Famous relative:

Hattie Lee Close Crouch's 3rd great-grandfather was James Money (Mooney Monnet.)From Gene Perkins: "James Money was one of four men who first walked into Kentucky with Daniel Boone." James Money was the surveyor. On their 3rd trip into Kentucky, the group was attacked by Indians. Boone and Money were the only two who survived and escaped. James Money was given a large tract of land in Kentucky for his services. One of his many descendants, also named James Money, still lives there today." In Part VII of "First Settlers of Ye Plantations of Piscataway and Woodbridge, Olde Last New Jersey, 1664-1714," which was published in 1935 after his visit to Kentucky, Orra Monnette wrote this conclusion: "He was called both James Money and James Mooney, as testified by descendants, living at this date in both Green and Shelby Counties, Kentucky, and he lies buried in an old farm burial place, near Coakley, Green County, Kentucky." A historical marker on the fence around his grave states that he was the companion of Daniel Boone in 1769 and held the job of surveyor for the expedition.
