J. H. Cossar - Unknown   
Have no information on this distant relative. The surname Cossar is most likely one of perhaps a hundred variants of the original surname Cossart; nevertheless, there remains the possibility that 'Cossar' is a misspelling of a completely unrelated name. Would appreciate learning any information others may have on this individual.
