Moses Lovering came from Exeter, New Hampshire and settled in Loudon in 1784. He married Nellie Taylor, of Exeter, and had a family of 13 children, named Willabee, Nellie, Osgood, Taylor, Nancy, Moses, Jesse, Mary, Zebulon, John, Daniel, William and Sarah, all of whom lived till from 45 to 90 years of age, and were married and raised families of children. He came with nine children on horseback, and drove one cow, upon which depended sustenance of the family in a large degree. The country through which he had to travel, when near Loudon, was a wilderness, and the settlers in those towns below furnished him aid in getting through. He moved into a log house between the dwelling of S.B Lovering and the highway near the sawmill. Zebulon had a family of 11 children; 9 of them lived, and were named, Samuel B., True, Almira, Annis J., Sarah B., Louisa, Laura L., Abigail and Alonzo B.
