In the year 1880, Gus is counted aged 16, in a census for Spring River, Lawrence, Missouri, United States, living with his father (47), famer by occupation, his mother (34) and six siblings as follows: Frank (18), Edward (14), Reynold (12), Rosena (10), Henry (7) and Helena (3). All of them born in Kansas but Helena who was born in Missouri. There were also three children who died at childbirth or at a very shot age: Carl, Charles and unknown.
In 1887, at age 22, he married Mary Elizabeth Bowers, aged 20, of Indiana, United States. The couple had the following children: Paul Jent, Mabel, Laura, Julius and Louise.
