ASHES OF THE LATE DR. GROSS. PHILADELPHIA, May 10.—Councilman A. Haller Gross, son of the late Dr. Samuel D. Gross; Benjamin F. Horwitz, son-in-law, and Eugene Horwitz, grandson, of the deceased physician, together with Medical Director P. J. Horwitz, of the United States Navy; Undertaker Bringhurst, and the doctor's body servant, Charles Draper, arrived in this city shortly before 8 o'clock tonight, bringing the ashes of Dr. Gross from the crematory at Washington, Penn. The ashes weigh about seven pounds, were hermitically sealed in a tin box, and placed in the coffin in which the body was recently carried to Washington. On reaching this city the coffin was removed to the late residence of Dr. Gross, and to-morrow the ashes will be inclosed in a marble urn about three feet high, unornamented and without inscription, and placed beside the coffin of Dr. Gross's late wife in the family vault in Woodland Cemetery. There will be no funeral ceremony at the house, but the Rev. Dr. Charles Currie will read the Episcopal burial service at the cemetery. The services will be strictly private. —Published in The New York Times (New York, New York), May 11, 1884, p. 1.
