Hi Theresa,
So glad you shared your 12 marker results. Even with 1 marker off, you will no doubt still be part of our ever growing family tree. One thing I can tell you is that our group seems to have more mutations than any other group in the whole Moody surname project.
Not sure why that is, but we do.
Anyway, Fred will add you to his site as he said where you see how closely we match or mismatch whatever the case may be. However, the bottom line regardless to how far off we
mismatch to each other numbers-wise, is that we all descend from the same branch of Ancestral Moody's. We are all part of the same Genetic pool if you will.

Anyway, we are so glad to have yet another Moody cousin in the family....so Welcome to you and your Moody's!!

Here is some info I found which I believe is in regards to your Moody branch. This comes from the old book called
Genealogical and Family History of EAstern Ohio Illustrated by Prof. Ewing Summers publ. in 1903.
I will not type the whole 2 pages worth here, but starting on pg. 82 it gives a synopsis of Warner P. MOODY and says the following...
Mr. MOODY has been the principal of the public school of Struthers, Mahoning Co. [OH] for nearly 15 years, so long a time that many of those who were his pupils in the first years are now grown to maturity and have children of their own to be educated. .......
His family has been connected with the history of Mahoning county for over a century. His grandfather James MOODY who was of Irish descent was born in 1772 in Delaware and came to Ohio in the early years of the last century. He married Elizabeth TINCH (I've also seen her name spelled as Tench), and this book says she was of German descent (?...I've seen this name on Orkney in Scotland but the Germanic tribes of the Vikings were settled on Orkney very early on), anyway, it goes on to say that James and Elizabeth reared a large family. They both lived to a good old age and their remains rest in the Boardman township.
One of their children [James and Elizabeth Tinch MOODY's] was Jackson B. MOODY and he was born in the fall of 1814. He was a merchant in Poland [Mahoning Co., OH], and by appointment from the Democratic President Buchanan, became the Postmaster. The firm of Lee & Moody did a thriving business in Poland which was then the principal town on the old stage route between Pittsburg and Cleveland. When Jackson's parents became old and feeble he returned to the farm to care for them and at their deaths he inherited the place. Twenty Six acres is still in possession of one of his daughters. [in 1903 when this book was written]
He [Jackson] married Sarah PATRICK who was born in this county in 1830 the daug. of Arthur PATRICK and Elizabeth BISHOP. Arthur Patrick was a Scotch-Irishman born in Co. Antrim, Nor. Ireland. Six sons and two daughters were born to Jackson and Sarah and all grew up and are now living except one son James Arthur Moody who was a merchant in Youngstown and died at the age of 48 leaving behind 3 sons.
The other living children are: [I am guessing they mean the children of Jackson and Sarah Patrick MOODY??] -Elizabeth MOODY who is the housekeeper for her brother Holmes MOODY and her two Uncles, Charles and William PATRICK
Olive MOODY a teacher in Poland [OH], Fred R. who is successfully carrying on the business in Youngstown [Mahoning Co., OH], of his brother widow, Thaddeus Moody is a storekeeper for the boiler works in Youngstown, Jesse R. is a resident of Youngstown and has a family of 5 children, and Warner P. MOODY.
The mother of this family (Sarah Patrick I guess), died at the age of 47 in 1877 and the father {Jackson B. Moody??} died in Aug. 1896.
Warner P. MOODY was born in Boardman, Mahoning Co., OH in 1865 and was educated in Poland, OH and left the academy at the age of 18 and at age 21 began teaching.
On Dec. 30, 1890 he married Miss Mary E. KERR who was born in Merce, PA and is the daug. of Henry G. KERR and Mary E. Cozad. Warner and Mary had 2 sons and 2 daughters but all died in infancy except one daughter Miriam Moody who was born Dec. 24, 1896. They attended the Methodist church and Mr. Moody was a member of the Knight of Pythias.
Two heirlooms that Mr. Moody cherishes are a sword and pistol that were carried by his grandfather James Moody in the War of 1812 and it is very probable that other ancestors served during the Rev. War as well.

From the Official Roster of the Soldiers of the American Revolution Buried in the State of Ohio publ. in 1929 comes the following entries: James MOODY - Ranger - born 1769 d. 1831 buried Boardman Cem. farmer. Reference - PA Archives Sec. 3, Vol. 23 pg. 227 and Somers [sic - Summers -see above] History of Mahoning Co. pg. 82

James MOODY of Mahoning Co.
b. 1771 still living as of 1860 [Census]- [a Note says that Dates found later indicate that this James was too young for Rev. War service. Another James may be found for these dates].

From the History of Trumbull and Mahoning Counties [OH] Vol. 1 - publ. in 1882 comes the following tid bits of info:
In 1807 the township records show James MOODY as a landholder. It makes the comment that a good many of these early families came to that part of OH from PA and CT.
Same book - under the Elections of the first town officers is listed James MOODY as treasurer in 1806 and says that it was organized as Boardman [OH] in 1805.
Under Justices of the Peace - James MOODY.
Military - James MOODY -Private in the 3rd comp.
Just to lend support to this entry above comes the following from Grave Records of the soldiers who served in the War of 1812 that are buried in OH -
James MOODY, Jr. - 3rd, Pvt., b. 1771 d. after 1860 buried Boardman, Mahoning Co., OH.

Anyway, thought all of this might be helpful.
Its probably not anything new to you but maybe something is.
Glad to have you as part of our ever growing Moody clan.
Take care.
