The Moons and Kindred Families
Before proceeding further with the record of John and Mary (Farmer) Moon, we deem it proper to give a brief sketch of the Farmer family. Mary Farmer we believe was born in Lunenburg County, Virginia, for we find that long before the Revolutionary War that there were Moons and Farmers in Lunenburg County. We find that there were several marriages between the Moons and Farmers of this county at an early date, and since the Moons of this county came from Pennsylvania, Mary Farmer is believed to be a descendant of Jasper Farmer of Pennsylvania, for we learn that he was the progenitor of a large family of Farmers of that State. There was a Christopher Farmer and a George Farmer at Jamestown when it was first established, but we think it almost certain that Mary Farmer descended from Jasper Farmer..
The Surname of Farmer is one of considerable antiquity and is one of the names derived from the occupations of the person. As early as the reign of King Edward the IV, the Farmers were seated in Northamptonshire, where some of them remain to the present time. They resided in Easton-Neston about 1480, where Anne, daughter of Richard Farmer, married William Lucy of Charlecourt, before the year 1545, and it was their son who was Knighted by Queen Anne, and who was the Knight and Magistrate whose name is associated with some of the early events of Shakespeare. William Farmer was created Lord Leinster in 1682 and was the ancestor of the present Earl of Pomfret. He resided at Easton-Nelson, and is said to be the ancestor of Jasper Farmer. Mary Farmer of Northhampton, England, married Hon. Richard Byron, brother or Lord (William) Byron..
There are many Farmers scattered throughout the eastern and southern parts of the United States. They are noted as an honest, honorable, industrious, and prosperous people. Many pages could be written of the Farmer family, but space forbids..
The following is a description of the Farmer Coat of Arms: "He beareth. Sable, Chevron between three Lamps. Argent, with Fire. Proper by the name of Farmer." The Farmers were of Saxon origin..
To John and Mary (Farmer) Moon were born the following children: Rachael, John, Joseph, James and Lawrence. John, Sr., was living in Randolph County, N. C., in 1790..

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Mary by comparing test results with other
carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Mary:
