I do have a George Washington Gross...he never married so not the same one as yours.
I have my doubts about my Daniel Franklin Gross having his father named John...there are no other John Grosses in our family . Since folks tend to use the same names generation after generation , why is there no John anywhere else in my family ???
Daniel was born in Lehigh County PA in 1832. He went west to Illinois as a young man and settled in Fulton County. There he married Sarah Jane Eaton . She was from Vermillion County IL. Later they moved to Lafayette County WI. I have not been able to find any siblings for Daniel or verify his parents names. I just hope one day to find someone on this message board who is connected :)
