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.

He removed from North Haven, Conn., to Cheshire, Conn., in 1783, with his brother Caleb. He too, endorsed notes with his brother Caleb, for his younger brother Moses, and later had to meet his obligations, and managed to pay in full and thus saved his home. The story is that he was advised by his friends to leave for parts unknown, to make sure to keep out of jail; but he replied, “I have not done a thing that I am ashamed of and I will not turn my back to any man.” He lived in Cheshire, Conn. In 1796, he in company with his brother Moses, and Bani Bishop, of Southington, Conn., bought of Mr. Samuel Byington, of Wolcott, his farm and hotel located west of the Green, and a little southwest of the Meeting house. This farm contained forty-seven acres, and besides the hotel there was a wheelwright shop. The price paid was four hundred and eighty-four pounds. They did not keep the business very long, for in Feb., 1797, they sold out to Abijah Fenn, who built in the following year, 1798, the store near the corner of the lot towards the meeting house. This store was later purchased by Moses Todd. “In the Autumn, especially along the mountain range in the east part of the town, there were immense flights of pigeons.
