Notes for: Margaret Bodine

Here are some notes from Ronny Bodine on the possible father of this Margaret Bodine:

John Bodine, of Mansfield Township, Sussex County probably died in July 1806 as an inventory was made of his estate on 15 Aug 1806 and filed with the Sussex County court on 21 Aug 1806 by the administrator William Runkle. The estate was appraised at $494.07. No provisions were made for a widow, but among the debts owed the estate was a note of Henry Bodine for $3.31. (New Jersey Estate Files, Sussex County, no. 1107S).

There was only one Henry Bodine known to be living at this time and when Warren County was created in 1824 out of Sussex County, Henry Bodine was found as a resident of Mansfield Township, Warren County in 1830. In so far as Henry Bodine married in Sussex County in 1803, it seems evident that Henry Bodine was a son of John Bodine. Another child was likely Margaret Bodine who married in 1808, also in Sussex County.
