      Farrington Todd appears as Todd-7392 and Todd-3940. Horace is at Todd-6691, and Horace's presumed brother, Augustus, is Todd-5192.

      I have Farrington in Whitehall NY in 1805, which indicates he was moving west. 1820 -40 censuses are outlined on Todd-7392. Other than those I don't have anything concrete except the names of Horace's children and down his children's lines.  Who would name a son Farrington if it wasn't a family name?

      I also wonder about the death record - Farrington has been misspelled so many times it could easily be taken for Jonethan. I'd love to see the original record.

      I think Pip is right, I would go with Johnethan being the father and maybe Farrington being a sibling or Great grandfather. see the link, "Michigan Deaths and Burials, 1800-1995," database, FamilySearch(
