Coss Early Origins



The surname Coss was first found in Mecklenburg, where the Koss family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation, and would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. Over time, the Koss family name branched into other houses, where their influence continued to be felt because of the important role they played in the local social and political affairs.
