About Lydia E. Moon (Bodine / Burk)

Among those who have done a lot of research on the Moon lines, there has been a long standing controversy over whether Lydia Moon, wife of Jonas, was a Bodine or a Burk. The researchers in this area seem to think she was a Burk, but it is noted in some of their records that she may have been a Bodine. If she was a Burk, she was most likely the sister of John Burk, born 1766 in VA, died in Hamilton County. If she was a Bodine, she was most likely the sister of John Burk's wife, Effie Bodine, who was born 1780 in VA, and also died in Hamilton Co, TN. Note, also, that the birth and death dates on her old and new headstones are at odds. I have listed the dates from her original headstone.
