Archives: Samuel Bodine Bible Records

This data was sent in by Brett Bodine from California and comes from leaves taken from a Bible once owned by Samuel Bodine, Brett's 6th great grandfather. Mrs. Arthur (Juanita Rogers) Brown of New York originally submitted this information to the periodical Pioneer Heritage. This can be found in v. 5 (1968), issue 2, p. 134. I believe Gene Price published volumes 1 to 10 of Pioneer Heritage between 1963 and 1973 (there may be more). The publisher's address was 70 Hillcrest Avenue, Larchmont, NY 10538. We are trying to find more information on this Bible and even get some pictures of it and the genealogical information within. In fact, we're not quite sure if the periodical was called Pioneer Heritage, Inheritance, or Heritance. If anyone knows how to get this, please contact me. The text in blue below is what I believe was added by the person who originally submitted this record to Pioneer Heritage. I added some information in teal.

I later got some more information on this Bible from Deanna Smith. She found it in a small Bodine file at the Schenectady County Historical Society (only two pages in the file). It is also in the DAR Bible Record, v. 81. It says the Bible was then in the possession of Mrs. Arthur M. Brown, 18 Myrtle Blvd., Larchmont, NY. The record may also say, "Bring up your children in the admonition of the Lord" - or else that was added by someone since I don't have it in the transcription below.
