Abraham Todd of Greenwich CT

Abraham Todd, (Jonah, Samuel, Christopher) born Feb. 18, 1709-10, died Dec. 17, 1772, married Nov. 30, 1727, Hannah, daughter of Abraham and Elizabeth (Glover) Dickerman, who was born May 19, 1709, died July 21, 1777. She was a sister of Mary Dickerman, wife of his cousin Michael Todd. He was a graduate of Yale College of the class of 1727. 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...

Biography of A. H. Reynolds

A.H. REYNOLDS. – This pioneer of Walla Walla, Washington, is a bank director, a large real-estate owner, and has been active in many of the early enterprises, not only of that city, but of Oregon and California. He was born in 1808, in St. Lawrence county, New York; and his memories of early life are deeply tinged with the exciting events of the war of 1812, in which his parents had an active part. Receiving the rigid and economical training of the old times, he added to his education by efforts of his own, and qualified himself for active life by learning the trade of a millwright. After a number of years spent in the old West, he crossed the plains to California in 1850 by the old trail. His health failing, he decided to go to Chile, but by the persuasion of a friend came to Trinidad. Drifting up the coast, he came through Yreka to Oregon, and so far recovered his health as to engage in building mills. He put up flour mills in Benton and Polk counties, and did extensive work on the first woolen mill at Salem. With the money thus earned he went to Portland and engaged in financial enterprises and money-loaning. In 1859 he came to Walla Walla, on the second trip that the Colonel Wright made to Wallula. In that valley he...
