Thomas, just found a note I made under Daniel Moody's name that the Source of the info for Daniel and Esther's children came from Barbara GREGER several years back now, who had a book called The History of Raymond, NH by Joseph Fullerton publ. 1875. Also in these notes I have that Daniel Moody lived near the residence of John BROWN, Esq. (I think there was some turmoil between these two men as I recall about Daniel not paying some lumber debts owed to Mr. Brown...it may be posted on here somewhere) Also that Daniel was killed at the saw mill in Freetown, NH (1804...if that was the Griffith's Mill then we have possibly have the link to the Mary Moody who I mentioned who married Thomas DUDLEY). Daniel was a Rev. War soldier and then I have a question in these notes asking if This Daniel was married first to a Mary MERRILL in 1756??
It is very possible after Daniel's death and then certainly after Esther's death that Levi 2 would have been taken in by family members and perhaps that is precisely how he ended up in Nobleboro/Waldoboro area. Anyway hope this helps some.
