Sources: (1) Date and place based on baptism information at Raritan DRC (NJ). A newer stone has been placed at McNeal Cemetery in memory of Cornelius. It says he died at age 63 years, 3 months and 23 days. (2) Cornelius's Pennsylvania Militia Commission in Philadelphia, issued February 28, 1794, says he was 37 years old. That means he was born in 1757. (3) Som Co Hist Quar, v. 3, pp. 141-142. Listed as Bodeyn, Aberaem & Mareyte - Corneles. Sinnott gives the baptism date as November 14, 1755. LDS gave it as both 11/14/1755 and 11/14/1753 at North Branch. (4) Seneca County Coroner Inquests - 6/12/1820. (5) History of the Branch of the Bodine Family, by E.P. Bodine, Lodi, NY, 1897. (6) Year is just an estimate based on the birth date of his first child. (7) History of the Branch of the Bodine Family, by E.P. Bodine, Lodi, NY, 1897 - death date of Nov. 13, 1824. Somebody has placed a new stone for her in McNeal Cemetery saying she died on Nov. 10, 1824 at age 70 years, 6 ms & 4 ds. (8) Russel Bodine family Bible (owned by Ruth Bodine Reuther) - date. Lycoming Co. Cemetery Series, v. 9, p. 13 - died at age 83 (would be 1779). Place based on baptism information at Readington DRC (NJ). (9) 1880 Census, McHenry Co. (Richmond), IL - daughter Elizabeth McConnell lists father born NJ, mother PA. (10) Som Co Hist Quar, v. 6, pp. 68-70. Listed as Bodine, Cornelius & Maragrita - Abraham. (11) Early Germans of NJ, by Theodore Chambers. Baltimore Gen. Pub. Com. 1882. Lycoming Co. Cemetery Series (v. 9, p. 13) gives date as Dec. 25, 1862. (12) Lycoming Co. Cemetery Series, v. 9, p. 13. (13) Date and place based on baptism information at Readington DRC (NJ). His stone says he died on July 11, 1843 aged 62 years and 5 months. (14) Som Co Hist Quar, v. 6, pp. 68-70. Listed as Bodine, Cornelius & Maregreta - Peter. LDS gives the date as March 28 and one record lists his mother as Maregreta. (15) "Early Germans" & "History of West Branch" - 1843. Sinnot, p. 158 - 1846. See page 522 in "History of the West Branch Valley." (16) Birth year is a guess based on census information for this family. (17) Date based on baptism information at Readington DRC (NJ). FamilySearch.com also listed his birth year "abt. 1788." (18) 1850 Tyrone, Steuben Co., NY: John, age 63, PA, farmer. This birth place of PA does match the 1850 New York Mortality Schedule for Steuben County. That says he was born in PA, too. (19) From the 1850 New York Mortality Schedule for Steuben Co., NJ: John Bodine died Dec 1849 in Orange, Steuben County, of aranhaley, age 63, born in Penn. (20) 1880 Census, Schuyler Co. (Tyrone), NY - son George says both parents born NY. (21) Som Co Hist Quar, v. 6, p. 229. Listed as Bedine, Cornelius & Maregretje - John. (22) Steuben Farmer's Advocate (Jan. 2, 1850) - died at age 64 in Tyrone. There is conflicting information on his death date. I can only guess that December 11, 1849 makes the most sense. See my Notes page. (23) Sinnott, p. 158. Early Germans, p. 268. LDS info. History of the West Branch Valley - died 1846 at Wayne Hotel, Steuben Co., NY. (24) See Notes for various dates given for this marriage. I think the most likely is the following: Declaration of 25 July 1871 by Elizabeth Bodine, 78, of Tyrone. Schuyler County, NY, widow of John C. Bodine, to whom she was married 10 May 1811 "or thereabouts" by John Sebring, J.P. at Ovid, Seneca County, and that John C. Bodine died at Tyrone on 23 Dec 1850. (25) Early Germans of NJ, by Theodore Chambers. Baltimore Gen. Pub. Com. 1882. (26) Sinnott, p. 158. (27) From tombstone in Ovid Union Cemetery, Seneca Co., NY: 1790-1854. (28) 1850 Census, Seneca Co. (Romulus), NY - age 60, PA. (29) 1880 Census, Seneca Co. (Ovid), NY - son Cornelius lists father born PA, mother born NY. (30) Early Germans of NJ, by Theodore Chambers. Baltimore Gen. Pub. Com. 1882. Says he died "near Ovid, NY." (31) 1880 Census, Seneca Co. (Ovid), NY - Son Lewis gives father's bp as PA and mother's as NJ. (32) Sebring information had his birth year as about 1799. Other info gave it as 1794. The 1792 date was found at www.gendex.com (as well as the death date and place of birth and death). This date is calculated from his age at death: 48 yrs, 9 m, 11 d. That is cleary on his tombstone. (33) Date is from tombstone and it is clearly February 24, 1840. (34) See Notes page. (35) Early Germans of NJ, by Theodore Chambers. Baltimore Gen. Pub. Com. 1882. Our date is determined by age at death on tombstone: 70 yrs, 4 mos & 10 ds. The place they have might be Ovid which would be incorrect. Dave's Bodine Genealogy Website Email me with Revisions. Pictures welcome if under 1 MB. Click here to return to the Home Page.
