There is some information in the Virginia Historical Society that mentions a Cosby family.

The Peter Cottrell listed is the son of William and Susan (Halsey) Cottrell of Henrico Co., VA who married Mary M. Cosby.

Peter and Mary M. died before 1880 in Kentucky. They had a daughter named Lillie V. Cottrell that married William Henry Harrison.

There is information listed on the Harrison family.

I don't know what amount of information is on Cosby family but it is listed.
