Looking for Coss ancestors and cousins.My original Coss was descended from the brave old “Dutch” army that was said to “have taken Holland”.Mr. Coss having come from that country to Sussex County, New Jersey, where his son, Jacob Coss, was born, and marrying moved to Northumberland County, East Buffalo Valley, Pennsylvania, where was born to him six sons and two daughters.
Jacob’s wife of his youth dying, he married a lady by the name Mary Ckeckener, by whom he had seven sons and one daughter. The 8 children were Abraham, Jacob, Adam, James, Daniel, Benjamin, David and the one unknown girl.
My ancestor was Jacob Coss, born December 11, 1788, which was the second son by the second wife.The family settled in Belmont County, Ohio in 1800.
I am interested if anyone has any information about Jacob Coss’ first family apparently born and raised in the Northumberland County, East Buffalo Valley, Pennsylvania, or information on any of the seven brother's or one daughter descendents.My most complete line is Jacob Coss, born December 11, 1788 died December 8, 1891.
