Hello Dennis,
Not trying to horn in on the postings here, but couldn't help have an interest in the James Moody's you found.
I have been searching for AGES for my own James MOODY and consequently Barbara and I are both searching for MOODY's and perhaps from the same family, we don't know yet.

I am searching for a James MOODY who enlisted at Ticonderoga, NY in 1776 with Capt. Daniel LANE's unit.

Capt. Daniel Lane was from Buxton, York Co., district of Maine (or MA however they may refer to it in the old texts).
My own 5th grt. grandfather was a James MOODY who was also in the Rev. War. He ~may~ be the one that enlisted in Buxton, York Co., ME on Aug. 26, 1777, but I cannot determine that because there was yet Another James MOODY who was from Standish/Gorham, Maine who was also in the Rev. War.

The differences are...MY James Moody married in 1774 Buxton, York Co., ME to Elizabeth DONALD (more commonly spelled DONNELL or Dunnell) and they had at least 3 children...Sarah, James, Jr. and Joseph MOODY.
By Sept. 4, 1785, Elizabeth is listed as "widow Elizabeth Moody" on Buxton Church records, so James Moody must have died either as a result of his duty in the Rev., but I don't think so because my 4th grt. grandfather and his son Joseph Moody was born c1782 (per other records I have), and this makes me think that James MOODY must have died sometime after 1782 but before Sept. 1785. I cannot find any cemetery info on him or any other info. for that matter.

The James MOODY of Standish/Gorham who was also in the Rev. War, and could be the one who enlisted at Buxton, ME, also married an Elizabeth only her last name was SHAW. They settled in Standish, Cumberland Co., Maine (which is fairly near to Buxton, York Co.), and they had several children. THIS James Moody however, didn't die until 1818, and he died in Standish.

Ironically there is still yet Another James MOODY who was born c1745 in Newmarket, NH and was a Rev. War soldier who may be one of the ones you listed on your message, and he was a son of the Rev. John MOODY and his wife Ann[e] HALL.
This James Moody appears to have died After 1804 however per info I've been given so I don't think he is my 5th grt. grandfather.

I know this is a lot of info, but if you happen to see any other James MOODY's with any connections to Buxton, York Co., Maine or you can find out who that James Moody of Ticonderoga, NY was, that would be Great news for me.
Thank You for your help and for letting me squeeze in here to your Postings.
