Hi rose, no the name of Gross was changed
to Gross after the civil war by John F. Gross
and his 4 brothers. They came at least John
did from Pa. to Kansas. To a area near Topeka and he married a Annie Wilson, they
had 10 children. When he died his wife and
children moved to Independence Kansas. John
F. Gross was my g Grandfather.
See my reply regarding Park. We are related
there I am sure.
