Notes for: Susan (Susannah) Bodine

She may be somehow related to the Moses Bodine and Peter Bodine who had sons named Hiram. They were all on batch #7911314, sheet 16 at I am gessing that the Susan Bodine who married James Crist is this Susan. Susan, the wife of James Crist was born on May 3, 1775 in Orange County. This Susan was born on May 1, 1775. That's pretty good evidence, but not absolute, of course. Her baptismal sponsors were Hans Newkirk and uxor.

Ronny Bodine does not list this child for Lewis and Weintje Bodine. This needs more investigation. She may not belong to this family.

From Ronny Bodine:

There is no baptismal record for Susannah Bodine, consequently her parentage remains unknown. In the 1860 census, the family of Lewis Crist, which included Susan, lived next door to that of Francis Millard Bodine (1819-1898), son of Benjamin Bodine (1773-1849).
