"John Boddie, great grandson of William, in his sketch of the family, written 5 March 1840, says: "William Boddie was born in Virginia. He was married but once and left a widower with five children, four sons and one daughter, several years before his death. He was about six feet high, straight and well built, though thin, sallow complexioned, deep blue eyes and light hair. His wife died of mealses. He was worth about 20 negroes, gave his children 3 negroes each and 3 pounds Proclamation money." He is said to have owned "Bodie's Island" off the North Carolina Coast." "
