If you go down to the posting marked Bozarth Beacon, you will see information on the first Bozarth in the US.

For grins, here is my family's story. If you compare you can see how it strays from the truth.

I was told the Bozarth name comes from Beaux Artes which in French means beautiful arts. As in the beautiful art of making love. The story says two Bozarth brothers fled to the colonies after being thrown out of court for practicing their beautiful art on the wrong people!

Not true, but a fun yarn. Did anyone else have a similar story?
