Gustave Egge grew up in Tronheim, Norway one of the youngest of a family of nine. His parents were Olaus Andreassen Egge and Oline "Lina" Pedersdatter Wibe. Olaus had been born March 21, 1841 on the Egge farm, near Steinkjer, Stod precinct, Nord-Trøndelag, Norway, the s/o Andreas Pedersen Egge and Martha Olsdatter Lund. Lina was the d/o Peder Jacobsen Wibe and Ingeborg Olava Olsdatter Osteras. Gus was born in March of 1883. His oldest brother Peter would grow up to become a well known author of Norway. As a teenager Gustav found himself working on a Norwegian freighter. The captain turned out to be a stern, cruel ship master and when they reached New York in 1900, Gus disembarked. From there he worked his way thru Wisconsin to Washington and by the age of twenty two, courted and married Mary Alice Laprath in Elma Washington. Within ten years five children were born. The last two twin boys and the pride of the family. The family moved to Seattle and by the early twenties were living on Corliss Avenue. Gustav went to work for the Carnation Milk Co. as an engineer.

The love between Mary and Gus was a very strong bond. The warmth they had for each other permeated the family. Gustave had thinning black hair and worn gold wire rim glasses. He had a hearty smile and warm sense of humor.
