Archives: Wilson L. Bodine, Jesse Evans Bodine, & Ann G. (Bodine) Crammer Family Bibles
These Bible records come from the Bible of Wilson L. Bodine and his wife Rebecca Baner. There is also a Bible record of their daughter Ann G. (Bodine) Crammer, and their son, Jesse Evans Bodine. Ann was married to Samuel Weeks Crammer. Jesse was married to Maria Mott. I found these records on LDS film #856856 which is a microfilm of genealogical records from eastern and western Pennsylvania. I think these records were all contributed by D.A.R. members. About 2/3 of the way through this film there are fifteen or so pages contributed by Miss Emily V. Smith. She was the Chairman of Genealogical Records for the Peter Muhlenberg Chapter, N.S.D.A.R. The title of her contribution was "Robert Smith and Allied Families." The description says, "Copies of records from an old Account Book (1769), Family Bibles (5), three dated Sillhouettes and other records found in the Woodbury Courthouse (County-Seat of Gloucester County, New Jersey) and in the Pennsylvania Historical Society (Philadelphia)." I believe these three Bibles were in the possession of Miss Smith. She at least had the Jesse Evans Bodine Bible. Wilson was Miss Smith's great-grandfather. Ann G. (Bodine) Crammer was her grandmother. Elisha Collins Smith and Frankalena Woodward (Crammer) Smith were her parents. Miss Emily V. Smith was born February 27, 1885.
