      Generation No. 1
      1. JESSE5 MOON (THOMAS4, JOHN3, JAMES2, JAMES1)1 was born 24 Feb 1776 in North Carolina, and died 1873 in Walton Co Ga. He married (1) RACHEL WILLINGHAM Abt. 1798 in Ga. She was born Abt. 1780. He married (2) LUCRETIA (CREACY) WILLINGHAM Aft. 1820 in Ga. She was born Bet. 1790 - 1800. He married (3) MARY A. (POLLY) BROWN Abt. 1846 in Probably Walton Co. GA. She was born Abt. 1825.
      Notes for JESSE MOON: I find this date suspect. I can find no evidence of Jesse in the 1870 census--not in Cobb, not in Walton, not in Alabam a. But tradition says he died 1873 at his brother Joseph's home in Walton Co. GA and is buried on the property there. Change Date: 25 Oct 2005 at 23:10 Note: Most of the Moon files, based on William H. Moon's book, have the children of Jesse Moon hopelessly scrambled. Some are listed as children of Rachel, despite the fact that they were born AFTER he was supposedly having children by Lucretia. I have rearranged them in an attempt to make sense of the problem--based on marriage and census records of as man y of the children as I could find. Since some of these children were quite young when Rachel died, they may have consid ered Lucretia their mother, but census records indicate all of Jesse's children born before 1820 were by his first wife . Wm. H. Moon "researched" this family by simply asking people for information. Descendants of the younger children--wh o grew up with Jesse's second wife--would quite naturally have said their mother was Lucretia (if indeed that was the n ame of Jesse's second wife), but the records indicate otherwise. He also had two children no one lists for him--the Eli jah Moon born abt. 1799 (who is usually assigned to Thomas and Lucretia), and Lucretia, born abt. 1800, who was married to Raleigh Sanders Willingham (notes on each child for supporting documents).
      There are no marriage records for Jesse anywhere in Georgia, no proof of William H. Moon's claim that he married 1) Rac hel Willingham 2) Lucretia Willingham, and 3) Polly Brown, but until further evidence surfaces, I have used Wm. H. Moon's assertion that Jesse's first two wives were Rachel and Lucretia Willingham. The names of their children certainly include Willingham names.
      Columbia Co. tax list, 1812: Jesse Moon 25 slaves, 475 acres adj. Neal and Willingham on Sullivan's Creek, 130 acres adj Collins and Cole on Cane C rk.
      1820 census, Columbia Co. GA, Dist. 11 Jesse Moon 2 0 0 1 0 1 3 1 0 0 0 0 2 males under 10 1 male 16-26 1 male over 45 3 F under 10 1 F 10-16
      There should be at least 4 males: Thomas B. born 19 Jun 1810 would have only been 10 years old (so is his birthdate wrong or did the census taker put him in the wrong slot? This slot does fit Elijah, but then one son is missing); Madiso n b. 1815, Lewis M. b. 1818. There should also be at least 3 females: Sandal b. ca 1804, Rachel b. ca 1804, Nelope b . 1816. Some files have a Patsy born ca. 1803--but Jesse had another child born 1824 who was Martha, so I think "Patsy " was an error since it is almost always a nickname for Martha.. Apparently in 1820, Jesse did not have a wife.
      Other children born before 1820: Elijah: not in the 1820 census on his own--is he the male in Jesse's household 16-26? Lucretia married Raleigh Sanders Willingham about 1815. John Willingham who married in Feb. of 1820, was probably elsewhere. Mary "Polly" Moon who married Burton Baggett is often given a birthdate of 11 Dec 1810--she wouldn't have made the cens us; however, I think that birthdate is based on the gravestone of the SECOND wife of Burton Baggett, whose name is giv en as Rachel (maiden name may be Rutledge) on the 1860 census, Cobb Co. and that Mary/Polly IS one of the four daughter s in the 1820 census, probably born ca. 1806.

      Between 1847 and 1849 Jesse made a series of deeds either as gifts or sales to his children and grandchildren, probably in preparation for his move to Alabama:

      He also sold to his brother Joseph Moon, 252 acres in the 4th district, Walton Co, part of lots #252, #251, #268 (Dee d Bk Q, 20 Feb 1847).
      1850: the following Jesse Moon in Chambers Co. AL is probably Jesse, born NC, age 74 in 1850. The young wife named Mar y also fits the story Wm. H. Moon tells about his marrying a third time to a Polly Brown and moving to AL (Wm. H. sai d Randolph--and Mary Moon was in Randolph in 1860).

      Jesse is not on the Chambers slave schedule for 1850, but Mary A. Moon is--with six slaves.
      In 1860, Jesse Moon was in the household of a J.N. Hardy in Cobb Co., next door to the household of John Willingham Moo n, his oldest son. His third wife, Mary, was in Randolph Co. AL(see notes under Mary). p. 303, #598 Hardy, J. N. 41 M b. NC Farmer Sarah 38 F b. GA Louisa 11 F " J.A. 8 F " D.M. 5 M " Roberts, Charles 18 M b. GA Farm laborer Moon, Jesse 85 M b. NC
      I do not know who J.N. Hardy was, but he was probably the son of the J.W. Hardy whom Temperance Baggett, sister of Burton Baggett (who married Polly Moon). married. Her first husband was Roberts; Charles Roberts in the Hardy household was her son.

