Andrew Todd was a member of the firm of A. & I. Todd, merchants. At an early period, Andrew Todd had secured a monopoly of the fur trade on the Mississippi River, which he acquired from Casondelet, the Governor of New Orleans, who jealously guarded his rights in the premises. On this occasion he acted for the house in subscribing ten guineas [to the St. Gabriel street church building fund]. On all subsequent occasions, his brother Isaac Todd took the lead in public matters, pertaining to both church and state.
