Looking for MOON of Georgia

ANNIE E MOON, (born June 1867, d. 1953) married GEORGE W. LANDERS. They are the great grandparents of my husband Ron Barker.
Annie is daughter of of JESSE M. MOON (1828-1891)and MARTHA [WHITE] 1830- ?
JESSE is the son of JOHN W. MOON (1802-1876)and HARRIET L. COLE (1797-1843). Jesse, John W. and Harriet all died in Cobb County GA. John and Harriet are buried in the Moon family cemetery in Cobb County, GA, which is catalogued on Find a a Grave.com. I feel comfortable with this information using primary sources. I have found secondary sources through ancestry.com that trace them back to JOHN and MARY FARMER MOON in Randolph Co., North Carolina, he being born there Aug 4, 1717, and she probably being born there. They married in 1735, both died in Randolph county, and are buried in the MOON family cemetery in Randolph County. This information also cites a visit by Corinne Palko of Oak Ridge TN to Fallsington PA stating that John is descended from JAMES MOON JR. and his second wife AGNES PRIESTLY.

The information I have shows the following ancestry for ANNIE MOON: parents JESSE MOON (MALE ANCESTORS JOHN WILLINGHAM, JESSE, THOMAS, JOHN) and MARTHA MARTIN WHITE,(JESSE and MARTHA married Dec 7, 1847 in Elbert County, GA.

Does anyone have primary sources of the parenthood of each of these ancestors and on the move to GA? The information I have is that THOMAS MOON moved to Georgia between his birth in 1742 and his death in Columbia County, GA in 1808.

Any information you are willing to share would be wonderful. My husband and I will be in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia in July and I would like to visit as many sites as we can where the Moon ancestors were located.

Thank you in advance.
