Fordyce M. Moulton
Fordyce M. Moulton, one of Vergennes's oldest and best known citizens, died Wednesday morning after an illness of three weeks. He had been in failing health for some time due to advanced age, but had continued to look after his varied business interests up to the time he was obliged to take to his bed.
Mr. Moulton was born in Monkton Dec, 9, 1842, and when seven years of age moved to West Ferrisburg, coming to Vergennes in 1872 and since residing here. At the outbreak of the Civil war Mr. Moulton enlisted in Company I, Fourteenth Vermont regiment, being made a corporal. He was mustered out July 30, 1863, and on August 29, 1864 enlisted in the Second Vermont battalion, light artillery, being later transferred to the First company, heavy artillery, March 1, 1863, in which he was quartermaster sergeant. He was a member of Ethan Allen Post, G.A.R., of which he was commander for several years, and at the time of his death held the office of surgeon of the post. He was a member of Dorchester Lodge, A. F. and A. m., and of Champlain Lodge, No. 57, I.O.O.F. Mr. Moulton had held various offices under the city government, having been justice of the peace, member of the board of listers, overseer of poor and road commissioner. He was the owner of the Monitor telephone line and was the inventor of the Moulton road machine. He also carried on a retail coal business. Mr. Moulton was married January 1, 1906 to Lucy Norton of West Addison, who survives him, with two daughters, Mrs. P. C. Russell and Mrs. Charles Maccabee. The funeral will be held Friday.
