1884 Western Michigan Directory Big Rapids, MI - Lumberman.

ROBERT A. MOON appears in a book (including a picture pg. 21) called, "Hell on Bell Isle" diary of a

Civil War POW by Don Allison.

PG. 20 - "......Under Simpson's orders the Union cavalry mounted up and scouted outside the village,

finding artillery aimed down at the town from low hills to the north and south. Rebels held the

surrounding hig ground and their battle lines commanded the roads leading out of the village. The 6th

Michigan's 1st Lt. ROBERT MOON leading the 75 or so men of the cavalry force, charged the

Confederates blocking the road to Harper's Ferry. Most of the northern horsemen were killed, wounded

or captured in the impetuous attack, with only MOON and 17 troopers escaping to return to the village

and report their discovery."

PG. 36 - "On the morning of the 7th inst., a cavalry force of one hundred men, with three days rations,

was ordered out in the direction of Leesburg upon some mission not yet made public, Captain Deane

being in command of all the cavalry in this brigade, the command of the expidition was assigned to Capt

Vinton, of Company M, who proceeded across the Shenandoah, around the eastern point of Virginia

Heights. Then dividing his command, he proceeded with a portion by the the Berlin route on the Virginia

side of the Potomac, while the balance, under Lieut. MOON, took the road through Hillsborough gap,

both parties meeting in the vicinity of Water ford, in the latter part of the day. Captain Vinton then

marched his (con't pg 38) entire command through the village, and learning that the guerrilla chief, White,

with near 300 men, was but a mile or two away, selected an open space upon eminence, to the eastward

of the village, for his camping ground. The horses were fastened to a fence, while the men slept on their

arms in the open field, which was mainly a gentle slope towrds the village. Immediately back of the

camping ground was a shelter of thick woods. Pickets were sent out at every probable place of

approach. But the enemy was cunning, passing our pickets about twelve o'clock at night, under cover of

the darkness, so skillfully that but a single shot was fired as an alarm. In an instant our men were in there

saddles, but the darkness was such, we could not tell the direction of the enemy was coming from until

he opened fire on us with a brisk fire from a dismounted line, and not more than 30 yards distant. The

reported superiority of their numbers induced Captain Vinton to order an immediate retreat, upon which

Co. M and 40 of the 1st Conn. cavalry, who were with us, dashed quickly by. Co. I, not having heard the

order did not execute it, but were left to shift for themselves, in rather an unpleasant mannor, Lieut.

MOON had his men in splendid line and was doing good execution in the way of fighting., having killed

several of the enemy wounding several others, among them one rebel Captain, when he found himself

with but 20 or 25 men amnong the enemy. He gave the order to retreat, and retired about a mile and a

half to the eastward of the village on the road to Point of Rocks, where they awaited the return of day.

So far as known the casualties to our men were one killed, two wounded, and eighteen missing."

PG. 151 - "1st LT. ROBERT A. MOON returned to the regimanet May 9, 1965, and was mustered out of

the service Nov. 24, 1865, at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. At age 30 Moon enlisted in the regiment Sept. 1,

1862, at Grand Rapids, Mich., and he entered the service as a first lieutenant."

PG. 165 - "........Colonel Simpson then ordered the men to evacuate the buildings and form column by

company in the street, and orderd all of the cavalry force, about 80 men, under Lieutenant MOON, to

reconnoiter the roads and find the weak points of the enemy. This officer led his men out on the road

leading to Harper's Ferry, and finding the enemy ordered a charge, which would seem to have been

improper, and resulted in the killing or capture of all but the lieutenant and 17 men. These returned and

reproted the fact."

 

BIG RAPIDS FURNITURE COMPANY, Big Rapids, Michigan - This company was organized in June,

1872, with a capital stock of $50,000. They manufacture all kinds of furniture and ship to all parts of the

country. Orders have been received from California, and other border states. The amount of work done

by this company since it's organization, is really surprising and is another gratifying sign of business

prosperity, and clearly indicates the rapid growth of the city. The officers are as follows: President, R. A.

Moon; Vice President, J. T. Escott; Secretary and Treasurer, Wm. Van Loo. (As appeared in an early

Big Rapids City Directory.)

MOON'S MILL - Mr. R.A. MOON, built a large steam saw mill, near the Tioga Company's dam, about two

years ago. He is an extensive Lumberman and has done business on the Muskegon River for the past

ten or twelve years. His mill is not one of the largest, yet it turns out on an average about 35,000 feet of

lumber per day. (As appeared in an early Big Rapids City Directory.)

