PREFACE. 



The book, which is presented to you under the name of 
" Moulton Annals," does not aim to be a complete history of the 
family either in this country or in England. The author spent 
years of his life in collecting material for it, and the editor has 
given many months to the arrangement of that material, and yet, 
in spite of all this, the book is only a beginning. 

The vastness of the task is well-known to all familiar with 
such work, and therefore need not be dwelt upon. 

It was the intention of the author to furnish only a basis for 
more extensive work, to be pursued by some other member of the 
family, and as a foundation, then, rather than a complete struc- 
ture, we beg that it be regarded. 

Errors and inaccuracies will doubtless be found in its pages. 
It can scarcely be otherwise, since we have been obliged in many 
cases to depend upon the private records of individuals, rather 
than the more authentic ones of church or town. Letters from 
other Moultons have been the principal source of information in 
every case, except in Chapters VII and VIII. 

Our hearty thanks are due Mr. Gilman Moulton, of Randolph, 
Vermont, and Gen. R. A. Alger, of Detroit, Michigan, whose 
generosity has enabled us to acquire most of the information 
regarding the descendants of Robert. In this instance, church 
and town records, deeds and tax-lists have furnished us nearly 
all the data. 

The editor desires to acknowledge the courtesy of Mr. Augus- 
tus F. Moulton, of Portland, Maine, in permitting her to use 
material already published by him regarding the descendants of 
John and William. 

We are also indebted to Mr. George H. Moulton, of Haver- 



PREFACE. 4 

hill, Massachusetts, for much of the information concerning the 
descendants of Thomas of York. 

To the unfailing interest and material assistance of Mrs. 
Jennie F. Swallow, of Brooklyn, New York, " Moulton Annals " 
partially owes its successful issue. 

The editor will be grateful to the reader for the correction of 
any errors which he may find in the following pages. 

The work has been a labor of love, and in return we ask 
only your interest and kindly forbearance. 

The Editor.

TO TRACE YOUR ANCESTRY. 

Locating yonr parents by the index, you will find Ids or her individual 
number in front of his name; then look for the same number further for- 
ward under the word children. This will give the name and family of your 
grandparent, ami so on. Illustration: Benjamin M. Moulton (page 105) 
is number 398; the superior figure ", indicates he is in the ninth generation 
from Robert of Salem, the names in parenthesis give the line of descent, 
viz.. his father, grandfather, great grandfather, etc. Turning forward to 
number 398 (page 94) it will be found that the father of number 39S is 
number 232; turn forward again and we find, number 232 (page 79), is 
a son of number 101. Continue in this way until the first generation is 
reached. Reverse this process to trace the children, grandchildren, etc., of 
a given person. 



ANNOUNCEMENT. 



Mr. Henry W. Moulton, the compiler of this genealogy, 
spent many years, as well as a large amount of money in 
collecting material for the "Moulton Annals," and encoun- 
tered the usual discouragement of unanswered letters and lack 
of interest by many whose descendants will wonder why 
their families are not represented. A great deal of the matter 
in this volume could not now be collected, many of the 
records having been destroyed ; hence all Moulton descend- 
ants should feel grateful that the efforts of Mr. Moulton — for 
which he received no compensation — have been the means of 
preserving the foundation for all future histories of the family. 

Had Mr. Moulton lived to have finished this work it 
would undoubtedly have been presented in a more perfect 
shape; but the task of editing and preparing the matter for 
the press was left to other hands. Miss Moulton, in assuming 
this task, after her father's death, took up a burden of which 
few realize the magnitude. Numerous attempts were made 
to secure sufficient subscriptions to guarantee publication but 
not meeting with proper encouragement, the matter was laid 
aside for a few years. 

In assuming the publication of the "Moulton Annals" it 
was not without grave misgivings ; but after a most thorough 
canvass I am now assured of sufficient subscriptions to guar- 
antee against loss, as well as being enabled to add more illus- 
trations than were promised in my prospectus. 

In accordance with my contract, I submit "Moulton An- 
nals" to the public, printed from the manuscript just as I 
received it (excepting the indexes, which were prepared from 



6 ANNOUNCEMENT. 

the printed pages), without revision and with scarcely any 
changes or addition. 

DATA FOR SECOND VOLUME. 

In 1899 Mr. William Cleveland Moulton, of this city, not 
knowing of this work, began the collection of data for a similar 
publication, and sent circular letters and blanks to all the 
addresses (so far as he could procure) of Moultons and Moulton 
descendants in the United States. These brought in many 
returns which have been placed in my hands and will be 
used as a basis for a second volume. 

Every person who can furnish additional information is 
requested to send it to me at once, giving the page in 
"Moulton Annals" where the persons to whom they refer (or 
their ancestors) can be found. 

Since the death of Mr. Henry W. Moulton, in 1896, many 
changes have taken place in the various families of Moulton 
and Moulton descendants ; also numerous old records have been 
unearthed which probably would make some corrections as well 
as additions to the present volume. You who are interested and 
will sooner or later be sorry for any neglect of these matters, 
are earnestly requested to send me copies of your Bible records, 
old papers, wills, deeds, etc., that will give additional information. 
Any errors you may notice (no genealogy was ever compiled 
that was free from errors) should be corrected at once for the 
benefit of your posterity ; they will appreciate it even if you are 
not particularly interested.

CHAPTER I. 

THE FAMILY NAME. 

The name of Moulton is borne by many people living in the 
United States, England and Australia. It is still a well-known 
patronymic in France, a country where it was known to fame early 
in the eleventh century. 

When King William, the Xorman, embarked for England, 
Sir Thomas de Moulton was one of the brave knights who accom- 
panied him and fought at the Battle of Hastings, A. D. 1066, thus 
with that king, conquering what became his own landed estate in 
the British Isles. In or about the year 1100, the town of Moulton 
was founded in England. 

The origin of the name is not fully settled. Numerous 
traditions have been heard and given more or less credence by 
persons interested, but none of them bear close scrutiny. A 
member of that branch of the family who had been engaged in 
the goldsmith and silversmith business in America for at 
least six generations, claimed that the name originated in the 
trade of the family, viz.. : the working of "molten" metals. 
This was partially corroborated by an English clergyman, 
who knew of Moultons in Birmingham who still pursued 
this ancient trade of the family. But investigation showed 
that no Moulton emigrant brought over the trade, but that 
it was the second generation in America that took up the 
business, viz: William, born in Hampton, N. H., who settled 
in Newbury in 1682, where he really originated the business, 
calling to his aid such expert emigrant help as he could 
command. 

It was further ascertained that the Moulton name was in 
use before molten metals were fused by any of the family in 



10 MOULTON ANNALS. 

England; also that comparatively few of the name ever pur- 
sued it as a trade in England. 

A branch of the family lived upon the river "Moule," in 
England, and this circumstance was suggested as accounting 
for the name. 

Of course all such fancies must give way to the fact that 
the name itself was imported into England. Whether it origi- 
nated in France, or was brought to that country, is quite uncer- 
tain, but it would seem probable that the two French words 
which compose the name, "Moult" meaning many and "on" 
meaning they or at a more remote period "the people" may an- 
swer for the origin. 

Even if you take two other French words, the solution is 
not very improbable. "Moule" may be translated a mould or a 
model, and "ton," first-class. It might mean "many people" 
or a first-class model. At present, we have not advanced be- 
yond conjecture. 

Having the pure name to follow through eight hundred 
years of French, English and American history, it is of more 
importance to ascertain what families bearing similar names 
are really kindred to that of Moulton than to search out the 
remote origin of the name. It is not proposed to pursue the 
history of these kindred names or to enquire when, if ever, 
they "branched off" from what we suggest may have been 
the original. 

The names which follow resemble the one under con- 
sideration : — Multon ; Moulson ; Molton ; Xoulton : Poulton ; 
Doulton ; Mawlton ; Houlton ; Coulton and Boulton, not to 
include such names as Moulthrop, Moreton, Morton ct omncs 
genera. 

In the old English records, the name of Moulton was often 
spelled by dropping either the o or the u. 

Sir Thomas Moulton, had son Sir Thomas Mutton, and the 
following generations in several instances continued to drop 
the o, notwithstanding that the town in which they lived had 
taken its name from the head of the family, and has always 
been spelled Moulton, from A. D. uoo to A. D. 1900. 



THE FAMILY NAME. II 

During the period when the o was omitted in England, 
many members of the same family continued to spell in the 
ancient manner, Moulton. 

Indeed, some descendants of those who had dropped the o, 
resumed its use. 

The change of the name to Multon, grew out of its French 
pronunciation, viz.: "Moolton" ; this, in England, upon the 
Scotch border, could be compassed without using the o, and 
we have it, abbreviated, Multon. 

It is important to deal with only one other misspelling of 
the name. Molt on is simply an improperly spelled word. Very 
often, the old English clerks in making records, misspelt the 
name as above. In very many of the New England towns, 
during the Revolutionary war, when the name of Moulton was 
copied upon the records, in the lists of soldiers and among the 
citizens and town officer;-, it was misspelt, Molton. In some 
instances, this incorrect spelling was incorporated into im- 
portant documents, and thereafter the victim of the error 
would adopt it instead of correcting it. Generally, however, 
that method of spelling the name has been only temporarily 
used, all the letters in the ancient name being resumed by 
descendants. 

No Scotch or Irish people bear the name of Moulton so far 
as the writer can learn. A careful examination of all the town 
and city directories of importance in Scotland and Ireland did 
not result in discovering the name of Moulton in any one of 
them. In the United States may be found, here and there, col- 
ored people by the name of Moulton. Africans bearing Chris- 
tian names have generally taken these from families where 
they or their parents served as hirelings or slaves. Very rarely 
is the barbarous name of the Dark Continent retained in a 
civilized country. 

General Fremont informed the writer that he had with 
him in the conquest of New Mexico, a brave and reliable 
French Canadian explorer by the name of Moulton. This 
shows that some French emigrant had taken the name to 



12 MOULTON ANNALS. 

Canada, while more recently it has been brought directly from 
France to the United States, by French people. 

Burke in his "Extinct Peerage"edition of 1883 — deals 
with the names Moulton and Mult on as the same and regards 
the families as of the same blood, through all the twenty-five 
generations in England. 

Edmondson in his work "Heraldry" — an English standard 
volume — discards the spelling Multon and Molton, altogether, 
and in dealing with the nine generations of Feudal lords Moul- 
ton, uses only the original and correct form. Moulton. 

Collins also gives an account of the same noble family, as 
de Moulton and de Multon, but likewise discards the Multon 
and employs only Moulton in all the generations of his stand- 
ard book, "English Peerage." 

It may be regarded as a verity not debatable that all those 
historic "de Moultons," "de Multons" and Moultons are one and 
the same in blood and lineage ; therefore, I prefer to follow 
Edmondson and Collins in the orthorgraphy of the name. 



CHAPTER II. 

GLIMPSES OF MOULTOX HISTORY. 

The year 1066 was not only memorable for the conquest 
of England and establishment of William as king, but as the 
date of founding many noble families in England. Here his- 
tory introduces to us the first English Moulton. Although 
Norman by birth, he proved his right and desire to be an Eng- 
lishman. 

Looking hack through the long vista of eight and one quar- 
ter centuries, we see him there, mounted and armed "cap-a- 
pie," with broadsword and battle-axe or with spear, riding 
full tilt at the brave and hardy Saxons who are fiercely defending 
England, their native land. 

As the Normans move on to the assault, loud and far re- 
sound the bray of horns, the shock of lances, the mighty 
strokes of maces and the quick clashing of swords. The tide 
sweeps on and the Saxons fall back, pressed by the foe. Once 
more they beat back the enemy and the waves of battle recede 
till the Normans, at first victorious, are crushed into the fosse, 
crossed in triumph, a little time before. 

Thus, advantages alternate between Saxon and Norman 
from morn till eve, when the unfortunate Harold, weak and 
wounded, is conquered. Only a few weeks before, he had met 
the powerful army of Scandinavian invaders, in the North, 
and destroyed it. Today, he is himself destroyed. In the his- 
tory of the world, no battle more decisive for human destiny, 
was ever fought. 

The blood here intermingled was the seed of the two most 
magnificent nations ever known to the world — England and 
the United States of America. 

Notwithstanding the years of tyranny and oppression 



14 MOULTON ANNALS. 

which afflicted the Saxons, there came a time when their rights 
were secured and there were no longer proud Norman and ser- 
vile Saxon, but all were Englishmen. 

It was on this memorable field of Hastings that the first 
Moulton pre-empted a homestead in England, and for eight 
hundred and twenty-five years, he and his descendants have 
inhabited and honored the land they helped to conquer. For 
service in this battle, Sir Thomas de Moulton was rewarded 
with great tracts of land in Lincolnshire. Afterwards, im- 
mense estates were acquired in other countries by marriage, and 
otherwise. 

This Lincolnshire land was much of it forest and deso- 
late moor, when Sir Thomas de Moulton took possession. Here 
he built him castles and religious establishments, maintain- 
ing a retinue of soldiers, laborers and priests. 

Within thirty years a village had sprung up, the town 
being known by the name 'Moulton." As early as A. I). I ioo, 
this place had secured by its founder, grants from the king for 
the establishment of public markets and all necessary munici- 
pal privileges. The day of shops had not then arrived. 

Sir Thomas essayed to live in the proud style of the Nor- 
man noblemen of his time, but even thus early we can perceive 
other characteristics in him which have appeared in the 
twenty-five generations of his descendants. 

He was eminently practical. He at once interested Saxon 
and Norman to hold estates in severalty in his own town, 
and thus to contribute to its development. 

He was a religious man. but not a fanatic. He was patri- 
otic, and to the day of his death was ready to build up his 
town and country, as well as to pray or fight for it on short 
notice. 

But neither this first Sir Thomas de Moulton. nor any 
one of his successors during the two hundred and fifty years, 
while they held the peerage, was ever known to be servile or 
craven to any potentate, whether king of England or emperor 
of France. As will appear, their relations with royalty were 
sometimes intimate. When serving the sovereign, each in turn 



GLIMPSES OF MOULTON HISTORY. 1 5 

was faithful and loyal, but he was in no sense a courtier. These 
ancient Moultons did not fawn or flatter. If the royal inter- 
ests required change of management, they never hesitated to 
remonstrate or propose new methods ; nor was their brusque 
integrity misunderstood. 

It will appear by the subjoined records that their services 
as military and civil officers were in demand during the ten 
dynasties of English kings under whom they served as nobles 
of the realm. 

An examination of all the early Norman manuscripts, 
hereafter, may reveal the rank of Sir Thomas at the great bat- 
tle of Hastings. At present, we draw our inferences from the 
reward which he received, that his services must have been 
great and bravely rendered. A large township, bearing his 
name, with noble chapels and castles that braved the storms 
of many centuries were his monuments. 

When an early Sir Thomas de Moulton took his father's 
titles and estates, he signalized his love and honor for his illus- 
trious father, by great funeral ceremonies and a commemora- 
tive gift [See Notes at end of Chapter.] 

Already it would appear that ecclesiastics had been so 
encouraged by the Lords Moulton that they had a firm footing 
in the town. In the chapter house at Spalding, he assembled 
those bishops and friars, and in the presence of his mother, 
brothers and sisters, he bestowed upon the monks of that 
abbey, the Church of Weston. 

A biography of this Sir Thomas de Moulton would doubt- 
give us a romantic story. 

With all the crudeness of society and rancorous feeling 
between the oppressed Saxons and proud Normans, England 
was as full of joy in its religious, military and social life, in the 
twelfth century, as any country in the world, at that time. 
The third Lord of Moulton was Sir Lambert de Moulton, who 
doubtless had a career of more or less renown, in those stirring 
times. 

He was succeeded by Sir Thomas de Moulton of the fourth 
generation of these feudal barons. It seems by the record ap- 



l6 MOULTON ANNALS. 

pended in the "notes" that he paid the crown a large sum of 
money for "wardship" of the daughters of a deceased noble- 
man, and bestowed them in marriage upon his sons Lambert 
and Allan (of the fifth generation in England). 

It would appear that the castles of Egremont and landed 
estates in Cumberland County were acquired by these Moul- 
tons of the fifth generation, and continued as Moulton property 
for several generations thereafter. 

This Sir Thomas of the fourth generation was sheriff 
during the 9th and 10th years of King John's dynasty, and in 
the 15th year of his reign, attended the king in his expedition 
into Poicton. Two years later he was taken in arms with the 
rebellious barons and imprisoned in the Castle of Corff. This 
was the Thomas Moulton whose name appears upon Magna 
Charta as one of the English barons who had wrung this great 
charter of liberty from an unwilling king. He had insisted 
with his brave and patriotic fellow-signers that the king ad- 
here to this charter; but King John attempted to annul it and 
these barons rose against him. Unfortunately Sir Thomas 
was captured. His term of imprisonment ended with the in- 
coming of a new dynasty, at the death of King John. All his 
castles and estates were restored to him. But his troubles 
were not ended. He married a second wife, a widow and 
the mother of the two heiresses whose wardship he had paid 
for in 1,000 marks and whom he had married to his sons. 

The new king, Henry III., commanded the Archbishop of 
York to seize his castles and lands and hold them for damages 
for his boldness in marrying this rich widow with titles and 
estates, without first getting his permission. 

However, Sir Thomas was equal to the occasion in re- 
sources and ability. He gave security and continued in posses- 
sion of lands and castles. He seems to have settled very 
cheaply, his fine for the supposed offense being £ 100 ; and the 
token of a horse in addition satisfied the king and confirmed 
Sir Thomas in the office of forester of Cumberland, which was 
the inheritance of this second wife, Ada. 



GLIMPSES OF MOULTOX HISTORY. \J 

This "castle of Egremont" became Moulton property 
from this time, continuing so for several generations. 

This fourth Sir Thomas continued in offices of various 
kinds for a long period. He lived to a great age and had a 
most romantic career. 

A fifth Sir Thomas de Moulton, Sir Walter Scott took as 
a leading character in his dramatic story of "The Talisman." 
Being a great friend of Richard, Coeur de Lion, of whom he 
had entire confidence, and also possessing great physical 
power, he commanded the admiration and envy of the 
knights at the great tournaments of England. In the Holy 
Land, he was a leading crusader and was, of all the knights, 
the nearest to the king. Indeed, when Richard's sickness laid 
him low, Sir Thomas was the ruler, de facto. 

Sir Walter Scott claims that in his story called "The 
Talisman" some parts are fanciful but that so far as King 
Richard and Sir Thomas Moulton are concerned, he has fol- 
lowed English History. 

No wonder that with the friendship existing between the 
father of this Sir Thomas and Richard of the lion heart, their 
campaigns and crusades together, their enjoyment of the 
great games of England and their undisputed superiority in 
strength and prowess to all other knights in the entire realm — 
no wonder that after the death of his dear friend and sover- 
eign Richard, Sir Thomas, the son, could scarcely endure the 
hated John ruling as king, in Richard's place. 

Well might Thomas Moulton become restless and insubordi- 
nate under King John, who had never had the love or respect 
of Cceur de Lion, his brother — well, I say, since he was the son 
of the only man in England who could rule and over-rule King 
Richard in his feverish moods and disregard an order made by 
him, with impunity. He it was who enjoyed the confidence and 
love of this mighty man. Sir Thomas' sufferings from the wrath 
of King John were soon over, and his little difficulty with Henry 
III. was only a matter of fees. Henry permitted his continu- 
ance in the office of Sheriff of Cumberland for several years, 
also as one of the justices of the King's Court of Common Pleas. 



l8 MOULTON ANNALS. 

Sir Walter Scott, in his fanciful story of "The Talisman," 
so fascinating to readers of several generations, claims to have 
followed history so far as Richard of the Lion-heart and Sir 
Thomas de Moulton are active characters in the story ; this claim 
is true to a certain extent, but Sir Walter made the singular 
mistake of taking the fifth Sir Thomas de Moulton, who had 
become "Lord of Gillesland" and "Lord de Vaux" by marriage 
with Maud de Vaux, heiress of Hubert de Vaux, and only daugh- 
ter of this deceased nobleman, instead of his father, Sir Thomas, 
Lord of Moulton and of Egremont. This fourth Sir Thomas 
was Lord of Moulton by inheritance from three preceding gen- 
erations from about A. D. 1066. He became Lord of Egremont 
by marriage with the widow of Sir Richard de Lucie as has 
already been stated. 

This was the Moulton who was the bosom friend as well 
as companion in arms of Coeur de Lion. 

The Sir Thomas de Moulton, who was Lord of Gillesland 
and de Vaux, was born too late to have been on any campaign 
with Cceur de Lion, his wife, from whom he got these titles, by 
marriage and inheritance from her father, died as the court 
records show just one hundred years after the crusade to which 
Scott refers, viz.: A. D. 1293. Her husband, Sir Thomas de 
Moulton, who was the "De Vaux" and Lord of Gillesland, men- 
tioned by Scott, died in 1270. The mistake was a simple one. 
The achievements which Scott attributes to this fifth Sir Thomas 
should be ascribed to the fourth of the same name. 

To resume the narrative — the fifth Sir Thomas, Lord of 
Gillesland and Lord de Vaux, was a military man whose services 
were in demand with the king. In the forty-second year of the 
reign of King Henry III., he was summoned to do service with 
the other Norman Barons in Scotland. Again in the fifty-fifth 
year of the same reign, he was called to take up arms against 
the Welsh. 

This feudal baron lived in the rude grandeur of the noble- 
men of his time. He was brave, powerful and full of enterprise 
in respect to the improvement of the various manors of which 
he was lord. He died A. D. 1270, and was succeeded by his 



GLIMPSES OF MOULTON HISTORY. 19 

son of the sixth generation, viz., the sixth Sir Thomas de 
Moulton. 

This nobleman inherited still other estates which included 
the whole title to the Barony of Burghand, "divers other con- 
siderable manors." He married Isabel , but died A. D. 

1293. his mother, the beautiful Maud de Vaux, being still alive. 

He was succeeded by his son of the seventh generation — Si r 
Thomas de Moulton. who did his homage the same year, "having 
livery of his lands," viz., the Manor of Downham, in Norfolk, 
the Manor of Burgh, the Manor of Kirk, and the Barony of Gil- 
lesland with divers other estates, all in the County of Cumber- 
land. (The original Moulton castles and estates in Lincolnshire, 
he did not inherit.) 

But alas ! he enjoyed his wealth and power only two years 
when he died A. D. 1295. His widow married Sir John de 
Caster. He was succeeded by his son, the eighth in line. 

Sir Thomas de Moulton, like his ancestors, was a mili- 
tary man as well as a legislator. He was an officer in many en- 
gagements. Under King Edward I. he was summoned to Parlia- 
ment, a peer and lord of the realm as "Baron Moulton of Gil- 
lesland." Upon the accession of a new dynasty under Edward 
II., from the twenty-sixth of August, 1307, to the twenty-sixth 
of November, 1313, we find him in Parliament. During this 
period, his Lordship is again upon the theatre of war in Scot- 
land. Pie, like his fathers, improved his estates by obtaining 
immunities from the crown, such as grants for fairs and mar- 
kets upon his different manors. He died in 1313, leaving, by 
Margaret, his wife, an only daughter and heiress of all his vast 
estates, viz: Margaret de Moulton of the ninth generation, 
who married Randolph de Dacre, Lord Dacre of the North, 
and conveyed her immense estates including the titles and 
honors together with the Barony of Moulton — the original 
from 1066 — to the Dacre family. 

Alas that this noble family of Moultons who had honored 
their country and crown, honored Parliament and the armies of 
England with their renowned deeds, during ten dynasties and for 



20 MOULTON ANNALS. 

two hundred and fifty years, should no longer have a name among 
the peers of England ! 

A Sir Thomas Moulton had been ever ready to obey his 
country's call, from the battle-field of Hastings where he made 
this land his own, through nine generations of brave knights 
bearing that name. 

Noble castles and chapels in many of England's proudest 
counties still stood as monuments to the worthy Moulton knights 
who founded them, but there was no longer a Sir Thomas Moul- 
ton, with his retinue, to enter their portals! 

The Dacre family, noble and of high blood, was worthy to 
succeed and mingle theirs with the blood of that ancient race. 

Margaret Moulton became the mother of a long line of 
Dacres who held this vast Moulton property together for an- 
other period of ten dynasties of English kings. More striking 
still is the fact that they too held the property two hundred and 
fifty years, making five hundred years and twenty dynasties of 
England's kings, under which these vast Moulton estates and 
titles were accumulating and were held together. 

Although the titles to these ancient lands have changed 
owners and the castles changed masters, they still exist and at- 
test the sturdy power of their knightly owners. 

But what of the Moulton's? Were they all dead because 
none survived to legitimately claim the noble titles and estates? 
Hardly. 

From the time of the first Sir Thomas Moulton who founded 
the town bearing his name, about the year uoo, and obtained 
rights from the king to establish markets and fairs within its 
limits, there have been younger brothers of the heir to the grand 
estates, who stepped forth into the ranks of the English people 
and established an honorable name for themselves in every gen- 
eration, since. 

On the death of an early Sir Thomas when the great funeral 
ceremonies were in progress, in the Chapter House at Spalding, 
his son Thomas bestowed a church in the presence of his mother, 
brothers and sisters. Probably most of the heirs to the Moulton 
Barony likewise had brothers who became progenitors of the 



GLIMPSES OF MOULTON HISTORY. 21 

great army of Moultons who now inhabit England, America and 
other parts of the world. 

Thus, from generation to generation, for the first two hun- 
dred and fifty years of the Moultons in England, the Moulton 
families in these great castles were sending out younger sons 
who established branches and their name was becoming well 
known to the people of England. 

Therefore, today, the Moultons of England and America, 
as will appear from the records which follow upon these pages, 
are the successors and true inheritors of whatever was good or 
bad, of honor or dishonor, in the blood of this long line of 
English noblemen. Of course the lineage of eldest sons enjoys 
not only the advantages of the wealth and titles, but of a more 
uniformly recorded history than those who were descendants 
of younger brothers and had only the noble blood. 

In searching the pages of history, for a record of the man- 
ner in which this blood asserted itself, the titular Moultons would 
have great advantages even though their deeds were no more 
meritorious. 

Still, enough is written all along the centuries in English 
history to show that tin- Moultons who did not inherit the titles 
or castles, were a powerful race, ready to serve their God, their 
country and their fellows with ability, bravery and fidelity. Their 
names are written upon the high roll of renown, in church and 
state, in the army and navy, as well as in that sphere always the 
most congenial to Moultons of every age and country — the home 
life of the people. 

In looking for examples, we can only examine the church 
records, the town and church histories of England, also her army 
and navy records and the great registry of the transfers of landed 
estates. On such scrolls will appear, in every generation, for eight 
and one-quarter centuries, mention of Moulton names in honorable 
transactions. 

These offshoots from the primal stock had each in turn to 
conquer his place and his home in his native England as did the 
Norman Sir Thomas at Hastings. On different fields and with 
different weapons each won for himself his spurs and his home. 



22 MOULTON ANNALS. 

That old law of primogeniture was not altogether bad. It 
had certain merits which its advocates and beneficiaries did not 
claim for it. While the giving of all the titles and estates to the 
eldest son preserved a rich and powerful line of nobles as the 
aristocracy of England, it forced out into the world to struggle 
for themselves, the inheritors of the best blood of England ; it 
thus cast good seed for a harvest of brave citizens. The very 
hardship of the system has preserved from extinction many a 
splendid family in England. 

Perhaps the indulgences inevitably accompanying wealth and 
luxury would have exterminated not only the eldest sons and 
their immediate posterity, but all others of their families so that 
the name would not only be of the "extinct peerage," but no longer 
borne by any living men. 

"They builded better than they knew." 

The struggles to cope with the ills and wants of every age, 
was no doubt wholesome for these Moultons. They became strong 
by service. All the good blood-qualities were brought into requis- 
ition, developed and perpetuated. Today, in England and Amer- 
ica, Moultons equal to the best ideal men of the name in all 
the past are abroad in the land. 

The strong arm, the fortitude of soul, the brave and patriotic 
heart, the fervor of religion, the ever faithful and constant friend- 
ship, are their universal attributes, today, as they were in feudal 
times, among the noblest and best of Moulton lords. 

Discipline of hardship and service, is God's way of training 
men, races and nations. 

We append notes from various English historical works, more 
as corroborative suggestions than as any attempt at a history of 
the family, in England, which must be a work of very great and 
special research. Yet, enough can be inferred from these hints 
to justify whatever eulogistic remarks have preceded, in refer- 
ence to the family. [See Chapter V.]

ONS OF EGREMONT. BY WRIT OF SUMMONS, DATED 26 FEBRU- 
ARY, I297. 
From Burke's Extinct Peerage. Edition 1883. Pages 388 and 389. 

LINEAGE. 

In the time of King Henry I., Thomas de Multon, so called from his 
residence of Moulton in Lincolnshire, bestowed at the funeral of his father, 
in the chapter house at Spalding (his mother, brothers, sisters and friends 
being present) the Church of Weston, upon the monks of that Abbey. After 
this Thomas, came 

Lambert de Multon, who in the 11th Henry II., residing then in Lincoln- 
shire, was amerced 100 marks. In the 9th and 10th of King John, flourished 
another 

Thomas de Multon, who at that period was sheriff of the County of 
Lincoln, and in the 15th of the same reign, attended the king in his 
expedition then made into Poictou. This Thomas gave 1,000 marks to the 
crown for the wardship of the daughters and heirs of Richard de Luci, 
of Egremont, County Cumberland, and bestowed those ladies after in 
marriage upon bis two sons, Lambert and Alan. In the 17th King John, 
being in arms with the rebellious barons, and taken at Rochester Castle, 
he was committed to the custody of Peter de Mauley, to be safe secured, 
who conveyed him prisoner to the Castle of Corff, but in the 1st of Henry 
III., making his peace, he had restitution of his liberty and his lands. The 
next year having married Ada, dau. and co-heir of Hugh de Moreville, 
widow of Richard de Lacy, of Egremont, without the king's license, com- 
mand was sent to the Archbishop of York to make seizure of all his 
lands in Cumberland, and to retain them in his hands till further notice. 
Multon giving security, however, to answer the same, whensoever the king 
should require him to do so, he had livery of all those lands which had 
been seized for that transgression, with the Castle of Egremont. In three 
years afterwards he paid £100 fine to the king, and one palfry for the 
office of forester of Cumberland, it being the inheritance of Ada, his wife. 
In the 17th Henry III., he was sheriff of Cumberland, and remained in 
office for several succeeding years. Moreover, he was one of the justices of 
the King's Court of Common Pleas, from the 8th Henry III., and a 
justice itinerant for divers years, from the 9th of the same reign. He 
married twice, by his 1st wife he had issue: 

Lambert, who married Annabel, daughter and co-heir of Richard de 
Lucie. 

Alan, married Alice, daughter and co-heir of Richard de Lucie, and 
had a son, 



24 MOULTON ANNALS. 

"Thomas de Multon, who assumed the surname of Lucie. 

(From Dugdale's Baronetage, Vol. 1, page 569: 

•This Thomas de Multon, forasmuch as he assumed the sir-name of 
Lucie, by reason that Alice, his mother, was one of the daughters and 
co-heirs to Richard de Lucie (as is already observed) I shall say no more 
of him under the name of Moulton, referring my reader to the title of 
Lucie of Cockermouth, where I have further spoken of him and his 
descendents. 

The above Thomas married Isabell, one of the daughters and co-heirs 
of Adam de Bolteby of Northumberland, and died 2nd of Edward II., 
without issue, and the estates of Cockermouth fell to his brother, Anthony 
de Lucie, who died about 17 Edw. III.)

LINEAGE. 

Thomas de Multon, Lord of Moulton, in Lincolnshire, who died 1240, 
married for his 2nd wife, Ada, daughter and co-heir of Hugh de Moreville, 
and had with a daughter Julian who married Robert de Vavasour, a son, 

Thomas de Multon, who inherited the office of forester of Cumberland, 
from his mother and in the 36th Henry III., paid a fine of 400 marks to 
the crown for trespassing in the forests there, and for the future enjoy- 
ment of all the privileges which his ancestors had possessed with the 
forestership. In the 42nd year of the same reign, he had a military 
summons to march with the other northern barons into Scotland, for the 
purpose of rescuing the Scottish monarch, King Henry's son-in-law, from 
the restraints imposed upon him by his own subjects; and again in the 
55th of the same reign, to take up arms against the Welsh. This feudal 
baron married Maud, only daughter and heiress of Hubert de Vaux, Lord 
of Gillesland, and with her acquired that lordship. He died in 1270, and 
wa9 succeeded by his son: 

Thomas de Multon, who doing his homage, and livery of his lands, 
and the ensuing year, upon the death of Helewise de Levinton, widow of 
Eustace de Baliol, was found to be her heir as to a moiety of the Barony 
of Burgh upon the lands (he already enjoyed the other moiety by 
inheritance), and divers other considerable manors. He died in 1293 (his 
mother, the heiress of Gillesland, being still alive), and was succeeded by 
his son: 

Thomas de Multon, who doing his homage the same year, had livery of 
his lands, but died in two years afterwards, being then seized of the manor 
of Downham, in Norfolk; of Burgh-upon-Sands; of Kirk-Oswald; and of 
the Barony of Gillesland, with divers other estates all in the County of 
Cumberland. He was succeeded at his disease in 1295 (his widow, Isabel, 
married Sir John de Caster) by his son:

Thomas de Multon. This feudal lord having been engaged in the Scot- 
tish wars, in the 31st and 34th Edward I., was summoned to Parliament 
as Baron Multon of Gillesland, upon the accession of Edward II. from 
26 August, 1307, to 26 November, 1313, after which we find his lordship 
again upon the theatre of war, in Scotland, in the 3rd and 4th years of 
the new monarch, and he subsequently obtained some immunities from 
the crown, in the shape of grants for fairs and markets upon his different 
manors. He died in 1313, leaving by Margaret, his wife, an only daughter 
and heiress: 

Margaret de Multon, who married Randolph de Dacre, Lord Dacre, of 
the North, and conveyed her great estates with the Barony of Moulton to 
the Dacre family. This estate remained in the hands of the Dacre family 
till the death of George Dacre, 5th Lord Dacre, of Gillesland, who died in 
minority, anno 1569, of a fall from a wooden horse, upon which he 
practiced to leap. At the decease of his lordship, the "Barony of Dacre, 
of Gillesland," fell into abeyance between his sisters as co-heirs, and it so 
continues with their descendents. Of his estates, Greystock fell to the 
Earl of Arundel, and is now in the possession of the Duke of Norfolk; 
while Naworth Castle devolved upon Lord Wm. Howard, where he settled, 
and it now belongs to the Earl of Carlisle.

CHAPTER III. 

EXTRACT FROM "THE TALISMAN/' BY SIR WALTER SCOTT. 

Now change the scene — and let the trumpets sound, 
For we must rouse the lion from his lair. 

— Old Play. 

The scene must change as our programme has announced, 
from the mountain wilderness of Jordan to the camp of King 
Richard of England, then stationed between Jean d'Acre and As- 
calon ; and containing that army with which he of the Lion Heart 
had promised himself a triumphant march to Jerusalem, and in 
which he would probably have succeeded, if not hindered by the 
jealousies of the Chirstian princes engaged in the same enterprise, 
and the offence taken by them, at the uncurbed haughtiness of the 
English monarch, and Richard's unvailed contempt for his brother 
sovereigns, who, his equals in rank, were yet far his inferiors 
in courage, hardihood and military talents. Philip of France 
created disputes and obstacles which impeded every active meas- 
ure proposed by the heroic though impetuous Richard, while the 
ranks of the crusaders were daily thinned, not only by the deser- 
tion of individuals, but of entire bands, headed by their respective 
feudal leaders, who withdrew from a contest in which they had 
ceased to hope for success. 

