Notes for: Catherine (Cathelyntje) Bodine

I don't know if it applies to this Catherine Bodine or not, but I found the following excerpt listed online from some old New Jersey marriage records:

#316; Joseph MATTISON of the Township of Amwell, and Joseph HANKINSON (Jr) of the Township of Reading, both in Hunterdon County... [bound to]... Wm FRANKLIN, Gov'r... 500 pounds... 5 May 1768. ... Joseph MATTISON... obtained license of marriage for himself and for Catherine BODINE of Reading Township... [w] Wm KIRKPATRICK, Daniel BUSKIRK.

My hunch is that the record above does apply to this Catherine. She is the daughter of Abraham Bodine and Mary Low, a family I believe is related to the John Bodine who married an Esther Mattison. I think John could be Abraham's grandson.

Others have said that this Catherine married a Barent Stryker, but I haven't seen the source of that (may be "The Stryker Family," by William N Stryker: 1979, p. 57). That Catherine could be the daughter of someone else. If this Catherine did marry Barent, then she would not have been the wife, also, of Joseph Mattison. The dates don't work out for that. See WorldConnect for more info on Barent and Catherine.

Here is more on that:
