Phillip Osborne resigned his half to Elihu Randolph on 19 July

appearing there in the census of that year. The name of his 1st

She was the mother of perhaps five children (Jane, James, a son,
Andrew, Abigail). He married his 2nd wife, Sarah Twitty, the
widow of Mr. Mackey, on 19 Sep 1838 in Jefferson Co. James Bodine
died intestate, but Sarah left a will dated 28 Jan 1842, leaving

from 1830 to 1850, but not thereafter. The 1850 census states
his age to be 67 and born in Virginia. On 20 Jan 1851, in Frederick
Co., VA, Henry Bodine, age 70 on the 14th of October last, a
resident of Waterford, Loudoun Co., filed for a pension. He filed

pension request was rejected. He was married to Jane _____, who

Children of James Bodine
and his 2nd wife, Sarah Russell:
7. Abigail Bodine, was
born 24 Sep 1803 "on the French Broad River in East Tennessee"
according to the biography of her son, James B. Snow, published
in Goodspeed's History of Tennessee, 1887, for the counties
including Obion, and was probably named after her paternal grandmother.
Although this biographical account fails to name her parents,
by mentioning her place of birth it virtually assures the identity
of her father as James Bodine. She died 17 June 1861 in Weakley
Co., TN having lived successively in Bedford, Madison, Henderson
and Weakley Cos. She was married 4 Feb 1819 in Bedford Co. to
Levi R. Snow. Levi was b. 25 Feb 1792 in NC; d. 31 May 1869 in
Kaufmann Co., TX, and buried there in Kaufman Cemetery.
