According to the book "Our Heritage: Almond and Vicinity" by Ralph Tess, Frederick arrived in 1857 and served in the Civil War.

Frederick's naturalization papers can be found at the UWSP Archives ( and it appears he was born circa 1818 in Germany. There is also an obituary for a Doreathea Grosse (could not access it online). Attached is the obit for a Fred Gross d. 1921.

The following are buried in East German Methodist Cemetery, Section 34, Town of Almond:

Grosse, Caroline L. 21 Jul 1877 - 8 Jun 1964

thank you for the newspaper article. I had the other information, including the book. It is interesting that the newspaper article and his tombstone dropped the "E" on Grosse.
