Jennifer: Are you still looking for Francis Pearl Gross? My mother's older brother, Francis Pearl Gross, was born 7/3/1921 in Orono, Maine, died 3/6/1996 in Orono. He was a Marine, as were his brothers, George, Donald, and Nelson. He was married to Anastasia, although I do not know her maiden name. I don't have any children listed for him, but I can fill in parents' and siblings' names, birth dates, and death dates. Let me know, and we can see if we are connected.
