I was doing some research on other folks who share the same "I1d-N"(Norse)-(as Dr. Nordtvedt has us categorized)
and noticed these ancestors from others who share the same L22+ P109-; as we do too...
for instance MacDonald from the Isle of Skye
Gordon from NH
Henderson from Clan Gunn of Caithness (is "I1d" but may not be exactly same as we are but from around the same area of Scotland where Bishop William MOODIE was from when serving at Dornoch Cathedral in the 1400's and whose brother Gilbert was in Ayrshire where he had ties to the CALDWELL's to whom the Jackson family that we know we have ties to came from prior to heading over to Co. L'derry, Nor. Ireland)
several from Norway and Sweden of course and many other very interesting surnames.
I find it very interesting that the John GORDON mentioned of NH and Maine shares the same HaploType as my MOODY's do and that of our Alexander MOODY b.c1746 in/of Lenamore/Magilligan, Nor. Ireland whose family was also said to have come originally from the area of either Dundee or Dunfermline (Fifeshire), Scotland prior to.
My own earliest known ancestor my 5th grt. grandfather James MOODY b.c1745 who appears on record in York Co., ME for the first time that I am aware of who married my 5th grt. grandmother Elizabeth DONALD (also of Clan DONALD of Scotland), in Jan. 1774, and my James Moody that I can find no further info about at all as to his family or where he came from originally etc.
However the fact that he shares the same HaploType with the Gordon family of NH/ME is of great interest to me because I believe this to be the same Gordon family who has ties to the Edward MOODY line of NH that went to Corinna, Penobscot Co., ME and whose descendants are still living in ME but we do not have a Ydna sample of that branch (that I know of) to definitively place them into any known MOODY haplotype(category) so far.
It would be great to finally know just where that branch of the Moody's fit in. Do they Really belong to the Clement Moody group of Exeter, NH from the 1600's or did this branch just intermarry with them and they are only connected by Relationship?
Or is this Edward MOODY line of NH to ME of an entirely different group of MOODY's and one to whom my own James might fit in? This branch of the Moody's could be the missing key to unlock all of those who have thought they tied in to the Clement line wide open! Or it may prove otherwise.
I just thought this was an interesting observation at any rate and wanted to share this.