The effects of the climate became, as usual, fatal to soldiers 
from the north, and the more so that the dissolute license of the 
crusaders, forming a singular contrast to the principles and pur- 
pose of their taking up arms, rendered them more easy victims to 
the insalubrious influence of burning heats and chilling dews. 
To these discouraging causes of loss was to be added the sword 
of the enemy. Saladin, than whom no greater name is recorded 
in Eastern history, had learned, to his fatal experience, that the 



EXTRACT FROM THE TALISMAN. 2.*} 

light armed followers were little able to meet in close encounter 
with the iron-clad Franks, and had been taught at the same time 
to apprehend and dread the adventurous character of his antag- 
onist, Richard. But if his armies were more than once routed, 
with great slaughter, his numbers gave the Saracen the advantage 
in those lighter skirmishes, of which many were inevitable. As 
the army of his assailants decreased, the enterprises of the Sultan 
became more numerous and more bold, in this species of petty 
warfare. 

The camp of the crusaders was surrounded and almost be- 
seiged, by clouds of light cavalry resembling swarms of wasps, 
easily crushed when they are once grasped, but furnished with 
wings to elude superior strength, and stings to inflict harm and 
mischief. There was perpetual warfare of posts and foragers, 
in which many valuable lives were lost, without any correspond- 
ing object being gained; convoys were intercepted and commu- 
nications were cut off. The crusaders had to purchase the means 
of sustaining life, by life itself; and water, like that of the well 
of Bethlehem, longed for by King David, one of its ancient mon- 
archs, was then, as before, only obtained by the expenditure of 
blood. 

These evils were, in a great measure, counterbalanced by the 
stern resolution and restless activity of King Richard, who, with 
some of his best knights, was ever on horseback, ready to repair 
to any point where danger occurred, and often, not only bringing 
unexpected succor to the Christians, but discomfiting the infidels 
when they seemed most secure of victory. But even the iron 
frame of Coeur de Lion could not support, without injury the al- 
ternations of the uncertain climate joined to ceaseless exertions of 
body and mind. He became afflicted with one of those slow and 
wasting fevers peculiar to Asia, and in despite of his great 
strength, and still greater courage, grew first unfit to mount on 
horseback, and then unable to attend the councils of war, which 
were, from time to time, held by the crusaders. It was difficult 
to say whether this state of personal inactivity was rendered 
more galling or more endurable to the English monarch, by 
the resolution of the council to engage in a truce of thirty 



28 M0ULT0N ANNALS. 

days with the Sulta Snaladin, for on the one hand, if he was 
incensed at the delay which this interposed to the progress of 
the great enterprise, he was, on the other, somewhat con- 
soled by knowing that others were not acquiring laurels, while 
he remained inactive upon a sick bed. 

That, however, which Coeur de Lion could least excuse, was 
the general inactivity which prevailed in the camp of the cru- 
saders, as soon as his illness assumed a serious aspect; and the 
reports which he extracted from his unwilling attendants gave 
him to understand that the hopes of the host had abated in pro- 
portion to his illness, and that the interval of truce was employed, 
not in recruiting in numbers, reanimating their courage, fostering 
their spirit of conquest and preparing for a speedy and determined 
advance upon the Holy City, which was the object of their ex- 
pedition, but in securing the camp occupied by their diminished 
followers, with trenches, palisades, and other fortifications, as 
if preparing rather to repel an attack from a powerful enemy so 
soon as hostilities should recommence, than to assume the proud 
character of conquerors and assailants. 

The English king chafed under these reports, like the im- 
prisoned lion, viewing his prey from the iron barriers of his cage. 
Naturally rash and impetuous, the irritability of his temper preyed 
on itself. He was dreaded by his attendants, and even the medi- 
cal assistants feared to assume the necessary authority, which a 
physician, to do justice to his patient, must needs exercise over 
him. 

One faithful baron, who, perhaps from the congenial nature 
of his disposition, was devoutly attached to the king's person, 
dared alone to come between the dragon and his wrath, and 
quietly but firmly maintained a control which no other dared 
assume over the dangerous invalid, and which Thomas de Multon 
only exercised, because he esteemed his sovereign's life and honor 
more than he did the degree of favor which he might lose, or 
even the risk which he might incur in nursing a patient so intract- 
able, and whose displeasure was so perilous. 

Sir Thomas was the Lord of Gilsland in Cumberland, and, 
in an age when surnames and titles were not distinctly attached. 



EXTRACT FROM THE TALISMAN. 20, 

as now, to the individuals who bore them, he was called by the 
Normans the Lord de Vaux, and in English, by the Saxons, who 
clung to their native language, and were proud of the share of 
Saxon blood in this renowned warrior's veins, he was termed 
Thomas, or more familiarly, Thorn of the Gills, or Narrow Val- 
leys, from which his extensive domains derived their well-known 
appellation. 

This chief had been exercised in almost all the wars, whether 
waged between England and Scotland, or amongst the various 
domestic factions which then tore the former country assunder, 
and in all had been distinguished, as well from his military con- 
duct as from his personal prowess. He was, in other respects, 
a rude soldier, blunt and careless in his bearing, and taciturn, 
nay, almost sullen, in his habits of society and seeming, at least, 
to disclaim all knowledge of policy and of courtly art. There 
were men, however, who pretended to look deeply into character, 
who asserted that the Lord de Yaux was not less shrewd and as- 
piring than he was blunt and bold, and who thought that, while 
he assimilated himself to the king's own character of blunt hardi- 
hood, it was, in some degree, at least, with an eye to establish 
his favor, and to gratify his own hopes of deep-laid ambition. 
But no one cared to thwart his schemes, if such he had, by ri- 
valling him in the dangerous occupation of daily attendance on 
the sickbed of a patient whose disease was pronounced infectious, 
and more especially when it was remembered that the patient was 
Cceur de Lion, suffering under all the furious impatience of a 
soldier withheld from battle, and a sovereign sequestered from 
authority ; and the common soldiers, at least in the English army, 
were generally of opinion that De Vaux attended on the king like 
comrade upon comrade, in the honest and disinterested frankness 
of military friendship contracted between the partakers of daily 
dangers. 

It was on the decline of a Syrian day that Richard lay on his 
couch of sickness, loathing it as much in mind as his illness made 
it irksome to his body. His bright blue eye, which at all times 
shone with uncommon splendor, had its vivacity augmented by 
fever and mental impatience and glanced from among his curled 



30 M0ULT0N ANNALS. 

and unshorn locks of yellow hair, as fitfully and as vividly, as the 
last gleams of the sun shoot through the clouds of an approach- 
ing thunder-storm, which still, however, are gilded by its beams. 
His manly features showed the progress of wasting illness, and 
his beard, neglected and untrimmed, had overgrown both lips 
and chin. Casting himself from side to side, now clutching 
towards him the coverings, which at the next moment he flung as 
impatiently from him, his tossed couch and impatient gestures 
showed at once the energy and the reckless impatience of a dis- 
position, whose natural sphere was that of the most active exer- 
tion. 

Beside his couch stood Thomas de Vaux, in face, attitude, 
and manner, the strongest possible contrast to the suffering mon- 
arch. His stature approached the gigantic, and his hair in thick- 
ness might have resembled that of Samson, though only after the 
Israelitish champion's locks had passed under the shears of the 
Philistines, for those of De Vaux were cut short, that they might 
be enclosed under his helmet. The light of his broad, large hazel 
eye, resembled that of the autumn morn, and it was only perturbed 
for a moment, when from time to time it was attracted by Rich- 
ard's vehement marks of agitation and restlessness. His features, 
though massive like his person, might have been handsome before 
they were defaced with scars, his upper lip, after the fashion of 
the Normans, was covered with thick mustaches, which grew 
so long and luxuriantly as to mingle with his hair, and, like his 
hair, were dark brown, slightly brindled with gray. His frame 
seemed of that kind which most readily defies both toil and cli- 
mate, for he was thin-flanked, broad-chested, long-armed, deep- 
breathed, and strong-limbed. He had not laid aside his buff- 
coat, which displayed the cross cut on the shoulder, for more 
than three nights, enjoying but such momentary repose as the 
warder of a sick monarch's couch might by snatches indulge. 

This Baron rarely changed his posture, except to administer 
to Richard the medicine or refreshments, which none of his less 
favored attendants could persuade the impatient monarch to 
take; and there was something affecting in the kindly, yet 
awkward manner, in which he discharged offices so strangly con- 
trasted with his blunt and soldierlv habits and manners. 



EXTRACT FROM THE TALISMAN. 31 

The pavilion in which these personages were, had, as be- 
came the time, as well as the personal character of Richard, more 
of a warlike than a sumptuous or royal character. Weapons 
offensive and defensive, several of them of strange and newly 
invented construction, were scattered about the tented apartment, 
or disposed upon the pillars which supported it. Skins of ani- 
mals slain in the chase were stretched on the ground, or extended 
along the sides of the pavilion, and, upon a heap of these sylvan 
spoils, lay three alans, as they were then called, (wolf -grey hounds, 
that is) of the largest size and as white as snow. Their faces, 
marked with many a scar, from clutch and fang, showed their 
share in collecting the trophies upon which they reposed, and their 
eyes, fixed from time to time with an expressive yawn and stretch 
upon the bed of Richard, evinced how much they marveled at 
and regretted the unwonted inactivity which they were compelled 
to share. These were but the accompaniments of the soldier and 
huntsman ; but on a small table close by the bed, was placed a 
shield of wrought steel, of triangular form, bearing the three 
lions passant, first assumed by the chivalrous monarch, and before 
it the golden circlet, resembling much a ducal coronet, only that 
it was higher in front than behind, which, with the purple velvet 
and embroidered tiara that lined it, formed then the emblem of 
England's sovereignty. Beside it, as if prompt for defending the 
regal symbol, lay a mighty crestal-axe, which would have wearied 
the arm of any other than Coeur de Lion. 

In an outer partition of the pavilion waited two or three 
officers of the royal household, depressed, anxious for their mas- 
ter's health, and not less so for their own safety, in case of his 
decease. Their gloomy apprehensions spread themselves to the 
warders without, who paced about in downcast and silent con- 
templation, or, resting on their halberds, stood motionless on their 
post, rather like armed trophies than living warriors. 

"So thou hast no better news to bring me from without, Sir 
Thomas ?" said the king, after a long and perturbed silence, spent 
in the feverish agitation which we have endeavored to describe. 
"All our knights turned women, and our ladies become devotees, 
and neither a spark of valour nor of gallantry to enlighten a 



32 MOULTON ANNALS. 

camp, which contains the choicest of Europe's chivalry — Ha !" 

"The truce, my lord," said De Vaux, with the same patience 
with which he had twenty times repeated the explanation — "the 
truce prevents us bearing ourselves as men of action ; and, for 
the ladies, I am no great reveller, as is known to your Majesty, 
and seldom exchange steel and buff for velvet and gold — but 
thus far I know, that our choicest beauties are waiting upon the 
Queen's Majesty and the Princess, to a pilgrimage to the convent 
of Engaddi, to accomplpish their vows for your Highness's deliv- 
erance from this trouble." 

"And is it thus," said Richard, with the impatience of in- 
disposition, "that royal matrons and maidens should risk them- 
selves, where the dogs who defile the land have as little truth to 
man, as they have faith toward God?" 

"Nay, my lord," said De Yaux, "they have Saladin's word 
for their safety." 

"True, true!" replied Richard, "and I did the heathen Soldan 
injustice — I owe him reparation for it — would God I were but fit 
to offer it him upon my body between the two hosts — Christen- 
dom and Heathenesse both looking on ! " 

As Richard spoke, he thrust his right arm out of bed naked 
to the shoulder, and painfully raising himself in his couch, shook 
his clenched hand, as if it grasped sword or battle-axe, and was 
then brandished over the jewelled turban of the Soldan. It was 
not without a gentle degree of violence, which the King would 
scarce have endured from another, that De Vaux, in his character 
of sick-nurse, compelled his royal master to replace himself in the 
couch, and covered his sinewy arm, neck and shoulders, with 
the care which a mother bestows upon an impatient child. 

"Thou art a rough nurse, though a willing one, De Vaux," 
said the king, laughing with a bitter expression, while he sub- 
mitted to the strength he was unable to resist; "methinks a 
coif would become thy lowering features, as well as a child's 
biggin would beseem mine. We should be a babe and nurse to 
frighten girls with." 

"We have frightened men in our time, my liege," said De 
Yaux, "and, I trust, may live to frighten them again. What is

a fever-fit that we should not endure it patiently, in order to get 
rid of it, easily?" "Fever-fit!" exclaimed Richard, impetuously; 
"thou mayest think, and justly, that it is a fever-fit with me: but 
what is it with all the other Christian princes — with Philip of 
France — with that dull Austrian — with him on Montserrat — with 
the Hospitallers — with the Templars — what is it with all them? 
— I will tell thee — it is a cold palsy — a dead lethargy — a disease 
that deprives them of speech and action — a canker that has eaten 
into the heart of all that is noble and chivalrous and virtuous 
among them — that has made them false to the noblest vow ever 
knights were sworn to — has made them different to their fame, 
and forgetful of their God." 

"For the love of Heaven, my liege," said De Vaux, "take it 
less violently! you will be heard without doors, where such 
speeches are but too current already among the soldiery, and en- 
gender discord and contention in the Christian host. Bethink you 
that your illness mars the mainspring of the enterprize : a man- 
gonel will work without screw and lever better than the Christian 
host without King Richard." 

"Thou flatterest me, De Vaux," said Richard, and not insen- 
sible to the power of praise, he reclined his head on the pillow, 
with a more deliberate attempt at repose than he had yet ex- 
hibited. But Thomas De Vaux was no courtier ; the phrase which 
he had offered had risen spontaneously to his lips ; and he knew 
not how to pursue the pleasing theme, so as to soothe and pro- 
long the vien which he had excited. He was silent, therefore, 
until relapsing into his moody contemplations, the King demanded 
of him sharply, "Despardieux ! This is smoothly said to soothe a sick 
man ; but does a league of monarchs, an assemblage of nobles, a 
convocation of all the chivalry of Europe, droop with the sickness 
of one man. though he chances to be King of England? Why 
should Richard's illness of Richard's death, check the march of 
thirty thousand men, as brave as himself? When the master stag 
is struck down, the herd do not disperse upon the fall, — when the 
falcon strikes the leading crane, another takes the guidance of the 
phalanx. Why do not the powers assemble and choose some one, 
to whom they may entrust the guidance of the host?" 



34 MOULTON ANNALS. 

"Forsooth, and if it please your Majesty" said De Vaux, "I 
hear consultations have been held among the royal leaders for 
some such purpose." 

"Ha!" exclaimed Richard, his jealousy awakened, giving 
his mental irritation another direction — "am I forgot by my allies 
ere I have taken the last sacrament? — do they hold me dead al- 
ready ? — But no, no — they are right — and whom do they select as 
leader of the Christian host?" 

"Rank and dignity," said De Vaux, "point to the King of 
France." 

"Oh, ay," answered the English monarch, "Philip of France 
and Navarre — Dennis Montjoie — his most Christian Majesty! — 
mouth-filling words these ! There is but one risk — that he might 
mistake the words En arriere, for en avant, and lead us back to 
Paris, instead of marching to Jerusalem. His politic head has 
learned by this time that there is more to be gotten by oppressing 
his feudatories, and pillaging his allies, than fighting with the 
Turks for the Holy Sepulchre. 

"They might choose the Archduke of Austria" said De Vaux. 

"What! because he is big and burley like thyself, Thomas — 
nearly as thick-headed but without thy indifference to danger, and 
carelessness of offence? I tell thee that Austria has in all that 
mass of flesh no bolder animation, than is afforded by the pee- 
vishness of a wasp, and the courage of a wren. Out upon him ! — 
he a leader of chivalry to deeds of glory ! — Give him a flagon of 
Rhemish to drink with his besmirched baaren-hanters and lance- 
knechts." 

"There is the Grand Master of the Templars," continued the 
baron, not sorry to keep his master's attention engaged on other 
topics than his own illness, though at the expense of the characters 
of prince and potentate — "There is the Grand Master of the 
Templars," he continued, "undaunted, skilful, brave in battle, 
and sage in council, having no separate kingdoms of his own to 
divert his exertions from the recovery of the Holy Land — what 
thinks your Majesty of the Master as a general leader of the 
Christian host? - ' 

"Ha, Beau — Seant?" answered the King. "Oh, no exception

can be taken to Brother Giles Amanry — he understands the order- 
ing of a battle, and the fighting in front when it begins. But, Sir 
Thomas, were it fair to take the Holy Land from the heathen 
Saladin, so full of all the virtues which may distinguish unchris- 
tened man, and give it to Giles Amanry, a worse pagan than him- 
self — an idolater — a devil-worshipper — a necromancer — who prac- 
tises crime the most dark and unnatural, in the vaults and secret 
places of abomination and darkness?" 

"The Grand Master of the Hospitallers of St. John of Jeru- 
salem is not tainted by fame, either with heresy or magic," said 
Thomas De Vaux. 

"But is he not a sordid miser?" said Richard, hastily ; "has he 
not been suspected — ay, more than suspected — of selling to the 
infidels those advantages which they would never have won by 
fair force? Tush, man, better give the army to be made merchan- 
dize of by Venetian skippers and Lombardy pedlars, than trust it 
to the Grand Master of St. John.'* 

"Well, then, I will venture but another guess," said the Baron 
de Vaux — "What say you to the gallant Marquis of Monserrat, so 
wise, so elegant, such a good man-at-arms ?" 

"Wise? cunning, you would say," replied Richard; "elegant 
in a lady's chamber, if you will. Oh, ay, Comrade of Montserrat, 
who knows not the popinjay ? Politic and versatile, he will change 
his purposes as often as the trimmings of his doublet, and you 
shall never be able to guess the hue of his inmost vestments from 
their outward colours. A man-at-arms? ay, a fine figure on 
horse-back, and can bear him well in the tilt-yard, and at the 
barriers, when swords are blunted at point and edge, and spears 
are tipped with trenches of wood, instead of steel-pikes. Wert 
thou not with me. when I said to that same gay marquis, 'Here we 
be, three good Christians, and on yonder plain there pricks a 
band of some three score Saracens, what say you to charge them 
briskly? There are but twenty unbelieving miscreants to each 
true knight." " 

"I recollect the Marquis replied," said De Vaux, "that his 
limbs were of flesh, not of iron, and that he would rather bear the 
heart of a man than of a beast, though that beast were the lion. 



36 MOULTON ANNALS. 

But I see how it is — we shall end where we began, without hope 
of praying at the sepulchre, until Heaven shall restore King 
Richard to health." 

At this grave remark, Richard burst out into a hearty fit of 
laughter, the first which he had for sometime indulged in. "Why, 
what a thing is conscience," he said, "that through its means, even 
such a thick-witted northern lad as thou canst bring thy sovereign 
to confess his folly! It is true, that, did they not propose them- 
selves as fit to hold my leading-staff, little should I care for pluck 
ing the silken trappings off the puppets thou hast shown me in 
succession — What concerns it me what fine tinsel robes they 
swagger in, unless when they are named as rivals in the glorious 
enterprize, to which I have vowed myself? Yes, De Vaux, I 
confess my weakness, and the wil fullness of my ambition. The 
Christian camp contains, doubtless, many a better knight than 
Richard of England, and it would be wise and worthy to assign 
to the best of them the leading of the host — but," continued the 
warlike monarch, raising himself in his bed, and shaking the cover 
from his head, while his eyes sparkled as they were wont to do 
on the eve of battle, "were such a knight to plant the banner of the 
Cross on the Temple of Jerusalem, while 1 was unable to bear my 
share in the noble task, he should, so soon as I was fit to lay lance 
in rest, undergo my challenge to mortal combat, for having dimin- 
ished my fame, and pressed in before me to the object of my enter 
prize. — But hark, what trumpets are those at a distance?" 

"Those of King Fhilip, as I guess, my liege," said the stout 
Englishman. 

"Thou art dull of ear, Thomas," said the King, endeavoring 
to start up — "hearest thou not that clash and clang? By Heaven, 
the Turks are in camp — I hear their lelies."* 

He again endeavored to get out of bed, and De Vaux was 
obliged to exercise his own great strength, and also to summon 
the assistance of the chamberlains from the inner tent to restrain 
him. 

"Thou art a false traitor, De Vaux," said the incensed mon- 
arch, when, breathless and exhausted, with struggling, he was 
•The war-cries of the Moslemah. 



EXTRACT FROM THE TALISMAN. 37 

compelled to submit to superior strength, and to repose in quiet 
on his couch. '*I would I were — I would I were but strong 
enough to dash thy brains out with my battle-axe." 

"I would you had the strength, my liege," said De Vaux, 
"and would even take the risk of its being so employed. The 
odds would be great in favour of Christendom, were Thomas 
Moulton dead, and Coeur de Lion himself again." 

"Mine honest, faithful friend," said Richard, extending his 
hand, which the baron reverentially saluted, "forgive thy master's 
impatience of mood. It is this burning fever which chides thee, 
and not thy kind master, Richard of England. But go, I prithee, 
and bring me word what strangers are in the camp, for these 
sounds are not of Christendom." 

De Vaux left the pavilion on the errand assigned, and in his 
absence, which he had resolved should be brief, he charged the 
chamberlain's pages and attendants to redouble their attention 
on their sovereign, with threats of holding them to responsibility, 
which rather added to than diminished their timid anxiety in the 
discharge of their duty ; for next, perhaps to the ire of the mon- 
arch himself, they dreaded that of the stern and inexorable Lord 
of Gilsland. 



NOTE: — He was a historical hero, faithfully attached, as is here 
expressed, to King Richard, and is noticed with distinction in the romance 
mentioned in the Introduction. At the beginning of the romance, mention 
is made of a tournament, in which the kinjj returns three times with a 
fresh suit of armour, which acted as a disguise; and at each appearance, 
some knight of great prowess had a sharp encounter with him. 

When Richard returned the second time, the following is Historian 
Ellis's account of his proceedings: "He now mounted a bay horse, 
assumed a suit of armour painted red. and a helmet, the crest of which 
was a red hound, with a long tail which reached to the earth; an emblem 
intended to convey his indignation against the heathen hounds who denied 
the Holy Land, and his determination to attempt their destruction. Having 
sufficiently signalized himself in his new disguise, he rode into the ranks 
for the purpose of assaulting a more formidable adversary; and, delivering 
his spear to his squire, took his mace, and assaulted Sir Thomas de 
Multon. a knight whose prowess was deservedly held in the highest esti- 
mation. Sir Thomas, apparently not at all disordered by a blow which 
would have felled a common adversary, calmly advised him to go and 
amuse himself elsewhere; but Richard having aimed at him a second and 
more violent stroke, by which his helmet was nearly crushed, he returned 
it with such vigour that the king lost his stirrups, and, recovering himself 
with 6ome difficulty, rode off with all speed into the forest." — Ellis's Speci- 
mens, pp. 193, 194. 



CHAPTER IV. 

THE FLOWER OF GILLESLAND. 

Few travellers in England fail to visit Shakespeare's county, 
lovely Warwickshire, which welcomes us to the very heart of 
blooming nature and delights us with the picturesque ruins of 
Kenilworth no less than with the massive walls of Warwick Castle. 
Warwick is perhaps the only ancient castle of Great Britain in 
perfect preservation which tourists are privileged to visit, and 
none can resist the combined charm of nature's gifts and the mag- 
nificence acquired by art. Here in this castle, which still stands 
strong and impregnable, Margaret Moulton passed her girlhood. 

It will be remembered from the last chapter that Thomas de 
Moulton, who died in 1313, left no male heir and therefore his 
vast estates passed to his only child, Margaret, whom historians 
of that period designate as "the Flower of Gillesland." At this 
time, Margaret was but thirteen years of age. She had been be- 
trothed to Ralph de Dacre by a contract made between her 
father and Win. de Dacre, the father of Ralph. The wardship of 
the young lady was claimed by the king, Edw. II., and she was 
entrusted to the care of Beauchamp. Earl of Warwick. We can- 
not wonder at the solicitude of the king, regarding the heiress to 
such vast possessions, if we take a brief inventory of her estates. 

In the "History of Cumberland County," we read the follow- 
ing: "The patrimonial estate of the Moultons was the castle and 
manor of Multon and the town and manor of Spaulding, in the 
county of Lincoln ; but Thos. de Multon by marrying the heiress 
of Hugh de Moreville had added the barony of Burgh on the 
Sands, the charge and property of hereditary forester of the forest 
of Inglewood, the manor of Lazonby and the manor and castle 
of Kirke — Oswald, which Hugh de Moreville had built and ob- 
tained a market for, with the castle and manor of Knaresborough, 
in Yorkshire. Then from Maud de Vallibus, the barony of Gils-

land, with its dependent manors, with the Hamlets of Braken- 
hill, Eckelsby, Melverton and Northwood, the manor of Aikton, 
Rowcliffe and Glassonby in Cumberland ; of Barton Adelathes and 
the moiety of the town of Overton or Orton in Westmoreland, 
the manor of Hatton in Norfolk and other possessions in Suffolk, 
Somersetshire and Dorsetshire and the manor of Nether Trayline 
in Scotland." 

The fair Margaret may have sighed for her native mountains 
or perchance preferred her gay suitor to the alliance destined for 
her by the king. At all events, in her seventeenth year, she was 
carried off in the night-time from Warwick Castle by her bold and 
chivalrous suitor, Ralph de Dacre. We find the Dacre family 
mentioned in reliable historical works as being of no less renown 
than the Moultons. The king rewarded the adventurous exploit 
of young Dacre by acknowledging the loyalty of his secret mar- 
riage and his right to both titles and lands. The husband of Mar- 
garet, "Lord Dacre of the North," as he is called, thus united the 
magnificent estates of two powerful families. 

This was the year 13 17. Until sometime in the reign of Edw. 
III., the old Castle of Irthington was maintained as chief barony 
of Gillesland. This castle is sometimes called Castle-Steads, and 
its grandeur is described to us in detail by ancient historians. In 
the summer of 1335, the youthful Edward III. was in these 
parts with a great army collected against the Scots; and there is 
reason to believe that he was the guest of Ralph de Dacre, at 
Irthington, the ancient Moulton Castle. At this time, the king 
granted Lord Dacre a license to fortify and castellate his man- 
sion of "Naworth Castle" as it is described in the patent. Naworth 
Castle thus became the home of Margaret Moulton, and Irthing- 
ton was abandoned ; the mound on which, in Norman fashion, the 
keep was built, is all that has remained of Irthington Castle in the 
memory of man. The new stronghold at Naworth was built to 
receive a garrison : 

"Stern on the angry confines 

Naworth rose ; 
In dark woods islanded, its towers looked forth, 
And frown'd defiance on the angry North." 



40 MOULTON ANNALS. 

The interior arrangements of Naworth, no less than its exterior, 
proclaimed the rude chivalry and the martial manners of the age. 
Defensive warfare against the Scots was at its height five hun- 
dred years ago, and the home of every feudal lord must also be 
a fortress. 

Kirk Oswald, a castle possessed by the first Thomas de Mul- 
ton, who was lord of Gillesland, was partially destroyed by fire at 
about the period when Irthington was abandoned. Timber from 
it was used in the construction of Naworth — or rather in its con- 
version from a mansion to a castle. With respect to Kirk Oswald, 
an ancient writer tells us: "This great castle of Kirk Oswald 
was once the fairest fabricke that ever eyes looked upon: The 
hall I have seen one hundred yards long: and the great portraits, 
one of King Brute : lying in the end of the Roofe of this hall : and 
all his succeeding successors kings of Great Britaine, portrait to 
the waste, their visage, hatts, feathers, garbs, and habits in the 
Roofe of this hall : now transported to Xaward Castle where they 
are placed in the Roofe of ye hall, at the head thereof." 

We learn therefore that both timber and furnishings from 
this ancient Moulton Castle were transported to the new home of 
the heiress at Naworth, and so Naworth, built by the husband of 
Margaret Moulton, possesses for us a double interest. 

A vivid picture of this period is presented by John Timbs in 
his "Abbeys, Castles and Ancient Halls of England and Wales." 
He says : "The great lords resided chiefly in their castles, leaving 
them only when required (which, in former times, were very fre- 
quent) to attend the King in his wars, or his Parliaments. The 
feudal tenures and services were maintained around the ancient 
lords of Naworth. They handled the sword constantly, the pen, 
we may believe, but seldom if ever in their lives ; their leisure was 
mostly occupied in the sports of the woods and fields ; and they 
were liberal in all that pertained to hawks and hounds. Their 
tastes in this respect seem to have been shared by not only the 
dignified secular clergy of their day, but also, by the abbots and 
priors of some of the monasteries." 

But the name of Dacre, renowned for valor and strength, 
was destined to the same fate as the noble name of Moulton. At

the end of two hundred and fifty years, the Dacres failed of a 
male heir and Elizabeth, the heiress of the Moulton-Dacre estates 
and titles, became the bride of Lord William Howard. 

Naworth Castle, therefore, passed to the Howard famliy, and 
is still in their possession, the present occupant being the Earl 
of Carlisle, a Howard in blood and name. 

In a niche of the banquet-hall, as it now exists, at Naworth 
Castle, one sees at the extreme end two griffins bearing banners, 
on which are engraved the arms of the Moulton and Dacre families, 
respectively. These are doubtless the figures referred to in his- 
tory as having been brought from Kirk Oswald. In passing into 
the Howard family, Naworth gained undying celebrity from being 
the residence of "Belted Will," the bold and fearless border chief- 
tain. It is therefore pointed out to-day as one of the most cele- 
brated ancient castles of Northern England. 

The "Flower of Gillesland," product of a rocky mountainous 
soil, offshot of a stern, war-like race, thus became mother of some 
of the noblest and bravest lords of old England. Would that we 
knew more of Margaret ! Born to great wealth, tenderly nur- 
tured and reared in luxury, she did not fear to risk poverty, exile 
and the displeasure of the king, for the sake of the man she loved. 

Did not the firm will, the adventurous spirit and the noble 
courage of Sir Thomas Moulton animate the heart of the young 
girl, when she stole forth from Naworth Castle at the dead of 
night, to become the bride of the man whom her father had 
chosen for her husband ? 

A wife at seventeen, Margaret early became the mother of 
four sons. Their names were William, Thomas, Ranulph and 
Hugh. Ranulph entered the priesthood, after the ancient fashion 
of noble families, which destined the younger sons to the church 
and armv. The Moultons, Dacres and Howards have ever been 
the pillars of both church and state. 

The Moultons who visit England, hereafter, will surely not 
forget the romantic history of Margaret, and will be proud to 
remember, on visiting the stately halls of Warwick, that they

love transplanted her to Dacre soil. 



Note: — Those interested in the history of Naworth Castle will be 
charmed with John Timbs' chapter on "Naworth Castle, Lanercost and the 
Lords of Gillesland," in his work "Abbeys, Castles and Ancient Homes of 
England and Wales," to which I have already referred. I am indebted to 
him for much of the information in this chapter. I also refer to the fol- 
lowing authorities "Antiquities and Families in Cumberland," by Sanford, 
1675. "History of Cumberland Co." Hutchins, 1794. Dexter's "History of 
Cumberland Co."

EXTRACTS FROM ENGLISH HISTORICAL WORKS. 

Note: — At great expense, the library of the British Museum, town 
directories and genealogical librabries in Great Britain were searched for 
information regarding early Moultons. It has seemed to the writer a pity 
that the matter thus obtained should remain merely in the archives of his 
own library. He has, therefore, inserted this chapter which will prove of 
interest to the student of family history. Others are at liberty to omit it 
without hurting the feelings of the author.

July, 1806. He was riding in a trap along side the Serpentine 
river, when all at once the horse took fright, and plunged into the 
river at the deepest part. A boy of 15 years of age was riding with 
him at the time by the name of Robert Street, and was also 
drowned. Mr. Moulton, was originally a private in the 15th Light 
Dragoons, and from his good conduct was promoted to the rank 
of Lieutenant. In the beginning of last April, through the interest 
of the Dukes of Kent and Sussex, he was employed by the late

Adieu, great soul whose living Glories stand, 
And proudly their own Monument command; 
Who never struggled to resign his Breath, 
Tho' he, like Fate, could once distribute Death. 
The Fierceness of his untam'd youthful Age, 
Virtue and manly Reoson did assuage. 
Dangers to him such pleasing Forms did bear, 
His Looks in Fight so unconcerned were. 
That he possest a Peace, tho' deep engaged in War; 
And when his frozen Limbs has lost their Fire, 
Spurr'd with a noble and a brave Desire, 
Like Caesar, with his Eyes could Victory inspire.

ideas of the townsfolk of Bradford. Old people there still tell 
traditional tales of her ladyship's peculiarities. Upon her decease, 
in consequence of the Duke having died without issue, the landed 
estates which she enjoyed for her life, passed to his sister's son 
Charles Meadows, who assumed, by sign manual, the surname and 
arms of Pierrepont, and was created Earl Manvers, in 1806. A 
very large part of the property still belongs to his family, but 
Kingston House, with about nine acres of ground, was sold in 
1802, to Mr. Thomas Divett, who erected a woolen mill upon the 
premises. The house fell into the occupation of inferior tenants 
and was rapidly sinking to decay, when it was fortunately sold 
again by Mr. Divett's representatives in 1848. to the present 
owner, Mr. Stephen Moulton. Mr. Moulton's first act — one for 
which he deserves the thanks of all admirers of architectural ele- 
gance, was to put into complete restoration all that remained of 
the North Wiltshire Hall, of Bradford-on-Avon. 

Upon taking up the floor of one of the apartments in 185 1, a 
curious discovery was made of a beautiful court sword of Spanish 
steel, which Mr. Moulton gave to the late Captain Palariet, of 
Wooley Grange, near Bradford. Along with it were found some 
fragments of horse equipage, Lolsters, etc., and a quantity of 
ancient deeds and papers chiefly relating to the Hall family and 
their property, in and near Bradford. [The Halls were the origi- 
nal owners of the Kingston Estate from 1621 to about the 171 1. J 

The above Stephen Moulton was a Justice of the Peace for 
North Wiltshire, and resided at Kingston House, from 1848 till 
he died on April 26, 1880, when he was succeeded by his son 
Horatio Moulton. Mrs. Stephen Moulton died about 1881. 
Horatio Moulton had one son who died at Kingston House 
on January 13th, 1882, aged seven years and ten months. 
The mills, that were woolen mills, are now used for "India Rub- 
ber" manufactures, and are carried on under the name of Stephen

having laboured there for sixteen years, he was designated 
Head Master of the New Wesleyan School at Cambridge, in 
1874. Previously, in 1872, he had been elected a member of 
the Legal Hundred at the earliest election at which the laws 
of the Wesleyan connection admitted into that body. He 
received the honorary degree of M. A. from the University 
of Cambridge, April 19th, 1877. Mr. Moulton is a member 
of the New Testament Revision Company; translator and 
editor of Winer's "Grammar of New Testament, Greek," and 
a contributor to Professor Plumptre's ''Bible Educator." His 
"History of the English Bible" appeared in 1878. — Address, 
The Leys, Cambridge, England. 

