My paternal 3rd-great grandfather, Albert MOULTON, was born on this date in 1819 in Rutland County, Vermont.  Albert was the son of Selah and Lydia (FENNEL) MOULTON.  Albert married in 1848 to Emeline PHILBRICK, daughter of Joel and Sally (FOX) PHILBRICK.  Emeline was born in 1820.  They had 2 daughters.  Albert went west to California during the Gold Rush period, and last known record is believed to be the 1850 census of Placerville, El Dorado County, California.  One source has him dying May 18, 1864.  Emeline died January 16, 1881, probably Newton County, Indiana.

Travis, we have a Van Ness line also! My line is older, but still. And, you don't see that name very often.

Barbara, Interesting how many lines seem to have crossed. Van Ness is unusual, I haven't traced it back as not direct line, but there are many in the Madison County, Indiana area.
