Oh wow, so you are sort of matching up to one of the obscure lines of Maine that if my memory hasn't failed me too badly, doesn't have a close match, or maybe they do by now. However, it would appear that your line descends from one or two of the English Moody lines of ME and NH, who may descend from William 1 Moody of Newbury, MA whose lineage goes back to Edmund Moodye of Bury St. Edmunds area of England. He was a footman to King Henry VIII. This has been documented, however not sure if ALL the rest of the genealogy coming down the pike has been. I know a lot of it has been, but perhaps you will find your matching MOODY's here on this board and they will contact you directly for further discussions.
Best of luck to you in your research and I wish I could be of more help to you. Even though my entire MOODY family from about c1750 were in York Co., ME and Cumberland Co., ME, I don't match Ydna with you, so we don't share a common ancestor, but may share via intermarriages, other lines.
That's real common amongst all of our MOODY lines in New England.
Hopefully someone will contact you about your Ydna links to those Moody's.
