Hello, Judi Potts
Jonathan Bozorth (1780-1854), s/o Joseph Bozorth and Elizabeth ______, was married twice. His 1/w was step-sister Lucy Alexander, d/o Veasy Alexander and his 1/w (name unknown). His 2/w was Cynthia Gross. She died in Collin Co, TX at the home of her son Pickney.
Jonathan and Cynthia's daughter Elnora was shown in Jonathan's will as Elnora Bozarth. Elnora was married three times. Her 1/h was a Nary; her 2/h was a Hulse; and her 3/h was her 1st cousin William M. Bozorth, s/o Abner Bozorth and Fanny Means of Christian Co, KY. She was married to William M. Bozarth at the time Jonathan wrote his will.
Jonathan and Lucy's daughter Melvina Hargis was the 1/w of Hardin Hargis.
Please delete any reference to Creaux Bozarth as being father of Joseph Bozorth of Burlington Co, NJ ca 1735; Frederick Co, VA ca 1744; Monongalia Co, VA (now Greene Co, PA) ca 1779; Jefferson Co, VA/KY, ca 1780 and Nelson Co, VA/KY 1785-90. Joseph Bozorth was the s/o John Bozorth and Innocent Borden and the grandson of Simon Bozorth and Mary Mason / Marson of Burlington Co, NJ.
Creaux Bozarth is only mentioned by name in "The Horn Papers". Although the first two volumes of this three volume work are considered by researchers of the Virginia / Pennsylvania area as being a hoax, Volume Three, land records, etc, is considered as authentic material. Some of the material in the first two volumes may be correct, but there is enough "wrong" information to throw doubts on all of it. The archives in Quebec informed me years ago that they had no record of any one named Bozarth / Bozorth / Bozier, etc as being a commissioner from Quebec in the Monongalia County area, much less one named Creaux Bozarth. It would be most unlikely that the Catholic French government would have a Protestant Huguenot working for them in any capacity at that time.
Would be more than happy to exchange records with you on Jonathan's children. You can contact me by e-mail if you prefer. I will be out of town until July 20th, but I can be reached at that time at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Look forward to hearing from you at your convenience.
