Biography

Virginia Gauss, also known as "Sis", was the daughter of Eugene Gauss and Henrietta Fawcett Gauss. She was born in St. Charles, Missouri and lived there with her parents until they, moved to a farm near Columbia, Missouri, along with her and her brother, Eugene, Jr. She never married.

From Bill Fawcett's book:

VIRGINIA GAUSS was born on September 18, 1853 in St. Charles, Missouri to Eugene Gauss and Henrietta Fawcett (1900 Census Boone Co MO Columbia Twn #137). By the 1880s her primary role was to assist her parents in their old age. In the spring of 1882 she helped her brother, Eugene, set up his house on the farm he bought near Samuel McCluer in Dardenne. She may also have visited her brother, C. Henry Gauss in Sedalia that spring (Letter V Fawcett to E Fawecett 4/27/1882). Virginia joined her siblings in celebrating her parents 50th wedding anniversary in mid-Februay 1894 (Letter H Gauss to L Fawcett 2/18/1894). From 1885 through 1927 she was living on Rte 9 (Carlisle Lane), 5 miles southeast of Columbia, Boone County, Missouri and was unmarried (Census 1910 #320, 1920 #8; Denver Republican 1/20/1913:5). There may be some confusion with V.F. Gauss (Gauss 1982). She died at age 76 years, 5 months, 21 days on March 9, 1930 of angina pectoris in Columbia, Missouri, but was buried at Oak Grove Cemetery in St. Charles (Geerline & Wiechens 1987:81; Cemetery Index 1919-44:24).
