Notes for: Margaret M. Bodine

Margaret is buried in the Hillside Cemetery in Catawissa, PA. This is the same cemetery where William Fox Bodine is buried. He was the son of Peter Bodine and Anna M. Vought. I don't know the connection between them , though.

From Ronny Bodine:

From Columbia Democrat and Bloomsburg General Advertiser of Saturday, 20 Jan 1866:
Married. On the 14th inst., by the Rev. William J. Eyer, Mr. Tobias Barlinger, and Miss Margaret Bodine, both of Catawissa, Pa.

Tobias and Margaret Berninger lived all of their married life in Catawissa. Tobias was a carpenter and cabinet maker. The 1900 census reported that in 24 years of marriage Margaret had borne 7 children of whom 6 still lived. Although her birth date was given as 21 Jan 1842 on her death certificate the year should be 1844 which appears on her grave marker and which was reported in the 1900 census.
