"Thomas P. Gustin, son of Colonel Gustin, becoming financially embarrassed while in business with his brother in New York, returned to Augusta. He was followed by his creditors who requested Coroner Ephraim Green to apprehend him. Gustin, who was seated in the store, knowing the object of Green, sprang over the counter and seizing a pistol, fired at him, the ball entering his leg near the knee. For sometime his life was dispaired of, but after painful illness he recovered. Gustin immediately escaped to the West." From 1872 Historical Directory of Sussex County, New Jersey, page 25.

Moses Gustin, whose death occurred at his residence in Troy, Pa, December 27, 1891, was born at Reading, Steuben Co., N.Y., 26 August 1812. He was the son of Samuel and Charity Gustin. He was married to Phebe Miller in 1835 and her death occured some eight years afterward. There were left to survive her two children, Sarah Louise, now Mrs. O. C. Hatfield of Watkins, N. Y., and James Madison, who died at Troy in 1886. Mr. Gustin was married again in 1857 to Mary Salisbury, eldest daughter of Captain John Salisbury of Springfield, who with their son Ray Gustin, a young man just  at his majority, survives him. Mr. Gustin moved to Troy in 1852 and established his business as a photographer, which has continued in his name til within a few years past. Moses Gustin will be remembered in this community as one of its most valued and respected citizens. His life has been characterized throughout by a broad christian charity, a genial friendly spirit, and he dies with a conscience void of offence toward God and man. As a citizen he was patriotic, public spirited, and progressive. As a friend he was both true and just, and mingled his friendly counsels with timely rebuke when the occasion called for it. As a man he was unselfish and ever devoted to the best interests of his fellow men. He was a abolitionist and republican in politics, never deviating from his party principles except, as he expressed it, to give more emphasis to his temperance sentiments than he was able to do within party lines. For many years he was an esteemed member of Priam Lodge of the independent order of Odd Fellows and at his request his brothers bore his remains tenderly to his last resting plasce. In his faith he was broad and liberal, beliving firmly in God, and his creedid best  expressed by the lines of Whittier:
"I know not where his islands lift
Their fonded palms in the air;
I only know I cannot drift
Beyond his love and care."
He was a man of remarkable intelligence, a close student and careful observer of the events of his day, and in many scientific subjects he had advanced as far as there was any substantial literature  concerning them. He spent a large amount of money and time in the endeavor to make an improved code for his signal service and his code and system of signals received high praise from government officials of this and other countries. He leaves a legacy of good example to the community in which he lived (The Troy Register, Troy, Pennsylvania, January 9, 1892).
