About Benjamin Cozzens

Benjamin, the first son, was born in 1747. We can estimate the marriage of his parents to have taken place probably one or at most two years earlier. Benjamin married twice. Hannah Peckham, daughter of Isaac Peckham and Ruth Corey, born 1753 in Newport, died July 12, 1785, and Martha Congdon, born 1751 and died 1840. Benjamin died June 7, 1825. These dates are confirmed as they are all listed in the Rhode Island Historical Cemetery Project Index. The grave sites for all three are in Newport, Benjamin and Martha in the Friends Cemetery, while Hannah is in the Common burial ground.
