I am still new to genealogy, and of coarse the Gross surname genealogy.I am a descendant of Richard Niles Gross for sure.Before that is a long list of Simons.I have talked to multiple people and I get different answers.
I seem to have a mindset that it goes
-Simon Sr. Gross -Simon II Gross -Simon III Gross (Some tell me its actually Simon Peter here, others say Peter Gross), major confusion and fustration.The marrage in Surry Co. NC confuses me too, from which wife of that particualr Simon do I descend. -Richard Niles Gross -Elisha Gross
ALso I really want to separate fact from ficton on this because I am a research oriented guy and without proper documentation, it's mostly speculation.Cynthia Groce, I have read over your replies and comments on this forumn and have a mutual respect for your knowledge on the Gross genealogy, do you have any thoughts on straightening this mess out?Any others who feel they know the parts to my puzzle, chime in and help out.
Also, have any good genealogy books been published on the Gross genealogy.Highly interested here.
