“To The Family As A Whole” began with a
desire to continue the genealogical research of my father, George
Kenneth McCuistion. His desire, update and correct discrepancies
found in the 1937 published work of Leona Bean McQuiston, “The McCuiston,

ancestry, as I know it. With this, I am able to celebrate all of my family.