In J. T. Slugg's Memorials and Reminiscences of "Wood- 
house Grove School," published, London, 1885, we find the 
following account: 

1812. — Moulton, William. In "Hill's Arrangement" for 
1881 will be found the names of six Moultons, three of whom 
were then living and three deceased. Five of the six were 
members of the same family, of which William was the head. 
He became a Wesleyan Minister in 1794, and laboured as 
such for forty years, during the whole of which time he bore 
an unblemished character. He died at Tadcaster in Yorkshire, 
in 1835, in the sixty-sixth year of his age. He had a numerous 
family of fourteen or fifteen children, of whom the eldest was 
named after his father. William. The latter was a scholar at 
the Grove at its opening and was for some time the head boy 
in the school. He was known amongst his schoolfellows as 
a singular character, and very clever. He died when only 
sixteen years of age. Three of his brothers were Wesleyan 
ministers, viz.: John Bakewell, who entered the itinerancy 
in 1830, and after labouring for seven years died in 1837; 
James Egan, who was born at Bedford in 1806 and who died 
in 1866; and Ebenezer A., who is still in the Ministry, having 
entered it in 1835. James Egan, just mentioned, had four 
sons, all more or less distinguished men — the eldest being 
William Fiddian (now Dr. Moulton), who, being a Grove

boy, will be mentioned in his place; the second, James Egan 
Moulton, was a missionary in Tonga ; the third, John Fletcher 
Moulton*, was a distinguished Cambridge scholar, and was 
both senior wrangler and Smith's prizeman ; and the fourth 
was Richard Green Moulton, a well-known Cambridge lec- 
turer. 

1846. — Moulton, William Fiddian, C. Sc. (afterwards the 
Rev'd Dr. Moulton). It has often been said that the lives of 
literary men are uneventful ; their events are their books. 
This remark is true of such a man as the Rev. Dr. Moulton. 
The brevity of this notice, therefore, must not be looked upon 
as the measure of the estimate with which he is regarded. 
He is the son of the late Rev. James Egan Moulton, who has 
already been mentioned, and who was a scholar at Kings- 
wood, where he remained as junior master for seven years. 
He relinquished this position to enter the Wesleyan ministry 
in 1828, in which he laboured for thirty-five years, during 
which he made considerable attainments in various branches 
of knowledge. He was a great sufferer from asthma, and 
was obliged to retire from active work in 1863, and he died 
in 1866. His son, the subject of this notice, as a boy, early 
displayed a remarkable aptitude for scholarship. It is no- 
ticeable that whilst he is now most widely known as a classi- 
cal scholar, when he was at the Grove he studied mathematics 
with such success, as already mentioned, that he found it 
necessary to send home for mathematical books of a higher 
character than was used in the school. In 185 1, Dr. Moulton 
matriculated at the London University, graduated as B. A. 
in 1854 with honours in mathematics, and took the M. A. 
in 1856, with the gold medal for mathematics and natural 
philosophy. In i860 he took the special scripture examina- 
tion at the London University with distinction in all sub- 
jects of examination, and in 1863 he passed the further scrip- 
tural examination in the first class with a prize. In 1874, he 
was made an honorary D. D. by the University of Edinburgh. 
He has served Methodism, in many offices. In 1858 he was 

•Previously described. 



MOULTONS IN ENGLISH HISTORY. 53 

appointed assistant classical tutor at Richmond, and after- 
wards classical tutor at the same college. In 1874 he was 
elected head master and governor of the Leys School at Cam- 
bridge. He has rendered service also to the churches and 
to the nation in general by his valuable labors as a member 
of the Old Testament Revision Committee. He has written 
a "History of the English Bible," a commentary on the Epis- 
tle to the Hebrews, and many learned articles in various 
publications. Though noted last, it is not forgotten that 
Dr. Moulton has translated from the German Winer's Gram- 
mar to the New Testament Greek. By this work he has 
laid all Greek Testament students under deep obligations. 
The Methodist people are naturally proud of Dr. Moulton, 
and pardonably so. He has by his wide attainments, and his 
successful head mastership at Cambridge, raised the prestige 
of his Church, and also the intellectual and moral ideal of its 
members. Richard G. Moulton, a brother of John Fletcher 
Moulton, is now well-known upon both sides of the Atlantic. 
During the year 1890, he came to America for the purpose of 
delivering a course of lectures upon ancient and modern 
literature. 

He was everywhere received with enthusiasm, not only 
for the scholarly manner in which he handled his subject, but 
also for his remarkable fluency and grace of delivery. 

In 1893, he was appointed professor of English Litera- 
ture, at Chicago University, and is still filling that position 
most acceptably.

CHAPTER VI. 

THE MOULTON ARMS. 

Extract from a paper written for the Historical Society 
of Newburyport, by Henry W. Moulton : 
Robert Noxen Toppan, Esq. 

My Dear Sir: — As "Committee of Decoration for the 
Newbury Historical Society," you requested me to deposit 
an authentic copy of the "Arms" of the branch of the Moul- 
ton family, to which it is my fortune to belong, in the ancient 
room that your society has devoted to the exhibition and 
preservation of these historic relics. In complying with this 
request, it may be well for me to give the data, or a brief ab- 
stract thereof, upon which the Newbury, Hampton, York 
and Parsonsfield Moultons and their descendants may claim 
these arms, as the escutcheon of their ancestors. 

In 1635, there came to Newbury, from Norfolk County, 
England, two brothers, John and Thomas Moulton. After 
remaining with the infant colony two years, they joined a 
party and proceeded to settle in Hampton, N. H. Their lands 
joined. 

In 1637, a lad of 17 years named William Moulton, came 
from Ormsby, Norfolk County, England, with Robert Page 
and family. These emigrants stopped two years near Moul- 
ton Hill, Newbury, and then proceeded to Hampton, N. H., 
where William Moulton married Page's daughter, Margaret. 
This William settled upon a farm, adjoining his two brothers, 
Thomas and John. 

Several years later, Thomas proceeded to York, Maine, 
and there made a permanent settlement. Among his de- 
scendants was Capt. Moulton, who fought the Indians at 
Norridgewock, and to whom Drake, in his history, gives 



THE MOULTON ARMS. 55 

the credit of the victory. This Moulton had been a captive 
among the Indians, when a babe. Col. Jeremiah Moulton, 
who commanded a regiment at the reduction of Louisburg, 
was a descendant of Thomas Moulton. Through him has 
come down to the present generation an ancient "coat of 
arms," emblazoned upon a kind of parchment paper. I have 
in my possession a copy of this old work, engraved flat 
upon black walnut. This artistic performance was the work 
of Mr. George H. Moulton of Haverhill, a grand-nephew of 
an old lady, Mrs. Goodwin, whose maiden name was Moul- 
ton, to whom the ancient arms had descended from Col. 
Jeremiah. 

I visited York expressly to examine the old arms and 
found them in possession of the Goodwin family. They re- 
side not far from the Marshall House, near York beach. 

The antiquity of the arms is perfectly apparent upon 
their face, although complete corroborative evidence was ob- 
tained from historic sources in the town. I found that my 
engraving by George H. Moulton was very accurate and 
faithful. 

Wishing to know what the "Office of Arms," in London, 
England, had in its archives relating to these arms, I applied 
to John T. Moulton, Esq., of Lynn, who has made extensive 
and important researches in this country and England for the 
last ten years, in behalf of the Moulton history, and that 
gentleman supplied me with information from the heraldic 
office of Great Britain, and other authentic sources, which 
he had received from abroad, ten years before. 

"All branches of the Moulton family had arms with 
devices somewhat different from each other in the minor 
details, yet alike in the main, viz. : a plain field, either of silver 
or blue : crossed by three horizontal bars, generally red, some- 
times sable. This continued for several hundred years, down 
to the arms which were granted in 1571 by the record; these 
are described as follows, viz: Moulton: Argent; 3 bars 
(gules) between eight escallop shells, sable; three, two, two 



56 MOULTON ANNALS. 

and one Crest, on a pellet a falcon rising argent. Granted in 

I57i." 

Now this is a description of the arms brought over by 

Thomas Moulton in 1635, excepting the color of bars and 
shells, and the grant might have been to his grandfather, as 
it was made only sixty-four years before the emigrant brought 
over the copy, still extant, to the North American wilder- 
ness. Tradition asserts this to be the fact, and that the 
escalloped shells were added to the very ancient arms of 
silver or blue field and three bars for zeal and valor in the 
crusades. 

When Thomas Moulton, the emigrant, removed from 
Hampton to York, he left his brothers John and William in 
Hampton, where they finally died, leaving large families. 
The youngest son of William, bearing the name of his father, 
came to Moulton Hill, Newbury, when a youth, and built 
him a house in the year 1683. Here he and his wife — Abi- 
gail Webster, a cousin of Hannah Dustin — lived and died. 
Meantime they raised a family from whom the Newbury 
Moultons, and those of Parsonsfield, Maine; Mansfield, Ohio, 
and many other places have descended. 

From a corner timber of this old house, the first Moulton 
house in Newbury, I have caused to be carved in relief an 
exact copy in size, figure and device, of the old York coat of 
arms. From this carved model I have caused to be cast in 
metal, copies of the ancient arms, with the silver field, golden 
shells, sable bars and silver falcon rising, surrounded by a 
royal-purple colored wreath, enamelled upon the surface, and 
have deposited one of them in compliance with your request. 

With great esteem, I have the honor to be, 

Yours truly, 

Henry W. Moulton. 

Note. — By thorough research of all the best-known works on heraldry 
in this vicinity, the writer has ascertained the accuracy of Mr. John T. 
Moulton's information with regard to the family arms. 

The crest differs according to the various branches of the family. 
In Devon County we find "a cubit arm, erect, vested gu., cuffed erm., 
holding in the hand ppr., a chaplet of roses of the first, leaved vert." 

In one London branch, the crest is a griffin; but Gloucester, Kent, 




iltxiltlfxTXt 



THE MOULTON ARMS. 57 

York and London bear the same crest which Thomas Moulton transported 
to this country: "On a pellet, a falcon rising ar." 

The search for the family motto has not been attended with the 
best success. 

We have already shown that Moulson is one and the same name as 
Moulton. It is therefore one branch of the family. In Burke's "General 
Armory of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales," we learn that the 
motto borne upon the arms of the Moulson family was, "Regi fidelis" — 
faithful to the king. 

The Houlton motto, given in the same work is "Semper fidelis" — 
always faithful. 

The Moultrie arms bears the sentiment, "Nunquam non fidelis" — 
never unfaithful. 

It is a rather striking fact that these various branches of the Moul- 
ton family all have the word faithful in their motto — the more striking 
because fidelity has ever been one of the leading characteristics of a 
typical Moulton. 

Since each branch of a family was at liberty to select its own motto, 
we, who are proud to preserve the Moulton arms, may choose for our- 
selves the one most pleasing among those borne by our ancestors or their 
kin. 

To the writer none seems more noble or appropriate than the second, 
quoted above — "Semper fidelis." 



CHAPTER VII. 

THE FIRST MOULTONS IN AMERICA. 

In the year 1624 or '25, a man by the name of Thomas 
Moulton became a settler in the wilderness of America,- with 
the Virginia colony at Jamestown. This is all that is known 
of him to the writer. 

All attempts to find descendants of that name in the 
South have failed thus far, but it is hoped that ere long more 
will be learned respecting him. Colored people in Cincinnati, 
Ohio, by the name of Moulton, report that they were "raised" 
in Fayette County, Kentucky. 

This country was settled by emigrants from the original 
English population of Virginia. Among them might have 
been Moultons who were descended from this pioneer emi- 
grant to the new world. 

The African slaves generally took their master's name; 
perhaps the colored Moultons referred to, and the dusky 
Moultons of Canada, escaped fugitive "slaves, were from the 
bondage of descendants of the Virginia Moulton emigrant. 

In 1629, what is now the fine old city of Salem, Essex 
County, Massachusetts, densely settled and full of commercial 
and manufacturing activity, was a dreary wilderness with a 
few log huts, sending up columns of smoke through the wild 
forest trees. 

Hunters with flint-locks and powder horns had not far 
to wander in quest of game. The partridge, "coon," deer 
and bear were brought in for dinners to the adventurous set- 
tlers who were landing, after weary voyages on slow .sailing 
barks, from England. 

Some of these new-comers brought a few of the comforts 
of civilization with them ; others, nothing but hunger, hope 
and willing hands. 



FIRST MOULTOXS IN AMERICA. 59 

Shelter and food were the immediate quest, and the 
forest had to supply both. It was a dreary outlook, but God 
had a work for these wanderers from over the sea. 

When a vague dread awoke from the echoes of the 
Indian whoop and the howl of wild animals in the woods, 
they turned their faces back toward the sea, but the moan 
of the waves on the shore told of the dead comrades who had 
voyaged with them, till they found a burial, beneath the waters. 

The shallops that brought them had sailed away, and the 
loneliness of their situation was oppressive. But God was 
"their refuge and strength, a very present help in all their 
troubles." They turned to Him and He showed them their 
work. It was the conquest of a savage wilderness, it was the 
planting of Christian homes where wild natives had reigned 
from the creation. 

They set about this work with a will, while in their lim- 
ited education, experience and knowledge, literally, God was 
their counsellor. 

When only a few groups of settlers had encamped here, 
Robert Moulton landed, from England, in 1629. With him 
came his brother James and a son Robert, also grown to 
manhood. This son was a clergyman of the Church of Eng- 
land. 

Of Robert, the elder, we have scraps of reliable history. 
From a letter to Governor Endicott we learn that Robert Moulton 
was entrusted with all the shipwright tools and supplies sent to 
the colony, the letter stipulating that Robert Moulton was to have 
"cheife charge." 

He was probably the first well-equipped ship-builder 
that ever landed in New England. He built the first vessels 
in Salem and the town of Medford near Boston. He was an 
able member of the colonial legislature, representing the town 
of Salem there. 

His brother James settled in what is now the town of 
Wenham, but was originally a part of Salem. His posterity 
scattered through Beverly and other parts of Essex County, 



60 MOULTON ANNALS. 

before migrating to more distant sections of the United States, 
as they have since done. 

Robert, the elder, went to Charlestown and there ac- 
quired real estate, what is known as Moulton's Point, being 
named for him. There is also a "Moulton Street" in Charles- 
town. 

The posterity of these two brothers is very numerous. They 
are now well represented in Xew Hampshire and Vermont 
and by emigrants thence to the west. There are many in 
u-resting and influential men. now in active life, l*>th in Xew 
England and the west, who are descendants of these brothers, 
some of whose biographies we shall give. 

An attempt was made by the clergyman, Robert, t<> estab- 
lish the English Church, in Salem, but it was opposed by 
Gov. Endicott and others in authority, as not in accord with 
the prevailing ideas of the coloni* 

Robert, the father, lived in the colony from l '''55 

During these years he was active and influential in the busi- 
ness and public affairs of the new country he had chosen as 
his home. 

James Moulton, hi> brother, was no less worthy of confi- 
dence and respect. His life was for the m<>-t part Bpent in 
clearing and cultivating lands, several miles away from where 
Robert made his abode.

The following account of Ebenezer Moulton, given on page 



ROBERT OF SALEM. 6"J 

466, Volume II., of the History of Baptists in New England, 
seems to be substantiated by record : 

"The first Baptist church in the county of Hampshire was 
formed in Brimfield, 4th of November, 1736. and Mr. Ebenezer 
Moulton was ordained their pastor, 4th of November, 1741. 
His father and a majority of the church opposed the work 
that was then cr< <i ult on in the land, while he and a minor part 
were alive in it: and they had much controversy about it for 
seven years, and then about fifteen of them told their experi- 
ences to each Other's satisfaction and signed new articles and 
a covenant, and Mr. Moulton took them as his church and 
would not allow any others to commune with them without 
coming in at this door. Elder Moulton was often called to 
other places to preach and baptize in and after 174a lie was 
called more than eight}' miles that year and baptized ten at 
Bridgewater and three in Kaynham. But as his people had 

:i trained up with prejudices against hireling ministers they 
did very little for the support of their own minister; therefore 
he took to mechandising when there were scarcely any mer- 
chants in that part of the country: and he seemed to prosper 
for a number of years and was a leader in building them a new 
meeting houi But towards the close of the war, which 

ended in 1763, money was plenty and merchants multiplied. 
and Mr. Moulton found himself involved in debt and his cred- 
itors ready to devour him and he fled to Xova Scotia where 
he preached in several places. About 177*) Mr. Moulton ob- 
tained Utters of li' from his creditors to come home and 
he was esl emed among his old people until he died there in 

[783."

ROBERT OF SALEM. Ill 



BIOGRAPHICAL. 

JOHX T. MOULTON. 

Among the descendants of Robert, we mention John T. 
Moulton, Esq., a citizen of Lynn, Essex County, living only a few 
miles from the spot where his ancestor landed in 1629. 

This gentleman inherits the best qualities of his race as 
shown in his enterprise, courage, fidelity and public spirit noted. 
especially in the "History of Essex County,*' recently published. 
We quote — 

Mr. Moulton was born in Lynn on the 7th of August, 1838. 
His father was J< seph Moulton. long known among US as a suc- 

jsful tanner and morocco manufacturer; and his mother was 
Relief Todd, a Vermont lady. 

The ancestor of the family was Robert Moulton, who was 
sent over by the London Company, in [629, to Governor Endi- 
OOtt, as master shipwright with six journeymen, to begin the ship- 
building business at Salem. The large island off Beverly shore, 
called the Misery, "receiving that name," says Telt "on account 
of a lisastrous shipwreck there,*" but gives no particulars. Robert 
Moulton was quite prominent in the early town and church affairs 
of Salem, and was granted two hundred acres of land in Salem 
village, now West Peabody, and was one of eight men disarmed 
at Salem for sympathizing with Rev. Wheelwright in his desire 
for libertv of conscience and free speech. 

Mr. Moulton, the subject of this .sketch, graduated from 
Lynn High School in 1855, having prepared for college under 
Jacob Batchelder. But he relinquished the idea of college-life 
on account of failing health, caused by too close application to 
study. He spent several years in his father's nursery in attending 
to the cultivation and propagation of fruit trees, shrubs and plants, 
having a strong natural love for such employment. 

The father of Mr. Moulton had served an apprenticeship of 
seven years at the leather manufacture, in all its branches and un- 
der him the son became an adept, so that in 1864 he was well 



112 MOULTON ANNALS. 

qualified to succeed to the then firmly established business. In 
that business, the manufacture of morocco leather, he still con- 
tinues, employing at the present time some sixty or seventy work- 
men. His factory stands on the spot where one of the ealiest tan- 
neries was established by the Lewises. In the chapter on the in- 
dustrial pursuits of Lynn, more may be found in relation to the 
business and the successive owners of the premises. The factory 
is quite extensive, and is located on Marion Street, opposite the 
foot of Centre. 

Mr. Moulton was born in the old Mansfield house, on the 
north side of Boston Street, nearly opposite the termination of 
Marion. It was built in 1666 by Robert Mansfield, and still re- 
mains the property of descendants of the builder, now of the 
eighth generation. The grandmother of Mr. Moulton was a 
Mansfield, and lineal descendant from Robert, just named. 

The integrity, prudence and promptness oi Mr. Moulton 
have made his services much in requisition for positions of pecu- 
liar trust, lie has already served twelve years as trustee of the 
public library, and has recently been elected for a new three- 
years' term, being likewise treasurer oi the Board of Director*. 
He is treasurer of the fraternities of Associated Charities, treas- 
urer of the Boston Street Methodist Society and treasurer oi the 
Trustees of the Lynn Free Public Forest. As mentioned else- 
where, he is a writer of merit in both prose and poetry, and has 
been the poet at several High School reunions. 

But the most distinguishing trait of Mr. Moulton. in a liter- 
ary way, is his love for historical research. 1 te IS a member of the 
Ww England Historical and Genealogical Society, and likewise 
of the Methodist Historical Society. 

The people of Lynn are greatly indebted to him for the col- 
lection and preservation of much that is useful as well as interest- 
ing in her history. He has prepared copies of the earliest exist- 
ing town records, and had them published in the Historical Col- 
lections of the Essex Institute. Fie has also collected and pub- 
lished the inscriptions from the oldest graveyards of Lynn, Lynn- 
field and Saugus, and has prepared genealogies of the Moulton 
and Mansfield families. A few months since, as mentioned in 



ROBERT OF SALEM. 113 

another connection, he, with Mr. Isaac O. Guild, was at the ex- 
pense of erecting a suitable stone to mark the resting-place of 
"Moll Pitcher," the renowned fortune-teller of Lynn, perhaps 
the most remarkable personage known in our history. 

Mr. Moulton, it is agreeable to add, is always ready to con- 
tribute from his abundant store any information he may possess 
regarding our early families, and the charisteristics and doings of 
our fathers. And all well wishers of the community will join in 
rejoicing in the prosperity of one so worthy. 

Mr. Moulton was united in marriage with Miss S. Fannie 
Sweetser in December, 1867, and their children are one son and 
two daughters. 

Since the abovr was written. Mr. John T. Moulton has 
passed on, "to join the great majority." 

The author of this volume feels a personal loss in the death 

of this noble and scholarly man. His deep and careful researches 

in genealogical matters were of invaluable assistance in the 
preparation of this volume.

GEN T . RUSSELL A. ALGER. 

There are many eminent men in the United States and in 
England who arc sons of Moulton mothi \mong them all, 

none could be mure cordially welcomed to these pages than — 

General Russell A. Alger, 1 , of War. who is claimed 

as a citizen of Detroit, Michigan — the state of which he was for- 
merly Governor, but who is in realty known all through the 
United States as a citizen of the whole country. 

Gen. Alger'> splendid record as a soldier and citizen has 
been supplemented by the exercise of a munificent generosity 
to numerous worthy objects, the cause of education, religion, 
charity, not to mention the innumerable gifts to his old comrades 
of the army who have become poor and unfortunat 

For the trait- 50 tenderly and nobly exhibited with other per- 
sonal characteristics, he is beloved by his countrymen, universallv. 

At the great Republican Convention, in Chicago, Gov. Alger 
came much nearer the nomination for President than the public

Russell A. Alger was born in Lafayette township, Medina 
County, Ohio, February 27, [836. His father came from the 
State of Connecticut and his mother from Vermont. The family 
tree was deeply rooted in Xew England soil, for Grandfather 
Alger was a native of Massachusetts, and for many generations 
both branches of the house, the Moultons and the Algers, had 
flourished in the land of sturdy men and fair women. The sub- 
ject of our sketch just escaped adding his illustrious name to the

familv record in New England, for it was the year preceding his 
introduction to the dread uncertainties of existence that his pa- 
rents removed to Ohio. Young, hopeful and courageous, they 
had gone into the woods of Medina County as pioneers. The 
robust New Englander, like hundreds of the same thrifty, hardy 
people, proposed clearing a farm to make himself and his family 
a home. It was there Russell A. Alger was born. 

After several years of hard work, the primitive farm and 
limited improvements were swept away by a mortgage, leaving 
the father a poor man and in debt. From that fatal blow to the 
chief ambition of his life, he never rallied. Renting a farm, he 
was able to support his family, though at times privation re- 
stricted them to the barest necessities of life. The protracted 
illness of the father added to threat of destitution to the reality 
of pressing want. It was then that the boy showed the material 
of which he was made, and gave promise of the wonders he has 
since attained. In the darkest days of their trouble, when actual 
suffering was at hand and the father powerless to interpose, the 
future general met the emergency with that same fortitude, man- 
liness and success that have marked his efforts through subse- 
quent years. There was no repining, lamentation or attempt to 
ask aid from others, but the sturdy little hero, gravely appreciat- 
ing his responsibilities as the eldest male member of the household 
available for duty, put as much corn in a bag as he could reason- 
ably be expected to travel under, slung it across his shoulder, 
made an early start, carried the burden to a grist mill nine miles 
distant, waited until it was ground, and as bravely trudged back 
with the means of relief for those to whom loyalty beyond his 
years had made the hard service a bounder] duty. 

Comparing the fast-falling blows of grief and sorrow, which 
forced the gravest responsibilities of age upon the shoulders of 
early youth, with the bounty and happiness which have crowned 
the life that became better, purer and stronger 'from the ordeal 
that would have wrecked an ordinary nature, there seems ap- 
parently a divine law of compensation. When young Alger was 
twelve years old, his mother died. Fortunately she had lived to 
see her eldest son, singularly mature in thought and disposition,

the mainstay of the family, and steadily pursuing a course that 
needed but the guaranty ©f health to assure a competency honor- 
ably acquired. Upon her death he at once hired out to a man for 
board, clothing and three months at the district school. While 
carrying out the terms of this apparently one-sided contract, a 
double affliction was added to that which deprived him of his 
mother. First his father died., and a little later his elder sister. 
Thus, at thirteen years of age, he was left with a younger brother 
and sister and not a dollar in the world. 

In 1850, the present favored son of Michigan attained his 
fourteenth year and with it came a determination to demand 
something more for his services than the bare maintainance of 
body and soul in their originally established relations. There was 
a forecaste of business shrewdness in carrying out this momen- 
tous resolve. The professed estimate of young Alger's services 
to the various farmers, with whom he opened negotiations hov- 
ered with distressing unanimity about the discouraging figure of 
$3 per month. He finally temporized with this prevalent feeling 
by inducing a farmer to take him at $3 for the first month, $3 
for the second, and $5 each for the next four. The terms were 
faithfully complied with, by either party thereto, and at the end of 
six months, through a little extra work that was evidently figured 
with the utmost regard for accuracy, Alger found himself the 
possessor of precisely $27.53. 

During the winters named, up to 1855-56, Alger attended the 
academy. Throughout that and the succeeding winter, he taught 

the "deestrict" school, and had the felicitous as well as varied 
experience of "boardin' 'round." It is of tradition that he made 
a good, level-headed, practical instructor, was sole manager of 
the institution and made manifest that ability as a disciplinarian 
which in later years added luster to the brilliancy of his military 
career. The first winter he received $18 per month and the sec- 
ond $25. Then, as from the time that his brother and sister fell 
to his care, he divided his earnings with them, he thus did much 
toward clothing them. Never during these early days did he for- 
get the sacredness of this trust nor fall short in the duty of its 
fulfillment. 



ROBERT OF SALEM. WJ 

In the spring of 1857, Alger entered the law office of Wolcott 
and Upson in Akron, O., and in acquiring a knowledge of his 
chosen profession brought to the work a logical mind, a strong 
body and that same courage which had brought him through a 
sea of troubles where ninety-nine men in a hundred would have 
foundered. At the expiration of two years he passed a highly 
creditable examination before the Supreme Court at Columbus, 
was admitted to the bar of Ohio, and became associated with the 
law firm of Otis and Coffinberry at Cleveland. But, for a young 
man, whose life from his earliest boyhood had been chiefly spent 
in outdoor work of the most active kind, confinement and hard 
study were too severe a tax on his health, and the cherished 
hope of a professional career was perforce abandoned. 

On the last day of the year i860, Alger went to Michigan, 
where he has found honor, wealth and distinction, giving a full 
return to the state of his adoption in his services as a soldier and 
a statesman, his munificient charities as a private citizen, and the 
great public inmprovements which are the outgrowth of his 
large business enterprises, lie landed without means, but with a 
little borrowed capital entered into the lumber business at Grand 
Rapids with C. Goddard as a partner. Their career was a brief 
one and eventful, chiefly in the collapse of the enterprise. The 
Chicago firm to which they shipped their lumber failed, landing 
the young lumber merchants high and dry. 

The next venture that the hero of our story made in Michi- 
gan affords the most striking example of his almost infallible 
judgment and admirable good taste. April 2, 1861, he married 
Miss Annette H. Henry, daughter of \V. G. Henry of Grand 
Rapids. Beautiful, accomplished and possessed of those traits of 
character which give impetus to the aspirations of the man who 
is so fortunate as to secure their devotion, she was worthily mated 
with the man who is now among the most prominent figures of the 
country. Of that union there have been born four daughters and 
five sons. Of these, two sons and three daughters are now living. 
In each of the children appears a striking resemblance to the 
father, whose early experiences here recorded stand in striking 
contrast with the comforts, advantages and happiness he has se- 



Il8 MOULTON ANNALS. 

cured them, and made doubly precious as the result of a career 

which even the blindest malevolence can not assail. No private 

residence in Detroit is better known to the people of the city and 

state than the magnificient, hospitable mansion of Gen. Alger, on 

Fort Street. 

When the war of the rebellion came, the inevitable result of 

an antagonism of interests, sentiments and social structure in the 
two great sections of the Union, Gen. Alger was among those 

who took up arms in defence of the flag, by enlisting in the Sec- 
ond Michigan cavalry, August 26, 1861. Though without the 
training, he bore the trade mark of the natural soldier, was elected 
captain and assigned to Company C. From the outset the young 
captain entered into the spirit of a soldier's life. He loved mili- 
tary discipline and precision, and found pleasure alike in the 
pomp and strife of warfare. He seemed made for a soldier and 
entered unreservedly into the spirit of a soldier's life. 

Through the delays of preparation, drill and getting to the 
front, it was the spring of 1862 before the Second fought at New 
Madrid, which was captured and occupied March 3. Thence 
through the overflowed bottoms of the Mississippi they moved on 
to the bombardment of Island No. 10, when the fort was reduced 
and the purposes of the expedition compassed in a way that drew 
the warmest words of commendation from Gen. Halleck. 

On May 29 came the first battle of Bornville, Miss., where 
Capt. Alger won honorable mention from Col. Sheridan in his 
report of the capture. A month later this place was the scene of 
another and more desperate conflict, in which Gen. Alger's gal- 
lantry came near inviting his death. He was sent, as a forlorn 
hope, with four saber companies, two from the Second Michigan 
and two from the Second Iowa, fighters totally ignorant of what 
constituted a whipping, to the rear of Chamber's forces. A suc- 
cessful execution of the order involved a march of ten miles, 
which brought the captain's command directly in the rear of the 
enemy on the Blackland road. With his 90 invincibles, the cap- 
tain made the dash and but 48 lived to see the route which made 
possible the victory of 700 over eight full regiments who were 
driven until darkness and a swamp made pursuit impossible. In 



ROBERT OF SALEM. 119 

the boldly executed charge, the captain was dismounted, had his 
side crushed in and five ribs broken. Again he was "brought to 
the notice" of the general commanding, and received more sub- 
stantial recognition in his promotion to a majorship. 

Receiving a leave of absence because of his injuries, Maj. 
Alger was taken to his home in Grand Rapids, but was sufficiently 

recovered to rejoin his regiment in September, 1862. It was soon 
ordered to Kentucky, and participated actively in the Buell -Bragg 

campaign. The Second, Gen. Alger commanding, was the first 
of the Union forces to strike the outposts of Bragg's army at 
Perrvville. It was the initiative in a running seven day's fight 
that was as sanguinary as it was stubbornly contested and vali- 
antly won. Following and harrassing Bragg to the Cumberland 
Mountains, the federal forces fell back on account of lack of for- 
age, and that campaign was at an end. 

October 16, another promotion came, and Lieut. Col. Alger 
was seen with the Sixth Michigan cavalry recruited at Grand 
Rapids. It was ordered to Washington and afterward became a 
part of that famous Michigan cavalry brigade under that match- 
less leader, Gen. Custer. In June, 1863, Alger became a colonel 
by promotion, taking command of the Fifth Michigan, also a part 
of the fighting brigade. In this position, he succeeded Col. "Free" 
Nowell, a popular commander, and encountered the opposition 
inevitable toward an officer chosen from another regiment. No 
sooner had the boys got onto the field of active work, however, 
than he had won their support and confidence. While he was 
strict to the extent necessary in securing the best service, he was 
just and considerate. He asked no one to go where he would not 
lead, and the more fight there was in a soldier, the higher was the 
estimation in which he held Col. Alger. 

Omitting intervening matters it is worthy of record that Gen. 
Alger's regiment first located the confederates at Gettysburg, and 
drove their cavalry from the city. The reception of the Michigan 
boys by the good people who were enduring the first pangs of 
practical warfare was an ovation. They were covered with 
flowers, feasted on the fat of the land and tempted with the 
choicest exhilerants the place afforded. June 30, near Hanover, 



120 M0ULT0N ANNALS. 

Alger's forces were surprised by Stuart's cavalry. The Fifth was 
armed with Spencer rifles, and dismounting fought on foot, rout- 
ing and capturing a number of prisoners. July 3, the same 
forces met, and again the prowess of the Fifth aided to victory 
after a fierce contest. It was in this engagement that Maj. Noah 
H. Ferry, brother of Ex-Senator Ferry, was killed. The story of 
that terrible cavalry fight at Gettysburg, the pursuit of the flying 
enemy, the fighting by the way and the battle of Boonesborough 
form one of the most thrilling chapters of the war. Through it 
all, there was no more dauntless and intrepid leader than Col. 
Alger, and never did an officer command a body of men more 
worthy of his leadership. In the deeds of personal daring and 
heroic action the Michigan Cavalry Brigade won added laurels 
and left a record to which the State will ever turn with pride and 
gratitude. 

At Boonsboro', June 8, the enemy were met in force. The 
Fifth was dismounted, and in leading a charge to dislodge a 
strongly posted body in a piece of woods, Col. Alger was again 
severely wounded and carried from the field. Brady Station, 
Culpepper Court House, the Wilderness, Yellow Tavern, Peters- 
burg, Winchester, Front Royal and many other engagements of 
more or less severity, tell their own story, and the records of 
history afford hone more fascinating. 

After Gen. Alger had participated in sixty-six battles and 
skirmishes, including the most desperate of the war, shattered in 
health and cared for in a hospital because of injuries received from 
a fallen horse, he resigned September 20, 1864. In just recogni- 
tion of his gallant and meritorious services, he was brevetted 
brigadier general and major general. No words of praise can 
add to the merit of his services or purity of his patriotism. No 
calumny can detract from them. He did his full duty and adorned 
it with that breath of conception and brilliancy of execution which 
few men can command. 

Through the lessons of his childhood, Gen. Alger's heart 
goes out to the poor. His experiences of the war begot a love for 
the soldier. In no one has the veteran a warmer friend or more 
loyal comrade. That a man worthily wore the blue is a passport to 



ROBERT OF SALEM. 121 

his good graces. Many such a one with whom fate has dealt un- 
kindly, owes relief to this veteran of better fortune. Some of his 
pleasantest memories cluster about his army life and the associa- 
tions to which it led. He is an active and open-handed member of 
the G. A. R. About the camp-fire in these times of peace he is one 
of the old boys. The necessary distinctions of an organized army 
ceased to exist with him when the army disbanded, and those who 
comprised it returned to the duties of civil life. All of them were 
soldiers and none of them were more. With a man of Gen. Alger's 
type, this leaves no room for distinctions. 

In his record as a soldier and broad spirit of democracy as a 
citizen, Gen. Alger is doubly popular with those who fought for 
the old flag. He was elected commander-in-chief of the G. A. R. 
at the National Encampment, and during the year of service in this 
position, acquitted himself splendidly. 

In the experiences and qualities of Gen. Alger as briefly re- 
viewed are found an explanation of the wonderful business record 
he has made. It was in 1865 that he came to Detroit, and in 
1866 he engaged in the vessel business, to bridge the way to 
greater undertakings. He deliberately and conclusively made up 
his mind that the modern El Dorado was to be found in the pine 
woods. He reasoned broadly and with irresistible logic, as in all 
things. He did not study the ups and downs of the market, what 
the output was the year before, what the demand was liable to be 
the next season, but simply knew that the timber supply was de- 
creasing each year, while the demand was as constantly increasing. 
It was a conclusion as unanswerable as truth that the price must 
advance. The proposition is as simple as it is convincing, but how 
few realized it when the choice pine lands were open to all cofers 
at $1.25 per acre. 

