Notes for: Jesse Naber Bodine

From Ronny Bodine:

Jesse Bodine, age 6 in 1870 and 13 in 1880 was last living with his parents in Hahnaman, Whiteside County, Illinois. It is here assumed that Jesse F. Bodine who was born Feb 1867 in Illinois and was living 1900 in Lake, Calhoun County, Iowa is the same person. The latter reported his father was born in Michigan and mother in Iowa when, in fact, they had both been born in New Jersey, yet had lived in Michigan and Iowa. In 1900, Jesse reported that in 10 years of marriage his wife had borne 2 children, both then living. In 1910, Jesse Bodine lived with his family in Cherry Township, Stanley County, South Dakota engaged in farming. In this census he correctly reported his parents having both been born in New Jersey. This year he also reported that both of his children were still living.
