Search billions of records on Ancestry.com
   
I did have his name as Samuel C. Bodine. One web site, without sources, said his name was Samuel Creveling Bodine. I will go with that for now.
Samuel is listed as a farmer in the 1880 Census of Barre, Orleans Co., NY. He is 46 and born in New York. Both his parents were born in New Jersey. His wife's parents were born in New York.

My thanks to Joyce Cook for sending pictures from this family. Here is a list of the pictures that were sent. I'm not sure how all of them are related, but it is being worked on.

Hello,

My name is Julie Miller, I am the Chairperson of the History & Records Committee for the West Barre United Methodist Church. I came across your site while searching for information on Samual C. Bodine. We have recently restored two beautiful stained glass windows given in memory/j of Samuel Bodine and another Bodine (his wife, I imagine). We have been searching for descendents to tell them of the windows. Thank you for posting his photo!

I am a descendent of the West Barre Bodines.

Clarissa Bodine Grinnell (1870) was my grandmother. Her father was Samuel C. Bodine (1834) married to Betsey Hill Bodine (1835). They had 6 children: Mary, Esther, Clarissa, Archibald, Edith, Samuel Clark Bodine.

My grandmother didn't marry until she was in her 30s, but she and my grandfather Fred C. Grinnell had 2 children Catherine Grinnell Hill and Roland Grinnell. My father was Wilbur William Hill, son of Wayland F. Hill. The Betsey Hill Bodine (1835) that was married to Samuel C. Bodine was my mother's grandmother and my father's great aunt.

Unfortunately, that's about as much as I can tell you. I knew Clarissa very well, she lived to be nearly 100, as did both of her children. Her brothers and sisters spent many holidays at my mother's home. Mom was the cook of the family, and since I am one of ten children, the gatherings were always at her home. Mary and Esther never married. I don't remember ever meeting Edith or Samuel (we called him Uncle Clark)... His only son was Joseph, who remained a bachelor all his life. He lived in Oakfield, NY on the family farm. It was always fascinating to visit him, as he had no indoor plumbing, no electricity, no running water. I can't remember the name of the road, but there were wetlands on his farm and he "thrashed" his wheat right up until he died. The kids from other farms would help him, just to have had the experience. He did have a tractor.

When I look up the Hill genealogy, there are Bodines married to Hills and Hills with a middle name of Bodine, so they intertwined all through the past apparently.

I have a navy wool and white linen coverlet that was made on a "barn loom" dated 1834 with the name Mary Ann Foster. This was what sparked my interest in genealogy. As kids, we always thought this was a relative of my mother. She was actually a relative of my father.

Thanks for all the work.
