Elnathan Todd7, (Elnathan6, John5, John4, John3, John2, Christopher1) born Oct. 15, 1812, died Feb. 19, 1897, married Oct. 29, 1855, Henrietta C., daughter of Samuel Crane, whose family and ancestors had controlled large grants of land in Bedford, New York, descendants of John Crane who came from England in early colonial times. She was often urged to try to secure her supposed rights in the Jennings estate of England. She was born April 13, 1825, died Feb. 7, 1895.
Mr. Todd was born in Pound Ridge, which is a short distance north of Long Ridge, both communities being included in the town of Stamford, Conn. He finally settled in Long Ridge. He and his cousin, Frederick Schofield, owned the only store for miles around. They also, established a shoe business there, and when it had expanded to large proportions, they sold the factory which they had occupied, to Seth Smith Cook and Charles H. Lounsbury. Their business prospered and thrived for a number of years. Distance from the railroad caused them to move to Stamford, having sold the business at Long Ridge, to John E. Todd, son of Elnathan, one of the founders.
1136. John Everett Todd, born June 19, 1857, in Long Ridge, Stamford, Conn., died Jan. 11, 1908, married Oct. 19, 1887, Sally Gardner. Mr. Todd bought and managed the shoe manufacturing business in Long Ridge, which he purchased of his father and partner, for a short time, when he too, went to Stamford. This removal was a severe loss to the village. Child:

1137. Harriet A. Todd, born March 22, 1861, married Dec. 27, 1893, Sullivan Moulton Pine, who is descended from a member of the family, who received a grant of land on “Pearsall’s Hill” on Long Island. A part of this land was exchanged for land on King Street, Port Chester, N. Y., about 1744, which is now owned and occupied by the above mentioned descendant. The original settlers in this country of the Pine family was James and Samuel who came to this country in their own vessels.
The name Moulton came by way of Mr. Pine’s mother, who was a descendant of that family, they being among the early settlers of Massachusetts. Mrs. Pine has been deeply interested in the completion of a Todd Genealogy and it was due to her efforts that the writer was enabled to get the data concerning her branch of the family. Children:
