    PIONEER GREER AREA FAMILIES



    William Moon was born 3 May 1768 in Lunenburg County, Va., and died in Greenville County, S.C. 18 March 1833. He was the son of Gideon and Mary Hill Moon (see their sketch in The Citizen).

    The Cumberland Episcopal Parish records show that William Moon married 28 September 1791 to Martha K. Glenn, born 1 Nov. 1771 and died 22 Dec. 1856 She was the daughter of Jeremiah Glenn and his wife Anna Blagrave (See their sketch in The Citizen). After his marriage William Moon removed to a farm between Woods Chapel and Abner Creek churches. Later he sold this place and bought extensive holdings on the road from Groce's Meadow to Mountain View where he and his wife are buried along side the road on a farm owned by the late Richard Howell. In this same family graveyard are buried his son, Gideon Moon and his wife, nee Lucinda Greer.

    William Moon signed his will 2 March 1833 and named the following heirs as Martha Knewstep Moon, my wife.

    Mary A. B. Wood, my daughter, and further investigation shows her as Mary Ann Blagrave Wood.

    Sarah G. Wood, my daugher, and further investigation shows her as Sarah Garland Moon Wood.

    Abner H. Moon, my son.

    William H. Moon, my son.

    Gideon Moon, my son.

    The witnesses to this will were Jabez Gilreath, M.C. Hudson and Alston Kendrick.

    It is claimed that this William Moon was a soldier of the Revolution, but I have never found any proof of this. If he served in the Revolution it was during the last year when he was aged 15 years old. DAR memberships have been established on Gideon Moon, the father of this William Moon.

    Abraham Wood and Thomas Wood bought heavily at the sale of the personal estate of William Moon and they may have been his sons-in-law. I would greatly appreciate if some Citizen reader would send me data on whom each of these children married. Rachel Moon married Tyre Glenn and see my sketch on them. She was a sister of William Moon and Tyre Glenn was a brother of Martha Knewstep Glenn Moon. Their children were double first cousins.
