Mary I tried emailing this to you but it kept comming back undeliverable so Ill post it here...

My husband is a 3X great grandson of Jerret Gross b in 1824. My husbands grandmother, was the granddaughter of Hezikiah Gross twin of Jerimiah ,sons of Jerrett Gross. We've been told Jerrett was from either VA or NC. It is also said there was a family rumor that the Gross brothers came to Pikeville KY together and shortened their name from Grossman or something like that due to one of them getting into some trouble regarding a murder.No clue ? I have copies of land grants surveys for Jerret for 50 acres on Stone Coal Pikeville KY in 1853. I was wondering if you may have any info that points to Jerret being from NC oe any leads that may help find his parents?
