|Death: ||Dec. 27, 1942|
The birth date of Gus cannot be determined. In the 1880 census, Gus was with his parents, W. & Caroline Barnett and listed as 18 years of age. In 1900, he reported his birth year as 1860. For the next thirty years his birth recordings indicated the 1860's. On two census records he is listed as deaf & dumb. No census list him with parents or a wife. Gus spent his life, apparantly single, as a farm laborer in south Anderson County, TX.
His death certificate lists birth being in 1897 which is clearly incorrect. It reports the name of his father as Willis Barnette.
Gus died from enfluenza near Percilla, TX.
