GONE TO HIS REWARD


Death of Japheth Todd, of Andrew County

Japeth Todd [sic], one of the oldest citizens of Andrew county, and a gentleman well known and highly respected throughout the Northwest, died last Sunday morning at his residence, about six miles distant from this city, after a protracted illness of several months. Mr. Todd was born in Estelle county, Kentucky, upon the 4th day of June, 1808. He removed with his parents to Missouri, while yet a child, and lived for a number of years in that large section of country lying north of the Missouri river, at time known as Howard county. Mr. Todd was married in 1838, and seven children were the offspring of the reunion. The mother was called away from earth about a month ago. The father did not long survive this sad bereavement. An insidious disease had for some time been preying upon his vitals, and the loss of his beloved wife hastened his final dissolution. Last Sunday morning he breathed his last, in the blessed hope of an eternity of bliss with the dear ones who had preceded him. Japheth Todd was a gentleman of the old school--an honest, honorable, upright, Christian man. To know him was to respect and love him. The loss of such a man cannot be too sincerely lamented
