52 Ancesters: #6 Samuel James Bustin (1921-1962)

Samuel James Bustin, my first cousin, 2x removed, was born on this date, in 1921, in Portage Vale, Kings County, New Brunswick, Canada, the youngest of seven children born to Charles Alexander "Sandy" Bustin and Ada Elmira McNair.

In 1950, Sam married Katherine Irene Teakles, also of Portage Vale, the daughter of Brunswick Hugh Teakles and Katherine Steeves. This is a picture of Sam and Katherine, probably taken at the time of their marriage. My great grandmother's notation proves invaluable, again.

Unfortunately, Sam Bustin died suddenly at age 41, from a stroke caused by a cerebral embolism, on July 16, 1962.  He is buried in Fair Haven Memorial Park, in Moncton, New Brunswick.

Sam and Katherine had four children, Colleen, Barbara, Douglas, and Sandra. Katherine is 86 years old. 


This is the sixth in a series, “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks,” coordinated by Amy Johnson Crow at No Story Too Small.
