Sources: (1) His gravestone at the First Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Cranbury, New Jersey reads, "Vincent Bodine Died Apr. 28, 1833 aged 67 y." This would put his birth year either in 1765 or 1766. Since he was not considered a minor in his father's will of July 22, 1785 (at least 21 years old), then 1766 would seem to be too late. (2) Date on tombstone (First Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Cranbury, Middlesex Co., NJ) - Vincent Bodine Died Apr. 28, 1833 aged 67 y.
