Notes for: Gilbert B. Bodine

Search billions of records on Ancestry.com
   
There is a Gilbert Bodine buried in the Owasco Cemetery (#155). He was buried on May 20, 1882 at age 76. This is probably that Gilbert. His wife, buried beside him, is named Hannah. She died August 1, 1893 at age 86. I am going to venture a guess that this Gilbert B. must be that Gilbert.

Hannah wrote her will on August 12, 1884 and did not mention any children - just nephews and neices and such. They must not have had any children of their own. Or, their own children did not live past 1884. Here is that info, sent in by Jessica Armstrong:

Survivors/next of kin:
half-brother Peter Selover
neices: Mrs Cornelis Robinson, Owasco; Martha Selover, Auburn; Margaret J DeHart(?), Owasco; Malinda Husk (?),

Brinkerhoff of Owasco, and Warren M Brinkerhoff of Auburn
She wrote her will Aug 12, 1884

The following has to do with some surrogate papers in the records of the Cayuga County, New York Courthouse.

...I did find some new information at the Records office: Surrogate's records...

...

In 1829, Gilbert B Bodine petitioned the court for Hannah (17), Henry (15), and David (11) to live with Garett Pearsol in Sempronious (Gilbert was their brother).

...

Hope this helps a bit. Thanks again,

The following surrogate records were all grouped together in one box...

David, Henry, Hannah dated March 31, 1829 (This date must be for the surrogate record.)
all ages are of "date last past"
Hannah 17: May 11
Henry 15: Oct 15
David 11: March 20 (Gilbert B is his brother)

Hannah wrote her own letter wishing Garret C Pearsol of Sempronius be appointed her guardian until she was no longer a minor. Henry also wrote his own letter asking the same thing. Pearsol was granted guardianship on March 31, 1829

...

Gilbert B wrote a petition in regards to "John Bodine, late of Sempronius, died without leaving any last will and testament...left considerable estate and one infant child, David. Your petitioner is a brother of said infant...[and] desirous that Garret C Pearsol be appointed guardian" The request was granted March 31, 1829...Pearsol was also appointed guardian of Henry and Hannah. A Mr. something Tallman was also given guardianship...

I think this is in regards to John Bodine's estate...

I did find this today: I went through and looked at John Bodine's papers again:
John Bodine d 1826. He died without a will.

Interested parties are John G Bodine (oldest son, of Mt. Morris); Anna, wife of William Sutphen of Lyons; Elisabeth, wife of Lewis Tallman of Owasco; Gilbert (B) Bodine of Owasco; Mariah Bodine of Owasco; Abraham (B) Bodine of Owasco; Hannah Bodine of Owasco; Henry and David Bodine of Sempronius. The "last three [are] udner the age of 21...Garret Pearsol of Sempronius is their guardian....[all] children of said deceased [John Bodine]."

The account wasn't settled until 1832.

...I included the middle initials in () because they aren't in the actual letters, but rather in the signatures at the bottom of the petition to have the account settled.
