Still another familiar face will be missed from the little band of hardy pioneers whose ranks daily grow samller and more scattered - Joshua Moody died at his home on Pandora avenue at a late hour last night, after an illness of several weeks duration. The deceased was a native of Massachusetts, coming from Newburyport, and was in his 86th year, the greater portion of his busy life being spent in Victoria, where he accumulated considerable property interests, and where he leaves a numerous family, the majority of whom have grown up and taken their places as the heads of families in the city of their birth.

The Daily Colonist of Jan 4, 1894 (see note below)

NOTE: Joshua Moody did not come to Victoria (or Canada) until December of 1865. NONE of his children were born in Canada - ALL were born in Hartland, Maine.

After his wife Amy Kendall Bowley's death in Hartland, Maine, Joshua and his 2 daughters came to Victoria in Dec 1865 via the Isthmus of Panama to join his 2 sons Sewell Prescott and Thomas Gage Moody who had come out to B.C. in the late 1850s.

Of the 5 children that Joshua and wife Amy had, one is buried in Hartland, 3 in Victoria, and one, Sewell Prescott Moody, went down with the S.S. Pacific off Cape Flattery in 1875. His body was never recovered.
