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 before I 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. Source: Reviewed from Nation Archives Microfilm C-1650, Loyalist Land Petitions
