Louisa Bozarth 1st white child in Greene
Posted by: Celia I Strong Date: May 19, 2000 at 00:56:09
  of 1583

The Horn Papers (written to be an historical work - but is now thought by most historians to be a work of fiction) reports that the first white child born in Greene County Pennsylvania, September 4, 1747, to Creaux and Elizabeth Bozarth was Louisa Bozarth. Is there any such person???? Who was the first white child born in Greene County???

The book sez the Creaux Bozarth family settled on Big Whiteley Creek. It goes on to report that Louisa's older brother, died June 10, 1747 at the age of four and that he was the first white person to have died and to be buried in a grave in Mohongalia County, Virginia.

Louisa and John (if they existed) would probably have been my distant cousins. I am trying to find any trace of this family.

Just to make it more interesting - if there was a Creaux Bozarth, the book sez he was involved in a conspiracy to kill THE George Washington about the end of the year 1753.

NOTE: George Washington is historically known to have been in the area around that time.
