(2) Rootsweb.com's Cemetery Database. Date is from tombstone in St. Mary's Cemetery, Freeborn, MN. (3) 1880 Rush Twp., Rooks Co., KS: James BODINE 68 KY farmer. He is living next door to Simon Bodine. And on May 9, 1881, James Bodine filed for an invalid pension (no. 426489) in Kansas for his service as a Private with Company M, 1st Minnesota Cavalry, wherein he had served from 27 Oct 1862 to 7 Dec 1863. See more on his Notes page. (4) The year 1857 of 1867 is supposedly from his tombstone in St. Mary's Cemetery, Freeborn, MN; however, James was still alive in 1881. (5) Rootsweb.com's Cemetery Database. (6) Illinois Statewide Marriage Index 1763-1900 - county & date. This date could be May 17. (7) 1870 Census, Moscow, Freeborn Co., MN: age 45, KY. Most other references I've seen seem to say she was born in KY, not in Illinois or Indiana. (8) 1850 Census, Vermillion Co. (Clinton Twp.), IN (Oct. 25) - age 33, IL. (9) 1860 Census (Austin), Mower Co., MN - age 36, IL. This census entry needs to be checked. (10) 1850 Census, Vermillion Co. (Clinton Twp.), IN (Oct. 25) - age 14, IL.

(14) Church records: St. Mary in the Woods Catholic Church, Vigo Co., IN. Extracts located in the Terre Haute Library. (15) This date came from Don Lawse but there was no source. I don't know where he got it from. Could be in Catholic Church records of Faribault, Rice Co., MN., but that is unknown. Take this date with a grain of salt or even that there is such a marriage record. (16) 1850 Census, Vermillion Co. (Clinton Twp.), IN (Oct. 25) - age 11, IL. Birth date figured from age at death on tombstone (17 y, 8 m, 8 d). (17) 1850 Census, Vermillion Co. (Clinton Twp.), IN (Oct. 25) - age 7, IL. (18) 1860 Census (Austin), Mower Co., MN - age 18, IL.

I am assuming that the Elisha Bodine in this census is this person. (21) He was 84 years old when he died in 1929. (22) Brown/Bodine site at Family Tree Maker - date (abt 1929). (23) 1850 Census, Vermillion Co. (Clinton Twp.), IN (Oct. 25) - age 2, IL. This date comes from the tombstone. (24) 1860 Census (Austin), Mower Co., MN - age 15, IL (Samuel).

(30) Find A Grave lists her death date as Feb 25, 1881, but I don't see anything on the tombstone. (31) 1860 Census, Mower Co. (Austin), MN - age 9, IN. (32) 1860 Census, Mower Co. (Austin), MN - age 7, IN (Mark). (33) 1860 Census, Mower Co. (Austin), MN - age 6, IN. Seems to say Andrew B. (34) See James's Notes page for the date of his birth. (35) The May 1865 Minnesota State Census includes a son, Luke, living with his parents. Ages were not required reporting in this census and as he is not included in the Federal 1860 census he might have been born after June 1860. He is not named in the 1870 Minnesota census, but a son, William, is named for the first time and aged 12 years. He is believed to be the same as Luke as he cannot otherwise be reconciled with the children reported in these censuses. Based on the ages of the other children, he might have been born around 1859. See Notes. (36) 1860 Census, Mower Co. (Austin), MN - age 2/12, MN. Name is M E Bodine. (37) 1860 Census, Mower Co. (Austin), MN - age 4, IN. (38) Article in memory of Lucy, in a Tulare Co., or Porterville, CA newspaper. Brown/Bodine site at Family Tree Maker - date (March 19, 1860) & place. (39) 1880 Census, Fayette Co. (Fayette), IA - age 20, MN. (40) Article in memory of Lucy, in a Tulare Co., or Porterville, CA newspaper. (41) Information from his obituary in a Tulare Co., or Porterville, CA newspaper may give the date Jan. 6, 1860. However, he was not mentioned in the 1860 Census of Austin, Mower Co., MN. A sister, M. E. Bodine was born in early 1860 and Lucy in early 1861. I would guess Frank was born in 1862. (42) California Death Records - date and place.
