Hi Linda, the best thing to do is add family, starting with parents, grandparents and then on up the tree, remembering to always have at least one appropriate source. This might give us extra info to search with, thanks.

"South Dakota, Department of Health, Index to Births 1843-1914 and Marriages 1950-2016," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QKD8-YCH9 : 11 February 2018), Daniel Moody in entry for Vivian Moody, 13 May 1893; citing Birth, Mccook, South Dakota, United States, South Dakota Department of Health, Pierre.

"United States Census, 1920," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M8PG-JNB : accessed 14 September 2020), Dan Moody, Hurricane, Washington, Utah, United States; citing ED 229, sheet 12A, line 2, family 75, NARA microfilm publication T625 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1992), roll 1869; FHL microfilm 1,821,869.

"United States Census, 1930," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XH6D-87K : accessed 14 September 2020), Dan Moody, Monticello, San Juan, Utah, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) ED 3, sheet 3A, line 8, family 43, NARA microfilm publication T626 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 2002), roll 2417; FHL microfilm 2,342,151.

Apparently his father was born about 1845 in the Free Irish State, Ireland -- his father is cited on Daniel's death record but according to the 1920 Utah Census, Daniel's father is recorded as born in Missouri AND laughin the 1930 Census Daniel's father is cited as born in Ireland 

You might want to examine the Missouri census records 1850 through 1900 at least in Missouri for a Moody born in Ireland 

I know that on Daniel T. Moody death report it states his father is Dwight L Moody from Ireland, but I think that is not the name of his father . Times and places do not match up. I can not find the birth certificate of Daniel Thomas Moody which would have his fathers and mother name. He was born in Macon Missouri the 29 of January 1864.
