Comments:  

Cary Ann Coleman was born on May 18, 1840, and was the daughter of John Harris Coleman and Sarah Nelson (Nicholas) Coleman of Locust Shades Farm (now called Totier) in Albemarle County, Virginia.  On September 24, 1866, Cary married James Nelson Moon (1836-1898) in Albemarle County Virginia.  James was the son of John Digges Moon and Elizabeth (Barclay) Moon and a Civil War veteran.  To learn more about James' Civil War service, visit James Nelson Moon, Mosby's Rangers.

Cary and James lived at Shirland, which adjoined the Locust Shades property where Cary was born. It was Cary's share of the Coleman family property, and she and James built their house, called Shirland, in 1870.  The original house, built of heart pine timber cut on the land, was four rooms (two over two) with one chimney with four flues --- a fireplace in each room.  This home's entrance was to the right of the front porch to a large hall with stairway at the rear.  An addition was added to the house in 1895 and consisted of four additional rooms to the right of the entry hall and stairway.  Following is a photo of Shirland taken in ca. 1900 with Cary at right and her daughter, Orie, seated at left:

The Shirland farm property remained in the Moon family until Dr. Cary N. Moon sold it in 1986.  This Shirland home is located on a hill near Langhorne Rd. (Rt. 626) just southwest of Totier Creek and on the northwest outskirts of Scottsville.

Cary Ann (Coleman) Moon and James Nelson Moon were the parents of the following children:  Orie Lewis Moon (1868-1938), Mary Barclay Moon (1870-1943), Lindsay Coleman Moon (1872-1895), Frank Russell Moon (1875-1955), Frances Nicholas Moon (1877-1953), Cary Nelson Moon (1880-1953), and Anna Moylin Moon (1883-1968).    James Nelson Moon passed away on September 20, 1898, and his wife, Cary Ann (Coleman) Moon continued living at Shirland where she passed away on December 27, 1920.  James and Cary Moon are buried beside their son, Lindsay, at Scottsville Cemetery in Scottsville, VA; see their gravestone below.
