I am looking for ancestors and descendants of the James M. Todd Family of Crucifer, Henderson County, Tennessee. James married R. Caroline Craven (also of Henderson County, Tennessee). The M likely stands for Maberry, his mother's maiden name. As of the 1880 census and according to the family bible, James M. Todd had the following children; William J. Todd born 11/18/1860, B. H. Todd born 7/7/1862, James R. Todd born 12/10/1863, John A. Todd born 01/11/1866, Mary Matildy Elisabeth Todd born 05/01/1868, Louis Henry Todd (my great grandfather) born 01/31/1872, A. Todd (son) born 1874, and L. C. Todd (daughter) born 1873.
According to the 1860 census James's father was William Todd born in NC in 1797, and his mother was Mary Maberry Todd born in NC in 1807. William and Mary Todd has the following children in addition to their oldest James; Lewis H. Todd born 1828 in NC, twins Rebecca Todd and Mary E. Todd born 1832 in NC, William J. Todd born 1836 in NC (and who later fought in the Civil War in Kentucky for the Confederacy as his 1862 letter to his sister Mary E. Todd states "he cannot come home due to his having to haul corpses to their famlies", Nancy Todd born 1838 in TN, John W. Todd born 1844, and Martha Todd born 1847 in TN. They were all living in District 14 in 1860, nearby to other Todd Families in Districts 15 (Wiley Wesley Todd and Mary Spalding Todd) and District 9 (William Fletcher Todd and his wife Mary Griggs Todd and thier Uncle and Aunt, Robert Todd and his wife Allie Griggs Todd) - we do not know if these other Todds are related.
James Maberry Todd and his wife R.Caroline Craven followed their son, Louis Henry to Navarro County, Texas in the early 1900s, where Louis Henry met his wife Sarah Leota "Sally" Champion (born near Meridian, Mississippi on 06/17/1875 to James Greenbury Champion and Mary Jane Tidwell of Tippah County, Mississippi. Sally is the grandaughter of James M. Champion of TN/KY and Parthena Anderson Champion of TN). James Maberry Todd and R. Caroline Craven Todd later followed Louis and Sallie to Nueces County, Texas. James Maberry Todd died in Portland, Texas and is buried in nearby Gregory, Texas.
I would like to confirm where James M. Todd ( and his father William Todd) came from, and where their descendants went to.