Lived in Anson Co., N.C., 1820 (1 male under 10, 3 females under 10). Allen Roberts was a purchasor of the estate of Allen Baggett in Walton Co. in 1825 and a legatee in 1827; lived in Gwinnett Co., 1830 census. Temperance married 2nd John W. Hardy.

      Jesse supposedly died in 1873 at the home of his brother Joseph in Walton Co. I have not been able to find him in an 1870 census, so I have read doubts about this date of death.
      Jesse does not have a female in his 1820 household of an age to be a wife, unless she was much younger than he was. Th e oldest female in the 1820 household was age 10-16. Thus it is not clear when he married Lucretia. However, it was likely that he married her after 1820 and that only the last three children born in Columbia Co. GA were Lucretia's.

Moon's "History of the Moon Family" (Atlanta 1920): "JOHN WILLINGHAM MOON, son of Jesse and Rachael (Willingham) Moon, and grandson of Thomas and Sarah (Brooks)Moon, was born in Columbia county, Georgia, on April 14, 1802. On February 20, 1820, he was married to Miss Harriet Cole, the daughter of Marcus Cole, of Columbia county, Georgia. He continued after his marriage to reside in Columbia county until th e year 1824, when he moved to Walton county, Georgia. He resided in Walton county until 1837, when he moved to Cobb cou nty and settled on Powder Springs creek, near the line of Paulding county where he lived until his death on May 27, 1876. To them were born eleven children, nine sons and two daughters. His two oldest children were born in Columbia county; a ll of the others except the two youngest were born in Walton county; the two youngest were born in Cobb county. The nam es of their children are as follows: Joseph K., Cicero D., W. L., (known as Coot,) Thomas Jefferson, John Frances, Isaa c N., Lucy Ellen, W. W. Lump' J. M. Lee, Stephen C., Sarah N. E. Harriet (Cole) Moon died May 3, 1843, and John Willingham Moon on November 1843, was married to Miss Prudence Baggett, of Cobb county, Georgia. To them were born six childre n, as follows: Mariles J., born September 30,1844. She married John Summers. Mary Elizabeth, born March 7, 1847, and married James R. Summers; died May 24, 1914. Susan L., born December 16, 1849; married to David S. Poole. Benjamin F., born September 11, 1864, and married Miss Mary Paris. Rachael R., born October 3,1867; married to James R. Eliot. Willi e was born March 6, 1860, and was married to William R. House. Prior to the Civil War John Willingham Moon had accumulated considerable property and was the owners of a few slaves. W hen he discovered that his father's third wife was wasting his property he sent two of his sons, John Frances and Cicero D., to Randolph county, Ala., the home of his father at that time, and had them get some of his father's slaves and b ring them back to Georgia. These slaves remained with him until they were emancipated. Many years before his death he joined the Primitive Baptist church and lived a consistent Christian life. He was for ma ny years clerk of the Marietta Primitive Baptist Association. He was an exemplary citizen, and he had the moral courage to stand for that which was right, and to condemn that which was wrong without any regard whatever as to whether hi s course met with popular approval. This same noble principle was characteristic of all his children.When the Civil War came on he was intensely loyal to the South, and while he was too old to do military duty himself, he furnished seven sons and two sons-in-law, who did valiant service for the of the Confederacy. All of these, save two , W. W. Lump and Stephen C., who died from sickness while in the army, return at the close of the war to their homes an d families, where de as good citizens as they did soldiers. It was the boast Willingham Moon that he had seven sons and two sons-in who went through the war, and that not one of them was ever hit by a Yankee bullet. On account of his strong stan d for the Confederacy, the Yankee army destroyed much valuable property belonged to him when Sherman s army came throug h Georgia."

      3. THOMAS B.6 MOON (JESSE5, THOMAS4, JOHN3, JAMES2, JAMES1) was born 19 Jun 1810 in Columbia Co. GA. He married EMELIANN DAVIS 12 Aug 1828, daughter of BENJAMIN DAVIS and ELIZABETH DANIEL. She was born 1810 in Ga, and died Bef. 09 Apr 1848 in Walton Co.GA.
      Notes for EMELIANN DAVIS: Her date of death conflicts with Walton Co. record of Thomas B, Moon's marriage to Susan J. Moon. I don't know source o f this date of death, but given the fact that her last child, Rachel Rebecca, was born August 1840, I'd suspect Emilian n died not long after that. Someone probably wrote she died BEFORE 1850--and the "before" was omitted. Children of THOMAS MOON and EMELIANN DAVIS are: i. JESSE BENJAMIN EDOM7 MOON, b. Jan 1830, GA; d. 11 Feb 1830. ii.

