Gust family from Oshkosh, WI

OK you other Gusts out there. Move over and make room for the Gusts from Oshkosh, Winnebago County, Wisconsin. My gr-gr grandfather was Frederick Gust. In 1850 WI census, Louisa, Lena, John, Sophia, and Martin appear in Milwaukee. There is a Christian Gust in Fond du Lac. No Gusts in Oshkosh yet. 1860 census shows Friedrich, listed as a carpenter, age 45, wife Friedricka, 35, both born in Prussia, and children Gottlieb, 7, Emily, 4, Anna, 2, Theodora, 1, living in the second ward of Oshkosh. Children were listed as all being born in Wisconsin, yet none in this family were listed in the previous census anywhere in WI. Living with them was Wilhelm Hoppe, 19, listed as a teacher. My great-grandfather, Emil, was born to Freidrich and Friedricka in 1868. I am just starting my research on this family. Would like to tie them to yours if possible. Cousins? Brothers of Friedrich? From same village in Prussia?
