Bio and Links
My wife and I have been very interested in tracing our family history back as far as we can for a couple of years now. After my grandparents and other relatives have passed away I was given all the pictures from their houses so I have a lot of very old pictures as well as very old family Bibles. My wife, children, and I have traveled all over Maine and into New Hampshire visiting cemeteries and taking pictures of our ancesters. It is a great project and we have learned a lot of interesting facts about our family heritage. Some of the names we have in our immediate pedegree are Hodsdon, Waltz, Kimball, Bowley, Garland, Thyng, Creamer, Leavitt, and Bartlett. Robert and Heidi Hodsdon

Rangeley Bowley's
You have requested the transfer of 4 Bowley's in the Schoolhouse Cemetery in Rangeley. What is your relationship to them? Thanks.

Edward M Sawyer
You make this request on a regular basis and my answer is always the same. This memorial falls outside the four-generation mandatory transfer rule.

Edward is, according to all previous correspondence from you, your great-great-grandfather. Your own memorials here bear witness to his generational position. While you may find it convenient to lose a generation for your own purposes, the facts remain.

Hi Robert

As you know, I follow the four-generation rule for mandatory transfer that is set forth in the Find A Grave site rules.

As always, I will happy to add any information that doesn't already appear on the memorial. I did remove the notation about the gravestone possibly being missing as it clear from the photos provided by other volunteers that it is most definitely in place and fairly legible.

Thanks for being in touch.

Patch/Severance Stratham Cemetery
Hi Bob and Heidi...I notice you have posted some family photos on Patch/Severance memorials at Stratham. I am not related and would prefer transfer to you since it appears you are. I have updated memorials with data you have provided. Please use edit tab for each transfer request, and thanks for your contributions to Find A Grave! Linda

Rinda Hodgdon
Hi Robert, I was working on Rinda hodgdon family and found a discrepancy in Rinda's parents names.

The record of death shows Isaac Reed and Susan Bryer could you check this out? Zina Hodgdon is a relative on my dad's side.

Thank you for looking in to this.

RE: regarding otis family
Not directly. Our common ancester would be Stephen Otis 1698-1759. My lineage stems from his son Stephen 1731-1817 to his son Hezekiah 1765-1859.

RE: regarding moody postings
Hi - My grandparents are the late R. Ellis and Thelma (Donnell) Moody. My Moody ancestors for 5 generations back are all buried in the cemetery named Sproul/Moody (however, that's not its name and I've put in a request to have the name changed.) I think that there are links within that graveyard that will trace out my ancestry back to Joshua and Jane (Benner) Moody. Joshua Moody was the son of Amos and Elizabeth (Chamberlain) Moody. I believe that they're re buried in the Moody cemetery just a bit north of Joshua's, although their graves are unmarked (marked with fieldstones.) Amos' father was John Moody who settled in what's now known as Morang's Cove (once called Webber's Cove) on Damariscotta Lake circa 1782. His wife's name is unknown. John Moody died in 1778 and his wife had died prior to that. They (along with other members of the Moody family) were buried in a cemetery at the head of the aforementioned cove. that cemetery was destroyed in the 1940s. it consisted of about 40 graves (estimated) marked only by fieldstones. Its believed that this John Moody was the son of Clement Jr. and Elizabeth (Scribner) Moody of New Hampshire and was the older brother of Samuel Moody and Scribner Moody who also settled in Maine.

John Moody and his wife had five sons and three daughters - that we know of. The sons were Amos, John Jr., Richard, and Clement. The daughters were Abigail, Elizabeth and Sarah. Most of the Moodys in the area are connected. There was a Moody family in Brunswisk that does not appear to be connected as well as a line that settled in Lincolnville that is of a different line.

Its believed - using DNA analysis - that we are probably descendants of the Engromme / Ingram Moody who was a Scottish POW who was brought to the Saugus Iron Works in the 1660s. The early history of the family is not particularly clear as they didn't leave much of a trail!

Hope I've spelled out my Moody ancestry. If you want to contact me further its best to write me at I only drop by Find-a-rave sporadically.
