I am not a descendant of the Guss Family. My wife is a descendant of the Wilkinson Family and in my research I came across a book titled: " My Wife's Family" by Noah H. Bradley. Noah's wife was Hazel May Guss and a descendant of Annie Jackson Wilkinson. Anyway in this book there is a considerable amount of information on the Guss Family going back to Charles Guss who was born in Baden, Germany in 1732. Good Luck to you Guss Family members in your research.
