Abel MOULTON appears in the 1860 & 1870 census of Castleton, Rutland Co., VT. Abel was my paternal 4th-great granduncle, the son of John and Avis (HURLBUT) MOULTON.
In the 1860 census, Abel is living in the household of John and Louis EATON, his in-laws. Abel is listed as a 59 year old farmer, born in Vermont, with real estate valued at $1100 and a personal estate valued at $600. His wife Miriam was listed as aged 60, born in Vermont.
By the 1870 census, Abel is listed as a 69 year old farmer, born in Vermont, with real estate valued at $500 and a personal estate valued at $2000. Wife Miriam was listed as 70 years old, born in Vermont.
I do not know if Abel and Miriam had any children. There was a William Moulton family living next door in the 1860 census that could be a son.
