VI.1073. Daniel B. Molby, b. June 10, 1834, in the town of Van Buren, Onondaga Co., N.Y. (Chester 5, Jonathan 4, Sam.3, Sam.2, Wm.1). Mar. Nov. 16, 1859, Sallie Rouse, dau. of Collin Rouse and Mira ----. She was b. Jan. 31, 1840, in New York State; d. Oct. 8, 1891.

He was a carpenter by trade. His father died when he was about three years old and his mother remarried and went west a few years later. His uncle, Benjamin Molby of Van Buren was made his guardian. He grew up in the town of Van Buren; married there and his two child- ren were born there. Some time after 1865 he went West, perhaps at the same time his uncle Benjamin did, and settled in Michigan.

According to Mr. Fred A Molby of Baldwin, Kansas, his grave is in Glendale Cemetery, Waverly Twp., Van Buren Co., Mich. 1865 Census. Van Buren--2nd Election District.

                                     June 20, 1865

Note. The record before me of Daniel B. Molby gives him a son "Simon L. Molby." Here a Simon L. 15 years old in 1865, or born 1850, is given as "grandson." As Sally the wife of Daniel, is recorded as born in 1840, I think there is no question but what "Simon L." was a grandson of Simon Rouse in whose family Daniel and wife, Sally Rouse was living.

(Guardian Records in Syracuse surrogate's office.)

"Daniel B. Molby becomes of age June 10, 1855 (so born June 10, 1834). This agrees with Bible record. Benjamin Molby of Town of Van Buren, guardian. Letters CC. 73.

Mr F. A. Molby of Baldwin, Kansas, writes: "The census of 1880 listed them in Waverly Twp., Van Buren Co., Mich. Much of their life was in Michigan, in part at Dryden, Lapeer County."
