Search billions of records on
She was listed as 43 years old in the 1850 Census (NJ). Info from the new LDS site lists a Jacob Bodine, born about 1808, as married to Catherine Fauss. They married January 2, 1830 in Flemington, Hunterdon County, New Jersey. Catherine is said to have been about 1810 in Sand Brook, New Jersey. She was the daughter of Samuel Fauss and Mary Moore. Deborah Naylor-Farhar in Okeene, Oklahoma is a Fauss descendant ( I originally had Catherine listed as a Francis, but that appears to be incorrect.

In the March 25, 1884 edition of the Hunterdon County Democrat, Catherine's death is mentioned. It says this:

The mother of Mr. H. F. Bodine, a lady 78 years old, died very suddenly of apoplexy at her home at Sandbrook, on Thursday morning of week before last. On Wednesday she had been on a visit, and attended a church service in the evening previous to her unexpected death.
