Good Afternoon, Dave. I have just found and copied for my daughter your material on the Bodines. My Grandmother was Laura Bodine Latimer--her Mother was Cornelia m. Chamberlain Bodine. Grandmother researched her family history because she wanted to join the DAR (which she did). I have only the information printed in THE COMPENDIUM OF AMERICAN GENEALOGY fIRST FAMILIES OF AMERICA. I suspect you have all of that as well. I can send you a copy of my info, if you like.
This all very exciting. My Maine daughter and i were talking this week about the Bodines.
Are you familiar with a William Sabin (1600-1663) known as The Patriarch of Rehoboth, Mass from LaRochelle, France? another Huguenot.
I am Laurie Jones Fox, 602 Sawyer Terr. 426, Madison, WI 53705
Email ljonesfox at charter.net. I'd love to hear from you. Any other Wisconsin relatives? Sincerely, Laurie Fox
