A Mary Lou Bartunek (7 Bonnie Court South, Homosassa, FL 34446) sent a letter in 1999 to the Historical Society of Columbia County, Pennsylvania with info on this family.

The following information comes from LDS microfilm #982266. This film has a lot of different genealogical data on it, but I only looked at the section called "Best and Bodine Families." This is found about half-way through the film. It is composed of at least seventy pages of family group sheets, notes, abstracts, and other items of genealogical interest. Most of it has to do with the Bodine and Best families from Ontario, Canada and Columbia County, Pennsylvania. It does not seem to be put together into any organized fashion, but there is a lot of information in this file. I believe all of it comes from work done and gathered by Harry Bodine, 307 4th Street, Evanston, WY 82930. And much of his information seems to have come from Mrs. Catherine Horman of Ferndale, Michigan. Her mother was Clara Belle Bodine. It seems that this was all put together in the 1960's.

One of the papers in this file was this information from a Case-Bodine family Bible. It was handwritten. Looking at this paper, I couldn't understand exactly where the Bible info came from. This Case-Bodine Bible data may have come from the September 1965 edition of Genealogical Helper, p. 134 - 194 (?). I'm not sure where this Genealogical Helper was published, probably Lycoming County or possibly Columbia County, Pennsylvania or even somewhere in New Jersey. This was submitted by Miss Violetta Hill, 177 Valley Road, Wayne, New Jersey. Miss Hill was working in New Jersey on names like Bodine, Case, Deats, Haserick, and Stonenburg. In Pennsylvania, she was working on Andrews, Barger, Briggs, Buchanan, Campbell, Carpenter, Carr, Case, Cruysinger, Faust, Haserick, Hill, Hauser, King, Lee, Marshall, Marsey, Pearson, Penquiste, Smith, Starr, Stauts, Taylor, and Thurston. The Case name also appears as Kase and Kaese. It seems that Miss Hill's Bodine line married into the Case line and moved to Columbia County, Pennsylvania about 1808. The Case line moved to Lycoming County (PA) in the 1850's.

The following data comes from the Bible of Susanna Case. The Bible was bought in Pottsville, PA on December 29, 1850. It was published by James B. Smith & Co. in 1847 (23 S. 8th Street, Philadelphia). The words "Susan B. Case, 1868" are written in it somewhere. The info from this Bible was sent to Violetta Hill in September of 1964 by Mrs. Nancy Sweeney, the genealogical chair of Columbia County. The page I am copying from is handwritten.

Written by Susan B. Case, there (sic) granddaughter, 1868 & dau. of Anna Case who was b. Feb. 2, 1817, the youngest of the family of 13 children.

Note by Dave Bodine: This information gets confusing, but this is what I understand. This Bible belonged to Susan B. Case, the youngest of the thirteen children of Adam Case and Anna Bodine. The birth dates for these thirteen children are not listed in this Bible. However, the date "Feb. 2, 1817" given above does refer to the birth date of Susan B. Case and not her mother, Anna (Bodine) Case. Someone has interpreted it that way in the past. However, Anna (Bodine) Case's birth date is given further above as "Dec. 1778 (?)." I'm not sure why the question mark is there. The date may be a little off or the person transcribing the Bible could not read it well. The Bible information continues below.
