Welcome to the Gross family branch. My branch of the Gross family can be traced back to Calvin Gross, reportedly from North Carolina.

According to his death certificate and cross referenced with census records, Calvin was born on 1 Jan 1854 in North Carolina. He died on 22 Jul 1918 in Perry County, Ohio. Calvin's parents are currently unknown. For further information regarding this matter, please check out the most wanted section of the website.

Calvin's first marriage was to Martha Campbell on 7 Apr 1878 in Perry County Ohio and then after his divorce, he married Elizabeth Jane Tharp on 19 Feb 1884 in Perry County.

No children can be found born to first wife Martha as of this date and there were 11 children born during the second marriage. The first eight children grew to adulthood, married and most of them had children. The descendants of this line come from the following children: Daisy, John, Samuel, Susie, Jess, Ace and Sherman. Benjamin married but there were no children from his marriage. The last three children, Pearl, Lloyd and Elizabeth died in childhood.

Calvin and Elizabeth are presumed buried in unmarked graves in Whippstown Cemetery in Perry County Ohio.

While his descendants have spread throughout the country, all Gross male family members are encouraged to join the Gross DNA Project in hopes of making a connection.
