This could be the Charles Bodine mentioned in the 1800 Census of Orange Co., NY. The census info doesn't quite match up, but there could be several reasons for that. I would guess that it does refer to this Charles. Here is that info:

1 Male of 26 & under 45

1 Female of 26 & under 45
1 Slave

And here is the info from 1810. Again, it doesn't match up with the info I have, but it is possible that it refers to this Charles. He may have had other family members in his household who were not his own children.

Whig Press articles says he died at the house of his son-in-law, Joseph Terbell. There are several generations of this family in the Bull genealogy. It does not give his parents.

The following comes from "The History of Orange County" by Samuel W. Eager:

WILLIAM EAGER (the second) . The reader will pardon us for a little prolixity on the subject of ancestors. As previously remarked, William Eager, son of the first settler of that name, was thirteen years old when the family came to Neelytown. He went to school but one quarter; and that, we presume, was while he tarried in Westchester, for in this vicinity there were no public schools at the time.

In person, be was tall and spare; of a fair complexion, with a fine Roman nose which gave character to his whole face; in temper, quick and self willed, like a flash of gunpowder and all was over. Still he was grave and thoughtful, and we never heard him laugh. He married, quite early in life, Miriam Butler; by whom he had one child, and both died early. Afterwards he married Ann, the daughter of William and Sarah Bull of Hamptonburgh, then in the town of Goshen. Nine children were the fruits of this marriage; all of whom grew up and were married, except Anthony, who died young. The descendents of the first settler are now very numerous and widely dispersed. Some of them are of the fifth generation from him.

William married Elizabeth, daughter of Samíl Watkins, Esq. of Walkill;
Thomas married Margaret, daughter of John Blake, Esq. of Neelytown;
Sarah married Capt. James McBride of Neelytown;
Elsie married John Blake, Esq. of Neelytown;
Mary married Charles Bodine of Montgomery;
Esther married Samuel Dunning of Walkill;
Ellinor married Mr. Philip Mowbray of Walkill;
Ann married Elijah McMunn of Montgomery;
Anthony died young.
All of whom are dead, except Mrs. Bodine and Mr. Mowbray.

With the readerís permission we will cast the descent of this family through a few generations; not because there is any virtue in it, nor yet to find an ancient and honorable ancestry, but as a pure matter of curiosity, having the materials at hand for the purpose, and to link ourselves fast to the Emerald Isle, and trace a descent from a land of heroes. It will be found in the appendix if made.
