I do not have any records on the Bozarths although there is a periodical on Bozarth matters, the Bozarth Beacon, which may be of use to you. I do have some iformation which may be of interest to you. My sources tell me that John Bozorth was born about 1714 in Burlington County, New Jersey and that he died about October 1760 in Frederick County, Virginia. He married Innocent Borden July 13, 1734 in Burlington County, New Jersey. John was the son of Simon Bozorth and Mary Marson. Innocent was the daughter of James Borden and Mary {Last Name Unknown}. The Borden family history is fairly well documented and somewhat interesting. Let me know if you want to know more about it. At any rate, John and Innocent had a son Joseph who was born about 1735 in Burlington County, New Jersey and who died in Nelson County in 1790. Joseph had married Elizabeth {last name unknown}apparently in 1755 in Virginia or what is now West Virginia and is my ancestor. I do not know the names of any siblings of Joseph or even if he had any. My information is that Elizabeth died after 1820 in Kentucky and that she and Joseph had two children, Jonathan and ELizabeth. An interesting story is that Josephs widow, Elizabeth, married a widower, Veazy Alexander April 7, 1791 in Bardstown, Nelson County and 7 years later Elizabeths son, Jonathan married Elizabeths stepdaughter, Lucy Alexander.

That is all the info I have about the Bozorths in Kentucky.
