|Thanks guys...It could also be that they put the wrong unit on the headstone..All the Moons in the 47th were related (cousins, uncles and brothers). Not that it's terribly relavant, but Clinton County Ohio was home to the Moon Colony (that's what they called it). The Moon Colony was established by the Moon family from the Carolinas in the early 1800s, and they were quite prolific and by the mid 1800s there were over 200 hundred family members. Jobe S Moon was born in 1842 the son of Moses Moon who registered for the draft...I'll keep researching.
