    • Note:
      The following article was extracted from the book,
      "Descendants of John Bodkin (1781-1855)" compiled by
      G.N. Botkin, M.A. Botkin, B.A. Botkin. (Orignal copy on file.)


      Charles Bodkin was born approximately 1737-
      1739 in Virginia. The only information obtained
      about Charles is that he had two daughters. At
      this point one must assume one of two things,
      either he moved from Augusta-Highland area or he
      died at an early age. Which of these actually
      happened is conjecture. There are three Charles
      listed in other locations that possibly could have
      been this Charles. One of these was found in
      Hampshire County, Virginia and the second in hardy
      County, West Virginia. The third Charles mentioned
      was in Kentucky, where a Charles Bodkin was
      granted 100 acres of land for three years service
      as a soldier in the Virginia line. This grant came
      under the warrenty number 2832, which was dated
      March 27, 1784.
