cozad and cossart may be same line just different spellings, married to mcilraths from early new jersy

Journal by klucky75

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.

I am a descendant of Hugh McIlrath (I believe). I have to look this up again it has been a while since I've looked at it. The McIrath's are a big name in East Cleveland, ohio being one of the first family.

I wrote a lot more but this website is acting up. I hope that this post can be made. :( I have family reunion napkin from the 1890's and other family items. Letters from Mrs. Carroll to Rev. Thomas McIrath in Newtownard, North Ireland (son of the founder of the Newtownard Presbyterian Church). My Great-Great Grandfather Joseph Day was a McIlrath.

These days I had been focusing on the Day family, having coming to America in 1635 and go back to 1346. But know I'm working on the Hoagland/Houglands who I'm stuck on in the 1700s. :)

BTW, I have a number of envelopes from correspondence to family members in Michigan. Would you happen to know where in Michigan they lived? Some return addresses from the 1890's to the 1930s from:

Schoolcraft MI.

RFD 7 Jackson MI
Hillsdale, Mi
Holland, MI
Fowler MI date: 1895
New Buffalo, MI Date :189?
Saint John, MI Date: 1894

Thanks for any information or referrals.

I also have a family tree from Hugh McIlrath prior to his son coming to America up until about 1930 but not complete.

To be honest I can't say that these were McIlrath's or if they were Day family.
