Re: James Moody// not my James...thanks anyway

In Reply to: James Moody by Carol Sellers of 11593

Hi Carol,
Yes, there is a LOT of Incorrect data out there concerning my family line. Some of it stemmed by me making assumptions of my family connections, before we did the ydna test.
Fortunately the Ydna test solved those Eons of mysteries once and for all as it turned out my line links to None of the New England branches of Moody's.
We have NO idea where my James Moody came from Except for the fact that he shares Ydna with the early Mudie's/Moodie's/Moody's of Nor. Ireland who came there from Scotland.
Thank you so much anyway, for trying to help, but I have been searching for my particular branch of the Moody's for 30 yrs. now and I mean pretty solidly for the majority of those 30 yrs. when my Nana handed me over her books and histories on the family genealogy in her kitchen one day while I was visiting her in 1981. I've been at it ever since, only to run into stumbling block after stumbling block. Just when I thought I had finally found my branch, someone would come along and burst the balloon with some form of Proof that that could Not be my line because....and they'd have documentation.
Well, come foward 20 some odd yrs. and Ydna testing finially showed that we did Not belong to the John, William or Clement MOODY lines of New England.
I have the One solid match to the MOODY family of Kings Co., Nova Scotia whose line also goes back to a James MOODY b.c1755 who married Sarah BAKER and they supposedly came to Nova Scotia after the Acadia Exiles of 1755 and took over lands there. The family claims to have a deed from New Jersey but they've never found it again, and so I have no further info or details about Where in NJ their James Moody came from, but we do know it is NOT linked to the Lt. James Moody the British spy who was from Little Egg Harbor, NJ, because we do Not match Ydna to his branch either which also hails originally from England, even though that Lt. James Moody's family ended up in Nova Scotia as well, so far there is no links via intermarriages or again via Genetics.
Thanks again for your help though, I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know.
I keep hoping that one day, someone might come across something that will lead me to the real identity of my James Moody or the James MOODY of Nova Scotia to whom I share exact ydna with. Even that would be a Huge Help.
Take care and as always my best to you in your own research.
