Hi Margaret,

I realize that your posting is 10 years old but I would like to touch basis with you. Mary Ann is my cousin. Emil Gust and Henriette Knuff/Noftz are our great grandparents. Emil's death certificate does indicate that his father was Frank Gust and his mother was Constance Wrobel. I have recently found strong information that disputes this. Emil came over to America (1870) under the name of Ferdinand Gust with Ferdinand, Henriette, and Hermina Schulz. Henreitta Noffs was listed a few lines down. More info to follow if you are interested. A Johanna Gust arrived in 1871 and married Herman Schulz in 1874. Herman's death certificate lists his parents as Ferdinad Schulz and Constance Wrobel. Everything I find shows that Emil and Johanna were siblings and parents were William Gust and Henriette Arndt. Haven't been able to prove. I believe from 1880 census Florentine (listed) and Henriette are the same person and could be Emil's family. I would appreciate hearing from you.
