My husband, Marcus Roger McCorstin, is the son of George Leon McCorstin (son of George Othel McCorstin and Mary Aline Neely McCorstin).
George "Othel" was born September 16, 1904 (In Fannin County, I believe) and passed away in Ballinger, Runnels County, Texas on June 30, 1979 of Alzheimer's Disease.
Mary "Aline" Neely McCorstin was born somewhere around 1910 (I am still trying to pin down her exact birth date) in Texas (exact location still of question but we believe in Fannin County as well) and passed away in 1977.I will ask my husband for a more exact date if you wish.
I met my husband in January of 1977 and never had the chance to meet these two people, but every story I heard and every remark made about them by their son George and his wife Dorothy was told with love and respect.They were both said to be kind, gentle, thoughtful and loving people.I believe that to be an accurate observation if their son George's behavior and temperament are a reflection of his parents'.He was a gentle and patient soul with a wonderful sense of humor and humility.
George Leon rarely spoke of Joyce and when he did the loss of his sibling was a source of obvious pain and regret.As you are her granddaughter we would love to hear from you.We are aware only of her having two daughters (names Linda and Cinda?) and the last residence I am aware of was Garland, Texas.I believe they attended the same high school as Teri (Teresa Gaye) and Randy (Randal Keith) McCorstin.Marcus attended a different high school in Garland.
Just to help you along the way regarding Othel and Aline's son and family...
George Leon McCorstin Born 22 April 1928/1929 Died 18 Aug 2001 of Alzheimer's Disease.
Dorothy Maud Oswell McCorstin Born 10 Nov 1928 in McCurtain County, Oklahoma Died 19 June 1992 in Hunt County, Texas (victim of an automobile accident).
My husband is Marcus Roger McCorstin who was born on October 22, 1954 in Dallas, Texas and is still living in that area.
I have quite a bit of history on the McCorstins that I am slowly piecing together into a history online for the reference and use of others.The majority of it comes from a distant, but trackable, relative in Alabama who was kind enough to share it with me before his death.
Unfortunately, most of the documentation regarding the immediate family was lost in the mid 1990's and I am having to research through a different branch of the family to find more on Othel and Aline.
Feel free to contact me via email if you want to continue correspondence regarding the family.I am sure my husband and his siblings would be delighted - I certainly know I would.
