Archives: John Washington Bodine Family Bible


Judy Partida has a family Bible that dates from 1852. It may have been started by John W. Bodine and his wife, Margaret Ann Power; however, it is uncertain who actually made the entries. John Washington Bodine (b. about 1826 in Loudoun Co., VA) is the son of John Bodine (b. about 1790 in Loudoun Co., VA) and Margaret Tillet (b. about 1797).

The Bible lists all their children, their marriage date, as well as Margaret's death date. It goes no further than that, though. Here is what the Bible says (click on the links to see the actual pages from the Bible).
