from a writeup by daughter Ella:
Gustav filed for land in Oklahoma in 1907. His patent was granted in 1911. He worked for many of the old time ranches, including those of Anchor Dee and the Easterwoods, as a Bronc Buster.

I have a copy of his wedding picture to Della that I got from a relative. On the paper is a note which gives Gustav's parents as Conrad William Sinning Sr and Malinda Grunstad.

Morris IL is about 10 miles from the Kendall Co line.

His registration card for the WW1 draft shows his birth date as 1883, but I had always seen 1882.
It gives his address as RFD D, Guymon, Texas Co OK. He is described as a tall man of medium build, with blue eyes and brown hair.