With Gen. Alger, to decide was to act. He saw no occasion 
to consult or to deliberate regarding a demonstrated fact. He 
saw a sure thing and started out to capture it. He went into the 
north woods of Michigan and, having arranged to secure some 
funds, began hunting and entering government lands and making 
small purchases. 

He organized the best lumbering facilities ever known up to 



122 MOULTON ANNALS. 

the time of their adoption. When it came to his mind that steam 
engines, logging cars and railways could be utilized in such 
gigantic operations as his company had in contemplation, he at 
once arranged for, and provided them. 

As pine began to yield money in Michigan, Gen. Alger began 
to look for more of it. That original proposition through which 
he had seen the high road to fortune, was not impaired in logic or 
truth. The great redwood forests of California with their mam- 
moth trees of such varied utility, struck his constant fancy and he 
invested largely. In this connection occurs an incident illustrative 
of his knowledge of everything in which he is interested. A 
$25,000 saw mill out there yielding a daily revenue of $2,500, was 
recently burned. He knew every bit of the peculiar machinery 
destroyed, just what was essential to the resumption of operations, 
and had things underway to that end as promptly and effectively 
as though he had been upon the spot. 

General Alger organized the Manistique Lumber Company, 
of which he is president, and among the principal stockholders. 
He built the Detroit, Bay City and Alpena Railroad, giving the 
upper shore its first outlet by rail, and is president of the company. 
He is a large holder of pine lands on Puget Sound, Washington. 
He owns extensive tracts of pine and mineral lands in the South. 
He is president of the Detroit and Rio Grande Live Stock Com- 
pany of New Mexico. He has mining interests of great value in 
Canada. He is a director in the Detroit National Bank, State 
Savings Bank, Peninsular Car Company and Detroit Brass and 
Rolling Company. These are among his principal business enter- 
prises, but there are scores of others in which his capital and his 
brains play a prominent part. 

With all these advantages, Gov. Alger never held but one 
civil office in the gift of the people. Wedded to the Republican 
party, when the life of the republic was at stake, he has always 
been loyal in his allegience, giving liberally in aid of its campaigns, 
bringing to its councils the clear, accurate judgment which has 
been an infallible guide to the acquisition and successful manage- 
ment of his great business interests. In 1884, the Republicans of 
Michigan wanted a leader. 



ROBERT OF SALEM. 123 

Their long line of supremacy had been broken by the election 
of a Democrat, two years before. The days when anybody 
could carry Michigan had passed into history. The Greenbackers 
and the Democrats had allied their forces. They were flushed with 
victory, and held the reins of State Government. They had full 
faith that again they could sweep the State. The third party 
also presented itself as a troublesome factor in the unsolved prob- 
lem. It was sturdy of growth, implacable in its opposition to po- 
litical combines or compromises, and drew at least three-fourths 
of its uncertain strength from the Republican party. It was also 
a presidential year, and there were well-grounded fears that Michi- 
gan might at length be removed from the column of Republican 
States. The opposition were under consummate leadership, and 
would leave nothing undone to insure a successful issue from the 
contest. 

Gen. Alger had led too many a forlorn hope, however, to 
lower his standard while there was the shadow of a chance. He 
had an abiding faith in the Republicanism of the upper peninsular, 
and saw in its returns the one hope of a party triumph. His con- 
fidence was not misplaced, and when the official vote was canvassed 
he was the chosen Governor of Michigan by a vote of 190,840 
votes against 186,887 f° r his opponent. 

The details of the Alger Administration in Michigan would 
be but a repetition of state records, and is yet fresh in the minds 
of those who find interest in such matters. Gen. Alger, by nature, 
training and experience is eminently democratic. Those who may 
have formed an opinion that because of his wealth and well- 
earned prominence, he is not approachable, and is without those 
generous sympathies which mark the true man while they touch 
the chord of popular approval, are widely mistaken. No man will 
listen more patiently or respond more cheerfully to a just appeal, 
be it what it may. He is peculiarly free from those evidences of 
false pride and petty weaknesses which too often mar the character 
of men who have lifted themselves from the ranks to the possession 
of power and affluence. As Governor, this marked and admirable 
trait of character was one of the first to attract attention and elicit 
approbation. 



124 MOULTON ANNALS. 

The capacity of the Governor for work, his quick insight 
into and firm grasp of great affairs, his promptness of action and 
accuracy of judgment were all illustrated in his administration. 
He was a fearless adherent to that line of action which he thought 
to be right, and if his devotion to the entire people placed a stumb- 
ling block in the way of some pet party project, the project was 
invariably the sufferer. In matters of moment to the State, Re- 
publicans were always called to their discussion, and just as regu- 
larly the opposition was invited to the councils. This eminent 
fairness of the man and unselfish desire to do what was wisest 
and best, regardless of party interests, won him a confidence and 
respect in the Michigan Legislature which few men had ever been 
so fortunate as to secure. 

There is a rare and admirable feature of Gen. Alger's charac- 
ter that deserves a prominence of mention that is not attained in 
a chronicle necessarily brief. It is his unbounded generosity and 
his consideration, not only for the rights, but the comfort and hap- 
piness of his fellow-men. To say that he is a princely giver does 
not convey the full measure of credit to which he is entitled. 
There is not a taint of stinginess or littleness in his being. No 
gift of his can be traced to a desire for self-aggrandizement or a 
wish to impress the world with his great wealth. His philan- 
trophy is not of that quality which seeks a monument to its pos- 
sessor and secures therewith the world's approval for the bestowal 
of charity. His gifts go with an impulsive response to the appeals 
of hunger, nakedness and suffering, as they confront him in the 
daily walks of life. No thought of Gen. Alger detracts from the 
kindness of heart which impels his unstinted generosity. He meets 
a shivering newsboy on his way from his residence to his office. 
Forthwith a carte blanche order is given to fit these little mer- 
chants who need it with suits and overcoats, and that practical 
charity has been repeated by the man whose heart may have been 
moved as he looked back through the lapse of years, and saw a 
little lad bravely fighting back the waves of poverty as they beat 
against the door of the home when he was the sole dependence, 
there. Thousands of his money have gone to destitute families 
in Detroit, to supply flour, coal, wood and such other relief as the 



ROBERT OF SALEM. 125 

kindest consideration for the suffering might suggest. These 
munificent deeds of charity are so fresh in the minds of the peo- 
ple that everything is recalled in their suggestion. They raise no 
reminder of stone and mortar, but they bring the more precious 
return of self-approval and the more fervent felicity of blessings 
invoked by the widow and the orphan. The General could draw 
his check for $40,000 in return for the "Last Hours of Mozart," 
but his first use of it was to give all a chance to see the grand 
painting, and to devote the proceeds to the relief of want. To 
enumerate his charities, all quietly done so far as he can control 
the matter, would be an endless task. He loves to give for the 
happiness it secures, and in no direction does his money go with 
a return of greater satisfaction. 

This regard for others is seen in another, though entirely 
different direction. Nearly twenty years ago it became a saying 
with the woodsmen of Northern Michigan, "Work for Alger; 
don't take anything else if you can hire with him." Those were 
the days when the golden returns were still in the future, yet 
under those adverse circumstances, General Alger was doing 
more for the great army of workers in the pine woods than any 
other man on earth. 

Through all the intervening years this system has never been 
varied. So far as reform has gone from the crying evils of poor 
food, low wages, payment in orders and few comforts, Alger has 
led, and in many instances forced others to follow his example, in 
order to secure the men necessary to carry on their work. It was 
only recently that he established a store at Black River, and that 
was as a convenience to the thriving village that has sprung up 
there. Any employe can get his money at any time of the month, 
and spend it where he pleases. The camp table is better than that 
of many a hotel, and the equipments cannot be surpassed. Though 
always employing a large number of men — there are now 1,000 
hired by Alger, Smith & Co. alone — he has never had any trouble 
or differences with his employes, much less a strike. It is a tact 
almost incredible that with all his transactions, accounting as they 
do for the accumulation of millions in a comparatively few years, 
Gen. Alger has never sued a man nor been sued.

CHARLES WILLIAM MOULTON. 

Memorial 

Adopted by the Bar of Cincinnati 

and Hamilton County, 

January 27, 1888. 

"Charles William Moulton was born of New England paren- 
tage on the 16th day of December, 1830, in Cuyahoga County, 
Ohio. His mother was a Wallace, a direct descendant of the 
great Scottish chieftain. 

"The advantage of a common school education he supple- 
mented by his own exertions with a course at the Brooklyn 
Academy, near Cleveland, and a select school at Medina. In 
order to be able to pursue the studies of his chosen profession of 
the law he accepted a clerkship in the mercantile establishment of 
a leading merchant of Cleveland, where he remained until he was 
ready to be called to the Bar, when he went to Columbus and was 
admitted by the Supreme Court in 1854, not long after which ho 
was married to Frances B. Sherman, daughter of Hon. Charles 
Sherman, one of the early Judges of the Supreme Court of Ohio. 
He began active practice at Toledo with Hon. George R. Haynes, 
now one of the Judges of the Common Pleas Court in that city, 
with whom he remained until the breaking out of the civil war, 
shortly after which he received the appointment of Captain and 
Assistant Quartermaster in the volunteer service of the United 
States, from which he was subsequently transferred to the regular 
army with the rank of Captain and promoted to that of Lieutenant- 
Colonel of volunteers, being assigned to duty first at Beverly, West 
Virginia, and then to Gallipolis, Ohio, and next to the post of 
Depot Quartermaster of the City of Cincinnati, where he remained 
until the close of the Rebellion, when he resigned his commission 
in order to renew his professional calling in Cincinnati, forming 
an association with Hon. Charles T. Sherman, afterwards United 
States District Judge of Cleveland, and Hon. M. H. Tilden, after- 
wards one of the Judges of the Superior Court of Cincinnati. 

"Subsequently he formed co-partnerships with Hon. W. M.

Sherman, Tilden and Moulton ; Tilden, Moulton and Tilden, 
the latter a son of Judge Tilden ; Moulton and Johnson, Moul-

States in 1867. He established branch offices for the practice 
of his profession in the cities of Washington and New York, 
and while at the latter city was suddenly attacked by the illness 
which culminated in his unexpected death on Tuesday morning, 
January 24, 1888, and his remains were brought to his home in

ROBERT OF SALEM. 120, 

HON. W. M. BATEMAN'S REMARKS. 

Mr. Chairman : 

I do not often take part in memorial occasions of this 
character. But now I should do violence to my own feelings 
and my sense of duty to a dead friend to remain silent. 

My acquaintance with Col. Moulton began 'over twenty 
years ago. He had recently left the army and the vast labors 
of a most responsible position, to resume the practice of his 
profession, which had been interrupted by the Rebellion. He 
returned to his law office and books with the ardor and con- 
fident purpose which inspired and characterized his whole 
career in life. He used his whole available means in gathering 
together a ligrary, and eschewing everything else he addressed 
himself to the work of the law. His immense business as Quar- 
termaster, in which he had purchased and distributed enormous 
supplies to the armies and extended his business activities over 
half the continent, had greatly enlarged and diversified the range 
of his business knowledge and experience, and had extended his 
business acquaintance into half the states of the Union. This 
business knowledge and acquaintance was of great advantage in 
his profession. 

During the year 18G7, I formed a partnership with him 
and Mr. Johnson, which continued until I entered the office of 
the District Attorney in the year 1869. My relations with 
him thereafter, until his untimely death, remained intimate and 
confidential. I enjoyed the full advantage of his entire friendship. 

We all play in the greater or less artificial life of our civ- 
ilized society, our dramatic parts, in which, to a greater or 
less extent, the real man and woman is concealed underneath 
conventionalism and etiquette. The polished man, in whom 
every natural impulse is restrained or repressed and the ex- 
pression of every honest opinion is modified or falsified, often 
exhibits an artificial character that bears but little resemblance 
to the real. Manners, thus, while it often generates hypocrisy 
and something worse, more frequently polishes rudeness and 
educates all in the habit and natural sentiment of kindness 
toward others. In the intimacy of Col. Moulton's life, in his 



I30 MOULTON ANNALS. 

home, and among his friends, when his natural qualities ap- 
peared in undress, his character was presented in its most at- 
tractive aspect. I knew him in these situations. He was in 
his family loving, genial and tender. He was the companion 
of his household, always forbearing and tolerant. He was a 
faithful friend, and in his social relation he rarely indulged in 
gossip of any kind, seldom criticised personal conduct and 
character, but whenever he did, he did it openly, with no 
shirking of responsibility. The topics of his conversation were 
usually impersonal and abstract. He was fond of the discus- 
sions of questions of law, philosophy and history; and, if not 
always right, was always original. In his most intimate re- 
lations he always had a natural sense of personal dignity and 
manliness that excluded familiarity. Towards his inferiors 
he was always kindly; towards his equals, courteous; and 
towards the place-holder or men of eminence, respectful, 
without servility. He was always polite, and the provocation 
must have been extreme to provoke him to passion. He was 
a pleasant and generous associate, full of suggestion, untiring 
in his work, and remarkably inventive. As an adversary he 
was courtly, but neither asked nor gave quarter, and at the 
close of the case his competitor thoroughly found that every 
resource of opposition had been exhausted. Although he re- 
sumed his profession after the war with a good library, he con- 
tinued always afterward to invest his means in books, and 
died leaving a very large library. 

Colonel Moulton was a desultory, but a very diligent, 
reader in general literature outside of his profession, and with 
his more intimate friends was fond of debating every variety of 
speculative questions, and in no respect did he excite more sur- 
prises among his associates than in the ingenuity and originality 
of his views upon questions of philosophy, history and literature, 
in the wide range of discussion in which he indulged. 

Colonel Moulton was a very upright man. The extent of 
his transactions and the value of property by him bought and 
paid for during the career as Quartermaster was enormous — 
was much of the time necessarily irregular, and at all times 



ROBERT OF SALEM. I3I 

presenting constant and powerful temptations to private 
peculation. His tremendous accounts were settled to a copper, 
and he left the service as poor as when he entered. Not a 
breath of scandal or accusation ever existed as to the perfect 
integrity of his official life. He was always and in every re- 
lation of life, an honest man. Than this no man can have a 
prouder record. 

His family relations were always tender and delicate, and 
his social, genial and warm-hearted. There was an undercur- 
rent of sentiment in both that the world knew but little of, 
who only met him in business or politics and observed that 
dash, banter and aggressiveness that he manifested in the 
outer relations of life. 

His going to New York was probably a mistake. His 
health was already so far impaired by the heavy work and ex- 
posure of his active life as to need husbanding and rest, rather 
than increased work. The exactions of society, the demands 
of a new business in a great city, and the influence ot an un- 
favorable climate were too much for him. 

I lose in his death a friend whom I have loved and with 
whom I have had long and close intimacy. When, after a life 
of over a half a century, a man takes his account of stock, he 
will be surprised to find how few in the world's millions he can 
count among his intimate and confidential friends, and how 
great the loss he must sustain in the death of each. 

REMARKS OF J. WM. JOHNSON. 

The last speaker to address the meeting was J. Win. John- 
son, whose remarks were as follows : 
Mr. Chairman : 

I am usually on occasions of this character to be found 
among the silent mourners, and, if I were to consult only my 
own tastes and inclinations, I would, even in the present in- 
stance, prefer to shroud my sentiments in my grief, notwith- 
standing that they arise from the loss of my oldest and dearest 
associate and friend, whose memory we have met here to com- 
memorate. 



13-2 MOULTON ANNALS. 

But we are such frail and fallible creatures and human 
motives are so often misconstrued, and besides my relations 
with Colonel Moulton, as clerk, student, partner, associate and 
friend, extending for a period of more than a quarter of a cen- 
tury, present so peculiar and exceptional a chain of circumstances 
that I fear to be silent were to be unjust; not to him whose 
remains now lie clad in their mortal habiliments only — for he 
knows, as I have the faith which leads me to believe that he is 
yet alive in the spirit, that I shall cherish his memory to my dying 
day — but to the living, lest they should perchance from my silence 
think somewhat less of the merits of a man whom to have known 
intimately and well was to have realized the full fruition of all 
that is good, noble and true in the fellowship of man. 

I say this because I feel that in him I had a perfectly 
loyal friend — with all the depth and devotion which that term 
implies; a relationship which, together with that found in the 
family circle, constitute the highest and best form of associa- 
tion we, on this side of the grave, arc permitted to enjoy. 
His was not 

"A summer friendship, 
Whose fluttering leaves, that shadowed us 
In our prosperity, and, with the least gust, 

Drop off 
In the Autumn of adversity." 
I was but a lad, just out of my teens, when I first met 
Colonel, then Captain. Moulton, in the Fall of 1862, at Gal- 
lipolis, Ohio, where he was stationed as Depot Quartermaster, 
in charge of supplies for the United States forces then operat- 
ing in West Virginia. About this time, the defeat of General 
Hunter took place and the Union troops retreated down the 
Kanawha Valley, resulting almost in a rout or stampede, 
causing a large accumulation of property at Gallipolis, which 
came within Captain Moulton's custody. This property con- 
sisted of horses, mules, wagons, forage and other supplies in 
immense quantities, and worth hundreds of thousands of dol- 
lars — the ownership of which was a mixed matter; for while 
a large portion was Government property, yet a great deal of 



ROBERT OF SALEM. I 33 

it belonged to individuals whose residence or claims were un- 
known, or, if known, were rebel sympathizers who dare not 
assert their title. The result was that when Colonel Moulton 
came to turn over his post to his successor all this property 
was found on his returns, making his balance that much over 
what his accounts called for. I need not intimate what oppor- 
tunity was presented for a less scrupulous, I will not say less 
honest, man to have profited personally by these circumstances, 
and that, too, without the slightest fear of detection or even 
of accountability ; for. as I have said, so much of these over- 
balances were from "found property," not belonging to his 
principal. He left Gallipolis to assume the important duties 
of Depot Quartermaster at Cincinnati, having been promoted 
to the rank of Colonel and transferred from the volunteer ser- 
vice into the regular army. At that time the supplies for the 
Union army in the South and West were furnished from this 
point, and the purchase or manufacture of all the clothing and 
equipage was under his charge, the monthly disbursements for 
which were upwards of a million dollars. The total aggregate 
of his disbursement while at Cincinnati was somewhere in the 
neighborhood of forty millions of dollars, all of which was de- 
posited to his credit at the Assistant United States Depository 
and subject only to his individual check. Yet such was his 
complete mastery of details and great executive ability as well 
as accuracy and thoroughness, that, when he came to have 
a final settlement with the Treasury Department and release 
his bondsmen, there was no more trouble or difficulty experi- 
enced than if the transactions were few in number and insig- 
nificant in amount, and he received an acknowledgment of 
clear acquittance in terms highly complimentary and flattering. 
No man had greater or better opportunities for enriching 
himself than he during the term of his official service in the 
army, and that, too, without any danger of being charged with 
having done so improperly or in betrayal of any trust, or in 
any way as reflecting upon his integrity, or honor. But he 
preferred to follow the dictates of the "still, small voice," and 
left the service not only as poor but also as honest as he had 



134 MOULTON ANNALS. 

entered it. What greater meed of praise or distinction could 
be bestowed on any man, especially if we recall the character 
of the terms and the low standard of moral honesty which pre- 
vailed with reference to government contracts, public prop- 
erty and contraband of war? 

With the end of the Rebellion, he foresaw only a life of 
inactivity if he continued in the service, and this he could not 
tolerate, and therefore resigned his commission in the regular 
army and re-entered upon the practice of his profession in this 
city in the Fall of 1865. 

As to his subsequent career and success at the bar, and 
his legal attainments, it is not necessary for me to speak at 
length. But I may with perfect propriety, and with emphasis, 
declare that he possessed a mind of wonderful comprehension 
and versatility, and while he may have sometimes erred in the 
selection of the predominating facts or principles, yet they 
never escaped his penetrating observation, and were certain 
of being suggested, however incoherently he may have chosen 
or seemed to present them. 

His brain was exceedingly active — in perpetual motion, 
as it were. Indolence was impossible with him, and his in- 
dustry was remarkable. Unless physically indisposed, he was 
among the first at his office and among the last to leave it. 
His mental vigor was unflagging, and notwithstanding that 
we claim with pride that the legal profession offers the widest 
scope for the exercise of intellectual endowments, yet it seemed 
too narrow for the qualities he possessed; tending as they did 
to the executive and administrative field and affecting the 
many rather than the few. He was born to command and could 
not be a follower ; hence he would have made a great railroad 
manager, or the executive head of some powerful "Trust." 

While he was the soul of affability no one could be 
familiar with him, nor would he attempt to be so with others. 
As an illustration I need only remark that during the entire 
period of my intimate association with him — beginning, as I 
have intimated, from my boyhood almost — he never addressed 
me other than by my surname. 



ROBERT OF SALEM. I 35 

He was also exceptionally clean in his speech. If he occa- 
casionally used an oath — the result of his military service — he 
never permitted a vulgar or obscene word to fall from his lips. 
In personal habits and tastes he was exceedingly plain and 
simple, caring nothing for the glitter and pomp of social life, 
or its exactions ; unostentatious in all respects save one, viz, 
his books, in which he took the greatest pride and pleasure, 
resulting in his accumulating one of the largest private libraries 
in the state. 

It may be readily inferred, that he was no respector of 
persons, independently of their own merits. Office had no 
attraction for him, nor the piece of clay that happened to oc- 
cupy it, except so far as it was animated by one deserving, for 
his own sake, individual recognition. He would as soon be 
seen on the street with the humblest citizen as with the Presi- 
dent of the United States, and an appeal for assistance or 
charity would as soon be heeded, solicited in rags as in broad- 
cloth. Indeed, he was generous to a fault, and as far as his 
personal wants were concerned he seemed utterly indifferent 
to the fact as to whether he had ten cents or a thousand dol- 
lars on his person. In his family relations, however, he was the 
embodiment of love; affectionate and tender as a child, and 
solicitious only, and at all times, for the happiness and welfare 
of the home circle. It was this that prompted him to leave Cin- 
cinnati temporarily. Owing to his intimate knowledge of Fed- 
eral laws, particularly those relating to Internal Revenue, his 
services were in such requisition that he was compelled to 
spend a large portion of his time in Washington city, especi- 
ally when Congress was in session. This led him, for the sake 
of convenience — and also partly on account of the temporary 
requirements of a valued client, and partly with a view of see- 
ing his only son established in his profession — to open a branch 
office of his firm in the city of New York, hoping and expect- 
ing that he would soon be allowed to return here and end his 
days with his older friends and associates. But, to their great 
sorrow and disappointment, it has been decreed otherwise; 
and nothing now is left to them but the rich legacy of his 



I36 MOULTON ANNALS. 

memory, which has been cast upon them so suddenly, unex- 
pectedly and prematurely that they realize, in all its sadness, 
the truth of the lines: 

"All that's bright must fade, 
The brightest still the fleetest ; 
All that's sweet was made 

But to be lost when sweetest." 
Col. Moulton was a descendant of Robert, in the tenth 
generation.

DAN ALONZO MOULTON. 

Dan Alonzo Moulton was born in Randolph, Vermont, 
January 9, 1806. In 1828 he emigrated to Richfield, Ohio, 
where he married Adaline Wallace, November 9, 1829, his 
uncle, Rev. James Miles performing the ceremony. Mr. Moulton 
was a carpenter and bridge contractor, and built many of these 
structures at an early date in his state. 

A staunch Whig in politics, he took an active part in the 
political campaigns of his party. He was a great admirer of 
Clay and Webster, and later as an abolitionist he voted for Abra- 
ham Lincoln and against the Fugitive Slave Law. 

He was of the best informed men of his day, possessing 

a memory for dates and events that was truly remarkable. 

He lived to see his six children honorably settled in life, 
some of whom are connected by marriage with families of 
national note.. One of his sisters, Caroline, married Russell 
A. Alger, father of General Russell A. Alger, present Secretary 
of War (1898). His son Charles married Frances, youngest 
sister of General W. T. and Senator John Sherman. His 
daughter Sara, married Hoyt Sherman, brother of the above. 

He served a year in the Quartermaster's Department in 



ROBERT OF SALEM. 137 

West Virginia, with his son Colonel C. W.. Moulton, during 
the Cicil War. He died May 11, 1875, in Des Moines, Iowa. 

Mr. Moulton was a descendant of Robert, of the eighth 
generation.

JOHN H. MOULTOX. 

John Henry Moulton, the second son of Dan. A. and Ada- 
line Moulton, was born January 23, 1843, in Brunswick, Me- 
dina County, Ohio. Like other children brought up on a farm, 
he attended the district school two or three miles away. 

When twelve years of age he left home for Mansfield, 
Ohio, where he clerked in the dry-goods store of Sturgis and 
Wood. 

He began at the bottom and worked his way up, becoming 
the confidential clerk of his employers, until the Civil War, 
when he joined his brother, Colonel C. W. Moulton in Beverly, 
West Virginia, where he was put in charge of the overland 
transportation of supplies. 

A year later he was stationed at Gallipolis, Ohio, in the 
same department, and subsequently in Cincinnati. Ohio. 

For some eight months during the war he was managing 
editor of the Ohio State Journal at Columbus, Ohio. 

In the fall of 1865 he went to Ironton, Ohio, and became 
connected with the Sheridan Mining Company, as Secretary 
and Treasurer, in which business he remained nine years. 

In 1874 he became a member of the firm H. Campbell & 
Sons, and has since taken an active part in the business. He 
was one of the organizers of the Crescent Iron Works of 
Pomeroy, Ohio. 

He became president of the Tyler Hoe and Tool Works of 
Ironton, and also a director in the First National Bank of that 
city. He was also a member of the firm of Moulton and Wigh, 
who were engaged in the Aldine Fruit Process, which in the 
proper season employed many hands. 



I38 MOULTON ANNALS. 

Mr. Moulton owned large interests in Chicago, Pueblo, 
Montana, and Boise City, Idaho. 

August 12, 1869 he married Maria E., daughter of Hiram 
Campbell of Ironton, Ohio. Their living children are: Wal- 
lace, John Henry, Carl Woodrow, Elizabeth Adaline, Frederic, 
and Dan Alonzo. 

Mr. Moulton was a fine type of a self-made man, having 
obtained for himself an education, a fortune and a good name. 
He possesses strength of character, to help him through dif- 
ficulties, and also a keen sense of the ludicrous that has lighted 
many a dark moment of his life. He is both generous and just, 
possessing those qualities which accompany native gentility. 

As a business man and citizen he occupies a high and in- 
fluential position. He is greatly beloved for his kind and sym- 
pathetic nature, as well as for his integrity, for every one 
knows that his word is as good as his bond. 

Mr. Moulton is a descendant of Robert, of the ninth gen- 
eration.

BINA MOULTON WYMAN. 

Bina (Sabina) Moulton, the third daughter of Dan. A. 
and Adaline Moulton, was born April 12, 18-41, in Brunswick, 
Ohio. 

She was educated at Wellington High School and Oberlin 
College, In 1859 she went to Des Moines, Iowa, where she 
taught in the High school. 

In 1861 she married Captain Sam. H. Lunt. When the 
Civil War was declared he enlisted in Co. D, 2d Iowa Infantry; 
he was made Lieutenant and later received the commission 3S 
Quartermaster in the field with the rank of Captain. He served 
until the close of the war, when he died suddenly in Mobile, Ala- 
bama, July 28, 1865. 

Bina, with her baby, Sara, made an unsuccessful attempt 



ROBERT OF SALEM. I 39 

to join her husband in Knoxville, Tennessee, but was per- 
suaded by General Sherman, with whom she had a personal 
interview, to give it up. 

Sara, their only child, married Walter M. McCain of Des 
Moines in 1882, where they still reside, with their three chil- 
dren. Philip Lunt, George and Gladys Moulton. 

Mrs. McCain is a woman of great personal beauty and is 
much admired by her friends. She is also a devoted wife and 
mother. 

In 1879, Bina Lunt, visited Europe, spending several months 
in London and Paris, and from there came many of the pub- 
lished sketches and poems that have fallen from her pen. In 
1886, Bina married John Wyman, a well-known and highly 
respected business man of Des Moines. 

Mrs. Wyman, possessing a cultivated and executive mind, 
organized the first literary club in Des Moines, and introduced 
literary receptions. She has always been interested in philan- 
thropic work, and established a Labor Bureau for the poor. 
She was President of the Business Women's Association for 
two years. 

In 1893 she organized the Emergency Club that went to 
Pomeroy, Iowa, after the cyclone, in a special train, and 
nursed the wounded and made garments for the destitute. 

Bina Moulton Wyman, a woman of fine presence and 
strong magnetic temperament, has not betrayed her ances- 
try. For her to think a thing should be done is the earnest of 
its doing. Her religion is helpfulness. None go to her dis- 
couraged and despairing but come away with fresh hope. What 
can I add? I have made a bouquet of her own flowers, only 
the thread that binds them is my own. 

Mrs. Wyman is a descendant of Robert of the ninth gen- 
eration.

MRS. SARAH MOULTON WOOL. 

In Oakwood Cemetery, Troy, N. Y. there is a monument 
on which is inscribed : 

This stone is erected to 

Major John Ellis Wool, 

the gallant soldier, 

the able commander, 

and patriotic citizen ; 

distinguished in many battles; 

and to Sarah Moulton, 

his excellent and worthy consort. 
This fitting inscription was written by William C. Bryant. 
General Wool was born at Newburg, Orange County, New 
York, February 29, 1784. Sarah Moulton was born at Staf- 
ford, Tolland County, Connecticut, July 4, 1787. They were 



ROBERT OF SALEM. I4I 

married in Troy, X. Y., September 27, 1810. They had no chil- 
dren. General Wool died in Troy, N. Y., November 10, 1869. 
Mrs. Wool died in Troy, N. Y., May 7, 1873. 

Mrs. Wool's father was Howard Moulton, son of Colonel 
Stephen Moulton, whose father was a clergyman of financial 
if not of professional ability, as he built a church in Stafford, 
Conn., and preached in it without pay. 

Colonel Stephen Moulton's home was near Stafford 
Springs, a fashionable watering place before the revolution. 
He was a man of liberal education and high social position. 
Among those who visited the "Spa" in pursuit of health or 
recreation was General Hallowel, an English Army officer, 
who enjoyed the hospitality of Colonel Moulton. Colonel 
Moulton commanded a Connecticut regiment, and when the 
war broke out, he led it, with his three sons in the ranks, into 
active service. They were in the battle of Long Island, and 
after the defeat of our forces, Colonel Moulton and two of his 
sons were taken prisoners and paroled. Howard Moulton 
concealed himself in some bushes, and for three days had noth- 
ing to eat but berries, and no drink but a little water which 
he caught in his hat during a shower. He was then captured 
by some Hessian soldiers, one of whom struck him across the 
forehead with a sabre; he carried the mark of this blow to the 
grave. The Hessians were about to hang him, when an 
English officer happened to come to his rescue and sent him to 
the Jersey Prison Ship, where death came to the relief of many 
a brave fellow. 

Howard's father tried in vain to find him and was almost 
in despair, when he chanced to meet, in New York, his guest 
and friend, General Hallowel, who immediately interested 
himself in the pursuit. The hatches of the Jersey Prison Ship 
were raised to the question, "Is there a man here named How- 
ard Moulton ?" There was no response. The question was re- 
peated again and again. At last the wretched semblance of a 
man appeared. At sight of the miserable creature, General 
Hallowel wept like a child. The poor prisoner was wrapped in 
a blanket and carried away to be washed, clothed and placed in 



142 M0ULT0X AXXALS. 

the "Sugar House," where he remained in comparative com- 
fort till paroled. Being a paroled prisoner, the young man could 
do no better than to fall in love, captivate and capture Mary 
White. They were married in 1T79. When Mary White was 
an infant her mother died ; when she was twelve years old her 
father took her to a "pest-house," an institution of that day, 
when vaccination was unknown, and she was there inoculated 
for small pox, her father remaining to watch over her. On 
the termination of their quarantine, he went into a large stream 
to bathe, and being an expert swimmer, the men watching his 
movements from the shore were not alarmed when he went 
beneath the surface of the water. He never rose again. It 
was supposed that cramps seized him. Thus was his only 
child left an orphan, rich in personal charms as well as in 
"broad acres." The wife of the parish minister took care of 
her, and performed the duties of a mother with rare discretion 
and heartfelt devotion. Every possible advantage of education 
was afforded her, and when old enough to make the journey, 
on horseback, that being the sole method of travel, she was in- 
dulged in annual pilgrimages to Boston, even then "the Hub 
of the universe." To grandchildren her accounts of these 
journeys far exceeded the Arabian Nights entertainment. 
There was something real in a dark green cloth riding habit, a 
hat with ostrich feathers and gold mounted whip ! 

She always carried home a new dress, made by the reign- 
ing queen of the craft. The silks of that day were made to 
stand alone, and to descend from generation to generation, as 
hers did. She must have been beautiful ; as an old woman she 
was lovely. A perfect gentlewoman in mind and character. 
She had five handsome daughters. When she died, at the age 
of seventy-three, her pastor, Dr. Butler, of St. Paul's Church, 
Troy, said she was the soundest person of her age in mind and 
body that he had ever known. Her daughter, Sarah, Mrs. 
Wool, was a very elegant woman. Intelligent and affable, 
dignified yet courteous, she commanded the respect and esteem 
of the highest in the land, making friends everywhere, and 
never an enemy. 



ROBERT OF SALEM. I43 

At the close of the war 1812-15, her husband was ap- 
pointed one of two Inspectors General of the United States 
Army, with the rank of Colonel. His duties involved much 
travel, and, wherever practicable, Mrs. Wool accompanied 
him. She often contrasted the journeys of those days and 
these days. Think of consuming twenty-five days in going 
from Buffalo to Detroit and back ! Then there was but one 
house in Buffalo; the British had burned all the rest. Mrs. 
Wool spent most of her winters in Washington, where she 
was a favorite with all who knew her. Ladies as well as gen- 
tlemen esteemed and admired her. Few have ranked among 
their friends so many distinguished people. She was wonder- 
fully discreet. Some one said, when there was a schism among 
ladies of high positions, "How does Mrs. Wool keep out of 
these quarrels?" "By • her discretion" said Senator Silas 
Wright, "her rare discretion." — From a letter to the author. 

Mrs. Wool was a descendant of Robert 8 (Howard 1 , 
Stephen', Ebenezer 5 , Robert 4 , Robert*, Robert 1 , Robert 1 ). 



A MOULTON JOSEPHINE. 

The Countess von Hatzfeld is a descendant of Robert. 

(Charles F. 8 , Josiah 7 , Stephen', Ebenezer 5 , Robert*, 
Robert', Robert', Robert 1 .) 

