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...

Biography of Homer P. Moored

Homer P. Moored was born in the town of Hamden, Connecticut, in 1832. His parents were Orrin and Hamel (Hayes) Moore, both natives of New England. His father was a farmer, and Mr. Moore was reared to that calling. In 1857 he started for the great West, and located in Rice County, Minnesota, where he took up Government land and engaged in farming. In 1862 Mr. Moore responded to the call of his country for soldiers, and enlisted in Company A, Seventh Minnesota Volunteer Infantry. The Indian outbreak soon after rendered troops necessary in northwestern Minnesota and Dakota, and his regiment was sent in that direction. He participated in that campaign until the attendant hardships so impaired his health that he was granted a furlough. Upon the expiration of his leave of absence he was detailed as a hospital steward, and placed on duty in the military hospital of Hartford and New Haven, Connecticut. He remained in that service until lie was finally so broken in health that he was discharged in 1864. He remained in Connecticut, and upon a restoration of health entered into business in Hartford, as a flour, grain and hay dealer. He continued his mercantile pursuits until 1874. In that year he came to Riverside, and purchased a twenty-acre tract of land on the north side of Bandini Avenue, about one-half mile west of Brockton...
