William was the son of William Thomas Bodensick (22 Mar 1856 - 10 Nov 1929) and Mary Anna (Bartenbacher) Bodensick (Jan 1857 - 18 May 1923).
William [1st] married Myrtle E. (McCauly/McCauley) Bodensick (13 May 1896 - 24 July 1924).
He [2nd] married Pearl Aurelia (Lewis) Bodensick (19 May 1905 - 21 Jan 1981) on 12 Oct 1923/24.
In 1938, William bought a streetcar and had it hauled to the northwest corner of McDonogh Road and Reisterstown Road in Owings Mills, Baltimore County, MD. At that time the streetcar (which became a fruit and vegetable stand) was located just opposite Craddock Lane. McDonogh Road has since been rerouted as to where it intersects with Reisterstown Road.