The following was taken from the Boston Transcript : 

In the year 1886 a dispatch from Berlin announced that 
the brutal and heartless "Count Von Hatzfeld," with the cus- 
tomary meanness of the so-called "German nobility," had suc- 
ceeded in his attempt to get divorced from his beautiful Ameri- 
can wife, formerly Miss Moulton, in order that he might re- 
ceive the appointment of Secretary of State for Foreign Af- 
fairs, it being held that he was disqualified to appear — with a 
wife whose grandmother once sang in public — at a court in the 
veins of whose chief dignitaries, ran the blood of thieves, as- 
sassins and debauchers. In the language of the scribe of the 
period: 



144 MOULTON ANNALS. 

The Countess Von Hatzfeld was born in New York about 
the year 1852. Her mother, whose maiden name was Ceasarina 
Metz, was the daughter of Julius Metz, a former music 
teacher of that day. Mrs. Metz had been an actress before her 
marriage, and the daughter was a distinguished beauty, and 
being very accomplished was a great belle in New York so- 
ciety. Miss Metz married a Mr. Moulton of Albany who soon 
after coming to New York made investments in real estate 
which were highly successful. The result of the union was a 
boy and a girl. The boy's name was Charles Moulton. The 
girl was the lady whose marriage with Count Von Hatzfeld has 
just been dissolved. About ten years after the birth of the 
children the Moultons went to Paris, where they made their 
home henceforth, and the father materially increased his 
wealth by an association with the famous Baron Haussmann. 

About 1868 Charles Moulton married Miss Lillie Green- 
ough of Boston. This lady was famous for her wonderful 
soprano voice, which has delighted a great many audiences. 

About six years ago Charles Moulton died, and soon after- 
ward, his widow came to this country, where she made the 
acquaintance of Baron Von Hageman, the Danish Minister, 
whom she married several years ago. Miss Moulton, mean- 
while having been carefully educated, grew up to be a charm- 
ing, graceful and accomplished young lady. When about 
seventeen she attracted the notice of the Empress Eugenie by 
her graceful skating on the lake in the Bois de Boulogne. She 
thereafter was prominent in the society of the Imperial Court 
where she made many friends. At this time she became ac 
quainted with Count Von Hatzfeld, who was then the German 
Ambassador at Paris. From the first there was a strong 
mutual attachment between the young people, which, in 1860, 
culminated in a marriage, which was particularly gratifying 
to the lady's family, and in Parisian society, was considered 
a brilliant match. A German gentleman, now residing in New 
York, who has held official positions, both in the army and the 
civil service of Prussia, and who claims to be familiar with 
the rules and usages governing official life in Berlin, speaking 



ROBERT OF SALEM. 145 

of the divorce, said: "There is no written law on the subject, 
and acceptability at court depends altogether on customs and 
usage. The present usage owes its existence to the Empress 
Augusta, who, inheriting the severely strict ideas character- 
istic of the House of Hohenzollern, is extremely particular in 
her ideas of propriety. Nobility, however, is not among the 
requisites for reception into the court circle, and the peasant is 
on a par with the prince in that respect. There are two causes 
which are fatal to a woman's favor at court ; one is, connection 
with the stage either directly or through being related to any 
one who has performed in public; the other consists in having 
been divorced or related to any (me who has been divorced." 

This gentleman, upon being informed of the incidents of 
the countess's life and antecedents, said that even though there 
were no other reasons, the facts that her grandmother had 
been an actress and her si>ter-in-law a concert singer, were 
enough to have prevented the count from being received in of- 
ficial circles. 



MRS. CHARLES MOULTON [No. 401]. 

The marriage of Miss Moulton to Baron von Raben recalls 
some interesting facts in relation to her mother. Mrs. Charles 
Moulton has had a remarkable experience. She is one of the 
handsomest and brainiest women that ever went from our 
shores to dwell on the other side. She has had many singular 
experiences. Her husband died some years ago, leaving her 
with the daughter who has just married, and with little or no 
money to live on. 

The brave woman, who had been very popular in social 
circles, took to the concert stage as a means of livelihood. A 
great many people can recall her when she returned to this 
country and sung in concerts in all the principal cities. Her 
coming caused quite a sensation in the fashionable world, for 
the stage in those days was much less popular than it is now ; 
yet Mrs. Moulton kept her high social position intact, while 
she earned a good round sum every week, appearing before the 



I46 MOULTON ANNALS. 

footlights each night. In almost every large city she was made 
much of by wealthy people, and for a time there was a general 
belief that she would adopt the stage as a profession. She was 
even set down to sing in opera, and there was a great deal of 
speculation as to her future, when she met and married a 
Dane, M. de Hegermann, who now represents this country at 
Rome. 

During Mrs. Moulton's early conflict with the world and 
adventures on the stage, the young and beautiful girl just 
married was a child. 

She found in her mother's new husband a good father, 
and she has doubtless found a good husband in her stepfather's 
friend and countryman. This young girl, like her mother, 
possesses talents of a high order, and has been much petted 
and flattered without destroying her good sense. She has seen 
a great deal of life, and is well equipped for the duties of her 
new station. She is one of the few American girls who have 
married foreign husbands on an equal basis. She did not pay 
for the privilege of being a baroness. The baron paid a hand- 
some fortune for the love and affection of a good American 
girl.

Note: The Bible containing the foregoing record was sent to Josiah 
Moulton, on a leaf of the book the following being written: "Oh my son, 
receive this ye; present from your earthly father and may it be a guide 
to your Heavenly Father's Home. Written by your father, Nathaniel 
Moulton in his eighty-fourth year, without glasses. 

Why should I fear Death's grim look? 

Jesus Christ for me did die. 

Kings and Tyrants rich and poor 

The force of Death must try, for death is but sleep to the body 
whilst in the grave, and the grave a bed for the body until 
Christ shall come to judgment. 

May it be our happy lot to meet those we love, with the King 
of Glory. 

May God, for Christ's sake, forgive our sins, and in the covenant 
adopt us among the chosen." 

Rev. Josiah Moulton added the following: 

Nathaniel Moulton died 21st February, 1823, at Conway, Massachusetts, 
aged eighty-six years wanting thirteen days. He was the father of the 
children before named. 

Nathaniel Moulton, born in 1737, was a man of fine address, about 
five feet ten inches in height, well developed and active. Born in Ipswich, 
near Boston, Massachusetts, when a colony, he served with honor in the 
war between Franco and England. Enlisting about 1754, was captured and 
imprisoned at Quebec by the French, with many others, who were so 
starved that they ate the raw flesh of rats and dogs. The prison was 
packed almost to suffocation, and many died from it. After some weeks 
of imprisonment, a French officer opened the door, and ordered fifty pris- 
oners to prepare for shipment to England for exchange. A Newfoundland 
dog crowding into the prison, was choked down until the officer retired, 
when it was torn into as many pieces as there were prisoners; a piece 
of the tail, about two inches long, fell to Moulton's lot, which he was de- 
vouring, hair, meat and bones, when the fifty prisoners were ordered out. 
He was near the door, and dropping his sweet morsel, sprang out; the 
fifty were marched on ship-board, and fastened below the hatch-way, as 
they outnumbered the crew. They soon learned they were heading for 
France, where they would, without doubt, be imprisoned, and resolved 



I56 MOULTON ANNALS. 

to take the ship if possible, and steer for England. The fight was a hard 
one, as they had only marlin spikes, and such things as could be found 
below deck. When the hatch was removed, for letting down food and 
water, they pulled down the cook, gained the deck, and captured the crew 
after a desperate fight, none being armed except the captain and mate. 
All were driven below deck except one, whom they forced to navigate the 
vessel, and run her to England, and there it was given up to the govern- 
ment; the navigator was released and his expenses paid to France. They 
were much honored, and awarded prize money, which far exceeded the cost 
of their return to America. His weapon in the deck fight was a light bar 
of iron, which he wielded with both hands, with good effect, much after 
the fashion of the Scots, in the use of the clamore in the time of Wallace. 
Having been furloughed, he remained at home in Ipswich for sometime, 
and when married, moved to Hopkinton, Massachusetts, where most, if not 
all, of his children were born. Subsequently, he moved to Conway, Massa- 
chusetts, where he died. He enlisted in our revolution against England 
in 1775, and served in several campaigns. John, his eldast child, went 
with him, and probably saved the life of his father, when suffering on 
the field of one of the battles in New Jersey ; John carried water to him 
in his hat and secured aid for his removal. He was an accomplished wood 
engraver, but gained his living mostly by work in leather and manufactory 
of boots and shoes, when machinery was not far advanced for such business.

on Long Island and in "the Jerseys." A part of the time he was 
under Washington. He was in an engagement on Long Island 
and at the battle of Brandywine. He afterwards shipped with the 
noted privateer, Capt. Hugh Hill of Beverly, as cabin-boy. At 
the close of the war he continued to go to sea. Once he was 
wrecked on Cape Cod, losing everything but the clothing he 
stood in, and at one time the ship in which he was returning from 
Europe foundered, and the crew, taking to the water, lived four- 
teen days on an allowance of a little water and two dates apiece 
per day. Leaving navigation in the forecastle, he rapidly rose to 
be master mariner, and in that capacity visited the principal com- 
mercial ports of western Europe, the Mediterranean and West 
Indies. In 1798 he was captured in West Indian waters while in 
command of the brig Nancy by a vessel commanded by a French- 
man and bearing the French flag, and was carried into Havana, 
where the brig and cargo were confiscated. Owning a part of 
the cargo, his loss was about $2,000. After the death of his sec- 
ond wife he gave up going to sea and engaged in agricultural 
pursuits. His height was five feet nine inches, figure spare, hair 
sandy, complexion red, eyes large, blue and deep set ; nose large, 
forehead high, gait rolling and long-striding and, though not a 
handsome man, his expression was calm, thoughtful and kindly. 
He excelled in mathematical studies, and from extensive read- 
ing of history and books of travel, as well as from his own wan- 
derings, he had learned much of the world and its inhabitants.

(50) Rev. Josiah Moulton' (Nathaniel 8 , Nathaniel 4 , Will- 
iam 8 , James*, James 1 ) was the eighth child of Nathaniel. He was 
born in Hopkinton, Middlesex County, Mass., December 27, 1773, 
and died Ashford, Catteraugus County, N. Y., August, 1827. 
His wife, Dorcas (Thayer) Moulton, was born April 2, 1778, and 
died Homer, N. Y., April, 1844. She was the sister (older) of 
Gen. Sylvanus Thayer, L T . S. A. Engineer Corps, who built Fort 
Warren and Fort Independence in Boston Harbor, and com- 
manded West Point Military Academy from 1817 to 1833. A 
monument was erected to his memory at West Point in 1833. 
This sister, Dorcas, taught him the alphabet. 

Rev. Josiah Moulton graduated at Dartmouth College, New 
Hampshire, 1802, studied theology, and was installed pastor of 
the Presbyterian Church in Oxford, Worcester County, Mass., 
in 1805 and continued his pastorate until 1813. He then took 
charge of a church in Hamilton Centre, Madison County, N. Y., 
until 1819, when he was relieved on account of bronchial trouble,

which prevented his preaching in large audience rooms. Subse- 
quently he went to Broome County, New York, and preached in 
a schoolhouse, but soon discontinued for the same cause. He 
afterwards received an urgent call to take charge of a church in 
Wilkesbarre, Wyoming Valley, Pa., and accepted; but in a year 
and a half abandoned preaching and moved to Whitestown, near 
Utica, N. Y., acting in missionary work at different places until 
1825, whes he bought wild land in Ashford, Cataraugus County, 
N. Y., thirty-five miles south of Buffalo, N. Y., from the Holland 
Purchase Company, which was sold at one dollar and a half per 
acre to clergymen and double that price to others. He informed 
the company of the condition of his health, and offered to pay 
three dollars per acre, but they claimed that the rule of the office 
would be adhered to, and made out the papers at the lower price. 
As no mill-sawed lumber could be had, a log house was built, 
and land around it cleared and cultivated. This was in 1826. He 
died in his log house August 1, 1827, of bilious fever, in the 
twenty-second year of his ministry, and was buried at Spring- 
ville, Erie County, N. Y. His funeral was in a schoolhouse, the 
only place of worship, filled with those to whom he had preached 
sfiort sermons. Services over, two lines were formed at the 
door, outward, and the remains and family passed between them, 
who then followed, singing as they walked to the grave. On 
leaving it, the same ceremony was performed, until the mourners 
reached their two-horse wagon. Carriages had not then been 
brought into that country.

SEVENTH GENERATION. 

(55) William Springer 7 (Captain John*, Jonathan 6 , John 4 , 
John', James 1 , James 1 ) was five feet ten inches in height, spare, 
with black, deep-set, piercing eyes. He was quick in motion and 
thought and in his younger days possessed a sound constitution 
and a resolute will. He was able to accomplish a great deal of 
labor in a short space of time, and being an extensive reader and 
close observer, he was well informed upon almost every subject 
that came to his notice. He was a dyer by trade, which he 
learned at the Lynn dye-house, but in 1823, he resigned his 
position there of foreman, and went into business for himself 
at Westbrook. Maine. In 1829, his dye-house having been swept 
away by a freshet, he resumed his former position in Lynn. 
During the political campaign of 1832, he was requested by the 



164

directors of the company to use all his influence to induce the 
men in his employ to vote for the candidate for Representative 
to Congress that favored the tariff of 1828. William replied that 
he was not in favor of that measure himself and that he should 
not interfere with the political preferences of the men. This 
hint came back, "If you are not willing to work for the com- 
pany's interests, you should not expect to receive their money." 
He voted for the opposing candidate and was discharged. He 
afterwards was in business in Hingham and worked in Boston, but 
his last years were spent on his farm in Wenham. He m. Mary

New York, February 25, 1884, visiting Liverpool and London, 
and in April entering upon her work. After a year and a half of 
successful labor she was suddenly stricken down with illness 
and after suffering ten weeks, she ended her life upon earth and 
was buried among strangers. Her letters to American periodi- 
cals were received with much favor, and she had begun to write 
a book on South Africa, some sheets of which have been sent 
home. The style is racy and the matter both interesting and in- 
structive. She spent her vacation among the Boers, back in 
"the bush" with a view to learning their language, customs, etc., 
and it was on her return to Stellinbork that she took cold by 
sleeping in a damp room. 



JOHN FRANCIS MOULTON. 

John Francis Moulton was born in Bevelry, Massachusetts, 
February 3, 1841. During his boyhood he attended the public 
schools of Beverly and at an early age engaged in business with 
his father in mercantile pursuits. He was married when about 
nineteen years of age to Miss Lucy Ober Giles, who was one year 
younger and who was also born and reared in Beverly. 

When about twenty-one years old he went to Michigan on oc- 
casional business trips and about 1865 he moved with his family 
to Battle Creek, Michigan, and engaged in the live stock and meat 
business. He was quite successful in this venture and remained 
in Battle Creek until 1872. During this period (from 1865 to 
1872) he became prominent as a citizen of Battle Creek, was 
elected an alderman, and was one of the leaders in numerous 
business enterprises. He was the chief organizer of the Battle 
Creek Gas Company and was its first president, also was one of 
the organizers and a director of the City Bank of Battle Creek. 

In 1872 he, with Mr. George H. Russell, also a citizen of 
Battle Creek, secured the contract for building a railroad from 
Buffalo to Jamestown, sixty-nine miles, in the state of New York. 
The work of building the railroad was prosecuted by Messrs. 
Russell & Moulton until 1874 when Mr. Russell died, the road 



I76 MOULTON ANNALS. 

then being about half finished, and Mr. Moulton continued the 
work and completed the road in 1875. He was shortly afterwards 
made its general manager and in 1878 when the road was re- 
organized as the Buffalo and South Western Railroad Company, 
he was continued as General Manager and 1879 he was elected 
President of the company, which position he held until the time 
of his death. 

In 1880 the railroad was leased to the New York, Lake Erie 
and Western Railroad Company and being relieved of the re- 
sponsibility of its management Mr. Moulton soon after engaged 
in the electric light business in the City of Buffalo, X. Y., which 
city has been his home since 1875, when he completed the rail- 
road. He was the leader and principal organizer of the electric 
light business in Buffalo and the success of this enterprise as 
well as that of the railroad and other Venturis with which he was 
connected stand as monuments to his business ability and sagacity. 
Mr. Moulton was married as before stated in [859 and the children 
of this union were Frank Tilton Moulton, born in Beverly, March 
21, i860, Xellie Abbie Moulton. born in Beverly, March J4, 
1862, and Lucy Frances Moulton, born in Battle Creek, Michigan, 
October 27, 1865. Of these the two daughters are married, the 
elder to Mr. Fred B. Walker and the younger to Mr. Sheldon 
Thompson, both young business men of Buffalo, X. Y. 

Mr. Moulton died April 26, 1887, at the age of forty-six years. 
His death was mourned by his entire family who survived him 
and by a large number of friends and relatives. 

Mr. Moulton was a descendant of James, of the eighth genera- 
tion (Charles ', John", Jonathan 8 , John*, John', James 1 , James 1 .) 



FRANCIS TILTON MOULTON. 

Frank Tilton Moulton was born in Beverly, Massachusetts, 
March 21, i860. Removed at the age of four years with his pa- 
rents to Battle Creek, Michigan, and attended the public schools at 
the latter place until 1874 when he removed with his mother and

sisters to a temporary abode in Beverly, Massachusetts, and there 
attended school one year. At this time the family moved into a 
new home and he completed his schooling with one year's at- 
tendance at the public schools of Buffalo. In 1876 he entered the 
railroad offices of the Buffalo and South Western Railroad Com- 
pany, of which his father was the general manager and has con- 
tinued in the employ of this company ever since in various capaci- 
ties, and is today the secretary and treasurer of the company. He 
has also been associated with his father in other business pur- 
suits, among which are the lumber business carried on in Buffalo 
by Adams, Moulton & Company from 1882 to 1885 and since 
January, 1886, has been the secretary of the Buffalo Wood Vul- 
canizing Company, of which company his father was president 
until the time of his decease. 

Mr. Moulton is a descendant of James (John Francis', 
Charles 7 , John', Jonathan 5 , John 4 , John', James 2 , James 1 .) 



LEVI FOSS MOULTON. 

The generation of the early days of Colusa County, which, by 
its perseverance, vigor and tireless energy has done so much 
to advance this county to the front among California's banner 
counties of development, is rapidly passing away. From among 
those who still survive, there are few more noteworthy or who 
have filled a larger space in public esteem than Levi Foss Moulton. 
His life has been peculiarly typical of the early home-builders of 
this state, and that, too, in its period of industrial and social tran- 
sition, when self-reliance developed so remarkably that originality 
and ready resource, which is now so distinctly carved in the 
great monument of our statehood. 

Mr. Moulton was born in Leeds, Kennebec County, Maine, 
February 6, 1829. His father having been a tiller of the soil, the 
son was brought up in the same vocation. At fifteen years of age, 
the subject of this sketch went to New Bedford, Massachusetts, 
where he found employment in his uncle's store for a twelve-

month. Determined to acquire a trade, he now entered a car- 
riage-shop as apprentice, and before the time had expired for 
which he was indentured, he purchased his time from his em- 
ployer and began business for himself in the same line. With 
a trade acquired and in business for himself before yet reaching 
his majority, with his ambition now full-fledged and on wing, 
Mr. Moulton did not confine himself to mere money-making 
alone. The education he had received on the farm was scant 
enough, and feeling this, he set himself to remedy it under that 
best of tutors, self-help. For this purpose, while engaged in his 
uncle's store or the carriage-shop, though a mere boy, he found 
time to conduct a course of reading, studying diligently before 
the day's work began, and utilizing with miserly economy every 
spare moment he could snatch at the noon hour or at night. The 
result is that to this course of self-imposed mental discipline he 
owes his present proficiency in the principles of hygiene, an- 
cient and modern history, and political economy, besides being 
thoroughly versed in agricultural and horticultural matters and 
completely equipped as a civil engineer. 

His studious turn of mind led him away from the pardonable 
frivolities of youth. He encouraged the young associates around 
him to seek knowledge, likewise, and his efforts in this direction 
resulted in the organization of a debating club in New Bedford. 
The formation of a small library followed. It grew apace and was 
then presented to the city, thus forming a nucleus of what is now 
one of the largest free libraries in the east. Surely the chore- 
boy of the country store, and the carriage-maker's apprentice 
builded better than he knew. 

It was in the winter of 185 1 that young Moulton, now in his 
twenty-second year, sought a broader and newer field for his 
enterprise and for this purpose, in company with nine com- 
panions, of whom he had been chosen leader, he set out for 
California via Nicaragua. He arrived in San Francisco on March 
22, following, and at once set out for the mines with Colonel 
Dibble and Senator George Hearst. His capital on arriving in 
this new El Dorado was $1,500, and this was almost entirely 
expended in "prospects," which, proving to be far from remun-

erative, he concluded that as a gold-hunter, Fortune "had not 
marked him for her own," and so, with a willingness to be occu- 
pied with anything honorable, he turned himself undismayed to 
other employments, the chief of which was carpentering, at which 
he worked for several months on the Yuba River. 

In the winter of 1852-53 Mr. Moulton determined to devote 
himself to some more permanent vocation, and for this purpose 
he came to Colusa County, and having purchased land near his 
present abode, nine miles north of Colusa, he settled down to 
farming. The wisdom of this resolution he has certainly had no 
reason to regret, since his industry and intelligence therein have 
so combined to prosper him that, making new purchases of land 
as fast as his means would permit him, he is now the owner of 
eighteen thousand acres, unequaled for productiveness. 

On this vast estate, an American principality in itself, Mr. 
Moulton has erected a stately home of peculiar architecture, an 
illustration of which will be found elsewhere. The Moulton home- 
stead is a model one, in its fields of grain, in its extensive vine- 
yards and orchards, where, side by side, in many instances, de- 
ciduous fruits grow and ripen in wondrous abundance with semi- 
tropical productions. 

But the care and supervision of so large a ranch have not 
absorbed all of its proprietor's time. He has found or made leis- 
ure to render him one of the most active men in the State on 
matters of public policy. His counsel has been heeded from 
the rostrum and through the press. A man of well-stored, prac- 
tical mind, using vigorous English in reflecting it, keenly obser- 
vant and intrepid in his independence of party dictation, he could 
not well be silent on great local or economic questions. 

In politics Col. Moulton (as he is termed by his friends) can 
be classed as an independent Republican, though his connection 
with the early Republican party is now historic, since he, in 
connection with Hon. John Kasson, a former Congressman from 
Iowa, and minister to Austria, first organized the Free Soil party, 
which was to all intents and purposes the Republican organization 
in its formative period, though under another name. 

On October 11, 1S82, the Republican joint convention of Co- 



l80 MOULTON ANNALS. 

lusa and Tehama Counties placed Colonel Moulton on its ticket 
for State senator. This honor was unsought by him, he being 
away at the time attending a meeting of the farmers at Stockton 
and of the anti-monopolists at San Francisco, endeavoring to 
make these parties understand the overshadowing importance of 
preserving their homes and lands from destruction by hydraulic 
mining debris. No time being left him to stump his district, he 
issued a circular letter to the voters thereof, which fairly bristled 
with Mr. Moulton's individuality. He showed how he had pre- 
viously served his county in an unofficial capacity; how in 1862 
Colusa County was deeply in debt and her script selling for thirty- 
five cents on the dollar, when he, with others, matured a funding 
bill and worked it through the Legislature against great oppo- 
sition, the result being that the county was soon out of debt, her 
rate of taxation as low as any other county, while her script has 
been at par ever since. Colonel Moulton closes this letter to the 
voters in the following, straight-from-the-shoulder remarks, 
which are characteristic of the man : "The Legislature is the 
place where this fight against hydraulic mining devastation has 
to be made. I will be in that fight whether elected to the senate 
or not, but if the voters of the district shall honor me with a seat 
in the senate, I shall not be far behind the foremost in the con- 
test. I shall work hard for the future prosperity and glory of 
the State, for, old-line Republican as I am, and accepting as 
I do the party nomination, I place the prosperity of my district far 
above party consideration and shall not work in leading strings 
when its interests are in question. Colonel Moulton was defeated, 
though running ahead of his ticket by a very flattering vote. 

Mr. Moulton has never been his party's servile henchman 
He has kicked over the party traces when his conscience sug- 
gested that course. He went off with the so-called Dolly Varden 
party, whose brief but earnest career gave evidences of a promis- 
ing vitality in the election of Newton Booth as Governor of the 
State. The activity with which he has thrown himself into pub- 
lic affairs is quite remarkable. In the anti-debris controversy no 
man in the State was more pronounced or more indefatigable 
in his hostility to the encroachment of slickers. He spent freely 



JAMES OF WENHAM. l8l 

of his time and money and was at all times the unselfish cham- 
pion of the agricultural interests, and he will be borne in happy 
memory in time to come for his services therein, even as his 
efforts are now deeply appreciated by his contemporaries. As an 
instance of the earnestness with which he takes hold of matters 
in hand, he, at his own expense, sent thousands of illustrated 
documents and printed data through the mails, setting forth the 
manner in which the agricultural interests of Northern California 
were menaced by hydraulic mining, even going so far at one time 
as to furnish a large folio paper replete with engravings and fer- 
vent in argument and presentation of facts as a supplement to 
sixty-seven journals in the State. 

At the Legislature he has been well recognized, and he was 
always sure to be present at some period of its proceedings as 
an irrepressible worker for county and State. To his credit be 
it said he had no logs of his own to roll, no private axe to grind 
and no selfish motive to advance in using his private means and 
time, which could be spent in elegant leisure at his home, in thus 
counseling with the representatives of the people. He opposed 
with an iron will and with some vehemence the passage of the 
Parks brush dam bill for nearly six weeks with next to no back- 
ing from the county, and bad as the bill was considered by many, 
it was shorn of its worst features by Col. Moulton, and out of his 
stubborn resistance thereto came a thorough arousing of the 
people of the State. The final outcome of his opposition was a 
decision by the lower courts and afterwards by the Supreme Court, 
strictly in accordance with the views of the Colonel. 

During all this period of pronounced activity, Mr. Moulton was 
developing the resources of his immense ranch, superintending 
all its operations, introducing new varities of fruit trees, vines 
and shrubs, building bridges, laying out roads, reclaiming over- 
flowed lands or protecting them from overflow. Assuredly, few 
individuals in the serene evening of their days can stir the pulses 
of their memory with so many solacing recollections of a busy 
life, the events of which are nearly all inseparable from the grati- 
fication which their success and affirmed wisdom must necessarily 
impart. 



l82 MOULTON ANNALS. 

As a patriotic American and warm champion of the Monroe 
doctrine, as well as an implacable foe of railroad monopoly, Mr. 
Moulton was most assiduous in presenting the merits of the Eads 
Ship Railway. He looked upon it as a great international neces- 
sity, particularly for the people of this coast, concluding that ~it 
would operate as a political regulator of transcontinental rail 

rates, thereby making it impossible for them to be in a position of 
dictatorial control. For this purpose he wrote and caused to be 

introduced into the State Senate a concurrent resolution urging 
Congress to assist the Eads Ship Railroad project. So persistent 
was he in his support of the measure, that he labored for three 
years to bring to this coast Captain Eads, the greatest engineer 
of his time, who, at the same time, examined the water-ways of 
California. Nor did he stop here; at his own expense he sent 
illustrated documents and data to thousands of people throughout 
the State, explanatory of the ship railway scheme. His purpose 
was to educate the people hereon, and so deeply were they becom- 
ing interested that, in response to an invitation of the Geographi- 
cal Society of the Pacific, Colonel Moulton, March 12, 1886, de- 
livered a lengthy address on the Eads Ship Railway plan before 
that organization, which met with a hearty resolution of indorse- 
ment from the society. 

Mr. Moulton, at his hospitable home, when aloof from the 
excitement engendered by the earnestness of discussion on 
local or economic questions, is peculiarly happy in his domestic 
relations. He married in 1861 and three children are the pride 
of his household. They are : Oralee, a daughter, educated 
at Mills Seminary; Levi Everett, and Herbert. 

Mr. Moulton's descent is from James — (Stillman 7 , Wil- 
liam', Nathaniel 8 , Nathaniel 4 , William', James', James'). .

dom and experience, added to material wealth, he highly 
enjoys life at his advanced age. In the same city live the 
families of his sons and daughters with his beloved grand-children. 

Well deserved honors have been won by them while their 
faces, looking from these pages, will continue to win friends 
in the days to come. 

Jonathan B. Moulton, whose portrait, with that of his wife, 
children and grand-children, herewith appears, was born in 
1810. He has been a civil engineer since 1830. In five years 
he constructed the Chesapeake & Ohio canal along the left 
bank of the Potomac river, from Georgetown, D. C, to Cum- 
berland, Md. ; a work of great magnitude and cost. From 
1836 to 1840 he was engaged on the location and construction 
of the Lexington & Ohio railroad between Frankfort and 
Louisville, Ky., which was the first railroad made west of the 
Alleghany Mountains, and before T rails were introduced. 

He subsequently, as county engineer, located and con- 
structed about one hundred and twenty miles of macadam and 
plank roads in St. Louis county, Mo., and was city engineer of 
St. Louis under the administrations of several mayors. Twice, 
while a resident of Missouri, he held the position of state engi- 
neer to the Board of Public Improvements, whose duty was to 
examine and report to the Legislature the condition of rail- 
roads which had received state aid by endorsement of bonds. 
As chief engineer, he completed the railroad from St. Louis to 
the Iron Mountain, Mo. Located and constructed the west 
branch of the North Missouri Railroad from Moberly to Kan- 
sas City and the main line from Macon City, Mo., to the 
town of Moulton, Iowa, completed the railroad from the town 
of Moulton, Iowa, to Ottumwa, Iowa; built the bridge over 
the Des Moines river at that place, completed a railroad in 
Nebraska on the right bank of the Missouri river between 
Omaha and Platte river; located various railroads in Mis- 
souri, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Louisiana and Kentucky ; was 
general superintendent and chief engineer of the North Mis- 
souri Railroad and branches for several years. 

He was a member of the American Association for the 



184 MOULTON ANNALS. 

Advancement of Science for some years, but withdrew on 
account of age. In the early history of railroads, he often 
acted as arbiter in controversies between corporations and 
contracting firms, without ever having had his opinions or 
decisions disregarded, or ever objected to. 

The town of Moulton, Iowa, now a railroad center, was 
named after him, without his knowing the intention' of the 
people to do so; this they supplemented by a deed of lots 
one hundred feet front in the center of that now populous 
town. In good health, he now lives in St. Louis, retired, at the 
ripe old age of seventy-eight years, being the fifty-eighth 
year of his profession. General Sylvanus Thayer, U. S. A., 
willed to Jonathan Benjamin Moulton, his oldest nephew, a 
sword presented to him in 1853 by the graduates of West Point 
on behalf of the first class under Colonel Thayer, admitted 
as cadets to the United States Military Academy in 1817. 
The scabbard is solid gold, as well as the head of the hilt, 
an excellent representation of the head of John C. Calhoun, 
Secretary of War. The names engraved on the gold scab- 
bard are: "Wallace, Mansfield, Scott, Abercrombe, Wheeler, 
Capron, Morris, Bainbridge, Bliss, Henshaw, Morton, Walker, 
Courtney, Allsford, Baker, Dimmock, Wheelright, Donalson." 
These names surround the following words : "Though some 
have fallen, kind memories live in the breasts of those who 
survive, who offer for all this token of respect." On the 
reverse is engraved the following: "His first class of 1817 — 
Graduates of 1820-21-22, to Col. Sylvanus Thayer, Corps of 
Engineers, U. S. A., Superintendent of the U. S. Military 
Academy, West Point, 1817-1833." Engraved on the scabbard 
is a view of the West Point barracks, view of the Hudson river, 
looking north, cap of liberty and other military devices. Mr. 
Moulton will perpetuate this gift in his family by leaving it 
to his son, named after the General. 

The children of Jonathan Benjamin Moulton, second child 
of Josiah Moulton and his wife, Jane Emma Moulton (born 
Smith), are: 

Julius Moulton, civil engineer, born November 15, 1844;

married Marion Preston Nelson, November 22, 1871. He has 
assisted as engineer in the location of railroads in Missouri 
and Illinois; was engaged in the construction of the North 
Missouri railroad bridge over the Missouri river at St. Charles, 
Mo., and for several years has been in the Engineering Depart- 
ment of St. Louis, on the construction of streets, public sewers, 
and wharf improvements. 

Sylvanus T. Moulton, born 1850; died 1853. 

Sylvanus Thayer Moulton, born in St. Louis, Mo., Febru- 
ary 11, 1854; married America Lee Harding, October 28, 1874. 
Their children are: 

Grace Thayer, born June 1, 1876. 

Nannie Emma, born September 26, 1877. 

Lee Anna, born August 15, 1884. 

S. T. Moulton was engaged on the location of the Iron 
Mountain Railroad, south of the mountain, but ultimately 
turned his attention to the lumber business in St. Louis, until 
appointed to a position in the Internal Revenue Department 
of the Government in Missouri, where he continued eight 
years ; now a broker in wholesale merchandise. 

Mellona Jane Moulton, born August 31, i860; married 
William Cowan Green, M. D., of Wilmington, N. C, March 
13, 1878. Their children are : 

Jennie Moulton Green, born July 22, 1881. 

Julia W T orth Green, born September 10, 1883. 

Mellie Mercer Green, born October 17, 1885. 

All living in St. Louis, Mo. (April, 1888). Dr. Green, her 
husband, has a large practice as a physician in St. Louis, and 
has built an expensive dwelling after the Queen Anne style. 
He belongs to an old North Carolina family. 

As might be expected from such a lineage, the St. Louis 
Moultons are actively engaged in promoting the material, 
moral, political, educational and religious welfare of their 
city and state. 

Mr. Moulton is a descendant of James, of the seventh 
generation — (Josiah 9 , Nathaniel 5 , Nathaniel 4 , William', James', 
James 1 ).

MOULTON OF YORK, THE FAMOUS WARRIOR. 

In the romantic poem, "Mogg Megone," by Whittier, which 
begins as follows : 

"Who stands on that cliff, like a figure of stone, 
Unmoving and tall in the light of the sky, 
Where the spray of the cataract sparkles on high, 
Lonely and sternly, save Mogg Megone?" 

There are allusions to "Captain Moulton," and "Moulton and 
his men," as vide the following extracts from pages eight and 
thirteen of the "Household Edition." 

"Some bough or sapling meets his blow, 
The fisher, as he drops his line, 
Starts, when he sees the hazels quiver 
Along the margin of the river, 
Looks up and down the rippling tide 
And grasps the firelock at his side, 



204 M0ULT0N ANNALS. 

For Bomazeen from Tacconock 

Has sent his runners to Norrigewock, 

With tidings that Moulton and Harmon of York . 

Far up the river have come : 
They have left their boats, — they have entered the wood, 
And filled the depths of the solitude 

With the sound of the ranger's drum. 

"Ha Bomazeen ! — In God's name say, 
What mean these sounds of bloody fray?" 
Silent, the Indian points his hand 

To where across the echoing glen 
Sweep Harmon's dreaded ranger-band, 

And Moulton with his men. 

"Where are thy warriors, Bomazeen ? 
Where are De Rouville and Castine, 
And where the braves of Sawga's queen? 
"Let my father find the winter snow 
Which the sun drank up long moons ago ! 
Under the fall of Tacconock, 
The wolves are eating the Norridgewock ; 
Castine with his wifes lies closely hid 
Like a fox in the woods of Pemaquid ! 
On Sawga's banks the man of war 
Sits in his wigwam like a squaw, — 
Squando has fled, and Mogg Megone, 
Struck by the knife of Sagamore John, 
Lies stiff and stark and cold as a stone." 

