Jesse Cozine Obituary
Jesse Cozine, one of the pioneer settlers on the old reservation died Monday at the home of his son, C. C. Cozine of Paddock township. Deceased was 73 years old and had resided with his son Chauncey C. Cozine for many years. Deceased was a member of the United Brethern church but owing to the fact that Rev. Caldwell is at Hastings, his funeral services will be held at the Evangelical Church tomorrow and Rev. John Richards of the Baptist Church at this place will conduct the funeral services. Uncle Jessie Cozine as he was familiarly known was highly esteemed for his many noble traits of character. The writer bows his head in sorrow with those who mourn his loss. Those friends of the family who wish to attend the funeral tomorrow can inquire of Drummitt and Jannsen as to the time of the funeral. JESSE COZINE. Among the honorable citizens of Paddock Township, Gage County, no one more worthily represents its farming interests than the gentleman whose name stands at the head of this sketch. He is a native of Indiana, born in Dearborn County, December 11, 1822. When he was but six years old he had the misfortune to lose his father, John Cozine, an honorable, intelligent and upright man. The mother of our subject, whose maiden name was Abigail Bruce, after the death of her first husband became the wife of Edmund Chisman. After his father's death our subject was reared in the home of his grandmother, Tabitha Bruce, with whom he lived until he grew to manhood. He was active, enterprising young man, and at an early age was enabled to establish a comfortable home of his own, and June 30, 1845, was married to Miss Martha Clarke. She was indeed a helpmate in the truest sense of the word, and to her cheerful assistance and kind counsel he was much indebted for his success in !
life.
Mrs. Cozine was a devoted and valued member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and her earnestness and sterling worth secured her many warm friends, and her death April 23, 1876, at the age of forty-seven years, was felt to be a personal loss by many besides the bereaved family. To her and her husband were born eleven children, five of whom survive, and the following is their record: Samuel. born June 13, 1846; Nancy Q., born May 21, 1848, died November 10, 1864; Abigail, born October 19, 1850; William R., born March 29, 1853, died November 17, 1879; John A., born July 27, 1856; Jacob C., born February 28, 1858, died March 11, 1861; Chancy C., born May 11, 1861; Robert D., May 10, 1863; Elizabeth R., born June 23, 1865, died October 4, 1879; Henry A. Newton, born March 7, 1867, died September 17, 1879; Mary M., born April 17, 1869. Samuel Cozine married Emma McVicker, and they live at Iowa Falls; John married Eliza Smith, and they live in Barber County, Kansas; Robert married Elfa Bunnell, and they live in Washington County, Kansas; Abigail married Francis Parrott, and they live near Iowa City.
The paternal grandparents of our subject were Martin Cozine and Elizabeth Smith, of Indiana and Ohio respectively, the grandfather of Scotch ancestry and the grandmother of English. Mr. Cozine lost his life by the blowing up of a steamer on the Mississippi River between New Orleans and St. Louis. The grandmother died in Dearborn County, Indiana.
In 1850 our subject removed with his family to Iowa, and they stayed there until 1879, when they came to Nebraska. Mr. Cozine purchased 160 acres of unbroken prairie land on section 24, Paddock Township, from the Government, paying $3.50 an acre therefor. By persistent energy and well directed toil he has reclaimed this wild bit of prairie, and improved it into one of the finest farms in this vicinity, its present value being $25 and acre, and he has it all under good cultivation and well fenced. He has erected a substantial, commodious dwelling, stable, and other necessary farm buildings.
Mr. Cozine is a man whose integrity is above reproach; his neighbors find in him a true and obliging friend, and to his family, of whom he has reason to be proud, he is the kindest and most indulgent of fathers. In his political views our subject is a strong adherent of the Republican party, and he has reared his sons to be stalwart Republicans.

Jesse's father died at age 26.  Jesse did not stay with his mother and stepfather, Mr. Chisman.  He went to live with his grandmother, Tabitha Bruce.
