In Reply to: Re: REVOLUTIONARY WAR-ROCKINGHAM MEN by Barbara Greger of 638

Hi Barbara,

I found some Rev War stuff on a John Moody. I suspect there are two of them due to the facts that there are two different signings of the Association Test. and one is a Capt. the other a private. One is from Newmarket and one is from Gilmanton, NH. The James Moody I found yesterday was from Newmarket, so I would asume that a relationship must exist between James and John of Newmarket. The Gilmanton John is no doubt a relative.

1. John Moody signed the Association Test for the town of Gilmanton, NH on Aug. 28, 1776.

2. John Moody signed the Association Test for the town of Newmarket, NH on July 12, 1776.

3. Capt. John Moody listed as in command of the 12th company in Gilmanton under Col. Joseph Badger's Regiment of Militia, 1776.

4. Capt. John Moody listed as in command of a company for muster and payroll on Sept. 25, 1776 which was raised in Col. Badger's & Col. Stickney's Regiments to reinforce the Continental Army at New York, 1776. This company would be under Col. Baldwin's Regiment. A note states Capt. Moody was of Gilmanton.

5. Private John Moody in a Pay Roll of Capt. Nathan Ambrose's company in Col. Welch's Regiment which marched from Moultonborough and towns adjacent Sept. 30, 1777 and joined the Continental Army under General Gates at Saratoga. And after the surrender of General Burgoyne, marched with the gurad as far as North Hampton in the Stae of Massachusetts Bay and were there discharged. John Moody is listed as entered company on October 2, 1777 and discharged Nov 5, 1777.

6. Found was a petition of Capt. John Moody (quote)
" To the Honourable Council and House of Representatives of the State of NH in General Court Convened---- The petition of Capt. John Moody of Gilmanton-- Humbly sheweth that in the month of December in the year 1777 he and the company of Militia under his command being part of Col. Nahum Baldwin's Regiment from this State were regular discharged being then at North Castle in the State of NY that on his return home sundry of the the officers and soldiers belonging to said company were in such poor state of health that they were not able to traviel and being without money to help themselves with whereupon your memorialist left Lt. Josiah Sanborn at the town of Redding in the State of Connecticut also left Serjant Joseph March to attend on the above mentioned sick and returned his selfe to Gilmanton and procured money to pay the expences of the above said officers & men and immediatly set out after them the account of the cost and expences I herewith transmit--wherefor your memorialist prays for himself as well as for the men that you will take the matter under consideration & order such pay for himself and men with the expences as in your great wisdom shall appear just--and your petitioner as in duty bound shall ever pray. Signed Gilmanton February ye 15th 1778 John Moody Capt."

This is all Rev war info I have on the Moody names you gave me. Of course there is much more about what the regiments did and where they went. This would take much more research of history.

All the data came from Rolls of the Soldiers in the Revolutionary War, Vols. 1-4 Compiled and edited by Isaac W. Hammond, published in Concord NH by the State of NH 1886.

I will also look at other materials that I have regarding Rockingham county to see what we can learn there. I have ammassed a pretty nice refrence lib. as my family was in the same area as early as 1718.
