Sorry for the long delay in this response to your posting. I have been researching my parents families for years, but am just beginning to research the Groce line. My mother was a Groce (who married a Coop) from Cumberland Co., KY. Her gr.gr.grandfather was Henry Gross from Surrey Co., N.C., born 1807. Her father was Emmett Groce, son of Charlie Groce, son of George Washington, Groce. I don't have any info before Henry Gross. Can you share any info with me? Thanks.
