David C. Bodine

David C. Bodine

There is a David C. Bodine whose marriage to a Sarah G. Kern was listed in the Warren Journal, in Belvidere, Warren County, New Jersey on November 15, 1849. The marriage took place on November 6. He was listed as being from Columbia County, Pennsylvania and she was from Hainesburg, New Jersey. They were married by Rev. J. P. McCormick. As mentioned above, there is a David C. Bodine buried in Union Cemetery with Peter and Anna. He supposedly died on September 16, 1853 at age 27 y, 8 m, and 18 d. That would put his birth date at about Dec. 29, 1825. I later got a picture of this stone and the death year looks like 1855. That is also how the photographer read it. I will go with that unless some better proof comes up for 1853.

Now I see that there is a stone for a Samathia Bodine at Union Cemetery. The info at Find A Grave says her parents are David C. and Sarah Bodine. Samathia died Dec. 16, 1855 at age 2 yrs 10 mo and 7 dys. Given this information, I will guess that this David did marry Sarah Kern.

From Ronny Bodine:

On 25 Sept 1855, Letters of Administration were granted to Philip Cool on the estate of David Bodine of Roaring Creek Township, Columbia County. The widow (unnamed) renounced to right to administer. Surety by Peter Bodine & George Hughes. (Columbia County Wills & Administration Records, vol. 3 [1850-1869], p. 166.)

Burials in Union Cemetery, Catawissa, Columbia County.
In Memory of David C. Bodine Who Died Sept. 16, 1855, Aged 27 Yr. 8 Mo. 18 d.

After the death of her husband David Bodine, Sarah married 2ndly John B. Angle, both of whom are named as the parents of Alice Angle Drake in her 1952 Pennsylvania Death Certificate. Alice was married to William C. Drake (1854-1933) and was living with him most of their married life in East Stroudsburg, Monroe County, Penn. In 1930, Emma E. Bodine, noted as William's sister-in-law, lived with them. In Emma's 1933 Pennsylvania death Certificate her parents are recorded as David Bodine, born in Penn. and Sarah Kern, born in New Jersey, confirming that Alice Angle and Emma Bodine were half-sisters with their mother in common.
