NOTES OF LANDO H COSBY FAMILY - Lando H. Cosby was born September 29, 1891, to Oliver H. and Anna Martz Cosby at Colfax, Indiana. His grandparents were Oliver C. and Maria Chisom Cosby and John and Mary Fouts Martz. Lando was the second child, others were Bernie, Douglas, Lee, Harley and Evah. The latter two died young. As a young man, Lando went to Michigan and worked for awhile, but came back to Montgomery County, Indiana and found work as a farm hand. When he worked for Theodore Friend near Lodoga, he was attracted to their quiet, pretty daughter, Effie May. His brown eyes, dark hair and jovial nature along with being a hard worker led to romance and Alter marriage. They were married October 22, 1913 and went to housekeeping on a farm in Brown Township, Montgomery County. Effie and Lando were devoted Christian parents and were faithful life time members of the Brown Valley Christian church. Effie had a talent for writing poetry and many friends received cards, notes and letters of encouragement from her. Effie died October 28, 1961. Although Lando had been afflicted with asthma all his life he lived alone for nine years after her death. He died suddenly in his home July 8, 1970.
