EDWARD R. TODD.

EDWARD R. TODD, son of David C. and Mary C. (Russell) Todd, was born in Argyle, Washington county, N. Y. February 17, 1844. His parents were farmers and until he reached his majority he lived on the farm, attending the schools of the vicinity and later the commercial school at Poultney, Vermont, from which he was graduated. When a young man he learned the carpenter's trade which he followed for many years. In 1872 he came to Saratoga Springs and worked at his trade until 1881. In this year he bought the wholesale and retail lumber business of A. W. Wright at the intersection of Division and Walworth streets. Mr. Todd has since conducted this business, employing several men and dealing in all kinds of builders' materials and supplies. He has been recognized as one of the leading business men of Saratoga Springs, is a staunch Democrat in politics and has been serving as street commissioner since the spring of 1897. He holds membership in the Royal Arcanum.

In 1871 Mr. Todd married Clementine Langworthy Woodaid, and their daughter is the wife of W. B. Milliman of Saratoga Springs. On both the paternal and maternal sides Mr. Todd is of Puritan ancestry. His grandfather was John Todd, whose father, also John, was a Revolutionary soldier.
