From Ohio Death Records:

Notes to the foregoing:
1. The 1850 Mortality Schedule notes Barton M. Bodine was born in Pennsylvania. As there is no other record that indicates his place of birth, this is either correct or in error and it should read New Jersey.

2. The 1851 Orphans Court names the children of Barton Bodine as Margaret and Mary, whereas census records name them Mary M. and Elizabeth V. Bodine. Since the children were born in and lived in Ohio at this time, perhaps Margaret and Mary were actually the elder child, Mary Margaret, and the younger was incorrectly named Mary rather than Elizabeth.
