Satira's parents were William Fallass (b. 1804) and Wealthy Winslow (b. 1805). All of William's and Wealthy's children (Mary Jenet, William Albert, Alphleda Jane, Orlando, John Emery, Satira and Edwin) were born on a farm near Aetna, Dryden Twp., Tompkins Co., N.Y. In 1845 the family moved to Michigan in covered wagons.
After Wealthy died in 1854, William married Elizabeth "Betsey" Burgess McKee; they had two daughters, Ellen Elizabeth and Ermina May. When William and Betsey died within 12 days of each other, Satira, then 24, reared her half-sisters, five-year-old Ellen and two-year-old Ermina.
Satira married Wilber H. Moon on Nov. 8, 1865. According to Lura F. Alexander in her Fallass Geneology, "This splendid couple lived near Fallassburg, on a beautiful farm, with large peach orchards, which was a hospitable resort for all the relatives. Theirs was a refined and happy household, and to the end they maintained a keen interest in politics, religion, and the younger generations. All the children received college educations."
The children were Myrtle Alice (b. 1865), Frank Albert (b. 1867), Cora Alphleda (b. 1869; graduated from Medical School, Northwestern University, Chicago, in 1900; University of Berlin and University of Vienna in 1907-8; and Harvard Graduate School of Medicine in 1913; she remained unmarried), and Lucia Ellura (b. 1871).
