I'm looking for any help with this family. I've been trying to piece this family together:
Joseph Todd, Sr. was born circa 1743 (where? CT?). I found him first in Westchester Co., NY as an ensign during the Revolutionary War. Then I found him paying taxes in 1774 in Warwick, Orange Co., NY. He then fought with the Orange Co. Militia as a 2nd Lieutenant. He married Catharine Knapp, daughter of Jonathan Knapp circa 1764 in Orange Co., NY.
I think Joseph Todd must have been given land for his military service (can anybody confirm this?) because the Todds and several allied families moved to Palmyra, Ontario (at the time), NY. Joseph Todd died sometime between 1808 and 1810 probably in Palmyra. I've not been able to find a will or a gravestone. Someone told me, but I've yet to prove, that Catharine died 30 Apr 1828 in Palmyra. Again, no will and no gravestone.
Joseph Todd, Jr., b. 1765 Warwick, NY. He also fought in the Orange Co. Militia with his dad & also War of 1812. He m. (1) Julia Johnson & (2) Patty (Turner) Lee. He was the first settler of Pontiac, Oakland Co., MI & died there in 1848.
Elizabeth Todd, b. ca 1767 Orange Co., NY & d. bef. 1825 in Wayne Co., NY. She m. James Parshall circa 1788 in Warwick, NY.
James Todd (very tentative), married & had 3 children. He lived in Seneca Co., NY.
Hannah Todd, b. 1771 Orange Co., NY; d. 1827 Palmyra, Wayne Co., NY. Married Joseph Lee Horton.
Unknown Daughter; nothing further is known.
Anna Todd, (very tentative) b. ca 1776 Warwick, NY & d. 30 Dec 1854 Palmyra, Wayne Co., NY. Anna m. Isaac Howell ca. 1801. Am trying to prove connection. Isaac Howell was executor of Joseph Todd's estate, according to a land deed, although can't find a will. Was he a son-in-law?
Jonathan Todd, b. ca 1778 Warwick, NY; d. 1823 Palmyra, Wayne Co., NY. Married Polly (Mary?)(?). They are the only ones who stayed in Wayne Co. I think children were Alanson Todd, Jehiel Todd, Barbara Marie Todd and Margaret Ann Todd.
Margaret Todd, b. Warwick, NY; m. (1) Samuel Jennings & (2) Chade Southwick.
Samuel Todd, b. ca 1779 Warwick, NY; d. Mar 1850 Adrian, Lenawee Co., MI; m. Hannah Whitney abt. 1799.
Catharine Todd, b. 1787 (date doesn't fit with other siblings) Warwick, NY & died in 1858 in Groveland, MI. She m. Peter Ingersoll.
Can anybody help with Todd, Knapp, Johnson, Turner, Lee, Parshall, Horton, Howell, Jennings, Southwick, Whitney - all in (Palmyra, Marion and Williamson) Wayne Co., NY? Thanks in advance.
