I need to find out the origins/ancestors of J. A. Moon:
J. (James?) A. Moon(my ggg grandfather) b1820 d1893 was married to Mary Pendergrass b? d1902
They are buried at Old Field(now known as Peachtree Road baptist Church-1st known as Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church from 1860 to 1950) along with may other Moon's at Lawrenceville-Suwanee area in Gwinnett County, Georgia (possibly John and Nancy? Moon owned some of the property where the church now sits?)
J.A.'s Son (my great great grandfather):
Henry Jefferson Moon b 8/24/1851 d9/24/1921 was married to Nancy Peevy b12/7/1852, d2/1/1908 (He may have had a brother William). Henry was coroner of Gwinnett member of a Masonic lodge judging from the emblem on his tombstone. There is some old microfilm from newspaper on him. He weighed about 300lbs, was a horse doctor and his coffin had to be built for his extra large size. Their children were
John, Della (Brownlee), Essie(McAdams), George (who may have moved to richmond, Va), Taylor, Charlie (Moon's Treasures for you home and other Moon's in Snelliville decendents of), Suzie (Sexton), Lemmer, Emma, Rude (last 3 names could be two people who are twins Metilda Ruth, b1874, d1958 and Lemmer.)
