The Honourable JOHN TOD
Born in 1791, and <Jrea Augus$*-31st, 1882. He was
the eldest of a large family, of whom the youngest
was Mrs. A. C. Anderson. At 16 he joined the Lord
Selkirk scheme of emigration and went to York
Factory on the Haakon's Bay. He traversed the
entire west to&the Columbia River, becoming in
time a chief factor of the company, spending many
years in the Western Department. His exploits
while in charge of the post at Kamloops are graphically described by Bancroft, and prove him to have
been a man absolutely devoid of fear, as well as
possessed'of great resourcefulness. He was first
" 'in Astoria in 1814 and was early connected with
Fort Vancouver. Tod retired about '48 and settled
at Cadboro Bay, and subsequently was a member
of the Council,.appointed by Governor Blanshard
before leaving for England. He. was a profuse
and interesting letter writer, and, although eccentric in some respects, was a man of kind heart and
generous sentiments.
