Josiah Bodkin/Botkins, Kanawha/Pendleton WVa.

Looking for info on Josiah Bodkin/Botkins who married Mary Jane Lynn in 1849 and had a daughter named Laura Frances who married Rev. Wm. H Browder.

Is this the same Josiah Bodkin who was in Civil War, 62nd VA Infantry? This Josiah was supposed to have enlisted in Pendleton Co., WV. The 1910 Pendleton Co. census lists a Josiah Bodkin, age 74, wife Hannah M., age 54, and a 12 yr. old stepdaughter. The only Josiah Bodkin/Botkin I could find in 1880 census on LDS site is Josiah Botkins, 54, divorced, living in household of Andrew J Botkins (his brother?).

Records for Civil War veterns says "Josiah Bodkin, 62nd VA Infantry, b. 1835? ... was living in Franklin (Pendleton Co.) WVa. in 1822." Most info I've seen on Josiah, husband of MJ Lynn says he was born in 1826.

Does anyone know if this is the same guy?
