Gross, Henry (4 July 1860 19??)


HENRY GROSS, who fills a very important position in the civic government of Wausau, Wis., being superintendent of the city water works, has been a resident here since 1886. He was born July 4, 1860, in Alsace-Lorraine, Germany, and is a son of Nicholas and Christiana Gross.  


Henry Gross was five years old when his parents brought him to America. They settled on a farm in Portage County, Wis., on which they lived for a number of years and then removed to Stevens Point, where their closing years of life were passed. Henry Gross remained on the home farm in Portage County until 1886, when he came to Wausau and for fifteen years afterward was manager here for the Pabst Brewing Company. In 1901 he was first appointed superintendent of the city water works and served until 1906, and in 1910 was reappointed to the office which he has since so satisfactorily filled.


In 1889, at Ashland, Wis., Mr. Gross was married to Miss Mary Waters, a daughter of William and Mary Waters of that place.
