My wife's grandfather was ERNEST ALBERT GUST.He was born in Germany on JAN. 21,1865.
He was married to MARY ANN MUNZYNAKIE (possibly MUSZYNSKI or MUSZYNSKE).
ERBEST ALBERT"s father was D.K Gust.(Name unknown, only initials)
MARY ANN'S father was LUCAS (MUNZYNAKIE)
Her mother's maiden name was JESEFA KUHN.
These were all from Germany.
Ernest and Mary Ann migrated to the U.S. sometime between 1907--1909.We know this, because they had a son, BRUNESLOW, who died in GALVESTON, TEXAS, in 1909. and we know he was born in Germany.This GUST family, upon leaving Germany, had at least five children. BURNICE, ANDREW, LUKE, BRUNESLOW, and another baby, name unknown, who died, and was buried at sea.BRUNESLOW was either killed (run over by a trolley in Galveston, Texas) or died with Pneumonia. Unsure which.Another son, WILLIAM (WILLIE) was born in Houston, Texas on April 1, 1911.
We have notes of ERNEST ALBERT showing he worked in a soap factory in Houston for awhile, then moved to the Bonneyview, or Bonnieview, area of REFUGIO COUNTY, TEXAS. near Woodsboro.They farmed awhile there, then moved to CORPUS CHRISTI, where they died.MARY ANN died MARCH l9, l939 of injuries received in a car wreck a few months earlier.ERNEST ALBERT died MARCH 1, 1944.They are both buried in ROSE HILL CEMETERY in CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS, in the Catholic Section.
We know ERNEST ALBERT had a brother, but evidently they had a falling out and the brother left and was never heard from again.We do not know his name.
We would appreciate any information from any one who may know of this family.We do not know what part of Germany they came from, nor do we know for sure where they entered the U.S., but think maybe in GALVESTON, TEXAS.
The son born in Houston, William, was my father in law.He died in Corpus Christi, Texas on August l3, 1985. All his siblings were already dead. William Gust had four children,WILLIE LEE, (my wife)ERNEST JAMES, MARY ALICE, and BILLY JACK.Mary Alice died in Baton Rouge, Louisiana April, 2003.Willie and I live in Oklahoma, as does Ernest James and his family.Billy Jack lives in Houston, Texas.
Again, any info on this family will be appreciated.
