James Nathan Todd1

M, ID# 5008, b. 5 October 1861, d. 1 May 1898
  • Other Names*: James Todd.
  • Scrapbook*: “James N. Todd, Esq., who has practiced law in this and adjoining counties for the past ten years, and Miss Clara V. Naudain, formerly of this county, will be married at the residence of Miss Naudain’s brother-in-law, Corbet E. Naudain, Esq., in Lansdowne, Pa., on Wednesday, February 7th.”.9
  • Obituary*: "AFTER MORE THAN A YEAR’S ILLNESS,
       "James N. Todd Dies at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore
       "A telegram on Sunday last announced the death of James Nathan Todd, a prominent member of the Caroline bar, at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, in Baltimore. A little over a year ago he was taken ill. His affliction, which was of the stomach, caused indigestion in its worst form, and he suffered much pain. A visit to the hospital during the latter part of April, ’97, afforded only temporary relief, and all the spring and summer he continued to grow weaker. An operation being necessary he returned to the hospital, where an eminent specialist treated him. Twice the surgeon’s knife had to be used, and from the last operation the patient derived much benefit. He returned to Denton in November, and he and his friends had strong hope that he would soon be himself again. Some weeks ago, however, the manifestations of the old disease were noticed, and Mr. Todd was again compelled to keep his room. He was again taken to the hospital, but grew rapidly worse. His condition was so weak that it was deemed inadvisable to subject him to another operation, and death came as a benison [sic] after so much suffering.
       "The deceased was the second son of the Rev. Robert W. Todd, a Methodist Episcopal minister, and a former citizen of this county. He was born near Denton on October 5th, 1861. He attended the Seminary at Felton and the Academy at Dover, and subsequently taught school in Delaware. At the April term of court, 1883, he was admitted to the Caroline bar, and has since practiced in this and other courts. He was regarded as a careful and able attorney, and had an extensive practice. He was a commissioner in chancery in this court for several year. In politics Mr. Todd was a Republican, and in 1887 was a candidate for State’s Attorney. He was defeated by Henry R. Lewis, Esq., the Democratic nominee. In August, 1885, Mr. Todd leased the American Union from the late John H. Emerson, and conducted the newspaper business for several months, being succeeded by Messrs. F. C. & H. E. Ramsdell
       "Mr. Todd was twice married, his first wife being Miss Ella Jump, a daughter of Register of Wills Robert J. Jump, and his widow was Miss Clara Naudain, of Philadelphia, and a grand-niece of United States Senator Naudain, of Delaware. Dr. Alexander Hardcastle, of this place, is an uncle. James N. Todd, Jr., aged three-and-a-half years, is the only surviving child of the deceased, two others being dead. Prof. John R. Todd, of Washington; Robert M. and George W. Todd, of New York, are brothers of the deceased, and his sisters are Mrs. W. J. Davis, of Federalsburg; Misses Grace, Mary and Alice Todd.
       "The remains were brought to Denton on Monday. Funeral services were held at the late residence of the deceased on Tuesday morning, Rev. Z. H. Webster officiating. The active pall-bearers were Messrs. G. M. Russum, M. B. Stephens, W. D. Taylor, T. Pliny Fisher, W. F. Pennington, and Walter Sparklin, the members of the bar being the honorary pall-bearers."10
  • Note*: • He was from Denton, Maryland, where he and Clara resided when he died.
    • A newspaper obituary says he was born on 5 Oct 1861, but his Find A Grave memorial (and his tombstone pictured thereon) say 15 Oct 1861.)11,12,13

They were at work northeast of Burt, and Oscar by some means put his hand near some tearing hooks, which caught it and scraped every bit of flesh and tissue from the front of the hand, besides tearing out the bones. The injured man was brought to Burt, but too late for the train and had to lay over till Saturday before getting home. Drs. Morse and Pride were called and Sunday amputated the hand at the wrist.
