I am searching for info on the Jennet (Janet) EKIN/EAKIN who married David/Daniel MOODY in March 1763 prob. in or near the White Clay Hundred, DE area or perhaps in PA. My 5th grt. grandfather James MOODY b.c1750 (but possibly several years Earlier but Not later than c1755) appears out of nowhere in York Co., Maine when he married my 5th grt. grandmother Elizabeth DONALD (also seen spelled Donnell and Dunnell in Maine but she was of Scottish heritage), in Jan. of 1774. Recent Ydna evidence appears to be showing us that our Moody gene pool has some link to the Moody's who married into the Ledlie and Ekin families of the Pittsburgh, PA area and some of who moved to OH. We are having a difficult time finding solid records of these families however and I'm hoping perhaps someone here might be able to help. A James MOODY appears in the 1850 Boardman, Mahoning Co., OH census at age 78 (so b. c1772) and he states he was born in Delaware. He is living with an apparent son named James C. MOODY age 40 (so b.c1810)in OH and family. Also one of James other sons is living there too, his name is Jackson B. MOODY age 35 (b.c1815) merchant b. OH.
I think there may be a connection with these families but cannot find it at the moment. Perhaps someone here can help me. Thank you for any info at all.
