Charles Moon dead at home

Charles Moon, 49 died Nov. 11, 1909 at his home on Hudson St., Warrensburgh. He had been a great sufferer from Bright's disease (degeneration of the kidneys) for several years but he actually died of consumption of the bowels, following an attack of pneumonia which set in last Christmas. He was confined to his bed for seven months.

For 25 years, he was employed as bookkeeper and telegraph operator at Clinton Prison, Dannemora where he went to work when his father James Moon was warden there.

A quartet from the Warrensburgh Methodist Episcopal Church choir, Charles and Carrie Lavery, Mrs. Percy Hall and Milon U. Brown sang two selections at the funeral. Internment was in the family plot in the Warrensburgh Cemetery. (Note...the old farm house of John Moon was located at the corner of Hudson and First streets and his son, warden James Moon and his family lived further up the street. Charles and Carrie Lavery lived across the street in what is today is the home of Dr. Raluca Sandler and Gary Cooper.)
