This Jacob may well be the father of the Jacob Bodine who married Catherine Fauss. If so, then there are several other children mentioned in that Jacob's file who could be this Jacob's sons.

I went to Catawissa, Pa. because the records indicate that this Jacob died in Columbia Co. Pa and an apparent brother, Peter, is buried in this town. No luck. Looking over your records, it appears that there is no proof of this man's life. Am I missing anything? We thought we could try for a death certificate in Columbia County, but I have not tried to do that before.
I guess Jacob may continue to be our missing link to peter Bodine. Can you help in any way?
As for the Bible I have, it belonged to Sarah Catherine Bloom Bodine who married John M. Bodine and does not go back beyond her parents. I have not figured out what the M. stood for. If you want copies for your site, I will have to get someone to help me make them and get them to you.
