Thanks to someone else for finding this Marriage info which in turn led me to search out the Census data...hope this further helps those researching this line of MOODY's from Cashel/Camm/, Co. L'derry, Nor. Ireland.
Marriage record from New Bedford, MA dated June 4, 1896 gives Thomas J. Moody's age as 24 (so b.c1872) parents as Hugh Gage MOODY and Rebecca CASKEY his wife as "Della" Gregory and her parents as Samuel Gregory and Annie McDonald. Della was age 21 so b.c1875.
It was the first marriage for both and Thomas' job was listed as salesman. Della was listed as being born in Canada and Thomas of course in Ireland. They were married by a Rev. W. J. Reynolds in New Bedford.
I then looked them up in the Census records and found the following info:
1900 Denver, Arapahoe Co., Colorado dated June 5th, they lived on Evans St.
Thomas J. MOODY b. Jan 1871 age 28 married 4 yrs. b. Ireland Ireland Ireland (that means both parents born there too) immigrated in 1891 occupation - salesman
Isabella[Note her name spelling here] wife age 25 b. March 1875 2 children 2 children living b. Canada (English Canada as were both of her parents)
Rebecka Moody daug. b. Aug. 1897 age 2 b. MA, Ire, CAN (so she was named no doubt for Thomas' mother Rebecca Anne Caskey)
Hellen Moody - daug. b. May 1899 age 1 yr. b. MA Ire Can.
1910 Denver, Denver Co., CO (note county name changed) date April 25th lived on Adams St.
Thomas J. MOODY age 37 married 14 yrs. 1st marriage, b. Ire, Ire, Ire.- immigrated in 1888 - traveling salesman for a dry goods company
Idella (note wife's name changed from Isabella earlier, probably an entry error by census taker as we know her name was "Della" from marriage record above) wife age 34 1st marriage b. Canada(English- poss. Nova Scotia) as are both parents - 5 kids 5 living
Rebecca A. MOODY daug. 12 b. MA
Helen G. Moody daug. age 11 b. MA (middle name prob. GAGE or Gregory)
Mildred J. 8 b. CO.
Harold G. age 3 (middle name probably Gage or Gregory) b. CO
and Thomas J. son age 1 b. CO
1930 Denver, Denver Co., CO date April 9th still living on Adams St.
Thomas J. MOODY age 57 -widow- b. Nor. Ireland, No. Ire, No. Ire.(he distinguishes this time that his family was from North Ireland) immigrated in 1878 still not naturalized - commercial traveler for a men's furnishings company.
and Thomas J. MOODY, Jr. - son age 21 single, b. CO, N. Ire, Canada with same occupation.
So by 1930 Idella (Della) Thomas, Sr's wife had died. Probably all of their other children had married by this time as Thomas, Jr. is now age 21.
Again this line comes from a supposed Henry MOODY who came over from Scotland to a son Thomas MOODY who m. Mary GAGE to son Matthew MOODY who married Rebecca Anne CASKEY etc. This family was from Cashel/Camm and Coleraine, Co. L'derry, Nor. Ireland.
Hope this helps and that I didn't make any typo's.
