Here are a couple pictures of the house that is said to have been built by Peter Bodine after he first built a log cabin. These were sent to me by Brian Bodine:

Here is some history of the Sandy Ridge German Baptist Church and the Sand Brook German Baptist Church. This information came from the Internet. There are also pictures of these churches at "http://www.njchurchscape.com/". As one can see, these churches do have a lot in common.

In 1812, the Baptist minister at Flemington was persuaded to spend part of his time preaching on Sunday afternoons and during the winter on weekdays in the Sandy Ridge area, about eight miles south of Flemington. The first Sandy Ridge German Baptist Church was built near the present site in 1818 and the present church in 1866, at a cost of $5,500. It's a substantial stone structure, 44 x 60, with little ornamentation except for the stained glass windows.

1848, a fellow named Moore led a number of followers in a split from the Sandy Ridge German Baptist Church a few miles away. This plain stucco over stone building was erected the following year, in 1849, and was known as the Moorite Church. It is essentially without adornment, although it has the two front doors characteristic of the period. When it was photographed several years ago, there was no floor, a couple of the shutters were barely hanging on, and several of the windows were broken, but a restoration effort was underway.

One record at the Sandy Ridge Baptist Cemetery says that Peter died in 1810. The Bible records mentioned below say he died October 10, 1801. I wonder if the info at the cemetery wasn't added some time after his death by a well-intentioned family member (who may or may not have been correct). Official records at the cemetery don't even seem to have been kept until 1819 and the church wasn't constituted until 1818. So any notation in the records for Peter was probably made years after he was actually buried there.

His stone does appear to be at Sandy Ridge. It is mentioned in the chart of the cemetery plots, but not in other lists there. His stone is not readable. It is next to his wife's grave. It looks like it has sunk into the ground quite a bit; so it's possible that any writing on the stone (if there is anything) could be buried.

A note in the Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine (v. 13, nos. 2-3) says, "An earth stone marks the place where Peter Bodine is said to have been buried by the side of his wife. He died from drowning and was supposed to have been buried elsewhere since the graveyard at Sandy Ridge was not used for burials until 1819.

I found your very interesting web site today. It will take me some time to digest it all!

I have a correction on the death date of Peter Bodine who is shown to have died in 1801 in the Susannah Case Bible. In the New Jersey Calendar of Wills 1810-1813 is Peter Bodine of Amwell Twsp;, Hunterdon Co., 1810, Nov. 16. Int. Inventory $95.50; made by Robert Sharp and Gershom Lambert. Sworn to by Isabella Bodine, Adm'x, Nov. 20, 1810. It appears the last two numbers of his death date are transposed in the Bible. I have a copy of the inventory.

Sabilla Ent's mother is Susannah Moore (Mohr/Moor) who married Valentine Ent. She is the eleventh of their twelve children. Susannah's parents are Johann Jacob Mohr and Anna Apolonia Moret.

On your family group sheet for Ann (Anna) Bodine and Adam Case under Sources, numbers 3 and 6 refer to a letter received from Mary Lou Bartunek. That is me and I don't remember what I wrote! I will have to look back in my correspondence. I lost my husband and am now very happily married to Ray Fisher.

An inventory can be done years after someone dies, but usually it is done soon afterwards. I would go with the idea that someone wrote the incorrect date in the Bible or someone transcribed it incorrectly.

Here is another message I got on this subject:

Subject: RE: Case - Bodine Bible

Dear Mr. Bodine:

Thank you for your E-mail. You are correct. At some point, the last two numbers of 1810 were transposed. The Case Genealogy File # 74 here at the Columbia County Historical & Genealogical Society lists the death date of Peter Bodine both as 10 Oct 1810 and 10 Oct 1801. The CCHGS does not have the Case-Bodine Bible you refer to in your E-mail, nor does it have a copy of said Bible. The Case Genealogy File lists the information that you have listed in your E-mail. The "Susan B. Case" that you refer to in your E-mail was the youngest of the 13 children of Adam & Anna (Bodine) Case and was born 2 Feb 1817. She was a Quaker missionary, who went about reading the Quaker faith. She last lived in Espy where she died (no date) and was buried in the Creveling Cemetery in Almedia in an unmarked grave. The Case Genealogy File goes on to mention that the Bible is now in the possession of Miss Susan Lehman of Espy. She was the daughter of Samuel & Myra (Case) Lehman, and died in 1948 (unmarried). There is no further mention of the Bible. The Mrs. Nancy Sweeney that you referred to in your E-mail is still living. She can be contacted by writting: Mrs. James J.(Nancy) Sweeney, 5660 80th Street - Apartment A203,St. Petersburg, FL 33709. She might be able to provide more information about the Case-Bodine Bible.

