may be a silly question but I gotta ask it...Re- Micmac Indians
Posted by: melissa1 (ID *****3873) Date: June 04, 2003 at 15:48:14

I have searched high and low for my lineage line and cannot get beyond my 5th grt. grandfather James Moody who was a Rev. War soldier. However, there was a James Moody in Louisburg in Oct. 1745 and although I doubt it is My James who was born about that time (1745 to about 1754), I am not discounting anything.
My family were Micmac/Passamaquoddy Indians who came to Maine from Canada. I have been told that they ~probably~ changed their surname TO Moody. It is likely that their French name may have been Mondoux or Moudoux or some form of that. There is also speculation that it might have been Thomas or as it is spelled by the Indians....TOMAH.
Does Anyone here know if the Micmac Indians had any involvement in the battles at Louisburg and if so what?
I know that during the Rev. War Gen. George Washington appointed a John ALLAN as an Indian Agent to go into Canada and recruit the Micmac Indians to help us out as reinforcements. Several of the Micmac men did fight on our side. I was just wondering if anything like that might have happened during the Louisburg seige.
Anything at all greatly appreciated. Thank You.
