This tombstone was chalked and appeared to read that Amos died on September 12, 1850, age 1y 10m 11d. However, Amos was 4 years old in the 1850 census, so it is assumed he was 4y 10m 11d at the time he died, which would put his birth date atNovember 1, 1845.

Note

GEORGE GANS. Among the successful business men of eastern Ohio, the above named gentleman justly holds a prominent place. The town of Augusta, Carroll County, in which Mr. Gans has an extensive mercantile business, twenty years ago was a smallhamlet, but through the energy and push of a few progressive men like our subject it has become an active, live town. The paternal ancestors of George Gans (as the name Gans indicates) were Germans, while on the maternal side the ancestry wereIrish. John Gans, father of our subject, was born in Fayette County, Penn., November 7, 1794, the son of a farmer. At the age of twenty-one, in 1815, he came west and settled in what is now Harrison Township, Carroll Co., Ohio, where he entereda farm of 160 acres, and in the wilderness built a log house. Soon thereafter he married Miss Downs, by whom he had two children, Harriet and Elizabeth, but the angel of death ere long entered the little circle and took from the midst thefaithful wife and good mother. The father found a new companion in the person of Miss Elizabeth Cook, a native of Columbiana County, Ohio, where she grew to womanhood on her father's farm; Mr. Cook was of German descent, and was one of the earlypioneers of Columbiana County. A large family was the result of this union, of which our subject is the sixth in order of birth. After a long life of activity the father died in the fall of 1866, being about seventy-two years old.

George Gans, the subject proper of this biographical sketch, was born in Harrison Township, Carroll Co., Ohio, March 18, 1837. There he grew to manhood on his father's farm, attending the district school, and was inoculated with those principleswhich to a great extent led to the degree of success which he achieved. On March 19, 1861, he married Miss Jane Cameron, who was born in Washington Township, Carroll Co., Ohio, December 15, 1837. Mrs. Gans is of Scotch-Irish descent, and herparents were among the earliest pioneers who came to this part of the county. After marriage Mr. and Mrs. Gans settled on a farm in Washington Township, whence, after a residence there of five years, they moved to another farm; but desiring achange Mr. Gans, in 1869, came to Augusta, where he has ever since been actively connected with the mercantile business. In 1869 Mr. Gans formed a partnership for the transaction of a general business, and the firm was styled Crawford, Heston &Gans. In 1873 Mr. Crawford and Mr. Gans bought Mr. Heston's interest in the firm, the style of the firm becoming Crawford & Gans. In 1889 this firm was in possession of three stores, one room containing dry goods, groceries, notions, etc.;another room containing ready-made clothing, piece goods, gents' furnishing goods, etc., and yet another room containing a general stock of hardware. This partnership had a quiet, peaceable reign of twenty years, at the end of which time it wasmutually agreed that they would divide -- Mr. Crawford taking the dry-goods stock and building, and Mr. Gans the other two stores and buildings. In connection with this business Mr. Gans is also an extensive wool-buyer, and his success in life isdue mainly to his close attendance to business. Starting as he did with a small capital, he certainly can claim to be called a "self-made man." Mr. and Mrs. Gans are members of the Presbyterian Church, being among the most active workers of thatsociety, and in politics he is a Republican.
