Archives: Sarah M. (Bodine) Neafie Family Bible Bible

This Bible was published in 1868 (Click here to see the cover page). It first belonged to Sarah Milliken (Bodine) Neafie, the daughter of Lewis I./J. Bodine and Mary Blake. It was given to her by her mother in October of 1868. The following inscription comes from the Bible:
presentation to Sarah M Bodine

Sarah Milliken Bodine was born on November 5, 1827 in Montgomery, Orange County, New York. Her husband was Augustus Neafie. He was born September 16, 1825. Sarah and Augustus were married on October 15, 1851 in New York.

My thanks to Kevin Elliott who sent me the images of this Bible and worked with me on transcribing it. He recovered this Bible about 1998. Sarah was Kevin's great-grandmother on his father's side.
