1926 Wedding Announcement: Gerald N. Costain and Lucy Lenora Houston, at Holden, Maine

Announcement of the marriage of Lucy Lenora Houston to Gerald N. Costain at Holden, Maine, on 24 June 1926.

From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome]

Lucy Lenora Houston was born 4 May 1909 at Holden, Maine, daughter of Alton J. and Ida L. (Cowing) Houston, who were born at Bucksport, Maine, and Dedham, Maine, respectively.

Lucy's paternal grandparents were John M. and Lenora (Kenney) Houston, who were both born at Bucksport, Maine.  Lucy's maternal grandparents were John and Lucy (Saunders) Cowing, who were born at Dedham, Maine, and Orland, Maine, respectively.

Gerald N. Costain was born 24 March 1906 in Maine, son of George Woodward Costain and Nellie Edith (Merrill) Costain, who were born in Canada and at Dedham, Maine, respectively.  I saw records for George Woodward Costain that showed him variously born in Maine, in New Brunswick, and in Nova Scotia.

Gerald's paternal grandparents were William and Hannah (Workman) Costain, who were born at Prince Edward Island, Canada, and Saulsbury, New Brunswick, Canada, respectively.  Gerald's maternal grandparents were John and Edith E. (Moore) Merrill, born at Bangor, Maine, and Ellsworth, Maine, respectively.