      Letter from Charles L. Bookout to Walter Bookout dated 31 May 1857: "I am at a great loss to know who that Nancy Bookout is that you said was married and had 11 children and 8 married. I know of but two Nancy Bookout's which is brother Thomas Bookout's wife and cousin William E. Bookout's. I suppose the one that you make mention of must be the child that father's second wife had before they were married - her name was Nancy. She was raised in father's family and bore the name of Nancy Bookout. Your mother and sister Delilah Lumpkin know all about her.

      5. LEWIS S.6 MOON (JESSE5, THOMAS4, JOHN3, JAMES2, JAMES1) was born 24 Dec 1818 in Columbia Co. GA, and died 04 Aug 1893 in Gwinnett Co. GA. He married CATHERINE (KATIE) WEBB Abt. 1848. She was born 27 Sep 1827 in Gwinnett Co. GA, and died Aug 1893.
      Notes for LEWIS S. MOON: A marriage record in Walton Co. for Lewis S. Moon Jr. and Dollie Willingham, 8 Oct 1835. Dollie may be Martha, d/o Raleigh S. Willingham and Lucretia Moon--but not proven! No evidence of her or of children born in the 1830s. Although I have "bought" the marriage at the moment, I am not happy with it because of the ages. If I could find evidence of another Lewis S. Moon Jr., just older than Jesse's, I would be happier. However, born 1818, it is possible Lewis S. married at 17. From Jerry Lee Moon Children of LEWIS MOON and CATHERINE WEBB are: i. CALVIN CASH7 MOON, b. 1850, GA. ii. RACHEL ELIZABETH MOON, b. 27 Jul 1852, GA. iii. SUSAN MOON, b. 1855, GA. iv.

      1. iii.Jesse MOON was born 24 FEB 1776 in Deep River, Guilford Co. NC, and died 1873 in Walton Co.GA. He married Rachel WILLINGHAM ABT 1800, daughter of John WILLINGHAM and Ann [WILLINGHAM]. She was born ABT 1780, and died BEF 1820 in Columbia Co. GA. He married Lucretia (Creacy) WILLINGHAM AFT 1820, daughter of John WILLINGHAM and Ann [WILLINGHAM]. She was born BET 1790 AND 1800 in Georgia. He married Mary A. (Polly) BROWN ABT 1846 in Probably Walton Co. GA. ID: I13 Name: Jesse MOON Given Name: Jesse Surname: Moon Sex: M Note: Most of the Moon files, based on William H. Moon's book, have the children of Jesse Moon hopelessly scrambled. Some are listed as children of Rachel, despite the fact that they were born AFTER he was supposedly having children by Lucretia. I have rearranged them in an attempt to make sense of the problem--based on marriage and census records of as many of the children as I could find. Since some of these children were quite young when Rachel died, they may have considered Lucretia their mother, but census records indicate all of Jesse's children born before 1820 were by his first wife. Wm. H. Moon "researched" this family by simply asking people for information. Descendants of the younger children--who grew up with Jesse's second wife--would quite naturally have said their mother was Lucretia (if indeed that was the name of Jesse's second wife), but the records indicate otherwise. He also has two children no one lists for him--the Elijah Moon born abt. 1799 (who is usually assigned to Thomas and Lucretia), and Lucretia, born abt. 1800, who was married to Raleigh Sanders Willingham (notes on each child for supporting documents). There are no marriage records for Jesse anywhere in Georgia, no proof of William H. Moon's claim that he married 1) Rachel Willingham 2) Lucretia Willingham, and 3) Polly Brown but until further evidence surfaces, I have used Wm. H. Moon's assertion that Jesse's first two wives were Rachel and Lucretia Willingham. 1820 census, Columbia Co. GA, Dist. 11 Jesse Moon 2 0 0 1 0 1 3 1 0 0 0 0 2 males under 10 1 male 16-26 1 male over 45 3 F under 10 1 F 10-16 There should be at least 4 males: Thomas B. born 19 Jun 1810 would have only been 10 years old (so is his birthdate wrong or did the census taker put him in the wrong slot? This slot does fit Elijah, but then one son is missing); Madison b. 1815, Lewis M. b. 1818. There should also be at least 3 females: Sandal b. ca 1804, Rachel b. ca 1804 , Nelope b. 1816. Some files have a Patsy born ca. 1803--but Jesse had another child born 1824 who was Martha, so I think "Patsy" was an error since it is almost always a nickname for Martha.. Apparently in 1820, Jesse did not have a wife. Other children born before 1820: Elijah: not in the 1820 census on his own--is he the male in Jesse's household 16-26? Lucretia married Raleigh Sanders Willingham about 1815. John Willingham who married in Feb. of 1820, was probably elsewhere. Mary "Polly" Moon who married Burton Baggett is often given a birthdate of 11 Dec 1810--she wouldn't have made the census; however, I think that birthdate is based on the gravestone of the SECOND wife
