This is the earliest image that we have of Abraham and Milly Cussin and their family in 1899. The oldest child is Louis, then sitting is Thomas and the wee girl on the floor would be Leah aged 2. The picture was in the family album of Laura Valens, Abrahams granddaughter. After identification by Philip Morrison (Cussin) Feival established that it was Abraham and indeed there are clear facial resemblances in the family pictures we have. The only issue that I have is that the [picture of Milly, if this is Milly, is not the same in the size of chin.  Therefore would this be *Mina Stakol, the mother of the three children shown and did she die at some as yet unknown date and then Abraham married Milly?


 Abraham Coussins
b. 12/10/1869
  in Zagare, Lithuania  (Kovno) m.  *Mina (Stagel –probably Stakol)   d. Glasgow, Scotland

However we also have a record that Abraham married
Milly(Amelia) Moscovitch Murnik and that she was the mother of the following children.;
This will be cleared up at some point. My father Jack always wore her wedding ring which I passed on to my daughter Rebecca. Inside is inscribed Milly.
