cozad and cossart may be same line just different spellings, married to mcilraths from early new jersy
i think these last names may be just different spellings of the same family line, not sure though. my line is the mcilrath family from scotland. samuel mcilrath was a popular family first name in our line. i think samuel mcilrath from cuyahoga ohio named his son samuel aiso, they both worked for the railroad at some time. wish i knew more , but im still researching this line, my maiden name was mcilrath, not a very common name in northern michigan. my mcilrath side of the family moved from ohio in the late 1800s, to muskegon michigan. greatgreatgrandfather, james mcilrath and his wife catherine (berg) mcilrath had one son, named james, also and i think four daughters, not sure of their names right now but i know one was named hulda, one was named jenny, not sure what the others names were, but i do have the other names in with all my genealogy stuff.enough for now, many thanks kristine(mcilrath) lee in northwestern, michigan. lots of snow here today.
