Benjamin Todd may have held land in Clinton, Jones Co GA, but he settled in the area known as Devils Half Acre, which straddled the Putnam and Jones border, right in the very heart of "Uncle Remus Country". As late as the 1980s the brick-lined basement of the house he built there was still extant. Benjamin outlived all three of his sons, finally dying at the age of 75 after being struck by a falling tree. Clues from Benjamin's will and the Georgia Land Lottery lists give evidence that all seven of Benjamin's children had children of their own, but only the following are known to this researcher currently:

Green/Greer? Although John B. Todd's wife is noted as Elizabeth Green in the Williams book, a family bible kept by Nora Jurney has the following notations: Elizah Greer died January 5, 1838 Elizabeth M. Greer died March 9, 1833 Ann B. Greer died June 4th 1831 Elisha Greer is noted right after John B. Todd on an Putnam County tax list. (The Union Hill community straddles the border between Jones and Putnam, and its border seemed to have a somewhat flexible quality in the early years.) Another piece of evidence is that John and Elizabeth are keeping a five year old girl named Rebecca Greer in 1850, the final letter clearly being an "r". At least three of John B. Todd's sons served in the Confederate forces. Elijah enlisted 4 Mar 1862, as a private in Co. F 45th Georgia Volunteers, "the Gray Infantry" (also known as Co B 12th GA Vol), and was eventually appointed Sargent. He died of Gastritis in General Hospital at Camp Winder, Richmond VA 10/3/1863, and was buried in Hollywood Cemetery.
