Silas Todd of Mina NY

Silas Todd7, (Elam6, Edmund5, Christopher4, Samuel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born Nov. 26, 1798, in Plymouth, Conn., married Nov. 30, 1825, Betsey Filley, who was born Aug. 13, 1800, in East Granby, Conn.

Mr. Todd was married in Lowville, N. Y., and soon after moved to Mina, Chautauqua County, N. Y., where he bought land which was covered with heavy timber. He cleared a spot large enough for his house and a garden. The house he built of logs, and here the first three children were born. About 1832, he hired out to a man in Sherman, N. Y., to manage an ashery. As the work was very exacting, he soon gave it up, and started for Illinois, where he bought a nice prairie farm. After having bought the farm, he went back to New York to get his family and household goods and again started for Illinois and their new home, the journey being made with a team. This was about 1843. He believed in education, and they both were very anxious to have their children receive a good one, and helped them all within their power.
