Ossipee Valley Cemetery, New Hampshire

Today I was taking photos in the Ossipee Valley Cemetery in Ossipee, New Hampshire. I wondered if anyone could shed some light on this curious situation. Clement Moody, who died July 24, 1858 ( who was the son of one of the Jonathans and his death record (New Hampshire Death Records, 1654-1947 at states, Elsa was his mother's name ) is buried there and I know who he is.
I also know that the gravestone to his direct right is that of Mary "Polly" Cooley, his wife. She died Sept. 22, 1863 at the age of 77. Directly to her left is a gravestone that reads, "Dolly Moody, Died Feb.18, 1869 AE. 58" Do we know who THIS Dolly Moody was? If the answer is in the community archives I apologize, I couldn't find it.
That would make her born around 1811 and that isn't so far off from Clement's other children, Acherson in 1808, George W. in 1813, Joseph A. in 1821 and Bartlett in 1824. That's pure conjecture on my part. That she was buried right there so close to Clement and Mary seems significant. The New Hampshire records, now on FamilySearch, are pretty amazing, but I couldn't find a Dolly. Any ideas anyone? Thanks for reading this! There are a lot of Moodys here in New Hampshire to sort out.
