    Notes 
    • He came to Gilmanton in 1763 and began clearing his land and making preparations for permanent settlement. His nearest neighbor on the south was four miles away and on the north there was no settlement nearer than Canada. Soon after his arrival his camp was burned, with all of his supply of provisions, some of his clothing, and his hat. He was obliged immediately to repair to Kingston for a new supply, and afterward he was frequently heard to say that his loss at that time was more severely felt than when (1821) his large two-story frame dwelling and nearly all of its contents were burned. In the latter part of the year 1765 he was taken sick, and knowing something of what was about to follow he made a supply of hasty pudding, brought a supply of water from the spring, then lay down in his camp and passed through the course of fever, without a physician or attendance of any kind.

      Captain Moody was an influential and useful citizen in the town of Gilmanton. He was selectman, captain of militia and an officer of the Revolutionary army. In 1776 he enlisted a company of twenty men and was its captain, and joined the continental army under Washington, serving three months and eight days. His house became the home of his father's family, and his mother, an almost helpless invalid, lived with him until the time of her death.
