I can not remember all of the details But I met her in my yonger years.
My younger brother Leroy was in the Laurel County Court system, So I got to hear the stories on How tough the Judges were. This is what got me to searching.
When I come back to Laurel County after being gone. I went back to the Court House and all of the old pictures that I seen as a child were not on the wall any more.
So I got to asking Questions to where the pictures went to.
My Hiram Johnson was one amoung the pictures that I remembered the most. I did not find any trace of him at all.
From what I gather the pictures were removed to paint the walls and did not get put back up
I have not been back up there since last year to see if they located My Hiram Johnson.

You are very welcome for the pictures.

I have many more pictures that I am trying to place in here.
If every one got back to me It would be all done.
THANK YOU for getting back to me, Know I can move on to the next person.

Ann Watkins Gross 1915-2011

ASHLAND Ann Watkins Gross, a longtime resident of London, Ky., died Wednesday, May 25, 2011, in Ashland. She was 96 years old.

Ann was born in 1915 in the Qu'Appelle plains in Broadview, Saskatchewan, Canada, but lived all her life in London. She was preceded in death by her husband, John D Gross Jr.; her son, William Herzig Gross; and her grandson, Bill Hudson Gross.

Ann and John D owned College Hill Lumber Co. and later they would together serve Laurel County when John D was, like his father, John D Gross Sr., elected as Laurel County District Court judge-executive. Ann worked side by side with him in the London Courthouse and throughout the county. She was a devoted, longtime member of the First Christian Church of London where she enjoyed lifelong friendships and fellowship. She was also a great traveler and enjoyed extensive travel with her family and friends and was a golf and bridge enthusiast.

In her later years, she was a doting great-grandmother to her great-grandchildren, Bill H Gross Jr. "Buzz" Bleau, Jorden, Arden and Loren "Little Britches." She was often found at orchestra concerts, softball and basketball games cheering on both teams. Occasionally, you might find her spelunking through caves, hunting arrowheads or digging wildflowers. Ann loved her family, her friends and her faith and the time spent together was always happy, enthusiastic and conversation-filled.

She is survived her grandson, John D Gross III and his wife, Kimberly Larsen Gross, and her great-grandchildren, U.S. Marines Staff Sgt. Bill H Gross Jr., Bleau Hudson Gross, Jorden Alexis Gross, Arden Annastasia Gross and Loren Arrington Gross, all of whom brought her great pride and joy. Other surviving family members include a sister, Betty Nein of Cincinnati, Ohio, and a brother, Fred Watkins of Kentucky as well as several nieces and nephews. She was additionally blessed with her dear caregiver, friend and confidant of many years, Ann Larsen of Ashland.

House-Rawlings Funeral Home, 510 E. Fourth St., London, (606) 864-2158 has been entrusted with the arrangements for Sunday, May 29.

If preferred in lieu of flowers, gifts in memoriam of Ann Gross may be sent to First Christian Church of London, 303 N. Main St., London, KY 40741.
