Hi, Deason, I just joined this site & see that you have researched Moodys in East Texas. My ggrandmother was Clementine "Tena" E. Moody, b. 1 Feb 1870 in TX. She married John Albert Humphries 2 Feb 1887 In Freestone Co., TX. They are both buried in Oakwood, Leon Co., TX. Tena's father was Wm. J. Moody, b. 1821 in SC. He married Clementine M. "Clem" Smiley in 1859 in Alabama. They moved to TX in the late 1860s. I don't know where or when Wm. J. died, but Clem Smiley Moody is also buried in Oakwood, Leon Co., TX. Clem & Wm. J.'s children were Caroline, Harriet, Clementine "Tena", & John Winston Moody.
If you have any information about these Moodys, I would appreciate your contacting me. Thanks a lot,
I am new to this site and already love it! My husband's paternal grandmother was Laura Marguarite Hazard born in 1893 in Knoxville, TN. We recently learned from her niece that their Hazard family is supposed to be connected to Oliver Hazard Perry but that's all the info we have. It certainly would be interesting to learn if their is a real connection. Do you have any info on the Hazard family line?