In conversation with my old friend Whittier, the poet, one 
day, I asked him for further information regarding "Moulton" 
to whom he had alluded in the said poem. In answer, he referred 
me to "Biography and History of the Indians of North America, 
from its Discovery," by Samuel G. Drake, Boston, 1851, from 
which I here introduce the following extracts : 

Page 292. "Joseph Bane deposed that in 1691 he was with 



THOMAS OF YORK. 205 

Theodore Atkinson, late of New Castle, New Hampshire, said 
Atkinson's wife, of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and many 
others, at the house of Joseph Moulton, of York, in the County 
of York, where they were taken captives by a large number 
of Indians. Madokawando was then commander of the said 
Indians, and was thus reputed "Sachem of Penobscot," etc., 
etc. Bane further relates that he was sold to an Amaroscoggen 
Indian, with whom he lived till 1699, an( 3 that he was present 
when Madokawando ordered Theodore Atkinson who was his 
captive, to write to the Governor of Massachusetts to send a vessel 
to Sungadahok with goods to redeem the captives ; that it was 
accordingly sent there, and Atkinson, his wife, and about forty 
others were redeemed." 

Page 311. "Determined on destroying this assemblage of 
Indians, which was the headquarters of the whole Eastern 
Country at this time, the English, two years after 1724 sent out 
a force consisting of 208 men and three Mohawk Indians, under 
Captain Moulton, Harmon and Bourne, to humble them. They 
came upon the village the 23rd of August, when there was not a 
man in arms to oppose them. They had left forty of their men at 

Falls, which is now the town of Winslow on the 

Kennebunk, and about two miles below Waterville College, upon 
the opposite side of the river. 

"The English had divided themselves into three squadrons ; 
eighty under Harmon proceeded by a circuitous route, thinking 
to surprise some in their cornfields, while Moulton, with eighty 
men, proceeded directly for their village, which being surrounded 
by trees could not be seen till they were close upon it. All were 
in their wigwams, and the English advanced slowly and in perfect 
silence. When pretty near, an Indian came out of his wigwam 
and accidently discovering the English, ran in and seized his gun 
and, giving the war whoop, in a few moments the warriors were 
all in arms and advancing to meet them. Moulton ordered his 
men not to fire till the Indians had made the first discharge. 
This order was obeyed, and, as he expected, they overshot the 
English, who then fired upon them, in their turn and did great

execution. When the Indians had given another volley, they 
fled with great expedition to the river, whither the chief and their 
women and children had also fled during the fight. Some of the 
English pursued and killed many of them in the river, and 
others fell to pillaging and burning the village. Mogg disdained 
to fly with the rest, but kept possession of a wigwam, from which 
he fired upon the pillagers. In one of his discharges, he killed a 
Mohawk, whose brother, observing it, rushed upon and killed him, 
and thus ended the strife. There were about sixty warriors in 
the place, about thirty of whom were killed. 

"The famous Rasle shut himself up in his house and fired upon 
the English ; and having wounded one, Lieutenant Jaques, of 
Newbury burst open the door and shot him through the head, 
although Moulton had given orders that none should kill him." — 
From History of Newbury by Joshua Coffin, S. H. S. 

Manuscript note of John Farmer in a copy of Third Edition 
of Book of the Indians ! Page 312 — of Ibid. 

Harmon was the General in the expedition, and for a time had 
the honor of it, but Moulton, according to Governor Hutchinson, 
achieved the victory, and it was afterwards acknowledged by the 
country. He was a prisoner, when a small boy, among the In- 
dians, being among those taken at the destruction of York in 
1692. He died at York, July 20, 1765, aged seventy-seven. 

Note — Harmon did not arrive at the village till near night, 
when the action was over. — Hutchinson 11, 313. 

Col. Moulton was a descendant of Thomas (Jeremiah*, 
Thomas 1 ). 



CHAPTER XL 

DESCENDANTS OF JOHN OF HAMPTON, N. H. 

Nearly or quite all the Moultons in the State of Maine arc 
descended from Thomas of York, and from John and William of 
Hampton, all of whom first settled in New Hampshire at Winna- 
cunnet, which was after ward called Hampton. To the His- 
tory of Hampton by Joseph Dow and the record published by 
Augustus F. Moulton, we owe much of the information regarding 
the descendents of John. To this we have added considerable 
data, which we hope will afford to all descendants the means of 
tracing their lineage. 

The names of Thomas and John Moulton are found among 
the grantees and first settlers of Hampton. They had assigned 
to them adjoining house lots and lived neighbors to each other 
nearly twenty years, when Thomas sold his property to Rev. 
Timothy Dalton and removed to York, Maine. 

John Moulton and Anne, his wife, were from Ormsby in the 
County of Norfolk, England. They came to America in the 
spring of 1637, having then five children, one son and four daugh- 
ters. Another son born afterwards was baptized at Newbury, 
Massachusetts, and a daughter was born and baptized after their 
settlement in Hampton. 

The name of William Moulton appears at the same time. He 
had come from Ormsby also with the family of Robert Page, 
being a minor twenty years of age. He married Margaret, Mr. 
Page's daughter, and setttled near the others. His descendents 
and those of John are numerous in that vicinity. 

John and William were "examined" before leaving England 
on the same day, April 11, 1637, and came either in the ship John 
and Dorethy, of Ipswich, William Andrews, master, or the ship 



208 MOULTON ANNALS. 

Rose, of Yarmouth, commanded by a son of the same Andrews, 
which two ships appear to have come together. 

It is not certain when Thomas left England, but he is thought 
to have gone first to St. Christopher in 1635, then being twenty 
years of age, and thence to New England. The relationship of 
these three is unknown, though they are commonly believed to 
have been brothers. 

Some descendents of John Moulton of Hampton, New Hamp- 
shire : 

(1) John Moulton 1 was born in England about 1599, mar- 
ried Anne ; settled in Hampton, being one of those 

to whom the grant of the town was made. In 164 — he was 
chosen its first deputy or representative to the General Court in 
Boston. He died between January 23, 1649, an d October 1, 1650. 
Anne, his widow, died April 12, 1668, aged 69 years. 
Children : 

Henry, b. in England about 1623 ; m. Sobriety Hilton ; 

d. September 8, 1701. 
Mary, b. in England, 162 — ; m. William Sanborn ; d. *> 

October 11, 1686. 
Anne, b. in England ; unmarried when her father's will 

was made. 
Bridget, twin, b. in England, about 1634; d. unmarried. 
Jane, twin, b. in England about 1634; d. unmarried, 

March 19, 1699, aged 65 years. 
John, bap. at Newbury, Mass., March 16, 1638; m. 

Lydia Taylor; d. 1706 (?). 
Ruth, bap. at Hampton, Mass., March 7, 1641 ; m. 
Peter Johnson; d. September 7, 1718. 

' The twins Bridget and Jane were original characters. Rev. 
Cotton Mather wrote a letter concerning them to a friend in 
London ; the following is an extract : 

"At Hampton, a town about fifty miles from this place, there 
were twin sisters whose names were Bridget and Jane Moulton. 
The perpetual harmony and sympathy between the sisters was 
the observation of all the neighborhood. They were never con- 
tented, except when they were together. If one were desirous 
to go abroad the other would be impatient of staying at home.

JOHN OF HAMPTON. 200, 

If the one were merry the other would be airy. If the one were 
troubled the other would be chagrined. When one was for card- 
ing the other was for spinning. They lived a virgin life, and in 
this good accord reached about three-score years. Then Death, 
after a short sickness, arrested the one of them. The other grew 
full of pain and bid her friends not be in a hurry about her sister? 
funeral, for hers must accompany it. By dying within a few 
hours after her sister, she answered their expectations. Mr. 
John Cotton, the worthy minister of the place, preached a funeral 
sermon for this occasion on these words, 2 Sam. 1 123 : "In their 
death they were not divided."

JOHN OF HAMPTON. 243 

GENERAL JONATHAN MOULTON. 

The ancestors of General Jonathan Moulton were among the 
traditional fifty-six inhabitants from the County of Norfolk, 
England, who first settled in the town of Hampton — then Winni- 
cumet — in the year 1638. 

The names of John Multon (sometimes "Moulton") and 
Thomas Moulton appear in a partial list of these original settlers, 
which may be found in Belknap's History of New Hampshire, 
Vol. 1, page 37. 

General Jonathan Moulton was a descendent of John above 
named : he was born in Hampton, New Hampshire, June 30th, 
1726, and died at Hampton in the year 1788, at the age of 62. 
He was a large proprietor in lands, and several nourishing towns 
in the interior of this State owe their early settlement to his exer- 
tions and influence. This fact is mentioned in "Farmer and 
Moore's Gazetteer," published in 1823. When he was thirty- 
seven years old, the town of Moultonborough was granted to him 
and sixty-one others, by the Masonian proprietors, November 17, 
1763. He was already noted for the distinguished service which 
he had rendered in the Indian wars, which ended with the Ossipee 
tribe, along the northerly borders of Moultonborough, in 1763. 
Many of his adventures during this bloody period have been pre- 
served and transmitted to the present time ; enough indeed, to fill 
a large space in this brief sketch. 

It may be well to preserve one of these incidents in this record : 
An octogenarian in the vicinity of Moultonborough relates 
that, during the Indian wars, Colonel, afterwards General Jona- 
than Moulton went out with a scouting party from Dover. After 
numerous adventures, they met with and attacked a party of six 
Indians, near a place now known as Clark's Landing, on the shore 
of Lake Winnipesaukee, all of whom fell in the skirmish which 
ensued, with one exception. The Colonel had a large dog with 
him, which, after the affray was over, he placed upon the track 
of the escaped Indian. The dog ran off on to the ice. The party 
followed, and as they approached the entrance, of what is now 
Green Bay they saw in the distance that the dog had the Indian 



244 MOULTON ANNALS. 

down upon the ice; and when they reached the spot the Indian 
was dead, — killed by the dog. 

The active services of the General in these border wars had 
made him, at an early age, well and favorably known to the lead- 
ing men of that day. His numerous raids and scouts, in the region 
occupied by the Ossipee tribes, had made him well acquainted 
with the wilderness, and with the adjacent country upon the west- 
ern shores of the lake, and no doubt secured to him the land grant 
which he obtained, in common with many of his companions in 
arms, lie was rightly placed at the head of the grantees, by the 
Masonian proprietors, and the town of Moultonborough, which 
was named after him, perpetuates the memory of his rugged 
virtues and of his enterprising character. His descendents have 
been inhabitants of Moultonborough and of Centre Harbor to the 
present time. 

After obtaining the grant, the General devoted much of the 
remainder of his life to this territory, he obtained from Governor 
Wentworth the grant of land now known as the town of New 
Hampton, which was formerly a part of Moultonborough gore, 
then called "Moultonborough Addition." The following amusing 
account of the way in which General Monlton secured this last 
grant appears in Fogg's Gazeteer, and is to be found in other 
histories of those early times : 

"In 1763, General Jonathan Monlton. of Hampton, having an 
ox weighing one thousand four hundred pounds, fattened for the 
purpose, hoisted a flag upon his horns, and drove him to Ports- 
mouth as a present to Governor Wentworth. 

The General refused any compensation for the ox, but said 
he would like a charter of a small gore of land he had discovered 
adjoining the town of Moultonborough, of which he was one of 
the principal proprietors. The Governor granted this simple re- 
quest of General Moulton, and he called it New Hampton, in 
honor of his native town. 

This small gore of land contained nineteen thousand four hun- 
dred and twenty-two acres, a part of which now constitutes Centre 
Harbor."

JOHN OF HAMPTON. 245 

Thus it appears that General Moulton, by his energy and enter- 
prise largely contributed to the formation of three towns — one 
named New Hampton, by him ; another named Moultonborough 
for him ; and the third, Centre Harbor, was carved from a part 
of his grant called "Moultonborough Addition." 

Many curious traditions are still extant with regard to General 
Moulton. He is said to have traded his soul to Satan for a boot 
full of gold and then to have cheated the Devil by removing the 
bottom of the boot so it could not be filled. After his death the 
ghosts of himself and his wife were thought to revisit the old 
mansion by night, he. thumping with his heavy gold headed cane, 
and his wife moving along in her rustling silk gown. The ghosts 
were "laid" with formal exercises and afterwards walked no more. 

General Moulton is the hero of Whittier's poem, "The New 
Wife and the Old/' 

From Dow's History of Hampton we take the following: 

We have met General Moulton often in these pages ; but here 
let us pause and take our leave of him, for we shall meet him no 
more. We have seen him honoured year after year to represent 
his townsmen in the Legislature. We have seen him the intrepid 
commander, in responsible positions, amid the perils of war. We 
have never seen him false to his trust or incompetent in its execu- 
tion. A certain reticence and lofty bearing in the mastship affair 
once aroused the displeasure of his fellow citizens ; and perhaps 
the same qualities, with his general characteristics as a man in 
advance of his age, and shrewd in his business may have held the 
envy and dislike of many through life. 

And yet one cannot believe he would have been so honored 
and trusted through a most critical period of our history, had 
he been unworthy. 

General Jonathan was a descendant of John, of the fourth 
generation. (Jacob 3 , John 2 , John 1 .) 



DAVID MOULTON. 
(From a Portland Paper.) 
The good people of Portland, Maine were shocked to hear of 
the death of David Moulton, United States Deputy Collector of 



246 MOULTON ANNALS. 

Customs, which sad event occurred at his residence in Deering, 
Sunday morning. 

Mr. Moulton was in town the Thursday previous to his death 
attending to his duties at the Custom House as usual, but he 
complained of illness, and when he left the city in the afternoon 
for his home, it was never to return. His doctors, Dr. Foster, of 
Deering and Dr. Vose did all they could for him, but he died of 
typhoid pneumonia in fifty-four hours. He had often suffered 
from serious and severe attacks of gastric trouble but never before 
of lung trouble as far as we know. 

The loss of such a man as Mr. Moulton will be severe in the 
community. He was of a most amiable disposition, a man of great 
fidelity and integrity as his long connection with the Custom De- 
partment shows, and a man so universally cheerful, possessed of 
such a rare fund of wit and humor, that he endeared himself to 
all with whom he came in contact. To those with whom he was 
associated his loss will be keenly felt. Collector Anderson said 
yesterday he didn't know what they should do without Moulton, 
he was so accurate, and the system of accounts at the Custom 
House was so intricate. 

To the many associations to whom he gave his services as a 
reader — for his reputation as "Elder Crawford" was wide 
spread — he will be greatly missed. As a poet, he had much grace 
of language, and his travesty on the "Peabody Wake" will never 
be forgotten so long as George Peabody's name is remembered. 

David Moulton was sixth in descent from John Moulton, the 
emigrant ancestor, who was born at Ormsby, Norfolk County, 
England, about 1599. Left England, with his wife Annie and 
five children, in the spring of 1637; settled at Winnacunnett, New 
Hampshire, in 1638, admitted a freeman, May 22, 1639, was 
chosen the first deputy to the General Court the next September, 
and died about 1650. 

His grandfather, David Moulton, was a soldier of the Revo- 
lutionary War, and was in the battle of Butt's Hill, Rhode 
Island, fought August 29, 1778, under the command of General 
Sullivan. He married Dorothy, a descendant of Joseph Moulton, 
who was also one of the first settlers of Winnacunnett (Hampton), 



JOHN OF HAMPTON. 247 

New Hampshire. Removed from Hampton to Porter in 1794, and 
at the first town-meeting held after the incorporation of Porter 
in 1807, he was chosen chairman of the select-men and continued 
a member of the board until 1822, with the exception of two years. 

Joseph Moulton, second son, and father of the subject of this 
sketch, was born in 1797. He married Abigail Goodwin, daughter 
of Zachariah Beal, of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, February 
10, 1823. She was born at New Market, January 25, 1798. He 
was a shoemaker and tanner at Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and 
at Porter, Maine, until 1835, when he removed to Foxcroft, Maine, 
where he carried on farming until 1855, when he removed to 
Westbrook (now Deering). He held the office of Adjutant of 
Second Regiment, Second Brigade, Sixth Division, ten years ; of 
Deputy Sheriff for Oxford County, eight years ; for Piscataquis 
County, eight years ; of Coroner, for fourteen years ; of United 
States Deputy Marshal (appointed in 1840) ; and of selectman, 
assessor and overseer of the poor of Westbrook for the years 
1856-57. In politics he was a Democrat until the formation of 
the Republican party. 

Of their children, David was the oldest son and was born at 
Porter, November 21, 1825. He was educated at the town school 
of Porter and Foxcroft Academy. At the age of fourteen he be- 
came a clerk in Bangor. Subsequently he was a student at Fox- 
croft Academy, followed by two terms as a teacher. In the spring 
of 1844 he came to Portland, and for several years was a clerk in 
a hat and cap store. He afterwards set up business for himself, 
and engaged in the hat and cap trade, and for a time in the sale of 
corn and flour. May 15, 1863, he was appointed Deputy Collector 
of Customs for the District of Portland and Falmouth. This 
office he continued to hold, having officiated under Jedediah 
Jewett, Governor Washburn, Lot M. Morrill, Fred N. Dow and 
Samuel J. Anderson, Collectors. He also acted as cashier at the 
Custom House, and was responsible for a faithful and accurate 
disposition of all moneys received. General Taylor, for whom he 
cast his first vote, Lincoln and Grant, were his choice for presi- 
dents. He married, November 26, 1852, Elizabeth J., daughter 
of Ebenezer Wentworth, of Biddeford. His wife was born April 



248 MOULTON ANNALS. 

4, 1829, and died February 10, 1869, leaving five children, Abbie 
Cora, deceased, Henry C, Sarah Agnes, George Albert and Man- 
Lizzie. 

Mr. Moulton's two daughters resided with him at Deering. 
and his two sons resided in Maiden, Massachusetts, one of them 
doing business in Boston. He was a member of Woodford Lodge 
of Masons and the Masonic Relief and Portland Commandery ; 
a former member of Rramhall and a present member of Rocky 
Hill Lodge of Knights of Pythias ; a member of Harmony Lodge 
and Ivy Lodge of Odd Fellows, and the Odd Fellows Relief ; a 
member of Woodford Commandery Lmited Order of the Golden 
Cross ; a member of the Order of Good Templars, and of the Citi- 
zen's Relief. 

Mr. Moulton was a descendant of John, of the seventh gen- 
eration. (Joseph 9 , David 6 , John 4 , John 3 , John 2 , John 1 .) 



JOHN CARROLL M< HJLTON. 

John Carroll Moulton, son of Jonathan Smith Moulton and 
Deborah (Neal) Moulton, born in Centre Harbor, December 24, 
1810, is the subject of our sketch. In addition to the ordinary 
opportunities of the district school, in his native town, he attended 
Holmes Academy, at Plymouth, Xew Hampshire, where for sev- 
eral terms he pursued his studies under the instruction of the 
late Samuel Burns, who ranked among the foremost teachers of 
his time. To perfect himself in mathematical studies, for which 
he showed an early and natural aptitude, he placed himself under 
the tuition of Master Dudley Leavitt. the noted almanac-maker, 
who, for many years, opened an annual term of high school in 
Meredith, where he taught all the advanced branches of mathe- 
matics to pupils, who in that day flocked from every part of the 
country to place themselves at the feet of this great mathematical 
Gamaliel. These studies he ardently pursued far beyond the limits 
of the ordinary academical course, and they seem to have im- 
pressed upon him a permanent proficiency often called for and 
manifested in the various large business transactions, with which 





Y/// %t s^- 



JOHN OF HAMPTON. 249 

he has been connected for so many years. During the intervals of 
schools, he assisted his father — who was in trade and a large 
farmer — as clerk and general assistant in his extensive business. 
In 1831, at about the age of twenty, he opened a store and com 
menced trade at Sandwich, New Hampshire, where he remained 
about a year, when he returned, and resumed the same business 
at Centre Harbor. 

July 15, 1833, he married Nellie B. Senter. He then opened 
a hotel in what has since grown to be one of the famous board- 
ing-houses of Centre Harbor, and with the aid of his brilliant and 
accomplished wife, united the duties of landlord and merchant, 
which employments he continued there for several years. In 1836, 
Lake Village, New Hampshire, began to attract attention as a 
place of large prospective business, and Mr. Moulton left Centre 
Harbor, and opened a store at that place. He also engaged in 
manufacturing, and continued in these employments for several 
years. 

In 1841, he removed to Laconia, then known the world over as 
Meredith Bridge, and took charge of the Belknap Hotel. This 
being the only stage house of that lively place, it w r as usually in- 
undated with the stream of public travel, peculiar to those times. 
He continued this business about two years, when he opened a 
book-store and an apothecary-shop in a building, which stood on 
the site now occupied by the post office and the national bank. He 
was soon after appointed postmaster — in the latter part of Tyler's 
administration ; was re-appointed by President Polk, through 
whose term he held the office, which he continued to do a short 
time before the term of President Taylor, when, being a life-long 
Democrat, he was removed. He was re-appointed by President 
Pierce and also by President Buchanan, during whose terms he 
held the office, which he continued to do a short time under Presi- 
dent Lincoln, when he was superseded by the appointment of a 
Republican. Thus he held the o/ftce of postmaster during part of 
the terms of three Republican, and the full term of three Demo- 
cratic administrations, making his term of office about sixteen 
years in all. The duties of his long term of service were per- 



25O MOULTON ANNALS. 

formed in a manner universally acceptable and satisfactory to the 
public. 

In 1848, the Boston, Concord and Montreal Railroad was 
built and completed from Concord to Plymouth. Tn anticipation 
of this event, the firm of Charles Ranlet and Company built large 
and extensive car-works at Laconia, which they designed par- 
ticularly for the construction of freight cars. The firm com- 
menced and carried on the business, until the decease of the senior 
partner, in i860, when the works were suspended. In 1861, Mr. 
Moulton became a partner, and by his great energy and business 
capacity has developed a large business, which employs some two 
hundred men, most of whom are skilled workmen. The monthly 
payroll is about eight thousand dollars. The works have been 
repeatedly enlarged, and several extensive buildings erected, to 
accommodate the increase of business. For several years, passen- 
ger cars of the finest style and finish, as well as freight cars, have 
been built at their works, and their annual gross earnings are to 
be reckoned at several hundred thousand dollars. In February, 
1881, these car shops, with most of their machinery and contents. 
were burned to the ground, and in thirty days from the fire, cars 
were being built in new shops, which had been erected on the old 
foundations. Mr. Moulton was then over seventy years of age, 
and was well able to retire from business, with an ample com- 
petence, to the quiet repose, which most men desire as the closing 
blessing of an active and arduous life. 

In 1871 and 1872 he was chosen Senator from District Number 
Six, and performed his official duties with his accustomed prompt- 
ness and fidelity, and to the satisfaction of his constituents. He 
was also elected Councilor for District Number Two, in 1874. In 
1876 he was one of the Delegates to the Democratic National 
Convention held at St. Louis, which nominated Samuel J. Tilden 
for the Presidency, and in the ensuing Presidential Campaign 
was one of the candidates on the Democratic ticket for elector. 

In 1865, the rapid growth of the manufacturing, commercial 
and other business interests at Laconia and Lake Village sug- 
gested to him the great need of additional financial facilities. To 
meet these demands, it was necessary to procure a charter from 



JOHN OF HAMPTON. 251 

the Government to establish a national bank at Laconia. Almost 
insurmountable obstacles to success in this enterprise were en- 
countered, and finally overcome. The charter was procured and 
the bank established, largely by the active and persistent labor of 
the subject of this sketch. Upon the organiation of the Laconia 
National Bank, he was chosen its first president, and continuously 
and acceptably held the position till the time of his death. It may 
well be said, that the impartiality with which the accomodations of 
this bank have been extended to promote all hopeful enterprises, 
has done much to advance the growth and prosperity of the place. 

For several years, Mr. Moulton was a stockholder in the Gil- 
ford Hosiery Corporation at Laconia. In 1868, he became sole 
owner of the entire stock and property. He steadily continued 
its successful operation unti the factory employed about one hun- 
dred and fifty hands, mostly females, at the mill, and gave employ- 
ment to many households in the surrounding country. Mr. 
Moulton and Benjamin E. Thurston were joint owners of the 
extensive flouring and grain mill of Laconia. He was also a 
large owner of the stock in the Laconia Gas, Light Company, 
and did much to place this important pioneer enterprise upon 
the solid basis it now holds among the public improvements cf 
the growing town. 

Mr. Moulton was a member of the Independent Order of Odd 
Fellows. He was one of the charter members of Winnipisseoge 
Lodge No. 7, which was established at Laconia in 1842. He 
became — after many years, one of the Uniformed Patriarchs of 
the Order. 

His domestic and family relations are as follows : 

July 15, 1833, he married Nellie B. Senter, of Centre Harbor, 
who was the daughter of Samuel M. Senter. Her ancestor, 
Colonel Joseph Senter, and Ebenezer Chamberlain were the first 
settlers in that town in 1765 and 1767. She died November 18, 
i860, at Laconia. Five children were born to them, of whom 
three survive. 

Edwin Carroll Moulton was born May 25, 1834, and died 
November 13, 1867. He married Augusta Ranlet, of Laconia, 
daughter of Charles Ranlet, and their only child, Nelly Augusta

Moulton. He was an active business man, full of promise, and 
many friends still cherish his memory. 

Samuel Moore Senter Moulton was born August t, 1837, and 
resides at Laconia. May 2, 186 1, he enlisted and served in the 
New Hampshire Volunteers. July 26, 186 1, he enlisted in the 
Regular Army of the United States, and served three years during 
the Rebellion, with the mounted troops. Since the war he has 
been employed as book-keeper, clerk, and paymaster in the car 
fastories above referred to. He was one of the selectmen of La- 
conia for the years 1868 and 1869; and was Representative of 
the town to the Legislature for the years 1876 and 1877. He 
married Martha B. Thurston, daughter of Benjamin E. Thurston, 
who is well-known. He served as Representative to the Legis- 
lature from the town of Moultonborough in Carroll CCounty, 
for the years 1867 and 1868, after which he removed to, and 
now resides in Laconia, which town he represented in the Legis- 
lature in 1 88 1. He was also High Sheriff of Belknap County in 
the years 1874 and 1875. 

William Hale Moulton was born July 20, 1844, died March

Horatio Francis Moulton was born January 24, 1848. During 
the war he was three years in the United States Navy. He was 
one of the naval cadets, and intended to pass his life in the 
United States service, but was prevented by pulmonary disease.

Joshua B. Holden, of Boston, Massachusetts, and their family 
consists of four children. Mr. Moulton married his second wife, 
Sarah A. McDougal, August 18, 1866. Her many virtues and use- 
ful charities have endeared her to a large circle of warm friends. 

The lives of men who are absolved in the exacting duties of 
many diversified and burdensome pursuits are not crowded with 
incidents which interest remote posterity; but the successful and 
many sided enterprises of such men exert a wide and beneficial 
influence in their day and generation. Such a man was Mr. Moul-

JOHN OF HAMPTON. 253 

ton. He was always an open-handed, public-spirited citizen. To 
him, and to two or three others, we owe the building of the finest 
church in Laconia, and the support of a liberal ministry. The 
town of his adoption still continues to exhibit many evidences of 
his liberal contributions to whatever tended to promote the growth 
of the town, the prosperity of its business, or the public welfare. 

One of his last enterprises for the public benefit was the 
building of the most elegant opera house in New England — 
outside of Boston — at an expense of $70,000, near the centre of 
his town.

CHAPTER XII. 

DESCENDANTS OF WILLIAM MOULTON, OF HAMPTON, N. H. 

(i) William Moulton, born in Ormsby, Norfolk County, 
England, about 1617, married Margaret, daughter of Robert and 
Lucia (Lucy) Page, with whose family he came to New England. 
His age is given as twenty years in his "examination" before 
leaving England, April 11, 1637. They landed probably at Bos- 
ton, thence he and the Pages went to Newbury, Mass., where it 
seems they remained something over a year before joining the 
new settlement at Winnacunnett, now Hampton, N. H., in 1639. 
At that place he took up his permanent abode, settling quite near 
Thomas and John Moulton. He died April 18, 1664. His will, 
which is found in Essex County, Mass., Probate Records, Vol. 2, 
pages 9, 10 and 11, bears date March 8, 1663 (4). He declares 
himself to be at that time "sick and weak of body." It is evident 
that Mr. Moulton was a man of more than ordinary ability and 
force of character. Coming as he did to a new country before 
arriving at his majority, presumably bringing little with him and 
dying at the early age of forty-seven, he left what was, for those 
times a large estate — a double mansion in one of the best locali- 
ties of the new township with "orchyd," tillage land, "medow" 
and marshes, together with personal estate to no inconsiderable 
amount. All this was distributed by his will with a curious 
particularity characteristic of the old country. This lengthy and 
formal document is appended in abbreviated form, as to give it 
entire would occupy too much space.

The tender care exhibited for "Margritt. his loving wife," 
shows that his early affection for her had suffered no abatement 
in the lapse of years. An imaginative mind can find much of 
romance and pathos in the story of this puritan youth and maiden 
who left their English home in the little hamlet of Ormsby "near 
Great Yarmouth and not far from Norwich. In County Norfolk" 
and came for conscience sake to New England wilderness only 
seventeen years after the Mayflower dropped anchor at Plymouth. 
Margaret, his widow, married 2d, Lieut. John Sanborn. She 
died July 13, 1699.

of Nonsuch river, near "Rocky Hill," opposite what is now known 
as the Daniel Carter place. He was a blacksmith, and became 
the owner of large tracts of land, holding most of what is now 
Scarborough Corner School District, and, it is said, about two 
miles of Nonsuch meadows. He had a large square house and 
several large barns. He gave each of his children a farm with 
large square house. In later years he paid a considerable sum 
in settlement for "his time" to the man to whom he had been 
apprenticed. He is mentioned in Southgate's History of Scar- 
borough, as one of the prominent men in the town after its second 
settlement. He was an especial favorite of Charles Pine, the 
hunter and Indian fighter, whose granddaughter he married, 
and Pine attempted by will to entail a tract of land upon Daniel 
and his issue. He married (1) April 25, 1750, Grace, daughter 
of John Reynolds and Grace Pine. Daniel and Grace, his wife,

tobacco. Close at his heels came his daughter, Anna, with the 
china teapot, cups and saucers. Lydia brought the great Bible. 
But when all were in, the mother was missing. Where was 
mother? She must be killed. 'No,' says Lydia; 'mother said 
she would not leave the house looking so. She would put things 
away and a little more to rights, and then she would come." Di- 
rectly mother came, bringing the looking-glass, knives and forks, 
etc.'' — "An Indian Raid on Marietta," from "Lives of Early Set-

MRS. ANN MOULTOX. 
[See numbers 312 and 321.] 

Mrs. Ann Moulton, wife of Samuel Moulton, mother of Alvah 
Moulton. wife of Dr. James W. Bradbury, mother of Dr. Samuel 
Moulton Bradbury, mother of Hon. James W. Bradbury. 

Ann, the second daughter of Samuel Moulton and his wife 
Hannah (Noyes) Moulton, was born at Newbury, September 2nd, 
1777. When she was about seven years of age, her father moved 
his family from Newbury to Parsonsfield, previous to its incor- 
poration into a town, where he cleared up a farm and made a 
comfortable and convenient home, in which he passed a long and 
useful life. He was for many years a deacon of the Free Will 
Baptist Church, a pillar in the church, venerable for his virtues 
piety. His son Samuel was a deacon of the same church at the 
same time, and trod in the foot-steps of his Christian father. The 
children enjoyed only such limited advantages of education as such 
frontier settlements afford; but they had the inestimable blessing 



3l8 MOULTON ANNALS. 

of the training in a pious household, where industry, economy, 
the domestic virtues, and the precepts of Christianity were incul- 
cated by precept and example. 

Ann, the subject of this notice, was married to Samuel the son 
of Cutting- Moulton, and they settled upon a farm near the village 
on the middle road, in Parsonsfield. Their married life was short, 
he dying in about two years. The children by this marriage were 
Alvah, born October nth, 1798, and a daughter, who died in 
infancy. 

In 1800 she was married to Dr. James Bradbury, who had 
recently entered upon the practice of his profession as a physician 
in that town. The children by this marriage were, James Ware, 
born June 10th, 1802. Samuel Moulton, born August 22, 1804. 
Clarissa Ann, born July n, 1807. The two sons are now (1888)' 
living. The daughter married Dr. Charles G. Parsons, and they 
settled in Windham where she died March 22, 1850. She was a 
most amiable and excellent person. Ann Bradbury, her mother, 
was a woman of great energy and decision of character, industri- 
ous and orderly in her household arrangements, a kind and de- 
voted mother and wife. For many years she was a great sufferer 
from ill health, which impaired her naturally strong constitution, 
and terminated her days before she had reached the age of 58. 
She died March 22nd. 1835, and was buried in the cemetery near 
the village before named. 

Airs. Ann Moulton (Moulton) was a descendent of William, 
of the sixth generation. (Samuel 5 , Samuel 4 , Joseph', William 2 , 
William 1 .) 



HON. JAMES W. BRADBURY [No. 321]. 

A biography of the Hon. James W. Bradbury, one of the dis- 
tinguished sons of Ann Moulton. may be properly introduced 
here, immediately after the brief notice of his mother which ap- 
pears on the preceding pages, written by his own hand in his 
eighty-sixth year. Perhaps no better idea of his high attain- 
ments and achievements, as well as noble character could be

given, than appears in the speeches of his distinguished cotem- 
poraries at the anniversary dinner given in his hononr, upon his 
eighty-fifth birthday, and at the termination of his duties as 
President of Maine Historical Society, which office he had filled 
for many years. The following extracts from publications of the 
proceedings upon that occasion, will perhaps be a sufficient dis- 
closure of his life and character. 

At a meeting of the standing Committee of the Maine His- 
torical Society, held in Portland, March 10, 1887, on motion of 
Hon. William Goold, of Windham, it was voted that meetings of 
the Society be held on the tenth day of June next, and as that day 
is the eighty-fifth anniversary of the birth of the honored Presi- 
dent of the Society, Hon. James Ware Bradbury, L.L. D., of 
Augusta, it was also voted that the Society observe the day in 
some special manner. Arrangements for a complimentary ban- 
quet were made by the Committee, and invitations were extended 
to the members of the Society to participate in the same. The 
Presidents of the several Historical Societies of New England, 
and the surviving college classmates of Mr. Bradbury, were in- 
vited to become the guests of the Society on the occasion. 

On the evening of the 10th of June, at six o'clock, the mem- 
bers of the Society and their guests assembled in the parlors of 
the Falmouth Hotel. Prominent among them was the special 
guest of the occasion, Hon. James W. Bradbury, President of the 
Society, whose birthday the gentlemen present had assembled to 
honor. With his bright, clear eye, and erect figure, he belied his 
eighty-five years ; whose almost only sign was betokened by his 
long snow-white hair. Among the other guests who attracted 
great attention was the revered Ex. Vice-President of the United 
States, Hon. Hannibal Hamlin, who at the age of seventy-eight, 
appeared younger than many men of sixty. It is a rare circum- 
stance that two men who have attained such distinction as Mr. 
Bradbury and Mr. Hamlin can be found both residents of the 
same State, the one representing its leading Historical Society 
by the highest office in its gift, and the other that of the leading 
Historical Society of the eastern part of the Commonwealth.

They served together as Senators in the United States Senate 
nearly forty years ago. 

