Gross in Westmoreland County, PA
Posted by: Susan (ID *****2719) Date: November 10, 2005 at 19:24:46
  of 2957

I am researching a Gross line from Hempfield, Westmoreland County as follows:

Christian (b 1801 PA) and Mary (b 1796) Gross. Their children include Benjamin Gross (b 1830 PA, listed as deaf and dumb on census returns); Elizabeth Gross (b 1837 PA), and Daniel Gross (1829-1903, PA). There is also an Anna Gross (b 1855) listed on the 1860 census return, but if this year of birth is correct, she is way too young to be a daugter of Mary Gross.

Daniel Gross is also listed as deaf on census returns. He married the widow Martha Baker Black (1838-1922) in 1866. Martha had a daughter, Lucetta, by her first husband, and Lucetta married Thomas Ballew and had 10 children.

Daniel and Martha had 7 children: George, William, Edward, Alice Mathilda, Anna Clara, Emma Ida, and Hester.

Anna Clara Gross Fox (1877-1947)is my great-grandmother; I also have info on Alice's line, as she married another relative of mine.

Links and comments welcome!
