I am searching for the Parents of Elias MOODY who was born 1771 in Maine who married on Feb. 3, 1799 in Scarboro, Cumberland Co., Maine to Lettice Libby daughter of Matthew Libby and his 2nd wife Hannah HASTY.
Lettice's 1/2 brother Rufus Libby and Elias Moody his brother-in-law, moved to Lisbon, Lincoln Co., ME by 1810.
Thereafter they were enumerated in Webster, Lincoln Co., in the census'.
Elias Moody had a sister named Amy Moody who lived in Scarboro, and at an elderly age was burned to death when she stood too close to a fireplace and her clothes caught fire. There might also have been a sister named Elizabeth Moody that lived with Amy but I can't confirm this as yet.
I also believe that from the 1850 Webster, Lincoln Co., census (now called Sabattus, Androscoggin Co.), that the William Moody living next door to Elias and Lettice is his son. William is age 40 and a farmer just like Elias who is age 79.
William Moody married Eliza WEYMOUTH and they had several children...2 sons Joseph F. Moody and Charles S. Moody who are both buried in the Leeds Cemetery in Leeds, Androscoggin Co., ME.
If anyone has any info at all about who Elias Moody's Father or Parents were, I would be Most Grateful to you for the information.
Elias Moody and Lettice Libby had 4 young sons in one of the earlier Webster census'. I believe that 3 of their sons were William, Sewall and Samuel MOODY. Who the 4th one was I do not know, but in the very early census' there are 3 Moody men enumerated in Webster or it might have been Lisbon....Elias, Samuel and Nathan Moody. I do not know if there is a connection there or not.
I know that a Nathan Moody of Lewiston came to Maine from England and I don't think there is any connection to Elias and that Nathan, but I could be wrong.
That is why I'm here, hoping to learn more about this Elias Moody and his family.
Thank You for anything at all.
