Asa Todd of West Chesterfield MA

Asa Todd5, (Gershom4, Gershom3, Michael2, Christopher1) born June 28, 1756, died July 16, 1847, in West Chesterfield Mass., and was buried there. He married May 24, 1778, Abigail, daughter of Amos and Phebe Bishop, of New Haven, Conn. He was a Baptist minister and held pastorates in Whately and West Chesterfield, Mass., for more than thirty years, having been ordained the first pastor of the Baptist Society of Whately, Mass., Sept. 9, 1789. In 1803 he removed to West Chesterfield, Mass., where he was ordained the second pastor of the Baptist Society of that place, and was dismissed Nov. 2, 1820, in consequence of a dissatisfaction developing among some of the members on account of his having joined the Free Masons, and also for difficulties of a more personal nature. Yet, in spite of the rupture, he lived among his old neighbors for many years afterwards, and was known as “Elder Todd,” passing his remaining days in his old home. He was buried in the cemetery on the hillside below his home, by his mothers side. Becoming a Christian at the age of 25, he soon felt it his duty to make known a Savior’s love to those who knew him not, and although favored with very limited means of education, and meeting with many discouragements, yet naturally endowed with great strength of mind, and with perseverance, by his...

To cure men’s sicknesses and sins, He took unwearied care and pains, And strove to make his patient whole, Throughout, in body and in soul. He loved his God, loved to do good, To all his friends vast kindness showed, Nor could his enimies exclaim! And say he was not kind to them. His labors met a sudden close, Now he enjoys a sweet repose, And when the just to life shall rise, Among the first he’ll mount the skies.” Children: I. Olive, b. Oct. 28, 1718. II. Lydia, b.