James Ware Bradbury was born June ioth, 1802, at Parsons- 
field, York County, Maine, where his father, Dr. James Brad- 
bury, was a physician of eminence. He graduated at Bowdoin 
College in the Class of 1825, that included Longfellow, Haw- 
thorne, and J. I. C. Abbott, among its members. He taught the 
Hallowell Academy for a year, and then studied law with Mr. 
(afterwards judge), Shepley, and with Rufus Mclntyre. In 1830, 
Mr. Bradbury settled in Augusta, where he devoted himself to 
his profession. He edited the "Maine Patriot" for one year, and 
was also County Attorney. In 1844, first as a nominating delegate 
at Baltimore, and afterwards as President of the Maine Elec- 
toral College, he assisted in making Mr. Polk President of the 
United States. He had hardly taken his seat in 1847 when he 
was called on by the death of his colleague, Senator Fairfield, to 
pronounce the customary euology. During his entire connection 
with the Senate he held a place on the Committee on Judiciary, 
and was Chairman of the Committee on Printing. He was Chair- 
man of the Committee on the French Spoliation Claims and made 
an elaborate speech on the bill in favor of the claiments, which 
passed the Senate by a large majority. He declined a re-election 
before the expiration of his term of office. He was an overseer 
and is now a Trustee of Bowdoin College. On the death of Prof. 
Cleveland, he was chosen Corresponding Secretary of the Maine 
Historical Society, and on the death of Judge Bourne, its Presi- 
dent. 

The gentlemen present at the dinner complimentary to Mr. 
Bradburv formed a representative assemblage of the men of let- 
ters of Maine. At the head of the table sat Prof. Henry L. Chap- 
man of Bowdoin College, President of the occasion. At the right 
was seated President Bradbury. The guests were numerous, and 
among the most distinguished people of the nation. 

If space permitted, we should be glad to quote extensively from 
the speeches on this occasion. It may be said that Hon. Wm. 
Goold of Windham voiced the sentiments of all present, in saying : 

"My respect for our esteemed President has increased with

our intercourse. I knew his father, a respected physician. He 
lies buried near the little country church where I usually attend. 
His tall monument looks approvingly at the window near my seat. 
I never see this memorial to your father, Mr. President, but I 
think of yourself. 

"Softly, oh softly, the years have swept by thee, 
Touching thee lightly with tenderest care ; 
Sorrow and death they have often brought nigh thee, 
Yet have they left thee but vigor to wear. 
Growing old gracefully, 
Gracefully fair."' 

Hon. George F. Talbot said : "I think it was Alexander, of 
whom our school-books somewhere told us, that asked in his 
youth which he had rather have been, Achilles or Homer, re- 
plied: "And which had you rather be, the victor in the Olympic 
games, or the herald that proclaims his name'" Much that has 
been said hitherto in recognition of the valuable services and com- 
manding abilities of our honored guest has had reference to his 
career as a scholar, as a lawyer, and as a co-laborer with us in 
work of gathering and preserving the facts, the traditions, and 
the documents out of which the completed history of our State is 
to be created. I have not forgotten that our guest is a statesman, 
not less than a scholar, and that his long service as a legislator in 
tlu- highest council of the nation has had no insignificant influence 
in making the history he has helped to tell." 

Mr. Bradbury is a descendant of William, of the seventh 
generation. (Ann", Samuel', Samuer, Joseph 3 , William 2 ,

DR. ALVAH MOULTON. 

From Dearborn's History of Parsonsfield, we take the fol- 
lowing : 

Dr. Alvah Moulton 7 , Samuel 6 . Cutting', Samuel 4 , Joseph 3 , 
William 2 , William 1 ), son of Samuel and Ann (Moulton) Moul- 
ton, and half-brother of Hon. James W. Bradbury of Augusta and 



322 MOULTON ANNALS. 

Samuel Bradbury, M. D., of Limington, was a student of Dr. 
James Bradbury, his step-father, and Prof. Ramsey to whom 
reference has been made. He was born in Parsonsfield, October 
ii, 1798, and died September II, 1868. In 182 1, he married Miss 
Mary Dalton, daughter of Samuel Dalton of Parsonsfield, and re- 
moved to Ossipee, N. H., where he resided until his death. He 
was a man of high moral character, integrity and uprightness, 
commanding the respect of all who knew him ; a physician of large 
practice and a surgeon of repute. His wife was a woman, coming 
from one of the best families of the town, every way worthy the 
noble husband. They reared a family of twelve children, six 
sons and six daughters, all arriving to manhood and womanhood. 
Eight yet survive — five daughters, all married to men of wealth 
and influence, and three sons, successful, or retired business men, 
worthv a noble ancestrv. 

- 

Dr. Moulton was ever active in all the moral reforms of the 
age ; an energetic promoter of temperance, an ardent supporter 
of religious institutions, an active member of the church, given to 
hospitality, generous, and courteous to all. To his profession he 
gave his best efforts, and to his professional brothers his warmest 
sympathies, ever treating them with deference and politeness. 
His presence in the household where sickness and sorrow pre- 
vailed was helpful and gave a sense of relief, and his countenance 
ever beaming with gratitude and affection was a benediction. 



FERDINAND MOULTON [Xo. 674 1. 

Ferdinand Moulton, son of Dr. Alvah Moulton 7 , (Samuel", 
Cutting', Samuel', Joseph 3 , William*, William 1 ) was born in 
Ossipee, N. H., September 26, 1824, and died October 13, 1866, 
in the mountains of West Virginia whither he had hastened to 
escape that dread enemy, consumption. The Boston Transcript, 
October 24th, of the same year published an obituary notice from 
which the following is taken : 

"So passed away to that unknown country a man whose many 
social virtues and gentlemanly qualities had endeared him to all

who knew him. It was our good fortune to be well acquainted 
with Mr. Moulton. He was a man of fine legal attainments, hav- 
ing been for many years a member of the Washington Bar, and 
lately engaged in the prosecution of Government claims. He was 
a thorough classical scholar, and a man of unblemished char- 
acter. 

We remember the last words he spoke to us after he had be- 
come convinced of his approaching dissolution, and never did 
language sound so sad, or was a sentence so fraught with meaning 
as the one he spoke to us. Taking our hands in his and looking 
calmly up in our face he said, "The sceptre is departing from 
Judah." And so he passed away. 

We shall ever remember him as a true and generous friend 
and pleasant companion. 

Mr. Moulton was the author of several works of importance 
to the legal profession, among which that on "Pension Laws" had 
been accepted by the United States as a standard authority. 



AUGUSTUS FREEDOM MOULTON [No. 593]. 

Augustus Freedom Moulton, Counsellor-at Law, was born 
in Jay, Franklin County, Maine, May 1, 1848; son of Freedom 
and Shuah Coffin Carter Moulton. His father was born in Scar- 
borough, fitted for college at Gorham Academy, but did not 
enter ; was a teacher and farmer, a member of the School Com- 
mittee in Jay and in Scarborough, and Town Clerk of Scar- 
borough at the time of his death in 1857. His mother, Shuah 
Coffin ,was daughter of Ezra and Sarah Fabyan Carter of Scar- 
borough, and was also a teacher. His paternal ancestry traces 
back through Freedom Moulton, Capt. Joshua Moulton, Charles 
Moulton to Capt. Daniel Moulton, active in Revolutionary times, 
who came to Scarborough from Hampton, N. H., about 1745. 
Capt. Daniel was descended from William of Hampton, the 
Emigrant, through Jonathan and Robert. 

Augustus F. Moulton received his education in the common 
schools in Scarborough, where his father removed from Jay in 



324 MOULTON ANNALS. 

1853, at Gorham Academy, Saco High School and Westbrook 
Seminary, where he graduated in 1869. He graduated from Bow- 
doin College in 1873, first in his class. He was Tutor in Bowdoin 
for a year and resigned in 1874 to enter upon the study of law 
in the office of Hon. William L. Putnam, in Portland. In 1876, 
he was admitted to the Bar in Cumberland County, and at once 
entered upon the practice of his profession in Portland, wher he 
has since been actively engaged, making a specialty of mercantile 
and corporation law and establishing an extensive business in the 
State and United States Courts. Although established in busi- 
ness in Portland, he retained his residence in Scarborough until 
1896. He was a member of the School Committee there fifteen 
years and held other town offices. He was a member of the State 
Legislature in 1878 and again in 1879, serving each term upon the 
Judiciary Committee. He is a member of the Board of Trus- 
tees of Westbrook Seminary and of the Fraternity and Cumber- 
land Clubs in Portland, of the Portland Board of Trade, Maine 
Historical Society, Maine Genealogical Society and in college was 
a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon and Phi Beta Kappa. He 
is a prominent mason, being Past Commander of Portland Com- 
mandery, Knights Templar. He is also Past Chancellor of Bram- 
hall Lodge. Knights of Pythias. In 1896, he removed to Deering, 
Maine, where he now resides, and was there in 1898, elected 
Mayor of the City. He has never married. His family have all 
been interested in educational matters, his father, mother, his 
three sisters and himself having all been school teachers. 

Mr. Moulton is a descendant of William, of the eighth gen- 
eration. (Freedom 7 , Joshua 6 , Charles 5 , Daniel\, Jonathan 3 , Rob- 
ert 2 , William 1 .) 



HENRY W. MOULTOX. 

Capt. Henry W. Moulton was born in Ossipee, N. H., May 
3rd, 1833, and received an excellent education in the schools of 
his native state. His intention was to further pursue his studies, 
following a professional career, but his health being seriously

affected, he was obliged to abandon this plan and engage in travel, 
passing a year in Central America and California. 

The change of plan was a life-long disappointment to Mr. 
Moulton whose keenest pleasures lay in the pursuit of literature 
and the enjoyment of the other fine arts. Though often mentioned 
in later years as "a typical business man, his closest friends well 
knew how irksome to him were the details of business life and 
they remember him now as a lover of the beautiful and an accom- 
plished critic of architecture, painting and poetry. 

His residence in California led to his acquaintance with the 
Chinese and developed an interest in the inhabitants of the Mid- 
dle Kingdom, which lasted through his entire life. It was here 
that he instructed the first class of Chinamen ever taught in this 
country, and his kindness to them resulted in the devoted friend- 
ship of many of his pupils. 

At twenty years of age he came to Xewburyport, the home of 
his ancestors, and soon after made his first business venture, es- 
tablishing the paint and drug business in that city. 

In 1855. Mr. Moulton married Miss Susan F. Whittemore, a 
beautiful and accomplished young lady, well-known in Newbury- 
port as a successful teacher and a sweet singer. Six children came 
to gladden their home, the only son. William L., living less than 
a year. 

When the War of the Rebellion broke out Mr. Moulton en- 
listed in the 32nd Massachusetts Infantry and served with credit, 
holding a captain's commission. 

He was a member of the Enrollment Board under the draft, 
with an office in Salem. His war record is an excellent one, and 
at the time of his death he was a valuable member of A. W. Bart- 
lett Post 49, G. A. R. 

In 1864. he was a member of the General Court, earnestly ad- 
vocating the right of the city he represented. 

Soon after the war Captain Moulton received an appointment 
as United States Marshal of Idaho and served for several years. 
On his return to Xewburyport he engaged extensively in real 
estate transactions, acquiring a large amount of land, principally 
at the North end. 



326 MOULTON ANNALS. 

The beautiful home, built by Mr. Moulton at this time, on the 
banks of the Merrimac, in Newburvport, is closely associated with 
his memory. It is described in a subsequent chapter entitled 
"Places named Moulton." 

Capt. Moulton's enterprise was made evident by his attempt to 
establish a large carriage manufacturing business in Ward 6, 
erecting several factory buildings and numerous tenements. 

The work was well underway and apparently his efforts were 
to be crowned with success when the great panic of 1873 came and 
the planning and expenditure of money was ruthlessly rendered of 
no avail. The thriving little village which had been named Moul- 
tonville (which name it bears to-day) became again a peaceful 
residential section. Had the panic not occurred, there is no doubt 
but what his plans would have succeeded. 

It was during this period that Captain Moulton attempted to 
have the University of Modern Languages established here under 
the offer from the United States Government. 

The Chinese Minister was prevailed upon to come here and 
view the proposed situation. A large academy was built near the 
carriage shops, which may now be seen, and all other preliminary 
steps taken to secure the university, but owing to circumstances 
over which Captain Moulton had no control, the university was 
not secured for Newburvport. 

Nothing daunted Captain Moulton continued his efforts to- 
wards building up the city, and much of the best land was con- 
verted into house lots and utilized as building sites. 

During the last twenty-five years of his life Captain Moulton 
was engaged in the real estate business, having an office in Boston. 

But the malaria, contracted in the days of the Civil War, had 
taken firm hold of his system, and in January, 1896, he was 
obliged to relinquish his grasp on the active duties of life. May 
13th of the same year, he "passed to the great majority," leaving 
behind him a noble record of courage, energy and fidelity. 

Captain Moulton was of a deeply religious nature, which 
found its best expression in a broad Christianity, embracing all 
sects and creeds. In his vouth, he became a member of a Free 




(Daughter of No. 680.) 



WILLIAM OF HAMPTON. 327 

Baptist Church in Maine, but that old church had been swept away 
in the changes of time, and in the latter part of his life, he united 
with the Belleville Congregational Church. 

A delightful and entertaining talker, Captain Moulton was the 
life of the home circle. 

Many a time was the breakfast hour prolonged, while the 
family listening to fascinating tales of travel, exciting war 
stories, or able exposition of the public topics of the day. His 
wonderful fund of information and his able judgment were 
brought to bear upon every topic of general interest, giving 
his daughter a more liberal education than could be gained 
from any text books. 

In the Boston Transcript of May 21st, 1896, we read the trib- 
ute of his friend, which is a just estimate of his character 

"The heroic life of Captain Moulton teaches us not to despair, 
no matter what difficulties arise. He succeeded in many things 
when others were hopeless, and he died as heroically as he lived, 
with that sweet and deathless hope which was an inspiration to 
all who kew him. He will never be forgotten, for he never be- 
trayed a friend ; and although he seldom made, he never feared an 
enemy. Such men as he were the foundation of our Republic, 
and men as sincere as he alone can save it from the storm-clouds 
which threaten. Whittier said of him, to me, when Moulton came 
home from the army : 'A few such men as Moulton would save 
society.' He was tenderly loved by such men as Whittier, and 
his friendship and the loss of his society will make his memory 
lasting as life." 

Henry W. Moulton 8 , the author of "Moulton Annals," was a 
descendant of William ( Alvah 7 , Samuel', Cutting 6 , Sam- 
uel 4 , Joseph 3 , William 3 , William 1 .) 



CHAPTER XIII. 



MOULTON SILVERSMITHS. 



The primitive Colonial silversmith of New England was 
William Moulton 2 , whose first silver shoe buckles appeared 
about 1690, and his son Joseph Moulton was the first goldsmith 
of New England whose successors have continued the business 
down to the present time. This enterprising father and son 
were forerunners of the great army of craftsmen, who, two 
centuries later, offer magnificent products in the precious 
metals, turning out an infinite variety of spoons, cutlery, hol- 
low-ware and jewelry, in all the splendor of the modern art. 

Yea, more. Out of a rude "Black-smith & White-smith 
shop" of about 1690 has grown through eight generations, in 
the direct line, one of the most superb solid silver-ware fac- 
tories in the world. The stately and extensive works of the 
"Towle Manufacturing Company," located in Newburyport, 
whose elegant goods in gold and silver are known throughout 
America, is the mature result of the first plant on the banks 
of the Merrimac River, near Moulton Hill, Newbury. It has 
been brought down to us by many generations of good and 
true workmen in silver and gold. From the little shop down 
to the present time, each generation of silver and goldsmiths 
has been noted for fidelity and perfect reliability, always giving 
genuine work and material. The name "Moulton" has been 
a perfect guarantee all these years whenever stamped upon 
spoons or other ware. Mr. Towle, the founder of the Towle 
Manufacturing Company, learned his trade with Joseph Moul- 
ton, a typical representative of the best qualities of his line of 
goldsmith progenitors. His son William still continues the 
business. We, therefore, claim this large and successful manu- 
factory as the legitimate successor of "Little William," who 



MOULTON SILVERSMITHS. 329 

founded the Moulton family and the silver and goldsmiths 
business in Newbury, away back in the far past, when the 
Indian still sped over its waters in his light canoe. I cannot 
forbear to sketch this ancestor, whose courage and enterprise 
were conspicuous in days when life was made up of a continual 
battle with a dreary climate, a barren land in a wilderness of 
savage beasts and savage men, environed by poverty! Yet 
cheerful and brave was this first silversmith born in America. 
His father, named "William Moulton," had left Ormsby, Nor- 
folk County, England, when only seventeen years of age and 
sailed to America in a little ship with Capt. Robert Page and 
family, arriving at Ipswich in 1635 ; having made a stay of 
two years at Newbury, he proceeded to Hampton, N. H., 
whither a brother John and a brother Thomas had preceded 
him. 

The long voyage across an unknown and perilous sea had 
given him a chance to cultivate the friendship of the Captain's 
daughter, Margaret. This he did so successfully that it has 
given a bias to all his descendants, moving them at an early 
age to matrimonial alliances. William and Margaret pros- 
pered in their colonial home, and at'the age of forty-seven 
he owned a comfortable large house, with flocks and herds and 
plenty of field, pasture and woodland. 

Likewise, sons and daughters had been given them. Some 
were nearly grown when the icy hand of death fell upon 
William and left Margaret a widow. Seeing the approaching 
end, William had made a judicious will, the last item of which 
was "to the child yet unborn, five pounds." 

A few weeks from the sad obsequies another child's voice 
was heard in the house. To his inheritance of five pounds his 
mother added the name of William. It was the cherished 
name of the ruddy lad with blue eyes and flaxen hair whose 
father had left dear old England with her, a bonny lass, twenty 
years before. And the child grew fast and waxed strong. 
When about sixteen years, spent in study and farming, had 
passed, William took his five pounds with interest and jour- 



330 MOULTON ANNALS. 

neyed west of Hampton seven or eight miles to Amesbury 
Ferry, crossing the Merrimac at that point to the village of 
Newbury that had grown up on the south side of the river. 
Here was already established a boat-building business, a tan- 
nery and a rude tavern. Many well-cultivated farms stretched 
away from the river to "the great woods," which afterwards 
developed quite rapidly into the farming village of West New- 
bury. Here William found employment among the people. 
Many excellent families had already arrived in the vicinity; 
the Bartletts, Merrills, Chases, Longs, Poors, Woodmans, 
Huses, and others. A certain Major Emery had married a 
Widow Webster, who brought him a ready-made family — an 
entire brood of little Websters, from which the great Daniel 
Webster descended. All these he adopted and loved as his 
own. One of the oldest, John Webster, had grown to man- 
hood and married, naming his daughter Abigail for one of his 
sisters. Now this "Abigail" was a lovely girl, and William, 
quick like his father in perceiving fine qualities, promptly mar- 
ried her. He first bought four acres of land, having saved all 
his hard-earned wages, and before he was twenty-one had 
built him a house, into one timber of which he cut the figures 
"1683." Into this house he took Abby as his wife, when he was 
twenty-one. Before his front door he drew with oxen a large 
flat stone, for a door-step. There it served for nearly two hun- 
dred years, till the old house came down, when it was drawn 
to "Moulton Castle," so called, and now does service for de- 
scendants of William, in the eighth generation. Over this 
stone he walked many a hungry Indian to be fed and many 
a soldier of the French and Indian War. Many times has 
Hannah Dustin (the slayer of ten Indians) stepped over that 
stone to visit her cousin, William Moulton's wife. I love to 
sit on that old step and dream of those vanished days. 

William's family grew apace. His son Joseph was large 
enough to help in the farm work and in a little store which 
William had established on the Newbury side of the Merrimac, 
near the ferry. He prospered and established a "Fuller's Mill." 
He also bought land on which was limestone that he converted 



MOULTON SILVERSMITHS. 331 

into ''quick lime." Near his store he established a "Black- 
smith & Whitesmith Shop." Here he hired an emigrant who 
could hammer silver, and converted coin into silver shoe 
buckles. A few pair of these and an occasional rude silver 
spoon was all that the country demanded. 

There was no wealth or luxury and but little money. Yet 
the business steadily grew. A lucky settler might get an 
extra return for furs sent to England, enabling him to indulge 
in a pair of silver shoe buckles for his wife. From 1700 to I740 
a new town rapidly sprang into existence ; it was later known 
as Newburyport. To this growing place Joseph and his son 
William removed their whitesmithing shop, and at about this 
period introduced the manufacture of gold beads, which 
wealthy dames wore and bequeathed as heirlooms to their de- 
scendants. Soup ladles, "hollow-ware" and fine jewelry were 
introduced by successive Moulton manufacturers ; spoons of 
all sizes were made by them before the revolution and ever 
since that period. The Moultons of the last three or four 
generations have added large stocks of gold and silver watches 
and repaired the same, but have not engaged in their manu- 
facture. 

The genealogy of the Moulton silver and goldsmiths is as 
follows : 

1. William, emigrant. 

2. William. The founder of the silversmith work about 

1690. 

3. Joseph. 

4. William. 

5. Joseph. 

6. William. 

7. Joseph. 

8. William, who continues the business. 

Mr. Towle informed the writer that many a time when he 
worked with the Moultons the old silver knee buckles made 
by their ancestors had been brought to their store for sale. 
They were relics of a vanished age ; the fashion of wearing 
them had passed away, and they were bought as old silver 
and melted up. Had they been spared till now, they would 



332 MOULTON ANNALS. 

have brought their weight in gold, for the work of the ancient 
Moulton silversmiths is in great demand now, as a souvenir 
of colonial times. Many important establishments have grown 
out of this colonial plant, notably the Moulton goldsmith 
located in Portland, but none so extensive as the one we have 
mentioned. 

The shop of William Moulton has disappeared, but a trace 
of its existence is legibly written on the green sod of the river 
banks near Moulton Hill. This old homestead crumbled away, 
but the memory of the youthful lovers, William and Abby 
Webster, still lingers in the sweet valley where the house 
stood. Here soft summer breezes blew and the Indian servant 
"Dinah" crooned songs of the forest to the many babes born 
to them. 

Not far off is -the site of the little church built by 
William and fifteen other pioneers. It was a humble building 
dedicated to God's worship, yet very costly to them in the 
days when all our ancestors ate the bread of poverty. Costly, 
too, it was in a struggle to get the great and general court to 
legalize it for worship. 

Here was made the most ancient record of Newbury. So 
quaint and old the church book ! The scribe, vainly striving 
to spell out the barbarous name of the only Indian woman of 
its membership, scratched it over with black marks and wrote 
after it "Dinah, Indian, Servant to William Moulton, joined 
1698." I regard this endorsement of the religion of William 
Moulton in its acceptance by the dusky woman of the forest 
from his example, as a tribute to his conduct more pensively 
beautiful than any written eulogy. 

"Dinah" was the only Indian woman whose name I can 
find on the books of the ancient churches of the Merrimac 
Valley. And the old house came down ! I took a timber, 
blackened and decayed by time, but, like its founder, sound at 
the core, and cut it into boards. These smoothed and wrought 
into a beautiful table served me well as an altar of dreams. 
So easy is it for the spirit to take its flight into the far past, 



MOULTON SILVERSMITHS. 333 

leaning upon this holy relic, to live with our blessed ancestors 
in their struggle to form a good and noble society in the ap- 
palling solitudes of America. 

Peradventure, their serene souls behold above their old bat- 
tlefields the splendors of the forty-four stars, enlightening the 
great continent !

REV. AVERY MOULTON. 

(The late Albanus Avery Moulton, president of Rio Grande 
College, wrote that his grandfather, Rev. Avery Moulton, moved 
to Canada from Gilmanton, N. H., and that the father of Avery 
was Joseph Moulton.) 

From Eistory of Stanstead County, Canada. 

In I804, Elder Avery Moulton received license, and was 
ordained in 1806. This year the old log meeting house was 
built, Wm. Moulton, Avery Moulton, and others sustaining 
the expense. Wm. Moulton was licensed to preach about this 
time. The old log meeting house was about 30 by 25 ft., built 
of unhewn logs with one window on each of the three sides, 
a stone back, and stick chimney and door on the other side. 
Total probable expense $75.00. 

In 181 1 and 12, the church had two revivals under Elder 
Avery Moulton and Robinson Smith, it extended to the church 
in Hatley. In 1823 the Wheelock, Vt., quarterly meeting had 
a revival, among its fruit were Abial, Thomas P. and Albanus 
K., sons of Elder Avery Moulton and several of his daughters. 

The Elder Abial Moulton was installed Pastor of the 1st 
F. W. Baptist church of Stanstead July 22, 1834. It was dur- 
ing his incumbency that the Act, authorizing the ministers

of the F. W. Baptist churches to officiate at marriages and

Stanstead F. W. Baptist Church enjoyed a revival and 36 were 
added to its number. This revival was followed by another 
in 1840 and 41. Among the F. W. Baptist churches which 
remained faithful rejecting the doctrine of the second advent, 
was the church of Elder Abial Moulton. In 1848 the F. W. 
Baptists and Wesleyan Methodists united in building a Union 
meeting house. This house was built from the materials of the 
old Union House erected in 1816. ,

336 MOULTON ANNALS. 

From "Morning Star." 

On the morning of Nov. 16, after a protracted sickness, the 
Rev. Abial Moulton of Stanstead, P. Q., departed this life, 
aged 87 yrs. and 5 months. The subject of this notice was 
born in Gilmanton, N. H., and when two years of age, his 
father moved to Sanstead. His father, the Rev. Avery Moul- 
ton, with himself and two brothers, Rev. T. P. and A. K. 
Moulton, were prominent in the early history of F. Baptists in 
this part of the province. In 1820 he married Miss Fanny 
Wallingford, which relation was sustained with honor and 
fidelity until death, a period of more than 65 years. He was 
blessed with an interesting family, consisting of four sons and 
six daughters, eight of whom are now living. When married, 
he commenced on a new farm, living in a log cabin; but, by 
industry, and the blessing of God, in a few years he had fruitful 
fields and a comfortable home. This was his home until called 
to exchange his earthly for a heavenly country. There were 
seasons in early life when he was exercised with strong re- 
ligious impressions ; but he did not fully and unreservedly 
begin the Christian life until twenty-five years of age. In two 
years from that time he commenced the work of ministry, and 
continued until called to go up higher. In 1828 he received 
ordination at the first session of the Stanstead Q. Meeting. 
His pastorate of the Stanstead Church was more than fifty 
years, being installed 51 years ago. 

During his ministry he did not travel as extensively as 
some, but was very successful in promoting revivals, and 
gathering churches. Some of the most extensive revivals 
known in the Eastern Township were witnessed under his 
labors. His record shows in one instance of baptizing 100 
converts in a few weeks as the result of a precious revival in 
Hatley. 

As a brief summary of his labors, he organized fifteen 
churches, and assisted in organizing several others. He ad- 
ministered the ordinance of baptism to more than 1,000 per- 
sons, solemnized 400 marriages, and attended more than 500 
funerals. But those among whom he has preached the Gospel

and served in his official capacity will see his face no more. 
He was a man of remarkable energy and perseverance. In 
whatever he engaged, if success was among the possibilities, 
he was sure to win. But few of our ministers have endured 
greater hardships or sacrificed more to preach Christ than our 
dear brother. He was ready in season and out of season for 
every good work, regardless of storms, privations or opposi- 
tions of foes. He was one of the first to espouse the temper- 
ance cause in that part of the country, and lived to see the 
principles of total abstinence prevail. He was a true friend 
and firm supporter of missions and education. As a Christian, 
our brother was humble and devout; as a minister, in deport- 
ment unassuming and exemplary; and in his public ministra- 
tions, plain, direct, and fearless. He was long spared to bless 
his family, the world, and the church with his godly example, 
pious instructions, fervent prayers and faithful ministrations. 

Hatley. 
Rev. Abial Moulton preached often in this town. 

Barriston. 

Elder Abial Moulton labored in the church here. In 1835 
a revival took place. In this revival, Abila Moulton and T. P. 
Moulton were prominent laborers. 

In 1842, a small church of il members was formed by Rev. 
Abial Moulton. In 1854 they took the name of "Coaticook 
Church," and were supplied by Rev. A. Moulton and others. 
June 27, 1855, the Rev. Thomas P. Moulton was installed Pas- 
tor. The following year a neat edifice was erected, expense 
of $2,300. This church is in the village of "Coaticook."

years one of the Justices of the District, which position he re- 
signed in 1877, and established himself in the practice of his 
profession ; and during the intervening years has enjoyed a 
large and remunerative practice. He is thoroughly well read, 
and is known throughout the city and District as an impressive 
and ready speaker, with great command of language. He gives 
the closest and most faithful attention to the interests of his 
clients, and they deservedly place the highest and most implicit 
reliance in both his honor and abilities. He is engaged in a 
general law business, practising before the District Courts 
and Courts of Claims, the Supreme Court of the United States, 



344 MOULTON ANNALS. 

and the Executive Departments of the Government. He gives 
special attention to the law and equity of practice, and to 
trial in the Supreme Court and courts of final appeal. He is 
considered authority upon all questions of practice and State 
and National law. He has compiled the District laws for two 
of the leading national digests, and other works. He was born 
in the State of Vermont, but has resided for over twenty years 
in the City of Washington. He served in the Union Army 
during the war, and held a commission as Lieutenant Colonel 
in one of the District military organiations. He is recognized 
as a leader in all moral, Christian and reformatory works, 
having made more public addresses upon the subject of tem- 
perance, Sunday school, and the church, probably than any 
other citizen of the District. He is highly respected and es- 
teemed in Washington's best social and professional circles, 
and is a welcome visitor in the houses of the leading men of 
the nation."

A letter received a short time since from the Secretary of 
the State of Rhode Island stated that the Revolutionary Mus- 
ter Rolls were not in a condition to furnish certificates of ser- 
vice. An index was at that time being prepared, however, and 
very likely before the publication of this volume will be ready 
for examination. , 

BATTLE OF LEXINGTON. 

An interesting document pertaining to the battle of Lex- 
ington : 

Charles H. Walcott, Esq., chairman of a committee con- 
nected with the centennial anniversary of the battle of Lexing- 
ton, celebrated in that town April 19. I875, concluded a report 
by reading the following curious document recently discovered 
by him in the State House archives, and never before printed 
or referred to by any historical writer: 

"To the Honorable General Court of the Province the 
Massachusetts Bay in New England, in their present session 
at Watertown. The Petition of Martha Moulton, of Concord, 
in sd. Province Widow Woman Humbly Sheweth 

That on the 19th Day of April 1775, In the forenoon. The 
town of Concord, wherein I dwell, was beset with an army of 
Regulars, who in a Hostile manner enter'd the Town, and 
Draw'd up in a Form before the Door of the house where I 
live, and there they continu'd on the Green feeding their horses 
within five feet of the Door, — and about 50 or 60 of them was

in and out the house, calling for water and what they wanted, 
for about three hours. At the same time all our near neighbors 
In the greatest Consternation were Drawn off to places far 
from the thickest part of the Town, where I live, and had 
taken with them their Families and what of their effects they 
cou'd carry — some to a neighboring wood and others to remote 
house for security. Your Petitioner being left to the mercy 
of six or seven hundred armed men and no person near but 
an old man of 85 years & myself 71 years old & both very 
Infirm — It may easily be Imagin'd what a sad condition yr 
Petitr must be in. Under these circumstances yr Petitr Com- 
mitted herself, more Especially to the Divine protection and 
was very remarkably kept with so much Fortitude of mind, 
as to wait on them as they call'd with water & what we had — 
Chairs for Major Pitcairn & 4 or 5 more officers who sat at 
the Door Viewing the men. At length yr Petitr had, by de- 
grees cultivated so much favor as to talk a little with them — 
when all on a sudden They had set fire to the Great-Gun Car- 
riage Just by the house and while they were in flames yr Petitr 
saw smoke arise out of the Town house, higher than the Ridge 
of the house. Then yr Petitr did put her life, as it were in 
her hand and ventur'd to beg of the officers to send some of 
their men to put out the fire, but they took no notice, only 
sneer'd. Yr Petitr seeing the Town house on fire, and must in 
a few minutes be past recovery Did yet venture to Expostu- 
late with the officers Just by her as she stood with a pail of 
Water in her hand Begging of them to send it — when they 
only said O mother we won't do you any harm Dont be con- 
sern'd mother & such like talk. The home still burning and 
knowing that all the Row of 4 or 5 houses as well as the 
School-house was in certain danger yr Petitr (not knowing 
but she might provoke them with incessant Pleading — yet 
ventur'd to put as much strength to her arguments as an Im- 
portunate widow could think of — And so yr Petitr can safely 
say that under Divine Providence she was an Instrument of 
saving the Court house & how many more is not certain, from 
being consum'd — with a great deal of valuable furniture — and

at the great Risque of her life, at last by one pail of water after 
another they sent & Did extinguish the fire. And now may 
it please the Hon'd Court as several People of note in the 
Town have advis'd yr Petitr Thus to inform the public of what 
she had done — and as no notice has been taken of her for the 
same — she Begs Leave to Lay this her Case before your hon- 
ors, and to Let this honor'd Court also know that yr Petitr 
is not only so Old as to be not able to earn wherewith to sup- 
port herself — is very poor and shall think her highly honor'd 
in the Favorable Notice of this honor'd Court. As what yr 
Petitr had done was of a Public as well as a private Good and 
as yr honors are in a Public Capacity yr Petitr begs that it 
may not be taken ill in this way to ask in the most humble 
manner something — as a Fatherly Bounty — such as to your 
great wisdom and Compassion shall seem meet and your Peti- 
tioner, as in Duty bound For the peace and prosperity of this 
our American Iseral, shall ever pray. 

Martha Moulton." 
Concord. Feb. 4, 1776. 

The committee to whom the petition was referred reported 
the following resolve, but the report was, for some reason, not 
accepted : 

"Resolved, that there be paid out of the Public Treasury 
to James Barrat Esqr. the sum of three pounds for the use of 
Martha Moulton the Petitioner for her good service in so 
boldly & successfully (sic) preventing the enemy from Burn- 
ing the Town House in Concord as set forth in the Petition." 



CHAPTER XVI. 

PLACES NAMED MOULTON. 

There are in the United States several towns and villages 
by the name of Moulton. 

Among these the town of Moultonborough, or Moulton- 
boro, Carroll County, New Hampshire, is the most attractive 
as a summer resort. It is visited by people from all parts of 
the country for its pure air, magnificent forests and grand 
mountain scenery. The placid waters of Lake Winnepesaukee, 
on the south, reflect the lofty heights of the Ossipee Mountains 
that rise on the north and east. Fine farms, fringed by sweet 
maples and rippling brooks; pleasant white houses, with their 
green blinds, flocks and herds, here and there a mill or a 
schoolhouse, dot the landscape and make a ride from the cen- 
tral village delightful. 

Good hotels and boarding houses, good stores, horses, post- 
office and hosts contribute to render one's stay in this cool 
northern town a happy summer experience. 

It was among these mountains that General John Moulton 
came at the close of the Revolutionary War and took posses- 
sion of his vast landed estates in this region. 

The grant he had received through Governor Wentworth 
and otherwise made him lord of innumerable tracts of wild 
land, well timbered, and much of it in good condition for culti- 
vation after the timber was removed. 

Several towns beside Moultonboro have been incorporated 
from these possessions. 

This town is the home of several families bearing the name 
of Moulton, lineal descendants of the doughty General Jonathan, 
whose biography appears in a previous chapter. 

Xot far from Moultonborough, N. H., and in the same county, 



402 MOULTON ANNALS. 

within tMe town of Ossipee, lies the pretty village of Moulton- 
ville. This place was settled by John Moulton, born in 1796, in 
Kennebunk, Me. [See No. 242.] 

