My mother said she was the youngest daughter of her fathers 18 children..I can account for only 14..perhaps he &First wife Martha Peavey Flournoy Moody ad children...I haven't found them four sure but hope to.
My mother Katie Louise Moody Wright told me her father did marry sisters..step sisters. also Catherine and Greenes fathers were brothers, they were John & Sylvanus sons of Riley Moody & Mary Thomas. John and Jemima Whitley were Greenes parents and Sylvanus m Margaret BETTS. If the 1860 census is right John and Sylvanus were bothe the same age...Twins?
