Subject: Bodine stuff

Lewis Bodine: This L.B. was born during the 1740's, had 8 children from Wyntje Kimberg (various spellings), one of whom was another Lewis Bodine (b.1778). This is the same family group in your correspondence. I did not know of the Sussanah record at Hebron Lutheran Church. I have no contention with it, provided it says that Wyntje is her mother. Then that would make nine. He was a Revolutionary War veteran.

Discussion: To have had a family with children born in the 1760's, he would have to been born in the 1740's or before. This Lewis must also be the one who put up a bond in the estate of James Shearer of Montgomery, in 1791. The others would have been too young. The Rev. War rosters have Lewis Bodine listed. Again the others would have been too young for this. He could be a close relative of Jacob Bodine, Sr.

Lewis Bodine: This is the son of the Rev. War soldier, b. 1778. He is in the 1860 Federal census, age 81.

Discussion: The 1860 census lists him living with Fanny Bodine, age 50 and Mary Ann Lee, age 50 also. Baptism record clearly shows his parentage to Wyntje and the eldest Lewis. Age in census identifies him as b. 1778. See also the 1850 Census, age 71 living with Fanny Bodine, age 43. Also 1820 Census, "Lewis L. Bodine. The other Lewis's had all died before 1860.
