Trying to figure out if James Cogswell, Cogswell-297 is the same James Cogswell who died in Stewartston.  I've left my thoughts and notes on the page for Cogswell-297.  My thoughts are to head up there (3 hour drive) and search cemeteries, but there are 142 in Coos county.  I'm totally p*ssed at myself for not recording the "history of Stewartston" which indicated the Cogswells setttling there.

Going through NH Rev war pensions, there is an Amos Cogswell from Haverhill Mass.  Born in 1752.  This is a separate Amos Cogswell, although apparently a cousin to the CT one.  He did not have a son James. He is buried in Dover NH, I think that rules him out as the Colebrook Amos.  p98 of the Cogswell book.
I have also found reference to the Amos and James Cogswell of Colebrook.  It states that an Amos Cogswell was granted license to sell liquor in 1808 and was a settler in 1808.  James is listed as a settler in 1818.  It does not give any hint to their relationship.
