34. Thomas Gustin Aller was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. on Feb 21 1853.(6) (7) He died on Apr 30 1930 also in Brooklyn.(8)

He was also known as T. Gustin. Or possibly just Gustin.

Oddly, There is a civil war pension document for Gustin, which is only odd because the war ended when he would have been about 15.
