    • . Benoni was married twice and had 6 Childre n. Benoni was a private in the Rev. War in New York.
    • Actually Benoni is a Biblical name that means "son of my sorrow."
      It was the original name given to the younger son of the patriarch
      Jacob. Rachel, his mother, in her dying agony named the child Benoni.
      (Genesis 35:18).

      This name was often given in American Colonial times to a child whose
      mother died in childbirth or whose father died before the child was
      born. In fact, this is an important clue. When one sees the name Benoni,
      look to see what sad event might have caused the child to be given that
      name. It might have been the death of a grandparent, a parent or a
      sibling.

      The MOON family from 1800 to 1810 were so numerous in a neighborhood two miles in extent, along the west side of Flint Creek, immediately north of Potter Center, that it was designated Moontown.  Afterwards, it was called Hoardtown.
