Archives: Adam and Sarah (Frymiur) Bodine Family Bible

The following information was sent to me by Carol Bodine, wife of Don Bodine. Don was the son of Chester Otto Bodine and Cordelia Ammons. This information comes from a Frymiur (Freemeyer-Bodine) family Bible. Carol had this Bible in her possession for a short time a few years ago. She transcribed the Bible at that time and this is what she sent me.

This Bible may have first belonged to Catherine Ann (Frymiur) Hanber. I am only guessing, but it seems like it may have then passed on to Sarah J. Freemier since it also has her family listed. Sarah was the daughter of Jacob Frymiur and Rachel Swan. She was the wife of Adam Dickerson Bodine. Adam was the son of John Blake Bodine and Anna Dickerson.

Weber Enoch Frymiur was born Dec. 16th AD 1809
Lanuck Frymiur b. March 28, 1812
Catherine Ann F. b. April 12, 1815
Sarah J. F. b. Feb. 12, 1817
Susannah Rachel b. Sept. 14, 1819
Elizabeth b. Sept. 8, 1822

Note by Dave Bodine: Since Jacob Frymiur and Rachel Swan married on May 21, 1815, it would appear that Jacob had the first three children, listed above, by another wife.
