The Grosc/Gross/Grohs Family

Johan Adolph Grohs (1868-1953) was born in Oldenburg Germany (no proof yet). He immigrated on 28 March 1870 on the ship Rhein landing in New York City with his parents and 4 siblings.

He went by the name Adolph. His father also went by the name of Adolph but was baptized as Georg Deidrich Adolph Grohs. Adolph Sr was born in Bruchhausen Germany. Adolph Jr. changed the spelling of their name from Gross to Grosc to try and keep his mail separate from mail addressed to his father. Adolph Jr married Anna Hasseman in 1890 at St. John's church in Cumming Township, Dodge County, Nebraska. Here is a picture of their 50th wedding anniversay.
