In Reply to: Levi Moody, b. July 28, 1777 - Married & Died in Nobleboro/Waldoboro by thomas h. moody of 11594

Thanks Thomas,
Here is a bit more info from the Census data, might be helpful to those researching these folks...
1870 Waldoboro, Lincoln Co., ME census - July 13th

living with Esther M. (nee MOODY??) CREAMER (note spelling) age 64 b. ME

1860 Waldoboro, ME census - June 15th

living with Christopher CRAMMER (note spelling) age 65 farmer b. ME
Esther M. CRAMMER age 53 b. ME
Gilman age 28 ship carpenter b. ME
Christopher 18 b. ME
Levi 15
Hattie S. age 12
Lucy T. CRAMMER age 21 all kids b. ME

1850 Waldoboro, ME
Levi MOODY head of house age 72 tailor b. Maine
Catharine age 63 b. ME
Nathaniel MOODY age 27 ship carpenter b. ME

1840 Waldoboro, ME
Levi MOODY age 50-60
1 male age 90-100 (his father??)
1 male 15-20
1 female 50-60 (prob. his wife Catharine)
Nearby neighbors - Gideon HOCH (Hough??)
Calvin Hoch
Jacob Hoch, Jr. age 20-30
Jacob Hoch (prob. Sr.) age 50-60
John Hoch age 40-50
On Next pg. next to each other are:
Louisa MOODY age 30-40
and Susan MOODY age 30-40 with their families
and several CRAMMER family's

1830 Waldoboro, Lincoln Co., Maine
Levi MOODY age 40-50
1 male age 80-90 (again, is this his father? b.c1745 or so?)
2 Doors Down - Michael HOCH age 60-70 (poss. Catharine's father??)
Thomas Hoch age 20-30
John Hoch 30-40
and Jacob Hoch age 40-50

1820 Waldoboro, ME
Levi MOODY age 26-44
Next Door a George HOC? Hoch age 45 and over (again, this could poss. be Levi's wife Catharine's father.

1810 Waldoboro, Maine
Levi MOODY age 16-26
1 female same age and other younger family members

1800 NOBLEBORO, Lincoln Co., Maine (no entry for Waldoboro)
The only MOODY's in this location were:
Amos MOODY age 45 and over
John age 26-44
Richard same age
Clement same age
Daniel MOODY age 45 & over
according to this census the Only Moody's in this location showing a son that could possibly be Levi MOODY are Amos, John and Richard MOODY.
They each have sons in the age range of 10-15 years old which in 1800 is the age Levi would be in.
Other noted MOODY's of places in Lincoln Co., ME who could be the Father's of Levi were:
Elias MOODY of Wales, ME had a son in that 10-15 yr. range
Jacob MOODY of Balltown, ME did and he was living near a Jonathan Moody.
William MOODY of Canaan Plantation, Lincoln Co. ME also had a son age 10-15 which could be Levi MOODY.

1790 Nobleboro, Lincoln Co., Maine census
Richard MOODY
"Cernes"?? / Amos or poss. a James MOODY were the only ones listed here.

My thoughts are that since this Levi MOODY appears to be a son of Daniel and Esther(Moody) MOODY (Esther daug. of Josiah and Sarah (Scribner) MOODY and Daniel son of David and Mary (GILMAN) MOODY, all of various areas of NH (Raymond, Freetown, Brentwood etc.), I believe this to be the lineage of Levi MOODY of Waldoboro, Maine.

Also the fact that Thomas has the gravestone reading from Cahterine S. wife of Levi with the little inscription of a son born to them named "Daniel", my guess would be he was probably among one of their first born sons named for Levi's father. The fact that Christopher CRAMMER is found right next to the Moody graves is also upholding the Census data above and also supports what Thomas thought when he found Esther M. CRAMMER's gravestone.
I believe the Broad Bay book Thomas cited is more correct in that Catherine's last name was originally spelled in the German way of "Hoch". I did not see one spelling of HOUGH in the census' but a Lot of "Hoch's". I also noted several "LIGHT's" and "Wagner's", don't recall a lot of Warner's if any, but perhaps they changed the spelling of their names.
So it does appear that these MOODY's are linked to your Clement line and probably explains why they were there.
Thanks again for your info, I'm sure it will be helpful to those looking for some of these folks and perhaps this bit of Census data will help them along too.
