Charles Hagaman family - 1880 Livingston County, MO

Today I sourced the 1880 census record of the Charles HAGAMAN family of Rich Hill Township, Livingston County, Missouri. Charles was my paternal 2nd-great granduncle, married to Lydia MOULTON. Lydia was the daughter of Albert and Emeline (PHILBRICK) MOULTON.

In 1880, Charles was listed as "C. Hagaman", farmer, age 35, born New York, with his father born in New York and his mother born in Vermont. His wife, Lydia, was listed as age 31, born in Illinois, with father born in Vermont and mother born in Ohio. The rest of their children were listed erroneously as having their father born in Illinois and mother born in New York. Obviously the enumerator switched the locations of Charles and Lydia's birth. Their children were all listed as being born in Missouri, and included : Clara, aged 11; Lydia, aged 9; Wallace, aged 7; Charles, aged 4; and Nettie, aged 2. The name of the last daugther was a bit hard to read, so Nettie is my best guess.

In the 1870, the family was living in Chillicothe Township, Livingston County, Missouri. I have not found them in any later census records yet. Charles was a Civil War veteran, serving with the 18th New York Infantry.

Charles S. Hagaman b. November 16, 1844 Rochester, Monroe County, New York, d. after 1880 census, m. February 1868 Alexandria, Ohio to Lydia Moulton. Lydia b. ca. 1849 either Ohio or Illinois, d. October 17, 1916 Livingston County, Missouri. Their children :
i. Clara Hagaman b. ca. 1869 Missouri, d. after 1880 census
ii. Lydia Hagaman b. ca. 1871 Missouri, d. after 1880 census
iii. Wallace Hagaman b. ca. 1873 Missouri, d. after 1880 census
iv. Charles Hagaman b. ca. 1876 Missouri, d. after 1880 census
v. Nettie Hagaman b. ca 1878 Missouri, d. after 1880 census

Quick search finds others with queries stating that parents of Livonia Sherman who married David Hagaman was Shubael Sherman.

One of Shubael's sons, Lorenzo, married Sophia Moulton, daughter of Selah and Lydia (Fennel) Moulton, grandparents of Lydia Moulton who married Charles Sherman Hagaman.

Looks like these families may have traveled together.
