Molbry K. Haslam

Molbry K. HASLAM is my first cousin four times removed, we are related through his grandparents, my fourth great grandparents David Ross and Olive (MOORE) HOPKINS and his great grandparents, my fifth great grandparents Solomon I. and Christiana (SIMONTON) JORDAN, and quite likely through his second great grandparents with the last name WESCOTT, though that hasn’t been established at this point.  Molbry is the sixth of seven children born to John P. and Louisa P. (HOPKINS) HASLAM.  Molbry was born 27 January 1840 in Waltham, Maine.  He was enumerated with his parents in 1850 and 1860 in Waltham.[1]  He registered for the Civil War Draft in June 1863 in Waltham.[2]  He is enumerated as a laborer on Calvin Kingman’s farm in Waltham in the 1870 census.[3]  He married Sarah Ednor JORDAN [my fourth cousin three times removed through her third great grandparents, my sixth great grandparents Nathaniel and Dorothy (HILL) JORDAN].[4]  Molbry and Sarah did not have any children.   Molbry and Sarah were enumerated in 1880, 1900 and 1910 censuses in Waltham.[5]  He was a selectman for the town of Waltham, in 1885 and 1889.[6]  Molbry died 7 July 1916 of bronchial pneumonia caused by la grippe in Waltham.[7]  He is buried at Hillside Cemetery in Waltham.
