Burial
BenjaminSamuelCostahusbandofEllenNellieCosta..JPG [Albert Farach March 2007] I took the picture myself back in January 2000. For some reason the condition of the tombstones has deteriorated in the Novo cemetery, and the photos I took are better than photos I could take today, due to weather erosion, moss, etc. It is therefore very fortunate that I took the pictures then. Benjamin and Ellen/Nellie did have children 1) Samuel Costa born Feb 1880, age 21 in 1901 census. (David Nathan tells me that no one seems to remember Samuel.) 2) Hannah Costa born abt 1882 3) Raphael Costa buried 4 Feb 1886 4) Sarah Costa born abt 1887. In addition to the above children of Benjamin and Ellen/Nellie, it appears that Ellen/Nellie had one child out of wedlock, burial 15 JUL 1877 burial # 10298 Novo cemetery Tombstone 9624E, Benjamin de Samuel of Castle street, Houndsditch died age 56 years, deeply lamented by his sorrowing wife,children, and sister.[Laird.ged.FTW]
