Not sure about Magilligan but most Presbyterian churches did not keep burial records. Also, many Presbyterian families have plots in Parish (Church of Ireland) burial ground.

Hi,
   Today I checked the gravestones in both Magilligan Presbyterian church and in Magilligan (Tamlaghtard) Church of Ireland and was surprised to find that there were no Moody graves marked. The graveyards are fairly small so it is unlikely that I missed any.  I remember finding a Moody grave in St. Aidans Roman Catholic Church (see posting on 27 Jul 09). It was another Protestant Moody family but but made me wonder if there might be more. However I noticed that the Moodys of Lenamore were fairly small farmers in 1858 Griffiths so possibly did not have headstones.

Most of my information has come from the Magilligan Pres Church records.

A little more information.
William Moody who married Mary Anne Lafferty. He married 15 Jan 1841. The marriage was reported in the Belfast Newsletter. Mary Ann died 22nd April 1888, aged 87 and was described as farmer's wife, of Lenamore on her death certificate. In my notes I have written that he was probably alive in 1888 as  Mary Ann is not described as a widow on her death certificate.

The other William Moody was  born 5th May and bapt at Lenamore 16th June 1842. This is POSSIBLY the same William who was married to Mary Peebles. They had a daughter Margaret Anne who was born 8th January 1873 and baptised 12th Jany Lenamore.

Are you sure the marriage is the same Mary Ann as the 1888 death? Age at death gets borthdate of c1801 which would make from about 40 at time of that marriage. Not impossible, of course, but suspect, especially if many children were born after 1841.

I checked my notes:
In Pres records Mary Anne Lafferty was described as the widow of the late William Lafferty (who was drowned on the slobs of Magilligan Strand with Robert Moody about two years before) and she was married 15th Jan 1841.

 I have just noticed William is described as the son of widow Anne Moody.

Hi Kingskerswell,
 Thank you very much for looking in the cemetery, that was very kind of you. My sister and I were visiting Magilligan last  September and we also looked in the Presbyterian Cemetery and couldn't find any Moody headstones. Would there be records kept for the St Aidens Cemetery.  In the late 1800's what was the procedure for announcing a death in the family, did they put it in a local newspaper? Thanks again for all your help.

Hi Cyclamen, I was wondering if any of these William Moody's had a son called James?.  Does an Irish Death Certificate give the maiden name of the mother?
Thank you very much for this information.

Hi Aghadowey  & Cyclamen,
Thank you for your intriguing conversation, I was beginning to think that I was going to learn of some scandal in our family. Was the widow Anne who had the child William also from Lenamore? Thanks again.

Irish death certificates do not list names of either parent- see here for details of death certificates and other records-
