About Matthew Cozzens

“ Matthew Cozzens was born in ye year 1715, November ye 12th ”

Matthew Cozzens, born 1715, and Deborah Cozzens, born 1716, were unfortunate victims of the era. Born at home, as was the custom, with probably only a local woman with some birthing experience in attendance, with the unsanitary conditions that were common, and epidemics of disease that may have been in the area, they both were unable to manage to survive. Statistics show that about half the children born at this time never reached the age of two. It is somewhat remarkable to note that these were the only infant deaths recorded, of the thirteen children born by Margaret Cozzens. It is also remarkable to note that the average life span of the remaining eleven children of this generation is just over 60 years, and this figure was reduced by two who died at sea at youthful ages.
