  • Notes 
    • There seems to be quite a bit of confusion about the Gerhardt family name. On the marriage license issued to Gus and Gusty, his name is listed as Justus Gerharth. Their children also seemed to use the name Gerhardt and Gerhart interchangeably with the names appearing differently on different documents and at different times in their lives. Gus was a farmer until 11 AM February 24, 1936 when he sold his farm at the age of 75! The Notice in the paper reads as follows.

      Having decided to quit farming I will sell at public sale on the Brokaw farm, 4 1/2 miles south of Bloomington, on route 66; 1 1/2 miles west of Haynes viaduct; 1 1/2 miles north and 1/4 mile west of Shirley. [All of the items for sale are then listed] ..and other articles too numerous to mention. Terms -- Cash. Lunch will be served by Covell M. E. church. H. P. Miller, Auctioneer and Howard Cowden, Clerk. Gus Geihart, Owner.