Sincerely,
Albert Oldroyd
Volunteer - CCHGS

Mary Lou Fisher later checked with Mrs. Sweeney, but she had not seen the Bible herself. She had only forwarded information from the Bible that was in the Case files. She does not know who actually has the Bible.

Here are a couple of pictures of the stone. They were sent to me by Brian D. Bodine:

Graves of
Peter and Sibilla Bodine



Grave of
Peter Bodine

His wife's stone says, "In memory of Sibilla Bodine, wife of Peter Bodine, Died April 4, 1825, Aged 66 years."

The land where Peter had a log cabin (I don't think it is still there), and later a house, is right around the corner from the cemetery.

Subject: Sibilla AND Peter Bodine 's Headstones FOUND !!!

Hello David,

I just returned from Sandy Ridge Cemetery where I met the caretaker. We located Sibilla's stone AND what must be Peter's. His name is on the chart; it's just not on the list, and it is right next to hers. There is six feet or so open on each side of their stones, so it has got to be his. His is fieldstone and is not legible, just blank...

It is listed that he came over from France. I was taken around the bend to where he originally lived in a log cabin, and then a house on the same grounds. Wesley Bellis Bodine took me there...

By the way, on the stone it is spelled Sibilla, but their chart also said Stella next to Sibilla. SO it was probably what they called her... I didn't get to see if any other of Peter's children are there. There was only one we went to, William. Although there are a lot of Bodines there, I don't think any more of his children are there. Wesley Bodine took me from there to Rosemont Cemetery; his parents and siblings are there and a grandfather. His Great Grandfather is at Sandy Ridge.

He said he has records going back to France. We will meet when he can. Probably go to a place to make copies. I don't know if you and I are in the same line, but I believe he and I are. I am thrilled to have gotten this much done. I do not know what Hiram Deets's records might show. He is long since passed, but he was the historian for Hunterdom County. In time, I can go back to the Historical Society. I will write again when I get the photos...

Happy Easter!

Subject: SABILLAH ( STELLA ) BODINE BIRTH & DEATH DATES

Hello David,
I got a call from the Pastor ( John Gillian ), then the Caretaker ( Bud Kazant ) of the Cemetery of Sandy Ridge Church. He didn't have record of Peter Bodine but did of Sabillah. They have only the birth & death dates.

Sabillah ( Stella ) Bodine, Died April 4th, 1825 at age 66, which would put her birth date at 1759.

He gave me the lot number ( 44? ) and said he would meet me at the Church to look at the Maps of the Cemetery to see if we could find the stone(s). He's 86 Years young... So, we got a little here with Sabillah's birth and death dates and will keep on looking and that's a start...

End of message.

This family had descendants who moved to Columbia County, Pennsylvania (son Peter Bodine). Columbia County came from Northumberland County. The book on the history of Columbia and Montour Counties, Pennsylvania lists some Ent families in those areas.

I bet that the Jacob Bodine who married Catherine Fauss is related to this family. They are from the Stockton area, too, and are buried in the cemetery behind the Sand Brook German Baptist Church. He is probably their grandson, but that is just a guess at this time.

Here is a message I got on the Ent family:

Was "cruising for cousins" when I found your web site. Was struck by the combination of the ENT and BODINE surnames together. When I poked around I found you have them as being from New Jersey. That's close enough for me at the stage my research is in to still hold an interest.

I am trying to track down alll that I can on an elusive LINA SNYDER who married SCHOFIELD. Both of them are buried in Chester Co., Pa. and I believe they lieved there. Where Lina Snyder was born and raised is still a mystery. I believe I have her traced down as having been one of three children born to CALVIN SNYDER and MELINDA ENT. It appears that MELINDA ENT had several brothers and sisters (whose names I have). One was a sister Jerusha ENT who married William BODINE. They had two children Frank and Ethel.

Does any of this look familiar to you? Do you have any information on Lina Snyder Schofield?

The following information comes from LDS microfilm #982266. This film has a lot of different genealogical data on it, but I only looked at the section called "Best and Bodine Families." This is found about halfway through the film. It is composed of at least seventy pages of family group sheets, notes, abstracts, and other items of genealogical interest. Most of it has to do with the Bodine and Best families from Ontario, Canada and Columbia County, Pennsylvania. It does not seem to be put together into any organized fashion, but there is a lot of information in this file. I believe all of it comes from work done and gathered by Harry Bodine, 307 4th Street, Evanston, WY 82930. And much of his information seems to have come from Mrs. Catherine Horman of Ferndale, Michigan. Her mother was Clara Belle Bodine. It seems that this was all put together in the 1960's.

