Gool G. Gunhus is a younger brother to my gg-grandfather Erick G. Gunhus. When the family came to the United States they first resided in Wisconsin. Whereas Erick and two of his brothers ended up in Rice County, Minnesota, Gool remained in Wisconsin. According to Gool's county biography he first lived in Rock County, Wisconsin. This agrees with census records showing that his step-father and younger siblings were also living in Rock County in 1850. I have been unable to find where Erick Gunhus was during the 1850 census. Until I find sometype of confirmation I will have to assume that he was living in Rock County also. Erick's and Gool's mother is not listed in the 1850 census. It is safe to assume that she died sometime between July 1849 when records show her and her family arriving in New York and August 1850 when the census was completed for them.
