A couple of more things I want to remark on about the census records Melissa posted just so if anyone reads this post in the future a couple of possible confusions will be cleared up in advance.
The Louisa Moody and Susan Moody listed in the 1840 census are as follows: Louisa Moody is Louisa Catherine (Simmons) Moody, the wife of Jacob Moody (Ezekiel, Amos, John, Clement Jr., Clement, Ingram) and Susan Moody is Susan (Levensaler) Moody, a sister in law to Louisa, Susan being the wife of Mathias Moody(Ezekiel, Amos, John, Clement Jr., Clement, Ingram). I recently found out whiole lookinmg at land deeds in Waldoboro, that both Jacob and Mathias Moody owned two smallish plots of land adjacent to each other in Wladoboro being abutted (I forget which side) to land owned by the Farnsworth family of Waldoboro - one of the more well-to-do Puritan families that came to Waldoboro from the south shore of Mass. in the 1770s. I also learned from this deed that Jacob and Mathias were brothers (which now definitely places Jacob as a child of Ezekiel) and that they were both working as wheelwrights. In an unusual stroke of events Jacob Moody died in 1839 of an unknown cause. Mathias Moody died in 1840 (obviously pre-census)from a falling tree/lumbering accident. The Mathias Moody land in Waldoboro was sold and Susan Moody married Jacob and Mathias' younger brother Solomon Moody in 1841 and moved to the Ezekiel Moody farm in North Nobleboro which eventually she and her husband owned as their own farm. It would appear that Louisa Moody never remarried.
As for the Warner/Varner/Vannah family, I think that they had all moved across The Old Country Road which connected what's known as West Waldoboro (on the western side of the Medomak River) to the area of Nobleboro once known as Glendon before 1790. The family then went went a bit further to the southern shore of Muscongus Bay in Damariscotta Lake.
Other German families that went via the same route into the Glendon area were the Genthner, Mathias Benner, and Umberhind families.
