I was happy to find your message.I believe I am also related to this Moody family. Jesse Moody is my 4th great grandfather.From information I have gathered, it appears he was the son of Richard Moody (not 100% sure about this yet). In the 1850 census, Jesse is listed separately from Richard, but next door to Jesse Coward, who I have found is the father of Mahala.Mahala is Richard's wife, and would be Jesse's mother.
Jesse married Sarah Holland and had the following children: Augusta William L Emma Georgia Elizabeth James C John Richard Charles Wigfall Jesse Gregg
Georgia Elizabeth Moody is my 3rd great grandmother. She married Pickens H Morris and that is where my Moody line ends.
