Notes for: David Bodine

Search billions of records on
He is seven years old in the 1850 Census (NJ). He was 18 in the 1860 Census. His name looks a lot like "Daniel" in the 1860 Census, but I think it is "David." This is probably the David Bodine listed in the 1880 Census of N. Delaware, Hunterdon County. His wife was Emily (36) and his children William (10) and Annie (8). A David Bodine married an Emily Lair on September 5, 1863, probably by Rev. William H. Pittman. They were both from Delaware Township (Hunterdon Co. Democrat, Sept. 16, 1863, v. 25, no. 58, p. 1306). I am going to guess that these are the same David Bodine.

David is listed as a farmer in the 1880 Census of Delaware, Hunterdon Co., NJ. Both his parents were born in NJ. He was also born there.

Here is some info from the Hunterdon Co. Hist. Soc.'s card files:

Bodine infant daughter of David & Emily, August 13, 1865 Sand Brook.
