I'm looking for descendants of John Wesley MOON, b. 18 Jan, 1836, Van Buren Twp, Wayne Co., MI, s.o. Stuart/Stewart/Steward C. MOON, and Mary. He was the brother of my 2nd great-grandmother Elizabeth MOON BROWN. Following her death, and that of her sister Emeline, in 1853, the MOON family went to Jackson Co., MI. According to the bios I have, he went to Muskegon in 1856, and was employed as head sawyer, at Beidler Bros. A true success story, he eventually became stockholder and president, or vice-president, of several Muskegon firms, and served two terms as Michigan state senator (1886 - 1890), and one term as U. S. Senator in 1892. John Wesley Moon was married to Alice Noble, in 1867, and they had 6 children, 4 of whom were still living in 1898, when one of the bios was written. The children were not named, but I would like to make contact with any of John and Alice's descendants. One bio is from _Michigan Biographies, Vol. 2_, and the other is from _Michigan Pioneer and History Society, Historical Collections, Vol. XXVIII_, and I'd be happy to share my copies with anyone..
