In Reply to: James MOODY b.c1859? Kings Co., Nova Scotia m. twice I think... by melissa1 of 11576

Just an Update to this last posting. As I was reading over these Vital Records that I have regarding these MOODY's of Kings Co., Nova Scotia...the Death Record of the John MOODY that I mentioned near the last of the post, has now caused me to wonder if his Father James MOODY wasn't married prior to Love PERRY.
The reason I say this is because after reviewing what I ~thought~ was solid genealogy in regards to James MOODY and Love PERRY's children and the Dates of the Births of their children, as related to the Marriage record I have of James & Love which clearly says they were married on July 12, 1863 in Cornwallis, Kings Co., Nova Scotia.
Well according the genealogy I have, their children's names were: Ellen; Perry; Edward, William (supposedly born in 1854 which obviously Pre-Dates his parents marriage so Something is Incorrect here); Nancy, Holmes and John MOODY b. Nov. 1863 in Kings Co., Nova Scotia which should indicate that he was his parents first born child given their marriage date of July 1863, and that obviously Love Perry was pregnant with this son John when she was married.
So, I just wanted to post this in case anyone can shed some light on this couple. I am off to do more research on this James MOODY and Love PERRY.
I have that James' parents were Israel MOODY (son of our Ydna ancestor - Alexander MOODY and his wife Priscilla DICK of Lenamore/Magilligan, Co. L'derry, Nor. Ireland). So my thoughts are that perhaps this James Moody was married earlier to someone else and that some of these earlier born children were from that 1st marriage and the others from Love PERRY.
I do have the following Birth Records on these children born to James MOODY and Love PERRY:
James Everett MOODY b. Nov. 12, 1868 at Harborville, Kings Co., Nova Scotia - Parents listed as James MOODY a farmer and Levinia [sic? Lavinia?] PERRY and their marriage date is given as July 15, 1862 in Aylesford, Kings Co., Nova Scotia on their sons birth record, but again that differs slightly from the actual Marriage Record I have for this couple.
Perry MOODY age 27 farmer b. in Harborville son of James and "Lovey" was married in Harborville at a Baptist church on Dec. 4, 1895 to Florence VAUGHN who also age 27 daug. of Nathan and Caroline VAUGHN. Witnesses were Edward CHUTE and his wife who also a nee MOODY as I have their marriage record too. If I recall it was Ellen MOODY who married Edward CHUTE which Ellen was Perry Moody's sister.
And lastly John MOODY whose Death Record gives his Birthdate as Nov. 20, 1863 and that he was born in Harborville and that his parents were James MOODY born in IRELAND ???, and Love PERRY b. _______. The informant again of John's death was his sister Nancy (Moody) GOULD.
I find it odd that Nancy didn't know where her mother was born...IF indeed Lavinia "Love" PERRY was her mother.
Nancy might have been a daughter of James's 1st wife?? IF this is the case that he was married prior to Love Perry.
That's all for now, I'm off to try and find out more about this James Moody and Love Perry.
