cossat, cozad, cossart, early american settlers

the cossat or cosart, cozad, and a few other spellings from early america. the mcilraths,cosarts, aikmans, brainards, they all kind of married brothers and sisters of their spouses family members. they all kind of came over from the old countries about the same time, to settle in the new world. like possibly new jersey, pennsylvania, ohio, iowa,. my gggrandfathers name was james mcilrath, he was born in ohio about 1850. he was being raised by solon mcilrath and eliza ann (jenne) mcilrath, not sure if they were his biological parents or not? solons fathers name was samuel mcilrath and i think his mothers maiden last name was brainard, like maybe lucy might have been her first name. solon and elizas other childrens names were samuel thompson mcilrath, who i think worked for the early railroads as soon as he was old enough to probably retirement. also their was a younger sister named jenne bell mcilrath who i think may have married a man with the last name carroll, not positive but i think someone with the last name carroll published a family line geneology book of the familys. tried to find but was no longer being published. her name was something like rose ann carrol or somthing like that? any info would be great. i know these families all lived in ohio about 1780 or 1800s. just want to know what happened to all of the cousins and other familys. my fathers name is richard mcilrath, his fathers name was lewis or louie mcilrath,grandpa louies parents names were james mcilrath and nora (downey) mcilrath, james parents names were james mcilrath and catherine (berg) mcilrath. catherine berg was born in bavria germany about 1853, she came to america as an infant. she settled with her family in ohio. catherine berg then married james mcilrath born ohio 1850 and moved to michigan (shelby) stoney lake michigan to raise a family. they had four girls and one son. grandpa james mcilrath always had a love for the water. he built boats and sailboats on the shores of stoney lake by the channel of lake michigan. grandpa and grandma mac lived in a log cabin he built, you could walk out the back door and go fishing of the dock he built. boats were everywhere around him thats why they called him captain mac. thanks for listining to my story, krisy lee

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.
