Some researchers have him b. in Rowan County, NC and others in Madison County, KY. Both Reuben and William stated in census records they were born in GA. Resided in Rutherford County, TN near Big Springs. Census: William 62GA, Jane 59 KY, Alexander 24 - RU CO HH# 791/609. Marriage bond of William Todd and Jane Douglass, both of Madison County, dated Jan 10, 1804 and signed by William Todd and William Glenn. Robert Elkins m. William and Jane. Previous historians thought that William and Reuben were sons of Mrs. Mary Todd 1762-1866 and therefore uncles to Walker Todd b 1822. Family Finder DNA in 2011 shows that Walker was related to William and Reuben but not so close as uncles to nephew. Though the Family Finder tests were somewhat contradictory, one of the Abel Todd tests showed brotherhood connection to both John Todd b 1770-80 and Reuben Todd b 1785. Edna Todd Lackie wrote in 1985 that she and Jean Douglas Van Meter went looking for William's grave. "I had searched for years with no success. Many old markers had fallen apart. Jean and I started digging around the front of some old ones and dug up enough pieces to put together just like a jigsaw puzzle and there they were, dates and names. It was so exciting for us. In the following fall, my brothers and sisters pooled enough money to make new markers for William, Jane, Levi, and Mary. We set them at their graves on top of the pieces from the old markers. Two hundred years from now, if someone starts digging, will they be surprised!" William was on the 1809/10/11 Rutherford County, TN tax records. He was a 1st Lt in War of 1812 and served in the 2nd RGT of the West Tonsillitis INF from 20-Sep-1814 until 20-Mar-1815. He enlisted under Col Alex Lowry and Cpt James Kincaid, and I have a copy of the CO Muster Roll for this time period. The National Archives in Washington has no record of a Full Pension Application. I have a copy of another document showing his "Cpt discharged him on 07-Dec-1815," for the purpose of obtaining the bounty land to which he may be entitled. The document was signed by William Todd and witnessed by Lewis Harrell,JP. Col Alexander Lowry and Lt Col Leroy Hammons, Designation, 2nd RGTWest TN Militia, Sep 1814/Apr 1815. Men mostly from Davidson, Warren, Humphreys, Lincoln, Maury, Robertson, Smith, Sumner, White, and Williamson Counties. Cpts: James Craig, Thomas Delaney, James Kincaid, John Looney, Gabriel Mastin, Asahel Rains, George Sarver, James Tubb,Thomas Wells, and Joseph N Williamson. Brief History: Part of GenNathaniel Taylor's brigade, this regiment was scattered throughout the Creek territory and the vicinity of Mobile to man the various forts in the region; Forts Jackson, Montgomery, Claiborne, and Pierce. Some of the companies participated in the taking of Pensacola (07-Nov-1814)from Spanish authorities that were accused by Jackson of supporting British troops there. Lowry resigned on 20-Nov-1814 and Lt Col Leroy Hammonds took over as commander. The regiment was plagued by disease during its tenure in the MS Territory. For example, a morning report of Cpt Asahel Rains on 06-Jan-1815 shows twenty-seven on the sick list and twenty-seven additional men required to take care of the sick (totaling half the company). ____________________________________________ Was a 1st Lieutenant in War of 1812, and served in the 2nd Regiment of the West Tennessee Militia from 20-Sep-1814 until 10-Apr-1815.
