Archives: Isaac A. Bodine Bible Records

Closeup of Isaac Bodine's Bible
The first entry under Births says, "Isaac Bodine Son of Cornelius & Mary was Born January 12th 1752"


The text in blue below was added by the people who originally transcribed the records to help explain the names and add other valuable information for the reader. I added some headings and explanation in teal to help the reader understand the sections the information seems to be divided into. I don't know if the Bible really was divided into such sections. This originally appeared in the Kentucky Genealogist in 1963 (v. 5, pp.123-129).

BODINE FAMILY RECORDS
Contributed by
Amber L. Bodine,
Yuba City, California

     The Bible records of Isaac A. Bodine, 1752-1812, of Loudoun County, Virginia, and Nelson County, Kentucky, were copied by Mrs. Karl (Barbara Craig) Hilty, of Grand Prairie, Texas, who obtained the Bible from Mrs. Isaac Ludwell Bodine, of near Bardstown, Kentucky, later returning it to her. The records were sent to Mrs. A. O. (Amber L.) Bodine, who has added in parentheses information to clarify the entries.
     The cover and title pages were missing from the Bible; the paper was brown and crisp. It is believed that the Bible was once the possession of Isaac A. Bodine, as the record begins with his family, mentioning his parents. There are several handwritings in the Bible, as the writers passed the record from one generation to the next.
     The additional data were gathered from living members of the family, vital records of Nelson County, Kentucky, wills of various members of the family, marriage records, and United States census records of the area.
