At first, I only had Elisha and David listed as their children. Family group records from Donald Roach gave me the rest of these names, dates, and spouses. This is probably the Francis Bodine listed on the 1830 Census of Sycamore Township, Hamilton County, Ohio (page 204). Betty Roach has a copy of his will (1849). This will is in Hamilton County, Ohio. The references I saw were wb11 p57,cA591. There is also something for a John W. Bodine in Hamilton County (reference cA590).

His son, William A. Bodine, is in the 1880 Census of Jackson, Rush Co., IN. He is 86 and born in New York. He is listed as a farmer. The census gives his parents' birth place as New Jersey, both for his father and mother. So this Francis and his wife, Matilda, may have been born in New Jersey and not New York. This needs more checking. I looked later at the census info for son, Marcus, in Columbia, Hamilton Co., OH. He says both of his parents were born in New York.

From Ronny Bodine:

Francis Bodine was bapt. 12 Aug 1764, in Hebron Lutheran Church, Orange County. This is probably the Francis Bodine listed on the 1830 Census of Sycamore Township, Hamilton County, Ohio (page 204). Francis and Hannah Bodine were buried in Hopewell Cemetery, Montgomery County, Ohio.
