I am originally from Syracuse, where all of my relatives still live, and my paternal grandmother's name was Bustin.Maybe there is a link between our families.Here is some information on my Bustin ancestors:

John Bustin, b. abt. 1848, d. 9 Oct 1899 in New York State.Said to have been a Seaman on the USS Pittsburgh.Married Margaret Ellicott.Parents of:

I found some other information on Bustins in the Syracuse area but I don't know if there is any connection to my family.Buried in St. Mary's Cemetery, Town of Dewitt (Syracuse area):Bustin, George 1880-1913; Bustin, James 1873-1881; Bustin, Mary 1845-1928; and Bustin, Michael 1850-1923.
Hope this is of some help.I have some other information on Bustins from NYS census research.
