You're most welcome Scott. We are in the "beige" section of the Ydna project and my Brick Wall is my 5th grt. grandfather James MOODY born sometime I Guess between c1745 and c1750 but no later than c1755. He married in Jan. 1774 to my 5th grt. grandmother and Scottish woman, Elizabeth DONALD (spelled more commonly as Donnell). That is as far back as I can get on my family tree. Before I pass I would really like to know where my James came from. We link and match at various levels of Ydna to others whose Moody's have come from Scotland to Nor. Ireland and then on to various places around the globe from Canada to New Zealand and our earliest proven via Ydna research Ancestors were of Norwegian race who probably then landed at some point in Scotland etc. Our earliest known and proven MOODY ancestor to date remains that of Thomas MOODY b.c1710 in/of Aghadowey, Co. L'derry, Nor. Ireland who married 1st to Jean McCUISTON/McQuiston.Who Thomas' family was, no one has been able to determine as yet. We only know that so far none of our now dozen Ydna tested MOODY's, match or share any Ydna with any of the numerously tested Moody's from England. They also however do not share any Ydna with the Very Few Scottish Moodie's/Mudie's who have been ydna tested, but on the other hand, they in turn match to NO Other Moody's of any spellings either.Very intriguing and frustrating to say the least.
Okay, enough of all that, when I viewed your branch on the Ydna results, I noticed the Benjamin name. Looking at the 1850 Chesterfield Co., VA census I found the following: Benjamin MOODY age 68 (b.c1782) farmer b. VA Martha age 59 Benjamin age 23 (b.c1827) Sarah F. 19 Martha A. 17 and Onslow B. LEWIS age 4 b. VA (or at least that's what his name looks like, very light pen and copy and hard to read this census). NEXT DOOR was a James A. MOODY age 33 farmer b. VA and Frances age 28 and William MOODY age 10 all b. VA, so no doubt an older son of the above Benjamin's. On the very Next Page of this census was a Mary MOODY head of house age 56 and a Jane COX age 34, Martha A. COX age 14 and a David B. COX age 12 all b. VA living with her.
1860 Manchester, Chesterfield Co., VA census B. A. MOODY age 34 constable b. VA T.L. MOODY (female) age 30 b. VA Jno. (Jonathan or John) B. MOODY age 3 b. VA and Virginia Moody age 1 b. VA ************************************** Hope this is helpful to you somehow. Take care.
