Sources: (1) See the Notes page for Jean Bodin. Several obituaries from early descendants of Jean Bodin say he was born in 1645. Sinnott says the day is May 9, 1645 based on a "universal tradition" in the family. No primary source has been found for this year. I believe the birth date for this Jean Bodin from Medis has been confused with the birth date for this Jean Bodin from Bethune. The sources that say Jean Bodin was born in 1645 are actually always discussing this line of Bodines from Bethune, not the line from Medis. (2) The Inventory of John Bodin, 1695 (New York County Wills, Book 5-6, page 114) taken on Feb. 11, 1695 in Richmond County (Staten Island) says John Bodin was "lately deceased." (3) Date of death is uncertain. Date of "aft Mar 7, 1737" is the date she may have signed a deed with 2nd Jean (Richmond Co. Deeds, Book D, p. 131-134). See also NY Wills, 6, p. 88; 7, p. 147 and NY Wills 7, p. 312. Shemay have lived past March or May, 1736/37, a date when a Jean Bodine signed a deed with his wife "Hester."
