My name is Lew Hiatt.I have three MOON's listed in my family, Sabina, b. 28 March 1817, Riley, b. (unknown), and Mary, b. (unknown). Sabina would be the wife of my 1st. cousin 3 times removed.
I have been trying research the BRIGGS, and the WIGHTMAN's, who are from R.I. and N.Y., I just looked in the WIGHTMAN ANCESTRY and I think I have the reason for the MOON's in R.I.The MOON's are there.Robert MOON married Eleanor Waite in Exeter 23 Nov. 1752.No birth date for Robert, but Eleanor Waite, b. 9 Jan. 1736, in No. Kingstown, R.I. Other names, Nellie, Linda Kathleen, and Gerald.My HIATT's landed in PA.,moved to MD., then to VA. and NC. and on and on.
I think I might have a little bit more on the MOON's in these two family's if interested.If you have any info. on the BRIGGS, and WIGHTMANS in NY. would appreciate. E-mail: LHiatt8275@aol.com Sincerely, Lew Hiatt
