need Parents of Elias MOODY b.c1771 ME - lived in Webster 1810

Looking for the Parents of Elias Moody who was born 1771 in Maine and by 1810 he was living in Lisbon and then Webster (now called Sabattus) Lincoln Co., Maine.
Elias married Lettice LIBBY in Scarboro, Cumberland Co., ME on Feb. 3, 1799. Her parents were Matthew Libby and his 2nd wife Hannah HASTY who lived in Scarboro.
Lettice's 1/2 brother Rufus Libby and Elias moved to Webster around the same time and were neighbors (from census info). I cannot find out who Elias Moody's Father was. I know he had a sister named Amy Moody who lived in Scarboro because around 1865 being an elderly age, she died when she got too close to the fireplace and her clothes caught fire. I believe there was also a sister named Elizabeth Moody.
Also, Elias and Lettice are most likely the parents of sons William Moody, Samuel Moody and Sewall Moody...but in one of the earlier Webster census they had 4 young sons.
Does anyone know the names of their sons? The IGI records only give a son named Samuel who was born in Lisbon, but the 1850 Webster census shows a William Moody age 40 living next door to Elias and Lettice Moody, and I believe him to be one of their sons.
I know that Webster is now called Sabattus and that Sabattus is now part of Androscoggin Co. rather than Lincoln as it was during the time period I am researching.
I am not sure where to search for this info...Lincoln Co. or Androscoggin Co. Thought I would try both and see if I had any luck.

Any help on this family would be Greatly appreciated.
Thank You for your time.