ROBERT A. MOON also appears in a book titled, "Lumbering In Newago County" by Harry L. Spooner.

PG. 43 - "A group of lumbermen who owned pine lands in the nothern part of the county built a narrow-

guage railroad from Crapo and Paris into their holdings. Messrs. CHURCH, MOON, CROSBY,

NICHOLS AND PALMER were in the operating group. They had 70,000,000 feet of pine to cut along the

railroad as well as much hemlock."

PG. 44 - "Moon's camp consisted of an upper and lower camp. At the upper camp, on section 21, were

the men's and cook shanties. At first the logs were transported to the Muskegon on a truck road mad of

hewed logs. This road ran through sections 21, 22, 27, 34 and 35 to the river. The first improvement

was made when they put in a tram road made of wooden rails. They loaded the cars and fastened them

together on Snub Hill. They started the train down the hill with two brakemen. They took the cars that

way for a mile to the lower camp. There the cars were separated and a horse hitched to each and

hauled from there to the river. Later the tram roads were taken up and light steel rails were put in place

of the wooden rails. At this time the new camp was started on section 22. The road ran through section

27 and joined the old road. Then a Lima engine was put on. This engine had an upright boiler and

gears on one side. Robert Moon sold his interest to Cody & Addis. NOTE: R. A. Moon's log mark was a

number, "35", one of the first marks on the Muskegon River."

"THE FIRST WHITE PATHFINDERS OF NEWAGO CO. MICHIGAN" BY HARRY L. SPOONER:

PG. 189 - "White Cloud was incorporated and Fred Ramsey was elected president. The Trustee's were

James L. Morgan, Robert A. Moon, James M. Gibbs, James H. Decker, James McLeod and Lee A.

Mason. William Rose was clerk and Charles S. Wilcox treasurer."

PG. 218 - "ROBERT MOON had a camp on section 21 and Stimson & Fay one on section 9, Goodwell."

MECOSTA TOWNSHIP, MECOSTA COUNTY, MICHIGAN - The township of Mecosta was organized in

March, 1861, and Robert A. Moon was it's first Supervisor.

CAPT. R.A. MOON DIED SUNDAY

End Came Very Suddenly

Robert A. Moon died Sunday morning at his home, 624 South State Street, aged 76 years. He died very

suddenly and quietly. He had been suffering with swollen limbs for some time past, so severely of late

that he was unable to go to bed; but would sit up all night and sleep in a big chair. Yesterday morning

when Mrs. Moon got up she noticed that the fire in the stove, which he had been in the habit of keeping

up during the night, had gone-down and nearly out. She touched him and found that her fears were

realized - her husband was dead. His body was still warm. Mrs. Moon at once telephoned for a

physican, who when he arrived said that Mr. Moon had probably been dead two hours. Heart trouble

probably caused his death. Robert A. Moon had lived in Big Rapids for nearly 47 years, and was

therfore one of the very oldest residents of this county. He was one of the most prominent of the older

settlers here. In 1862 he was commisioned a lieutenant in the United States Army, after having

furnished 21 men from here to join Co. I; which he took to Grand Rapids, where they joined the 6th

Michigan Calvary, During the progress of the war, he was captured by the Confederates and made a

prisoner. He spent in all 18 months in the prisons of the rebel army. Most of the time in Libbey Prison.

The balance of the enlistment he served under General Custer. He was discharged honorably with the

rank of Captain. Mr. Moon was born in Elbridge, NY, January 11, 1831. He moved west in 1859, coming

direct to Michigan. He settled in Newago; but remained there only about six months. He then moved to

Big Rapids, where he resided until death removed him, with the exception of the time he spent in the

army. He was for many years engaged in the lumber business. Just prior to coming to Michigan he was

married at Adrian, NY, to Susan J. Granger of Almond, NY from which union four boys were born. He

was married the second time to Mrs. Josephine E. Braman, on May 6, 1886. This last Union was

blessed by the birth of one son. The children all living. They are; R.G. and L.A. Moon of Texas, H.E.

Moon of Alaska, W.S of Cadillac and Phillip S. Moon, at home. Besides his second wife and the children,

he is survied by two brothers, one living in Missouri and the other in Iowa. The son from Cadillac and a

stepson from Chicago, George Braman and also H.W. Gore, a brother of Mrs. Moon, are expected here

for the funeral.
