From Find-a-Grave, we have the following information about the couple:
"Gustav was born in Platte County, Nebraska. He was educated in a county school and moved to Oklahoma as a young man appearing on the 1910 census in Meno Township in Major county, Oklahoma, where he bought a farm. He met his future wife at a combined church function. He attended Zion Lutheran at Lahoma and she attended Trinity Lutheran at Glenella. She was also born in Nebraska and her parents had also moved to Oklahoma from Nebraska. They were married April 13, 1913, at Zion Lutheran Church at Lahoma, Oklahoma. About 1920, they bought a farm just east of Perry, Oklahoma, where they lived until 1925 when they moved back to Columbus, Nebraska. The Perry farm stayed in the family for many years until it was sold. "
