Albert Moulton, one of South Acton’s respected citizens, passed away early Sunday morning after a short but very severe illness, of pneumonia. Mr. Moulton was a native of Sandwich, N.H., coming to this village in 1852, where he has since lived, winning the respect and esteem of all by his square dealings and upright character.
He served in the civil war as a member of the Acton company, which went under Capt. Aaron Handley and he was for many years a member of the Capt. Isaac Davis Post, G.A.R., of Acton. Mr. Moulton was at one time highway surveyor, but has always followed farming.
Two years ago Mr. And Mrs. Moulton celebrated their golden wedding at the Universalist church, where they have both been constant attendants. Mr. Moulten leaves four daughters all of whom are married. Two weeks ago four generations were seated around his table on Sunday.
Mr. Moulten will be greatly missed by the community, for his life has always been above reproach.
The services were held at the Universalist church on Tuesday afternoon, the interment being at Mount Hope. Mr. Moulton was 76 years old.
