Surname Registry and Queries, 2008


Researching the Costin surname:

I found my in my Mother's Bible the following information:
My mother Corrine Elizabeth Costin Newell :Her Mother Elma Corrine Costin and  
sister Nellie Dean Costin were born to Dulie Costin and Stewart Costin. (Dulie 
Costin died 06-24-1941). From what I learned Dulie Costin and Stewart were 
cousins, and he died at an early age. Dulie Costin were the children  of Chancey 
Costin and Mary Moore. I can not locate any information on Stewart Costin. 
Also in talking with my Mother over the years they lived and own a farm in Watha 
or surround area of Watha, and there were several uncles she mention. Uncle 
Oscar, Uncle Early, Uncle Mike who married Aunt Laura, and several other names , 
one being a sister who I think moved up North. I have listed on some paper work that 
is filed away. 

I've been working on this information for several years here and there. I am not very 
good at this, however I fine it very interesting. My plans were to go to Burgaw and 
look up data, and visit the cemetery.
