I have done some digging and suspect that your John Todd b 1795/1796 GA was the son of John Todd died 1815 in PUtnam Co GA. A DNA Sample would prove connection to that family that is a branch of the Mary Todd Lincoln group of Todds. I also suspect that if the information about John Todd marrying Betsy Fiedler is correct, then the Elizabeth Todd the wife of John Todd b 1795 may be Elizabeth Fiedler.
Based on the following, I strongly suspect that your ancestor John Todd was the John Todd b 1795, son of John Todd who died in 1815 in Putnam Co GA.
1. There is a John Todd born 1795, son of John Todd of Putnam Co GA who comes from a branch of the Mary Todd Lincoln family. See my website page:
2. There are two John Todds who went to Tallapoosa Co AL. Yours and an unrelated John Todd from the same general area of Georgia. I don't know which John Todd is the John Todd who sold land in Tallapoosa Co in 1854 but he is probalby your John Todd. Hence looking for land purchases in Tallapoosa County for John Todd might be useful.
