Justus Todd

Justus Todd6, (Asa5, Gershom4, Gershom3, Michael2, Christopher1) born June 24, 1785, died Feb. 27, 1862, at Ellington, N. Y., married first, April 8, 1807, Cyrene, daughter of Isaac and Mary (Studley) Damon, of Chesterfield, Mass., who was born Oct. 2, 1787, died June 30, 1825. He married second, Mrs. Jemima (Hayden) Shaw, daughter of Caleb and Jemima (Damon) Hayden, she being a cousin to his first wife. She died in 1853, at Ellington, N. Y.

Soon after his second marriage they removed to New York Sate, first to Cattaraugus County, thence a little later to Ellington, Chautauqua County, N. Y. He was a Universalist minister which did not please his father at all. It is supposed that this fact may have been partly the cause of his removal to New York State in 1831.
