Early in life, Mr. Todd learned the blacksmiths trade which he followed in New York City until 1833, when he removed to Adrian, Michigan, making the journey by way of the Erie Canal to Buffalo. At Buffalo, he chartered a schooner to carry his family and household goods to Toledo, Ohio. The journey from Toledo, Ohio, to Adrian, Michigan, occupied five days. Arriving at Adrian, Michigan, which at that time consisted of only a few log houses, he opened a blacksmith shop at once, which was the first in that region. After working three years at his trade at Adrian, he removed to Rome Township, Michigan, where he cleared a section of land. He helped to organize a Methodist Society; gave land for a school house and also for a cemetery. Here most of his active years were spent in honest toil. He established and merited the reputation of being an honest, conscientious and upright man, a kind neighbor, a good citizen and a consistent Christian.

The most numerous of all his guests during this time were the pioneer Methodist ministers, who were none the less welcome, and entertainment for them was free. In 1859, he returned to Adrian, Michigan,...
