or a good cause. Possessed with a remarkable memory and clear mind, stored with a large fund of anecdote and incident, he took delight in relating the events that happened in his pioneer days, and even further back, in the long ago times of his boyhood.
*614. Isaac, b. Dec. 18, 1808, twin with the next.
*615. Kneeland, b. Dec. 18, 1808.
