Gus spent several years in Coos county, Oregon. He then moved to San Francisco, where he was on the police force. He had a premonition that something was to befall the city for its great wickedness, so he came home to Missouri. He had been home just three days before the great San Francisco earthquake on April 18, 1906.

He married Mada Ann Sagaser, born 12-21-1885, on January 3, 1907.

Gus was killed in a car accident on December 24, 1930 in Macon county, Missouri. (bio by: Emily Rausch)
