This small family cemetery is located on Rte. 365 in Floyd, apparently on the old Moulton homestead. Col. Stephen Moulton, along with his sons Stephen [Jr.], Benjamin and Salmon were early white settlers in what later became the Town of Floyd, arriving there about 1795. Col. Stephen Moulton and Salmon are buried here. Stephen Moulton was made Lieutenant Colonel of the Twenty-Second Regiment of Connecticut militia in 1774; and Colonel after his participation in the the Battle of Bunker Hill. He and Salmon were taken prisoner after the Battle of Long Island in 1776. Salmon was exchanged in 1777. Stephen was paroled in early January 1777, but not exchanged until April 1778.
