Hello Mr.Steven Cozart! My name is Mr. Vernon Cozart and I live inAtlanta, Georgia. I was born and raised NYC. My mother was born in Richmond, Virgina. Her name was Gladys Elaine Cozart(1922-1998). A copy of the 1930 Census for Richmond, Va. shows my mother at age eight(8) and living with her mother and father. I have never met my grandparents. My maternal grandparents were Joseph Cozart, born in Granville County, N.C. 18 June 1884- died unknown, and Lucy Cozart, birthplace I believe to be (Richmond?) Virgina but I really don't know. I also am not aware of her maiden name.My mother only had one(1) sibling that I am aware of and that was my Uncle Lewis. My mother had always told us that Uncle Lewis fought in WWI.I viewed a image of a WWI draft card and saw his signature. My mother always told us that COZART is a slave name. I thought it was Slavic in origin, definitely not French. I asked my mother a few years before she died, how did our family come to live in Virgina? Joseph Cozart was Bootlegger.
