Since my last message Ichecked a map and did find a Monson near the Rangely Lakes I believe and noted tha it is close to an Abbott Village. Could it be that our Moses was in fact from Monson and the marriage record contained an error. The local minister or someone else might have confused Monson with Mousam. I still don't really know if there was a place called Mousam. There is a well-known lake of that name, part of which must be in Shapleigh wwhere Mose,Jr lived and is buried. But if there is an Abbott Village near Monson there must have been Abbotts living there so I don't know what to think. I will try to find out whether in the old days they might have referred to Shapleigh or a part of it as Mousam.
