About Obed Foote

Moses Foote lived in that part of Waterbury, Conn., now called Plymouth. We find that for many years before his death in 1770. he and his second wife, and several oif their children were members of the church at Plymouth. Among these was Obed Foote, the youngest son, born November 25, 1741. He became in love with the minster's daughter, Mary Todd, then 19 years of age. He was only 20, and they were married in 1761. Eleven children were the fruit of this happy marriage. Her father, rev. Samuel Todd, was a graduate of Yale, pastor of the church at Plymouth for 25 years, and a chaplain in the Continental army in the Revolution, and afterwards the first pastor of the Church at No. Adams, Berkshire county, Mass. Of Obed's four brothers three were in the Revolutionary service. One, David, was killed by the British in their attack on Fairfield, Ct. Another, Ebenezer, died in the army, and each of these had a son in the service. While these brothers were in the Revolutionary army, Obed, the youngest son, remained at home to care for the widowed mother, then 70 years of age, and his young family, among whom was Samuel Foote, born April 7, 1770, at Plymouth, Conn. who was in later years one of the pioneers of Sherburne and Plymouth, NY
