About Deborah Cozzens

She married Issachar POLLOCK in 1752 secretly. Soon after, he left for the East Indies. On his return, he denied the marriage and his son, born during his travels, and returned to England.

“ Our Dauter Deborah was born April ye 13, 1716 “

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.
