John Todd of Stamford CT

John Todd4, (John3, John2, Christopher1) born Nov. 13, 1709, married Hannah(???). He removed from Branford, Conn., to “Long Ridge,” in the town of Stamford, Conn., where he bought land, March 22, 1739, passed the remaining days of his life, and died there. He was the only settler in the town of Stamford by the name of Todd, at that time, and interesting entries may be found in the town records, of the different tracts of land bought by him at “the South end of ye Long Ridge.” He seems to have inherited a taste for the milling industry, for now (1914) there are ruins of two mills at Long Ridge, one for grain, the other a saw-mill, both owned and operated by him during his residence there. He became one of the leading and influential men of that region. It is not known who he married, except that her given name was Hannah. Children: 109. John Todd, b. Jan. 8, 1731. 110. Hannah Todd, b.

There is an account of the family in Bolton’s History of Westchester County, New York, as well as a history of the Hoyt family of Stamford. About 1700, certain members of the family changed the spelling of the name from Hoyt to Hait. Mr. Todd, though he was well past forty years of age, and had a large family to support, enlisted in the 9th regiment of the 4th brigade of the Connecticut Militia, serving under Lieut. Col. John Mead. His Captain being Charles Smith. Mr. Todd was a Sergeant and drummer. He participated in the battles of Washington Heights and White Plains. Time of service being from Oct. 1776 to Jan. 1777.

Abraham Todd of Greenwich CT

He was ordained in 1733, pastor of the second or West society at Greenwich, Conn. at Horseneck, the church having been located on the hill down which Gen. Putnam later made his famous escape. Here Mr. Todd remained forty years or till his death. “In 1732, the Church extended a call to Rev. Abraham Todd, who accepted the call, and during the next year was duly installed. Mr. Todd was then a young man, having just finished his theological studies. Of his character, the duration of his ministerial office over a single church is, perhaps, a sufficient indication. He is said to have been of a mild, easy disposition, and many anecdotes are handed down to us by tradition concerning him. Although a general favorite throughout the whole period of his ministry, he may, like others, have had some though few, enemies. It is related that during his ministry, many of his hearers were outspoken men, even expressing themselves publicly during worship, as to the merits or demerits of...

Ireland, who was born in 1807, died Nov. 10, 1892. 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.
