Biography

Charlotte Elizabeth Johns was the daughter of John Jay Johns and Jane Amanda Durfee. She was commonly known as Lizzie. She married Charles Henry Gauss.

From Bill Fawcett's book:

CHARLOTTE ELIZABETH "LIZZIE" JOHNS (GAUSS) was born in 1850 in Buckingham County, Virginia to John Jay Johns and Jane A. Durfee/Dusfer (1830-aft 1910). They moved to St. Charles County, Missouri and became one of the largest landowners. She grew up on a farm below Bosehert Town, in a brick house that was moved in the early 1900s to St. Charles. Elizabeth attended Lindenwood College (1863). She married Charles Henry Gauss in ca. 1869. They lived in Sedalia (1872-82), St. Charles (1882-85), San Antonio (1885-95), St. Louis, and finally again at St. Charles (by 1906/09 [1910 Census #109]) at the Gauss/Johns House until her death. C. Elizabeth (Gauss) died on July 6, 1938 of chronic myocarditis and is buried in the Oak Grove Cemetery at St. Charles (Cemetery Registry, pp 88; Geerlig and Wichens 1987:81; Cemetery Index 1919-44:43).
