SOHON, Gustavus (1825-1903), born in Tilsit, East Prussia, came to America at the age of 17. After working as a bookbinder, he enlisted in the United States Army in 1852.  During his five years as a soldier he served as artist and interpreter on several Western-exploring expeditions.  He established a photographic studio in San Francisco from 1863-1865 and thereafter returned to Washington where he operated a show business.
