Re: Mudie's who don't match ydna to each

Cheers David,
Good to hear from you again. I know your family and our Ydna Moody's are related, however your Cowan name obviously and the Moody's won't share any ydna but I know on paper (genealogically) our Moody's are from the branch which we have proven via documented genealogy and now via Ydna matching as well, so we have established that we are truly all part of our ever growing Ydna Moody family tree (grin).
Yes, that is true, we do have that your Moody's (possibly early on, once spelled MUDIE as we found an Alexander MUDIE and an Edward MUDIE in the earliest records of the Ballykelly Presbyterian Church records, who both were from Magilligan, Co. L'derry, Nor. Ireland, whose children were baptized in this church in the earliest years of the 1700's).
I believe this was possibly how your family at one time over in Scotland spelled their name but of course we have no solid proof of that as yet because the only 2 males of the spelling of the name MUDIE that I am aware of that have been Ydna tested, do not match to us Nor to each other nor to any other MOODY's of any spelling of our name, so an obvious Oooops took place in their family tree somewhere and those males were not born of a true Mudie/Moodie/Moody at least so far as they can prove via Ydna test results. This is why I say it would be great to have More of the Known male born Scottish MUDIE's and MOODIE's to do the Ydna tests.
Anyway, good to hear from you again and if you ever stumble across anything that might help us to find our particular branch of our early Moody's (of any spelling) in Scotland, even an area or region where they might have come from would be a huge help. Right now all I have is that they came from Fifeshire which is not part of the Highlands.
I have another ydna cousin who says they were from the Dundee region which is still not part of the Highlands (I don't think, but is at least on the same side of the country as Fifeshire where a proven line of our Ydna Moody's may have come from).
Take care David and do stay in touch.
