George Gibson MOON
WARNING:  at least one secondary source is confusing our subject with George Clarence MOON, b. Jun 1886, who was son of George Thomas MOON & Sally J. DYE and married Eva Maude BUTLER.  These are two different men.
Husband:  George Gibson MOON
Birth:  17 Feb 1882, Elbert Co., GA
Death:  4 Mar 1966, DeKalb Co., GA
Last Residence:  Stone Mountain, DeKalb Co., GA
Occupation:  cotton mill worker
Father:  James Pink MOON
Mother:  Margaret M. NICHOLS
Marriage:  13 Mar 1904, Madison Co., GA
Wife:  Ossie O. MERONEY
Birth:  Feb 1888, Madison Co., GA
Death:  16 Feb 1957, DeKalb Co., GA
Occupation:  homemaker, cotton mill worker
Father:  William B. MERONEY
Mother:  Dicy C. S. CHAMBLER
Alleged Child:
They are said to have had this child, but she is not with them in the 1910 or 1920 census.
1.  Monteen MOON, b. 19 Apr 1911; m. 1928/9, Lester J. PRINCE (1905-1958)

In the 1830 census, Lester & Montine PRINCE are sharing a dwelling place with George & Ossie (see below), but the form of the census record only indicates they inhabit the same building, which could be a duplex or a small apartment house, or Lester could simply be George's employee renting a room from him.  Also, Monteen's alleged birthdate (1911) not jibe with the age of Lester's wife in 1930 (26).  If she was really born ca. 1904 and really was our subjects' daughter, she should have been with them in both the 1910 and 1920 censuses, which she is not.  It's possible she was sent away to boarding school, but if so, a record of it should be found before connecting her to our subjects because the 1930 census, alone, is not enough to substantiate that she is their daughter.  Of course, finding Lester & Montine's marriage record would presumably clear this up, but these are not my kin, so someone else will have to make the effort to find it.

I can't place Lillian, but as a MERONEY, surely she is kin to Ossie.
