Archives: Samuel Tucker Bodine Family Bible

This Bible was recently offered for sale at Ebay. I bought it and made copies of the genealogical pages. I don't know who the original owners were, but it contains the family of Samuel Tucker Bodine and his two wives: Isabel Sheppard Nixon and Louisa Wylie Millikin. Samuel was born July 19, 1810 in the Wading River Tavern in Burlington Co., NJ. His parents were Capt. John Bodine (b.1745) and Ann Taylor (b. 1765).

Doris Ross Johnston has also copied the information from this Bible to her web site. She has some pictures of it there as well. Click on the following link to view her information: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~madgenealogist/BodineFamily.html

Here are a couple of pictures of the Bible. Click on this link to see the cover page and on this link to see the outside binding. The Bible measures eleven inches tall, by eight inches wide, by three inches thick. Click on the highlighted links below to see the actual pages of the Bible.

Note: The entry above is in another pen and by a different hand than the other marriage entries. The "16th" is penciled in. This also appears to be a different hand (and pen) than the person who wrote the "North of Ireland" entries (see further below).
