|David Samuel Todd and his daughter Mattie (Todd)
Cranor. David Samuel Todd was born 8 Sept 1850 in St. Charles, Hopkins Co.,
the son of William M. and Evaline (Fox) Todd of Hopkins County. On 27
July 1871 in Hopkins County, he married Susan Cornelia Sisk, daughter of
Dorinda Adelaide (Sisk) Todd. Susan always went by Todd, although she was
born before the marriage of Dorinda A. Sisk to Lysander G. "San" Todd. Her
death certificate listed Lysander as her father and Lysander's estate also
included her as an heir in his estate. However, her marriage license lists
her as "Susan C. Sisk". David Samuel Todd died on 13 Nov 1926 at home of
"pneumonia" in St. Charles. He is buried at Suthard's Cemetery (then known
as Gordon Cemetery), Hopkins County.
