No, by Moon Men I do not mean lunar beings observed by astronauts who have landed on the moon or by any mechanical device sent to survey it.  In fact, Moon Men is a term used for Bigfoots in Warren and Dekalb Counties in Tennessee.

Anaxagoras, an ancient Greek, assures us there were houses on the Moon.  I don't know how he claimed to have discovered this.  Another personage who felt there were Moon Men was Leonardo Da Vinci.  But I am sure you are asking, What about von Gruithuizen (1774-1852)?  What, indeed?  He claimed to have observed a lunar city.

Incidentally the village of Moone in Ireland has no astronomical connections.

I don't know of any early scientists who claimed they could discern faces on Mars.
