Brigham NEPHI Moulton was born to Joseph and Mary Elizabeth
Giles Moulton in Heber City, Utah.
With his next older brother, Alma Moulton, he migrated to the Egin Bench near Rexburg, Idaho
in 1902. After one year they sold that farm and migrated to Darby, Teton Co., Idaho.
Two years of drought forced them to move on. They chose an abandoned homestead
in the community of Zenith, Lincoln Co., Wyoming
(now Teton Co.). Alma married their
cousin Ada Lenora Moulton in 1911 and died later that
same year. Nephi eventually bought out Nora's interest in the ranch he and Alma
had developed. Nephi married Mathilde Stuve (see other entry), an imported schoolmarm, in June
1917. To them were born 5 children, (living), Merrill Nephi Moulton (see other
entry)1918-1992, John Martin Moulton 1920-1920,
(living), and Gladys Mary Moulton (see other entry) 1925-2000. Nephi served on
the Board of County Commissioners for several years - being the one responsible
for the purchase of the first grader for the county roads - and on the local
school board for a number of years. He died in Jackson, Wyoming Dec.2, 1966. This information from personal knowledge.
