I was wondering if anyone could possibly tell me any information on a Anna BODEY/BODIE that was born in Flint, Indiana (Stueben Co.). She married a George W. MYERS, and had children & lived in LaGrange County in the late 1890's. Any information on this family, would be greatly appreciated, due to the fact I am at a standstill with my relatives. Thank you very much!!!
