JOHN B. COSGRIFF.

        John B. Cosgriff, whose constantly broadening interests brought
him prominently to the front as a merchant, sheepman and banker of
Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and Idaho, was born September 17, 1860, in
Colchester, Vermont, and passed away in Denver on the 15th of June,
1918. He was a son of John and Ellen (Barry) Cosgriff. The former was
born March 4. 1826, and departed this life January 19, 1898, after
devoting his life to the occupation of farming.

        On the 30th of July. 1900, Mr. Cosgriff was united in marriage to
Miss Bessie Marion Stewart, a daughter of William Dewitt Stewart, of
Fairfax, Vermont, who follows the profession of the law, and of Mary
(Spotford) Stewart, a native of Vermont. To Mr. and Mrs. Cosgriff were
born four children, Ellen. Stewart, John William and Edward Bailey.

My father was John B. Cosgriff born I believe in or around Burlington, Vermont.
He had three brothers: Garrett, the oldest who lived in Baltimore, Maryland;
Thomas A. Cosgriff and James E. Cosgriff.

John, Thomas and James migrated West in the 1890s and settled in Wyoming, Utah
and Colorado.  John B. was born in 1860.  Thomas was a few years older and
James a few years younger. ... my grandmother's name was Ellen Barry.

footnote p. 318
Thomas and John Cosgriff came to Colorado from Burlington, Vermont, in the
mid-seventies. For several years they operated a freight line into Denver and
invested their spare earnings in sheep. These were sent up to the vicinity of
Fort Steele in Wyoming in 1882, under the care of their trusted Mexican foreman,
Adriano Apadaca. By 1885 they had accumulated two bands of ewes and moved their
headquarters to Rawlins. In 1890 their younger brother, James E. Cosgriff, came
out from Burlington to join in the partnership. However, James Cosgriff held a
smaller interest than the others in the Cosgriff Sheep Company and was financi-
ally interested in some outside outfits outside of the Company. T. A. Cosgriff
died in 1915 and John Cosgriff in 1917, both failing to attain their sixieth
year. James E. Cosgriff died in Salt Lake City in 1938.

They (the Cosgriff brothers) were also pioneer bankers and handlers of livestock loans. The first bank
was purchased at Rawlins. It became the forerunner of twenty-seven banks
scattered over the livestock country as far west as Salt Lake City, Utah, and
Caldwell, Idaho; as far north as St. Anthony and Rexburg, Idaho, and Sheridan,
Wyoming; as far east as Denver, Colorado; and as far south as Monte Vista,
Colorado. In the southern Wyoming sheep districts, they operated from Rawlins,
Laramie, and Encampment; and financed many large and small sheep outfits all
over the Territory.
  From their other banks they performed similar services for the sheepmen of
Colorado, Utah, and Idaho.  Among larger outfits that they financed may be
mentioned L. E. Vivian of Wyoming and Colorado, and Richard Winder of Utah and
Colorado (father of a recent president of the National Wool Growers' Assoc.,
G. Norman Winder of Craig, Colorado). John Cosgriff and Richard Winder were
partners in the sheep enterprise until 1905. The Cosgriffs were highly
conservative in the margin required for loans, hence most of their customers
succeeded.

In the 1930s John Cosgriff built a hotel in Craig, Moffat Co., Colorado.
