DNA analysis of the descendants of Clement Moody Sr. (b. abt 1661/2) has proven that he was not of the Caleb Moody (William) line. Clement Moody Sr.'s origins are Scottish, while the DNA of William Moody of Ipswich, Mass. prove that that family originated in England.

Caleb is 15 degrees from Kevin Bacon, 13 degrees from Abraham Lincoln, 22 degrees from Ayn Rand, 17 degrees from Peter Roberts and 15 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II of the Commonwealth Realms on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
