Cossout, Josiah

Josiah Cossout was one of several Native individuals living at Farmington, Connecticut in 1777 who petitioned the Connecticut General Assembly for a division of their common property.  However, his name does not appear on the 1759 allotment map nor on the list of names on the General Assembly allotment decision.  Cossout may have been among those who emigrated to Oneida, New York in the Brothertown project.  Sources for this biography come from the Related Digital Heritage Items listed below.
Editorial note:  Sylvester Judd transcribed of Josiah's surname as Cossout, although a closer analysis indicates that might be wrong.