The business which John Moulton established in Moulton- 
ville was bedstead making. Finding a good waterpower here, 
he erected a mill and put in machinery to produce the old-fash- 
ioned, high-posted bedsteads. Much of this machinery was of his 
own invention. The bedstead of that day comprised four posts 
and four heavy rails each, with a broad headboard and footboard, 
the rails laced together by bed cords interwoven and drawn 
taught with a bed wrench. These heavy goods were loaded upon 
teams, some of which Mr. Moulton himself drove forty miles 
and on one occasion seventy miles, to a market. After many 
years railroads came nearer, and at last, within twenty years, a 
railroad passed through the village, which had grown from his 
industry. The church, the schoolhouse, the lecture room, not to 
mention the inevitable store, blacksmith shop and photographic 
studio, followed in time, and when the worthy and interesting 
veteran, John Moulton, was succeeded by his son, Lorenzo, a 
very large business grew up. This was carried on with great 
success till an early death overtook the son. Both were lamented 
by all their townsmen, and many a family missed the aid which 
this large business had given them. 

A young son of Lorenzo, of the third generation here, sur- 
vived, but he was not old enough to succeed to the business in 
full. Other parties took an interest with him and to some extent 
the manufacture still goes on. The "Cottage bedstead" long since 
took the place of the old high-posted affair. The close-grained 
beech and maple and the birch tree still grow on the hillside in 
place of their fallen ancestors, and supply the necessary material. 
This village is near the center, while directly north is West Os- 
sipee, the spot where the poet, Whittier, loved to linger through 
the balmy summers. "Bear River," familiar to us in his songs, 
roars out a hoarse melody and mighty Crocoroa marshalls his 
ranks of lesser mountains as a wall to guard the village of Moul- 
tonville from the fierce north winds of the White Hills. The early 
experiences of the founder of this village were romantic and 



PLACES NAMED MOULTON. 403 

would make a readable book. In his youth he taught school in 
the pioneer settlements of the far east. Once he looked out upon 
Penobscot, flowing by his school-house door, and beheld an In- 
dian with his upset canoe swimming for the shore. As Mr. Moul- 
ton beckoned to him he came up, dripping, and accepted some 
strings and other materials with which to mend the torn birch 
bark of his canoe. Repairs completed, he vanished up the stream. 
Forty years passed by. There was a celebration in Boston, and 
John Moulton, grown old and dignified, was one of the honored 
guests upon the platform. A party of Penobscot Indians were in 
attendance, one of whom struggled up to the platform and greeted 
Mr. Moulton with thanks for his help, forty years before, in mend- 
ing his boat. 

A typical Moulton was this John : a God-fearing man, of cour- 
age, fortitude and industry. More than that, he was a man of 
ideas. Let this village ever reverence the good name bestowed 
upon it by its founder. 

The town of Moulton, Iowa, was named by its citizens for 
Jonathan B. Moulton of St. Louis, he being the civil engineer 
who laid out the railroad through this town. 

Appleton's Encyclopedia tells us that Moulton has good 
schools and that its chief occupation is stock-raising. Surely 
this village cannot fail to prosper, if it partakes of the high char- 
acter of him for whom it was named. 

Moulton, Texas, we find upon the map, but are unable to 
elicit any information regarding the town. 

The same is true of Moulton, Franklin Co., N. C. 

A village with a population of several hundred and bearing 
the name of Moulton exists in Rose township, Shelby Co., Illi- 
nois. There is likewise a post-office, Moulton, in Missouri. 

Moulton, Alabama, was laid out in 1818. It was named after 
a U. S. army officer, by the name of C. H. Moulton, who died 
and was buried in the town limits. There is no record of his 
having any family. Mr. Moulton died long before most of the 
present citizens of Moulton were born, and there are none of that 
name now living in that part of the country. The village has 
about five hundred inhabitants, half of whom are colored. 



404 MOULTON ANNALS. 

The village of Moultonville, in Newburyport, Massachusetts, 
was named for Capt. Henry W. Moulton of that city, a biographi- 
cal sketch of whom appears in a previous chapter. 

This village was once the center of several thriving industries, 
carriage manufacturing being the most prominent. All the streets 
of Moultonville were laid out and presented to the city by Mr. 
Moulton. The houses and factories were built by him and for 
some time prosperity smiled upon this settlement, but with the 
financial panic of 1872 the business died out, the factories were 
abandoned, and the village became the quiet hamlet which it 
remains to this day. 

In Central India there is a railroad center of importance put 
down on some maps as "Moulton," upon other maps it appears 
as Mooltan. 

Thinking that it might have been founded by some English 
settler, inquiry was instituted, resulting in the discoverv that 
it was an old Indian city, founded nearly one thousand years ago, 
with its sombre temples and tiled-roofed buildings and that "Mool- 
tann" was its Indian name. 

Though dealing especially with places of our name in the 
United States, it seems not inappropriate to mention the town of 
Moulton, in Lincolnshire, England, occupied for so many gen- 
erations by the Norman lords who were our ancestors. 

According to the best authorities, Moulton began from a 

■late waste, to rise into something like a village. : 
1 100, under the direction of Thomas de Moulton of Egremont 
and Lord of Holbeach. This nobleman served the office of high 
sheriff of the county of Lincoln from 1106 to 1100. 

He resided at Moulton, in a mansion which is now down, 
but which formerly stood in what is called Hall grounds, belong- 
ing to Lord Eardley. The village has evidently decreased in 
importance, since the Moulton peerage became extinct. In 182 1 
it contained 324 houses and 1629 inhabitant-. 

The ancient church, "All Saints," at Moulton is quite cele- 
brated as a specimen of early Norman architecture. The strik- 
ing feature of the church is its well-proportioned tower and spire, 
which in this respect are unsurpassed by any in the kingdom.

PLACES NAMED MOULTON. 405 

Various Roman antiquities have been found near Moulton, 
which fact is not surprising when we realize the early settle- 
ment of the village. 

In Allen's "History of Lincolnshire" we read the town of 
Moulton probably took its name from a mill in the vicinity. 

Theories with regard to the origin of the name have already 
been discussed in the first chapter of this volume, and the reader 
is at liberty to further pursue for himself investigation along this 
line. 

We learn from Farrar's "Church Heraldry" that there were 
formerly two parishes of Moulton in Norfolk County, called 
Mouton and Great Moulton. It is said that there are five par- 
ishes of that name in England, besides the township in Lincoln. 
Five of the Moulton emigrants of New England are known to 
have come from Norfolk County, anl it is not improbable that 
they inhabited one of these parishes. 

MOULTON HILL. 

There is more than one delightful spot known as Moulton 
Hill. In the town of Monson, in the extreme south of Worcester 
County, Massachusetts, is a symmetrical hill, rising by a com- 
fortable ascent till its broad top spreads out into the green fields 
of a beautiful farm. Here was built, in 1763, a substantial house, 
which was regarded as a mansion at that period. It was erected 
by Jesse Moulton, a descendant of Robert of Salem, and ancestor 
of the Monson Moultons. The old house still stands; it is in a 
good state of preservation and has won a good report by its 
service in housing several generations of excellent people by the 
name of Moulton. Further reference to this branch of the family 
will be found in Chapter . 

In Lyman, N. H., and in Wenham, Mass., are hills bearing 
the name of Moulton. Moulton Hill, Newburyport, Mass., has 
been the home of eight generations of Moultons, William 2nd 
having built his house at the foot of the hill where, more than 
two hundred years later, his descendants were living. 

In 1866 Capt. Henry W. Moulton of Newburyport came into 



406 MOULTON ANNALS. 

possession of this estate, which already for six generations had 
been held by different branches of the Moulton family. Here 
he erected the noble and picturesque building- which, from its 
Gothic architecture, became known for miles around as "Moul- 
tan Castle." Sir Edw. Thornton, the British minister, passed 
four summers here with his family and retinue of servants, dur- 
ing Mr. Moulton's absence in Idaho, where he served as U. S. 
Marshal. The view from the summit of the hill is very beau- 
tiful and extensive, including at least fourteen different towns 
and villages. No lovelier prospect can be found in all New 
England and, indeed, many who have traveled extensively in both 
the old and the new world, claim never to have seen a landscape 
more beautiful. Here the author of this volume passed many 
happy hours, enjoying the loveliness of nature and dreaming of 
the vanished Moultons who had lived and moved on this same 
spot in other days. Here, at the very summit of the house, in 
a lofty chamber called facetiously "the high room," the present 
volume of "Moulton Annals" sprang into being. Surrounded 
by his beloved books and the portraits of the friends he held 
most dear, Mr. Moulton delighted to occupy his leisure hours, 
which were all too rare, in literary pursuits, no subject being 
more congenial than his lineage. 

History repeats itself, and like the last Sir Thomas of Gils- 
land, Mr. Moulton left no son to assume his name and estate. 
A few months previous to the death of Mr. Moulton, in 1896, 
Moulton Hill passed out of the family.

CHAPTER XVII. 

THE MOULTONS IN LITERATURE. 

It was the intention of the author of this volume to devote 
a chapter to the subject indicated by the headline, but the editor 
has deemed it unwise to delay the publication of the work for 
this purpose, as a considerable amount of research would be neces- 
sary in order to suitably present the subject. 

No doubt many of our name have attained more or less dis- 
tinction in the field of literature. The names of a few of these 
are well known to the writer. 

Elizabeth Barrett Browning, called by many the greatest 
woman poet of the century, was a Moulton by birth, her father 
being Edward Barrett Moulton, who altered his sirname in ac- 
cordance with the provision of his grandfather's will, which left 
him in possession of the Barrett estates. We may justly be proud 
of this bright, particular star in the literary horizon of our family. 

Louise Chandler Moulton, of course, is a Chandler by birth, 
and therefore has no place in this history. Her husband, Wm. U. 
Moulton, however, was a journalist of note, for many years the 
editor of "The True Flag" in Boston, and an accomplished lit- 
erary critic. 

Joseph W. Moulton of New York achieved great prominence 
as a historical writer, and was a scholarly, cultivated gentleman. 
He is mentioned in Chapter VIII., among the descendants of 
Robert. We find the following biography in the Troy, N. Y., 
Budget : Joseph W. Moulton, historian, born in Stafford 
Springs, Conn., in June, 1789, died in Roslyn, L. I., April 20, 
1875. His parents removed to Troy, N. Y., when he was six 
years old. He studied law in the same office with Wm. L. 
Marcy, Martin Van Buren and Chancellor Walsworth. After 
his admission to the bar he settled in Buffalo, N. Y. He sub- 



408 MOULTON ANNALS. 

sequently removed to New York city, and finally retired to 
Roslyn, where he devoted himself entirely to antiquarian and 
legal researches. He published, with John V. N. Yates, "A 
History of the State of New York," treating merely of the 
earlier period of its history (New York, i824-'6) ; "Chancery 
Practice of New York" (3 vols., i829~'32) ; "View of the City 
of New Orange as It Was in 1673" (1849) ; and an annotated 
edition of John F. Mitford's "Treatise on Pleadings in the 
Court of Chancery" (1849). 

C. W. Moulton, of the firm "Moulton, Wenborne & Co.," 
Buffalo, was for many years editor of a unique little mgazine 
called "Queries," and also "The Magazine of Poetry," which 
has been very influential in acquainting American readers with 
our less prominent poets. He is himself a very successful verse 
maker. 

Susan W. Moulton of Newburyport, daughter of Henry W. 
and therefore descendent of William, gave great pleasure to her- 
self and her friends by her graceful verses and bright, interest- 
ing stories. Her book, "Hill Rest," a religious novel, was written 
at the age of twenty-two, and proved a very successful venture. 
Her poems and stories were published in the Youth's Companion, 
Cottage Hearth and Valley Visitor. Those who were judges 
spoke of her as possessing a rare poetic instinct, and we who 
loved her do not doubt that the rich promise of her youth would 
have been amply fulfilled had the Angel of Death but stayed his 
hand. 

Mrs. Bina Moulton Wyman, mentioned in Chapter VIII., 
among the descendants of Robert, has shown much talent and 
fluency with her pen. 

What an interesting library might be collected from the desks 
of our own family ! 



CHAPTER XVIII. 

MOULTON OF FOUR-SCORE. 

Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. 5, 1888. 
Mr. Henry W. Moulton : 

Dear Sir : — I send you what I recall from memory and actual 
seeing, imperfect in writing, spelling and order. If you find a 
few grains of wheat that will aid you in your design, I shall be 
satisfied. 

I was born January 9, 1807; have seen some cold winters and 
some warm summers. Was born in Trenton, Oneida Co., New 
York, ten miles north of Utica. 

Respectfully yours, 

Chloe C. Greene Moulton. 

Indianapolis, July 21, 1884. 

Dear Sir: — My son, R. J. Moulton, had a letter from you, 
dated May 14, which I fully decided to answer at once, as he 
knew very little of what you wished. I am the only one left to 
tell the tale. Please excuse repetition and mistakes. I must 
take my story from the Scotch line as I have often heard it re- 
peated. 

In the early part of seventeen hundred the King of England 
gave a grant of land to a Scotch minister, Presbyterian, to settle 
in Nova Scotia and form a colony there as promoter and leader. 
I do not know his name, but I think it was ^Stephen Moulton. 
He .was the father of Col. Stephen Moulton of Revolutionary 
times, who lived in Stafford, Conn., was sick, took a very active 
part in the contest, was a colonel, furnished three sons and sup- 
plies for the army. Those sons were taken prisoners — Salmon, 



*Ebenezer was the name of the father of Col. Stephen. See 
page 70, E. A. C. 



4IO MOULTON ANNALS. 

Stephen and Howard Moulton. They were confined in a prison 
ship in New York. I think Col. Moulton was taken prisoner and 
when he was released on exchange caused his sons to be set at 
liberty. 

Col. Moulton was rich when discharged. He was paid in 
continental scrip. After he came home he sent a man to Herki- 
mer Co., N. Y., to buy land from what was then called Royal 
Grant. The agent was to pay $1.00 per acre. It had advanced 
twenty-five cents per acre (Poor, honest man!) He went back 
very soon. The scrip was good for naught. Was left poor. He 
came back to Floyd, Oneida Co., N. Y., where most of his sons 
lived, his wife having died. He was a college-bred man, very 
much of a gentleman, as I have been told. He was short and 
thick set. I can't tell the color of his eyes or hair. He had been 
or lived in affluence. It proved very humiliating to a manly man 
to be poor, dependent on his children or any one else after doing 
what he had for his country and posterity. (Can't give dates as 
I would like, of birth or death, but it is recorded. If I obtain 
them I will let you know hereafter.) 

Col. Moulton lived until the officers were about to be pen- 
sioned. The bill was expected to be sanctioned that winter by 
the government. 

He and a friend took a Utica newspaper, together. It was 
about twelve inches square. His grandson, Josiah, was going 
to the wood for wood. He hopped on and held on by a stake. 
(He was very active.) He rode to the neighbor's, got the paper 
and walked home — a quarter of a mile. He was at his son Ben- 
jamin's, where he always had a warm welcome. The son and 
wife were noble specimens of humanity. The Colonel always 
had his arm chair and little table at one side of the fire-place. The 
wife, Sarah, was about her work. He was reading about the 
pensions. She asked him a question. He did not answer. She 
looked and he was dead. It was not known whether it was the 
excitement of what he read that caused it. It was apoplexy. 

He was buried at Floyd Corners, Oneida Co., nearly opposite 
the house he died in. He was one of the first that was buried 
in that cemetery. He was carried on a bier by his neighbors. 



MOULTON OF FOUR-SCORE. 41 1 

The house is still standing-. A two-storied, gambrel-roofed 
house, owned by his son, Benjamin, has been built, too, and im- 
proved. It is still owned by the heirs of Linus Moulton, a nephew 
of Ben ; rented hers in New York city. I think Col. Moulton 
must have died about 1812. History can tell that. History speaks 
of him, but not as it should, knowing what he did for his country. 

The Moultons were a manly race, high-toned, with much 
self-esteem. They liked to seek and liked to carry the purse. 
They were very hospitable ; always had a place for the stranger. 
They showed lover of offspring, love of country, hatred of the 
English. Were much inclined to military renown. They liked 
praise, but if they did not get it the world was no wiser. 

Will now turn to the grandchildren — the children of Col. 
Moulton. Salmon Moulton, born in Stafford, Conn. He was a 
college-bred man, a very devout Methodist, a class leader for 
years. Lived to over ninety years of age. He was rather small 
of stature, with sandy complexion. (This tribe I knew for over 
forty years.) He was a farmer, well-to-do. His father gave 
him a liberal education and a farm. Being the eldest, he could 
do so at that time. Salmon married Susan Johnson of Conn., 
noted for gift of prayer. They had six sons and one daughter. 

Harry, the eldest, married a cousin, Lucretia Moulton. They 
had three sons and one daughter. All but one died pretty young. 
He lived in Floyd, near the old homestead. 

Aurora Moulton was married in Conn. Had two sons and one 
daughter. 

Horace lives in Berlin, Wis., He is a money loaner, well off 
and a bachelor. 

Cyrus, his brother, lives in Turin, Lewis Co., N. Y. He deals 
in iron ; is well-to-do ; has a wife and two children. Mrs. Kiggs, 
a sister, lives in Turin. Her husband, an iron merchant, is said 
to be very wealthy. 

Stephen Moulton was in the prison in New York ; also Salmon. 
Both deserved pensions in time. Stephen, farmer on Floyd Hill, 
had two sons and three daughters. 

Jesse, farmer, played on the violin, taught his children fine 



412 MOULTON ANNALS. 

manners and to dance. He loved his friends, was very hospitable, 
had a most excellent wife from Albany, N. Y. One daughter, 
Julia, married a Bell. She lives in Vernon, Oneida Co., New 
York. 

His son, Lewis, an artist, lived in Rome, N. Y He is dead.. 
The other sons were in merchandise. I don't know where, if 
living. 

Asa, Stephen's son, was very queer. He made lots of fun 
for the tribe. I will not try to delineate him. 

Two of the daughters raised nice families. Polly, the eldest, 
had no children. I think that branch are nearly all dead. If I 
could see you, would relate some funny things which are of no 
interest now. (I lived forty years among them; was rather a 
pet with all. I think they esteemed me as much as they ought.) 

To go back, Stephen had two elder sons, Abel and Israel, 
wealthy men — called by flic tribe "Little" and "I They had 

large families, scattered now. 

Howard Moulton, son of old Col. Moulton, lived in Troy, N. 
Y. He was in the Revolution. He had three children, a son 
and two daughters. 

Joseph, a lawyer, was a partner of Daniel Webster in N. Y. 
The eldest daughter married Gen. Wool of Troy N. Y. He was 
superior in intellect; was to have aided her husband in advance- 
ment. They had no children. 

The other daughter married a Griswold. They lived in Troy. 
Were said to be always intimately connected with the Wools. 
The property is all in the Griswold name. 

On the General Wool place was a tree (I can't give the his- 
tory") which has lately fallen. Troy people can do so. 

Xext are Joseph and Benjamin, twins. Ben., the father of 
my husband, was born in Conn. He married Sarah Johnson. 
They had ten children. 

John Moulton, the eldest, lived at Clarence, near Buffalo, N. 
Y. They had two sons. One was crippled from birth. He 
still lives at the old homestead. The father was a mechanic and 
farmer. He married Betsey Boman of Lancaster, Tenn. They 
accumulated a fine property. The place was called Bomansville. 



MOULTON OF FOUR-SCORE. 413 

The mother and father died not long ago. Both were very 
worthy people. 

James, the youngest, lives at Big Stone, Minnesota, bordering 
on Dakota. He is a farmer, a reliable man. Had six daughters. 
Most of them live at Bomansville or near. 

Mary Moulton Knighton lives at Bomansville. She owns the 
mill property. I cannot give the names of all. It was a very 
respectable, worthy family. 

Eleanor, the eldest daughter, was born in Floyd, N. Y. She 
went to Wiliamsville. She married John Roberts, a merchant. 
They had three daughters. 

Sal Maria was very accomplished and fine looking; would be 
noticed in a crowd. She died at twenty-four. 

Marion, the second, traveled extensively in South America. 
She married William Wakeman of Kentucky, a cousin of the 
Wakeman in the New York post office. He went to the Rubber 
field on the Amazon. She lives in or near Utica. She has had 
a varied life. She is still a very intelligent woman. She com- 
menced a book of travels. 

Georgiana died in infancy. 

Eleanor was the mother of daughters. All had dark hair. 
She was a very superior woman in looks and personal appear- 
ance. At that time I never saw a lady that could so inverse 
with gentlemen of high station. She seemed at home on all sub- 
jects. She was a very devout Methodist, and in fact a very su- 
perior woman. She died at the same time as Sal Maria cf an 
epidemic called "Black Tongue" that prevailed. It was the same 
winter that malaria flourished in New York. I can't give dates. 

Arthur H. Moulton, the son of Ben., was born at Greenbush, 

Co., New York. He lived in Floyd up to manhood. 

In August, 1822, he went to Williamsville, New York, where he 
resided until his death. He had red hair. He married Esther 
Hyde of Lebanon Conn., by whom he had four children ; but one 
is living. A. H. Moulton, Jr., of Acron, N. Y., the father, died 
four years since, aged eighty-six. He lived more than sixty years 
at Williamsville as carpenter and merchant. He was a very 
devoted disciple and strictly honorable all his life. He was called

Deacon in the family. He was three times married. The last wife 

survived him. She was a Mrs. Taylor. If living she may be in 
Chicago with an adopted son. I cannot call his name.

grew to twenty-two years, then married Chloe C. Greene of Tren- 
ton. Oneida Co., October n. 1827. Floyd and Trenton were ad- 
joining towns. They lived at Holland Fatten for several years. 
They were married at Floyd. He was a carriage maker; very 
mechanical. He could go to the woods, cut, build and finish a 
house, even to paint and paper. He was full six feet, very erect, 
with dark hair and eyes and fine features; very fine ill appear- 
ance. He was a manly man. The Moultons were strong Demo- 
crats. At a certain time he became Republican and disgusted the 
old heads. He had to fight alum. He maintained his integrity 
to the day of hi> death. He was l>. .rn December 2, [804; died 
August 13, 1880, of heart d He was partial to military 

drills. He raised an Independent Rifle Co. and was made Briga-

since died at twenty-seven. All were correct and intelligent. All 
but one live in the same village. 

.W'Xt, our daughter Ellen married L. Hinkston May 2d, 1840.

ried. 

The other daughter died in infancy. 

Ellen H. Moulton, the mother of these, was born in Floyd, 
June 22. She died January 3, 1880, of spinal disease. She ex- 
celled in goodness. 

R. J. Moulton, our second son, was born February 13, 1836. 
He lives in Indianapolis and writes in the Western Union Tele- 
graph Company. He has for sixteen years been crippled in the

and lost two teeth. He was in the hospital at Nashville until 
the close of the war. He has dark hair, is tall and corpulent — 
rather fine looking. ITe lives in Indianapolis and is in the Atlantic 
Tea Store. He married Margaret Cooper of Ohio. \ T o chil- 
dren. 

Powers < i. Moulton, the eldest (already mentioned) was in 
the war. but not wounded. 

Benton Moulton died in infancy. 

Joseph Moulton was born in Stafford, Conn. He married 
a Miss Johnson of the same state. They had four sons and six 
daughters. I did not know much of them, save the eldest, Eliza- 
beth. I knew her intimately. She married John Hawke, by whom 
she had ten children, eight sons and two daughters. The sons 
are all dead. Her daughter. Mrs. Rice, lives at Kankakee, Ills. 
He is engaged in selling goods. Owns a good home. Is very 
favorably known in Kankakee on the north side of the river. 

Elizabeth Moulton Hawke married a second time. She was 



4l6 MOULTON ANNALS. 

known as Mrs. Vaughn. She died in 1886 at the age of eighty- 
six. 

Josiah Moulton, Sr., should have come before Ben. and Jo- 
seph. He was born in Stafford, Conn. Lived in Troy^and Al- 
bany. He married Rebecca Huse of New York. They had two 
children, Charles and Harriet. He had sandy hair, was tall 
and graceful and fascinating in address. He was in the mercan- 
tile business with his brother. Howard, in Troy. He was sheriff 
of Albany Co. He came to Floyd in about 18 15. In the mean- 
time his son, Charles, had grown to manhood and become wealthy. 
He lived in New York many years. He married irene M< t/ 

of French descent. They had several children. The eldest, 
Charles, Sr., married a Miss Greenough of Boston or Harvard. 
She went to Paris and figured much in Empress Eugenie's court. 
She carried dispatches of importance and was a favorite in high 
circles. She was an elegant person, pertaining to beauty and 
accomplishments. Her husband died some years since. She 
marric-d again, 1 think an Italian lord or prince, and has gone 
to his people with her husband. It was published in the American 
newspaper >. 

Clara Moulton, the eldest daughter, married a Mr. Brown 
of New York. In traveling hack and forth on the Atlantic the 
vessel was lost. All on board were lost. Clara, husband and 
child all went down. Charles Moulton, her lath- in Ft 

visiting his mother. When he read the paper it dropped from 
his hand. He said not a word, but started for I'tica, thence to 
\ew York. Such events are registered. You can search. 

The next daughter married a German prince or dignitary. 
Had children, but lived apart. lie, wanting a higher station, 
could not assume it if any of his or his wile's family had been 
on the stage as an actress. His wife's great grandmother had 
been this. It was the German law. I think there is a son and 
daughter, she having married a foreigner. 

Charles Moulton, Sr., lived in Paris many years, then went 
to some famous water place on the coast of Brittany, I think. 
He died there, three years since, more than eighty. His wife 
died a few years previous. He had dark hair like his mothi 



MOULTON OF FOUR-SCORE. 417 

was of medium height. He made money easily; made a great 
deal in New York. His heirs must own property there now. 

Hariet Moulton, only sister of Charles, Sr., came to Floyd 
with parents. Her hair was sandy. She was very fair and grace- 
ful in manners. She was very accomplished. She married Pow- 
ers Greene, who was raised a farmer in Trenton (he was a 
brother of mine). He went into merchandise. They have one 
daughter, Harriet C. Greene. The mother died when the child 
was an infant. She lived with her grandmother until seven years 
old; then she went to Little Falls to live with Dr. Greene, a 
brother of father. She was educated there until twenty-one. The 
father traveled in the South. 1 larrirt came to Illinois about 1850. 
She was with me a year. She married II. M. Hills, a merchant, 
of Waukegan. They had two sons and three daughters. Mr. 
Hills built a fine resilience in Waukegan. lie died at about forty- 
five of consumption. Hi> wife still lives at the homestead with 
daughters, or they with her. The son. Frank P. Hills, graduated 
at Racine, Wis., then went to Harvard, Mass.. and studied a 
time. He had first entered a partnership. He had typhoid and 

I in two weeks, his mother and sister being in Europe. He 

a very promising man of twenty-seven. He was of more 

than common promise and worthy of all that had been done 

him in education. He had made the best of his time. It 
was a very sad blow to his mother and all. 

The mother and si»ter. Rebecca, came home, but alas! What 
could they do? Submit. 

Mrs. Hills inherited property from her father, also from her 
husband. In fact, she is very well off. Her eldest daughter, 
flattie traveled in Europe one year and a half. She is now in 
Waukegan. at home. When Mrs. Hills went to Europe she vis- 
ited her uncle Charles. He had obtained much information rela- 
tive to the Moulton race, which she learned through him, which 
she may communicate to you if you write or visit her. 

Her address is IT. C. Hills, Waukegan, Lake Co., Ills. Fred 

Hills died young. Grace, the youngest is still with her mother. 

v. here is another mistake. Two of Benjamin's I have 

omitted. James Moulton, son of Benjamin, was born in Flovd. 



418 MOULTON ANNALS. 

He had sandy hair, was a very bright boy and very industrious. 
He picked berries to buy school books. When he was eight 
wars old his cousin, Charles Moulton, came to Floyd and took 
a fancy to him. He told his father to send him to .\\-\v York 
and he would procure a place for him. In a year or so he did, 
fitting him out in country home-spun and feeling that they had 
done pretty well, lie was hopeful, feeling that all was right. 
But, alas for human expectations! His cousin thought he would 
do all, so took him to a tailor and had him fitted to a city suit, 
got him a position and he prospered. James afterwards told me 
that he had paid all indebtedness or favors to Charles. 1 le re- 
mained in New York until about eighteen, lie learned the trade 
of merchandise and was a very expert salesman. He came to 
Holland Patten where his parents then lived, lie visited a while, 
then went to Rome, \. Y.. ten miles away as a clerk of dry 
goods. He did well and made friends easily. This was in about 
[829. About this" time came a wonderful revival. He became 

devoted to that, experienced Methodism and came out a bright 

light. At this time he married Hannah WestCOtt, u hose father 

sheriff of Rome. He was appointed missionary to a remnant 

'•r" Oneida Indians. It was woods, then, but afterwards Oneida 
community. 

After a time he went to Turin, Lewes Co., as a merchant. 
He did not succeed well — a boy. yet encumbered with a family. 
He went back to \ew York after a time and succeeded well as 
jobber and importer. He was connected with the best linns in 
Xew York and at one time was worth a hundred or two thousand 
then lost and gained. He bought a house on Twenty-first street, 
then sold it and went to Morrisena. He bought a large space for 
gardening, rose early and did all the work but spading. He 
(1 two "r three crops and kept bees, working like a tailor. 
At the proper time he was down town at business and then home 
at night to work in his garden. He was restless and did not love 
a lazy person. While doing this he raised three sons and four 
daughters, including one pair of twin. 

Sarah married Tom Timson. He had much to do with a 
book publishing house. I can't place it. Timson died a few 



MOULTON OF FOUR-SCORE. 4IO, 

years since. His wife lives at Morrisena, near her fathers resi- 
dence. She has seven sons and daughters and she settles her 
own estate. 

Letitia, the second daughter, married Stoker. His grand- 
father was a Hollander. He came at the first settlement and 
brought timber for his house above Fortieth street. He bought 
a hundred acres. The old house has been torn down and the 
railroad is in its place. Stoker lives near Fortieth street. I do 
not know on what avenue. Letitia has no children. She is re- 
ported rich. 

James was a strong Democrat and Methodist and remained 
so to the last. lie had two sons, not strong men. They died 
there, after speculating, I think. 

Jery, the only son left, is in Xew York. I do not know his 
business or plar 

Jane, the youngest, lives in New York. I cannot tell her hus- 
band's name. 

James Moulton was a very generous, noble man. He did 
many generous acts of kindness to the poor. lie was with us six 
months of his life in Waukegan, Ills. He suffered terribly with 
spinal and Bright's disease. He went back to New York to his 
daughter, Sarah Timson. He died with his children about him, 
fully resigned. 1 [e bad fought the battle of life manfully. He ac- 
quired a classic education after he was a man. He died some 
time in the seventies. He left some property for his children, 
his wife having died some years before. 

Maria Moulton. the youngest, married Hezekiah Mclnltosh 
of Hollandpatten. Xew York. They had ten children, eight sons 
and two daughters. They were brought up on a farm in Tren- 
ton and Steuben, Oneida Co. 

Andrew J. Mcintosh lives in Utica. also Ichabod. They were 
lawyers of repute. Andrew owns, I think, what was "Boggs 
Hotel" and lives there. He married an Albany lady. No chil- 
dren. Ichabod married a Miss Barnum of Utica. They have 
four children. Both brothers owned much real estate. The other 
sons are scattered or dead. 



420 MOULTON ANNALS. 

Sarah married Josiah Brown, a lawyer, of Utica. They now 
live in Hollandpatten. 

The other sister married a Mr. Wells, a fanner, of Tren- 
ton. 

Ebenezer Moulton, the youngest son of old Col. Moulton, was 
born in Stafford. He lived and died in Floyd, lie married a 
Miss Sillsbridge of Verona. They had two sons and two daugh- 
ters. 

Linus Moulton lived in Floyd in the same house his grand- 
father, Col. Moulton, died in. He married < Hive . I cannot 

call the last name. She was a worthy woman. They had one 
son, Germain, and mx daughters. He died at twenty-four, He 
was a good and promising son. He died of consumption. Mary 
Married Asa Clark. They had one child. Emma Clark; lives in 
Xew York city. All are dead but Emma. The other sisters died 
young of consumption. 

Harriet married Arm s tr o ng of Koine, a merchant, none but 
Louise leaving SOUS. She married Thorn of I md. Ohio. 

They had SOUS in I o. 

David Moulton was educated and brought up in Floyd. I It- 
married Huldah Sisers of Steuben. They had four daughl 
He wa> a strong Democrat, self-made and fine looking. He had 
a fine figure, six feet tall. He was well proportioned and com- 
manding. He »i:tst be obeyed in military politics. He was a 
lawyer and went to the legislature at Albany, i le was ele 
sheriff of ' taeida Co. two or three times. H called "I 

.Moulton." He had many friends. Some say his hobby was to 
accumulate wealth, not to build for posterity. He labored in this 
way and was very successful, amassing one or two hundred thou- 
sand. In a weak moment he signed for a shoe tirm in Rochester. 
X. Y. and was ruined. It \seiit through a course of law. Sol 
thing was left him. In the meantime he married again, contrary 
to his daughters' wishes. He died four years since of paral 
at about eighty. He was buried near his home. He was a man 

gerat natural abilities and very strong will power. 

"King David" had four daughters. Julia married Xehemiah 
Sleeper of Massachusetts, a merchant. They had a son, David 



MOULTON OF FOUR-SCORE. 421 

Moulton Sleeper. He was in Herkimer Co. not long since, be v 
tween Utica and Littls Falls. 

Two daughters were theirs. Caesarene married a lawyer of 
note, Robinson, living near Utica. She died early, leaving one 
son. She was beautiful and accomplished. 

Huldah married a Hale and is now living in Utica. 

Marion Moulton married Henry Kellogg of Utica. They had 
two sons. Moulton Kellogg is in New York. They are said to 
be sharp lawyers. Fred Kellogg also lives in New York.

She has two daughter-. They all live in Xew York. Eliza Moul- 
ton married William Pratt of Utica. a lawyer. They live in Utica. 
They had n and two daughters. I hie, Rochester, is in Chi- 

'. Ills. 

After David - - death the children and grandchildren contested 
the will against the wife, calling her no wife. But the courts 
in Utica decided she was his wife, and lawfully made her ad- 
ministratrix. It was all published in the Utica papers one year 
since. 

Eben Moulton married again, a Miss Gardner of Utica. They 
had one -on and two daughters. 

Orris Moulton lived in Southern Illinois, lie was a stock 
raiser of note. He died in St. Louis of cholera on his way home, 
transporting stock, near 1850. He left a wife and several chil- 
dren. 

Eliza Moulton married Hosea Clark of Massachusetts. She 
had a very beautiful daughter, who died young. This hastened 
her father's death. The mother was a most beautiful girl. She 
was like a moss rose in a flower garden. She had dark hair, but 
was fair, and was the envy of some of the tribe, being the second 
wife's child. 

Hosea Clark was a widower and had two sons, Arthur and 
Alford. Arthur died in manhood. Mrs. Clark and the son, Al- 
ford lives at Nowich, Conn. They keep a hotel and boarding 
hoi: 

Maria Moulton married a Mr. Tony of Kentucky; is widowed, 
if living. She may be with her sister, Mrs. Clark. 



422 MOULTON ANNALS. 

Stephen Moulton, the son of Salmon, did live in Rome, New 
York. I think he has some writing pertaining to the ancestors. 
His wife may have them, if living. He was an educated man; 
was a member of the Episcopal church and gave a legacy to young 
men that were fitting for that order. 

Joshua Moulton, the son of Salmon, had Severn, the father 
of Frank Moulton, who figured in the Beecher trial. He is dead. 

Salmon also had a son, John, a printer, in \\\\ York, in Mr. 
Greely's office. He is dead also.
