I have been told of a PETER BODWAY whose daughter Elizabeth was born in Ft. Covington NY in 1890.Was told she had 11 siblings, but I don't have their names.Peter is said to have been born in Canada, where his name may have been Beaudoin. The person who gave me this information had a card from a funeral with the name A. BEAUDOIN written on the back, but he didn't know who that was.
Also in Franklin Co. in Brushton, there is a St. Mary's Cem. where several Bodways are buried.There is ALFRED A. BODWAY 1894-1932, DAVID A. BODWAY 1923-1991, FLORENCE BODWAY JOCK 1891-1947, and MINNIE BODWAY JOCK 1896-1918.Florence Bodway's father was BENJAMIN BODWAY.Don't know any more about him.Minnie may have been Florence's sister.
Was also told of a BODWAY family near Saranac Lake NY who later moved to Watertown NY.This was ALFRED BODWAY b.abt. 1890, d.1960 in Watertown.
