  • Biography*: William Bird Moon received his medical education at the Louisville Medical Institute, now the University of Kentucky Medical College. He began practicing in 1845. In 1851, he moved with his family to Tallapoosa County, AL. He continued his medical practice in Tallapoosa County, and was the physician who attended the last illness of William Wynn Smith in 1863 and 1864. In 1872, he moved to the community of Rose Bud, in White County, AR, where he continued to practice medicine until his death. On March 25, 1890, he was returning from a hunting trip, and after riding his horse into his yard, he dismounted at the yard gate and propped his shotgun against the fence. It fell over, discharged and instantly killed Dr. Moon when the blast of the shot hit him in the head.

    The following is from Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Eastern Arkansas:
