Notes for: Frederick (Fredericus) Bodine

Search billions of records on
Witnesses were Johann Bickel and Barbara. Baptised as Fredericus Bedein. A Pickel web site said he was baptized on August 20, but no source was given.

In 1840, a Christianna Bardine is found in Liberty Township, Columbia County, Pennsylvania (a spin-off from Madison I think). I put this here because there is a Christianna Bodine who was the widow of a Frederick Bodine. This is found in the Wills and Administrations, Book 2, p. 11, of Columbia County, PA (dated May 4, 1836). I think that Christianna could very well be the widow of this Frederick Bodine. In her household there is
1 male, 20-30: b. 1810-1820.
1 female, 10-16: b. 1824-1830.
1 female, 15-20: b. 1820-1825.
1 female, 20-30: b. 1810-1820.
1 female, 40-50: b. 1790-1800 (Christianna?)

Here is the entry from the Wills and Administrations book mentioned above. This only seems to be a handwritten copy of an original record somewhere else, maybe in the Orphan Court Records.

Before me Alexr Best Register

From Ronny Bodine:

He married (1) Christina Deily 26 February 1814 in Easton, Northampton County, Pennsylvania. He married (2) Mary Ann Harris 13 October 1827 in Easton, Northampton County, Pennsylvania.

It is here assumed the following details all apply to the same person. Frederick Bodine, born 1791 in Alexandria Township, New Jersey and Frederick Bodine who married in Easton, Pennsylvania were living but 15 miles apart. Could the Frederick Bodine living 1830 in Turbot, Northumberland Co., Penn. who is otherwise unknown, be the same person as he, too, was born by 1791 and his daughter Sally, born in 1816 fits with the girl aged 10-14 (born 1816-20) in his household. The distance between Easton and Turbot is some 100 miles and if the same person must mean a permanent relocation.
