Oliver Uel Todd of Somers NY

Oliver Uel Todd7, (Uel6, Oliver5, Abraham4, Jonah3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born Oct. 5, 1805, in South Salem, N. Y., died Oct. 5, 1880, married Dec. 10, 1832, Hester Jane Green, who was born Sept. 12, 1809, died Feb. 18, 1896. At the age of seven, he moved to Somers, N. Y., with the other members of the family, and settled upon the farm which afterwards became his own and home for life. Educational advantages at the time were extremely limited, and the youthful Oliver made the most of the few winter months of tuition available at the district school, and acquired a fair education, but his life work was to be more manual than mental, and his education was most thoroughly practical, installed by the hardy experiences of the old days of farming. Close application and untiring industry, naturally resulted in developing a model farm, comprising about two hundred and fifty acres, with a good house and other farm buildings. At the age of twenty-seven he married Miss Hester Jane, daughter of Isaac Green of Somers, N. Y., who brought to the home he had prepared, an experience in the duties pertaining to a farmers life, and a genial and happy disposition, well calculated to enhance prosperity. Conveniently situated upon the direct turnpike road, the immense droves of cattle and sheep, slowly wended their way toward the city markets, found on the Todd farm ample accommodation, and for many years it became a noted hostelry. The following items taken from his account-book for the year of 1849, show something of the character of his business in those days. To 11,000...
