My Mother's name is Leona Francis Cazad!  Not Francis Leona Cozad    But Thanks for trying.  And yes, We are related to the Cozads of Cozad,Nebraska.  ie=Robert Henri  (Cozad)  A somewhat famous painter,using his French ancestry to help his situation.  Pronounced Ro bear  onray.   There is a museum there in His name. A story I was told -two brothers came up from New Orleans,one went East and one went West(The balad of Ringo-sung by Loren Green(Bonanza)))  I was told this story before the song came out. According to Bro' Paul's work,Our people came out of New Jersey,and near Clarksburg,WV.
