George Nicholas Ausman was born in Dunn County, Wisconsin on May 15, 1874. He was only nine when he came with his parents, Nicholas and Anna Ausman, to Asotin.
He completed his grade school work in Asotin and graduated from Asotin High School. His father homesteaded a plot of ground just south of the present Cleveland Street in Asotin, through which immigrants passed on their way to the Anatone country.
George was one of the few youths of the time to attend college. After his first year at Washington State College, George was compelled by the panic and hard times of the early 1890s to abandon his plans to complete college, at least temporarily. He became a teacher in rural schools of Asotin County until he enlisted in the infantry after the outbreak of the Spanish-American War.
Upon his return from the war he bought a harness shop at Asotin, and spent the weekends at his homestead ranch in the Ten Mile area.
He married Grace Farrish, December 21, 1898. He sold the harness shop in 1901, and began to expand his farming interests. He farmed on Weissenfels Ridge near Anatone as well as in the Ten Mile area (about five miles south of Asotin on the Snake River).
He retained farming interests in the county up to the time of his death, and up to two months ago went on routine inspection of those lands.
He was a communicant of the Asotin Methodist Church, and served as trustee of the church for many years.
He died on 23 Nov 1956 at the age of 82. He had been in failing health for the last two months, suffering first a heart attack and then a stroke. He had been a hospital patient only five days.
