I've found a site at http://communities.msn.com/MeettheBoddies&naventryid=198http://communities.msn.com/MeettheBoddies&naventryid=198 where the Boddie line is pretty well spelled out. However, I'm either a dunce or it's very difficult to figure out how to leave a message on this site, which is a msn site.
What I want to say, and to hopefully someone to whom it'll matter is that in my husbands, Nick Van Boddie Williams Jr., family there is a step sister named Frances Brennan Williams. Her father was Henry Phillips Williams, mother Frances Brennan from Ireland, and the daughter Frances married a Nicholas Van Boddie b 5 Apr 1869 who was born in Christian Co. KY. The msn site that I mention has him born in Waco TX and I believe that it wrong. He may have died there as we know that Frances, his wife, married again to an Alan Sanford who was the mayor of Fort Worth, Texas. Frances lived with her unmarried sister Lucy in her latter years.
Also, Nicholas' wife, Frances Brennan Williams was born on 12 Dec 1868 and she married Nicholas Van Boddie on 10 Oct 1898, Battle Creek MI.
If any of you of the Boddie line know anything about the Williams line, let me know as I am still searching for others in this line that stretch back to Schocco NC and most likely onwards to Virginia.
