I am searching for more info on this couple. I have found some very brief details about them on line and from old out of print books on Boardman, Mahoning Co., OH, but other than that, I've found nothing further. What I have seen is that a James MOODY (Mudie?/Moodie?) b. 1772 in Delaware married an Elizabeth TINCH and they had a son (they had more children, but this one is at least traceable in the Census'), Jackson Bruce MOODY b. 1814 in OH who married SArah PATRICK daughter of ARthur and Elizabeth (Bishop) PATRICK. What is Extremely ironic to me about this couple is that I believe this James MOODY's line may tie into one of our proven Ydna Moody (genetic cousins) family tree who was also in OH. The other interesting fact is that our Moody's are now proven to have come over from Scotland. They are NOT of the English lines of the commonly spelled MOODY family trees even though our name is spelled that way. Our Moody branches went from Scotland to Nor. Ireland in the 1600's and we believe that is how our name became spelled in the more common English fashion. However, the earliest record we have found that pertains to one of our other proven Ydna Moody cousins lines is that of an Alexander MUDIE whose daughter was being baptized in the BAllykelly Presbyterian Church in Co. L'derry, Nor. Ireland. This Alexander MUDIE had a brother or relative named Joseph MUDIE whose son Edward MUDIE was being baptized in this same church in Aug. of 1706. Both men (Alexander and Joseph MUDIE) were noted in the church records as being "of Magilligan".Magilligan, Co. Londonderry, Nor. Ireland is precisely where one of our Ydna Moody cousins family came from. Their earliest known ancestor also named Alexander MOODY (Mudie) b.c1746 married a Priscilla DICK and they were of Lenamore/Magilligan, Co. L'derry, Nor. Ireland. They had at least 2 sons John MOODY who m. Mary HOPKINS and Israel MOODY who married Elizabeth CASKEY/Caskie/McCaskey etc. and this couple eventually removed to Kings Co., Nova SCotia where I have an exact matching Ydna MOODY family.
After having said all of this, I have a copy of a book on the MOODIE family of Hoy, Orkney simply entitled The Moodie Book publ. in 1906 and written by the Marquis of Ruvigny and Raineval whose mother was a MOODIE. In this book under the family of John Wedderburn Dunbar MOODIE of Melsetter House in Orkney who removed to Belleville, Ontario, CAN with his wife and family, one of his daughters married a VICKERS and one of their sons John Alexander Dunbar VICKERS b. May 1858 in Toronto, CAN married an Ellen Florence TENCH (spelled that way) who was a daughter of William TENCH. They had 2 sons and a daughter (names not given however).
So, I believe this TINCH/Tench surname must be an Orkney name as I've not seen it anywhere else except associated with the Orkney families. This gives me hope that PERHAPS this early James MOODY in Delaware, USA, may have been a descendant of the Orkney family as well. I have long maintained our link to the Moodie's/Mudie's of Orkney (Mudie as I've been told is the older spelling of our name, some lines kept that spelling and others adopted the Moodie spelling). Anyway, we know pretty much Know from solid genealogy and ydna proof that these are part of our Moody/Moodie/Mudie family tree so these families are important to me and I am hoping someone here can help me and provide further details. Thank You and pardon my lengthy post but I felt the background might be helpful.
