Here is still a bit more regarding these Buxton, ME families my Moody line married into.
From an Oct. 1761 Narragansett township (now called Buxton), record where some of the townsmen were requesting in favor of the Rev. Paul COFFIN coming to town to be their new minister, it was signed by John DONNELL, Benj. DONNELL (quite poss. my 6th grt. grandfather as he didn't die until After 1760), and Ebenezer REDLON (Harrison G. REDLON's who married my Affie H. MOODY, grt. grt. grandfather).
So my family in Buxton would have known these REDLON's very well.
Another interesting tid bit I just found is that Ebenezer REDLON served in the same Rev. War regt. as my James MOODY did.
I have just found a bit of support in that this is most likely MY James Moody in this Regt. and here is why I say so...
The James MOODY of Standish, Cumb. Co., ME who was a brother of Joshua Moody of Baldwin, ME who also served in this regt., the brothers, sons of Joshua Moody the Justice of the Peace of Falmouth/Portland, ME and Tabitha COX, that James of Standish was said to have enlisted on Aug. 26, 1777, I have seen this from a commemortaive booklet done on Buxton many years ago. This James Moody of Standish, ME was said to have been born in Cape Co., MA and married to Elizabeth SHAW. James died in Standish, ME in 1818.

My James enlisted into Capt. Daniel Lane's comp./Col. Ichabod Aden's 6th MA Continental Army at Ticonderoga, NY on Dec. 1, 1776 and served for 160 weeks 6 days and was released. My James Moody died sometime Between c1781 and Sept. 4, 1785.
The info on the James Moody of Standish is from the DAR records.
My James info comes from the MA Sailors and Soldier's Vol. 10 and the Buxton Historical Society's old records as well as the DAR records which I have from copied from someone who descended from one of the female lines.

Ebenezer REDLON who served in the same regt. died during his time of service on May 5, 1777. He was only in 9 months and 4 days.

Also from the old Biddeford, York Co., ME Congregational Church records - Magnus RIDLEN (spelled that way) was being accepted into the Cong. Ch. from another church (doesn't say from where or give any dates, but it appears to be around or before 1742). Then by around c1777/78 Magnus RIDLEN a member of Full Communion was dismissed from this church at Biddeford and recommended to the Communion of other churches.

From the Baptism registers of the church at Biddeford -
Feb. 19, 1756 - Ann and Ebenezer daug. and son of Ebenezer and Sarah RIDLEN. So this could give some support that Ebenezer REDLON did indeed marry Sarah YOUNG in Biddeford in 1751. Bapt. Jonathan RIDLEN Apr. 17, 1757 son of Ebenezer and Sarah RIDLEN.
From the Congregational Church records in Buxton, York Co., ME comes the following:
Marriage - Ebenezer REDLON (spelled that way now) and Sarah HANCOCK both of Buxton married Feb. 17, 1780 by the Rev. Paul Coffin.
Baptism records from same church-
Sept. 7, 1788- ISAAC, Amos, Mary and Joanna children of Ebenezer REDLON and Sarah his wife. On Jan. 25, 1789 daug. "Mercy" was baptized in this church daug. of Ebenezer REDLON and Sarah.
Well that helps to verify a few of these links.
I'll keep working on this and be back with more as come across them.
