My Great grandfather Raphael Gross and his boyhood friend Leopold Strauss came to America in 1859 from K˘nigheim, Baden. They joined their brothers Isaac Gross and Philip Strauss in Worcester, MA (they had come out in 1854). In 1865 Raphael Gross married Hannah Strauss, sister of the two Strauss brothers above. I am looking for the ships they came in, their actual dates of migration, their family roots in Germany and any current descendents who would help me flesh out the Family Trees involved.
