Notes for: William Fox Bodine

Search billions of records on
The source for his death date and place may be "G.A.R." This is listed on the groupsheet for Peter Bodine in the Best & Bodine data. I believe this family is in the 1880 Census of Columbia Co., PA.

William Fox Bodine is buried in the Hill Side Cemetery in Catawissa, PA. I did not see his wife anywhere near him in the transcription (LDS film 953716). His tombstone says

Cap. Co. H. 28 Reg't.

He must have been a chaplain in one of the wars.

In the same cemetery is a Margaret Bodine Berninger 1844-1912 (wife of Tobias) and a Tobias D. Berninger 1842-?. They had a son, Albert L. Berninger Dec. 12, 1887 - May 15, 1892 (son of Tobias). I don't know how Margaret might be related to William. I believe there were also many Fox's buried in this cemetery. There seemed to be a lot of Fox's in Columbia County.

Someone has said that William married a Caroline M. Knapp. I have her as "Callie" Knapp. They are probably the same person.
