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.
