Gus died at his home near Andalusia on Friday evening Feb 9, 1906. He had suffered an injury some time before and it is possible that this may have been one of the causes of his illness which, until a short time before death, had not been considered alarming. He was buried in the Andulusia Cemetery Feb. 11, 1906.
