    Someone on Geni made a mistake. There were two Dorothy Cossaboons. Mike Trout’s paternal great grandmother was born in 1909 and was the daughter of Thomas and Viola Cossaboon. The Dare descendant named Dorothy May Cossaboon was born on 22 July 1917 and was the daughter of Elbert Burdell Cossaboon and Sarah Dare Garrison. Sorry to disappoint, but someone did not have sufficient data. Both are listed in Millville and Cedarville census records as well as Findagrave.
