Gus was born in Genesee county New York to Josiah H and Louisiana Robinson in 1844, moved west to Cleveland, Ohio where he lived through the 1870's working as an artist. He met and married in 1884 his wife Lillian Goodwin , then traveled on in the late 1880's first to Rico, Colorado, where he mined and was the county Judge, then to Telluride, Colorado where he owned a house painting and wallpapering business for many years and enjoyed much success. He also served in various elected offices and owned several mining claims. In his spare time he painted landscapes. In the early 1900's He and Lillian retired to Mojave, California to a fertile farm he operated for several years until tragedy struck with the death of Lillian in 1910. He returned her body to Telluride, where she had desired to be buried amongst the high mountains, but her sisters back in Cleveland prevailed upon him to bring her body home to the family plot. He returned again to Mojave where he sold his farm, and after a brief spell in Telluride he moved back to Toledo and died there in 1921. Gus and Lillian had no children but they adopted the rest of their family by helping to care for the children of Gus's brothers, and also employing his brothers from time to time. He was a good man....
