WILLIAM TODD
1752-1816


WILLIAM TODD SR. WAS BORN AROUND 1752 PROBABLY IN THE ST. ANDREW'S PARISH IN THE STATE OF GEORGIA.
WILLIAM TODD WAS THE ONLY SON OF JOHN TODD JR. AS EVIDENCED IN JOHN TODD JR.'S LAST WILL AND
TESTAMENT. THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF JOHN TODD DATED APRIL 10, 1784 DEVISES A TRACT OF 200
ACRES OF LAND TO MY ONLY SON WILLIAM TODD. THIS PROPERTY WAS COMPILED OF TWO TRACTS OF LAND
CONTAINING 100 ACRES EACH. ONE FROM JOHN TODD JR.'S FATHER LAND GRANT AND THE OTHER FROM JOHN
TODD JR.'S LAND GRANT. BOTH TRACTS WERE BOUNDED ON THE NORTH BY THE SOUTH NEWPORT RIVER.

MARRIED AROUND 1775 TO MARY _____________. THE RECORDS FOR ST. ANDREW'S PARISH WERE BURNED IN A
FIRE AT THE COURTHOUSE IN DARIEN, GA. THE COUNTY SEAT.

WILLIAM TODD SR. WAS OLD ENOUGH TO HAVE PARTICIPATED IN THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. NO RECORD OF
HIS PARTICIPATION HAS BEEN FOUND. IT HAS BEEN SUGGESTED THAT HIS FAMILY WERE OF THE QUAKER BELIEF1.
BRITISH FORCES OVER RAN THIS AREA IN NOVEMBER OF 1778. MANY OF THE RESIDENTS FLED THIS INVASION
INTO FLORIDA AND SOUTH CAROLINA. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT WILLIAM TODD AND FAMILY WERE AMOUNG THESE
REFUGEES.

MARY TODD THE WIDOW OF JOHN TODD JR. MADE A DEED OF LOVE IN LIBERTY COUNTY TO HER GRANDCHILDREN,
JOHN, JEMINA, WILLIAM AND ANN TODD, THIS WAS DONE ON DECEMBER 14, 1786. THESE WERE THE CHILDREN OF
WILLIAM TODD SR.

WILLIAM TODD SR. AND MARY SOLD TO DAVID DELEGAL 40 ACRES OF LAND. THIS LAND ADJOINED TO THE LANDS
OF JAMES NEPHEW. THIS SALE TOOK PLACE ON FEBRUARY 18, 1790 IN MCINTOSH COUNTY GEORGIA2.

AFTER THIS SALE OF LAND NO RECORDED RECORDS OF WILLIAM TODD CAN BE FOUND THIS COULD BE IN PART
DUE TO THE FIRE IN THE COURTHOUSE AT DARIEN, GA.
