I am very curious about the surname "Moman". I descend from early pioneer stock who took the Wilderness Road from Virginia into Kentucky, then my ancestors were settled in Southern Indiana by 1835. I have searched every line on my paternal side, and cannot find the name. However, my dad's great-great grandparents put "Moman" in as the middle name for one of their younger sons, who was born in 1830 while they were still in Kentucky. The name is written out in full on his tombstone,JOHN MOMAN FIELDS, with no doubt with the spelling. I have seen an early census in Kentucky (not the county where my ancestors lived) with the names of JOHN M. MOMAN, and living closeby, WILLIAM MOMAN. Other than that, I know nothing. I have searched libraries where I found it is Dutch in origin. Just one paternal line of mine could have "Moman" in the background as I can't go back any further than 1771.
