Moulton Research

I answered an email this morning that had been setting in my inbox for a couple months regarding the MOULTON family.  The lady is also a descendant of Selah and Lydia (FENNEL) MOULTON.  Hopefully we can tear down some of the brickwalls together.

She didn't indicate which line was hers, but mine is from their son Albert.  Albert has been somewhat of a mystery man, disappearing during the Gold Rush and heading for California.  I believe I have found him in the 1850 census of El Dorado County, living as a miner.  However, there are other Albert Moulton's in California at the same time, so I don't know for sure.

Albert MOULTON was born May 10, 1819 in Rutland County, Vermont, the son of Selah and Lydia (FENNEL) MOULTON.  He married in 1848 to Emeline PHILBRICK, daughter of Joel and Sally (FOX) PHILBRICK.  They had two daughters: Clara b. September 1843 and Lydia b. January 1849.  Notice that the date of marriage must be off.

Clara married John Adam METZNER and lived in Jay County, Indiana.  Lydia married Charles Sherman HAGAMAN and lived in Livingston County, Missouri.
