I forgot to add there was a "Polly Bodkins" (living right next door to Levi Purdum's parents; the Levi Purdum who married Mary Bodkins is age 21 and at home still) with the Charles & Rebecca French family in the 1850 Athens County Census, Waterloo Township.
Polly Bodkins is listed as age 46. (age might be a clerical error)

Levi Purdum and Mary Ann Bodkins married 2-1-1852 in Athens County, Ohio.

"Polly Bodkins" is living with Levi Purdum and Mary (Bodkins) in the 1860 Athens County, Ohio, Waterloo Township census, age stated as 73 and blind, born "Red Stone".

Polly Bodkins is living with Levi and Mary Purdum in the 1880 census and listed as age 80 and a widow. It says she was born in Pennsylvania.

I don't know if any of this is any use to you or not, but if not now maybe later?
"Polly" might be a nickname.
