The Hanna hoiise is still one of the landmarks of that town. It is a large house, built in the colonial style, and stands facing the entrance of the bridge across the Ken- tucky river, between North and South Frankfort. Hanna was a lawyer. He built at his own cost the Episcopal church in Frankfort.
He was generous and philan- thropic, and was a man of broad and liberal views. Hunt, of Lexington, Kentucky, but he had no children by either marriage, and his heir was Hunt Keynolds, a nephew of his second wife. Her husband, Wilson Merrill, was of St. Joseph, Missouri. He died in Frankfort, Kentucky. He started to return to his home in Frankfort, Kentucky, but was taken ill at Bedford, Pennsylvania, where he remained till his death. He was buried at Bedford. He is remembered as a young man of great promise. He was graduated in law at Litchfield, Connecticut, where was the foremost law school of that time, in the early spring of , and began at once the practice of his profession in Lexington, Kentucky.
He en- listed in the summer of as an ensign in the local military company which was called into service on the outbreak of the war of During the next winter he was promoted to a captaincy of the Twenty-eighth Infantry, May, , and was appointed aide-de-camp and assistant inspector-general May 20, , on General William Henry Harrison's staff, in which capacity he served at the Battle of the Thames, October, He was appointed Xovember 1, , assistant inspector-general with the rank of major, and was assigned to duty in the eighth district, comprising the states of Kentucky and Ohio, and the territories of Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and Missouri.
He resigned his commission in , and resumed the practice of law in Frankfort, Kentucky. In he was, for a few months, Secretary of State in the Administra- tion of Governor Madison, who died soon after his inauguration. In he abandoned the practice of law, and settled on a fine farm called "Stockdale" in Shelby county, Kentucky, which land had been surveyed for, and patented to his wife's father, Governor Isaac Shelby, in April, It was during his administration of the latter office that President Monroe made the declaration in regard to the necessity of non-interference in American affairs by European powei's, which has since been known as the Monroe doctrine.
He returned from Bogota in On his way home in a United States frigate he was attacked by yellow fever when off Santiago, Cuba. His life was despaired of, and he was landed at Charlestown, South Carolina, to die. It is further worthy of note that all of his children had dark hair, and that among his descendants, which have now reached to the fifth generation, red heads occasionally appear, which can only be traced to Colonel Todd. A stay of six weeks in Charlestown so far recruited his health that he was able to undertake the journey of six hundred miles on horseback to his Ken- tucky home, where his fine blue-grass farm became noted as a model of agricul- tural management, as well as the seat of a gracious hospitality.
During the Presidential campaign of Colonel Todd spent many months in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he edited the "Republican," and took an im- portant part in promoting the candidacy of his old commander. General William Henry Harrison. President Harrison lived but one month after his inaugura- tion, but John Tyler, his successor, carried out Harrison's wishes in appointing Colonel Todd Minister to Russia, which position he held from to During the next Administration, which was democratic in politics, he held no office, but in President Fillmore appointed him one of the commis- sioners to treat with the Indians of western Texas and New Mexico, a region which had but lately come under our control, and which was inhabited by the fiercest and most untamable savages which have ever been wards of the gov- ernment of the United States.
While he held that position he made his home at Marshall, Texas, where he lived till , when he returned to Kentucky, settled at Owensboro, and was appointed by President Lincoln Assessor of Interaal Revenue for the district of western Kentucky. His wife was the youngest daughter of Isaac Shelby, the first governor of Kentucky, and a granddaughter of General Evan Shelby, who was in command of all the troops which were actively engaged in the hard-fought battle, and the important victory over the Indians, known as the "Battle of Point Pleasant," or the "Battle of the Great Kanawha," which was fought at the confluence of the Ohio and Kanawha rivers, October 10, Theodore Koosevelt, in his history of the "Winning of the West," says that Evan Shelby was a stout old Marylander of Welsh blood, and that his son, Isaac Shelby, a stalwart, stern- visaged young man, was a subaltern in his father's company, but was put at its head when, upon the wounding of Colonel John Field, the command of all the forces engaged devolved upon Evan Shelby.
General Andrew Lewis was the commander of the expedition, but he was not in the field during the fighting. The Shelbys were at this time citizens of the debatable land claimed by Vii'ginia and North Carolina, which afterward became the eastern part of the state of Tennessee, and Isaac Shelby was, in , made county lieutenant of Sullivan county, a part of that territory.
He removed to Kentucky, of which he became the first governor l 3, and was again governor He was born in Maryland, December 11, , and died in Kentucky, July 18, A romantic story is told of the meeting of Letitia Shelby, the youngest daughter of Isaac Shelby, with Charles Stewart Todd, who afterward became her husband. After the disastrous battle of the River Raisin, Upper Canada, January 22, , General Winchester, who was in command, sent Captain Todd with dispatches to Governor Shelby, apprising him of the disaster to the Kentucky troops.
After a journey of great hardship and privation through pathless forests in the dead of winter, Todd arrived at the executive mansion at Frankfort to find the governor at the theater. They told of the defeat and capture of five Kentucky regiments, and almost every person in the audience had a relative or a friend whose life was in jeopardy. The whole theater sat in suspense while the gov- ernor perused them, and the suspense but grew greater when, burying his face in his hands, he gave them to his secretary that he might read them aloud.
But the sad tale was no new one to the messenger. During his long jour- ney he had become habituated to the moving details, and his wandering gaze being soon arrested by the sight of Letitia Shelby, seated in her father's box, he fell at once a victim to her charms. Her portrait remains to testify to her great beauty, and she, on her part, found the herald a young hero, who captivated her fancy, so that a mutual attachment was then formed which led to their marriage at the executive mansion three years later.
She was fourteen years old when they met, having been bom June 11, , and she died July 22, Colonel Todd outlived her nearly three years, dying while making a visit at Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He and his wife lie buried at Elmwood cemetery, Owensboro, Kentucky. The mother and the children were buried on the Todd farm in Woodford county, Kentucky, near Versailles. John Han-is Todd XVIII 10 early embraced a political career, and, dur- ing the last six years of his life, became one of the most influential men in his native state.
Kentucky was then suifering greatly from the general financial wreck which, throughoTit the coimtry, followed the short period of inflation after the close of the war with Great Britain in The banks were ruined every- where, and financial distress was widespread. Todd, who was elected in and in to the state legislature to represent the counties of Franklin and Owen, rendered great service in bringing order out of the commercial chaos.
During his second term in the legislature he succeeded in procuring the repeal of the oppressive and barbarous law which pei-mitted the imprisonment of debtors. His third campaign in was hotly contested. He threw himself into the conflict with great ardor, and won his election, but he had overtaxed his streng-th, and died suddenly from exhaiistion soon after the close of the campaign. He had the qualities requisite for political success, and had he lived, would doubtless have reached a very high position in the service of the state.
William Starling and his wife removed in to Kentucky, and settled in Mercer county, near Harrodsburg. He was a large property owner, and was engaged in mercantile pursuits on an extended scale. He represented Mercer county in the state legislature, and, December 18, , was appointed assistant judge for his district.
