Justin was born to George Washington Guernsey and Esther Randahl in 1835. He was the 3rd of 7 children.
He is found in the 1850 Census in Fairfield, De Kalb Co, Indiana living with his family.
In 1857, at the age of 22 he marries Catherine Shaffstal. Two boys are born of this union, John and George. When the boys were just 3 and 2, Justin was killed by a falling tree.
Catherine remarries and has 7 children. John and George remain with her until they are in their 20 and them move to Idaho and Texas, respectively.
No further information is known about Justin.
He is found in the 1860 census and then is killed shortly afterwards. The place of his grave is not known by this compiler, but have I taken the last place of residence as the closes where-a-bouts, which would have been Fairfield Center in De Kalb County, Indiana.
