      [Williamson.FTW]
      Anthony Cousaar and his wife Elizabeth sold their house and lot in
      Cripple Bush, Brooklyn, March 20, 1703. See Brooklyn Deed Book, Liber 2,
      at page 190.
      "This indenture made and concluded the 20th day of March in the second
      year of the reign of Anne, by the grace of God Queen of England,
      Scotland, France ......... and in the year of our Lord God 1703 between
      Anthony Cossaer and Elizabeth Cossaer, his wife, of Cripple Boush within
      the jurisdiction of Brookland in King's County upon the Island of Nassaw,
      of the one part, and Thomas Jacobse, of the same place, of the other part
      witnesseth.
      That the said Anthony Cossaer and Elizabeth, his wife, have and in
      consideration of eight pounds good and lawful money of New York to them
      in hand paid by the said Thomas Jacobse, his heirs ...... granted,
      bargained and sold, and by these presents do grant, bargain, and sell
      unto the said Thomas Jacobse, his heirs and assigns forever and all that
      ...... certainhome lot of ground situated and being in the Cripple Bush
      ...... on the one side the same lot ........etc., etc.
      "Anthony Coosaer, 1 male, 1 wife, 1 child, 1 apprentice and no slaves."
      Freeholders of Brookland, Census of Kings County, L.I., about 1698.
      It appears to be a reasonable supposition that Anthony, with his family
      migrated to the Raritan region of New Jersey prior to 1712 with other
      settlers who left in such large numbers from the neighborhood of Brooklyn
      between 1680 and 1720. He is listed as Anthony Cozar among the early
      settlers of Piscataway Township, Middlesex Co., NJ. This list was
      published in the Boston Evening Transcript of May 3, 1916, and represents
      the leading names of the early settlers of this new colony. Later his
      name appears on the records of the Dutch Reformed Church at Raritan
      (Somerville), Somerset Co., NJ.
      Progenitors of the Crozatt, Corzatt, Cosad, Cozad, Casad, and most of the
      Cozart families.

      Baptism: Witnesses:Jean Letuer, Rachel Dircx

      Note:
      From the book: THE COSSAIRT FAMILY by Joseph A. Cossairt (received from
      Joyce Nickless)
      "The four sons of Anthony Cossart became the fathers of numerous
      families, the descendants of which are widely scattered throughout the
      United States and some foreign lands. By referring to old documents,
      church lists, etc., now on filein NY,NJ & PA, it will be found that
      about this time the family began changing the spelling of the name from
      the French & German to English and it may befound spelled in different
      ways, viz.,Cosad,Cosed,Casad and cosart. The descendants of the three
      eldest sons of Anthony's son Jacob, i.e.,Jacob,Samuel and Job, finally
      adopted COZAD as their name, while the descendants of his son Anthony,
      retained the "s" instead of a "z" in the name. Those remaining in the
      east, spelled it COSAD and those in the west later changed it to CASAD.
      (note: there are other spellings of the name. Anthony's descendants also
      used COZART and CAZORT)
      Birth Record from Reformed Dutch Church of New Amsterdam: 19November
