Irish immigrants from the Ulster provinces of Ire. > America > Nova Scotia c1700's

I am searching for some shred of evidence that my 5th grt. grandfather's Parents, possibly Jameson (James) MOODY and his wife known only as "Martha" who came from Northern Ireland most likely during the 1700's Ulster-Scot immigration period, stayed for a while in Londonderry, New Hampshire, where 3 of their children are recorded in the VR's of Londonderry, NH and one being son James Moody b. Aug. 1755 whom I suspect to be my 5th grt. grandfather, and daughters Janet and Eleanor Moody.

They just disappear from the records after 1759 when daugh. Elinor/Eleanor Moody was born. I have heard speculation that they might have gone to the Truro area of Nova Scotia with many of the other families who fled Londonderry, NH before the outbreak of the Rev. War.
However I cannot find any information on this.
DNA has proven we do not descend from the Moody families of England and our surname project has many of them, but we do have a slight linking (not a bonafide exact match so far) to those who were in Northern Ireland who probably have Scottish roots.

If anyone knows of this Jameson/James Moody b.c1728 I guess, and his wife Martha who had at least 3 children James, Janet and Elinor/Eleanor Moody all three births recorded in Londonderry, New Hampshire, USA, anywhere in Canada at this stage, I would be Most Greatful for any information on them.
Thank You very much.
