Notes

  • M G is usually referrred to by his initials, but sometimes is found asMarcus G.   In the 1860 census he is Gustavus, in 1870 it is Augustus. From these examples, we can see that the initial G is for Gus, acommon nickname for Augustus, but also for Gustavus.  Since his nameon his gravestone is M G, it seems likely his real given name wasGustavus.  But some genealogies follow the one census report to callhim Augustus.  Later censuses report him as Marcus G.
