Surname Saturday - Texican's Pops

It's no secret that Texican didn't know his Dad, who left the family when he was a wee tot. But as a very young boy, and young man joined their family, and became everything a Dad could be. Texican's stepfather was named Edwin Darl Custer. Fortunately, he lived to see Texican grow into a man. But not long enough for me to meet him. "Eddie" or "Pops" as Texican knew him, passed away in 1974, and I count it a great loss I never knew him. The tales his family shares today warm you through and through.

It is in Eddie's honor we follow his Custer line today, and that of Texican's three siblings born to Eddie and Betty, Texican's mother.

Unfortunately, this is about as far as I have come with this. It is my hope to eventually be able to get a comprehensive and as complete as possible family tree for my brother and sister-in-laws as I can.