After Jesse and Martha Clarke were married they lived in Indiana until 1850 when they move to Iowa.  In 1879 they moved to Nebraska 5 miles east of Odell and one half mile south, bought government land at $3.50 an acre. This was 160 acres of unbroken prairie land in Paddock Township, which was to become one of the finest farms in the vicinity.  This land was part of the Otow Indian Reservation.

The Biography of William H. COZINE
Pages 366-367, transcribed in full by Danni Hopkins
[Surnames: BEADLES, COZINE, HERBERT, SHUMAN, STANBURY, OLMSTEAD, VANARSDALE, YARNELL]
    WILLIAM H. COZINE is known as one of the most skillful and intelligent machinists and blacksmiths in all Fulton County, and his business as such, which he is conducting in Lewistown, is extensive and lucrative. He is prominent in the public life of this municipality as a member of the City Council, and his active interest in its welfare and sagacious, well-trained mind make his aid invaluable as a civic official.
    January 4, 1841, was the date of the birth of our subject in Hendricks County, Ind. His great-grandfather, Garrett Cozine, was a native of Pennsylvania and was of early German ancestry. He was reared and married in Pennsylvania and removed from there to Kentucky. He became a pioneer of Mercer County, where he dwelt until 1835. Once more he became a pioneer, removing from thence to the wild of Hendricks County, Ind., where he bought land and improved a farm. He there died at the ripe old age of eighty-four years, his wife having died two years previously at the same age. Her maiden name was Shuman and she was born in Germany.
    Cornelius Cozine, the grandfather of our subject, was a farmer and spent his entire life in Kentucky. The maiden name of his wife was Jennie Vanarasdale, and she was also a native of Kentucky. Their son Garrett, father of our subject, was born in that State, near Harrisburg, in Mercer County. He emigrated from there to Indiana, and became an early settler of Hendricks County. He was accompanied thither by his wife and children, and they took up their abode on a tract of timber land, which he had leased. He cleared much of it, and lived on it until 1852. Again he became a pioneer and in that year started westward with his wife and five children, and came to Fulton County. On his arrival here he leased a farm for a time, and then bought one in Lewistown Township, which he developed into a fine piece of property and there death rounded out his busy life in 1888. His wife had preceded him in death, dying in 1872. Her maiden name was Susan R. Beadles. She was a daughter of John Beadles and a granddaughter of Niel Beadles. For her family history see sketch of N. Beadles. [page 621]
    William Cozine, of whom these lines are written, was one of thirteen children, and was a lad of ten years when he came to this county with his parents. He has a vivid remembrance of his early home in Hendricks County, and of the incidents of pioneer life there. There were no railroads in Indiana when he was a child and that section of the country where his people lived was sparsely settled. The nearest mill was at Indianapolis, twenty-six miles distant, and it was operated by a tread power. The highways of travel were rough and at times almost impassable, and a rude corduroy road extended most of the way from Hendricks County to Indianapolis. William attended school and assisted on his father's farm until he was eighteen years old, when he engaged with Joseph Yarnell as an apprentice to learn of him the trade of a blacksmith. He subsequently went into the low shops of Thomas Stanbury, and worked under his instruction a year and a half, his motive being to more thoroughly learn the trade of a machinist, for which he seemed to have a particular genius. He then opened a machine and blacksmith shop in Lewistown and with the exception of three years, has carried on business in this city continuously since that time. He is celebrated as a fine workman and he employs only the most skilled men and has built up an extensive trade.
    In 1862 Mr. Cozine was wedded to Ann Eliza Herbert. The estimable lady is a native of Lewistown and a daughter of James and Anna (Olmstead) Herbert. Harry, the first child of our subject and his wife, died when six years old. They have three children living: Charles H., Willard C., and Blanche.
    Mr. Cozine is classed among the best citizens of the city, both as regards his private life, which is irreproachable, and his civic capacity in which he has acted without stain. His fellow-citizens appreciating his worth, his sound business talent and genuine integrity have called him to take part in the management of municipal affairs and he is now serving his eighth year as a member of the City Council. He uses his political influence in favor of the Democratic party. Religiously, he and his wife, who are sincere Christian people, are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
