Life of Stephen W.G. Cos...

I was Bourn 1845 at.Tenants Cove Kars Kings Co. B. I was the son of Walter Cosseboom A blacksmith their was four boys and six girls of us we lived in A little old house by the shore from the age of five years I was sent to school in A little old schoolhouse that was but A few rods from home at the age of twelve I was taken sick by overheating myself by scating and falling through the ice I lay in bed for months watched by kind friends never expected to recover for two long years my mother [Emily Ann (Ogden) Cosseboom ] watched over me night and day hoping for my recovery at lenght through the goodness of God I recovered though very much afflicted...feaversors which made me lame ... I got two cruches made and ... to walk on them I began to ... to school again where I went untill the age of seventeen when I went with my Uncle [William Cosseboom] to learn the shoemaker trade at Greenwich Kings Co. where I worked with him I worked but six months their before he moved to Long Island Queens County where I worked as Apprintise for five years during that time I was greatly troubled with those soars that broke out on my both legs and left arm bones the sise of three inches and a half in length and half inch in weth (come out) my Aunt [Mary Ann (Cosseboom) Cosseboom] did everything that lade in her power to cure me and did as we would thiss sometimes but they woould break out again towards the close of my Apprintiship I got so I could walk without my crutches the little village were we ... comprised of A half dozen houses ... in May 1867 I were baptized by Rev Tho... Vanwart and joined the free Chr... Baptis Church at the cove where I have been A member ever since I finished my apprinticeship with my Uncle and moved down to my native place to comence business for myself. On June 1st 1868 I commenced for myself I built A little shop and carried business on A small scale my father being poor could not help me I had but thirtheen dollars to invest in stock and tools I worked hard and got on by degrees. In the summer of 1869 I went on A pleasur trip to the states I went up the St. John river and halted at frederctown from thence to prince William twenty miles Above frederctown after three days ramble ... ...sted for Woodstock by steamer and ... by ...stage to Holten Main I ... with the Americans for two weeks from that part of the country I took the cars for St. Stephens I walked to Calis A state in Main after visiting those two places I took steamer at the head of St. Croix river and steamed for Easport Main After visiting that place I took the steamer New England and steamed for St. John on the following day I took steamer for home I then went to work to make up for what I spent in the fall of 1869 I bought A house and lot for which I paid one hundred and fifty dollars I furnished the house with A few chairs and a stove bed and some others little nesseries and commenced housekeeping my sister[Mary Jane Cosseboom] kept house for me in the fall of 1870 I took an apprintice for six months then I drove business some stronger by having more help his time being up then left me single handed in the summer of 18.. I finished my house the cost of it being one hundred and twenty five dollars I now begin to have things around me more comfortable and nicer than before in Nov of this year I joined the Good Templers at Princess Elexandrew lodge No 36 which I am A member to the present hoping allways to remain the samemine the order is a good one and I hope every young man of this place as well as every other place will join the socity. My sister kept house for me till december of this year when she like maney others girls got married and left me to keep Batchelor hall Alone this I did till Jan 1st 1872 when I took another apprintice and then I had help to buy the pancakes which we have after ... fashon when I have to do this job ... cooking it gives me to know what ... want in the house.
