Notes for: Samuel Bodine

Search billions of records on
Samuel was the youngest of the Bodine children and was still alive in 1805. He is not listed in the baptisms at the German Reformed Church of Alexandria. Those baptisms end about 1801. This Samuel is probably the Samuel Bodine who married a Sarah Wallace and was living in Philadelphia in 1850. That is a guess, though. I later found some Census info about a Samuel and Sarah Bodine living in N. Liberties Twp., Philadelphia. A comment suggested he was a son of Bodine and Mary Pickel. A Margaret Bodine was also listed (daughter?).