One of the papers in this file was this information from a Case-Bodine family Bible. It was handwritten. Looking at this paper, I couldn't understand exactly where the Bible info came from. This Case-Bodine Bible data may have come from the September 1965 edition of Genealogical Helper, p. 134 - 194 (?). I'm not sure where this Genealogical Helper was published, probably Lycoming County or possibly Columbia County, Pennsylvania or even somewhere in New Jersey. This was submitted by Miss Violetta Hill, 177 Valley Road, Wayne, New Jersey. Miss Hill was working in New Jersey on names like Bodine, Case, Deats, Haserick, and Stonenburg. In Pennsylvania, she was working on Andrews, Barger, Briggs, Buchanan, Campbell, Carpenter, Carr, Case, Cruysinger, Faust, Haserick, Hill, Hauser, King, Lee, Marshall, Marsey, Pearson, Penquiste, Smith, Starr, Stauts, Taylor, and Thurston. The Case name also appears as Kase and Kaese. It seems that Miss Hill's Bodine line married into the Case line and moved to Columbia County, Pennsylvania about 1808. The Case line moved to Lycoming County (PA) in the 1850's.

********************

The following data comes from the Bible of Susanna Case. The Bible was bought in Pottsville, PA on December 29, 1850. It was published by James B. Smith & Co. in 1847 (23 S. 8th Street, Philadelphia). The words "Susan B. Case, 1868" are written in it somewhere. The info from this Bible was sent to Violetta Hill in September of 1964 by Mrs. Nancy Sweeney, the genealogical chair of Columbia County. The page I am copying from is handwritten.

Note by Dave Bodine: This information gets confusing, but this is what I understand. This Bible belonged to Susan B. Case, the youngest of the thirteen children of Adam Case and Anna Bodine. The birth dates for these thirteen children are not listed in this Bible. However, the date "Feb. 2, 1817" given above does refer to the birth date of Susan B. Case and not her mother, Anna (Bodine) Case. Someone has interpreted it that way in the past. However, Anna (Bodine) Case's birth date is given further above as "Dec. 1778 (?)." I'm not sure why the question mark is there. The date may be a little off or the person transcribing the Bible could not read it well. The Bible information continues below.

Hi Dave,

...

In the book "Immigrants to the Middle Colonies" edited by Michael Tepper is a section "Persons Naturalized in New Jersey Between 1702 and 1776". There is a Perter Bodine who was naturalized under the act of 8 July 1730. Could this be the father of your Ten Most Wanted, Peter Bodine 1756-1810, who married Sabilla Ent?

Regards.
Mary Lou Fisher

From Ronny Bodine:

Peter Bodine belongs to an orphan line whose ancestry is presently under investigation, but who undoubtedly is descended from Jean Bodin (John Bodine) and his wife Maria Crocheron. The name Peter was one commonly used in this family. Jean and Maria themselves had a son named Peter who was born about 1690 and two grandsons, one each born to their sons Isaac and Abraham. It seems quite likely that the subject of this account was a great-grandson of Jean and Maria Bodine.

Based upon family Bible records, Peter Bodine was born in 1756 and first appears in the public record in 1780 when he and John Bodine were recorded as residents of Hunterdon County, New Jersey's tax list for Amwell Township for each year through 1789, these being the only years available for review. He appears on a list of the Hunterdon County Militia of 1792. As noted below, he died in 1810 and an estate administration was conducted that year in Amwell Township. He married Sibilla Ent, daughter of Valentine and Susannah (Moore) Ent probably in 1777 or early 1778 as their first child was born in Dec 1778, but there is no surviving record of their marriage. The marriage undoubtedly took place in Hunterdon County. Whereas Peter died in 1810, his widow survived until 1825.

The father of Peter Bodine may have been another Peter Bodine whose estate was administered on 16 July 1796 by Esther Bodine and John Bodine, all of Reading Township, Hunterdon County. Esther Bodine, whose own estate was administered upon in March 1800, was likely Peter's widow and John was either his son or brother. The 1792 Hunterdon County Militia List included only eight Bodines, four of whom were residents of Amwell Township: David, John and two Peters, of whom one would be he who died in 1796 and the other in 1810. The New Jersey law reorganizing the state militia was approved 30 Nov 1792 and required each county to enroll any "free and able-bodied while male citizen between the ages of eighteen and forty-five." Thus the four Bodine men were born between 1747 and 1774. In Feb 1766, John Bodine, cooper, of Reading, Hunterdon County, was directed to appear before the Somerset County Court to answer charges of fornication having been accused by Hannah Van Sickelen of fathering her child which was born 30 Sept 1765. John Bodine posted a bond of 40 and Peter Bodine posted one of 20. (Docket of Jacob Van Noor Strand, J.P. 1765-1784, Bridgewater Twp., Somerset County.]
