Death: May 27, 1924

Augustus Rudolph Biagi, known as Gus to family and friends, was the son of Italian immigrants. He was born in New York, New York. He was co-owner of the Mount Holly Fireworks Company in Mount Holly, New Jersey at the time of his death. He was 30 years old.

He died tragically in an explosion at the factory with one of his partners, co-owner, Maria a/k/a Mary Centrelli-Corrato. The other partner, Mary's husband, Michael Corrato was away on business selling firework displays in Trenton, New Jersey at the time of the explosion.

Gus left behind a wife, Lucille a/k/a Lucy Farfone-Biagi, of Italian decent, and their two children, daughter Agnes B. Biagi, age 10 and a son, Rudolph Ellsworth Biagi, age 5 years old. They lived in both Mount Holly and Brooklyn at 468 Madison Street, Brooklyn, New York.

On June 1, 1915, Gus worked in New York as a bookkeeper, and rented with his wife Lucy and their daughter Agnes at 320 Pleasant Avenue, New York, New York located around 118th Street.

By January 6, 1920, Gus was renting at 210 West Washington Street, Mount Holly, New Jersey and was employed as a foreman at a canning factory in Mount Holly, New Jersey before he became a partner in the Mount Holly Fireworks Company in March of 1924, only two months before his untimely death.

Living with Gus and his wife and children in 1920 were his two brother-in-laws, his wife's brothers, Michael Farfone, age 24 and Richard Farfone, age 19. Michael was a salesman at a grocery store and Richard was a railroad wire installer.

Gus had also lived at one time in Reading, Pennsylvania.

Gus' family originally was going to have him buried in Mount Holly, New Jersey, but although the grave in St. Mary's Cemetery in Mount Holly was ready for his burial, at the last minute his wife, Lucy, decided instead to bury him in Calvary Cemetery, Queens, New York. He was buried on Saturday, May, 31, 1924.
