Melissa, Thanks for posting all of that data!

I noticed that Levi Moody was only 10 y.o.when his mother Esther (Moody) Moody died. Although there's no record in barb's research that Daniel remarried, I'm assuming that he probably did. However, is it possible that with other young children left after Esther's death that Levi was taken in by some of the North Nobleboro Moodys? His marriage record to Catherine does say that he's from Nobleboro.

As for his wife Catherine, I overlooked the notation that Christine Huston Dodge got the name Hough from the town records. Regardless, it has to be Hoch. (Later one sees that name also spelled Hoak. There were kids in H.S. with me with both surnames Hoch and Hoak.) I believe she is the daughter of the the German immigrants Hans George Hoch and Magdalena Unknown). Hans George Hoch was born on 3/4/1748. There seems to be some haziness about whether the Hochs came directly to Waldoboro or spent a few years at Quincy, Mass (Germantown) before making the move to Maine. Anyway, Hans George Hoch lived to nearly 100, so he must be the old man that's showing up in the census in the Levi Moody household.

The surname Crammer and Creamer were interchangeable and only the form of Creamer exists today. Its sort of odd that Christopher's family were insistent on having the stones marked as Crammer - and that they spelled Gilman wrong. Who knows!

Asa for other children of Levi and Catherine Moody, the only possibility I found was a Hilena Moody (b. abt. 1815) who married a Jacob Hoch - who I believe appears on your census list and the two were probably cousins. If their were others besides the possible four already discussed - at this point they've left no trace.

As for other Creamer children - in case anyone wants to know, the daughter Jane Ann (b. 2/18/1827) married Edwin Merrick Rust in Thomaston (no date found yet.) And I now strongly believe that the Sarah Ann Creamer who married John F. Moody (Thaddeus, John, John, Clement, Clement, Ingram)was another daughter. She was born in Waldoboro in 1834. This would, interestingly, tie the two Moody families back together.

Now, my other question is, did Daniel and Esther (Moody) Moody) have a daughter named Mary who was born about 1775? And, would she have also come to North Nobleboro with her brother Levi? I can't place her. Sh married Frederick Eugley abt 1775 and that DOB doesn't fit with any of the Nobleboro Moodys. It would be interesting to find out what happened to the Daniel and Esther Moody family after Esther's death.
