UPATE - Just found out that YES, this James MOODY b.c1771 who married Elizabeth TINCH/Tench are part of our Ydna Moody family line. Descendants of this branch ended up in Mahoning Co., OH. James Moody b.c1771 was found in later census' living with various family members, but his age was always the same and he always stated he was born in Delaware. Soldiers of the War of 1812 from OH had this to say - James MOODY, Jr. - 3rd-Pvt. b.1771 d. 1860 buried Boardman Mahoning Co. [OH].
Soldiers of the American Revolution Buried In the State of Ohio on pg. 261 had this entry- James MOODY (Mahoning Co.) Ranger born 1769 d. 1831 buried Boardman Cemetery - farmer Ref.- PA Archives Section 8 Vol 23 pg. 227 - Somers History of Mahoning Co. pg.82
Another entry has the following info: James MOODY - Mahoning Co. born 1771 still living in 1860 [Boardman Census]. Dates found later indicate too young for Rev. War service. Another James may be found for these dates. Reported by Mahoning Chapter.
The Genealogical and Family History of Eastern Ohio Illustrated by Prof. Ewing SUMMERS[poss. reference above? sic Somers History etc.? - YES its on the same page # 82 as listed below] publ. in 1903- has the following bits of info from pg. 82- Warner P. MOODY - Mr. Moody has been the principal of the public school of Struthers, Mahoning Co. [OH] for nearly 15 years, so long a time that manyof those who were his pupils in the first years are now grown to maturity and have children of their own to be educated. ...... His family has been connected with the history of Mahoning Co. for over a century. His Grandfather JAMES MOODY who was of Irish descent was born in 1772 in DELAWARE and came to OH in the early years of the last century. He was a tanner by trade and had his tannery on his 70 acre farm. He married Elizabeth TINCH.....had a large family....both lived to good old age and their remains rest in Boardman township. One of their children - Jackson B. MOODY was born in the fall of 1814. He was a merchant in Poland [Mahoning Co., OH] which was then the principal town on the old stage route between Pittsburg and Cleveland. Youngstown [Mahoning Co.] not being in existence yet. Jackson married Sarah PATRICK who was born in Mahoning Co. in 1830 daughter of Arthur and Elizabth (Bishop) PATRICK. Arthur was of Scotch-Irish descent and born in Co. Antrim, Nor. Ireland. Six sons and two daughters were born of this marriage and grew up and are now living except one son James Arthur MOODY who was a merchant at Youngstown and died at the age of 48 years old leaving 3 sons. Children living of Jackson B. MOODY and Sarah PATRICK are: Elizabeth MOODY, Holmes MOODY, Olive MOODY, Frederick "Fred" R. MOODY, Thaddeus MOODY, Jesse R. [Robert] MOODY and Warner P. MOODY. It says that "the mother of this family..." [Sarah Patrick I am guessing they are referring to], died at age 47 n 1877 and "the father..." [Jackson B. Moody??] died in Aug. 1896. Warner P. MOODY was born in Boardman, Mahoning Co., OH in 1865 was educated in the Poland schools and left the academy at the age of 18 and at age 20 began teaching. On Dec. 30, 1890 he married Miss Mary E. KERR who was born in Mercer, PA and is the daughter of Henry G. and Mary E.(Cozad) KERR. They had 2 sons and 2 daughters but all died in infancy except one daughter Miriam MOODY who was born Dec. 24, 1896. It says they attended the Methodist Church and that Warner was in the possession of two heirlooms which belonged to his grandfather [James Moody b.c1771], a sword and a pistol that was grandfather carried in the War of 1812. It ends with a comment that it is "very probable that other ancestors were in the Revolution].
Here is an entry from the PA Archives 2nd series Vol II of the Provincial Officers and Soldiers 1757-1764 Returns of Capt. Benjamin Noxon's comp. of 1758- James MOODY age 27 b. Ireland -April 22 (enlistment date), tailor (occupation). So if in 1758 this James MOODY was age 27 years old and born in Ireland, that says he was born c.1731 and very well could have been the Father of the James MOODY b.c1771 above of Delaware and Mahoning Co., OH, especially since James above was listed as a "Jr." in one entry. While "Jr." back then didn't necessarily have the same meaning it does today in that James was named directly for his father the "Sr." of the two, it could be something and that is why I mentioned this entry.
At any rate, we now have a Ydna link with a Moody family branch of this Moody line from Boardman, Mahoning Co., OH whose ancestor James A. MOODY (middle name possibly Alexander) was born in DEL. quite possibly from that James MOODY b.c1731 in Ireland. Just wanted to Update this earlier posting in case others are researching these lines too.
