I can not find any more records for John. I'd like to know what country he was born in and his parents names.

John married Phoebe. We know nothing more for her, other than an 1861 Canada Census that she was born in 1802 in Ontario. Their daughter was Mary Margaret. Their granddaughter was named after Phoebe.

Some US folks spell the last name "Gross" rather than "Grass" as his records and his daughter's and granddaughter's Death Records shows. Also, John's headstone is spelled "Grass".

Good morning you wonderful photographers,

I am still looking for his wife Phoebe. I know that his photo is on a Canadian Gen Web site, so please do not hi-jack it from their, but rather, when you have time go out to the cemetery and take his photo and see who else might be buried next to him. We may need to add more memorials.

Thank you hugs, Wendy and families
