Hello, Sharon.I have just re-read your 5/15/99 post on http://genforum.genealogy.com/http://genforum.genealogy.com/ at the Coston Family Genealogy Forum and never made any connection until now.Also, saw your 6/19/99 post at the Moore Family Genealogy Forum.I was going over some documentation provided by my 3rd cousin once removed, James Lawrence Coston.He and I are researching the Coston’s.
Here is what we show:(James contributed most of this regarding the descendants of Julia Elizabeth Coston.)
Your g-greatmother did not marry a Coston—she was actually born a Coston, Julia Elizabeth Coston, known as “Lizzy.”I show her date of birth as July 29, 1836, in Wilmington, North Carolina, and date of death as February 28, 1924, in Gail, Borden Co., Texas.Her first marriage was to William B. Henry in Bladen County, North Carolina, on May 8, 1855.There were 2 children from this marriage, Sara E. Henry (b. abt 1856, died young) and William T. Henry (b. abt 1858, died young).The story you provided about the hunting accident must relate to this “William T. Henry?”
Julia Elizabeth Coston and husband William B. Henry moved to Texas in 1856, where both her children from this marriage were born.Also on the 1856 wagon train to Texas were Julia’s parents and siblings along with many other families, some of whom intermarried.
I don’t have the date of death yet on Julia’s first husband, William B. Henry.Perhaps it’s possible that this was the individual you referred to who may have been killed in the Civil War ?
Anyway, Julie Elizabeth (Coston) Henry re-marriedAndrew Jackson Moore, but I don’t have the marriage date.Their children which we show, but which is probably not complete, are:Jonathan (Bullie or Bully), Ruben Jasper (Rube), Pernettie (Nettie), Doyle, Isabella Victoria (Bell), and Andrew J.
Are you in Texas?
