In Reply to: Coston/Causton connection by John Causton of 243

The sister of my great grandfather, Mary Ann COSTEN, married in 1854 Weakley Co., TN. In the marriage record her maiden name is spelled CAUSTON, even though all other family records use the spellings COSTEN, COSTIN, COSTAN, and all varients of CAST_N, as well as CAWSON. There's been a family discussion since I was a child over whether the "T" is silent or pronounced.
