* Several accounts suggest Henry Moon’s birth as 1718. In a ledger from the old inn (October 11, 1825) is a note stating that he “departed this life” at 107 years, 2 months, and 4 days. An Armstrong County newspaper also printed this. The same ledger records his wife Sara’s death in 1839, aged 99 years. If this is correct, are we missing a generation? The birth of Joseph Myler, Sr. comes too late in their lives for Henry and Sarah’s earlier birth dates to be accurate.
# Research is ongoing to determine possible connections among the Wilsons who married into other parts of the family, considering the proximity of dates:
James Wilson, Sr. (Pearce-associated family 1704-1776) m.
Jean ___ (1721-1798) and
Elizabeth Wilson (unknown) m.
John Anderson (Gray 1731-1814).
