There is a Francis Bodine in the household of a Samuel Blossier in the 1880 Census of Mansfield, Richland Co., OH. I would bet it is this Francis Bodine. He was a publisher, age 24, and born in OH. Both his parents were born in NY.
Frank attended the University of Cincinnati and was an instructor at Pasadena Jr. College Presbyterian in California.
Here is some info on him:

I'm sure there are many off-spring from this group, but I have no more info.
Hope this adds to the Bodine information,
