My 3 great grandfather was Sylvester Cosart. I have info on him, but nothing on his parents or when they came here. If anyone knows anything, please help. I just visited Mud Run Cemetery in Cowden, IL and found several Cosarts buried there as well as at Mound Cem, but do not know how they connect to Sylvester. He was born on 6/4/1836 and died on 1/25/1903. He married Sarah Jones on 5/18/1854 and they had 9 kids. Names at cemeteries I found but can't connect yet: Coleta L & Harold M. Cosart, Carol Leroy and Mary Joyce Cosart, John W. Cosart, William J. Cosart, James and Rachel Cosart, Benjamin Cosart, Wanda L. & Raymond E. Cosart. If anyone recognizes these names from either Mud Run or Mound Cemeteries in Shelby Co., IL, please contact me so I can find where they may fit into my family tree. My great grandfather Clifford E Moore always said that it was hard to find someone to marry in Cowden, IL because he was related to almost everyone there at the time.
