    Notes 
    • Gustav was called August in the birth records of his son Edward Henry Fausak from St. Matthew's Lutheran Church in Jersey City NJ. All other records show Gustav (or sometimes Gustave).

      He was married at Rev. Bavendam's home in 1918, rather than in St. Matthew's church (perhaps because his intended wife was Catholic, not Lutheran); the marriage records show his birthplace as U.S. (incorrect?).

      The 1920 census records (Jersey City ED 145, 4th ward, Supr. District 9)) shows the family residing at 228 Montgomery Street, Jersey City NJ. The family is Gustav Fausack at age 23, wife May at age 21, and son Edward at age 1 8/12. The record shows May (sic) as immigrating to the US in 1902 (with Gustav), as born in Russia with German mother tongue; that information may be erroneous.

      The 1930 federal census (ED 37, 4th ward, Supr. District 7, block 236) shows Gustav (34), Mary (32), and son Edward (11) Lausak (sic) living at 234 Montgomery Street, Jersey City NJ. Gustav's birthplace is shown as New York, and his is shown as the owner of a butcher shop. Albert Emil Fausak (b 1912) remembers that Gus had a butcher shop on Mercer Street in Jersey City NJ.

      He began working at an early age (about 12) as delivery boy for a Jersey City butcher, Mr. Henry Bischoff, at 70 Mercer Street (between barrow and Grove). A few years later, when Gustav was in his late teens, Mr. Boschoff retired and sold the butcher shop to Gustav for $1. Gustav ran the shop as Fausak's Meats until some time in the early 1940's, when he sold the shop and took a job with an A&P supermarket.

      Gustav remained Lutheran through the main part of his life, but converted to Catholicism (his wife's faith) in his last few weeks of life.
