Robert Moulthrop

Rutland Daily Herald, Aug. 25, 1885:

One of the best known and highly respected of Rutland's farmers dropped away yesterday in the death of Robert Moulthrop at his home on Main street, just south of the village. He had suffered a lingering sickness for several years, had been confined to the house for six weeks, and died at about 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Mr. Moulthrop was born December 8, 1827 on the farm where he died, and where he had always lived except for the years 1851 and 1852 spent in California. The place was settled by his great-grandfather over 100 years ago, and has always been held in the family. Mr. Moulthrop was married October 14, 1868 to Helen J., daughter of the late Miner Hilliard, and his wife survives him. He lived a quiet farmer's life, taking special pride in his crops and his dairy, but was very active in benevolent work among the poor, and helped many laboring men to homes of their own by building the houses in the vicinity of his farm and selling them on easy terms. He leaves, besides his widow, a brother and three sisters, but no children. His funeral will be held at the home at 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon.
