Leonard Todd of Bethany CT

Leonard Todd7, (Ely6, Jonah5, Stephen4, Samuel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born Nov. 8, 1800, died April 6, 1876, married Dec. 24, 1821, Julia, daughter of Elam and Lowly (Dickerman) Bradley, who was born Nov. 21, 1802, died Oct. 11, 1899. Leonard Todd received a country school education and when 21 years of age he married Julia Bradley, of Hamden, Conn., in Grace Episcopal Church, in Hamden, the first couple to be married in the new church, the same is standing and is still used for worship. Leonard Todd was a good illustration of New England thrift. By hard work and rigid economy he not only got a good living off from one of those stony New England farms, but he amassed quite a fortune for those days. It was not necessary to teach thrift to Leonard Todd in the last century, for he together with his frugal wife had already learned that lesson and learned it well. It would be well if we who live in this 20th century would practice it more as did they. Like so many of those saintly men and women of those times, while frugal and careful and thrifty, Leonard Todd was not miserly or penurious as can be testified to by the fact that he was always very generous to the church, also to individuals when occasion required and to worthy causes. Mr. Todd was...

She died Feb. 24, 1920, in Woodbridge, Conn., and will be sorely missed because she was a good woman and full of good wishes. They lived in Woodbridge, Conn. Dwight Ely Todd like his father was a successful farmer. His father and he carried on farming together on the old farm in Bethany, Conn., very successfully. As regards business judgement and ability, it may be safe to say that there have not been anyone of the Leonard Todd line who had surpassed him. When he died he had accumulated a goodly fortune. It was due to hard work, to thrift and frugality to a considerable extent, but also due to his excellent judgement in placing money where it yeilded large returns. Like his father and mother he was a strong churchman. He very liberally endowed Christ Church, Bethany, and always gave generously to the church in other ways because he firmly believed in it. Children: *1948. Leonard Enos, b. May 10, 1880. 1949. Julia Rosetta, b. June 24, 1886; graduated from Smith College, Northampton, Mass., class of 1911.
