-military: reportedly drafted 1777 with General Burgoyne aboard The Royal George for the British Royal Artillery; possibly deserted after the Battle of Bennington; joined the Colonial Army thus receiving rights to Depreciation Lands in Western PA
-burial: Guyton family cemetery (burying ground) atop Sugarloaf/Flagstaff Hill, North Park, McCandless Twp.

They say “relatives” are also buried there, but as far as we know, the Moons were just neighbors.
