    Barbara Jean Crandall's "Our Family Through the Years"scrapbook has him born in Cedar, Nebraska.

    A note on the back of a group photo of the Coston siblings says he "died of sickness before 1920s". In fact he died in 1933.

    According to Vernon DuBar, she was also known as Addie. DuBar spells her first name "Vedeline." Frequently spelled "Vitelline" or "Viteline" in other records. We've been told that her death certificate spells it "Vitiline."

    The Nebraska record of her marriage to John M. Coston calls her "Miss Viddline Jubar, of Omaha."

Generation: 4

  1. 8.  John W. CostonJohn W. Coston was born about 1835 in Indiana; died on 27 Sep 1865 in near Martinsville, Morgan, Indiana.

    Notes:

    Also perhaps "Joseph." Or perhaps "Castin", "Caston", or "Costin". His origins are the biggest "brick wall" in the ancestry of TNH.

    The record of his headstone, and the record of his pension (it calls his widow "Abigail Hardin", which is not a garbling of "Hatton", because by then she had remarried to John Vardemon Hardin), agree that he served in Company H, Indiana 79th Infantry Regiment, so these records surely refer to the same man. He enlisted on 15 Aug 1862 and was mustered out on 13 Jul 1865.

    Since he died in Morgan County, Indiana, it's possible that he was born there as well. The 1874 The People's guide: a business, political and religious directory of Morgan Co., Ind. lists three Costins then living in that county, any of whom could be related to our John (or Joseph):

    * M. A. Costin, farmer of Gregg Township, born in Kentucky in 1836, settled in Morgan County 1842. Democrat, Protestant.

    * R. H. Costin, farmer of Ashland Township, born in Indiana in 1850. Demcrat, Protestant.

    * William Costin, farmer of Adams Township, born in Kentucky in 1840. Democrat, Protestant.

    Gregg and Ashland townships are reasonably close to Martinsville. Adams Township is farther away, well to the north of Indianapolis.

    A John Coston of Jefferson County, Indiana, appears on a May 1865 Federal excise tax assessment list.

    A John W. Caston married Nancy St. Killes on 12 Sep 1843 at Warrick, Indiana.

    A John W. Coston appears on the 1850 US Census, age 12, in the family of Paul Coston (age 36, born in Pennsylvania) and his wife Eleanor (age 34), living at Pleasant, Hardin, Ohio. Someone on ancestry.com has submitted an "alternate information" ticket claiming that the handwritten census form actually reads "Castor", but this reading is only supportable on the line for Paul Coston himself. The last letter of the surname for all the other family members is unmistakably an "n". The handwriting is loose enough that the name could as easily be "Caston" as "Coston", but this family was clearly not named "Castor."

    John married Abigail Hatton on 5 Jan 1858 in Owen County, Indiana. Abigail (daughter of Ephraim Hatton and Elizabeth Bailey) was born about 1842 in Van Buren, Brown, Indiana; died on 24 Dec 1917 in Washington Township, Indianapolis, Marion, Indiana. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 9.  Abigail Hatton was born about 1842 in Van Buren, Brown, Indiana (daughter of Ephraim Hatton and Elizabeth Bailey); died on 24 Dec 1917 in Washington Township, Indianapolis, Marion, Indiana.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Between 1838 and 1841, Indiana
    • Alternate birth: Nov 1840, Brown County, Indiana

    Children:
    1. Katie Coston was born about 1858 in Indiana.
    2. 4. John Mitchell Coston was born on 22 Aug 1864 in Indianapolis, Marion, Indiana; died on 6 Dec 1942 in Omaha, Douglas, Nebraska.

  3. 10.  Louis JoubertLouis Joubert was born on 16 Feb 1841 in Saint-Athanase-de-Bleury, Iberville, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Québec (son of Moise Joubert and Julia Lavallée); died on 18 Dec 1919 in Decatur, Macon, Illinois; was buried on 20 Dec 1919 in Greenwood Cemetery, Decatur, Illinois.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: 26 Feb 1841, Saint-Athanase-de-Bleury, Iberville, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Québec

    Notes:

    According to Vernon DuBar, Louis Joubert and Emilie Bastien were married on 14 Apr 1864, and Louis Joubert's cause of death was "atrophic cirrhosis of the liver."

    DuBar also places Joubert as a Union soldier in Company I, 6th Illinois Cavalry. The National Park Service database confirms a Louis Joubert from Illinois in that unit, as does Find the Best.

    The 6th Illinois Cavalry fought at the Battle of Port Hudson (22 May 1863; 10,000 Union casualties, 7,500 Confederate casualties); the second Battle of Franklin (30 Nov 1864; 2,633 Union casualties, 7,300 Confederate casualties); the Battle of Nashville (15 Dec 1864; 3,061 Union casualties, 6,500 Confederate casualties); and the minor engagements the Second Battle of Memphis (21 Aug 1864) and the Battle of Okolona (22 Feb 1864).

    Thomas Shawcross adds further service details, at least some of which seem to have been obtained in correspondence with Vernon DuBar:
    JOUBERT, Lewis Private Ava Nov 19, 1861. Re-enlisted as Veteran. [PNH note: "Ava" presumably refers to the tiny town (pop. 654 in 2010) in northwest Jackson County, Illinois, about five miles west of the Joubert family farm.]

    JOUBERT, Lewis Veteran Jackson Co. Mar 30, 1864. Mustered out Nov 5, 1865.
    Further notes from Shawcross, possibly passed on from DuBar:
    [...] In researching this family, one must keep a very open mind as to how the surname was spelled. The surname was French, and the spelling of the name appears to have many variations. This is typical of many French surnames. It seems that Americans who were not of French descent were completely baffled by the French names and almost never able to spell them correctly.

    Illinois marriage record:
    JAUBER, LOUIS BASTIAN, EMILY 04/01/1864 / JACKSON

    Jul 1870 census Ora P.O., Killion Pct., Jackson, IL family 144
    In this record, the surname looks like INBART, but was probably JUBART. He is listed as b. France.

    Jun 1900 census Ora, Jackson, IL family 159. Listed as Louis JOUBART. Son George and family are family 160.

    Apr 1910 census Ora Twp., Jackson, IL family 165 listed as Louis SHUBAR.

    Discrepancy: The Jun 1900 census Town of Ora, Jackson, IL lists the birth date of Louis as Feb 1841. His death certificate says he was b. 16 Feb 1842 to Moses JOUBERT and Julia LEOVLYE. The informant was Mrs. Charles McCormick of Decatur, IL. She was his daughter Julia.
