From Peder Bruce 9/11/2006: I have an e-mail buddy (Thomas Bruce of the big Bruce website) that seems to think that there is some confusion as to which George is Charles’ father. I know that George married a Stubblefield and had a number of children. She died and he married e. Quinn and had children (we think Charles was one of these) and then they divorced, He then moved to Granville County, NC and died there.

169 Eexcerpts from Forgotten Ancestors copyright 1991 by Kenneth O Sims
The spelling of this family's surname has been recorded many ways. The two known spellings used today among James Cozby's descendants are Cosby (used by descendants of his son James S. Cosby of Jefferson County, Alabama and by descendants of his son Wiley who moved to Washington County, Arkansas) and Cozby (used by descendants of his sons, William, Isaac, Abner who moved to Texas).
James Cozby signed his will in Jefferson County, Alabama on April 5, 1837, leaving all his estate to his wife Elizabeth Cozby and naming Elizabeth and his son James S. Cosby as executrix and executor. (Note that even his will recognizes the difference in the spelling of the name.) He died between that time and June 16, 1838 when the will was probated. Family traditions in all branches of this Cosby (Cozby) family say that the family came from North Carolina. The earliest certain identification of this James Cozby appears in the U.S. Census of 1820 for Buncombe County, North Carolina where he is recorded as James Cozby on page 110 and where his son Wiley is recorded as Wiley Causbey on page 125. From these 1820 census entries, we can infer that James Crosby (page 263, 1810 U.S. Census, Buncombe County, North Carolina) and James Crosby (page 126, 1800 U.S. Census, Buncombe County, North Carolina) are this same James Cozby of the 1820 Buncombe Census.
Robert Lewis Cozby has determined that this James Crosby of 1800 Buncombe and 1810 Buncombe is the same James Crosby listed in the 1800 U.S. Census for Pendleton County, South Carolina. Mr. Cozby has found a Bunconbe County land record showing that James purchased land in Buncombe on November 10, 1800 and he notes that the 1800 U.S. Census of Buncombe was certified May 2, 1801. Mr. Cozby says that these show that James Crosby moved to from Pendleton, South Carolina to Buncombe, North Carolina between the taking of the census in Pendleton and in Buncombe.The following facts can also be used to substantiate Mr. Cozby's theory:
1. Milton R. Cosby, the son of James S. Cosby and the grandson of James Cozby, in a sworn and notarized statement made by him September 26, 1921 verified that "James Crosby was the son of William Crosby, and was born at Pendleton Court-House, N.C. in 1774...."
2. There is no Pendleton Court-House North Carolina.
3. Willliam Crosby of Pendleton, South Carolina had sons James and Abner (William's estate) and James Cozby had sons William and Abner (James' estate).
4. William Crosby's estate settlement shows legatee James Cosby.
5. An original copy of a receipt for James' portion of William's estate dated 24 June 1823 is in the possession of descendants of James S. Cosby. This statement is evidently in James hand and has been in this family for 175 years. It reads: Coppy (sic) Recd 24th June 1823 of A Crosby &Wm Carson Administrator of the Estate of Wm Crosby Dec. Forty seven Dollars & 25 cents in part of my dividend of said estate. James Crozby
Evidently because James Cozby (1774) had a son named James S. Cozby and a grandson named Spencer Cozby, several researchers appear to have come to the conclusion that he was James Spencer Cozby Sr. In the absence of any indication that this may be true, this site will record that he was simply James Cozby Sr. As already noted, his will says James Cozby Sr. and refers to his son James S. Cosby (not Jr.) as though to note a difference. No record has been discovered which refers to James Cozby Sr. as James S. Cozby Sr.
James Cozby probably married in the early 1790's since the 1800 census show one male child under 10 years (Wiley ca. 1794) He moved to Jefferson County, Alabama between 1820 and January 23, 1822 when he purchased land there. His wife Elizabeth was born between 1776 and 1780 in S.C. [Some researchers, without citing any reference have recorded that his wife was Elizabeth Moore. Without a reference, this site regards this as unfounded and unreliable]. A transcript of Elizabeth's estate from Blount County was filed in Jefferson County with a petition to sell eighty acres there.
Information on the children of James Cozby, were taken from the above mentioned petition

Vicki Lais says James Cozby, Jr. came to AL about 1821.
Will written April 5, 1837; died before June 16, 1838.

Blacksmithing, Wagon, and Buggy Making
The blacksmith was absolutely necessary at one time or another to every household. He made, mended, and repaired almost every item used made of iron and wood. The small shops were found scattered over the entire countryside. The anvil rang from sunup to sundown. The smith had to sharpen the drawing knife, plows, sweeps, saws, axes, the wagons, buggies, plows, planters; make the hinges, fire dogs, wheelbarrows; mend the baby cradles, rocking chairs, bedsteads, toys, wash pots, cooking utensils, butcher knives, make handles for the saws, hoes, shovels, hammers, picks, trows, hatchets, and a multitude of other things.

[The date is the bond date, but there is no marriage return and apparently no license. Often the license was returned to the county clerk with the date of
marriage. There is none in this case. It may have been lost, never returned by the minister or J.P. or they may have actually married in another KY county.]

196 From Faye Turnbaugh in 2007: Some time after Benjamin's death in 1879, Elizabeth Jane moved to Sherman, MS and lived in a house belonging to their son William Robert. She lived in the house with 3 of their daughters and a great grandaughter. This property was willed to her daughters by William Robert (their brother) after Elizabeth's death, then to her granddaughter, Eunice Bean, after the death of Eunice's mother Sarah Allis Bruce Bean in 1945. This property is located on old Highway 78 across the road from the old cotton gen and is now owned by Phil Yates. Phil inherited it from his mother Elise Sanders Yates, Elizabeth Jane's great granddaughter.

Sept. 2008 Faye Turnbaugh sent me a photo of eye glasses owned by Elizabeth Jane Allen.
