Moody Cheney

Classification: Query
I am seeking any information available regarding Moody Cheney, my g.g. grandfather. The only information we have is that he was born about 1790, apparently in upper VT. He married a Whitney (Alice?) and had 4 or 5 children including Royal Cheney (my g. grandfather). Royal Cheney seems to have married 4 or 5 times, initially in the VT region, but eventually moving west. Royal's son Arthur Cheney reported that the family lived in or around Derby Line, VT, and that they had family up around the Moody Beach area of Maine.

There is a family story about a land grant that was somehow lost or taken, and also oral history suggesting that family members were involved in the revolutionary war.

A reference in Pope's history of Cheney's indicates that he knew of Royal Cheney, but that Royal did not have any defnite connection with the Massachusetts Cheneys Pope documents so well.

I'd appreciate any information any one might have regarding this family.
