Notes:
According to the 1900 census, Gregor Gerst was born May 1864 in Germany, and came to America in 1883.
Someone named Gregor Gerst was listed as a brewer in Baltimore in 1887, but I'm not certain if it was the same guy.
In Washington DC directories, Gregor Gerst shows up as a brewer in 1890, and a Saloon owner from 1891-1902.
