[NI008546] The Grosses lived intially in Eastern Romania, a part of many German agricultural communities. It appears that the community of Nua Strymba was formed about 1815. It is about 300 kilometers North West from Romania's Black Sea shore. It also appears that most of the Germans in this community came from the area around Wurtemburg, Germany. The Gross' intiallly migrated to Canada in 1903 and Katherine was born in Canada during this first stay. They then moved back to Romania, likely in 1906 or 07. Grandmother Gross' parents had planned to accompany them, but a medical problem on the part of a child they were guardians for, banned them from migration. Jacob and Annette migrated a second time, this time initially to Brazil. This took place in 1925, they were there for 22 months, and they then moved to Canada. They settled in Winnipeg. Grampa Gross re-married several times, and in the 1940's had a small farm a mile south of Beausejour Man. Grandmother Gross was born a Schmidt, married first to another Schmidt. The four daughters of the Gross marriage all married Schmidts in their initial marriages. They are buried in Brookland Cemetery, Winnipeg.

His wife sold many of the things he had made for their home after his death. He was said to have dropped the name Harrison as it made his name to long.

On one Friday afternoon the teacher requested Abe and Kitty to retire to the vestibule, where they donned their wraps and hats, knocked at the door and were received and entertained in proper form by the school.

[NI009741] The connection of the Chenoweths with the Calvert family, and hence with the Royalty of Europe, is dependent on two possible connections. Were either Mary or Ruth, as family tradition suggests, members of the Calvert Family and the House of Baltimore? Firstly, some notes from "The Chenoweth Family In America." By Shirley D. Harris, Printed by Gerald Printing Service, Scottsvbille, KY. 1994. "Family tradition has it that...John Chenoweth and Mary Calvert, daughter of Charles Calvert, Third Lord Blatimore, were married about 1705; that Mary was the daughter of the third wife of Charles Calvert, the widow Mary Banks (Thorpe), who Charles married December 16, 1701." "But acceptance of the statements in the paragraph above can be found in many writings about the Chenoweth family history written in the late 1800's and early 1900's, but outside of documentation of the marriage of Charles Cakvert to a Mary Banks (Thorpe), entries supporting the union of John and mary Calvert found in two diaries belonging to the the families of John's sons Arthur and Thomas, and an entry in a Bible which came from the family of John's eldest son John, no other, more substantial proof for any of it has ever been found." The Harris article examines the fact that in order to be married in about 1705, Mary would have been born about 1685, or about 16 years before Charles married Mary Banks. (Editor's (RRS) note: Might this discrepancy be resolved by suggesting that like a number of other Calverts, Mary Calvert was born to Charles and Mary illigitimately and/or while Mary was still married to her first husband?) The article points out that the Calverts were Catholic and the Chenoweths were Protestant, and asks suggest that if Mary was a Calvert "the union would not have been approved by the Catholic Church, and so not recorded." The article notes that John and Mary Chenowth settled on a large estate locted near the town of Joppa on the Gunpowder River, close to this river's outlet into Chesapeake Bay. The article notes that the move to Maryland took place about the time of the death of Charles Calvert, and that "John's source for this large estate was most likely an inheritance from Charles Calvert to his daughter," and "so the gift, or inheritnace of the estate in Maryland would seem a most credible reason for relocation to the New World." The Latter Day Saints records show Mary Calvert as the daughter of Charles Calvert and Mary Banks.

[NI010946] From the History of Somerset Co, page 460: ABSALOM J. CASEBEER, for many yrs one of prominent & successful merchants of Somerset, was b in Somerset Twp, Feb 15 1829. The family is of German extraction & were among 1st settlers in this region. The date of their immigration is not kwn, but was undoubtedly soon after or during the rev war. Absalom Casebeer, father of subject of this memoir, was b near Somerset in 1783. He was a weaver & farmer; his death occurred in 1853. Absalom J. was reared on farm of his father, & received a good English educ, which he made practically useful to himself & others by teaching. In 1852 he commenced merchandising in company with J.O. Kimmel. 2ys later Mr. Kimmel retired. Several changes were subsequently made, but in 1877 John K. Nable became a partner, & this partnership continued until the death of Mr. Casebeer, which occurred Jan 15 1882. Mr. Casebeer was a man of good business capacity; he was possessed of those elements of character that combine to make a man successful in almost any calling in life. Keen discrimination, sound judgment & strict integrity were salient points in his character, & no one perhaps possessed the latter trait to a greater degree than he did. Throughout his whole career as a businessman he was everywhere kwn as one strictly honorable in all his dealings. Like most self-made men, he started life with a mere pittance; & although in ill health, he accumulated a well-earned competency & an untarnished reputation. He was a man of inflexible purpose & strong convictions, & his opinions, when once formed, he adhered to with great tenacity. He never desired political preferment, but always exhibited a marked interest in political matters. During the war of the rebellion he was a staunch friend of the government; & had it not been for the fact that he was incapacitated for military serv by reason of a severe gunshot wound received in early manhood, & from which he never recovered, he would probably have entered the serv, but he gave liberally of his means for prosecution of the war, & to rebels or their sympathizers he was an implacable enemy. It is related of him that on one occasion during war he was buying goods in Baltimore, & overhearing a conversation between some membs of the firm, in which they expressed themselves as being in sympathy with secession, he immediately settled his bill with the remark that he should never buy another dollarís worth of goods in Baltimore. He was a great reader, & his mind was stored with a rich fund of general info. Among his friends he was extremely social, & by them highly esteemed for his generosity & public spirit. In 1853 Mr. Casebeer m Miss Mary d/o John A. Snyder of Somerset where she had been b. Result of this union was 10 chdn all of whom are living.
Absalom J. Casebeer b Somerset Twp, Feb 15 1829, s/o Absalom Casebeer who b near Somerset 1783, when it was still Bedford Co.
