The diary of Ezra Stiles, President of Yale College from 1782 to 1785 has been published by order of the Yale Corporation and edited by F. B. Dexter. In Vol. 1, page 177, there is a list of “Families in New Haven in 1760.” There are mentioned twelve families of Todd’s including Titus Todd, who is mentioned with the Tuttle’s under the heading “West side of river.” “In 1792 there appear for the first time the names of the Congregational “Choristers:” Caleb Blakesly, Thomas Cooper. Justus Bishop, Titus Todd, Jairus Sanford, Thos. Pierpont, Ezekiel Jacobs.

Jesse Todd of West Springfield MA

Jesse Todd4, (Benjamin3, Michael2, Christopher1) born Jan. 1, 1735, probably in North Haven, Conn., died Oct. 27, 1819, in Agawam, Mass., married first Nov. 26, 1761, Lydia Cooper. He is mentioned in the Cooper Gen. He married second Feb. 24, 1790, Susannah, dau. of Isaac and Abigail (Hale) Chandler, of Enfield, Ct., born Feb. 3, 1754. He was mentioned in the “Century Sermon” by Rev. Benjamin Trumbull of North Haven, Conn., as having removed to “Springfield in Massachusetts.” He was buried in the cemetery at Agawam, which was originally a part of West Springfield, Mass., which was the town in which he lived. The Thorpe records of his children appear to be somewhat wrong. It mentions ten children, seven of whom are assumed to have lived only a year or two in each instance. The town records of West Springfield, Mass. have been carefully searched and it appears there, that five of the ten children by his first wife, lived to be married and have families. Of the remaining five, no record could be found. Children by Lydia Cooper: 189. Solomon, bapt. 1765, lived about one year. 190. Solomon, m. and had children, but their names are unknown, but had a grand-daughter, Ruth Naomi Todd, who m. (1)(???)Bullard; (2)(???) Cole. 191.

Married third July 4, 1816, Eliza Brockett, a sister of his second wife. Prudence Tuttle was from Wallingford, Conn., her father being an officer there under the King. Gideon Todd was born in North Haven, Conn. Their marriage created a sensation in Colonial society. The Tuttle’s were a wealthy and aristocratic family and when young “Gid” Todd asked their daughters hand in marriage, he was haughtily refused. He was their equal by birth and lineage, but had his fortune yet to make, and they had other views for their daughter. One winter day, there was consternation and dismay in the Tuttle mansion; Prudence was missing and investigation revealed the fact that she had eloped, mounted on a pillon, behind her lover, they had ridden to North Haven and were married. Her parents disowned her and her name was never to be mentioned. As time passed, reports reached them that Gideon Todd was getting on in a remarkable...

Josiah Todd of North Haven CT

Josiah Todd6, (Dan5, Christopher4, Samuel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born Dec. 18, 1794, in North Haven, Conn., died Oct. 22, 1869, married June 17, 1816, Elizabeth, daughter of Jesse and Patience (Todd) Clinton, who was born Sept. 20, 1796, died Nov. 18, 1886. For her mothers ancestry, see number 213. They lived first in North Haven, Conn., then Newark Valley, N. Y., and later they returned to North Haven. Josiah Todd was a prominent man in town, school, society and military matters for about fifteen years. He was orderly sergeant for some ten years in the old militia company and was more than once offered a commission, but declined, partly on the ground that with his growing family his means would not allow. I think I can truthfully say from my own personal knowledge and what has been told me by those who were contemporary, and members of the company with him, that no one equaled him in all the varied tactics with company drill. He was very prompt in commanding orders, and trained members of the company in the manuel of arms to great exactness and promptitude. It was common in those days, for an orderly sergeant to form the company, which, under his direction was very quickly done, and after short drill in the manuel of arms, which usually took place on the ‘Green’, a little north and west...
