Hi Ellen,
I would agree with David that the surname is probably based on Kishinev now in Moldova.
If you are unsure of your cousin's account of the surname have you checked what is recorded in the censuses that you have? If any precede her marriage it should have the surname and even after marriage it's still worth looking, I have seen examples where a young couple shared the house with parents/in-laws. The spelling or accuracy of the census records is not at all definite but at least it may give you ideas of alternate versions of the surname.
Good luck,
Binyamin Kerman
