About Freeborn Moulton

Freeborn Moulton was born 3 Apr 1717 in Windom, Coventry, Connecticut. He died 9 Jun 1792 in So, Brimfield, Hampden Co, Massachusetts.

He came to this Town [Wales] before his marriage, first located upon the "Alvin Needham Place" South West of the Town; staid there a few years; then removed to the South-P. of Monson; there remained and died. There is an unwritten story, which may be taken as truth or fiction, as the reader please, that while his parents were crossing the briny Ocean to this country he was born and was named at the time, "Freeborn" because born outside the acknowledged dominions of any earthly potentatious sovereign. Can proffer nothing more accumulatively of his history.

(note attached from unknown source): The above is erroneous. He was son of Robert, fourth in line from Robert Salem 1630.
