Mississippi Cousins, a curiosity:

Johnston was a Ewart who married a Forney; Hunter (the great historian) was his brother-in-law, married to a Forney.
Dellinger was just a neighbor.
Not until 2 Costners (with Dellinger blood) married Bells (with Ewart blood) half a century later were the families united.
