Hallo, Dave!


I'm submitting John Bodine's name and service record to the Daughters of the American Revolution, so they can formally identify him as a patriot...

Hi Dave,

He served at Fishkill under Capt Conckling, in Col Hawthorn's 4th Reg't. Check out the attached, plus: New York in the Revolution as Colony and State, James A. Roberts, Comptroller, 1898, pages 161/2.


Note from Dave on the above from Val: This does seem like a likely possibility but some guessing is involved.

From Ronny Bodine:

From: Biographical sketch of Harvey Griffin in Commemorative Biographical Records of Ulster County, 1896, p. 994-995.
John Bodine had extensive realty interests, owning about 600 acres of land, just above the village (Plattekill Township), which he divided among his five sons. He was also a native of this county, but his father was a native of France. A German element entered into the family by the marriage of John Bodine to Mary Frint, who was probably born in the Fatherland. They located on the old homestead farm, where they spent their remaining days, and reared a family of five sons and one daughter, namely: John, Henry, Levi, Peter, Isaac and Esther; all of the sons became farmers.
