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) "NYGBR," v. 111 (1980), n. 1, p. 35. And "Year Book of the Holland Society NY" 1898, p. 88. These are abstracts of originals, now lost, that came from the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of Flatbush, New York. (4) Place of birth comes from her betrothal record. Info on her date of birth might is discussed in NYGBR, v. 111 (1980), p. 31 (Crocheron Family). I don't think there is any primary source for her birth date, I am guessing 1651 based on some info on the Internet but without sources. That does make sense if her husband was born in 1645. (5) Based on papers related to her father's death, she had probably died by 1697 and I would guess she died even before her husband who died in about 1695. (6) LDS had him born on March 5, 1680, probably in Rye, Sussex, England (???). I'm not sure where they got that. (7) Estate Administration (NJ Archives, Series 1, 32: 34). August 4, 1752. (8) Date based on a deed signed by Jan Van Meter and second wife, Margaret Miller. This deed was for the purchase of Virgin Spring, 250 acres in Monmouth Co., NJ Many people give the date of her death as shortly after April 26, 1709. (9) No souce - Information from notes on the Hedges family. (10) One source says 1751. (11) Raritan Reformed Dutch Baptismal Records: Jansen, Ouke and wife--Jaentien. Witnesses: Jacob and Maria Sebrige. (12) LDS also had him married to a Mary (Marytje) Lou about June of 1744. I'm not sure where this info comes from.
