Moses Amariah Costner and Maude Langston Costner and some of their children
I am re-posting this because it is from a much sharper print owned by Bonnie McMullan, whose grandmother was Uncle Mode's sister Ida Costner (as my grandfather was Uncle Mode's brother Edgar Lugene Costner). James Keith Head, himself a Costner and a Bell, just discovered Bonnie's web site. I am delighted at meeting this double second cousin--double since Bonnie's grandmother Emma Bell was my grandmother Costner's sister. We kept things in the family very well in Scotland and in the South. Does anyone have a consanguinity chart so we can see just how close kin are these double second cousins with bonus points for old marriages of first cousins? James, thank you for finding Bonnie!
