Todd/Gordon family, Belfast & Ballydare

Post by john5859 » 05 Feb 2011, 18:59

I'm looking to connect with anyone who might have information on the family of John Todd and Jane Gordon. They emigrated to Canada, probably in the 1830s and died in Ontario. They may have emigrated via New York. Their children appear to have been:

Elizabeth Ann, b. abt 1809 Ballydare/Belfast
Ellen, b.abt 1811, Antrim
Jane, b. 1812, Belfast
James, b. abt 1813, Antrim
Margaret, b. abt 1815, Antrim
Samuel, b. 1817, Belfast; d. 1886, Ontario, Canada
John, b. abt 1821, Antrim
Jane (Jean), b. abt 1823

I am a descendant of Samuel Todd of the family you mention. The family finally settled in Joyceville and then moved to Pittsburgh, Frontenac, Ontario. What information are you looking for?

I am a descendant of the youngest daughter (not on your list) Elizabeth Ann b. 1826 Ballymena, Antrim. and also have some information about Jane b. 1823.

John Todd was born about 1780, Ireland and died 16 Nov 1851 in Lanark Township, Lanark County, Canada West (Ontario).
Lanark Observer newspaper (Nov 18, 1851):
Death - In Lanark Twp. on 16th, John Todd, formerly of Belfast Ire in the 71st year of his age.
He emigrated to Canada about 1828 and settled in Lanark Twp, Concession 4, lot 4E in 1828.
I have further information of land purchases made by John Todd if you are interested.

Jane (Jean) Gordon. born about 1784, Ireland died at age 67 of "a heavy cold" sometime in 1851 (in the 12 months prior to the Census date of 12 Jan. 1872). She was listed in the household of her youngest daughter Elizabeth Ann Todd who was married to Matthew Ballantine.
