do believe there is a wrong merge here somewhere, I have been working on my family tree for 16 years now and I have in my family tree maker software that Thomas todd is my 11th great grandfather and on here it has changed to Captain Thomas Todd, Sr is your 6th cousin 10 times removed's husband. ????????????????
Cathy this is your path to Capt Thomas Todd
Do you by chance have a path from your software showing a different connection
From all my records in my family tree software ,im related to him thru his daughter Isabella Minor Todd,her daughter Ann Madison,then Her son James stodgill,his son James stodgill,his son Francis sturgill SR,his son Joel Cass sturgill, then his daughter Catherine Ann Sturgill,then her son Isaac Franklin Weaver, then his daughter Charity Catherine Weaver,then her daughter Effie Mae Malone,her son Albert Weldon may, his son William Clifford may, Me Kathy Darlene May Deyoe
Ok I went up the path until I got to Ann Madison I found this
So her mom is not showing as Isabella Todd
I did find a Isabella Minor Madison and reviewing some of the revisions I found this

Isabella Minor Madison is Dorothy Willard's 7th great grandmother.
Dorothy Willard (Duncan) -John Henry Duncan, Dorothy’s father-Emma Whitman, John Henry’s mother- Mary Jane Stodghill, Emma’s mother- Joel Stodghill, Mary’s father- Durette Stodghill, Joel’s father- Joel Stodghill, Durette’s father- James Stodghill, Joel’s father- Ann Madison, James’ mother- Isabella Minor Todd, Ann’s mother
Great Grandmother of President Madison
www.jmu.edu/madison/family/familytree.htm has a document in the form of a family ancestral tree in President James Madison's own hand that claims one of his great grandparents as Isabella Minor Todd.
Since he writes his wife's name as D.P. Todd and we know that Dorothea Payne was married first to John Todd, then we can assume the same order of naming was used for his great grandmother. So Isabella was not a Todd, and since middle names were not used then we can assume she was a Minor, if she was married only once previously.
This family outline is reproduced in "Genealogies of Virginia Families," Vol III, (William & Mary Quarterly) opposite p. 523.
Isabella WAS THE DAUGHTER OF EITHER THOMAS MINOR OR JOHN MINOR
When she married John Madison, she had a son named Thomas Todd.
This RootsWeb entry says she is the daughter of Thomas Todd 1619-09-12 Gloucester ENG + Anna Gorsuch, but that seems unlikely given the above.
Genforum message 28 has an excerpt from "The American Genealogist" demonstrating that Isabel was not a daughter of Thomas Todd.
