John Diggs Moon and Elizabeth lived in 1838 in Mt. Ary, Albemarle, Virginia; purchased from the Gilmers at the request of Gov. George Gilmer [Records of Albemarle Co., Deed book 30, p. 199]; land known as the mountain tract and contained 1417 acres. Gov. Gilmer (Secretary of the Navy) is buried there. Located on the Hardware River, six miles from Scottsville and 15 miles south of Charlottesville. Built about the time of the Revolution, no longer standing in 1939. On each side of the house were planted locust trees to represent an army of soldiers facing each other. The beautiful backyard ended in a bluff which went down to the Hardware River. Numerous family portraits hung on the walls of Mount Ary. Among them were the portraits of John D. Moon and wife and his daughter, Lucy Reid. three of these portraits, well preserved, are in the possession of relatives. Since no member of the family has the other two, it is thought that they were stolen from Mt. Ary. The family graveyard is on the estate, but about two miles to the right of the house when facing the front.
