I have sent the following to your emails, but figure that the rest of the Cosby family could find this interesting.
Hello George Cosby Fans! Hi there I too am searching for George Cosby information.I've written Randy and Matt beforeI think, but I don't think I written to you Wendy.I'm just passing along information from the Land Petition papers that I've reviewed last week, for George Cosby and his son George.I have photocopied and then scanned the photocopies, not the clearest way to save information but it's passable.I've also done a rough transcription of the letters and notes. So far I have reviewed the land petition for George Cosby (b. maybe 1862).He is petitioning for land in 1797 for 4 years military service ending in 1783 with Major James Roger's Kings Rangers.He came with his wife and 2 small children in 1788 to Ontario.source: Reviewed from Nation Archives Microfilm C-1647, Loyalist Land Petitions. The second land petition I've reviewed is from George Cosby (b. about 1785).He is petitioning for land because his father is a UEL.He is doing this in 1808 because he has reached the age of 22.George Sr. is deceased by this time, the petition states.
