My great grandfather, John Gust with his wife Augusta Louisa Piepkorn Gust and their family immigrated to the United States and settled in Udolpho Township, Mower County, Minnesota in the early 1870's. We believe they came from Stettin, Pommern, Prussia. The children were Louise, Rudolph Charles (my grandfather), Paul (later Just), Emmil, Anne, Francis and Ella. The mother, Augusta, and some of her children went to South Dakota to homestead sometime in the late 1880's. I am trying to find more information about the family before they immigrated and then branches of the family since that time. I believe most of the records from Pommern are in Berlin. If anyone has information, I would be happy to share what I have also. Donnetta Spink
