I wonder if this is not the Abraham Bodine who married Philenda Trumball. Joan Best also thinks this is a good possibility. She said this:
It is my guess that the John Bodine that is found in Livingston Co., NY for a while is the John from Cuyahoga, and that his son Abraham went to Michigan with the large group of Livingston Co. folk moving there; and John and Peter from the same clan moved to Richland Co., Ohio with the group of Livingston Co., NY folk who moved there.
End of info from Joan Best.

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.
