Wow, that interesting. Even so, two thoughts occur. First, Huguenots came to London via Holand from France. They were refugees and not tooooo welcome there. It seems possible that some of them went to Irland rather than to America. It also seems likely that if this happened the name would be spelled differently.
Second, memories being what they are, the Irish could have been on the matriarch side - for example One of Simon's sons, named John, Sr, called "Jersey John" by modern historians, had a son named John, Jr called "Indian John" by modern historians. Indian John married Lottie Jane (Ivers). Lottie was born in Irland. They married in Monogalia County, Virginia in about 1770. They had a ton of kids and a very exciting and well documented history. Many of their descendants are included in David Lyon's Book and history and school books in Virginia and West Virginia. There are probably other Bozarth's who married Irish. My Great Great Grandfather married, Welsh.
Keep talking to your Mom about genealogy, I promise she will remember more as she talks about family.
