Kneeland Todd of Florence OH

Kneeland Todd7, (Moses6, Hezekiah5, Caleb4, Samuel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born Dec. 18, 1808, in Newtown, Conn., died April 24, 1883, married April 24, 1836, Julia Booth, a sister of his brother Isaac’s wife. She was born July 22, 1808, died March 11, 1895. Mr. Todd was one of the early pioneers of Wakeman, Ohio, where he arrived in 1833. He shared the privations of early pioneer life with his twin brother for three years, when he returned to Conn. and there married Julia Booth, of Woodbury, Conn. It is a singular coincident that his marriage and death, also the death of his son Albert, took place in the same month and the same day of the month. Soon after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Todd returned to Ohio and settled in Wakeman. In 1845 they removed from Wakeman to Florence, Ohio, where he died. He was a man of sound judgment and good principles, kind and affectionate as a husband and father and a good neighbor. He aimed to live uprightly, was honest and just in his dealings. In his pursuit of agriculture and horticulture he was always thorough and practical, which combined with perseverance and industry brought him success and competence, though for fifty years he was physically weak. Politically, morally, and religiously, his guiding star was the RIGHT, and he rejoiced in every good work. In the old...

Isaac Todd of Wakeman OH

Isaac Todd7, (Moses6, Hezekiah5, Caleb4, Samuel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born Dec. 18, 1808, possibly in Newtown, Conn., died July 17, 1890, in Wakeman, Ohio, married June 13, 1830, Fanny Booth, who was born Oct. 26, 1805, died Sept. 28, 1887, in Wakeman, Ohio. The following sketch is taken from a History of Huron County, Ohio. “In the year 1827 Isaac Todd, then a young man of 18 came into the township and the year following bought the farm where he now lives. There was no improvement east of him at that time. In 1830 he married Fanny Booth. Mr. Todd seems to have had a hard struggle of it in the Wakeman woods. For some time after his marriage he was destitute of boots or shoes and in attending church his wife would wear her everyday shoes carrying her Sunday best until near the church, when she would take them off for her husband to wear and put on her best ones. Afterwards, when he became able to own a yoke of oxen, they rode to church on a sled the year round.” The above incidents prove very conclusively their devotion to their church. He built his first log house in the midst of an almost boundless forest through which there was no road or path save that indicated by glazed trees. When a road was built some years later,...

Biographical Sketch of E. G. Judson

E. G. Judson. About 1881-’82 Judson & Brown secured 1,500 acres of land on the sloping hillsides south of the Mill Creek zanja, surveyed and platted the same into five, ten and twenty-acre lots, with wide avenues traversing the whole plat. This enterprise was regarded as an experiment from the fact that the red soil of the slope had never been tested as to its adaptability to horticultural pursuits. With plenty of water and good cultivation the doubt as to the value of the land was soon removed and the success of the colony enterprise was assured. Thus encouraged the projectors enlarged their possessions by additional purchases, until they had between three and four thousand acres in their colony, which, on account of the color of the soil, they named Redlands. This was the fourth city incorporated within San Bernardino County. November 26, 1888, the citizens, in accordance with the general laws of the State, voted as follows on incorporation: whole number of votes cast, 283; for incorporation, 216. Officers elected were: Trustees, E. G. Judson, J. B. Glover, B. W. Cave, C. N. Andrews. H. H. Sinclair; Clerk, L. W. Clark; Marshal, W. C. Brumagim; Treasurer, F. P. Morrison. Mr. Judson was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and was educated there and at Amherst. He first went into the book business in New York City, where he was afterward...
