Gregg, I do have some information regarding German Lutheran Moons of Ontario/Yates County, NY that I will send to you by email. These German Lutheran Moons of Yates County are sometime confused with Benoni Moon's line (what you call a Newport line).
In regards to your Jacob Briggs question, there were several Briggs who followed the Jeremiah Wilkerson religious group to Ontario County, N.Y. near various settlements of German Lutherans. As I recall a biographical description of Wilkerson's followers is provided in in one of Dr. Alden Beman's , Rhode Island Genealogical Register. I don't recall which volume.
Hope this is helpful.
Sincerely, Fred Wickizer 6613 N. Greenview Chicago, Illinois 60626
